Keith Brooks Environmental Defence

This summer, saw climate change creep back into the headlines, stealing attention away from COVID-19.  And for good reason. This year saw a record-breaking heatwave sweep the west coast, resulting in a town burning to the ground. Climate change is killing people.

And yet, it seems barely been a point of debate in this election. In keeping with our effort to focus on the issues that are important to the 905 we invited Keith Brooks from Environmental Defence to the podcast.  Keith is Programs Director at Environmental Defence where he seeks to advocate for a cleaner environment and a greener economy.  He has a Master’s in environmental studies and has written many times on the need for a more sustainable economy.
