Roz Savage, British ocean rower and environmental campaigner, talks about plastics in our oceans, plastic pollution being called a "man-made global catastrophe" in the context of her first-hand experience with the scale of the problem as she rowed, solo, from San Francisco to Hawaii on the first stage of her Pacific Ocean crossing. Meeting up with the two scientists on the Junk craft, they shared dinner and their research with Roz several hundred miles east of Hawaii. Bottom line is we need to use less of it. Each one of us can significantly reduce our use of plastic and make a positive difference in the world. More information about Roz at www.rozsavage.com. She was interviewed by Ruth Ann Barrett of EarthSayers.tv, voices of sustainability. Published on Jan 28, 2014
For more than a decade activist performance artist Bill Talen a.k.a. Reverend Billy, along with his Church of Stop Shopping, has preached fiery sermons against recreational consumerism -- and more recently, against climate disaster. In September, Rev. Billy was arrested after staging a 15-minute musical protest at a JPMorgan Chase Bank in Manhattan to highlight the bank's environmental record and the extinction of a Central American golden toad. He now faces a year in prison for misdemeanor charges of riot in the second degree, menacing in the third degree, unlawful assembly and two counts of disorderly conduct. Despite this, he and The Stop Shopping Choir are performing in New York City every Sunday through December 22. Rev. Billy is also featured in the film "What Would Jesus Buy?" and in the book of the same name.

Snippet from longer October 2013 interview of author Wendell Berry by Bill Moyers. Poet and writer Wendell Barry, called the "prophet of responsibility by Bill McKibben," and a "passionate advocate for the Earth by Bill Moyers, addresses leadership this way:
"Leadership from the bottom, and I 'm convinced perfectly that it's happening and that leadership consists of people who simply see something that needs to be done and they start doing it. We don't have the right to ask whether we are going to succeed or not, the only question we have a right to ask is, "What's the Right Thing to do?"
Activists Marshall Ganz, Rachel Laforest and Madeline Janis describe how organized people can successfully fight organized money to deliver social change. Marshall Ganz notes the difference between a movement (about meaning and what is good) and a special interest, how the powerful don't always win, the importance of strategy/structure and narrative and many other important aspects of activisim. He is associated with the Leading Change Network.
