The Living Earth Connection #19 airs today, Sunday, July 31 2016, at 9:30 a.m. WST on kmud.org/ 91.1 and 88.1 FM. In today’s show I focus on the massive expansion of the marijuana industry in Humboldt County, called the Green Rush.  This agricultural and industrial expansion, located in valuable habitat, devastates the environment.  The fragmentation and degradation of habitat by Humboldt’s marijuana industry, has accelerated in recent years.  This ecological devastation is the outer manifestation of a deep spiritual sickness.  In today’s show I perform an intention ceremony to end the Green Rush and steer this region toward Life’s highest possibilities for the land, the wildlife, and the people.  Please tune in.

In the vast outpouring of creativity known as life on earth, animals display more diversity than any other class of organism.  For a celebration of the diversity of the animal kingdom, tune in on Sunday, March 29 at 9:30 a.m. PST to http://www.kmud.org.  We will explore some of the conditions and relationships that promote this diversity, including the special importance of top carnivores in ecosystems.  We will also explore the fundamental need of all animals for sufficient habitat, and ask what island biogeography tells us about habitat size and extinction.  We will also explore the relationship between agriculture and the extinction crisis.
