Ready to unearth some mechanisms behind combating greenhouse gases and climate change? Join me in this enlightening conversation with Jenny Morgan, a passionate environmental justice advocate, and Market Development Manager at Tradewater. We dive straight into Tradewater’s remarkable work in managing halocarbons and methane equivalent to a staggering 6.7 million metric tons of CO2, and the profound impact this has on our environment.
The episode takes a fascinating turn as we brave the choppy waters of cancel culture, greenwashing, and greenHUSHING. We break down how these controversial topics shape climate discourse and the cascading effects they have on brands like Windex and Nature Valley. Striking an optimistic note, we reveal how you can be a catalyst for change, starting with the power of your dollar. Then, we peel back the layers of the complex task of plugging orphaned oil and gas wells and the environmental hazards posed by leaking methane.
No stone is left unturned as we delve into the transformative power of collective action in curbing climate change. We share inspiring stories from Tradewater’s impactful initiatives in Ghana and the courageous individuals on the frontlines of environmental conservation. The conversation takes a serious turn as we reflect on the ramifications of the Supreme Court’s decision to lift federal protections for the majority of our wetlands. We round up the episode with a detailed discussion on B Corp certification, the insidious influence of greenwashing, and the potential of collective action to make a tangible difference in the fight against climate change.
