HD BV 16-08 HD - Caring for the Earth

Nature doesn't create trash . . . . . . . . . everything that nature produces is returned to the Earth through organic waste. In comparison, in the United States, 60-million water bottles are thrown away each day. Lined up end to end, that would be enough to go to the moon in a month. Much of the plastic produced ends up in the world's oceans so that by the year 2050, there will be as much plastic in the oceans as fish.
- David Radcliff, New Community Project

Caring for this amazing but endangered planet is the challenge of our lifetime. Every one of earth's systems is in trouble: the climate continues to warm, half of all the earth's wetlands are gone, extinctions are epidemic, only half of tropical forests remain. The seas are in jeopardy due to threats from many causes including acidification, runoff from fertilizers and pesticides, plastics, etc.

"Brethren Voices" host, Brent Carlson interviews David Radcliff of the New Community Project regarding the ways that we can be part of the solution rather than part of the ongoing problem. Radcliff states, " As Americans we require 200 pounds of stuff from the earth/day to maintain our lifestyles - for household consumption as well as everything we need - for roads, food production, buildings, bridges, commerce, etc."

"The Earth is in a real pickle. It needs some 'Champions' who will make a difference to this planet."
