with Ania and Shamini
7:15am Shamini replayed an interview with Dr. Kerryn Higgs, author of 'Collision Course: Endless Growth on a Finite Planet'. Dr. Higgs discusses the very short history of the concept of limitless growth currently fueling our economies and our lives, and poses some answers as to how we might go about stabilising our growth and investing in our future. 'Collision Course' is out now and available in all good bookstores.
7:30am Shamini spoke to Craig Moss, WA resident and inventor of the Eco Shark Barrier, an environmentally friendly alternative to shark nets and baited drum lines, which doesn't harm marine life.
7:45am Ania spoke with Jill Redwood from Environment East Gippsland about what's been happening in the forests of East Gippsland, including an update on Vic Forests' application for Forestry Stewardship Certification and the problems with FSC.
8:05am Sam Quinlan gave a quick shout out for Walking for Freedom, a walk in Canberra to raise awareness around the issue of refugees with negative ASIO assessments.
8:15am Ania interviewed Spencer Zifcak, the Immediate Past President of Liberty Victoria, about how the debate regarding freedom of expression after the horrible Charlie Hebdo attacks has made its way to Australia, with a re-ignition of the debate around the Racial Discrimination Act's section 18C.
