Daniel Katz: Saving Rainforests to Save the World

March 2, 2022

This episode with Daniel Katz of the Rainforest Alliance is the first in a two part environmental series on thinking globally and acting locally. While you probably know that rainforests around the world are in danger, you may not know that rainforest destruction wreaks havoc on the climate and puts us all in danger. You also may not know that, here in the United States, we as consumers are culpable in aiding and abetting global rainforest destruction. Daniel and Nancy talk about the connection between rainforests and climate, why deforestation is taking place, and ways our personal choices can help save the rainforests to save the world. And if this episode gets you thinking, be sure to check out Part 2 of the series coming up next which will be a deep dive into plant based eating.
