Vandana Shiva: Food System Transformation and Reversing the Climate Crisis

TheNOFAVT

Nov 13, 2014

On November 2nd, 2014, Dr. Vandana Shiva spoke at Contois Auditorium at Burlington City Hall in support of Vermont’s first in the nation no-strings-attached GMO labeling law.

The law will require labels on genetically engineered foods sold at retail outlets in the state of Vermont starting in July of 2016. The bill was signed into law on May 8, 2014. Unlike labeling laws passed in Maine and Connecticut, Vermont’s law does not require other states to act first before products will be labeled.

The day the bill was signed into law, a consortium of corporate interests including the Grocery Manufacturers Association, the International Dairy Foods Association, and the Snack Food Association announced that they would sue the state to stop the law from going into effect. Initial arguments in the case are expected to start in late 2014 or 2015. For more information please visit www.vtrighttoknowgmos.org

Fueled by Climate Change, California’s Raging Wildfires Are Threatening Vulnerable Commu nities First

Democracy Now! Oct 29, 2019

California is bracing for a day of strong winds as climate change-fueled wildfires continue to burn from Los Angeles to north of the Bay Area. After a chaotic weekend of mass evacuations and blackouts that left millions in the dark, firefighters in Sonoma, California, made headway Monday, containing 15% of the massive Kincade fire that has burned nearly 75,000 acres. But as high winds pick up again today, firefighters still face an uphill battle in combating the at least 10 blazes raging across the state, including the growing Getty fire, which erupted in one of Los Angeles’s most opulent communities Monday. Fires in California are typical this time of year, but the length and severity of the state’s fire season has grown due to climate change. We speak with Leah Stokes, an assistant professor of political science at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and researcher on climate and energy politics. We also speak with Ariel Kelley, the CEO of Corazón Healdsburg, a bilingual family resource center based in Northern Sonoma County.

Governments – Where is your plan? | Extinction Rebellion

Extinction Rebellion Nov 3, 2019

As General Election season begins, and to mark six months since the UK Parliament declared an Environment and Climate Emergency, we are calling for everyone to demand their governments’ plan to address the crisis…
#WhereIsYourPlan

Through voices representing a lifetime, aged 8 to 80, our film demands that leaders around the world act on the climate and ecological emergency, including stopping the destruction of our forests, our oceans and our wildlife, reducing zero carbon emissions as a matter of urgency and investing in a green economy.

Featuring faces from Downton Abbey to Love Island, and including the likes of Ellie Goulding, Daisy Lowe, Jaime Winstone, Chris Packham, Imelda Staunton, Jim Carter and Stephen Frears, the video showcases a series of short clips where voices from every generation, representing a lifetime, make an emotive demand to governments for their plan to address the emergency.
