Paul Watson - whale warrior
Paul Watson is the founder and face of Sea Shepherd - the marine conservation organisation. He's also well known for his interventionist approach to protecting whales and other marine creatures.Watson has spent 50 years as an environmental activist. Some of the details of his exploits we've included in our profile of Paul Watson - www.environmentshow.com/paul-watson. Phil Stubbs recently interviewed Paul Watson to ask about life for him now, what he’s learned about activism, and the challenges for the natural world from human activity.Phil had interviewed Watson ten years ago in the midst of the ‘Whale Wars’ taking place between the Japanese whaling fleet and Sea Shepherd in the Southern Ocean (with Watson on a satellite phone from his ship in the Antarctic.) Listen to Phil's original interview. One result of those clashes is the Japanese are no longer conducting whale hunts in Antarctic Waters. But Paul Watson is also now contending with legal restrictions slapped on him by the Japanese to prevent him from travelling and going to sea against them.Watson doesn't mince his words. In this post, you'll find a collection of Paul Watson's best quotes - www.environmentshow.com/paul-watson-quotes.

Bill McKibben - lion of the climate movement
Bill McKibben has been a key figure in the climate movement for over 30 years. In 1989 he wrote a book called 'The End of Nature' - which was the first to take the science of global warming and explain it to a general audience. Since then he's written many more books and articles on climate change. He founded 350.org to campaign globally for climate action. And he’s played a major role in kickstarting the divestment movement - which has put pressure on the funding of fossil fuel projects.McKibben has labelled the fossil fuel industry as ‘Public Enemy Number One’ when it comes to the survival of humans on this planet.In this interview, we ask about the fossil fuel industry's future plans, the changes we need to make to adapt to climate change, and what the world's wake-up call is going to be for us to finally and properly act. This interview was recorded when Bill was in Australia in 2019 - as part of 350.org's campaign to stop the Adani coal mine in Queensland.
