Ms. Deb Ozarko of Ontario, Canada is the author of “Unplug” and “Beyond Hope: Letting Go of a World in Collapse.” She is also a graphic designer, the creator and host of the Unplug podcast, an “unapologetic vegan,” and an Ironman triathlon competitor.

I couldn’t do it.”

As a little girl, Deb also had premonitions about the potential destruction of the planet. She recalls sobbing to her mother, saying, “I just want to live long enough to see the healing of the Earth.” “It wasn’t something that was a constant. It was something that I would pick up now and then. And it would come in waves.”

Deb discusses some of the many environmental problems our Earth is now facing. Although the book discusses the immense environmental problems facing our world, Deb finds personal solace in spending time with animals. Deb explains that these animals, especially the baby squirrels, have taught her many lessons…
