A New Way of Living:  An Intro to the Earthship Concept
 
03:43
Architect Michael Reynold's radical experimentation in sustainable living has created a new type of housing: self-sufficient housing made from recycled materials. We are running out of oil, running out of water, for many reasons we need a different direction. Earthships offer more than an enhanced quality of life. With no power lines, no water lines, and no sewage lines, this method of living allows people to take care of themselves.

The Health Impacts of Coal
 
03:49
Polluting our air, water, and land, coal production and usage profoundly affects our environment. Clean air, clean water - our birthright? This previews the documentary: Burning the Future: Coal in America directed by David Novack. This compelling documentary explores the effects the nation's coal dependency has on the residents of the Appalachian states, a region plagued by toxic water, devastating floods and disappearing mountain ranges. Novack's cameras observe West Virginian activists mount a seemingly impossible battle against the U.S. government-backed coal industry to save their families, their communities and their way of life.

Tar Sands Oil Extraction - The Dirty Truth
 
11:39
Environmental devastation of the land, water, and air - the largest industrial energy project in the world is extracting crude oil from bitumen found beneath the pristine boreal forest of Alberta, Canada. Effecting a land mass equivalent in size to Florida or England, Both industry and government are putting money before the health and security of its people and the environment. Tar sands take 3 barrels of water to process every barrel of oil extracted. Ninety percent of this water becomes so toxic that it must be stored in tailing ponds. Unfortunately these ponds regularly leach pollution into the third largest watershed in the world. Water depletion, exploitation, privatization and contamination has become one of the most important issues facing humanity this century. Check out my other video on water issues: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XMmpg35Bym0 and see my other videos to learn about the dark side of fossil fuels.

05:55
The surprising, and often shocking truths about what we eat, how it's produced, and the effect it has on our health and our communities. This essential information summarizes the world's industrial food system brought about by the 'green revolution'. Highlighting the resource intensive system based upon cheap oil, our current food system generates numerous problems in order to provide us with the cheap food we currently enjoy.

Peak Oil:  The Basics of Oil Depletion in 5 minutes
 
05:33
This essential information summarizes Peak Oil through interviews with Richard Heinberg, Paul Roberts, Gerald Cecil, Otis Graham, Jeremy Rifkin, James Howard Kunstler, Jerry Mander, and a cameo from Jimmy Carter. According to many sources, oil production stagnated in 2005 resulting in increasing oil prices. World economic growth now struggles to match the limitations of crude oil production as we experience the largest economic downturn since the Great Depression. The US military reports that the world will experience severe shortages beginning between 2012 to 2015. Read their report at: http://www.jfcom.mil/newslink/storyar...

Sustainability 101:  Exponential Growth - Arithmetic, Population and Energy (Full - Updated)
 
59:12
Dr. Albert Bartlett discusses the implications of unending growth on economies, population, and resources. Presented at UBC on 5/19/2011. This compelling lecture is easy to pay attention to and gives a basic introduction to the arithmetic of steady growth, including an explanation of the concept of doubling time. He explains the impact of unending steady growth on population. He then examines the consequences steady growth in a finite environment and observes this growth as applied to fossil fuel consumption, the lifetimes of which are much shorter than the optimistic figures most often quoted. He proceeds to examine oddly reassuring statements from "experts", the media and political leaders - statements that are dramatically inconsistent with the facts. He discusses the widespread worship of economic growth and population growth in western society. Professor Bartlett explains "sustainability" in the context of the First Law of Sustainability: "You cannot sustain population growth and / or growth in the rates of consumption of resources. This 1708th presentation of this matierial by Dr. Bartlett brings the listener to understand and appreciate the implications of unending growth on a finite planet, and closes noting the crucial need for education on this topic. Professor Bartlett has given this celebrated one-hour lecture beginning in September, 1969, to audiences with an average attendance of 80 in the United States and world-wide. His audiences have ranged from junior high school and college students to corporate executives and scientists, and to congressional staffs. For more information, see http://www.AlBartlett.org .

Crude:  The $8.6 Billion Verdict Against Chevron for Polluting Ecuador
 
05:05
Dumping billions of gallons of toxic waste into the Amazon, Texaco (now Chevron) has been ordered to pay $8 billion to clean up its environmental pollution of reckless oil drilling and restore human rights for the 30,000 affected peoples. Chevron REFUSES to pay the verdict of this 18 year long lawsuit - reflecting the true nature of corporate accountability in the fossil fuel industry. "Chevron's strategy in recent years has been, 'we'll bleed the plaintiffs dry,' " said Robert Percival, director of the environmental law program at the University of Maryland. " 'The plaintiffs will run out of money, and we'll be able to settle really cheaply, or they'll just go away.' " (sfgate.com) Read more at: http://amazonwatch.org/news/2011/0214-ecuadoran-court-slaps-chevron-with-8-billion-fine Crude is a must-watch documentary by Joe Berlinger that exposes the true dangers of oil extraction. Everyone should know this information. Please support the filmmakers. Fossil fuel extraction is common world wide and massively pollutes our fresh water supplies and our environment (see my other videos for the impact of other fossil fuels and more on the world wide water crisis).

Gasland:  Dangers of Natural Gas Extraction (Extended Trailer)
 
10:59
The true costs in health and environmental pollution of hydraulic fracturing are exposed in this amazing documentary by Josh Fox. Everyone needs to know this information. Please support the filmmakers. Visit the website, learn the facts, sign petitions, contact your elected officials, share your story. Buy the DVD for everyone you know. Original Trailer at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dZe1AeH0Qz8 Hydraulic fracturing is common world wide, not just in America, and massively pollutes our fresh water supplies (see my other video on: Water - The Basics of Use, Pollution, and Our Health at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XMmpg35Bym0 ). "The largest domestic natural gas drilling boom in history has swept across the United States. The Halliburton-developed drilling technology of "fracking" or hydraulic fracturing has unlocked a "Saudia Arabia of natural gas" just beneath us. But is fracking safe? When filmmaker Josh Fox is asked to lease his land for drilling, he embarks on a cross-country odyssey uncovering a trail of secrets, lies and contamination." Natural gas extraction is regulated but with numerous exemptions such as such as: 42 USC 300h(d)(1)(B) [underground injection - exemption for fracturing fluid]. You can check out a US Senate report (released in April 2011) on the chemical contents of these frac'ing fluids at: http://democrats.energycommerce.house.gov/sites/default/files/documents/Hydraulic%20Fracturing%20Report%204.18.11.pdf "An estimated 30% to 70% of the frac'ing fluid will resurface, bringing back with it toxic substances that are naturally present in underground oil and gas deposits, as well as the chemicals used in the frac'ing fluid."

05:36
A look at the planet's water, how it's being used, and the increasing strains on this vital resource. In every corner of the globe, we are polluting, diverting, pumping, and wasting our limited supply of fresh water at an exponential rate as population and technology grows, resulting in the desertification of the earth. We must begin to manage our water more efficiently and keep our limited freshwater supplies pure. Learn about your local watershed. Find out who owns your water. Take control of your water. Discover how industry pollutes local water sources in my other videos: Health Effects of Coal and Gasland: Dangers of Natural Gas Extraction.
