We are now living in the Age of Water. Water is the new “gold”, with individuals, corporations and countries positioning themselves around this precious resource. Water is changing everything. We cover anything of interest from breaking environmental news to evergreen material. This also includes human interest stories, readings of eco-literature, discussion of film and other media productions of interest.

Join the discussion!


We join old-growth forest lover and adventurer Ira Sutherland in Vancouver, where he talks about his research on historical dynamics of forested landscapes across BC and the unprecedented natural disturbances the world is facing today.
