  • Living on Earth

Listening to these podcasts—which include descriptions of natural habitats, sometimes brief sound recordings of habitats, scientific background info and political issues that must be confronted to protect them — engages, inspires, and motivates me to act and find ways to contribute to reducing global warming and saving our planet for future generations.

    I’ve been listening to LOE for over 15 years. It’s my #1 and I will always come back. Heartfelt, science driven, creative, and a balance between the hard truths of the climate emergency and optimism for a better future.

Corporate subsidy? Isopropyl alcohol is in those covid hand cleansers with added "softeners". soap is still best folks and less plastic waste.
