Jason Bradford is a biologist, farmer, and the Board President of the Post Carbon Institute, an organization that provides individuals and communities with the resources needed to understand and respond to the interrelated ecological, economic, energy, and equity crises of the 21st century.
He notably authored The Future is Rural: Food system adaptations to the great simplification, which presents the case for reversing the trend of urbanization and towards re-ruralization.
In this podcast episode, Jason sheds light on the unsustainable systems that underlie and run our cities and why our perception that cites are more efficient and therefore, better for the environment, has been shortsighted; how we can re-ruralize without worsening urban sprawl or wild habitat loss; and more.
