Tribute to Dennis Weaver

Until the end of August we are
recycling the Best of EcoTalk while our team regroups for some exciting changes coming up in September. Stay tuned!
This is a rerun of our March 11 show.
When actor and former Gunsmoke star Dennis Weaver passed away last month few obituaries mentioned his environmental work. In the latter part of his life Weaver worked passionately for the planet. In addition to founding The Institute of Ecolonomics (merging of ecological and economic concerns), he drove a state-of-the- art hybrid car across the country and built a home made from recycled rubber and aluminum. His close friend, Peter La Vaute, who now runs the institute, will join us to talk about Dennis’ environmental legacy. LISTEN (11 min)
