The Plastic Problem with Miriam Diamond

Description

What happens when the Canadian government tries to simultaneously decrease fossil fuel demand at the same time as giving subsidies to big oil producers? In this episode, we talk to Professor Miriam Diamond, a contaminant scientist and prolific advocate for climate change action. We discuss the carbon and plastic lock-in problem, and how divergent and contradictory policies have thrown a wrench in our plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
