Download Hour1 Download Hour2 This week we look at the conflict between public safety and the corporate bottom line. How, if a company is maximising its expected profit can it be expected also to take a magnanimous interest in public safety? How can those companies which take a care of public safety be expected to compete in the market place with those that don't?
In our first hour, we'll look at global warming with journalist Ross Gelbspan, and then hear from British scientist Mark Purdy, whose research indicates that mad cow disease is related to environmental toxicity. Then, we'll look at the contamination of milk and other animal products by genetically engineered hormones, and the fight to stop the plantings of genetically modified crops in New York. We'll conclude with a talk on environmental justice, and the politics of pollution by Robert Bullard, Professor of Sociology and Environmental Justice at Clark Atlanta University.
