Environmental Crisis

Earth is in peril. Severe droughts parch some areas while torrential rains flood others; gargantuan wildfires consume whole territories while freakish ice storms crash city grids. These and other environmental stresses are flaming human conflict and inflaming our health and the wellbeing of the animal kingdom. Hosts Ruhani Chhabra and Diya Hituvalli interview environmentalist author, Andrew Michael, about his e-book, Arising Soul Pals: Keep Your Eyes on the Rise, to illustrate the environmental and cultural challenges facing Earth and its inhabitants and to posit a solution to those challenges- raising consciousness. He talks about the assistance his organization, Partnership For Change is doing to support the evacuations in Afghanistan and help young girls in peril in Northern India. Ruhani reads poignant poem that reflect the crises that our planet is enduring and in Teenship, and sheds light on other young people who are making a difference to protect the environment. Finally, she emphasizes that doing the little things like picking up trash and growing your own vegetables will help heal our world. Educate yourself, pay attention to what’s happening, get involved be mindful.
