Its appearance is very recent - within the last 90 years - in evolutionary terms, a blip in time. Beginning in Canada but by no means ending there, the story of how it came to be is an extraordinary tale of how quickly adaptation and evolution can occur, especially…

Ten years ago, Hurricane Katrina devastated the coast of Louisiana. Five years later, the Deepwater Horizon exploded and spilled more than 200 million gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico, the worst ecologic disaster in North American history. Amazingly, those aren't the worst things facing Louisiana's coastline today. It is that the state is fast disappearing through coastal erosion caused largely by oil and gas industry activity. A follow-up to the 2010 film "SoLa: Louisiana Water Stories," this new…

"Lobster War" is an award-winning feature documentary about the conflict between the United States and Canada over waters that both countries have claimed since the end of the Revolutionary War. The disputed 277 square miles of sea, known as the Gray Zone, were traditionally fished by U.S. lobstermen. But as the Gulf of Maine has warmed faster than nearly any other body of water on the planet, the Gray Zone’s previously modest lobster population has surged, and with it, discord…

Biophilic Design is an innovative way of designing the places where we live, work, and learn.

The recent trend in green architecture has decreased the environmental impact of the built environment, but it has accomplished little in the way of reconnecting us to the natural world, the missing piece in…
