David de Rothschild is shilling NWO on the Sundance Channel
David de Rothschild (Yes, THOSE Rothschilds) is hosting a show on the Sundance channel which is basically conditioning us to get used to the idea that our standard of living has got to drop for the sake of the environment.

Here's the show's site:

Here's an LA Times article:

Eco Trip: A high price for all those conveniences
The Sundance Channel series takes a compelling, often disturbing look at how many of America's conveniences come at a price -- to our land, our water and ourselves.
By Lisa Boone

April 25, 2009
You may love your gold wedding band, but would you buy another knowing that it resulted in 20 tons of mine waste? Would you buy a bottle of water if you knew that eight out of 10 containers end up in a landfill or an incinerator and take 500 years to decompose?

These are some of the lessons of "Eco Trip: The Real Cost of Living," a new series running Tuesdays on the Sundance Channel. It's a compelling, often-disturbing look at how many of America's conveniences come at a price -- to our land, our water and ourselves. Hosted by David de Rothschild, the half-hour programs trace common items such as paper napkins, cellphones and cotton T-shirts from production to disposal.

I couldn't watch the episode on chocolate, but the shows I did preview were laced with facts and driven by interviews with scientists and ecologists -- a welcome relief in this day of "eco-experts" with dubious credentials. De Rothschild is a hunky and gregarious host, though his attempts at humor can feel awkward, given the serious subject matter. The shtick seems ill-timed, for example, when viewers are presented the toxic contents of a Monterey seabird that had died a "slow death" by ingesting plastic trash.

I know.

I LOVE how suddenly a Rothschild is a TV personality.

And it's not the least bit predictable that it's for THIS cause...

He's a faker. He speaks for no environment bettering movement.

Sure every post I have mentions goat blood...How do you think we get plasma tv's?

Organic needs are being assaulted. I'm not amused by this & encourage all to grow heirloom seed for themselves.

Re: David de Rothschild is shilling NWO on the Sundance Channel
Hmm, he holds an advanced degree in Naturpathic Medicine and owns an organic farm. He doesn't wear $250 shoes in his interviews...instead quite often you see him in TOMS, a shoe that costs roughly $40 and for every one pair you buy the company donates a pair to a needy child...oh and he has rescue dogs.

So, you fault him because he was born into money. Something he had no choice over. NOW, he makes choices, all of which are for the greater good and you bad mouth him only because he happens to come from one of the wealthiest families in Europe? Basically in your mind he is damned either way...if he wastes his resources he's a damn aristocratic brat but if he filters his wealth into creating true "wealth", a wealth that isn't about money but a viable healthy ecosystem that supports us all...when then he's just a dilitant who must be greenwashing us all.

I don't know the man but would love a day to pick his brain. The more I read, the more I am fascinated. He makes no qualms about the problems at hand being OUR problem...a collective whole... that we ALL must participate in finding a solution. He is not sitting back telling everyone what THEY need to do...he is walking the walk that he speaks of. He is trying to get the collective to consider the impact of every decision they make. We need to stop consuming and start conserving.

Until each of you has committed yourselves to being as self aware as this man, even for a single day... to think about the effect of EVERYTHING that everything you buy, consume, throw out, and just plain DO.... don't find infantile excuses for insulting him. If any of you had twice the money...you couldn't do half the work he has.

Oh and the ill timed humor... it's British humor. Monty Python, Red Dwarf, Dr Who, Black Adder, those shows didn't work for mainstream American audiences because the majority of us thought the humor to be ...off.
