This is from a recent appearance by James Ehrlich at the Authors@Google program. Filmed at Google's Headquarters in Mountain View, California, it was also simulcast to 6 other Google offices around the world, and is now posted on YouTube.
Besides talking about the best-selling cookbook ("The Hippy Gourmet's Quick and Simple Cookbook for Healthy Eating" Hachette USA), James speaks about producing a hit PBS and nationally syndicated television series (Organic Living with the Hippy Gourmet) that has its focus on all things organic and sustainable.
Featuring sustainable cooking with solar cookers from the Solar Oven Society and Tulsi of India, James discusses the importance of cultivating Industrial Hemp by showing nutiva Hemp Seeds, Dash Hemp clothes, Hemp DVD cases, as well as speaking about the Industrial Hemp solution to world hunger and the growing food crisis.
James also mentions his great appreciation for the long standing partnership between Google, YouTube and Hippy Gourmet TV, and shares his passion for producing socially responsible community television that has become a global phenomenon.
This 40-minute presentation is compelling and insightful.
