Into the Cold by Sebastian Copeland
Static Preview

(Movie Trailer) The absolute top of the earth is a place few try to reach on foot. Even fewer succeed. With the vast arctic ice vanishing rapidly, photographer, extreme adventurer, and environmental advocate Sebastian Copeland sets out to reach the North Pole on the centennial of Admiral Peary's reach in 1909. This inspiring documentary follows their tumultuous two-month trek—not just through piercing cold and merciless terrain, but straight into the depths of the soul. Visit the film site to buy the DVD.

 

It will give you the chills and, at the same time, help support the SEDNA Foundation and Global Green USA.

Human Behavior and Climate Change by Dr. Shahzeen Attari 2 of 2
Static Preview

Dr. Shahzeen Attarti discusses her findings regarding public perceptions of energy consumption. She notes that, contrary to the findings of researchers, the public tends to view energy curtailment rather than efficiency as the better means of reducing energy consumption. Dr. Attari notes that the public tends to make small overestimates regarding energy expenditures associated with low-energy behaviors and large underestimates for those associated with large-energy behaviors. Dr. Attari mentions factors shown to correlate with accuracy of prediction. Presented at the Garrison Institute's Climate, Buildings and Behavior Symposium, May 2010.

Prosperity without Growth 2 of 2 by Tim Jackson
Static PreviewIs our economy fit for purpose in a low carbon world? Can economic growth deliver us from the threat of catastrophic climate change, or is it the engine thats driving us relentlessly towards it?

Speaking today at a high-level debate in central London to mark the publication of his controversial new book Prosperity without Growth, Tim Jackson argues that building a new economic model fit for a low carbon world is the most urgent task of our times.

The current model isnt working, says Prof Jackson, a top sustainability adviser to the UKs four governments. Instead of delivering widespread prosperity, our economies are undermining wellbeing in the richest nations and failing those in the poorest. The prevailing system has already led us to the brink of economic collapse and if left unchecked it threatens a climate catastrophe.

Prosperity without Growth substantially updates Jacksons groundbreaking report for the Sustainable Development Commission. Launched earlier this year to great acclaim, the report rapidly became the most downloaded document in the Commissions nine year history and in recent weeks has contributed to a burgeoning debate about economic growth and its consequences for people and planet.
