Nowadays, we use the internet for almost everything. We use it when we are hungry, we use it for work, we use it when we want to know how to open a soda without a bottle cap opener, and so on. However, some people take this universal tool very seriously. They use the internet to redirect our attention from everyday problems to the world’s environmental problems. We present to you the most dedicated online environmentalist and their podcasts.
Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus are the creators of the podcasts called The Minimalists launched in 2008. They have helped more than 20 million people live more meaningful lives while saving resources through their website, books, podcasts, and films. They don’t call themselves environmentalists explicitly, but in their podcasts, they talked about how to live without wasting resources. Their podcasts are designed to sound like a radio show, which makes them sound more interesting, genuine, and relatable.
Zach Bush, MD, is the founder of two non-profit organizations that deal with environmental issues. He founded Seraphic Group, an organization that deals with the problems of human and ecological health, and the organization called Farmer’s Footprint that tackles the effects of chemical farming on people and nature. Both organizations are supported by scientists, businessmen, educators, doctors, and farmers. From time to time, Zach Bush spreads his environmentalist messages through his podcasts, the last one being “Let’s connect humans to be co-creative rather than consumptive.”
Sam Harris is a philosopher and a neuroscientist who has dedicated his life to answering controversial questions about human culture, thought, and society as they are changing.
Apart from his books “The End of Faith”, “Letter to a Christian Nation”, “The Moral Landscape: How Science Could Determine Human Values”, “Free Will”, you can hear his reasoning about current events in his “The Making Sense” podcasts.
Not only professors and MDs care about the planet. There are also ordinary people who are passionate about saving animals and the planet. Through their actions and examples, we can see that anyone can do their part in saving the planet Earth. With a lot of effort, Ed Winters has created a non-profit organization named Surge, dedicated to fighting for animal rights. His greatest achievement is the organization of “The Official Animal Rights March” in London, which gathered more than 40,000 people in 2019. Ed spreads his environmentalist messages through lectures and his YouTube channel Earthling Ed.
These are only a few people who care about the Earth and want to share their ideas and efforts with others online. If you want to fight for our planet, you should know that you are definitely not alone.
