"Regeneration: Ending the Climate Crisis in One Generation"

bookcover.jpg
Aired on Thursday, September 30th.

Our guest is one of the environmental movement's leading voices, and a pioneering architect of corporate reform with respect to ecological practices and philosophies. Paul Hawken is an entrepreneur, author, and activist who has dedicated his life to environmental sustainability and changing the relationship between business and the environment. His new book, which he tells us about, is "Regeneration: Ending the Climate Crisis in One Generation." It's a work that, per the San Francisco Chronicle, "covers an impressively broad range of topics from food safety to the war industry, electric vehicles to mangroves, which serves to demonstrate how all-encompassing the challenge is.... Those of us who feel the weight of the crisis will find the book both clarifying and helpful, as is [Hawken's] final exhortation: 'It's not your job to save the planet.' Rather, it is all of our jobs."

Rich Fisher passed through KWGS about thirty years ago, and just never left. Today, he is the general manager of Public Radio Tulsa, and the host of KWGS’s public affairs program, StudioTulsa, which celebrated its twentieth anniversary in August 2012 . As host of StudioTulsa, Rich has conducted roughly four thousand long-form interviews with local, national, and international figures in the arts, humanities, sciences, and government. Very few interviews have gone smoothly. Despite this, he has been honored for his work by several organizations including the Governor's Arts Award for Media by the State Arts Council, a Harwelden Award from the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa, and was named one of the “99 Great Things About Oklahoma” in 2000 by Oklahoma Today magazine.
