The Power to Change with Margaret Atwood and Richard Black

This podcast episode is all about energy and features an extract from our longer interview with the celebrated writer and activist Margaret Atwood While Extinction Rebellion and Just Stop Oil are holding up tankers and stopping oil refineries, the government is sitting on the energy policy it promised after the Ukraine invasion. With rising poverty, rising fuel prices, and rising fears about the future, the question of how quickly and effectively we can transition to clean energy has become urgent.  We begin with Oil Music, a short pointed poem by Gboyega A Odubanjo and then hear Margaret Atwood in London last week connecting the dots between the Ukraine and the fossil fuel crisis and expressing her worries about the future. The main interview is with energy expert and former BBC environment correspondent Richard Black. Richard is no stranger to the podcast and  wore a slightly different hat for our recent very well received episode about climate denial. This episode is co-presented by Nuala Lam a veteran of the Media and Messaging team who discusses the strategy behind the planning of this April’s rebellion, the form the rebellion will take and the Writers Festival which will take place on the 15th April. In a wide ranging interview that is a centre of the programme Richard Black discusses fracking, how the energy crisis is partly a result of the COVID shut downs and how Putin used that crisis. He then goes on to discuss  blue and green carbon, his recent viral  tweet about how UK gas exports are at a record high this year.Finally we end with a a reminder of UN secretary generals speech after launching the most renent IPCC report in February in which he brands political inaction as ‘criminal’.  CREDITSProducer and co-presenter Jessica TownsendMargaret Atwood interview by Toby Litt, Tobias Withers, and Kelly HillInterview edit by David McKeeverCo-presenter resenter Nuala LamSound editor in chief Tim RabjohnsExtra sound editing by Stuart J Wilson aka bigfixSocial Media from Bloody Vegans Productions

Episode 23: Parables of Nutmegs and Genocide

In this podcast we're glad to feature the eminent writer Amitav Ghosh who is an influential Indian environmental thinker who has won many honours for his fiction. He's also an academic and author of several substantial works of non-fiction, including The Great Derangement, an exploration of literature’s failure to address the climate and ecological emergency. His new work, The Nutmeg’s Curse: Parables for a Planet in Crisis, is the subject of this interview.  What is striking about Amitav’s work is that he is just as at home with the big picture of an unstable Earth, as he is talking about the personal agonies brought on by Covid, or the beautiful constellations found within a nutmeg and the myths it has inspired. He gives fresh and humane insights into the world today and writes with wisdom and compassion about the core issues of colonialism, racism and systemic genocide that are fundamental to the crisis we’re now in. Perhaps a career of crafting ten novels has put him in a good position to try to see everyone’s point of view, even the bad guys.  In person, Amitav Ghosh speaks modestly. In our times of swagger, shouting and bravado, it would be easy to underestimate that voice. But listen, and you’ll encounter a fierce intelligence, fed by insight and research. And in this interview, he speaks briefly of his grief in the face of what he sees as inevitable societal collapse. Producer and presenter: Jessica TownsendProducer and sound editor: Aidan Lewis Knox

Episode 22: Episode 22: Lies Lies Lies. The rise of climate contrarianism with Richard Black

Did you catch the BBC drama The Trick? If not, it is still on BBC iPlayer (apologies for non-UK friends). It shows the birth of the arch denialist group the Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF) in 2009 from the point of view of a scientist who was unlucky enough to get enmeshed in their campaign to discredit the science of global warming. It’s a great watch with elements of thriller, drama and even love story. Today it’s clear the GWPF is still very active in the run up to COP26 in its attempts to make sure the UK Net Zero plans come to nothing and to ensure the international talks are a failure, putting all our lives at risk. The group never declare their funders but it’s clear they are acting covertly on behalf of big oil and other vested interests.  Their focus now is on delaying domestic and international transformation to meet net zero targets. And their tactics are no longer denial of the science. In this podcast, the first for many months, presenter Jessica Townsend and Tom Hardy from the Media Tell The Truth group look at the launch of the GWPF back in 2009 and find that their tactics were there from the beginning: bending the truth, using connections in right wing media, and raising doubts on every aspect of moving forward with the race to decarbonise. We talk to Richard Black a long-time BBC environment correspondent, and the author of Denied: The Rise and Fall of Climate Contrarianism.  Show credits: Producer and presenter: Jessica TownsendEditor and presenter: Tom Hardy

Episode 21: Episode 21 - It’s Not Illegal To Care: The Police Crime Sentencing and Courts Bill

The episode begins with the stirring words of XR’s Clare Farrell and Marvina Newton from ‘United for black Lives’ speaking against the Police Crime Sentencing and Courts bill in parliament Square on April 3rd at a Kill the Bill coalition event. This podcast looks at the oppressive new legislation that Priti Patel is trying to foist upon us, and at what it means in both practical terms for those organising protests but also in the wider sense of democracy. We explore this with the Lib Dem peer and environmental spokesperson Lord Jonny Oates. Of course, XR is fervently non political in a party sense but Lord Oates has also signed up to the CEE bill which aims to make XR’s three demands into British law so he is an ally. The bill does many things besides attack our right to protest – it also takes away the rights of traveller communities and includes provisions on trespass, and extends the penalties for many offences but since the government admits that the protest legislation has been geared to limiting the powers of both Black Lives Matter movement and Extinction Rebellion, the podcast focusses on that issue. Finally we widen the frame with an interview with a tremendous writer and XR activist Jay Giffiths author of Wild and Why Rebel? and ask about whether these political moves can be associated with fascism. How are they related to the Libertarianism incubated in Trump’s America and what parallels can we find from earlier times in history? Please share and subscribe to the podcast. Why not share with your XR curious friends? We urgently need to grow the movement and exert pressure to make this year an historic one for climate. PS: a group of podcasters are campaigning for a climate category so that people could find green podcasts and would mean we’d get listeners but you could also find other material worth listing to. The campaign targets apple because they set the industry standard. The deadline is Earth Day 22nd April.

Transforming the Global Financial System, with Ann Pettifor - Best of Rebel Radio (1)

Welcome to a new XR Podcast series: The Best of Rebel Radio. Here we take some of the wonderful content coming out of Rebel Radio and edit it into a podcast so you can listen again whenever you like. For our first Best of Rebel Radio Podcast, hosts Sue Wheat and Seb O'Connell speak to Ann Pettifor about the global financial system and how international and historical decision making have prioritised the rich and corporations over people and planet. As a result, climate change and ecological breakdown are intrinsically connected to our economic and financial systems. These systems need to be changed if we stand any chance of preventing climate and ecological catastrophe. Sue and Seb also speak to Hilary Powell and Dan Edelstyn about the social injustice of our monetary system and how they are trying to raise awareness and create change through their community project The Bank Job, which Ann Pettifor herself has visited. Ann Pettifor is a political economist and author whose latest book The Case for the Green New Deal, is a plan to re-imagine the economy to protect life on earth. She is currently a director of Policy Research in Macroeconomics (PRIME). Ann is also well-known for predicting the global financial crisis of 07-08 and spearheading the historic Jubilee 2000 campaign.Artist Hilary Powell and filmmaker/musician Dan Edelstyn are creators of the Optimistic Foundation. Their latest film, 'The Bank Job', is a community driven feature, participatory bank and playful act of economic education and change. Through radical imagination, they seek to open up possibilities for more just ways of organising and living when everyday life and democracy are corroded. Correction: at the end of the podcast, we refer to next episode's guest as Helena Norberg. Her name is Helena Norberg-Hodge, and we apologise for the error.Presenter – Sue Wheat and Seb O’ConnellProducers – Marijn van de Geer and Michaela HerrmannSocial Media Producer – Kary StewartSound Engineer & Mixing – Michaela Herrmann

Amitav Ghosh: The Great Derangement - Rebel Book Club (1)

This is the first of a brand new series by the Extinction Rebellion Podcast, with Writers Rebel, looking at iconic green books that shape our understanding of the new world we find ourselves in: after climate change, the sixth mass extinction, and the Ecological Crisis.We are thrilled to begin with "The Great Derangement", which questions the cultural silence around the Climate & Ecological Emergency but also looks at issues of colonialism, and its modern day influence, on the Climate Crisis and beyond.

XR & the Police – Extinction Rebellion Podcast Special 2.7

Extinction Rebellion have always had a controversial relationship with the police. During the April Rebellion, there were chants of "we love you" and a practice of liaising with the police before actions. During the October rebellion, this relationship became much more conflictual.This episode tracks those changes and is a prelude to a more in depth podcast, coming this winter. Speakers include Sian Berry (Co-Leader of the Green Party), George Monbiot (The Guardian Columnist), Rupert Read (Extinction Rebellion Spokesperson), XR lawyers, and XR disabled rebels. Extinction Rebellion has three demands. 1) Tell the Truth - Government must tell the truth by declaring a climate and ecological emergency, working with other institutions to communicate the urgency for change. 2) Act Now - Government must act now to halt biodiversity loss and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2025. 3) Beyond Politics - Government must create and be led by the decision of a Citizens' Assembly on climate and ecological justice.

BBC Tell the Truth - Extinction Rebellion Podcast Special 2.4

Extinction Rebellion’s (XR) first demand is that the government and media ‘tell the truth’ about the climate and ecological emergency.

Episode 2 - A Nonviolent Rebellion

WARNING - This episode contains some strong language.This second episode of the Extinction Rebellion Podcast looks at one of the Rebellion's core values and strategies: nonviolence. The theme is explored from a few different angles and its significance to Extinction Rebellion is explained. This episode is presented by Dave Anderson and Jessica Townsend with interviews conducted by Marijn van de Geer and Jessica Townsend in the Extinction Rebellion offices.We interviewed the following people to help explain what nonviolence means:Roger Hallam - PhD researcher on effective radical campaign design at King's College London, organic farmer and co-founder of Extinction Rebellion.Clare Farrell - Street artist and fashion designer, Arts Coordinator and co-founder of Extinction Rebellion.Skeena Rathor - Labour councillor for Central Stroud and active member of political and strategic working groups for Extinction Rebellion.Roger starts off the episode by talking us through the political effectiveness of nonviolent direct action, its precedents and the scholarship around it.If you are interested in hearing more from Roger on this subject, this film will be of interest:https://youtu.be/jSOlRNCO9L8He references the work of Gene Sharp in particular (Gene Sharp: 'From Dictatorship to Democracy', 1993) which was influential in the Arab Spring, Iranian protests and Serbia.The work of American political scientist Erica Chenoweth is referenced a few times in this episode by both Roger and Clare. As an introduction to her work there is an interesting TED talk here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YJSehRlU34w and we also recommend reading 'Why Civil Resistance WorksThe Strategic Logic of Nonviolent Conflict' by Erica Chenoweth and Maria J. Stephanher (2012).We are hoping to have a special episode in which we interview Erica Chenoweth in greater depth about her work later in the year.Clare discusses the way the art working group of XR ensures that our actions have many explicit and subliminal nonviolent messages. She goes on to consider if the nonviolent ethos of the movement makes it attractive to faith groups. Finally Skeena Rathor looks at the nonviolent culture of XR in its day-to-day running.During every evening of the Rebellion starting on 15 April 2019 there will be Zoom meetings with Gayano Shaw offering emotional support for rebels in addition to the support from XR's own Regenerative Culture Team's support.Research - Jessica Townsend, Marijn van de GeerPresenters - Jessica Townsend, Dave AndersonProducer - Elly LazaridesSound Engineer & Mixing - Dave Stitch
