Governor Jay Inslee (WA) is running for President of the United States with action on climate change as his number one priority. In this special episode of Think 100%, he sits down with our co-host Mustafa Santiago Ali to breakdown how he, as the Governor of Washington state, has put communities of color at the forefront of climate solutions and the need for diversity in the environmental movement.

Watch Part of the Interview with Governor Inslee

Nathan Phillips, Indigenous Leaders, and Catholic Priest Speak Out [Jan 29, 2019]


On last week’s episode we shared a clip of an interview our Think 100% Show co-host Rev Yearwood did with Nathan Phillips, the Native American elder and veteran who peacefully stepped in when the students of Covington Catholic High School had worked themselves into a mob on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial following the Indigenous People’s March on January 18th. The videos captured of the encounter were seen around the world and while the initial response was of almost universal horror at the bigotry displayed, within days the narrative had shifted and even President Trump weighed in with support for the Catholic school students.


This special episode of Think 100% aired on the day we remember the Bear River Massacre that took place January 29, 1863. We dive into what happened on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, what the Indigenous People’s Movement is about, what our climate movement can do to follow the knowledge, wisdom and expertise of Indigenous people’s across this country and world, and the crossroads the Catholic Church is at today between a culture of division and bigotry, or a vehicle of peace and nonviolence.


Our guests are inspiring leaders who help us understand what this all means in historical, spiritual, religious, cultural, and political context. We talk with Nathan Phillips, Chase Iron Eyes of Lakota Law Project, Quese IMC, an award winning recording artist and cultural activist, Phyllis Young, of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, and Father John Dear, a Catholic priest who has spent 40 years advocating for nonviolence.

A Fight We Can All Get Behind. [January 8, 2019]


Environmental racism is playing out in Union Hill, a predominately African-American community in rural Virginia founded by freed slaves. One of the largest monopoly utilities in the country and corporate donors in Virginia politics is helping run a campaign of disinformation in order to build a massive polluting gas compressor station in the heart of the community as part of the massive Atlantic Coast Pipeline project. In this show our hosts are joined by the actor and activist Tim Guinee, as well as Pastor Paul Wilson, a leader of the #WeAreAlllUnionHill coalition, to breakdown what’s happening in Union Hill, Virginia — a fight you should be involved in if you care about environmental justice, transitioning off fossil fuels, holding elected officials accountable, and protecting the health and heritage of communities.

The National Environmental Justice Advisory Council Youth’s Perspectives on Climate Justice Workgroup, established in 2016, just released a new comprehensive report detailing their recommendations for environmental protection and youth engagement to the EPA. We’ll be joined by members of that workgroup, Anthony Torres and Eriqah Vincent, to discuss the extensive process in putting the report together and their recommendations, which include promoting youth leaders and addressing the health impacts of climate change. This episode is a must listen for organizations who promote youth leadership in their work.

For more, check out the Press Release and Report.

We’ll also be joined by leaders of the Endangered Species Coalition to discuss ongoing attacks on the Endangered Species Act, public lands and waters protections, and climate action. Despite strong public support and an extensive track record of preventing more than 99 percent of listed species from going extinct, the Endangered Species Act is being attacked under the guise of “reform” by the current Administration and politicians on Capitol Hill as part of their polluter-friendly deregulatory agenda.

Tune in for a solutions filled show featuring stories from The New American Road Trip, a cross-country journey taking place right now in an electric car to highlight “Unsung Heroes of Climate Change”. Along the way, the trip is stopping to meet with local leaders, innovators, workers, and communities proving that America’s commitment to fighting climate change is real, is robust, and is going to move us forward to healthier, 100% clean energy future for all.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (aka Jamie Lannister in Game of Thrones!)

The trip started last week at the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco, where local leaders in the U.S. and around the world set new ambitious goals to fight climate change. At the summit, city and state governments, business leaders and civil society signed a call to action showing their increased ambition to mitigate climate change. Since the summit, the trip has weaved its way across the country, gathering support for the call to action with events in Las Vegas, Boulder, St. Louis, and Pittsburgh featuring local leaders and special guests like actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Game of Thrones).

In Las Vegas, our co-host Antonique Smith joined Michael Bloomberg and CEO of MGM Jim Murren to highlight how renewable energy makes good business sense (picture below, story here).

On Wednesday, September 26th, the trip will conclude by delivering the call to action at Climate Week NYC 2018 to French President Emmanuel Macron, a symbolic gesture to show that America is “still in” when it comes to fighting climate change.

Joining us live on the air from the road trip will be the talented comedian, writer, producer, and activist, JC Coccoli, aka the Earth’s Fiercest Comedy Darling. She’s been helping drive and will share with us some of the stories from stops across the country.
