Sustainable Cocoa: A Global Effort, Part 2 of 2

Sustainable Cocoa: A Global Effort, Part 2 of 2

As chocolate becomes ever more popular, the demand for cocoa will continue to rise. And in order to produce more cocoa without causing environmental damage such as deforestation and soil degradation, cocoa farmers need to adopt more sustainable agricultural method. A research team from Zurich’s Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule (ETH) has found solutions to some of these problems. In the next part of the show, we’ll examine a serious issue surrounding cocoa production - child labor. The chocolate value chain is unevenly distributed. Most cocoa farmers do not receive a fair share of this money. As consumers, we can help end this practice by purchasing Fair Trade certified products.

Sustainable Cocoa: A Global Effort, Part 1 of 2

Through the years, cocoa cultivation has grown to the point where the crop is now being mass produced. Environmental groups and other organizations have voiced concern over the mounting ecological impact of the expansion of cocoa farming. One result of this expansion is the clearing of tropical forest areas required for cocoa farms. “Without action,” the report reads, “Ghana stands to lose all remaining forests outside its national parks in the next decade.” Fortunately, as global awareness of the deforestation caused by cocoa farming has grown, so has the increase in efforts to restore the precious tropical forests.

The Ethics and Climate Change Relationship: An Interview with Dr. Jeff Sebo, Part 2 of 2

MA program will be one of the first graduate programs in animal studies in the world. I hope that they can take away an appreciation for why animals and the environment matter. I think that a lot of people, when they think about this type of information can have a tendency to either be overly optimistic or overly pessimistic. And I think the reality is that there are opportunities to make the world a better place and mitigate some of these harms. I spend a lot of time working, but I also like doing fun creative projects improv comedy and hip hop.

The Ethics and Climate Change Relationship: An Interview with Dr. Jeff Sebo, Part 1 of 2

Historically, we have dominated and exploited other animals and nature for our own benefit, and that has come from a sense that we are more important than anything else on this planet. We belong here and everything else belongs here for our benefit. That ideology, that narrative does have to change. We have to learn how to gracefully coexist with other animals and with natural systems in a sustainable way, and that will have to involve pretty dramatic changes to the way that we live.

The Adventurous Mr. Rob Greenfield - Living Earth-Friendly, Part 3 of 3

The first step that someone can take to living a simpler life. I think the first step is a step that feels right to you. Something that you feel like you can do right now. And for each person that could be totally different. For some people, maybe they feel like they could move to a more plant-based diet tomorrow and it would feel great and it would feel right. For some people maybe they feel like they could start their bike more. Some people feel like, they could fund a local organization. Maybe they have a lot of extra money and they could fund a local organization that can feed tens of thousands of people.

The Adventurous Mr. Rob Greenfield - Living Earth-Friendly, Part 1 of 3

My name is Rob Greenfield, and I’m an adventurer and an activist. Normally I live a near zero-waste life. But lately people have been calling me “The Trash Man”. I have been living just like the average American for the last month in New York City, wearing every single piece of trash that I create everywhere I go. In 2011, I was living a fairly normal American lifestyle. But then I started to watch a lot of documentaries, read a lot of books, realized that everything that I was doing was causing destruction to the world. At that point I decided to change my life.

As Dr.Rockstrom shares his insights on how we can restore the health of our precious planet. That we need to peak emissions of greenhouse gases no later than 2020. Must take us to a net zero carbon economy by mid-century. Let's hope we do so.
