Our world is in peril. I wanted to play my part to help combat this so, at the ripe age of 23, I summoned my inner Captain Planet and set out to launch a social platform, LifeKraze, that would reward people for taking action and ultimately change the world for the better. To make LifeKraze a reality, I dialed up the tall order of raising over a million dollars, creating a product, and building a team. The most important of these (while I was unaware at the time) was building the right team. Here’s what Captain Planet and the Planeteers taught me about great teams.
The Planeteers are about as diverse as you can get. They have different powers, cultures, and personalities. While the Planeteers don’t see eye to eye all the time, their differences give the team the balance necessary to defeat various eco-villians (my personal favorite Duke Nukem).
My team is made up of ten people right now. We’re not each from a different country and we don’t have super powers (that we can speak of) but we all bring a unique approach and special skill sets to the team. This helps us to see things from multiple perspectives and rely on each other to operate efficiently. Diversity of thought and skill is critical for a team’s success.
Let’s be honest Captain Planet has powers that make Superman jealous but his Kryptonite (any type of pollution) is far more plentiful than the green space rock. He relies on his Planeteers to come to his rescue at times. The Planeteers are also responsible for taking care of duties without Captain Planet.
At LifeKraze I don’t make every decision, I don’t handle every project, and I’m not the best option for everything that comes our way. I love having capable teammates that are better than me in certain areas because collectively it makes us a better team. Strong leaders surround themselves with the best.
The iconic parting phrase of Captain Planet ”The power is yours!” returns special abilities to the Planeteers but is also a message to all Planeteers implying their task and ability to protect the environment. Captain Planet has extraordinary abilities but his greatest power is Planeteers.
I don’t have an iconic parting phrase but a major part of my role as the CEO of LifeKraze is to empower my teammates. I can’t give them the power of wind or fire but I can find ways that help my teammates enjoy their work and be more effective. Empower individuals in a way that leads to collective success.
I love my team and I’m proud that together we turned an idea into a celebrated community of 20,000 plus that’s motivating and rewarding thousands every day…and we’re just getting started.
You can’t be earth’s greatest company without building the world’s greatest team.
5 Ways to Make the Captain Planet Movie Full of Win.
The past year has been pretty huge for Captain Planet. Last September 15th marked the 20th anniversary of the pilot and the birth of the Planeteer Movement. Earth Week 2011 saw the release of Captain Planet on DVD for the first time ever. And now, the most-asked question regarding Captain Planet has finally been answered: “Will there ever be a Captain Planet movie?”
The answer is yes, as reported by Tuesday’s official press release. According to the release, the film is being produced by Angry Filmworks, the same team behind Michael Bay’s VFX-spectacled ‘Transformers’ trilogy. While Captain Planet’s not known for giant talking robots, it does have a huge mythology to lift from and can definitely make a big bang on the big screen. So with that, I give you my opinions on 5 Ways to Make the Captain Planet Movie Ridiculously Awesome!
1. Include the Planeteers.
While it seems like a no-brainer, stranger things have happened in Hollywood. No Planeteers means no Captain Planet. That much of the mythology at least has to stay intact. Some of the show’s most dramatic moments were when a member had quit the team or couldn’t find their ring and therefore Captain Planet couldn’t be called when he was needed most. That’s cinematic gold, and that bit of dramatic tension adds a lot of depth. The Planeteers (as a metaphor for the audience) provide the whole meaning for the catchphrase, “The Power Is Yours!”
Otherwise, the Power would just be.. his.
2. Don’t spend the whole film on the origin story.
It seems to be the natural trend of superhero films to spend most of the first movie telling the hero’s origin and ending with the hero’s first real battle. But Captain Planet’s origin was covered in the first minute of every episode. It was kind of a thing. The movie could very well have an entirely new story (think like the most epic episode of Captain Planet ever) without focusing the entire film around the origin. It probably needs to be touched on, but that could easily be done during the film’s opening title sequence.
3. Let the villains team up.
Captain Planet has an incredible rogue’s gallery featuring some of the most recognizable villains from our childhoods. Many modern superhero films focus on each film being about one villain, and are often criticized if the film has multiple villains (I for one, liked, Spider Man 3 .) But the nature of most CP episodes was a teamup of various villains. It was kind of interesting how despite working independently, they did occasionally all join forces. I’d personally like to see Looten and Blight in the first film, but there’s been a lot of clamor for Captain Pollution on the Facebook Page.
Zarm: "But I don't WANT to wait for the sequel!"
4. Gaia is a goddess, not a Barbie.
Time to get out the Sociology 1101 books. I’ve seen a few suggestions on message boards from people hoping for Gaia to be ‘hotter’ than she is in the show. Captain Planet was about breaking these kinds of trends and not always choosing the highest common denominator. Gaia doesn’t need to be a supermodel, she needs to be the Spirit of the Earth. She’s a powerful female character, and making her ‘hot’ would just be a little too patriarchal.
5. Provide some real-life food for thought.
One of the great things about Captain Planet (the series) was that the story complimented the message. It was never too heavy-handed, but had enough substance so that when it’s over, you might remember a bit of what you saw and it might raise your awareness to certain issues. Two hours of film could easily be turned into a disaster movie, but the smart thing to do would be to provide thought-provoking scenarios that cause the viewer to ask, “What would I do in this situation?” The film has a chance not just to inspire children, but people of all ages – and if people can leave with a heightened awareness of their global footprint without seeming cumbersome, it might just be enough to cause a positive change. And that would really be something.

In an effort to inform younger viewers about serious environmental issues, legendary cable entrepreneur Ted Turner partnered with DIC Enterprises in 1990 to create the world’s first animated environmental series, Captain Planet and the Planeteers. The series was about a group of young people who combine their special powers ( The Planeteers ) to summon Captain Planet, an environmental superhero, to battle the world’s worst eco-villains.
Captain Planet and the Planeteers premiered in fall 1990, airing domestically and internationally in syndication and on cable networks TBS and TNT. Six full seasons of the series were produced in the original run of the series, featuring the voice talents of multiple guest celebrities, including Whoopi Goldberg (Gaia), Meg Ryan (Dr. Blight), Martin Sheen (Sly Sludge), Edward Asner (Hoggish Greedly), James Coburn (Looten Plunder), Dean Stockwell (Duke Nukem) and Sting (Zarm). Winning multiple Environmental Media Awards across its production, Captain Planet and the Planeteers also scored several Daytime Emmy nominations.

Helping the environment is worth the price, but who can or should put a price on it? It’s wonderful that so many are fired up and are willing to pay hard earned cash to save our once beautifully green towns and cities, but can we trust the government to keep good on their word?
People are promoting the carbon tax stating that this will give governments the power and resources to penalize people and polluting companies for making industry and products while making carbon dioxide emissions to stop or atleast greatly suppress them. It is also suggested that this tax will force both people and industry to start introducing greener technology to prevent global environmental catastrophe. For anyone that may not be aware, when you and other mammals breathe we give off carbon dioxide and take in oxygen all day long.
What is this carbon and how does it work in nature? When things are burned, this gives off carbon dioxide and leaves behind carbon. In the case of car exhaust it gives of carbon monoxide, which is even more hazardous. If you burn up most anything living it turns into pure carbon and ash. Humans are carbon based, as are plants. Pure carbon is also used to save mortally intoxicated people and in carbon filters to purify water for drinking. Ash can be used on gardens to add nitrogen back into the soil, and in slashcut farming they burn off a section of land and plant there for a fortified and enriched soil as observed before when this happened naturally in forest fires started by lightning strikes. This is learning from the natural balance.
After we give off this carbon dioxide, the truly green things, plants and vegetation, take in that carbon dioxide and turn it into oxygen to support life. This point of respiration was made prominent in the Captain Planet episode Domes of Doom where a man was legally given control over all of the rainforests. He was crowned a hero and Ma Ti presented him with a wreathe for his head for this heroic act. As he approached him he realized who this was whom took him hostage and then began capping all the rainforests with domes. This man, Mr. Plunder, made everyone pay dearly for oxygen just so they could live and not breathe all the pollution made from their cities. At first this man (who turned out to be Mr. Plunder) was crowned as a worldwide hero, and even the Planeteers were rooting for him before they knew who he was and what he would do with this power.
Captain Planet talked about and confirmed about climate change which we hear about, but they also knew about how this respiration cycle worked and how potentially dangerous it would be if it were controlled by any person. I’ve made it a point to bring forth ways of helping the environment while saving your money, but the current idea of carbon taxing will take more money from you. This could cripple you to putting your personal money into environmental efforts of your personal choice. So the real question becomes, can we trust these people to do what they say with our money? Let’s take a look at some examples.
The water car, the air car, and the car that runs on used vegetable oil (how about that for recycling a good meal?) These are facts, already developed technology. So why aren’t we driving around with this installed? Do you really believe these Hoggish Greedilys want us using clean energy? No, in fact, when you do that, you might be taking your life into your own hands, as many times the Planeteers found out at the hands of eco-villains like the Slaughter family. These are documents and video proofs that these governments and car companies which talk green but are really just mean.
With all these examples of who the big money boys who called “GREEN” are, I am not so certain that their credit scores are deserving of such a loan. The choice is yours, and as the Captain says, The POWER is YOURS!
Last year, I directed a recital concert entitled “Music for the World, Save the Earth”. My vision is to conduct a concert not only to showcase my students’ talents but also, to spread awareness about the current situation of our beloved Mother Earth.
Here is a short video that I presented to my students, with clips and a song in line with that inspiration.
