We are now living in the Age of Water. Water is the new “gold”, with individuals, corporations and countries positioning themselves around this precious resource. Water is changing everything. The Age of Water Podcast covers anything of interest from breaking environmental news to evergreen material. This also includes human interest stories, readings of eco-literature, discussion of film and other media productions of interest.

In this episode, we join author and climate change action advocate Martin Bush in Toronto, where he talks about his latest book “Climate Change and Renewable Energy” and some realistic steps people can take to help make a difference.

Age of Water Interview with Martin Bush

Martin Bush is an author and advocate for climate change action. He has over 30 years of senior project management experience around the world in the fields of renewable energy, natural resource management, disaster preparedness, and climate change adaptation and mitigation.

Martin Bush’s recent book is “Climate Change and Renewable Energy: How to End the Climate Crisis” published by Pelgrave Macmillan.

The book presents a comprehensive overview of the global climate change impacts caused by the continued use of fossil fuels, which results in enormous damage to the global environment, biodiversity, and human health. The book argues that the key to a transition to a low carbon future is the rapid and large-scale deployment of renewable energy technologies in power generation, transport and industry, coupled with super energy-efficient building design and construction. the author also reveals how major oil companies and petrochemical conglomerates have systematically attempted to manufacture doubt and uncertainty about global warming and climate change, continue to block the commercialization of solar energy and wind power, and impede the electrification of the transport sector.

Martin Bush’s solution is a theory-of-change approach to substantially reduce greenhouse-gas emissions by 2050, which sets out realistic steps that people can take now to help make a difference.
