Summary
This episode of The Green Interview features George Monbiot, acclaimed British journalist and climate-change expert. As a regular, long-time columnist with Britain's Guardian newspaper, Monbiot has established a reputation as a provocative and free-thinking journalist whose work is grounded in research and thoughtful analysis. The Independent on Sunday named him among 40 intellectual prophets of the 21st century. Monbiot is the author of eight books including the best-seller Heat: How to Stop the Planet Burning, in which he demonstrated that Britain could achieve a 90 per cent reduction in carbon emissions without economic or social catastrophe. In this Green Interview, Monbiot discusses climate change, corporate power, and the erosion of democratic politics.
