The Youth Activists Stepping Up for Climate Change

Millions of people are already suffering from the catastrophic effects of extreme disasters exacerbated by climate change – from prolonged drought in sub-Saharan Africa to devastating tropical storms sweeping across Southeast Asia, the Caribbean and the Pacific. While we largely understand climate change through the impacts it will have on our natural world, it is the devastation that it is causing and will continue to cause for humanity that makes it an urgent human rights issue. It will compound and magnify existing inequalities. And its effects will continue to grow and worsen over time, creating ruin for current and future generations. This is why the failure of governments to act on climate change in the face of overwhelming scientific evidence may well be the biggest inter-generational human rights violation in history. Future generations will experience the worsening effects unless action is taken now by governments. However, children and young people are already suffering due to their specific metabolism, physiology and developmental needs. This means, for example, that the forced displacement experienced by communities impacting a whole range of rights – from water, sanitation and food to adequate housing, health, education and development – is likely to be particularly harmful to children.

The Crystal Reef: How Climate Change Is Affecting Our Oceans | 360 | TIME

This 360 video shows how climate change is affecting the world’s reefs and oceans. Subscribe to TIME ►► http://po.st/SubscribeTIME Half of the world’s coral reefs have died in the last 30 years. New research in the journal Nature shows that even if people succeed in protecting reefs from pollution and overfishing, global warming remains a deadly threat. In The Crystal Reef, viewers meet marine scientist Dr. Fio Micheli and see the effects of climate change. With Micheli, viewers explore a rocky reef off the coast of Italy to learn about ocean acidification and the toll that human-produced carbon dioxide is taking on the reef. The Crystal Reef was produced by Cody Karutz. He worked with Stanford University’s Virtual Human Interaction Lab (VHIL) to create the experience. The Crystal Reef is now offered on Blue Trot and LIFE VR.

SFA Podcast: Bob Quinn; How truly organic farming can strengthen rural communities & the environment

Bob Quinn is an organic regenerative farmer from Big Sandy, Montana. He speaks with us about how our current mass agricultural model is not working & the benefits of returning to a nature based method of farming; for creating profits for farmers, offering a key to climate change, & preventing chronic disease in our population. This conversation is for farmers who need the entry points to transition to organic, and for all of you who enjoy EATING FOOD! Our food and how it is grown affects everything about our body and environment. This conversation gives a little "behind the scenes" look into what goes into that food, the people growing it, and what is at stake if we don't stand up for it. This summer, a bill was introduced in the House with bipartisan support. The bill is called the "Growing Climate Solutions Act" and it will push the U.S. Department of Agriculture to develop programs for farmers and foresters to sequester carbon into their soils, and put money in their pockets for doing so. Stories for Action loves stories about collaboration and about healthy soils, so we see the potential for a positive start with this bill. This is the first of two episodes in which we will be looking at stories around this bill. In our next episode we will speak with the Senior Government Relations Representative from the National Farmer's Union.  More on Bob Quinn:IG: @bobquinnorganicfarmer https://www.bobquinnorganicfarmer.com Stories for Action’s mission is to share the human connection around a thriving environment.

SFA Podcast: Growing Climate Solutions: What It Means for Farmers

Between effects of climate change, costs of inputs and production, and market hits, it is difficult for farmers to make gains outside of government subsidies. But what if farmers could help to mitigate climate change, increase the resiliency of the land, and put money in their pockets while doing so? In June 2020, a climate related bill was proposed...with strong bipartisan support in both the House and Senate. The Growing Climate Solutions Act would create a USDA program to encourage farmers, ranchers, and foresters to become an active part of the carbon market. It would encourage practices that create healthier soil, allowing more carbon to be captured in the ground, and paying out money from the carbon market to the farmer. In this episode we speak with Jenny Hopkinson, Senior Government Relations Representative for the National Farmer's Union. Jenny tells us about the variety of solutions that farmers can lead the way on, and why it is important for their input to help shape this legislation. Check out the full episode by subscribing to the Stories for Action podcast on Apple iTunes, Spotify, Podbean, or Google Podcasts.

Peace River Rising: The link between violence against Indigenous women and violence against the land

Helen Knott, a Dane-Zaa/Nehiyaw social worker, poet and activist, explores the connection between violence against Indigenous women and violence against the land. Helen takes us through the dramatic changes she’s witnessed in her home territory. Woodlands she explored as a child have disappeared to make way for pipelines and housing developments to accommodate the influx of transient workers. Contamination from industrial endeavors has turned traditional activities — like berry picking — into potential hazards. Helen explores the dangers of these industrial expansions, bringing to light the fact that Fort St. John, now primarily an oil and gas town, has a per capita crime rate that is nearly double that of Vancouver. On the streets of Fort St. John, Helen and a fellow lifetime resident reflect on the overwhelming ratio of men to women in their city: what was once a city of familiar faces is now overrun with strangers who have minimal personal attachment to the area. Helen shares personal stories about the violence she’s encountered and her beliefs about how important it is to give voice to these experiences. She leaves us with a deeper perspective into why she does the work she does — and her hopes for a new world.
