    Insulate

    31:47

    In England, climate protesters walked onto the M25 - the country’s busiest motorway - sat down and glued themselves to the asphalt. Traffic ground to a halt while the police unstuck them. Their demands: insulate all of Britain's public housing to stop more than 8,000 people from dying each year from the cold. The insulation would also help reduce climate pollution and create thousands of jobs. But, in a country known for their stiff upper lip, the public went bonkers over commute times getting longer. I meet up with Cameron Ford - to find out what the hell’s going on. Cameron was involved in many of the latest roadway demonstrations and he’s a carpenter working to insulate public housing.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

    Denny and Torm

    39:36

    We embark on an environmental justice tour of Richmond, CA with two Laotian community organizers.  Before Torm Nompraseurt managed to escape Laos, 13 members of his family had been killed, the U.S. had dropped 50 million tons of bombs on his country, defoliated the forests with agent orange, and he had been displaced 6 times. Torm moved to Richmond, CA to pursue the American Dream only to discover more than 350 toxic hotspots. Torm’s journey mirrors the creation of the Asian Pacific Environmental Network (APEN), where Denny Khamphanthong is the next generation of APEN organizer in Richmond. We visit with the Laotian community, see way too many toxic sites, talk about the struggles to afford to live in the community in which you were raised, understand the power of organizing everyday people and finish by seeing a soon to be opened youth climate resilience center called RYSE Commons!See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

    Castaway Mountain

    37:11

    Saumya Roy is a journalist and activist from Mumbai India who spent eight years writing:  Castaway Mountain: Love and Loss Among the Waste Pickers of Mumbai. The book is so beautifully written, weaving together stories of how we can create something out of nothing with an examination of what it means to be human. The story centers on a family that lives on the slopes of Deonar waste mountain, the largest pile of trash in India. What emerges from talking to Ms Roy are stories of a shared humanity and struggle for dignity that we must harness if we are to avoid the worst of a climate uncertain future.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

    Grantchester

    34:11

    I grew up in this English village just outside the university town of Cambridge. Grantchester is surrounded by flat farmland. Along the narrow river Camb which connects Cambridge to Grantchester are the Meadows which for 800 years have been home to herds of cows and crowds of revelers. Just like the rest of the world Grantchester has changed.  The village has had to withstand the loss of the school, the village shop and the Green Man pub. And yet, the glue that holds the community together still exists. The Parish Magazine, remaining pubs, orchard, barrel races, art classes, church and the networks of neighbors that banded together to help during the pandemic, show the evolution of community.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

    Shirley & Will

    37:37

    In the 1900’s, there were one million Black farmers in America and former slaves and their descendants had amassed 14 million acres of land. In the last 100 years, 90 percent of that land has been lost. Today only 45,000 of the nation’s 3.4 million farmers are Black. Jared Blumenfeld travels to the Central Valley to meet with Will Scott Jr who is the President of the African American Farmers of California, and with Shirley Rowe a lifelong teacher who now farms Alfalfa in Lemoore California. The work that Will and Shirley are doing is critical to help support the next generation of African American farmers and reminds us how deeply the roots of systemic racism are intertwined with agriculture. Reestablishing our connection to farmers of color through the food they produce is one critical way we can all help.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

    Captain Jo

    31:42

    Salty captain and environmental champion Jo Royle grew up sailing, raced boats between continents, skippered the Plastiki - a boat made from 12,500 plastic bottles and then founded the groundbreaking organization Common Seas to rid the oceans of plastic. The race to save the oceans and prevent big oil from investing $2.3 trillion into new plastic production is something we all need to work with Jo to accomplish. In doing so, we will also help battle climate change and reinforce our intimate connection with the ocean.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

    Fenton

    41:20

    Climate Communications Now!  If we are to have a chance of combating climate change it won’t be through publishing more reports or having yet another meeting - what we need is clear actionable mass communications that galvanizes the public and compels bold systemic climate action. If there is one person who can help us create an impactful national climate communications strategy, it’s David Fenton who has been called the Robin Hood of public relations. David explains that the truth doesn't sell itself, just like corporate America we need to be data-driven, we must stick with simple clear repeated messages, and we need to talk about both the opportunities of a clean economy and the real threats and dangers of a climate apocalypse.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.
