Patriarch Versus Matriarchy as they relate to the Environment

program: 
Locus Focus
program date: 
Tue, 08/19/2008

 Host Marlene Howell substitutes for Barbara Bernstein today, bringing two main topics to the table.  

First up, she invites opinions on Patriarchy versus Matriarchy as it relates to the wholesale Commodification of the entire planet's resources versus Sustainability.  Is it even possible for our species (let alone most other species) to survive our greed?

Part two of today's show asks the listenership: "What are YOU going to do TODAY to express your environmental values?"  This is not meant as an esoteric question, but a practical one, inviting real behaviors that can be practiced today by average citizens to protect and preserve our lifeline.
