TERRA 451: Cascading Effects PREVIEW

Examining the sublime landscapes of North Cascade, Mount Rainier, and Olympic National Parks, researchers shed light on emerging indications that climate change is real and predict how warming temperatures will affect the natural resources and timeless beauty of the region. As glaciers melt and the winter snow-pack decreases, what is the fate of the aquatic ecosystems and cold water fish that depend on runoff during the hottest and driest parts of the year? How will enormous amounts of unstable sediment exposed by retreating ice-sheets on Mount Rainier affect the roads and infrastructure of that park and beyond? Will pine beetle infestations and larger forest fires become widespread in the approaching future?

TERRA 431: Crazy Dream PREVIEW

Steve Titus has what he calls a 'hobby gone awry.’ His solo garage project, self-funded and self-improvised, is to change the world by designing the ‘Solar Bug’ – a prototype for a combination ATV and solar electric car. Steve joins a long lineage of tinkerers, experimenters, and resourceful inventors who have pioneered ideas in their backyard pursuit of a more sustainable and society. The ultimate message is this: if you are passionate about an idea, start today, don’t hold back, and leave your naysayers in the dust.
