One Planet III

A photo taken in Sydney, Australia in 2008 – one of those used in my revised One Planet video.

My 1983 pro-environment anti-nuke song has gained new, urgent relevance.

Back in 1983 the situation was so scary that I wrote two songs on the nuke issue.

Note on March 7, 2022: even more perilous.

In 2016, I  replaced the old One Planet video with a much better video produced using new equipment and software. It contained new, HD photos taken by me with the same great, old, quotations from gifted female and male thinkers on world issues.

Having done a very small editing of the 2016 version II I now call the video,

One Planet III

Dr. Vandana Shiva, author of the above photo’s quote, born in November, 1952, is a brave, brilliant agricultural activist from India, known as the Seed Lady for her successful securing of seed banks of key, traditional plants against their extinction. Traditional seeds are now threatened by the patenting of seed for profit perpetrated by powerful corporations like Monsanto. This article from 2019 indicates that the valiant seed battle continues. The older ways are sometimes less threatened by flooding and the “food crusaders” are fighting hard to preserve India’s heritage of a vast variety of plants and seeds.
