Finding actual, effective solutions for environmental problems such as oil spills and getting them implemented requires the ability to get past the two biggest barriers – polarization of the subject for purposes of political and financial gain, and false information – but Barbara and The Lawrence Anthony Earth Organization are making real progress in that direction where others have only tried and failed. Well-spoken and very knowledgeable, Barbara provides information that you probably won’t hear anywhere else about taking care of the ‘house’ we all share (Earth) and will have you saying, “finally, someone who makes sense”. Today you’ll hear about:
- How Lawrence Anthony’s love for animals led to him saving the Baghdad zoo during the Iraq War and later taming a herd of wild elephants before they had to be put down.
- How the EPA’s approved treatment for the BP oil spill created a more toxic problem than the spill
- How Barbara and others got a big oil company to take responsibility for a Nigerian oil spill, using a solution that got better and faster results than anyone could have imagined
- The at-sea accredited high school where teenagers can get fulfill their school requirements while learning to sail and gaining an understanding of how to be responsible for the environment.
- What people can do who want to improve and protect the environment that is effective and isn’t just a political or money-making ploy
