Debunking climate change myths with John Gibbons

The Mario Rosenstock Podcast

I love a good conspiracy theory. But even more, I love to hear them stripped down, analysed, and debunked. On this episode of the Mario Rosenstock Podcast, Ireland’s best known environmental journalist and campaigner, John Gibbons, joins me to look at some of the most prevalent and popular ‘myths’ about climate change, and prove them wrong. John is very passionate about this subject and he’s not afraid to tell it like it is and ruffle a few feathers here and there, and he does so in very plain, accessible English - which isn’t always the case when it comes to the topic of climate change. Have a listen and if you don’t agree with something or would like to have your say on the topic, drop me a line to mariorosenstock@gmail.com COMEDY: The ‘hot’ topic of the week has been spiralling energy costs and how we’re going to go about reducing our consumption of energy.

JOHN GIBBONS on joining Twitter, the Toronto Blue Jays & some baseball talk.

The Bob McCown Podcast

Bob and John welcome John Gibbons back to the podcast for another baseball focused edition of the podcast. You never know where the conversation is going to go when you have Gibby on and today is no different. With his recent emergence on Twitter, Bob and John get to the bottom of why the former Blue Jays Manager joined the app and find out how he has been enjoying the interactions with his followers. With little to no direction, the three bounce from topic to topic covering a wide range of baseball related topics as Gibby gives his opinion on how teams are managed today compared to when he was coaching.  Building from a question Bob heard on another program, we compare John's 2015 Jays team and get his opinion on which player from that roster would make the biggest impact on todays team before ending the show with some general MLB chatter and lots of laughs.
