    Bush Fires and Disaster Capitalism in Australia

    Bush Fires and Disaster Capitalism in Australia

    This episode of the Green Flame is an interview with Kim Hill, a permaculture design teacher based on the South East coast of New South Wales, and Joanna Pinkiewicz, a women's rights activist and environmental activist, based in Tasmania.

    We discuss the Australian bush fires, the role of fire in the landscape, indigenous land management practices, land defense, grief rituals and nature connection, and the likelihood that corporations and developers with backing from the government will open up fire-affected land to development and mining.

    Two of DENNI's songs are included with permission: Trees and Wise Ones.

    Derrick Jensen on Immigration and the Morality of Industrial Collapse

    In this excerpt from episode 7, "Strategy for a Burning World," the author and philosopher Derrick Jensen urges listeners to join in the struggle for the planet and for justice.

    "It is a terrible time to be alive in terms of having to watch the destruction of the planet," he says, "but it is also a wonderful time to be alive because we have opportunities to stop this destruction that were not available to those [fighting back] 200 years ago."
