"When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe." - John Muir
We have come across some interesting and informative videos on the natural world that we hope others will watch and share with family and friends.
Although many of us these days are living and growing up in urban environments, it's important to remain close to the natural world. Educate ourselves and our children on the cycle of life and remember that nature is ever present, working in connection to everything.
All videos on the Sustainable Human youtube channel are "offered as a gift to humanity with the sole intention of telling new stories that encourage behaviors that promote a more sustainable way of life."
How Wolves Changed Rivers
When wolves were reintroduced to Yellowstone National Park in the United States after being absent nearly 70 years, the most remarkable "trophic cascade" occurred. What is a trophic cascade and how exactly do wolves change rivers? George Monbiot explains in this movie remix.
How Whales Change Climate
When whales were at their historic populations, before their numbers were reduced, it seems that whales might have been responsible for removing tens of millions of tones of carbon from the atmosphere every year. Whales change the climate. The return of the great whales, if they are allowed to recover, could be seen as a benign form of geo-engineering. It could undo some of the damage we have done, both to the living systems of the sea, and to the atmosphere.
