Walk The Talk Show’s Best Videos for Earth Day.

“What’s the use of a fine house if you haven’t got a tolerable planet to put it on?”  ~ Henry David Thoreau 

Happy Earth Day. Here are some of our favorite #green videos from the Walk the Talk Show with Waylon Lewis.

There are a ton of challenges facing the earth today, and it’s easy to get discouraged. This collection of videos reminds us how powerful we are when we decide to look at our problems and empower ourselves to do something about it. #walkyourtalk

“If you like challenges, there’s no greater time to be alive.” ~ Lester Brown

Waylon & Leading Environmentalist Lester Brown:

“The average bite of food in this country travels 2,000 miles.” ~ Bill McKibben.

Waylon & Environmental Author Bill McKibben:

“That anyone should need to write a book advising people to “eat food” could be taken as a measure of our alienation and confusion. Or we can choose to see it in a more positive light and count ourselves fortunate indeed that there is once again real food for us to eat.”  ~ Michael Pollan In Defense of Food

Waylon & his foodie idol Michael Pollan:

“Fracking is everywhere. Hide yo wife, hide yo kids, hide yo health, hide yo real estate value…it’s bad, bad, bad stuff. It causes little earthquakes and dirties millions of gallons of drinkable water. All for 50 cent savings on gas—when instead we could be investing in solar and wind and going all clean, green and domestic.” ~ Waylon Lewis

Waylon & Filmmaker Josh Fox:

“If our judging is motivated by reality, instead of by preconceptions…we see reality instead of our own views reflected in our experience.” ~ Waylon Lewis
