Back in April of 2009, I collaborated with Lawrence Martin of to film the interviews I conducted at the Tulane Environmental Law Summit. Here are 2 out of a about 8 interviews that were done.

In this first interview, I’m speaking with Gowri Koneswaran (USHS ~ U.S. Humane Society) at Tulane Environmental Law Summit April 2009. Gowri was one of the speakers at the 2009 TELS discussing the “Low Carbon Footprint Diet” along with Mike Tidwell (interviewed separately). The panel topic mainly discussed how a Vegan/Plant-based diet will improve the issues with Climate Change and the Environment as a whole.

This second interview is with Russell Jim of the Yakama Nation located in the state of Washington. He was one of the speakers as well. However, during another one of the open panels, he got up during Q&A to state something I felt quite profound for the environmental crowd to ponder. I discussed this, along with gathering more of his wisdom about what we all must do to turn things around for the better.

I hope you thoroughly enjoy. Please see the PSA I did for Tulane Environmental Law Clinic (listed under their own page on this Blog) for more about what TELC does to assist people in the community regarding their environmental rights on a regular basis.

Wishing you only and all of the best.

Peace & Love,
