In this episode of Planet Philadelphia: First up you’ll hear Michael Nairn, who teaches at the Urban Studies Program at the University of Pennsylvania, talk about how justice needs an equal place in discussions of a sustainable world. Then we’ll hear from Bernie Sanders delegate, Russell Greene, a climate activist who was instrumental in helping to write the Democratic Party platform to recognize that we are in a climate emergency, and that anything short of a World War II-like mobilization will bring catastrophic consequences to civilization.
