On our show for April 24th, host Brent Ragsdale will speak with his guest, Richard Heinberg, Senior Fellow at Post Carbon Institute and the author of 14 books, including POWER: LIMITS AND PROSPECTS FOR HUMAN SURVIVAL, along with hundreds of essays and articles, some of which have appeared in NATURE, WALL STREET JOURNAL and THE AMERICAN PROSPECT. He has lectured on 6 continents and has appeared in numerous environmental documentary films. Brent and Richard Heinberg will provide our listeners with a follow up on the event – Redesigning Our Communities for Life After Fossil Fuels, for which he was the keynote speaker.

On November 7, 2022, EcoRadio KC promoted Redesigning our Communities for Life After Fossil Fuels, a series of virtual and in-person community events is occurring in 6 locations in the U.S. and Canada.  Kansas City hosted the second event on Saturday, November 12th on Zoom.

Brent and Richard will provide follow up on the event.  It’s time to scale way back, redesign how we’re living and roll up our sleeves to restore our ecosystems, soil, biodiversity and connections with our neighbors. As we learn and take action on how to live within the Earth’s limits, it’s vital that we co-invent and redesign our new lifestyles with every member of our community, especially our underserved community members.

Too often, communities of color and low-income communities have been left out of the conversation, the plans, and the funding, even while being the most seriously impacted by the climate and other crises. Let’s move forward by coming together, learning from one another, and supporting each other as we strengthen our resilience and face the challenges ahead.

We at EcoRadio KC are glad to encourage awareness and protection of our world.  Our goal is to assure our listeners are aware of how we can create a sustainable present for a sustainable future!

This will be a great radio hour!
