Biodiversity is something that clearly affects all species. Everything is connected to each other regardless of whether or not it is on a large or small scale. Sometimes the way we garden can actually improve our landscape and at times, can be disastrous. Such is the case with the introduction of invasive species such as Kudzu, Purple loosestrife, etc. Nevertheless, there are choices we can make that can positively impact our landscape according to the plants we select and what we introduce into the landscape. Our choices not only affect our view of the land but can also impact animals, insects and microorganisms that are dependent upon the role of such plants. In essence, human beings have the power to sustain life or destroy it because of these choices. In this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, host, June Stoyer talks to Dr. Douglas Tallamy about his best-selling book, Bringing Nature Home which explores the impact of our choices and what we can do to sustain wildlife in our own back yard!

Their mission: To eliminate plastic pollution through research education and direct action.
The Clean Oceans Project (TCOP) is a 501c3 marine environmental non-profit organization in Santa Cruz, California with a vision of an ocean free of plastic pollution. Our scientific response to plastic accumulation in the oceans locates plastic debris concentrations, removes it from the environment with minimal impact and processes it into fuel to run the operation. TCOP programs begin with education and training to create efficient and effective teams for future expeditions to document and remove plastic from remote environments.

Environmental activism on social media , without a doubt, works! But not unless the same energy and commitment to awareness, education and speaking to power is transferred to the general population by public demonstrations will these environmental messages be heard . Today we have the pleasure and honor of speaking with John G. Heim - SWFLCleanWaterMovement based in Ft.Myers Beach , Florida. John has been an avid environmental activist for most of his life ; John's dedication and level of energy displayed in the fight for clean water in Florida is phenomenal.
John Heim went to Congress in 2015 to talk about the devastating effects on the environment by the Lake Okeechobee discharges . John was also recognized in 2014 by the United States Great American River Association as a River Champion. He is an Economic Tourism Activist with the Michael DeCarlo Foundation ~ an arts summer camp for children , called The River Kids, this program teaches young people to care for their environment and health of their rivers. John's mantra is Demonstrate to Educate. Actively working for clean water as a basic human right is something John Heim has been working on since he was nineteen years old when he met his mentor and wonderful lifetime friend, Jo Finney; together they formed the SWFLCleanWaterMovement.
The only radicals out there are those who believe these myriad human movements can be kept separated. Intersectionality is Reality. Life Artist Jimmy Betts is one such radical, living in greater simplicity and fighting for ecological justice on a planetary scale. He also teaches and learns self- and community-resiliency practices including action mobilization and confronting injustices of all forms.

Join us for another lifechanging show! First Dave interviews senior staff reporter Andy Revkin from The New York Times about world overpopulation, a critical topic that many people seem reluctant to address. Revkin is the lead blogger for The New York Times' environmental blog Dot Earth. Then Dave speaks with Lee Fulkerson, the writer/director of Forks Over Knives, the new documentary everyone in our circles seems to be talking about. Forks Over Knives clarifies the undeniable relationship between nutrition and health, and shows the tremendous potential of abandoning the traditional Western diet for plant-based whole foods. From the film: "Diet is so much more important than anybody ever thought." "To me, the answer [to America's unnecessary health crises] is so simple it's criminal: it's people starting to take responsibility for their health and eating more plant-based foods." On a similar topic, Dave interviews Ivy and Dr. Andy Larson, co-authors of The Gold Coast Cure: the 5-Week Health and Body Makeover, A Lifestyle Plan to Shed Pounds, Gain Health and Reverse 10 Diseases. Ivy Larson has multiple sclerosis and has treated it effectively by eating foods that reduce inflammation. Ivy and her husband Andy share with Dave about their Clean Cuisine Diet.
