Hollywood celebrities and respected journalists span the globe to explore the issues of climate change and cover intimate stories of human triumph and tragedy.
Marcin Gerwin: With temperatures rising and changing weather patterns, agriculture will most certainly feel the effects of climate change. Do you think permaculture has the potential to help farmers to deal with the changing climate? Patrick Whitefield: One specific way in which permaculture can tackle climate change is through diversity, which we emphasize. In terms… Read more »
When people say we should adapt to climate change, do they have any idea what that means? To understand what is happening to the living planet, the great conservationist Aldo Leopold remarked, is to live “in a world of wounds … An ecologist must either harden his shell and make believe that the consequences of… Read more »
Fractured Country — An Unconventional Invasion (Duration: 40 minutes) This is madness. This is sickening (and not just figuratively). It makes me feel ashamed to be a member of the human race. Please watch, and share widely. We must stop this….
Corrupt, irrational, destructive, counter-productive: this scarcely begins to describe our farming policy. Soil erosion in a maize field.
