We started off today’s program with a short interview with Pat Murphy, author of several books and papers on Peak Oil, and other sustainable living topics. Pat is executive director of the Arthur Morgan Institute in Yellow Springs, Ohio. Our conversation focused on the Gulf Oil Spill from his perspective, and updates on his latest new books The Green Tragedy - Leed’s Lost Decade and “pinning our Wheels.
Next up we talked with representatives of the Florida Consumer Action Network, Tim Krumreich and Tom Heberlien. We talked about some of the issues they’re involved in: Nuclear power plants, the East-West Road in Hillsborough County, the upcoming one-cent sales tax initiative for transportation, and creation of green jobs in Florida. Tim’s also involved with a Sustainability group at The UU Church of Tampa.
