EARTH ACTION VIDEO SERIES
The Earth Action Video series is a new, engaging, and informative multimedia production funded and produced by Earth Ethics, Inc. This five-part series encourages fundamental changes in the way that individual’s think and behave in regards to environmental issues. We provide the viewer with unbiased, informative material that promotes critical thinking and basic environmental literacy to make environmentally conscious lifestyle decisions.
Global Climate Change and You
A summary of the science behind climate change and the predicted impacts on northwest Florida and other parts of the US; visit beaches and wetlands altered by sea level rise and other areas affected by weather pattern changes/fluctuations (increased earthquakes, tornadoes, etc), learn how nature responds to climate change (including terrestrial, aquatic, and species impacts), and find out more about ways to reduce our carbon footprint.
Building Better Communities
Visit local neighborhoods that showcase healthier, more environmentally friendly ways of living. See how residents can walk or ride a bicycle to meet many of their daily needs, visit community gardens and parks that provide local food and recreation, and learn how traditional architecture and neighborhood design save energy and resources.
What’s Happening to our Beaches?
While humans often get worried when they see our beaches erode and change, we must understand that our beaches have been in flux for thousands of years and in fact must shift and move in order to be healthy. Learn more about the natural processes of erosion and accretion, how barrier islands “roll” over themselves to survive a rising sea, and how hurricanes actually benefit beaches and barrier islands. Learn how beach renourishment can actually be a detriment to existing benthic communities and why building on barrier islands is not a good idea.
Local Food and the Environment
Where does the food we eat come from? Locally grown and harvested foods help connect us to our local region, support our local economy, and need less energy to get to our table. Visit local farmers and fishermen and sit down with a group of friends as they enjoy a delicious and healthy meal featuring local foods.
Energy and You
Take a trip through a typical day to learn where we use the most energy in our daily lives. See how the energy we use is produced; learn where it comes from, the environmental impacts, and how alternative forms of energy offer the promise of a clean energy future.
