Land grabs, Geoengineering and Climate Change: Vandana Shiva vs. Gwynne Dyer

By Democracy Now!

Ed. Note: I love this woman; Vandana Shiva is one of the most brilliant activists fighting for the best solutions to many of our problems today. Originally a theoretical physicist, she now campaigns the world for heirloom seeds, organic farming and local food systems instead of the chemical- and oil-intensive large scale industrial farms that destroy the environment, increase global warming and wreck local economies.  She also supports Hands off Mother Earth, a citizen-based organization that resists geoengineering. ~ RA

Supporters of geoengineering have proposed radical ways to alter the planet to decrease the level of greenhouse gas emissions. Proposals include creating artificial volcanoes to pollute the atmosphere with sulfur particles, fertilizing the oceans and placing sun-deflecting aluminum foil in the sky. But opposition is growing to geoengineering. We host a debate between Indian environmentalist, scientist, philosopher and eco-feminist, Vandana Shiva, and geopolitical analyst and columnist, Gwynne Dyer.
