The Species Barrier #17 Podcast & Show Notes

Episode 17 of The Species Barrier... in the wake of our last episode which questioned the perceived wisdom surrounding "growth" we learn about ecological footprints and population. Professor William Rees, co-creator of the term "ecological footprint" and chairman of Population Matters, Roger Martin, stop by to share their expertise on these matters.

Also... Roger Yates reports from Ireland on the horse meat issue, we look back on Go Green Week and the GrowthBusters screening, Chris Packham skeptical regarding fox attacks, animal products filed with cigarettes on world cancer day, gambling on fish extinction, MRSA in milk, Nepalese wildlife under threat and is chicken flesh the next big meat scandal?
William Rees offers a hand on footprints
