The EcoCentric – June 23, 2015

It was a big week for environmental news. Locally the biggest story was Jumbo and the provincial environment minister’s decision to put a stop to deverlopment of the ski and real estate project in the Purcell mountains. Our Nelson Creston MLA Michelle Mungall came on to talk about that decision and about the burning question: is that it for Jumbo? Have we finally won?
Globally the story was the Pope’s Encyclical on Climate Change. Will it change everything? In a few minutes we’ll speak with Castlegar United Church minister Greg Powell about the encyclical and about the response of the churches to the climate crisis.
We visit the garden of Bonne Baker to hear what excites her about gardening.
Host Keith Wiley has his usual Environment News and more on The EcoCentric.
