Canadian Environmentalist is Ethics Prize Winner David Suzuki, interned with his first-generation Japanese-Canadian family during World War II though he didn't even speak Japanese, found solace in nature. Now, he worries nature is being held hostage. The noted environmentalist and Canadian TV host, winner of this year's Inamori Ethics Prize, says environmentalism has failed. We'll ask him to elaborate, and whether there's hope for a different approach, when he joins us for the hour on The Sound of Ideas, Thursday morning at 9 on 90.3
