Resource Wars 40.1
Fracking. Hydro Dams. Pipelines. This is the fight of our lives. Humans have culled and mined resources from our habitats for centuries, but never before has it been so intensive and extensive, nor have we ever been so aware of the looming downside. We know that choosing how to manage, supply and bankroll our natural capital in the age of climate degradation requires so much more than well-rehearsed talking points. The Resource Wars issue investigates the impacts – both ecological and sociological – of this ramped-up resource frenzy, from the tar sands to Canada’s global mining presence. We also explore ways people are fighting back and finding solutions, including nine successful strategies from fracking resisters in New Brunswick and the Beehive Collective's work documenting and supporting opposition to development in Mesoamerica.
