The Lungs of Our Planet Need Our Help | Jimmy Halfcut

Listen Now

In Episode #92, I sat down with Australian environmentalist James Stanton-Cooke, or ‘Jimmy Halfcut’, to talk about the role that our rainforests play in keeping our climate cool. I met James a few months ago at a charity night in Bondi, and with the fires currently burning across Australia, I couldn’t help but think this was the perfect time to sit down and talk about mother nature.

Listen to hear Jimmy and I discuss the importance of rainforest preservation as well as Australian wildfires, controlled burning, hazard reduction, circulation burning, regenerative agriculture, and Australia’s energy situation with regard to coal and renewables. You’ll also hear Jimmy share some practical things you can do to lower your environmental footprint.
