Its Earth Week! What are your book/article/movie suggestions for all the issues surrounding environmentalism

It's Earth Week!

We thought a fun way to get the conversation going around the environmental issues and outlying factors presented by Earth Week would be to have babblers list their favourite books/movies/articles/websites that address these issues.

Earth Week, beginning today April 16 and ending with Earth Day on April 22, is supposed to be a time of positive action and results, and what better way to achieve awareness than for babblers to discuss what issues are important to them, and what mediums have affected and enriched their knowledge on those issues.

Seed libraries

Members of the Hudson Valley Seed Library, who have grown from 60 at the start to nearly 700 now, pay a $20 annual fee for 10 seed packs of their choice. The library offers 130 heirloom plant varieties, 50 of which come from locally produced seeds like Hank’s X-tra Special Baking Bean. Mr. Greene has high hopes for replenishing those seed stocks this year. The long, dry summer provided ideal seed-saving weather, he said; last year, partly due to the wet, chilly summer, only 10 percent of members sent back seeds. He should know by the end of November if his hopes have been realized.

The Un-Natural Gas Boom: A Bridge to Nowhere

I'll admit I wasn't fully aware of the scale of the un-natural gas boom until I arrived at an indigenous-led blockade of seven proposed gas pipelines. The Unist'ot'en camp was built in the path of the proposed Pacific Trails Pipelines by a group of grassroots Wet'suwet'en people who oppose the incursion onto their unceded territory. Coincidently, the same pipeline right-of-way was originally planned to be used for the Enbridge pipeline, that is until the Unist'ot'en built their clan cabin on the banks of the Wedzin Kwa (colonial name: Morice River).

Why Doesn't Mountain Equipment Co-op Really Support the Environment

Over a year ago I encouraged MEC to adopt a concept that would raise more $$$ by far for environmental organizations throughout Canada, than any other effort.

At this writing, one of Canada's largest corporations is considering the concept for ALL of Canada's charities. A humongous granting foundation in the US is considering the implementationn for hundreds of charities in Canada, US and UK and a major US corporation is considering the implementation for hundreds of charities.
