Oil addiction threatens our environment, water and health. Clayton Thomas-Muller, aboriginal activist and tar sands campaigner with the Indigenous Environmental Network, speaks about Alberta's tar sands and its assaults on indigenous rights in the context of climate justice. So what is the cure for oil addiction? Daphne Wysham, a fellow and board member of the Institute for Policy Studies, founder and co-director of the Sustainable Energy and Economy Network, Washington, DC, argues that one of the proposed solutions - carbon offsets - is not a solution at all. Rob Hopkins, co-founder of Transition Town Totnes and of the Transition Network, Devon, U.K.
