For folks interested in environmental issues, Suzuki's radio show "The Bottom Line" is accessible through website, Facebook and Twitter:

http://www.cbc.ca/thebottomline/

See the website to follow on Facebook and Twitter.

Also for reference see the USA Today article in the EPO Press Archive:
Page loves Japanese novelist Haruki Murakami and recently finished David Suzuki's environmental tome The Big Picture, an "incredible" book that "breaks down everything that's going on with the environment right now."

Yes you're right: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Severn_Cullis-Suzuki
I have seen this video before and didn't realize they were daughter and father until you pointed it out - thanks. :agreeing:

The episode with Ellen will air September 5 on CBC Radio One.
Episode 10: Biophilia and Happiness
E.O. Wilson coined the term 'biophilia' to describe our inbuilt need to "affiliate" with other species. David Suzuki meets with actor Ellen Page to talk about how nature grounds us amidst the chaos. He also talks to a psychologist about how nature can help calm everything from attention deficit disorder to conflicts with neighbours. Airs September 5.

Update from Facebook:http://fb.me/EWeZg2yZ
CBC Radio: The Bottom Line
The very last episode is set to air this weekend. It explores the concept of Biophilia -- that we are instinctually drawn to connect with nature. David also chats with actor Ellen Page in a Halifax park about how to balance modern demands with environmental action. Sad that it's the last episode. But it's a good one to end on.

That's a really great topic to discuss. The sad truth of the matter is that the human population has grown so massive and therefore incredibly needy that balancing environmental consciousness and the needs of our species is very difficult. Huge food corporations who genetically alter vegetables and fruits are causing damage to Earth, but with the population so big it's hard to just resort to locally farmed food, that doesn't supply industrial cities and is often simply too expensive. All people can do their own things to help out, but what really needs to change is some of the corporations. Yes perhaps they are just supplying what is needed, but they need to figure out safer ways to do this.

I never thought I would enjoy listening to Ellen talk about urine again and again and again.
In the country dead bodies live in swamps and ditches and shallow graves. A man dumps the body of a girl in a ditch. The body rotts melts into slime. Flowers pop up where the body lies, seeds fly out of the flowers and a bee sucks the flowers and makes honey. Then the family of the girl buys the honey from the store. And the family eats the girl.

And to be fair to Ellen, she only mentions that once as part of a long list of activities she took part in to study permaculture and eco-village design. There is some interesting background from Ellen's past in this interview in terms of the events which have stimulated her passion in environmentalism.

I know, and the interviewer always brings it up in every interview. I guess normal people wouldn't notice it because they don't watch EVERY interview she ever does. :purpleconfused:

That interview was a great listen. It's interesting that she talks about how
► Show Spoiler
was one of the things that sparked her interest in environmentalism. I loved reading that book 3 years ago. That's one more thing I have in common with Ellen :totalhappy:
