Sea Change Radio Interview with Jason Mark, the editor of Earth Island Journal on the Wilderness Act

We hear an episode of Sea Change Radio featuring a wild discussion with Jason Mark, the editor of Earth Island Journal, as we honor the 50th anniversary of the passing of the Wilderness Act of 1964. Mark shares his misgivings about what he views to be a technological threat to some of nature's most mysterious spots and how much of our wild is already pretty tame. Then, he and host Alex Wise delve into conservation policy and talk about the surprising number of bipartisan conservation bills that unsurprisingly have not yet been passed by Congress.

Living on the Ice Shelf, Humanity's Melt Down

Host Per Fagereng interviews Mike Davis, author of Planet of Slums and In Praise of Barbarians.

He discusses his latest article, "Living on the Ice Shelf, Humanity's Melt Down".

Davis says, "Our world, our old world that we have inhabited for the last 12,000 years, has
ended, even if no newspaper in North America or Europe has yet printed its
scientific obituary. This February, while cranes were hoisting cladding to the
141st floor of the Burj Dubai tower (which will soon be twice the height of the
Empire State Building), the Stratigraphy Commission of the Geological Society of
London was adding the newest and highest story to the geological column."

It turns out that the Holocene -- that recent inter-glacial warm interval
when we made ourselves at home on this planet -- is so all over. Welcome to the
Anthropocene, an Earth epoch defined by the emergence of urban-industrial
society as a geological force -- and get used to it.

In this post, Davis considers just how dire things are on our small,
warming planet (dire indeed!) and lays out in no uncertain terms just why those
who are hoping to rely on market mechanisms and carbon trading as a solution to
global warming are bound to be deeply disappointed.
