Things that might happen an XOEarth Man Show

+ The audience and I talk about how to estimate how much habitat is saved when a specific product is not purchased. For example, one calculation we may do in the show demonstrates that every gallon of gasoline not burned helps save about 8 square meters of habitat potential somewhere in the world. Another calculation we may do demonstrates that every time a person uses a clothesline instead of an electric or gas clothes dryer it helps save about 1.5 square meters of habitat potential somewhere in the world. [Based on ecofx.org's estimate of 1 kilogram CO2 to .8 square meters habitat potential ratio.]

+ The audience can help me write an environmental song. Audience members are then invited to become part of the XOEarth band. Once volunteers come onstage, we sing the environmental song that we just wrote, plus some improv. Audience members often video their friends singing the song, and post those videos on Facebook, Instagram and beyond.

+ One of the audience members are invited to talk about an environmental action they are taking or promise to take to help slow down climate change. Then that individual is awarded an XOEarth Award from the rest of the audience, for the environmental action that the person takes, or promises to take. XOEarth Man fills out the award, then several of us hold onto the award as we step forward and present the XOEarth Award to that person.

+ An audience member is invited to talk about their career plans. XOEarth Man and the friends then talk about how to make that career more sustainable and climate positive. In some shows, peeps have promised that they will tweak their job or even get a new job in order to be more earth friendly. The job of sustainability coach or eco manager is sometimes proposed.

More about XOEarth Man Shows in Boulder Colorado and beyond

XOEarth Man is here to make your party more fun while honoring your friends, or company team, or students, or children for helping keep this exquisite planet alive.

XOEarth Man will bring his friend EarthE who sits on his shoulder. EarthE is a talking, singing and scientific minded Earth puppet. EarthE is quite the positive and witty character.

In most presentations XOEarth Man will sing improvised and other songs and lead singalongs based on input from audience members.

In some presentations one or more people can talk about something that they do or promise to do to help extend the life of our blue orb. Then one person or the group may honor that person. In larger groups, the whole group may decide to promise to take a specific big climate action. XOEarth Man may facilitate the honoring with a group song, dance, XOEarth Award or future story.

XOEarth Man's music may guide people on journeys into the future to hear from and sing with people, children and wild animals from around the world. These future journeys and future mind melds often reveal how an environmental action that the group or someone takes will benefit a specific human or a specific lifeform in the future.

The XOEarth show may also include funny climate science, magic words, climate victory dances, eco autographs, eco fashion, body art, and one minute nature meditations.

In some presentations XOEarth Awards are given out to one or all of the group members to honor their past or future eco actions. Sometimes the XOEarth Awards are signed by other participants. Occasionally the XOEarth Awards are signed by a future person or species via a future journey led by XOEarth Man.

If the organizer tells XOEarth Man in advance about the eco actions that one or more of the group are taking, he will sing a custom eco song to honor their actions. Signed XOEarth Awards or other awards can be presented to those honorees.

When a group has time for a deeper adventure, we will talk about ways to speak for future children, for our favorite species, and for our biosphere. We might explore also call on our favorite species to energize our life, work, love and climate emergency action powers.

XOEarth Man will bring the talking and singing Earth puppet that sits on his shoulder. The talking Earth is quite the positive character and can sing a smiggen too.

XOEarth Man may be donning a big Earth tie, planet Earth bracelets, temp tattoos and other planet Earth clothing. XOEarth Man attire may inspire others to put on their climate action style as well to give some street cred to team Earth.

In every XOEarth Man show his climate action music, green science and environmental award show will be upbeat and fun.

In every XOEarth Man show he will honor and encourage others to take climate actions to help keep the planet livable for current humans, the animals of land and sea, and for the children of the future.

XOEarth Man is available for school, business, special event, wedding and custom videos.

Take your friends, group or company on an eco-smart-fun-musical-magical-future-journey.

Suggestion for an onstage MC's intro

Next up is XOEarth Man [or XOEarth Stele]. He dedicates at least 140 activist minutes a day to help stop the Climate Change Monsters that could mess with his [or your] town, mess with one of his [or your] friends or mess with some place where one of his [or your] favorite lifeforms lives.

Then every week, he celebrates if he succeeds in helping keep those Climate Change Monsters away for another week.

When you see XOEarth Man [XOEarth Stele], tell him how you do your 140 activist minutes a day and he will do victory dance, sing a song or do a cartwheel to thank you. Or contact him via XOEarth.org or XOEarth facebook to get a song or dance from via live video.

To get some rad and fun ways to amp up your 140 activist minutes every day, check out XOEarth.org/HERO.

    Hello All, "XOEarth Man" Stele Ely is the name of the guy who delivers environmental songs, music, poetry and art for the planet. After he entertained at my house, the kids continued to talk about him and ask if he would be coming the next day. They were very entertained and excited about him and were fully engaged while he was here. I am not sure how well his message got through to the kids, but it did get through to me in raising my awareness and wanting to make a difference. He will come in a cape with a small guitar, sing songs, make bracelets, and be very fun, interactive and entertaining. You can check out some of his stuff at xoearth.org.

    Move over, Captain Planet. Meet the environment’s new superheroes:: They’re called environmental scientists, and they’re everywhere — working in government, starting businesses, teaching at universities, running non-profits. They’re just not as noticeable this time around because they decided to nix the matching t-shirts — a move that, I think we can all agree, was wise. http://grist.org/sponsored/move-over-captain-plan...

    Team Earth: Excerpt from *We All Play For Team Earth* by Daniel Yeow: In 2007 I visited Brazil for the first time, and while I was there, I attended a football match between Flamenco and Botafogo at the Maracanã Stadium in Rio. While it is well-known that the Brazilians love their football, I was surprised at how poorly each of the teams played. Each individual player possessed a great deal of skill, but as the clock slowly wound down, they each held the ball for a little too long, and tried to do a little too much on their own. What inevitably followed were embarrassing misses and tactical errors. You see - individuals each striving for their own selfish goals doesn't get you very far, and can bring you into conflict with the overarching goal of the team. It's about time we grew up and learned to do our part, because we are all members of team earth, and we all share the same goal of survival - as a team, and we must do it fast - the clock is winding down.

    I do an XOEarth Man performance in which I show people some fun ways to speak for their favorite species and the children of the future. XOEarth Man also teaches others how to write songs for the future kids and critters. Sometimes we even come up with 'magic words' to empower one's life and eco actions. Be an XOEarth Woman or XOEarth Man in your town.
