Over the course of the weekend, I had the pleasure of listening to David Suzuki speak on a couple of occations at the Sustainable Living Festival.
Firstly on Saturday when he was interviewed by the 3CR crew, where I listened to him speak about the environment and the issues we face,
and secondly when he gave an introduction for Clive Hamilton who spoke about why we are not acting quickly enough on climate change mitigation. In fact David was more engaging than Clive, who used too many big words for this little greenie. I got the gist of his presentation, but OMG it took all of my concentration to keep up with him. I think I would rather read Clive’s work than listen to him present. Sorry, but just being honest.
Anyway, both of David’s talks/introductions were interesting and engaging. I managed to record some of the radio interview on video and put it up on YouTube. His words of wisdom really lit a spark in me, brought a smile to my face that someone was actually speaking truthfully, and it is well worth the 14 minutes that it will take to watch it.
Please enjoy David Suzuki telling it how it is!
