Climate change – the mother of all environmental issues

The program for this week is on climate change. And specifically the Garnaut Review and where Australia is headed. We have an interview with Professor Ross Garnaut and comments from leading green and business groups. Check out the show live to air on Thursday 17 July at 9am – streamed live at 2ser or on your wireless at 107.3fm. You can also download segments onto your ipod through the itunes store.

And we have these videos from the Garnaut Forum. In fact you can even rate what he has to say. In this video, the good professor lashes out at the sceptics (in his own gentile way):

Here’s what Ross said when asked why Australia should act when other countries aren’t:

And here’s what Professor Garnaut had to say about compensating the coal industry:

New environmental radio show on 2ser (107.3 fm) in Sydney on Thursdays 9am

Australia’s no. 1 environmental podcast is launching a weekly half-hour program on Radio 2ser. (107.3fm in Sydney.) It’s Thursdays 9 to 9.30 am.

We also have a number of other media channels on the go:

Check out The Environment Show’s online community and social network. The site allows you to meet other like-minded souls, create your own groups, post ideas on the environment, ask questions, put up photos of pristine natural environments you’ve travelled to, and promote your environmental cause or enterprise. Like facebook, only better.

(Actually, we have an Environment Show facebook group for the diehard facebook fans, but we think our official site (on ning) may be better. Check them out and decide for yourself.)

And at the Environment Show, we’re interested in visuals as as well as audio. You’re welcome to join our community site and post photos directly to it or join the Flickr site for The Environment Show Community. Show off the pristine, natural places you’ve been to. And any shots to do with environmental issues or innovations.

Catch you on the airwaves. The first shows cover peak oil, planning cities for people and permaculture. And we’ve lined up a weekly check-in with Ben Cubby, environment reporter for the Sydney Morning Herald. Hope you can join us. Cheers, Phil.

About Phil Stubbs

Phil Stubbs.

Phil Stubbs is an environmental journalist, producer, blogger and podcaster. He is a regular contributor to Radio 2SER. (Sydney Educational Radio which broadcasts out of the University of Technology Sydney.)

Phil lives near the ocean in Sydney. His work keeps him in the city, but he’s really most at home when he’s off ‘into the wild’.

Phil has over 15 years experience in the media. He has worked as a journalist, corporate communication strategist, writer, producer, ad exec and media lecturer at university. In his spare time he’s been a DJ, film & music reviewer, surf instructor and outdoor guide. And he’s done a stint as marketing manager for the outdoor education organisation Outward Bound Australia.

Phil has had a long interest in the environment. He’s chuffed it’s getting more attention in the media, but believes there’s plenty more to do to make it more accessible.

Phil is keen to help people re-connect with the real world: nature. He believes we all share that bond at a very basic level – and the more we realise it, the less likely we’ll be to trash the joint.

And he believes many of the answers to our current environmental challenges are just common sense and are already there for us. His goal is to unearth them and present them in ways which are easy for people to understand and connect with, so they become mainstream rather than fringe ideas.

The Environment Show is Phil’s vehicle.

Keep watching this space. There’s heaps more to come. Including podcasts and a radical upgrade of the site in 2008. We’re just starting out and your feedback is very welcome.

Special thanks to the Stubbs family: my brother Matt for his IT genius and support, my sister Jen for believing in me, my 3 year old Archie for his brilliant lateral thinking and humour, my father John for introducing me to the ocean (which I love so much) and for helping when I needed it, and my mother Joan for showing me the beauty of nature and the importance of making the most of every day on this earth. We miss you mum. You would have liked this show. (Though my grammar would have got a shallacking.)

The Environment Show Blogs On

Welcome to The Environment Show, my New Year’s resolution for 2008.

TES is a weekly program for radio, the web and podcast.

We’ll do our best to avoid preaching to you about the environment and getting bogged down in the minutae (as the media can often do.) Our aim is to make the environment interesting and accessible, as it should be.

The Show features important current environment issues, interviews with leading campaigners and experts, best practice and solutions to our big environmental challenges, how you can find work in the environment, the best of what the environment can offer in terms of pristine places, reviews of environment films and books, ‘gentle music for gentle people’ and a what’s-on guide to events.

And we’re going to make it interesting by using multi-media: video, audio, photos, weblinks and no-nonsense text from our writers.

Please let us know of any other good material on the blog topics or other environmental issues – especially in these different media formats. We also plan to take video, audio, photo and text submissions from our audience in the future. (Just needs to fit the TES mantra.)

In the meantime, we welcome your feedback and ideas via our blog.

Stay tuned. There’s loads more to come. Cheers,
Phil.
