Health of Earth and humans


In The Sustainable Hour on 5 December 2018 we interview Fiona Armstrong, founder of Climate & Health Alliance, and Jonathan Balls, Melbourne University researcher on renewable energy who specialises in the development in India.

We’ve also talk with 13-year-old Alex Aidt who took part in the school strikes for climate action in both Geelong and Melbourne, and with Emmanuelle Serera, cook and owner of the first hemp inspired restaurant in Melbourne, Hemp Kitchen.

We play a couple of short clips from ABC’s Q&A, where Marco asked a sharp question – and from the UN conference in Poland where 92-year-old BBC-legend David Attenborough and 15-year-old Greta Thunberg both spoke beautifully about the climate emergency and the urgency for action on reducing our carbon emissions.

 #HEMP #FOOD: 

 

A taste for hemp

Hemp Kitchen in St Kilda is the first hemp-based restaurant in Victoria.

Hemp Kitchen taps into the superfood’s exciting potential while reintroducing delicacies that food intolerances have chased out of your diet. The restaurant has designed an innovative gluten free menu with a range of vegetarian, vegan and dairy free meals.

The difference between hemp and marijuana
The main difference between the two is in its chemical composition, specifically in tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is the chemical responsible marijuana’s psychological effects. An average batch of marijuana contains anywhere from 5-20% THC content. Hemp, on the other hand, has a maximum THC level of 0.3%, essentially making it impossible to feel any psychoactive effect or get a “high”.

Health benefits of Hemp
Hemp seeds are incredibly nutritious, they contain over 30% fat. They are exceptionally rich in two essential fatty acids, omega-6 &omega-3. They are also a a great protein source, as more than 25% of their total calories are from high-quality protein. 

Hemp seeds are also a great source of vitamin E and minerals such as phosphorus, potassium, sodium, magnesium, sulfur, calcium, iron and zinc. They can be consumed raw, cooked or roasted. Hemp seed oil is also very healthy, and has been used as a food/medicine in China for at least 3,000 years.

Hemp Seeds Are a Great Source of Plant-Based Protein, about 25% of calories in hemp seeds come from protein. In fact, by weight, hemp seeds provide similar amounts of protein to beef and lamb.

Acknowledgement

We at The Sustainable Hour would like to pay our respect to the traditional custodians of the land on which we are broadcasting, the Wathaurong People, and pay our respect to their elders, past, present and future.

The traditional owners lived in harmony with the environment and with the climate for hundreds of generations. It is not clear – yet – that as European settlers we have demonstrated that we can live in harmony for hundreds of generations, but it is clear that we can learn from the indigenous, traditional owners of this land.

When we talk about the future, it means extending our respect to those children not yet born, the generations of the future – remembering the old saying that…

The decisions currently being made around Australia to ignore climate change are being made by those who won’t be around by the time the worst effects hit home. How utterly disgusting, disrespectful and unfair is that?
