This beautiful and disturbing film recounts America's story from the environment's point of view. From the arrival of Columbus to the simple wilderness living of the 16th and 17th centuries, through the agrarian lifestyle of the 18th century, the changes from the Industrial Revolution, to the 20th century when most of the planet's resources have been depleted -- this film examines the North American landscape and all the wildlife destruction, deforestation, soil depletion and pollution that have been wrought to make the American Dream come true.

A funny animation depicting the relationship between media gadgets and mining.
From Films for Action: "Hidden beneath sleek, space-age screens and shining metal, the true cost of our gadgets lurks unseen… Have you ever felt like we're living through a nightmare of consumption? That you wish you could un-hook yourself and reconnect with a life that is somehow more real and vivid? Then perhaps you're ready to heed Earth's Wake Up Call. "Today we live in a time when there is little to no understanding of how the goods we consu...

Looks like an excellent compilation of essays trying to develop a new language and theory to challenge the prevailing paradigm. The video gives a nice summary and overview.
"We live in an era of stagnation, rapid impoverishment, rising inequalities and socio-ecological disasters. In the dominant discourse, these are effects of economic crisis, lack of growth or underdevelopment. This book argues that growth is the cause of these problems and that it has become uneconomic, ecologically unsustainable and intrinsically unjust."

"Here's some good news: According to a new study, the major broadcast news networks are covering climate change more than they have in years. Now here's the bad news: Much of that coverage includes misleading arguments from commentators who reject the scientific consensus that humans are warming the planet."

"CNN and Fox News repeatedly reported on the Keystone XL pipeline without connecting it to a major oil spill near the pipeline's proposed route. By contrast, MSNBC and others in the media have reported on the spill, which occurred in the Yellowstone River in Montana, in the context of concerns about Keystone XL's environmental risks."

Republicans--who invented the term climate change--well know that language frames the way we think about the world. Just as the NYTImes had to change the term "enhanced interrogation" to "torture," now it's time we no longer allow "climate deniers" to be called "skeptics." Skepticism implies some thoughtful critique, when in fact the term's usage masks an ideological position.
"A group of scientists, science professionals and skeptic activists released a letter tothe public late last week demanding that news outlets and media stop calling climate change deniers skeptics.A press release from the Center for Skeptical Inquiry (CSI) said that 48 of the center’s Fellows — including Bill “The Science Guy” Nye, Cosmos co-producer Ann Druyan, physicist Lawrence Krauss and others — are requesting that the word “skeptic” be used...

An unusual connection between the environment and surveillance: Utah's water supply is needed to cool all the servers powering the NSA's data center.
In Utah, the Bluffdale Data Center will require 1.7 million gallons of water every single day to operate - keep computers cool. That water is being provided by the State of Utah.  They can TURN IT OFF! learn more here: http://offnow.org

The scary strategy developed by the world's biggest PR firm to help TransCanada's pipeline gain popular support through astroturfing.
Edelman runs software called the Grassroots Multiplier that it claims can "convert average citizens" into pro-oil "true champions."
