Episode 3: My Christmas gift to you... the secret to a filling, satisfying vegan breakfast
I got the crazy idea of putting together a quick, freestyle, Christmas episode wherein I could give, perhaps, a few folks out there a simple Green Neighbour Christmas gift, AND give some folks an opportunity to give each other a Christmas gift as well. As my gift, I thought I would share the secret to a filling, satisfying vegan breakfast.

The age of climate denial is dead. Not everybody knows it yet, but, at this point in time, the days of climate denial are clearly numbered. Of this, there is no doubt.

Episode 1: What's the big deal with a few degrees of warming?
Have you ever wondered, "How on Earth could a 1°C increase in global temperature make any kind of difference?"  Well, if you have, you're not alone. Plenty of people think that a mere 1°C or 2°C of warming actually sounds pretty nice. This episode looks at why increases in global temperature of just a few degrees can be, well - in a word - catastrophic.
