  1. My mother will love this! Getting it to her to show her will be a challenge, she is 400 miles away living with dementia, she is not computer active, but I am and when I can travel there I will sit and watch this with her. Many thanks. :)

  2. This is so wonderful! I’ve always thought there was more good news out there than bad, but try and find a newspaper called “The Good News”. I hope we see more of this. Keep spreading the productive information! Thank you!!

  3. Interesting, but some misinformation, in my opinion.

    The first, that stopping eating meat will solve the world’s food problems. He did add to his statement afterwards as the problem being feeding grains and such to meat-producing animals. But there is a big difference between “meat” being the problem, and growing immense amounts of grains and soy monocrops and feeding those to animals. Animals that aren’t evolved to eat that diet anyways.

    Second, his comment about there being no lack of water is misleading. We are running out of potable water supplies, through waste, climate changes, and industrial contamination.

    Added on top of that is water privatization. Huge global corporations only are getting into water as an asset because it’s very valuable. Which means, increasing in demand – not a “non-issue”. One very eye-opening documentary on this subject is Blue Gold: World Water Wars.

    If you haven’t watched it, please do!
