    Tom B.K. Goldtooth – Stopping the Privatization of Nature | Bioneers

    Tom B.K. Goldtooth – Stopping the Privatization of Nature | Bioneers

    The Executive Director of the Indigenous Environmental Network invokes indigenous peoples asking the world to reevaluate our relationship to Mother Earth. We can turn away from destroying, privatizing and commodifying nature, and instead to “indigenuity” to fashion sustainable solutions by re-sacralizing our relationship with Mother Earth.

    This speech was given at the 2013 Bioneers National Conference.

    Report from the Underground (2001) | Paul Stamets

    Report from the Underground (2001) | Paul Stamets

    Paul Stamets, the visionary biologist, mycologist and author of Mycelium Running, reveals astonishing evidence of how nature's solutions surpass our conception of what's possible to radially restore ecosystems and human health.

    "I believe in the natural intelligence of this planet. And if I learned anything in the past several years, its that that precept that I have adopted has led me to some astonishing breakthrough discoveries."

    Sandra Steingraber - The Whole Fracking Enchilada | Bioneers

    Sandra Steingraber - The Whole Fracking Enchilada | Bioneers

    This award-winning author, biologist and environmental health researcher explores the threats to climate and public health from extreme energy extraction including hydraulic fracturing (fracking). From strip-mining of frack sand in Wisconsin that releases carcinogenic silica dust to the deep-well injection of fracking waste in Ohio, which has been linked to earthquakes – these new methods of extracting hydrocarbons are shock-and-awe operations. Of particular interest are the living organisms that inhabit Earth’s deep geological strata. Far from being inert, our nation’s bedrock is an underground “coral reef” of microbes, another invisible ecosystem that’s linked to life in ways not yet fully understood here on the sunlit surface of our planet.

    This speech was given at the 2012 Bioneers National Conference and is featured on the Environmental Justice Vol. 1 Collection.

    The Story of Stuff | Annie Leonard

    The Story of Stuff | Annie Leonard

    The American Dream has come to mean accumulating more and more stuff – and it has been exported worldwide. Yet all the stuff in our lives is taking an enormous toll on the environment, public health, equity, personal happiness and even our sense of citizenship and democracy. Filmmaker-activist Annie Leonard exposes the often hidden costs and provides a hopeful vision for moving beyond the age of stuff. She reframes consumerism and hyper-materialism by encouraging people to jettison their shopping bags without regret, and instead embrace the creation of a livable, joyous, equitable and life-centered world.

    This speech was given at the 2009 Bioneers National Conference and is part of the Environmental Justice Vol. 1 Collection.

    Basins of Relations: A Reverential Rehydration Revolution | Brock Dolman

    Basins of Relations: A Reverential Rehydration Revolution | Brock Dolman

    In this rousing tour-de-force, ecologist Brock Dolman reveals Planet Earth as Watershed Earth. He illustrates how the future lifeboat we’ll need is shaped exactly like our local watershed. All living things are inextricably linked by water and designed around its flow. With lessons from across the globe, he calls for a “rehydration revolution” – water systems based on good science, respect, and widespread community participation. He spins dazzling poetics to show how water-literate human settlement patterns can regenerate ecological integrity and social resiliency to prepare for the climate changes ahead. It’s a mesmerizing performance that gets a standing ovation.

    Report from the Underground (2014)| Paul Stamets

    The renowned mycologist and genius discoverer of immunological and bioremedial properties of mushrooms Paul Stamets unveils his latest breakthrough research. Since our emergence from Africa, mushrooms have represented a thread of knowledge – critical for human survival as medicine, fire portability and the regeneration of forests. His latest epiphany is MycoHoney, made by bees that sip mycelium droplets, which prolongs worker bee longevity, detoxifies the hive, and could prevent colony collapse disorder, as well as our own. Fasten your seat belt.
