"We once disposed of our dead in earth-friendly ways—no chemicals, biodegradable containers, dust to dust. But over the last 150 years death care has become a toxic, polluting, and alienating industry in the United States. Today, people are slowly waking up to the possibility of more sustainable and less disaffecting death care, reclaiming old practices in new ways, in a new age." Author of Greening Death , Suzanne Kelly traces the philosophical and historical backstory to this awakening, captures the passionate on-the-ground work of the Green Burial Movement, and explores the obstacles and other challenges getting in the way of more robust mobilization. As the movement lays claim to greener, simpler, and more cost-efficient practices, something even more promising is being offered up—a tangible way of restoring our relationship to nature."

Jack Groh, Director of the NFL Environmental Program
and April Trigg, Founder & President, Eventologie
"It's not so much about how much of the problem do you create; it's about how much of the problem are you willing to take responsibility for" is a quote from Jack Groh. About 15 years ago he launched The Super Bowl environmental program. It has five main initiatives: solid waste management, material reuse, food recovery, sports equipment and book donations, and greenhouse gas reduction. Where are they now and what can we expect in terms of the greening of Super Bowl XLIX? I am excited to find out about all of their incredible accomplishments and challenges during the NFLs journey to becoming more sustainable. Meet April Trigg. She started an event planning company with a focus on creating sustainable events that are both eco-friendly AND economical. If there is a way to green your party AND have everything look elegant and gorgeous, April has it figured out. One quote I love about Eventologie and what they do: “we incorporate greening tactics into every event we produce to ensure we are doing our part to reduce the typically astounding wasteful nature of our industry and making sure the leave behind from our events are ideas and connections and not trash.” I have met April and her enthusiasm is contagious. Lots to share on two of my favorite topics – green parties and events! This show sponsored by Chapman Tucson.

We will briefly review our afternoon presentation and then take a more in-depth look at HLB, the causes and some of the solutions proposed by the industry.
We will also examine some permaculture solutions that have been suggested and explore their efficacy for future generations of the citrus industry and even the back yard citrus movement

Welcome to Your Community Science Class! On today's broadcast we explore the effects of Citrus Greening Disease. As we consider the global blights across nature, we are looking at huanlongbing, which has the potential to devastate citrus trees globally. Part 2 will air at 8pm eastern, hosted by Dimensions of Quantum where we will look at the solutions being proposed for this blight, which includes genetically modifiying all orange trees. There already has, over the past several years, been a large increase in pesticide usage on oranges. This begs the question, are oranges currently safe to consume? Join us as we explore this and many other questions regarding yet another devastating disease affecting the monoculture industry.
