Melinda Janki from Guyana on oil, money and nature

Episode #5

Melinda is a lawyer and environmental activist in Guyana, South America. The poor country wants to get very very rich – with oil. One of the largest oil discoveries in recent years was made off the coast of Guyana. Melinda says, we are rich already. We are a carbon sink, look at all the nature. So she is fighting with her government, with the World Bank and with one of the biggest oil companies in the world.

Melinda’s Utopia: the oil shall not be taken out. She sued her government.

We talk about money, frogs and what to do when everything seems to be going to the gutter.
