In interviews, radio show, reviews on October 11, 2012 at 8:54 am

“My message to environmentalists is: triple-digit oil prices, and the market process that results in those prices, is our friend, not our enemy.”

-Jeff Rubin

The End of Growth

This week’s show features an interview by Jan Andrea Hall (of Royal City Rag) with Jeff Rubin, former chief economist of CIBC, “regarded as one of the world’s most sought-after energy experts.” Rubin will be appearing in Guelph in The End of Growth tour, head-to-head with ecologist David Suzuki, next Tuesday (October 16th), 7pm at the Lakeside Hope House (formerly Norfolk United Church).

Dan read some special ones. Check ’em out:
