Right now the way we are treating Mother Earth means that our children and our children’s children may not experience the beauty we get to witness today. I want to be more of a voice for Mamma Earth because first and foremost change starts with us. We CAN make a difference and there’s no better person than today’s podcast guest Josh Tickell to tell help us understand what we can all be doing to make a real difference.
Josh is a journalist, futurist, author, and award-winning film director whose movies (Fuel, The Big Fix, Pump and Good Fortune) have been shortlisted for Academy Awards, shown in the White House, won awards at the Sundance Film Festival, and have been viewed by over 50 million people worldwide. His first book, From the Fryer to the Fuel Tank, jump started the biodiesel movement and raised billions of dollars for the algae fuel industry. And his second book ‘Kiss the Ground – How the Food You Eat Can Reverse Climate Change, Heal Your Body & Ultimately Save Our World’ is out now and his message needs to be heard by all because we can ALL be agents for change, we can ALL make a difference and we ALL need to work together to preserve our precious Mamma Earth.
