How do we define economic justice? Does the answer coincide with the way our food is produced and consumed? And does the potential for global warming threaten any delicate balance we achieve?
These weighty questions will be considered tonight in Burlington by author and environmentalist Bill McKibben, who’s been invited to speak by the Peace and Justice and Intervale Centers.
McKibben has written a new book called Deep Economy the Wealth of Communities and the Durable Future , a future McKibben says faces a threat from the American thirst for more. He spoke with VPR’s Mitch Wertlieb about his talk tonight.
