For me, more than anything, Earth Day is a great opportunity to draw attention to the many important issues affecting our environment.
Along with a great team of people we have spent the last week doing "live to tape" interviews on ClimateTV with thought leaders and gamechangers and we're going to run all of these interviews back-to-back all day long.
Here's a quick video we did explaining what's all happening:
Guests for this all-day Earth Day event include:
Dr. Andrew Weaver, a climatologist at the University of Victoria and author of Keeping our Cool: Canada in a Warming World.
Josh Dorfman, author of The Lazy Environmentalist: Your Guide to Easy, Stylish, Green Living and star of Sundance Channel's TV series The Lazy Environmentalist.
Joe Romm, popular blogger at ClimateProgress.org and author of the new book, Straight Up: America's fiercest climate blogger takes on the status quo.
ClimateTV will also be airing an online broadcast premiere of the award-winning documentary No Impact Man starting at 3:30pm pacific, 6:30pm eastern. The screening will be followed by a live interactive panel discussion with special guests Jennifer Prediger, also known as “Ask Umbra” on Grist.org, David Beers, founding editor of The Tyee.ca, Kim Thee, ClimateTV host and Kevin Grandia, yours truly :)
Pop on by and say hello, we'll running a live Q & A and chat forum all day as well.
Happy Earth Day!
