Philip Cafaro: LIFE ON THE BRINK

Thursday, April 18, 2013 - 3:00pm

Tonight on Inquiry we talk with PHILIP CAFARO, Professor of Philosophy at Colorado State University and co-editor of the collection of essays LIFE ON THE BRINK: ENVIRONMENTALISTS CONFRONT OVERPOPULATION. Why have environmentalists stopped talking about the critical problem of overpopulation? The authors in this book feel that the global population explosion coupled with the expectation of perpetual growth is the engine driving almost all environmental problems from extinctions to global climate change. But what can be done about it?

What Time Is It, Mr. Fox? w/Rockport High School Madrigal Choir

Presented by What Time Is It, Mr. Fox? and Poison Peach Productions.

What Time Is It, Mr. Fox? is making music that feels exposed and personal, but cinematic in scope. The Boston/NYC band blends baroque pop with soul noir, conjuring up something like the dark-tinged drama of Florence + The Machine, the roots of Aretha Franklin, and the songcraft of the Decemberists.

Miranda Russell

Rockport audiences have packed the house for the past two years to see the North shore's own Miranda Russell and her extraordinary five-piece band. A powerful and moving vocalist, Miranda's performance centers on nuanced treatments of a wide range of favorites from Joni Mitchell to Cole Porter. She "will knock your socks off - should you be wearing any this close to the beach." (The Boston Phoenix). Her dynamic interpretation and delivery of popular songs by such luminaries as Paul Simon, Gillian Welch, and Richard Thompson have become crowd-favorites in her pop repertoire.
