This week on the show Chris Chang-Yen Phillips talks to Green Party leader Elizabeth May about the Trans Pacific Partnership, a deal that could leave the environment a casualty of compromise for its member countries. Trevor Chow-Fraser and Natalee Rawat speak to Severn Cullis-Suzuki about her life today—22 years after she delivered her speech that silenced the world for five minutes at the Rio Earth Summit in 1992. And finally we’ll take you to Washington, D.C. with Trevor, who spoke to some faith-based organizations who are calling for what they call a Fast For The Climate.
