Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
What exactly are think tanks supposed to be thinking about? Are some of them part of a campaign to cast doubt on science when it could interfere with profits? Author Kerryn Higgs recounted the growth-seeking activities of the corporate world in her book, Collision Course: Endless Growth on a Finite Planet. Her research reveals think tanks, industry associations, and even university economics departments all play a role in advancing and preserving our societys commitment to growth above all else, even if it means ignoring science.

This is part two of a 2017 interview. Kerryn Higgs taught history at Melbourne University and environmental studies at the University of New South Wales. Shes a University Associate at the University of Tasmania, where she received her PhD in Geography and Environmental Studies.
