Tribulations d’un précaire est un récit écrit à la première personne. Avec un regard acéré et décalé sur le monde du #travail, l’auteur relate avec un humour noir et décapant les petits boulots qu’il a été amené à exercer aux États-Unis pour survivre, après un passage dans l’armée et un diplôme de lettres. Aucune des compétences acquises ne lui servira jamais… Ni pour transporter câbles et cafés lors du tournage d’un film underground, découper des poissons dans un supermarché de luxe, remplir des cuves de fuel ou conduire un camion de déménagement... Ni pour les travaux de forçat en #Alaska aux côtés de travailleurs immigrés.

TERRA 716: Chasing Birds in Beringia

Enter into the ultra-adventurous world of bush-pilot biologists chasing wild birds in the no-man's-land north of the Arctic Circle. Their world is one of beauty, grit, humor and science. The tundra swans they study venture back and forth across the narrow stretch of water that separates Alaska and Russia. This east-west connection is what endangers the birds, and potentially the humans that interact with them. (Winner of the Science Award, Imagine Science Film Festival 2011)

TERRA 620: TRUST Series #2

TRUST is a 10-part series about a perfect trifecta. The Public Trust Doctrine is a legal doctrine enshrined in the laws of every civilized government and holds governments accountable to protect the resources we share in common and depend on for our very survival. The principle of inter-generational justice is enshrined in international human rights law ? simply put, it means that the adults can't have a party on the planet and leave it a mess for the kids. Combine the Public Trust Doctrine with the principles of intergenerational justice and passionate youth, who are fighting for their future in the courts and on the streets, and we have the perfect trifecta. Why? Because youth across the country are bringing legal actions - based on trust - against the federal and state governments, so we will open our eyes and protect our atmosphere and our futures with smart strategies rooted in science. In Part 2 of the TRUST Series, meet Nelson Kanuk, a 17-year old who learned how climate change was affecting his community and felt he could best help by sharing his story. In this 8-minute film, Nelson explains that the main problem facing the northern parts of the world is that winter is coming later and later. This results in increased erosion due to permafrost melt, increased flooding due to warmer temperatures, and intensified storms because the sea ice forms later in the season and is unable to provide a natural barrier for our coastal communities. This, in turn, leads in the loss of homes, communities, cultures, and a way of life. Go to http://ourchildrenstrust.org/ to learn more about the campaign.

TERRA 534: Hindsight and Foresight - 20 Years After the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill

In light of the recent catastrophe in the Gulf Coast region, it seems appropriate to re-visit the previous disaster of the Exxon Valdez oil spill in Alaska. This film, produced by NOAA, takes a look at the past 20 years of recovery and persisting environmental effects in Prince William Sound. What does this film tell us about the consequences of the present BP oil drilling disaster in the Gulf Coast region and what can we learn from it?
