Today is an exclusive live video interview with Karenna Gore, for the interview series “Interviews with the Leading Edge.”
In this series of interviews, I engage with people who are on the leading edge of transformational change, doing work to further the consciousness revolution and how it is manifesting in culture, politics and spirituality, in order to help bring along a more enlightened society.
Karenna Gore is one such person.
Karenna is an environmental activist, the director of the Center for Earth Ethics at Union Theological Seminary, the author of the book “Lighting the Way: 9 Women Who Shaped Modern America,” and the daughter of former Vice-President Al Gore.
I caught up with Karenna at the Center for Earth Ethics at Union Theological Seminary in New York City, and there we talked about her background and her life growing up in a political family; the book she wrote about nine women who shaped modern America; if she thinks about the might-have-beens if her father had won the 2000 presidential election; her disinterest in running for political office; her work at the Center for Earth Ethics and why the stewardship of the earth is not a political issue but a religious/moral issue; her work with indigenous people and the Original Caretakers program that is the cornerstone of the Center for Earth Ethics; her advocacy for climate change justice; her thoughts on Donald Trump and his disastrous environmental policies; why we must maintain hope in these tenuous times; and more.
Karenna’s work advocating for a new way of how we live on this planet is having a tremendous impact. While someone with her pedigree could be sitting in the spotlight and making a living as a pundit in various media, she instead has devoted herself to helping all living beings realize the wisdom of living in an evolved – ecologically, spiritually, and culturally – loving, and humane way together.
