The Age of Sustainable Development, an online course by Professor Jeffrey Sachs, is a wonderful introduction and overview of WHY we need the sixth Kondratiev Wave to be a wave of sustainable technologies. In Prof. Sachs words, we need to find ways to produce energy, ways to mobilize energy, ways to transport ourselves and transport goods that take the massive pressure and the destructive forces off of our ecosystems. This is the great challenge ahead of us, and this course is an amazing way to better understand this challenge!
This is a great explainer video by The Conservation Fund on land-based fish farming. 90% of US seafood is currently imported and 2x the current supply will be needed by 2050, so there is a growing need for new ways to provide high-quality, local fish without putting more pressure on our oceans. Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RAS) is one solution.
ARTIFISHAL is a Patagonia film about man’s disastrous approach to Nature, including river dams & open-water fish-farms, that are leading to the weakening and extinction of species. I believe that Sustainable Fish Farms are one of the important steps needed to protect our wild fish!
The Ivory Game is an undercover documentary by Paul Allen’s Vulcan Productions that exposes the ugly world of ivory trading. I first saw African elephants in 1983 in Kenya and was moved by their majestic presence. Even today I try to pay my respect to their plight by honoring them within my logo.
