July 2021, the hottest month in history. Glaciers are retreating around the world, sea levels are rising at alarming speeds, and the intensity and frequency of hurricanes have all increased. Climate change isn't a distant threat - it is happening now. The environmental impacts of our collective human actions include more extreme weather and natural disasters, chronic drought, and economic instability. Failure to act is not an option.

 

Climate action isn't just about declarative statements or lofty announcements; it is about courage, action, and execution. On this final episode of Force Multiplier Season One, we have two reasons to be hopeful, two reasons to believe in the future that looks bright for our planet - Birgit Cameron and Jennifer Morris. Birgit, Co-Founder, and Head of Patagonia Provisions, a division of Patagonia Works, passionately describes the role nature and, specifically, soil plays in saving our planet. With a focus on sustainable ingredients, we learn how supporting regenerative farming practices that rebuild soil health can promote biodiversity and capture carbon dioxide from the atmosphere - techniques that can mitigate and potentially reverse climate change.

 

Jennifer Morris, CEO of The Nature Conservancy - the largest environmental non-profit organization in the Americas. Jen shares how important it is to deploy solutions that maximize nature's own ability to fight climate change. But change at a meaningful scale cannot be achieved by any one organization. As Jen sees it, tangible, lasting results will only come from radical collaboration—across sectors, across beliefs, across knowledge bases. As a self-proclaimed "impatient optimist," - she believes that the global community can come together and enact the right policies, shift industries toward a more sustainable path, and empower local communities to protect the resources that sustain them.
