How many times have you questioned whether or not your life was in alignment with your purpose for being here? With the ever common phenomenon of burnout, fatigue, and drain, it's becoming increasingly common for us to have these never-ending thoughts. This week on the podcast, we take a moment for some deep heart salve with Niria Alicia who guides us to think about ancestral instruction, precious purpose, rituals for liberation, and what it means to be human in this time. This warm and rich conversation looks at spiritual crisis in tandem with climate crisis, the allure of self-sabotage, and the problem with the many “solutions” we are offered to the problems our world faces in this epoch. Niria Alicia is a Xicana Indigena community organizer, human rights advocate, educator and storyteller dedicated to protecting the sacredness of Mother Earth and the dignity of historically oppressed peoples and the more-than-human world. Born 500 years after Columbus' invasion in a migrant farmworker community, her struggle for love and liberation exists at the intersections of migrant justice, climate justice and indigenous rights. In 2020 she was given the highest honor the UN awards young people by being named the Young Champion of the Earth for North America. Niria's proudest accomplishments and honors have been learning how to make tortillas in the traditional way for her abuelita, growing her first milpa from her family's heirloom corn seeds and inheriting her great-great grandmother's metate, a culturally significant ancestral tool made from lava rock that has the hand imprints of the strong women she is proud to descend from.

In todays episode we talk about harmful invasive species in these places we know and love.The Florida everglades are known for a large number of invasive species. We talk about a few that are particularly terrifying. The Burmese python is a large snake that was introduced into the wild through the pet trade. These massive snakes snatch up anything from small creatures to alligators. Along with large snakes, wild boars are also a huge issue in Florida. These feral pigs have found homes all over the south east US after being introduced as livestock from early European settlers.We also talk about the Coqui frog which has taken over the forests of Hawaii. For its small size the frog can let out a loud croak which is an issue among locals. Gypsy Moths are another invasive species that are taking over the Midwest and northern US states. If you see one of these guys do us a favor and give it a good smash.Invasive species are a huge issue globally and recently Pablo Escobar's hippos have come into the news due to their new protection status. We talk about how one of his hippos would match up against the Kentucky coke bear so place your bets on Instagram!If you are interested in the wild world of National Parks follow us for more content!

The UN Climate Summit in Glasgow (COP26) is in its second week. It's been marked by large street protests, a "greenwash trade show" inside the meetings and empty promises by world leaders in the face of climate disaster. Green and Red focuses on movements and what's happening in the streets, so we'll be talking more with organizers and "outside voices" in Glasgow than you'll hear from mainstream media channels. Bob's off on assignment, so Scott's been on top of our Glasgow coverage. He starts with an update with Matt Leonard (@MattOakland) from the Oil and Gas Action Network (@oil_action). Matt's been there for a couple of weeks supporting street actions targeting world leaders like Joe Biden and Boris Johnson, as well as fossil fuel execs and Wall Street bankers wining and dining their way through the climate talks. He talked about reactions and moods of people there, people powered street actions, global climate politics, the role of corporations at COP26 and greenwashing. Scott then gets an update from Emma Rae Lierley (@EmmaRaeLierley) with Rainforest Action Network (@RAN). They discussed Saturday's march and the invisibilization of Indigenous leadership and delegations by the media. They also discussed the (empty) pledge by world leaders to stop deforestation by 2030, the role of reactionary countries such as Brazil and Indonesia and the importance of Indigenous land and forest defenders in stopping deforestation and climate crises. Finally, they also talked about corporations at COP26, public relations strategies, greenwashing and "Net Zero by 2050." We'll be having more voices from Glasgow joining us this week.

Today on Sojourner Truth: On Sunday, October 31, the United Nations Climate Change Conference kicked off the COP26 (Conference of the Parties) in Glasgow, Scotland. Twenty-five thousand delegates from 200 countries are attending, and around 120 heads of state. The conference, which was delayed for a year because of the COVID-19 pandemic, will run until Friday, November 12. Wednesday, November 10, marked one of the most critical days in the ongoing COP26 Conference of the Parties in Glasgow, Scotland. The conference has the stated purpose of taking global action on climate change, which is accelerating the environmental devastation of our planet. On Wednesday, the governments of China and the United States agreed to increase climate cooperation over the next decade. The world's two largest CO2 emitters pledged to act in a joint declaration. The declaration claims that both parties will work together to achieve the 1.5C temperature goal set out in the 2015 Paris Agreement. It also calls for stepped-up efforts to close the significant gap that remains to achieve that target. However, the joint statement was very short on details. And without details, no one knows what, if anything, will come out of the U.S. China agreement. U.S. President Joe Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping are even expected to hold a virtual meeting as early as next week, according to the BBC. Also on Wednesday, a draft agreement being circulated at the UN climate summit calls on countries to phase-out coal power. However, the draft agreement has been roundly criticized for failing to address the crisis. The UN Secretary General said that as of now, COP26 is on life support. By all accounts, unless something dramatic happens, it seems governments will have once again failed to address the climate catastrophe. Our guest is Souparna Lahiri, based in New Delhi, India. Souparna is the Global Forest Coalition's Climate Campaigner and Advisor. The Global Forest Coalition (GFC) is an international coalition of NGOs and Indigenous Peoples Organizations defending social justice and the rights of forest peoples in forest policies. We also hear from Vijay Kumar Thallam, the Advisor to Government of Andhra Pradesh for Agriculture & Cooperation, and in charge of implementation of natural farming in Andhra Pradesh. Lastly, Patrick Ioakimedes joins us to discuss an upcoming California Poor People's Campaign event focused on environmental devastation.

Chronic inflammatory diseases are on the rise, especially in so-called industrialized countries that have been structured by the hands of colonialism. Could this collective inflammation we are experiencing be a sign from our bodies that we are indeed mired in systemically unhealthy living conditions? What we might have once understood as an individual ailment, must now be understood as a side effect of daily exposures of air pollution, economic precarity, contaminated water, police brutality, mounting debt, and an overall increasingly difficult social structure to stay afloat in. In this week's episode, Dr. Rupa Marya and Raj Patel discuss the biological impacts of oppressive social structures. We are left with the resounding reminder that inflammation is an indicator that we must change our collective ways in order to heal, and in today's world that requires us to dismantle oppressive systems and expand our understanding of health beyond inadequate colonial definitions. Dr. Rupa Marya is a physician, an activist, a mother, and a composer. She is an associate professor of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, where she practices and teaches internal medicine. She is a cofounder of the Do No Harm Coalition, a collective of health workers committed to addressing disease through structural change. Raj Patel is a research professor at the University of Texas at Austin's Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs, a professor in the University's Department of Nutrition, and a research associate at Rhodes University, South Africa.

Initiatives to plant billions and even trillions of trees have been popping up like seedlings after a rainstorm. These are important in tackling climate change and biodiversity loss, but what about using natural regeneration, where one allows a forest to regrow using its native seedstock, in such efforts?   On this episode we discuss the amazing power of letting forests regrow, and when tree-planting is necessary, plus what we know about the differences between planted and naturally regenerated forests with two guests: University of California professor Karen Holl describes the conditions that are conducive to natural regeneration of forests and shares inspiring examples ranging from current experiments to historical events like in Costa Rica and the Northeast United States. And researcher/restoration consultant Robin Chazdon discusses the decision-making process that goes into successful reforestation projects, and whether today's tree-planting campaigns are likely to be beneficial in the long run.

Forests have long been celebrated in literature as a repository or life and solitude.  But Dr. Suzanne Simard says they are also an important repository of wisdom—a wisdom passed from tree to tree as they communicate with one another. Dr. Simard is a Professor of Forest Ecology in the Department of Forest and Conservation Sciences at the University of British Columbia (UBC), Canada.  She is particularly known for her work on belowground networks that connect the creatures of the forest, and how these are fundamental to the complex adaptive nature of ecosystems. At UBC, she facilitates a vibrant research program, a teaching program focused on forest ecology and complexity science.  A strong contributor to the forestry profession in Canada, her research is motivated by her desire for protecting our fundamental right to a clean and healthy environment.  She contributes to this goal by conducting scientific research on the synergies and complexities of our natural world and the development of sustainable land stewardship practices that both conserve and protect the environment.  Her research is centered on understanding the vital relationships between plants, microbes, soils, carbon, nutrients and water that underlie the adaptability, resilience and recovery of ecosystems.  She works primarily in forests, but also grasslands, wetlands, tundra and alpine ecosystems.  She strives to communicate this research so that it is understandable and usable to all people and is dedicated to empowering people with science-based knowledge and tools to manage and heal the land from human impacts including climate change.

A conversation with WRI Senior Fellow Frances Seymour, who says there's plenty of reason to believe the Glasgow Leaders' Declaration on Forests and Land Use could deliver on its high ambition of ending and reversing deforestation -- not so much because of the declaration itself, but because of the constellation of world events that birthed it. Frances is also co-author of the book "Why Forests? Why Now? The Science, Economics, and Politics of Tropical Forests and Climate Change."

Unless otherwise noted, all Web addresses mentioned were functional as of 11-5-21. TRANSCRIPT OF AUDIO From the Cumberland Gap to the Atlantic Ocean, this is Virginia Water Radio for the week of November 8, 2021. MUSIC – ~12 sec – instrumental. That's part of “Racing the Sun,” by The Faux Paws, on that group's 2021 self-titled album, from Great Bear Records.  It opens a revised episode from November 2013, where we explore a sun-driven process that's fundamental to life on earth: photosynthesis, the process where green plants and algae make food, using the energy in sunlight to store chemical energy in the form of glucose.  Photosynthesis is also… VOICES IN SKIT - ~1 min./57 sec. REPORTER: We break into this show to bring you exclusive audio from the Virginia Tech campus, where a shadowy team of scientists are tinkering with the process underlying all life on earth.  They haven't yet revealed their possibly nefarious plans, so let's listen in... SCIENTIST 1: With this terrarium, we have a model system to test our carbon dioxide-manipulation scheme, and soon we'll be ready to control earth's fundamental food-producing process... SCIENTISTS 1 and 2: Photosynthesis! SCIENTIST 2: Are all the components of the system ready?  Green plants with chlorophyll? SCIENTIST 1: Check! SCIENTIST 2: Soil with proper nutrients? SCIENTIST 1.  Check! SCIENTIST 2. Light? SCIENTIST 1.  Check! SCIENTIST 2.  Water? SCIENTIST 1.  Check! SCIENTIST 2.  Air with CO2? SCIENTIST 1.  CO2? SCIENTIST 2.  That's carbon dioxide! SCIENTIST 1.  Oh...right...I mean, check! SCIENTIST 2.  Let the photosynthesis start!  Engage monitoring device! SCIENTIST 1.  CO2 taken in from the air...water and nutrients being absorbed through roots...light falling on leaves.  All systems go!  Light energy is driving CO2 and water to combine and form glucose, the chemical-energy form, while releasing oxygen. SCIENTIST 2.  Apply the CO2 inhibitor! SCIENTIST 1.  Lid applied!  CO2 source blocked...system CO2 levels dropping rapidly...plants responding as expected, using up available CO2. SCIENTIST 2.  Reverse manipulation!  Apply the CO2 increaser! SCIENTIST 1. Lid removed!  CO2 added...plants responding.  Wait, they're responding too fast!  They're growing beyond the walls!  One has me...aieeeeeeee! SCIENTIST 2.  Now it's got me, too!  Noooooooo..... REPORTER: Well, this might be a good time for us to return to our regular show.  Back to you.... END VOICES IN SKIT Unlike this skit, with its far-fetched human-eating plants, there's nothing make-believe about Earth life's reliance on photosynthesis using sunlight, chlorophyll, nutrients, water, and carbon dioxide to make food.  Moreover, photosynthesis is a fundamental aspect of understanding and responding to climate change.  Photosynthesis millions of years ago created the hydrocarbon compounds that constitute today's fossil fuels, and photosynthesis now—absorbing and storing some of the carbon dioxide released in fossil fuel burning—has an important role in reducing Earth's carbon dioxide levels, warming, and other climate-change impacts.  For example, the capacity for photosynthesizing trees to take up atmospheric carbon dioxide was one aspect of the “Declaration on Forests and Land Use” at the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties, or COP26, in Glasgow, Scotland, from October 31 to November 12, 2021. Thanks to Eli Heilker and John Kidd for participating in this episode.  Thanks also to Andrew VanNorstrand for permission to use part of “Racing the Sun.”  We close with another musical selection appropriate for the climate challenges facing the COP26 meeting and all of us.  Here's about 25 seconds of “On a Ship,” by Blacksburg, Va., musician Kat Mills. MUSIC - ~ 24 sec – Lyrics: “We are riding on a ship,” then instrumental.

This week we are rebroadcasting our interview with Kerry Knudsen, originally aired in April of 2019. Lichens make up around eight percent of our planet's biomass, yet rarely do we pay much attention to these symbiotic, part algae, part fungi organisms. In this episode, For The Wild speaks to one of the world's leading lichenologists, Kerry Kent Knudsen. Ayana's conversation with Kerry spans the dreamiest of worlds, from the surreal and psychedelic presence of lichens to the magic of creating life post-capitalism. In addition to Kerry's field-based understanding of lichen, Kerry also speaks to the times we are living in, “just like the butterfly that beats its wings and causes a rainstorm around the other side of the world, we have to embrace the chaos of our lives.” In embracing this chaos, Kerry reminds us that we may very well find creation, bring our magic to fruition, and embody complete unity with reality wherever we may be. Kerry Kent Knudsen is a mycological taxonomist and lichenologist at the University of Life Sciences in Prague. Kerry founded a lichen herbarium at the University of California at Riverside and has published 215 papers and articles on lichens. He is a specialist in the lichen biodiversity of southern California and in the order of Acarosporales, which occur around the world. With his wife Jana Kocourkova, who is also a lichenologist, they have begun a four-year project working on lichen biodiversity in the Chihuahuan Desert in New Mexico.

Professor Deborah Lawrence is a pioneer in tropical forest ecology, but also in integrating a broad variety of academics and real world experiences to better understand environmental problems and solutions. In this episode we talk from the theme of "de-fragmentation" as a fundamental solution for people today, socially and environmentally. We divide the interview into three sections. In part 1 Dr. Lawrence shares an overview of her scientific work distinguishing tropical forests as having greater influence over global climate and weather than other ecosystems. In part 2 she talks about her “awakening” to animals and rainforests and the Indigenous people in them, during college, which led to roughly six years of research in remote Borneo. That experience had a tragic end, but 15 years later had a beautiful resolution. She shares about that journey and its value today. And in the third segment, Dr. Lawrence talks about her vision for an optimal future for everyone. About Deborah LawrenceDeborah Lawrence, Ph.D., is Director of the Environmental Thought & Practice program and a Professor of Environmental Sciences at the University of Virginia, Charlottesville.

She is an adviser to the US Forest Service and US AID. She has spent more than twenty-five years doing field-based research in Indonesia, Costa Rica, Mexico, and Cameroon. She and her students work with partners in hydrology, atmospheric science, economics, anthropology, ethics, engineering, law, and more to understand the drivers and consequences of the issues around ecosystem destruction. She has earned numerous awards, including a Guggenheim Fellowship, a fellowship from the National Academy of Sciences, and a Fulbright Scholarship. She earned her undergrad at Harvard University, her Ph.D. at Duke, and was a post-doctoral fellow at Harvard. Learn more about Dr. Lawrence's work here and here. Notes -- This episode explores its topics under the theme of De-Fragmentation. Section 1: Tropical Forest “Teleconnections”. We begin by discussing Dr. Lawrence's breakthrough 2014 study on Tropical Forest teleconnections: AKA, tropical forests' influence on global moisture cycles. Tropical rainforests are better at stabilizing global climate than any other land-based ecosystem. Dr. Lawrence shares:  Definition of tropical forest teleconnections Her biggest takeaways from that study, today  How trees' leaves serve the whole planet. “Leaves are tiny pumps.” (Chris) Whether or not tropical re-forestation can reduce heat and drought around the world The power of thoughtful reforestation and deforestation Two recommendations for how to protect tropical rainforests.  Section 2: Lessons learned in Borneo. Dr. Lawrence tells us how she ended up living and working in a remote village in Borneo for roughly six years until “getting kicked out.” She shares general as well as very profound, personal lessons learned from that time. Check "Quotes" below for some takeaways.  Section 3: Envisioning an Optimal Future. Professor Lawrence expands on her earlier statements from this interview: that we need to work to be connected to each other and the planet, know all we can about how to protect the rainforests, change our economy, recognize the environment as our life-support system, feel the miraculousness of photosynthesis, conserve more, and help more because we care more. See Quotes for takeaways.  Quotes“Tree cover stabilizes climate.""There are certain scale effects of deforestation. Scale matters. If you can think through the local climate and the local atmospheric dynamics you can figure out how to manage rainfall through deforestation.""The atmosphere is all connected. Forests move a lot of moisture through their leaves... That sets up a bunch of dynamics in the atmosphere that come out of the Tropics and ultimately have ripple effects across the globe... We need to protect large, large patches of forest.""Know all you can about the products you consume. Address climate through the political system. We need to act.""Work together. Try to be connected.""The first thing that struck me from almost the get go, is that people are the same everywhere. They wanted to eat, a decent house, schooling for their kids, care for their family when they were sick, and enough money to throw a great wedding for their kids. That was it! I'm pretty sure that's what I want, as a parent, I mean, it's pretty much the same thing. So, stunning to me. I mean, maybe not stunning — of course, we're all the same. Maybe you just don't get that if you don't actually go somewhere else and discover they just want the same things.”“Water keepers are everywhere. The water is a big thing everywhere.”“Working together is how you do it when things are hard. You pull together for planting, for healing, for parties… We can work together and we can find a path.” “When making big decisions, it's important to be thoughtful and move a bit slowly, especially when those decisions have to do with the land. . . You cannot walk back decisions to deforest the planet. The better thing to do is just to not do it in the first place. . . Our planet depends on leaving these forests alone. . . It is simple, hard and utterly important.”“And I thought, “Oh my goodness, it wasn't all me…” I had spent 15 years blaming myself, and I knew in fact I was to blame, I had plenty of blame, but to know that I was forgiven, and that these people were sorry, and that it wasn't all lost… Aside from my kids — the other best thing that's ever happened to me was to get this back, to feel like it wasn't lost; I wasn't lost to them and they weren't lost to me.”“I hope we ALL have a chance in less than 15 years to go back to whoever we hurt or whoever we failed and to get some clarity or some forgiveness. I think a really important message is that you shouldn't give up on people, and that people make mistakes, big ones. We're all human. These sound like cliches, but it's the truth. We do make mistakes. It's important to try hard to stay connected. Try hard to stay connected and if you get disconnected try even harder to get reconnected. When I think about my deepest failure, it was a failure to listen and a failure to maybe ask for more… I think the best thing you can do is actually discuss your feelings, and for me now, the message now, is that this extends to the way i feel about our planet and our future… and the fact that we have to work together, and if we don't we stand to lose a lot. We stand to lose not only our connection to the planet, which sustains us, but our connection to each other… So I think trying to be connected is the way we get through this.”“We should be skeptical of our own stories because we don't actually know it all.”“This fragmented world that we live in is something we have got to come to grips with... Our country was built on slavery... Our country was inhabited before we got here, and we took that land... The other acknowledgment that we need is that we are living in this lifeboat called, “the planet Earth,” and it is our life-support system, it's the only one we have, and we depend on it utterly... I hope it becomes another one of those acknowledgements, that the Earth is sustaining us, and we need to remember that everyday.”"My vision for the future is that we are fundamentally not so divided from each other.""I want us to be a people who are together with each other and together with the planet.""My ideal future: we nailed it and we addressed climate change and when climate catastrophes hit we help because we want to help each other out... A cleaner world, full of energy, from people and for people." Thanks for listening!

New research shows that several UN-protected forests are now emitting more carbon dioxide than they can absorb, mostly because of wildfires. Ten forest sites that enjoy World Heritage status from the UN's scientific and cultural arm, Unesco are now said to be affected. It's a change that has recently been observed in the world's biggest rainforest, the Amazon. Also in the programme, Russia records its worst day for Covid infections and deaths - tighter restrictions have just come into force in Moscow but some are sceptical. We hear from Nigeria about the return of the first Benin Bronzes, which were looted in colonial times, and how not finding something reveals more about the origins of the universe.

As the ocean warms and grows more hostile, the icy waters of the Taku river have served as refuge for salmon and an abundance of more-than-human kin. However, threats from mining and resource extraction are posed to forever change the habitat of the watershed. The 1957 abandonment of the Tulsequah Chief Mine in British Columbia left a disastrous environmental impact. This mine still requires billions of dollars worth of clean up action and constant monitoring to ensure the protection of this river system. The Tulsequah Chief serves as just one example of threats to the vital river systems of so-called Canada and The United States. The Taku, the Unuk, and the Stikine are all transboundary rivers beginning in British Columbia, Canada, and flowing through to Alaska. They are unique both in their beauty and abundance, and in the inter-governmental action required to regulate them. The Boundary Waters Treaty of 1909 dictates relations across international borders, but the treaty alone will not protect these rivers from acid mine drainage and continued extraction. Chris Zimmer invites us to imagine what clean, healthy rivers can bring us, and to propel love for these rivers towards ethical action. Chris Zimmer is the Alaska Campaign Director of Rivers Without Borders. Based in Juneau, Chris has been with Rivers Without Borders since 2001. Chris enjoys fishing and hunting in the watersheds he helps to protect.Music by Jon Yonts, GoldenOak, and Larkhall.Visit our website at forthewild.world for the full episode description, references, and action points.

The abundance of the Klamath River has been severely restricted since the late 1700s by way of mining, logging, and damming. Once home to the third-largest salmon run in the lower 48, now Northern California is risking the collapse of its entire salmon population. After two decades of activism, the Klamath River dams will finally be removed by 2023, restoring salmon access to more than 400 miles of habitat. However, this is merely one example of the ways in which land has been chronically mismanaged across the so-called United States. This week we speak to Yurok fisherman and activist, Samuel Gensaw III, on the ways in which Northern California has served as a continuous extraction site for colonial development. This expansive conversation begins by looking at resource extraction, but moves into a larger dialogue on our collective responsibility to world renewal, bringing back balance to our relationships, how to instill new values without appropriating cultural traditions, and the Ancestral Guard's Victorious Gardens program featured in the film Gather. Samuel Gensaw III is the founding director of the Award-winning Ancestral Guard program. Currently, he is the youngest person to serve as the vice-chairman of the Yurok tribe's natural resources committee. He and fellow Ancestral Guard members are featured in the documentary, Gather, which focuses on the growing movement among Native Americans to reclaim their spiritual, political, and cultural identities through food sovereignty.

One story is about bandicoots -- these are marsupials; like kangaroos and wallabies; they just don't walk with their rear legs. Each time they dig, these little rat-looking animals contribute to the health of the ecosystem because this way, the soil catches more water and nutrients. Another story is about the adorable squirrels! A recent study by the University of California claims that squirrels have personality types, like humans. We also have another story about the Hollowhog. Designed by Matt Stephens from NSW, it's a wood carving tool designed to make holes in trees so that animals can live inside it.

Dallas Goldtooth joins Ayana in a conversation around toxic masculinity, accountability, and dismantling patriarchy. So often, conversations around gender wounds quickly deteriorate into oversimplifications of, and accusations towards, one gender or another – failing to realize how we are all hurting under patriarchy. Toxic masculinity, settler colonialism, and white supremacy are impelling us to a point of no return. If you are coming to this conversation as an environmental advocate, understand that in order to shift our relationship from that of domination over “nature” to one of reciprocity and understanding of the ecosystem we are a part of, we must examine our values with one another. “Dallas Goldtooth is the Keep it in the Ground Campaign Organizer for the Indigenous Environmental Network.

The August Complex Fire burned more than one million acres across three national forests and destroyed hundreds of structures. But devastating fires are not limited to California. Across the West, more than 10 million acres burned in 2020—a record in modern history. These fires consumed more than 17,500 structures and more than $3.5 billion in firefighting costs. Tragically, dozens of lives were lost, and many more people were displaced by evacuation orders. Fires released smoke that degraded air quality nearby and hundreds of miles away. They also destroyed wildlife habitat, including for imperiled species, and the fires' aftereffects will soon lead to erosion that harms water quality in local watersheds. .
