Ocean Warming by Matt Brown
Static Preview

Matt decided to get a Geoscience single-subject teaching credential at UC Irvine, and after several years of teaching Marine Science (chemistry, biology, ecology, and other related topic concerning the world’s oceans) and ROP Environmental Horticulture (career technical education in using plants for beauty, shelter, and food) at Northwood High School (Irvine, CA), he became extremely interested in the connection between the food we eat and the negative impacts of modern agriculture on the health of the oceans (acidification, ocean warming, dead zones, etc.), so he telephoned his old Peace Corps friend Nathan.

In 1999, Matt and Bobbie Brown met Nathan McFall in a small village, Kuma-Dunyo, in Togo, West Africa. They worked with farmers, non- government organizations, and students introducing and implementing environmental awareness and education programs, soil conservation techniques, and animal husbandry.

 

In the summer of 2010, the Brown family decided to move to Oregon! They settled in Milwaukie (SE Portland, Oregon) and soon thereafter, with Nathan,  started the non-profit, Food|Waves.

Matt was interviewed by Ruth Ann Barrett of EarthSayers.tv, July 23, 2011 in Portland, Oregon.

Anna and Frances Moore Lappe with Raj Patel

Anna Lappé, Author, Diet for a Hot Planet
Frances Moore Lappé, Author, Diet for a Small Planet
Raj Patel, Activist, Author, Stuffed and Starved, The Value of Nothing - Moderator

Nearly 40 years ago, before daughter Anna was a twinkle in her eye, Frances Moore Lappé published Diet for a Small Planet. Today, the pair still stand firmly behind this book which started as a one-page handout and would become the foundation of Annas own life's work stressing that to understand world politics, we need first to understand food. Anna Lappé, one of Time's "Eco- Who's Who," argues that there's an unsettling connection between food production and global warming in her latest, Diet for a Hot Planet. The mother and daughter have traveled far and wide and conclude that "hunger is not caused by a scarcity of food but by a scarcity of democracy." They encourage us to recognize food as a powerful starting point for solving one of our planet's biggest problems.
