52 - Climate Crisis with Lynn Boylan

Play
Read more

In show fifty-two, Tara finds out that former MEP Lynn Boylan knows absolutely loads about the climate crisis. She has a scientific background in ecology, in a very hands-on way that, Tara learns, sadly doesn’t involve pic-a-nic baskets. They talk about how communities have evolved and what they could change right now to be kinder to the climate, and to communities themselves. Were things really better in the 80s? What if you can’t afford a bamboo toothbrush, are they doing anything anyway? They chat about saving the snail, rural transport options, whether there’s hope among the climate anxiety and Tara puts forward her ideas for an anti-gravity movement. Thank goodness we have people like Lynn around to set her straight.

Lynn Boylan #MediaPlurality Ep.161

Denis O'Brien selling his share in Independent News and Media has reignited the debate about media plurality in Ireland. Opinions vary over issues like editorial control, self-censorship and, as we know only too well ourselves, the difficulty in making it financially viable.

So we were delighted to be joined in The Tortoise Shack by Sinn Féin's Lynn Boylan, who had worked at the previous European Parliament's Employment Committee on diversity in media and media reform.

Lynn talks to us about the work of the Committee and how she has seen first hand the climate (in)action by our government from within the EU.

This (original) pod was recorded shortly before the European elections and Lynn speaks presciently about the apathy on the doors and has kindly also added an update on her learnings and the learnings for The Broad Left after the results.

Prof. Aviva Chomsky and Lynn Boylan #Greenwashing.
In 2018, the Oireachtas environment committee rejected calls to summon the ESB to appear before it over its importation of millions of tons of coal from a Colombian mine linked to human rights and environmental abuses. Joining us in the tortoise shack to discuss this is academic, author, activist and Professor of Latin American Studies, Aviva Chomsky and Sinn Féin MEP for Dublin, Lynn Boylan.

The Professor and Lynn help us join the dots from the documented abuses linked to the mine, including intimidation, assault and death threats against activists, to the electricity that probably charged the device that your listening to this on.

Up to 90% of the coal used at Irish Power-plant, Moneypoint, comes from the Cerrejon mine in the northeast of Colombia, which is one of the largest opencast mines in the world. The ESB is ‘greenwashing’ its involvement with a code of practice, whilst complicated taxation structures funneled through Ireland make us ultimately complicit in the ongoing human rights abuses.

We are indebted to MEP Boylan for the opportunity to speak with her and Professor Chomsky. This is about Climate Change and getting the whole picture.
