In this wide-ranging and hard-hitting interview, first aired in January 2022, pioneering American writer, activist, and Marxist environmentalist, Mike Davis speaks out about the dangers of this moment, politically, which he sees as similar to the late 1930s, and the relentless environmental destruction of the planet, and growing nuclear threats. Disappointed by the loss of momentum for street politics and protests in the US, following the inspiration of Black Lives Matter, Mike worries that protests have become predominantly a franchise of the far right, at a time of existential threats where young people need to take action and speak out. Mike is harshly critical of the way in which Western governments have dealt with Covid, drawing parallels with multilateral approaches to dealing with the climate crisis, particularly the prevailing ideology that finance capitalism is the only force that can save the world environmentally.  Mike Davis was a pioneering American writer, political activist, urban theorist, and historian, best known for his seminal analysis of power and social class in his native Southern California. Over many decades, Davis created a powerful body of work investigating a wide range of issues from urban development and globalisation to the impact of extreme weather systems, the growth of slums, pandemics, and the environment—all underpinned by a profound critique of capitalist social relations and a deep concern for the environment and all kinds of injustice. He was a 1996–1997 Getty Scholar at the Getty Research Institute and received a MacArthur Fellowship Award in 1998. He was the author of some two dozen works of fiction and non-fiction and won the Lannan Literary Award for Nonfiction in 2007.

Beneath the northeastern Minnesota woods lie massive deposits of copper, nickel and cobalt that the Twin Metals company wants to mine. Mining those critical minerals would help the clean energy industry grow to meet the Biden administration's climate change goals. But the administration has rejected plans to build the mine because of risks to the environmentally sensitive site – a decision that has drawn charges of hypocrisy from Republicans. POLITICO's Catherine Morehouse breaks down the politics behind the stalled Minnesota mining project. Plus, the Biden administration has approved an oil export terminal in the Gulf of Mexico over some local environmental and public health concerns.   Josh Siegel is an energy reporter for POLITICO.  Catherine Morehouse is an energy reporter for POLITICO.  Nirmal Mulaikal is a POLITICO audio host-producer.

In our second conversation, Janet reveals that she did part of her commitment, but found traveling not by car took longer than she expected and didn't do it often.At one point in this conversation, she shares she felt she had to reduce pollution. I point out I didn't say she had to reduce pollution. I invited her to manifest emotions she liked.Our society burdens us with thinking we have to ACT BIG! SCALE! SOLVE GLOBAL PROBLEMS!, which create obstacles to starting and prime us to expect it takes work and sacrifice. Environmentalists create that burden as much as anyone. Yet nature is a joy!The Spodek Method aims at first at the modest effect of leading someone to act on intrinsic motivation, which makes acting meaningful and purposeful. I contend the fastest, most effective way to act big, scale, and solve global problems is to start where you can, engage intrinsically, and keep going.After the Spodek Method's mindset shift comes the process of continual improvement, which I distinguish from lots of people doing small things. It's leading to where you enjoy it so you want to keep improving so you do big things because doing them improves your life, so you do more. Big things that spread out of joy, fun, and freedom scale.You'll hear Janet reset her feelings of obligation---extrinsic motivation---in favor of intrinsic motivation to continue joyfully.She also asked me many questions about what I'm doing and following up many episodes she's listened to.

What can the forest teach us of grief, of joy, of humanity? This week, poet and scientist Maya Khosla invites listeners into the forests of Northern California to find deep reverence for the power of biodiversity. Maya's expertise on wildfires shines through this deep and well-informed conversation as she and Ayana share a love for the forest and deep-seated awe for the complexity of forest life. Maya introduces listeners to the science behind forest fires and urges us to see fire as not simply “destructive,” but rather as one of the many cycles of earth. From practices of cultural burning to current studies on post-fire diversity, the creative and regenerative power of the forest cannot be overlooked.Maya Khosla is a wildlife biologist and writer. She served as Sonoma County Poet Laureate (2018-2020), bringing Sonoma's communities together through poetry gatherings and field walks after the 2017 fires. Sonoma County Conservation Council (SCCC) selected her as one of the 2020 Environmentalists of the Year. Her poetry books include “All the Fires of Wind and Light” from Sixteen Rivers Press (2020 PEN Oakland/Josephine Miles Literary Award), “Keel Bone” from Bear Star Press (Dorothy Brunsman Poetry Prize), and “Web of Water: Life in Redwood Creek”. Her writing has been featured in documentary films including “Village of Dust, City of Water,” about the water crises in rural India.Music by Lake Mary, Forest Veil, and Bird By Snow.

Sustaining Creativity Podcast

Creativity through the lens of an Artivist (artist & environmentalist)"Creativity is to express myself, think a bit outside the box and to be uniquely me." Mariska is an artivist (artist & environmentalist) and the host of the Mama Earth Talk podcast. As a painter, sculpture and digital artist her art mediums include acrylic on canvas with recycled materials used in both canvases and sculptural work.  A few years ago, she started to experiment with trash️ in her artwork. She got curious about her new medium and before she knew it, she was spending hours researching how it affects the environment. This created a yearning within her to push her creativity and connect more with nature, and it was not long after that she found myself at the top of Kilimanjaro admiring the world from above. She decided to quit corporate life to focus on her new found passion for the planet, and as they say, the rest was history.In 2018 she took trash to the streets of the UAE and wore all the trash she generated for everyone to see. 30 days and 65 kg of waste later she had the country buzzing with questions about waste and wanting to know how they can reduce it. This was the start of the podcast, Mama Earth Talk.She has worked with many organisations globally, including Azraq, Nespresso, Costa and Dubai International Airport, to drive environmental and sustainable change in their organisations and communities. She inspire change through her artwork, podcasting, and public speaking.

The daily calls to action by environmentalists and stakeholders with concerns related to climate change, urbanisation, pollution and deforestation to name a few, continue to highlight how irresponsible humanity has become in protecting and preserving our natural world. In the midst of an overwhelming amount of waste, the regeneration of resources has become inevitable for everyone.

She strongly believes that an environmentally sustainable society is the best long-term economic and social decision, and is within reach for all people. Having grown up next to an EPA superfund site, she has always cared about the environment and been acutely aware of the impact of industrial pollution. However, she didn't get heavily involved in environmental issues until spring 2020, when she started tackling litter through Friends of the Chicago River's Summer Challenge. She eventually started Chicago Environmentalists group with Miranda, as well as Cleanup Club Chicago. She took the CCC sustainability leadership training in 2021, and for her final assignment, she is running the Guerrilla Recycling Reporting (GRR) Project. It aims to hold property owners accountable for violating the recycling ordinance and change the way the policy is enforced. She also completed the Climate Reality Leadership Corps training, and wants to get more involved in environmental legislation.She currently works as a Business and Brand Developer for Block Bins composting service, and has a bachelor's degree in Economics and Spanish from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She currently lives in Irving Park with her very sweet cockapoo. In her free time, she enjoys true crime, volleyball, and comedy shows.Over the past ten years, Miranda Carrico has transitioned toward a "Zero Waste" lifestyle and has become very familiar with Chicago's sustainability scene; especially related to recycling and waste reduction.  Miranda is passionate about educating individuals on actions they can take to lessen their environmental impact, as well as advocating for sustainable business practices and environmental legislation.  She became more involved in Chicago's larger environmental scene after teaming up with Katherine on the first Cleanup Club event. This led to brainstorming ways to improve environmentalism in Chicago and the creation of Chicago Environmentalists. She is Co-Founder of Chicago Environmentalists, Assistant Director of Cleanup Club Chicago, and completed the Climate Reality Leadership Corps training in 2021. Miranda works in healthcare and has been a Chicagoan for over 10 years, residing in Lakeview. When she's not finding creative ways to reduce waste, she enjoys traveling, exploring the city via bike and by foot, making "mixtapes," and spending time with her husband and dog, Greta von Goof.Chicago Environmentalists provides a forum for discussing topics like zero waste living, recycling, composting, environmental justice, renewable energy, eco policy, local businesses, wildlife conservation, environmental news, events, and more. As of March 2022, the combined total membership of these groups was about 5,500 and growing. Chicago Environmentalists Website: https://www.chicagoenvironmentalists.org/Cleanup Club Chicago Website: https://www.chicagoenvironmentalists.org/cleanupclubchicagoFacebook: @Chicago EnvironmentalistsInstagram: @chicago_enviroSupport the show

As a result, the retirement and re-employment ages for Singapore workers will be raised progressively to 65 and 70 respectively, which will result in an increase in older employees at workplaces over time.

Ray and Kemper are also the hosts of the Love and Freedom podcast, a platform that discusses "current events, challenges, & the opportunities for freedom." The trio talk about the state of politics in Canada and their wish for Bitcoin advocate and Conservative Party leader Pierre Poilievre to come to power. They also debate what global money printing portends for the common person and why this proves the case for Bitcoin once more. Tune in for these and more!Timestamps00:00:00: Intro by Brad and commentary on Canadian politics 00:09:48: Conservative Party leader Pierre Poilievre is a champion for Bitcoin 00:13:20: The excessive money printing in Canada and how Bitcoin comes in00:33:00: On securing your financial future with Bitcoin 00:42:50: Could central banks and surveillance capitalists be behind NFTs and DeFi?00:49:00: Ethereum's proof of stake model flies against principles of decentralization 00:53:23: Delving into Web 3 scams and Dogecoin & Elon Musk01:06:50: For some countries, Bitcoin is not a luxury 01:23:00: Why we need unification in crypto 01:28:35: The role of money printing in propagating wealth inequality01:45:16: Bitcoin is on track to being worth a hundred thousand dollarsCanada's Justin Trudeau in February invoked the Emergencies Act — the never-before-used law since it was enacted in 1988. The unprecedented move was in response to the Freedom Convoy that had caused blockades in major border crossings in the country and gridlock in the capital. The Convoy was protesting against vaccine mandates and passports. The Emergencies Act cleared the "occupation" in Ottawa and also froze the bank accounts of tens of the Convoy organizers and participants. These actions were described by protesters and the opposition as unconstitutional and an overreach. For Bitcoin adherents, it illustrated the need for Bitcoin. Brad, Sunny and Kyle sit down against this backdrop. The three discuss how the Conservative Party — one most Canadians have never voted for — suddenly became the party of choice in the face of everything. It helps that PC leader Pierre Poilievre is a Bitcoin champion. What do all those events mean for the crypto pioneer? The three delve into that, as well as why you personally need Bitcoin, the space's scams, Elon Musk's promoting Dogecoin, Jack Dorsey quitting Twitter, and more. Below are some of the highlights of the conversation. #1. Securing Your Financial Future With BitcoinCovid 19 saw several countries opting to print more money to help keep their economies afloat. But printing more money is bad for the economy since it can trigger inflation. This rampant cash printing saw many corporates previously wary of touching Bitcoin shovelling money into the asset to derisk their finances. Brad reminds people of the importance of doing the same. He and Kyle emphasize the importance of not placing your financial future on whoever is elected.Brad remarks on Bitcoin being more a "productive protest" than a physical protest that the government will crack down on anyway. Sunny contends that Bitcoin needs only to continue existing to prove its importance in the face of such extremes by central banks. #2. Does Ethereum Have a Decentralization Problem?Many praises have been sung on Ethereum's transition from Proof of Work (PoW) validation model to Proof of Stake (PoW). Environmentalists are happy because it will reduce carbon emissions and sections of the cryptocurrency community welcome it because it takes off some of the weight of the environmental impact blame. But PoS allows only those with the means to become validators, making the network more centralized. Brad notes that the Bitcoin documentary "This Machine Greens'' recognizes that PoW can actually help us "to accelerate to renewable energy." As such, PoW is not the environmental threat it's claimed to be. #3. The Resilience of BitcoinThe trio deliberate on the rise of Web 3 products from DeFi to NFTs and whether that's stifling for Bitcoin. The answer is no, with Bitcoin being the "truth and the signal" à la Brad. Kyle likens Bitcoin to a rat for having everything thrown at it but still thriving. Also, the citizens of countries such as Nigeria, El Salvador and Venezuela aren't overly concerned with all these blockchain offshoots because their main concern is Bitcoin, which has a real difference to their lives.

McKibben was the founder of 350.org. He's the author of “The Flag, the Cross, and the Station Wagon: A Graying American Looks Back at His Suburban Boyhood and Wonders What the Hell Happened.” Windwood is co-author of the newly-released book “Leading with Joy: Practices for Uncertain Times.” The two recently launched Third Act, a new environmental group inviting people over 60 to join the movement. The group embraces getting old, taking responsibility and throwing the full weight of the boomers generation at the climate crisis.

Guest Tiernan Sittenfeld had glimpses in high school of not only the grandeur of America's landscapes but also the degradation that was happening within them when she saw clear cuts up close. She was drawn to understand how we can best conserve these lands and the communities linked to them and took advantage of the first opportunity to earn an Environmental Studies certificate in college and take an international study program in Kenya. Those experiences, and a term spent working on a state senate race, made her see the overlap between conservation and politics.She began her career as an organizer leading student communities and expanded into more general audiences, exercising her public speaking skills and community building skills along the way. When she needed to decide whether to pursue a law degree, she realized she'd found a place where she could grow all sorts of skills and tackle bigger and bigger challenges.In this episode, find out from Tiernan how organizing and connecting with others can sometimes help you find your own voice…on Roads Taken with Leslie Jennings Rowley. About This Episode's GuestTiernan Sittenfeld currently serves as Senior Vice President for Government Affairs at the League of Conservation Voters where she has worked for the past 17 years, tirelessly advocating for sound environmental laws and policies to help protect our planet and the communities that are most impacted by climate and environmental change.

The Left can hardly cope with how factual “My Son Hunter” is, so they choose to simply ignore that while attacking the film. Meanwhile, they are loving a new environmentalist film “How To Blow Up A Pipeline,” which encourages violence to end fracking. We discuss these new layers of liberal hypocrisy on this week's Scoop, including another movie that the left promoted and then turned on because of race. We also share a feature interview with the amazing Gina Carano from our time filming “My Son Hunter” in Serbia, and bring you another tasty air fryer recipe. Don't forget to watch the film the establishment doesn't want you to see, and please consider donating to the Unreported Society's efforts.

Dr. Peterson's extensive catalog is available now on DailyWire+: https://utm.io/ueSXhLeftist politicians and the “intellectual elite” prioritize a vague plan for saving earth over the lives of struggling people all over the world. Governments are being forced to press their citizens, straining already fragile economic and agricultural systems, in order to appease a globalist utopian vision. Bjørn Lomborg and Ralph Schoellhammer sit down with Dr Jordan B Peterson to discuss the faults in this plan, and the people who are suffering because of it.Bjørn Lomborg is a Danish author, having written numerous books on climate change such as “False Alarm,” “The Skeptical Environmentalist,” and “How to Spend $75 Billion to Make the World a Better Place.” He is the president of the think tank Copenhagen Consensus Center that focuses on doing the most good, for the most people, with increasingly limited budgets. Previously, Lomborg was the director of the Danish government's Environmental Assessment Institute.Ralph Schoellhammer is a scholar and journalist operating in Europe who has diligently covered overlooked stories such as the Dutch Farmers Protest. He is also an assistant Professor of international relations at Webster Vienna Private University, and produces a podcast following political psychology and institutionalism called the Global Wire. —Links— For LomborgWebsite: https://www.lomborg.com/"What are the smartest solutions for the world?” We did a big book with 50+ teams of economists and several Nobel Laureates, but you can skip to the one-pager hereThinking about climate, read my free, peer-reviewed article, or my new book, False Alarm." For SchoellhammerWebsite: https://www.ralphschoellhammer.net/Article: https://www.newsweek.com/popular-uprising-against-elites-has-gone-global-opinion-1722653Article: https://www.wsj.com/articles/why-europe-hedges-its-support-for-ukraine-russia-crude-oil-lng-gas-imports-exports-kyiv-war-eu-membership-zelensky-putin-germany-france-poland-11653247453Podcast:https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3mxvf7TXw5YfadBmBqGxAg?view_as=subscriber // SUPPORT THIS CHANNEL //Newsletter: https://mailchi.mp/jordanbpeterson.com/youtubesignupDonations: https://jordanbpeterson.com/donate // COURSES //Discovering Personality: https://jordanbpeterson.com/personalitySelf Authoring Suite: https://selfauthoring.comUnderstand Myself (personality test): https://understandmyself.com // BOOKS //Beyond Order: 12 More Rules for Life: https://jordanbpeterson.com/Beyond-Order12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos: https://jordanbpeterson.com/12-rules-for-lifeMaps of Meaning: The Architecture of Belief: https://jordanbpeterson.com/maps-of-meaning // LINKS //Website: https://jordanbpeterson.comEvents: https://jordanbpeterson.com/eventsBlog: https://jordanbpeterson.com/blogPodcast: https://jordanbpeterson.com/podcast // SOCIAL //Twitter: https://twitter.com/jordanbpetersonInstagram: https://instagram.com/jordan.b.petersonFacebook: https://facebook.com/drjordanpetersonTelegram: https://t.me/DrJordanPetersonAll socials: https://linktr.ee/drjordanbpeterson #JordanPeterson #JordanBPeterson #DrJordanPeterson #DrJordanBPeterson #DailyWirePlus
