Into the Wild: Constructing Wilderness
 
06:22
A brief environmental video essay that analyzes the movie Into the Wild. I specifically look at how Sean Penn's fictionalized Chris McCandless envisions and constructs wilderness via two pathways. The first is through a binary between wild nature and society. The second is a characterization of wilderness as a place of transcendence--a construction that pulls heavily from the works of Thoreau and Emerson.

Biomimicry is more than just good design.

How Cuban agriculture went from industrial to sustainable
 
06:53
In this Our Changing Climate environmental video essay, I look at the history of Cuban sustainable agriculture and farming. Specifically, I look at why sustainable and organic methods, such as urban farms and market gardens, proliferated in Cuban farming, and what that might mean for farmers markets and local food systems in countries like the United States. Some of the principles of Cuban agriculture could be used to build a system in opposition to our current industrial food and factory farm system.

Cook et al 2013 has come under increased scrutiny over the last couple years, and has some critical flaws. That being said, the results of multiple surveys of different size and method point to a growing consensus that climate change is real and very likely human caused. You can read more on Cook et al and scientific consensus on climate change here: https://hiizuru.wordpress.com/2014/09/03/campaign-of-deception/ As well as here: http://www.factcheck.org/2015/09/santorums-climate-consensus-claims/ 2. There is still debate on what exactly caused the mass extinction at the end of the Permian period. Theories point to a large meteor strike, volcanic eruption, or runaway greenhouse emissions as the leading cause of death. (Also, I mistakenly implied that ice core records go back 250 million years. They don't. Ice records really only go back 800,000 years.)

Why we need more cultural landscapes.
 
05:45
In this Our Changing Climate environmental video essay, I take a look at the concept of cultural landscapes. I specifically look at how the integration of natural landscapes and human landscapes can create a deep tradition of reverence for the local environment. Cultural landscapes might just offer viable alternatives to industrial agricultural and cultural systems that often overlook the health of the land.
