Quoted on the Show: Earth Day, Science, and the Trump Administration

For "EARTH DAY," our guest is resilience strategist and environmental activist, Pamela Boyce Simms.

At its most personal, on the ‘you-and-me-let’s-get-real’ gut level, what does climate change truly mean? And, what’s at stake?

How we adapt to the realities of climate change is key to our survival, says Pamela.  “We have three days food supply in most cities, towns, and hamlets. I’m talking about friends and neighbors figuring out how to be less vulnerable than that.”  With the increase of "natural" disasters, what's at stake is access to food and fresh water.  

In her practice, Pamela Boyce Simms works with the United Nations, the Quaker-led Earthcare Coalition, and the Transition movement to build resilience networks. Creating Afrocentric food production solutions, she develops survival models for the world’s most vulnerable populations.
