This is a one hour audio….. and I can’t recommend listening in enough!
David Suzuki and Jeff Rubin

David Suzuki and Jeff Rubin


Economist Jeff Rubin and environmentalist David Suzuki might seem an unlikely pairing. But they’ve been touring Canada together, talking about the natural limits to growth from their very different perspectives. We listen in as they try to convince a Calgary audience that we’ve already exceeded the capacity of the planet.

Jeff Rubin is a former Chief Economist and Chief Strategist at CIBC World Markets.  His book, The End of Growth is a follow-up to his earlier book Why Your World Is About To Get A Whole Lot Smaller.

David Suzuki is a geneticist, environmentalist, broadcaster and the co-founder and chair of the David Suzuki Foundation. He has written over 50 books, including The Legacy: An Elder’s Vision for Our Sustainable Future.

This event was staged as part of Calgary’s WordFest
