#122 Working Together: The Fastest Way to Our Green Transition. In the last few episodes I have discussed several topics relating to how our transition to a more sustainable economy will have a direct impact on everyone. These topics have included electric vehicles, an environmentally friendly economy, renewable energy and total decarbonization of our society. There is nothing about our lives that will go untouched. Obviously there are numerous barriers to making this transition. And certainly there will be a lot of resistance due to big business protecting their self interest. However it is completely possible through individual and community action that we can move forward toward a more sustainable future.And that is the focus of E122, Working Together, the Fastest Way to Our Green Transition. Always remember to live sustainably because this is how we build a better future. Patrick
#123 Mastering the Sustainability Mindset One to the fundamental principles related to being self sufficient is that first and foremost you have to accept that you are ultimately responsible for everything that you choose to do and everything that you choose not to do.The same is true when it comes to being sustainable. We first have to accept that every single thing we do has some sort of an impact. Once we realize that, then we have to accept that responsibility. After all the choices we make, what we eat, the house we live in, the vehicle that we drive, and how much we travel all makes a difference.But why is it that more people do not have this mind-set? And that is the topic of E123 Mastering the Sustainability Mindset. Always remember to live sustainably because this is how we build a better future. Patrick

Earth911 Podcast: Carbios' Emmanuel Ladent on the Dawn of Enzymatic Plastic Recycling Is plastic recycling at a turning point? Meet Emmanuel Ladent, CEO of Carbios, a Clermont-Ferrand, France-based company that has developed an enzymatic plastic recycling technology that promises to make plastic a circular material with 95% yields, comparable to aluminum. The Carbios technology recycles polyethylene terephthalate, or clear and colored PET, better known as Plastic #1, which is the basis for making billions of single-use bottles and thermoform containers for produce, as well as the polyester used in clothing. Carbios' process requires no sorting of PET and polyester, relying on much lower temperatures than mechanical recycling, so it requires less energy water. Emmanuel explains that the Carbios process produces two monomers, the chemical basis for making new PET, which can be recycling many times contrast to the two or three cycles today's PET recycling can deliver.Plastic recycling has stumbled and greenwashed its way through a slow evolution and created a lot of distrust among consumers and governments. Chemical, molecular, and enzymatic plastic recycling have all appeared in the last several years with promises that plastic can be turned from a linear waste-creating system that fills landfills with pollution to a circular economy that keeps all, or virtually all of the plastic we use in circulation without the need for virgin plastic made from oil. If we can recycle PET efficiently, and create the infrastructure and consumer habits that support recycling PET at global scales, it would be a huge step forward to a circular economy.

Earth911 Podcast: eBliss CEO Bill Klehm's Vision for the Electrification of Local Transportation If we intend to avoid the worst impacts of climate change, the future of local transportation must look a lot different than today’s car- and heavy vehicle-dominated traffic. The U.S. Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy reports that 64% of trips, across all types of transportation, involve traveling less than 5 miles. Only 2% of trips reach more than 50 miles. Local transportation is ripe for reinvention and my guest today is working to introduce electric bikes and light vehicles that can displace the car and truck. Meet Bill Klehm, Chairman and CEO of eBliss, an electric bike maker developing more than 30 new eBike models designed for local personal and business use. Bill brings hefty transportation credentials to the alternative transportation startup. He led the launch of Ford’s customer service division, developed the CarFax vehicle history report, was CEO of Fallbrook Technologies, which introduced a novel transmission technology for bicycles, and was president of Ford’s Visteon Climate Control Systems LTD.Bill and his team launched eBliss in 2022 and several models are currently available from EVOKE and The Ride. eBliss bikes feature European Union-certified batteries and the ccompany is developing a comprehensive recycling program to ensure materials and bike components are reused and recycle to reduce the carbon and water impacts compared to to using virgin materials. We discuss the future of battery technology, including how to eliminate the threat of fire from eBike batteries, along with eBliss' plans to delivery highly personalized electric bikes, light vehicles and delivery vehicles that combine human and electric power. Bill contends that moving past cars in local transportation will create a healthier and more prosperous lifestyle, including the dawn of the three-bike garage.

Earth911 Podcast: The Rise of Recommerce with eBay Chief Sustainability Officer Renee Morin eBay estimates that sales of used goods on the site earned $4.6 billion in 2022 and avoided sending 73,000 tons of usable products to landfills, which contributed to reducing carbon emissions by 1.6 million tons. Renee Morin, Chief Sustainability Officer at eBay, returns to the show to discuss the findings of the 2022 eBay Recommerce Report, a survey of more than 11,000 small sellers on the marketplace. Forty-two percent of the people surveyed said they rely on eBay to earn extra cash and 56% said they participate because it is less expensive while 93% reported that they believe it is important to shop in ways that are better for the environment.Renee discusses how sellers are changing as new generations grow into adulthood, embrace buying and selling used goods, and develop habits and income strategies that involve selling products instead of sending them to a landfill. eBay services, such as its Authenticity Guarantee and Refurbishment program, are critical to creating a trustworthy used-goods marketplace. She also reports on eBay's waste diversion efforts and how improved insight into its GHG emissions, particularly the shipping-related Scope 3 emissions that represent 99.01% of its carbon impact, will help the company reach its 2030 sustainability goals.

Earth911 Podcast: Earth Day's Michael Karapetian on Participating in the Great Global Cleanup 2023 Earth Day 2023, which takes place on April 22, marks the 53rd year that people have come out into the streets to rally for planetary responsibility, joined park and environmental cleanups, and participated in climate learning events. The first Earth Day was the largest public demonstration in history as of that that time. Michael Karapetian, the Great Global Cleanup Campaign Coordinator for Earth Day Network explains how to participate in this year's Great Global Cleanup events, which will be focused on improving the management of waste, particularly food waste. Cleanup events give everyone — individuals and organizations — the “opportunity to see the positive, tangible impacts their actions have on our environment and in the fight to create a waste-free world.” Getting out to clean up a park or a beach, where finding plastic litter is a powerful reminder about the choices we make when buying and disposing of items made with plastic, which range from fast-fashion polyester clothing to bottles and cigarette butts. Michael also provides updates about Earth Day Network's End Plastic Pollution movement and discusses recent reforestation projects in India, where the Canopy Project is planting mangrove trees in coastal areas. You can find local cleanups and learn how to participate in Earth Day events all year long at https://www.earthday.org/
Earth911 Podcast: NAPCOR Study Suggests PET Bottles are More Sustainable Than Metal and Glass Take a deep dive into plastic recycling and the environmental impacts of plastic, aluminum and glass beverage containers. A recent lifecycle analysis published by the National Association for PET Container Resources (NAPCOR), the industry group whose members made the 485 billion polyethylene terephthalate, or #1 plastic, bottles that lined the shelves of groceries and convenience stores around the world during 2021. These bottles and frequently end up as litter in the environment. Lauren Laibach, director of data services at NAPCOR, joins the conversation to discuss the organization’s new analysis, which shows that PET bottles have a lower environmental impact than glass and aluminum beverage packaging.According to the report, which compared the packaging needed to deliver 1,000 gallons of beverages and not by comparing similarly sized bottles and and cans, PET bottles require 80% less energy to produce, create 80% less solid waste by weight, and use 53% less water during production. In addition to the reported energy, waste, and water reductions, PET packaging purportedly has a 74% lower global warming potential and generates 68-83% fewer acid rain- and smog-forming emissions. In 2021, however, only 28.6% of PET bottles and packaging were recycled, which lags behind the EPA’s reported 2018 data for metals, when 70.9% of steel cans and 50.4% of aluminum cans were recycled. NAPCOR’s Executive Director, Laura Stewart, said that the new lifecycle analysis shows “A PET bottle is 100% recyclable and can be made with 100% recycled content.” That is an inherently controversial statement and we’ll do our best to tease apart these complex findings.

Earth911 Podcast: SHARC Energy Systems CEO Lynn Mueller on Wastewater Energy Transfer Technologies Wasted energy flows into the environment all over the world, and an immense 247 trillion gallons of wastewater heated to an average temperature of 60.8F contributes to warming local waterways and the oceans. We could recapture the heat energy for other uses before returning water to rivers, lakes and the oceans. The process of harvesting that lost energy is known as wastewater energy transfer, or WET. Our guest, Lynn Mueller, CEO of Vancouver, BC-based SHARC Energy Systems, is a pioneer of WET technology. SHARC has installed its system in Vancouver to serve 6.4 million square feet of home, office, and hospital and educational space. Among other projects, SHARC is working to blend its WET technology with geothermal sources of energy to provide renewable heating and cooling energy, along with hot water to residents of a 316-unit affordable housing project in the Bronx section of New York City. A study by King County, Washington, found that reusing heat captured by WET systems reduced the carbon footprint of an office building by 34% and the footprint of a mixed-use buildings by 71%. WET technology is installed to allow warm sewage to pass through a thermal exchange system that captures the heat energy and transfers it for use generating electricity, warming water and building interiors. Once cooled, the sewage continues to a water treatment plant, where the sludge extracted can be converted into biofuels, and reintroduction into the environment without contribute to thermal forcing of river and ocean temperatures. These systems are efficient: WET energy costs 20% as much as generating the same amount of energy from other sources.

Earth911 Podcast: Nexus Circular CEO Jodie Morgan on Plastic Recycling Progress The evolution of plastic recycling is essential to cleaning up a plastic-addicted world and eliminating the need for oil extraction. Meet Jodie Morgan, CEO of Nexus Circular, who discusses the company's progress and a flurry of news that has placed it at the forefront of the next generation of plastics recycling. In June of 2021, we talked with Jeff Gold, founder and CEO of Nexus Circular. At the time, the company had been operating a test facility for a couple of years. Nexus Circular developed an advanced chemical recycling technology that can make plastic as recyclable as metals, in which only a few percent of the material is lost each time it is processed. By contrast, traditional mechanical recycling technologies are effective only once or twice before the plastic molecules are degraded and become useless.Recyclable plastic does not justify buying more plastic. Still, the prospect of recycling mixed Plastics #2, #4, #5, and #6 to make new plastics means even landfilled plastics could be mined to replace raw petroleum as a feedstock. In January, Nexus raised $150 million to build additional capacity and launched a ten-year agreement to provide recycled plastic to Braskem America. In February, Nexus announced a long-term partnership with Chevron Phillips Chemical to make a circular form of polyethylene, the plastic used in food wraps, shopping bags, and detergent bottles. Given their progress, could a Nexus Circular IPO in the offing that might represent the first next-generation sustainable company to go public and ignite a stock market rally in green investing?

John Kinney, CleanFund Today's guest is John Kinney, Founder, CEO and Managing Partner at CleanFund. CleanFund specializes in PACE financing, an innovative way for property owners to finance public good improvements to their buildings, including clean energy, efficiency, and resiliency through their property taxes. CleanFund got its start in Berkeley, California in 2009 and initiated the first privately funded PACE transaction focused on solar power. Since then, PACE financing options have taken hold in dozens of states across the USA, and CleanFund serves as an enabling mechanism in all of them. CleanFund specifically focuses on C-PACE or Commercial PACE, which means that it's wholly focused on commercial buildings. C-PACE can be applied to new construction or building retrofit projects, and the types of projects that qualify for C-PACE vary by state or locality. It's going to take new ways of thinking about things for us to drive the decarbonization of our economy as fast as possible. With CleanFund, John is focusing on the huge emissions footprint of the built environment and is helping property managers and lenders unlock new tools to finance needed clean energy upgrades. In this episode, we cover: John's transition from fitness into climateAn overview of PACE or “Property Assessed Clean Energy”Difference between residential and commercial PACEImpacts of building regulations and penaltiesNew Hyatt construction example in Salt Lake CityAn overview of CleanFund and its role in PACEWho's on the capital side of PACE productsHow CleanFund interacts with green banks at the state levelForecasting the future of energy efficiency in the built environmentInnovative approaches to addressing emissions in the spaceThe challenges of working in commercial real estateHow to engage with CleanFund and learn more about PACE at CleanFun.comCleanFund's plans for expandingGet connected: Cody Simms Twitter / LinkedInCleanFundMCJ Podcast / Collective*You can also reach us via email at [email protected], where we encourage you to share your feedback on episodes and suggestions for future topics or guests.Episode recorded on February 24, 2023.

#121 How Decarbonizing Will Affect Affect Everyone of Us Certainly by now we are all very familiar with the subject of climate change. We hear about it everyday. We witness extreme weather events on a regular basis. We see the devastation and loss of life and property.I think we can all agree that climate change is by far the most profound challenge of our time. It affects us as individuals, it affects businesses, and it affects governments around the globe. No one has been spared of the effects of climate change.But there is away to halt this process and prevent a true global disaster. It all depends on one concept: decarbonization. But what exactly does that mean and how will it affect our daily lives. And that is the focus of E121, how decarbonizing will affect everyone of us.Always remember to live sustainably because this is how we build a better future. Patrick

How to grow a record breaking wheat crop Since the Yield Enhancement Network (YEN) was established by ADAS 10 years ago, it has recorded multiple crop world records, droughts, floods and a fertiliser crisis. But all of these events have helped the network to gather important information on how growers can maximise crop production on their land.In this episode of Crop it Like it’s Hot, ADAS’ Dr Sarah Kendall discusses key learnings from more than 5,000 crop yields that have been recorded, and how detailed crop post-mortems, benchmarking and reporting has seen some farmers exceed the yield potential of their land.Two top yielding farmers, David Passmore, who won gold for his OSR crop, and Tim Lamyman, who broke both the wheat and barley world record last harvest, tell all about their crop management programmes and they achieved the top yields they did in 2022.Speakers:Dr Sarah Kendall – ADAS crop physiologistTim Lamyman – Lincolnshire farmer and world record holderDavid Passmore – Oxfordshire farmer and YEN winner

How do the poor fight climate change? Lessons from an informal settlement Around the world, the impact of climate change – rising temperatures, shifting patterns of rainfall, more frequent and intense extreme weather, and rising sea levels – will affect all types of infrastructure. Ensuring the climate change resilience of infrastructure will help to protect lives and livelihoods. The government is taking numerous measures like heat action plans to tackle impacts of heat waves but are they inclusive?
In this episode, Sneha Richhariya reports on how residents of informal settlements in Delhi are tackling heat waves. We explore how heat waves hit one section of the society more severely, we track who are the most vulnerable and how it impacts the way they live and work and in what ways they seek relief. We answer why does India need to climate-proof its infrastructure? We also look into the human and economic toll of climate related damage due to poorly built infrastructure and finally at the need for accurate climate data. See sunoindia.in/privacy-policy for privacy information.
Startup Series: ByFusion Today's guest is Heidi Kujawa, founder and CEO at ByFusion. ByFusion is solving the global plastic waste crisis by turning unrecyclable plastics into building materials.Plastics are lightweight, durable, strong, low-cost, and built to last. Those qualities are fantastic in reducing the cost and weight of shipping and packaging items. And those qualities are equally terrible when it comes to waste. Not to mention, virgin plastics come from fossil fuels and are providing an increasing amount of the value of a barrel of oil. ByFusion is looking to take advantage of plastic's positives while obviating its negatives by turning waste plastic into durable building blocks.Heidi and Cody have a great conversation about her background, the different types of plastics, and what's recyclable and what's not (side note: we can all probably do better when it comes to recycling). They also talk about how ByFusion works with municipalities and waste management companies to source materials, what the company’s ByBlocks look like, who is building with ByFusion and what they are building, the evolution of plastic waste credits (which are similar to carbon credits) and how Heidi is financing the company and its product development. This is a jam-packed episode and we hope you enjoy it! In this episode, we cover: [2:09] Heidi's background and how it fed her experience building ByFusion [4:31] How she decided to focus on plastic waste[6:58] An overview of ByFusion and the company's ByBlock product [9:44] Recyclable vs non-recyclable plastics [13:34] Different use cases for ByFusion's construction materials [17:14] ByFusion's municipalities customers, unit economics, and who's paying [21:36] The company's business model [23:51] The plastic diversion/credit market [25:43] ByFusion's upcoming projects [28:34] State and country-wide policies around plastic and their implications [30:50] The company's financing to date [34:37] Where ByFusion needs help todayGet connected: Cody Simms Twitter / LinkedInHeidi Kujawa / ByFusionMCJ Podcast / Collective*You can also reach us via email at [email protected], where we encourage you to share your feedback on episodes and suggestions for future topics or guests.Episode recorded on January 18, 2023
Robert Piconi, Energy Vault Today's guest is Robert Piconi, CEO and co-founder at Energy Vault, which develops and deploys utility-scale energy storage solutions. The company's offerings include proprietary gravity, battery, and green hydrogen energy storage hardware technologies supported by a technology-agnostic energy management system software layer. They can deliver short- and long-duration energy storage with the goal of helping carbon-free energy be as cost-effective as possible at all times of the day and night. Robert and Cody have a great conversation about why energy storage matters, the different types of energy storage today, and some unique insights from Bill Gross at Idealab that led to the earliest version of Energy Vault. They talk about the rapid iterations Energy Vault has done on its gravity storage model, and how they've raised capital. Energy Vault went public via SPAC one year and one day before Rob and Cody had this conversation. It's incredible to see such an infrastructure-heavy company grow and iterate so quickly.

Startup Series: Scythe Today's guest on the My Climate Journey Startup Series is Jack Morrison, Co-founder and CEO at Scythe. Scythe recently announced a $42M Series B round of financing led by Energy Impact Partners to grow and scale their product line of autonomous electric commercial lawnmowers. When discussing the need to electrify everything, we tend to focus on electric vehicles and home efficiency. But over the next 5-10 years most of us will be surprised by just how many things in our daily lives will move from loud, smelly, gasoline-powered engines to quiet, odorless electric motors. This podcast has featured electric solutions for pleasure craft boating, motorcycles, passenger buses, semi trucks, and even cargo shipping. And in most cases, the business models of the electric versions of these things are innovative in some way or another too.The Scythe team is pioneering a new usage-based model for their mowers and the company believes it offers a more sustainable way for landscaping companies to manage their cashflows and help their employees get the job done. In this episode, we cover: [2:00] Jack's background in programming and robots [4:00] His transition from 3D scanning to landscaping [6:48] Climate impact of the landscaping business and Scythe's role in helping curb the emissions footprint[11:03] Scythe's M.52 mower product [13:17] Why Scythe chose an electric and autonomous solution [18:16] The safety side of the company's tech[22:36] Impacts on landscapers' day to day [27:45] Technology barriers for incumbent mowing companies [30:18] Scythe's early traction, progress to date, and market shareGet connected: Cody Simms Twitter / LinkedInJack Morrison / ScytheMCJ Podcast / Collective*You can also reach us via email at [email protected], where we encourage you to share your feedback on episodes and suggestions for future topics or guests.Episode recorded on March 7, 2023.

#120 Why Do We Not Use More Renewable Energy? The cost of solar energy has declined by more than 80% over the last 15 years. This is the very reason that my entire homestead has operated solely on solar energy for the last 6 years. Based on what my friends pay for electricity on a monthly basis, my solar electric system paid for itself in about 2 1/2 years. The amount of solar energy that hits the planet Earth in one day is enough the replace all the coal, natural gas, and oil that the entire planet uses in one year. Obviously we have the ability to power the entire world off of renewables but why is that not being done?  And that is the focus of this episode. Why do we not use more renewable energy?Always remember to live sustainably because this is how we build a better future. Patrick

Earth911 Podcast: Author Esha Chhabra on the Work of Restoring Our World Meet Journalist Esha Chhabra, who spent a decade exploring the world for examples of social ventures, businesses that blend profitability with creating equitable human outcomes for The New York Times, The Guardian, The Washington Post, and other publications. In her new book, Working To Restore: Harnessing the Power of Regenerative Business to Heal the World, she describes her journeys and the entrepreneurs and activists people she met in the US, India, Africa, and the fjords of Scandinavia. She describes social and environmental innovations transforming coffee, shoemaking, healthcare, energy, and hospitality companies that are becoming familiar to Earth911 readers. But for many, the reflective, environmentally responsible thinking in Working To Restore may be a revelation.Esha explores additional dimensions of two terms that dominate green business discussion, “regenerative” and “restorative,” weaving the environmental benefits with social impacts that can help low-income people access resources sustainably. She discusses the key role the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals play in setting new social priorities and establishing how we measure the value business creates in society. Working to Restore is available from Amazon, Powell's Books, and local bookstores. You can follow Esha's journalistic work at https://eshachhabra.contently.com/ and https://www.eshachhabra.com/
Earth911 Podcast: Clean Earth Rovers CEO Michael Arens on Cleaning Waterways and Bays Some of the dirtiest, plastic polluted waters lie at the heart of major cities, in ports, marinas and where wastewater enters the environment. They are hard to keep clean because of constant activity that adds new waste to waterways. The work is wet, cold and dirty, which makes port and marina cleanups an ideal job for robots. Meet Michael Arens, cofounder and CEO of Clean Earth Rovers, a Cincinnati, Ohio-based startup that makes two robotic devices for cleaning and monitoring coastal waters. Media attention is focused on the seven garbage patch gyres in our oceans, but ocean plastic and algal blooms can be stopped close to shore with robotics technology and an investment in preventing pollution, cleaning up oil and nitrogen from farmland and industry. Michael explains the devices, the Rover that can collect up to 100 lbs of waste during an 8-hour shift and the DataPod, a water monitoring buoy that sends data to a mobile app, as well as how the company started, its WeFunder campaign, and where the first orders for Rovers and DataPods will be deployed.

Earth911 Podcast: Discover How The XX Edge Can Accelerate Sustainability & Equity Women bring the skills, perspectives, and emotional intelligence necessary to achieving the green transition, addressing food shortages, and equitable financing. Women are 49.7% of the world’s population, but only 1.9% of venture capital investments in 2022 were placed with women-led startups. Patience Marine-Ball and Ruth Shaber, coauthors of The XX Edge: Unlocking higher returns and lower risk, join Mitch Ratcliffe to discuss the power and impact of women in business and other leadership roles. The book shares stories of corporate, startup, nonprofit and many other organizational innovations and improvements led by women, and they make the case that those of us with two X chromosomes bring essential skills that are in short supply in the face of climate change, social disruption, and 20th Century business strategies that are too exhausted to thrive in the 21st Century. There has been progress in bringing women into leadership across society, but it is slow work. Today, 42% of U.S. businesses are owned by women and 19% of startups have at least one female founder. And women are making the educational investments to lead. According to the National Center for Educational Statistics, in 2018-19 women earned 57.9% of bachelors degrees,. 63.9% of masters degrees, and 56.4% of doctoral degrees. Patience and Ruth explain several resources to keep in mind as you shop, invest, and vote to create the world your want, including As You Sow, a nonprofit shareholder activist organization, Ethos ESG, a values-based tool for filtering investment options, as well as Patience’s work at the Women of the World Endowment and Ruth’s at the Tara Health Foundation.

Patrick Fulton on the 2011 Tōhoku Earthquake In 2011, a massive earthquake struck off the eastern coast of Japan. The destructive power of the earthquake was amplified by a giant tsunami that swept ashore, killing over 15,000 people. A major cause of the tsunami was the 50-m slip along the plate boundary fault between the subducting Pacific plate and the overriding North American plate. Patrick Fulton and his team set out to find out why there was so much movement along the fault by installing a temperature observatory in a borehole drilled right through the fault zone.

Patrick Fulton uses observation, quantitative analysis, and numerical modeling to study heat and fluid in fault zones. He applies his research to the physics of earthquakes, tectonic processes, and the transport of subsurface heat and fluids. In the podcast, he describes how he and his team installed a borehole temperature observatory below 7 km of ocean. The observatory detected the remnants of frictional heating generated by the slip that caused the 2011 Tōhoku Earthquake and the devastating tsunami that led to the Fukushima nuclear disaster.
Patrick Fulton is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Cornell University.

#118 The Pros and Cons of Electric Vehicles. As our world slowly transitions to things more renewable. several states and national governments are moving to either ban to phase out gasoline powered vehicles. As with anything else, there are advantages and disadvantages.  This episode is the first in a series to discussing various topics related to our transition to a greener lifestyle. In this episode I discussed whether or not electric vehicles are our salvation or is the manufacture and use just the next oil. Always remember to live sustainably because this is how we build a better future.
#119 The Challenges of Transitioning to a Green Economy It is one thing to say that we need to transition to a green economy and quite another to actually make it happen. While it seems as if everyone on the planet knows it needs to happen why is more not being done? Why is everyone still sitting on their hands.  We also know that we can no longer have an economic system focused on capital accumulation because this is not sustainable and it allows corporate profits to prevail over the well being of people and the environment. While there are obvious benefits to a transition to a green economy, there are also challenges. And that is the focus of episode 119, the challenges of  transitioning to a green economy. Always remember to live sustainably because this is how we build a better future. Patrick

World Water Day 2023 with Autumn Peltier When Autumn Peltier was eight, she learned the tap water on a neighbouring reserve wasn’t safe to drink, or even to use for hand-washing. That injustice triggered her decade-long advocacy campaign for safe drinking water. She made headlines as a 12 year-old, admonishing Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at an Assembly of First Nations event for the choices his government had made for her people.    In this bonus episode for World Water Day 2023, Peltier and Jay discuss the way her life shifted, as she started campaigning for clean water. Peltier also shares what it was like to shoot her documentary The Water Walker, and lets us in on her plans for the future now that she’s finished high school.    On a day devoted to improving the way we manage, consume, and use water, the message is ‘Be The Change’ – something Peltier takes to heart. Two billion people still live without clean water, and the United Nations says member countries have fallen behind on their goal to bring everyone safe water and sanitation by the year 2030.   “The message is so much more powerful and so much more stronger when it's coming from a young person,” said Peltier, the chief water commissioner for the Anishinabek Nation. “That's when you know something is wrong, and something has to be done.”
In this episode,” id=”99fdV7cj9SK” vid=”99fdV7cj9SK” id-for-player=”99fdV7cj9SK” link=”/listen/why-uniform-food-consumption-patterns-might-threaten-food-security-99fdV7cj9SK/” is-authorized=”false” custom-styles=”margin: 0 24px 24px 0;”>
Why uniform food consumption patterns might threaten food security? We live in a world of food abundance, yet there is widespread food insecurity. The government policies focus on the production side to increase the physical availability of food. However, the patterns of household consumption and the drivers behind them have been poorly understood. 
In this episode, host Sneha Richhariya speaks to “India’s Rice Warrior”, Dr. Debal Deb, a renowned scientist, ecologist and conservationist, on why we need to protect crop diversity and how monoculture in agriculture can affect India’s food security.See sunoindia.in/privacy-policy for privacy information.

Martin Wainstein, OpenEarth Foundation Today's guest is Martin Wainstein, Founder and Executive Director of OpenEarth Foundation, a California-based nonprofit that creates and supports the deployment of open-source software at the intergovernmental level to further climate understanding and action.When we think of blockchain, our brains are mostly wired to think of cryptocurrencies and for-profit schemes. OpenEarth Foundation, however, is applying blockchain principles to United Nations-scale carbon accounting efforts to aid in the understanding of and deployment of software that can support an open and accountable data layer for critical carbon accounting. As carbon offsets are retired, as renewable energy credits are traded, and as compliance and voluntary carbon markets grow in prominence, how do we ensure that these systems can understand each other across borders, governments, and methodologies?After all, a ton of CO2 should be a ton of CO2, and yet orchestrating agreement and dialogue across major stakeholders including governments, markets, and corporations, is never an easy task. Martin and Cody have a great conversation about his journey into the climate space and the origins of OpenEarth Foundation, which was inspired in part by his time at Yale Open Lab and his work on digital currencies at MIT Media Lab. We also cover the state of carbon accounting at the nation-state level today, the innovative ways that OpenEarth Foundation has raised money to date, and some of the big ideas that they're thinking about for the future. In this episode, we cover: [3:01] Martin's climate journey [9:38] An overview of the OpenEarth Foundation[14:25] Leveraging technology for the common good [17:32] Carbon accounting and where the data comes from today [24:10] Openclimate.network and other digital tools [29:48] Transparency challenges on the national and subnational levels[34:25] How OpenEarth is helping large global entities with consensus building [40:44] OpenEarth's initial funding via NFTs and plans moving forward [49:38] Some of OpenEarth's current projects [55:07] Where OpenEarth needs helpGet connected: Cody Simms Twitter / LinkedInMartin Wainstein / OpenEarth FoundationMCJ Podcast / Collective*You can also reach us via email at [email protected], where we encourage you to share your feedback on episodes and suggestions for future topics or guests.Episode recorded on February 2, 2023.

Startup Series: Nth Cycle Today's guest is Megan O'Connor, CEO and Co-Founder of Nth Cycle. Nth Cycle uses a metals processing technology that allows battery manufacturers to convert lower-grade critical metals into EV-battery grade on-site. The company’s approach obviates large portions of cumbersome and dirty metal supply chains for crucial EV battery metals like nickel. Megan claims that Nth Cycle's technology can be applied to existing batteries just as it can be to newly mined ore, thus accelerating circularity for the lithium-ion battery and battery recycling.One significant component of the Inflation Reduction Act is the formalization of US EV tax credits, and a qualification requirement that automakers must source at least 40% of their EV battery components – by value – in the United States or countries with which the US has a free trade agreement starting this year, with escalation to 100% by 2029.With this change in the backdrop, Megan and Cody have a great conversation about the state of EV battery metal supply chains and battery recycling today, how Megan started working on this problem in the first place, how Nth Cycle works, and what her plans are for the company. We have focused quite a bit recently on EV batteries and the underlying metals that power them on the podcast.

Earth911 Podcast: Author John Perlin Explores the Role of Trees in the Rise & Fate of Civilization Let’s venture into the history of trees, wood, and the axe. Everywhere humans have gone they’ve mowed trees down to make tools, homes, fires, bridges, buildings, even railroad tracks — yes, the first railroads often ran on wooden rails, as author John Perlin explains in a new edition of his classic book, A Forest Journey: The Role of Trees in the Fate of Civilization. First published in 1989, A Forest Journey has been rereleased in an expanded, beautifully illustrated edition by Patagonia. And, yes, there is an environmental impact disclosure on the copyright page of the book.John is also the author of Let It Shine: The 6000-Year Story of Solar Energy and other histories of solar technology. His writing is consistently surprising and illuminating. For example, A Forest Journey challenges many current assumptions about the advantages of peoples and nations.It is a challenge to the conclusions in Jared Diamond’s influential history, Guns, Germs, and Steel. John makes a clear case that Northern Europe achieved global dominance largely on the basis of its access to vast forests that, in other parts of the world, had been chopped down during antiquity. The largely barren Mediterranean basin, for example, was heavily forested before humans entered the region. A Forest Journey is available now from Amazon and Powell's Books, as well as local bookstores. You can learn more about John Perlin at https://john-perlin.com/

Startup Series: Mill Today's guest is Harry Tannenbaum, Co-founder and President at Mill. Mill developed a household bin that not only collects uneaten food but also shrinks and deodorizes it. The company’s solution aims to keep food in the system and prevent it from ending up in landfills or waste systems, which would otherwise generate significant emissions. Mill recently exited stealth and we're proud to be multi-time backers of the company through our MCJ Collective venture funds alongside other leading climate tech funds such as Breakthrough Energy Ventures, Lower Carbon Capital, Prelude Ventures, Energy Impact Partners, and John Doerr. In this episode, Cody and Harry delve into the issue of food waste and what inspired him to tackle it. They discuss the qualities of a successful consumer product and how Harry and his co-founder, Matt Rogers, applied the lessons they learned at Nest to their work at Mill. Additionally, they examine Mill's product and logistics framework, and the intersection between consumer behavior change and systems change. They also explore the network effect that Mill hopes to create between the two. Finally, the conversation covers the pros and cons of building a company in stealth, as Mill did during the product development process.In this episode, we cover: [2:42] An overview of the food waste problem[6:04] The life cycle of food waste and the role of city municipalities[11:15] Harry's journey and experience with Nest[14:13] How he met his co-founder and decided to focus on waste[20:00] The genesis for Mill's hardware solution and how it evolved[25:28] Critical team members and how the company's final produce came to be[29:47] Mill as a systems change company[30:35] An overview of the Mill bin and membership experience[37:07] Where chickens fit in[45:19] The theoretical debate of systems change vs. personal responsibility[54:00] The company's partnership with the city of Tacoma, Washington[57:27] Where the company is looking to hire talent[59:06] Pros and cons of building in stealthGet connected: Cody Simms Twitter / LinkedInHarry Tannenbaum / MillMCJ Podcast / Collective*You can also reach us via email at [email protected], where we encourage you to share your feedback on episodes and suggestions for future topics or guests.Episode recorded on February 10, 2023.
