In the 2016 US Presidential election, over 10 million people who listed the environment their top priority didn't vote.You might be asking, how can you be an environmentalist and not vote?

Today, Nathaniel Stinnett provides the answers.

Nathaniel Stinnett is the Founder & Executive Director of the Environmental Voter Project, a non-partisan nonprofit that uses big data and behavioral science to identify non-voting environmentalists and then get them to vote.

Dubbed “The Voting Guru” by Grist magazine, Stinnett was named one of America’s 50 environmental visionaries, and he is a frequent expert speaker on cutting-edge campaign techniques at top universities and campaign management training. He has held a variety of senior leadership and campaign manager positions on U.S. Senate, Congressional, state, and mayoral campaigns, and he sits on the Board of Advisors for MIT’s Environmental Solutions Initiative.

Nathaniel Stinnett will provide fascinating, insightful, and jaw-dropping reasons on why environmentalists don't vote in elections along with:

  • Why politicians don't prioritize climate change
  • The importance of a single vote
  • Why people vote
  • Turn out problems among environmentalists
  • Introduction to the Environmental Voter Project

Thank you for joining me today. Hope today’s podcast inspires you to vote for the environment.

Today I sit down with Brooklyn Borough President, Eric Adams.

Eric is in the running to be the next mayor of New York City and he is using his platform to spark real change and spread the plant-based message.

Here is some background. At 15 years old, Eric Adams was beaten by police. The traumatizing incident inspired him to become a police officer to help reform New York City policing from the inside. He co-founded 100 Blacks in Law Enforcement Who Care, and after 22 years on the force, retired as a captain.

Eric served in the New York Senate for seven years and was elected Brooklyn Borough President in 2013. He is now serving his second term.

In 2016 when Eric was out of the country, he experienced stomach pains and feared it was colon cancer.

When he returned to America, he went to the doctor and found out that his colon was fine, but that he had an ulcer and was in the late stages of type-2 diabetes. This caused him to lose sight in his left eye and was slowly losing it in his right eye, making him legally blind. He even experienced nerve damage in his hands and feet from diabetes.

Eric went and spoke to multiple doctors like Dr. Esselstyn, who told him to stop eating processed foods, dairy, and meat. After three weeks of following their recommendations, Eric’s vision cleared up from diabetes. After three months, his diabetes went into remission, and his ulcer went away. He dropped 35 pounds and realized the power of food and how fast your body responds to you giving it the proper nutrients it needs to function.

But this conversation isn't just about Eric's transformation, it is also about how he is using his position to encourage New York to explore plant-based eating and creating new food policies.

Be prepared to be inspired by Eric Adams.

You can pre-order Eric Adams new book "Healthy At Last: A Plant-based Approach to Preventing Diabetes and Other Chronic Illnesses" on Amazon.

News flash: 2020 has been a rough year on everybody. And according to a recent happiness study, people in the US are more unhappy today than they've been in nearly 50 years. The study found that just 14% of American adults say they're very happy. This statistic is down from 31% who said the same in 2018.

Furthermore, in other parts of the world, the health and economic impact of Covid-19 has been significant. So stress and unhappiness isn't just an American problem.

Obviously, it's easy to cultivate happiness when life is going our way. But what about the darker times? How can some people remain happy in troubling times?

As it turns out, scientific data suggests there are particular reasons why some people weather the storm better than others.

Today's podcast is devoted to evidence-based studies on how to be happy along with:

  • Happiness Study 2019
  • World Happiness Report
  • Harvard College Study on why some people live longer and happier
  • The secrets of people who remain happy in stressful times
  • The importance of community service
  • Community service ideas
  • How contact with nature strengthens our social bonds
  • A new study on dairy and breast cancer
  • Toxic chemicals in dental floss
