Stop the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline.

In Canada’s boreal forest, the Peace-Athabasca Delta is a haven for millions of migratory birds—a vast nesting ground for millions of America’s backyard songbirds. It’s no place for even more tar sands development, which is already poisoning the boreal forest’s rivers and lakes.

Tar sands development has been called the “most destructive project on earth” because of the excessive global warming pollution it produces and the way its toxic mining operations devastate the boreal forest and wetlands that serve as breeding grounds for migratory birds. If this destruction continues at the projected rate, as many as 166 million birds, including future generations, could be permanently lost.

Don’t mind life without the sound of singing birds?

You might find the threat to millions of Americans’ drinking water concerning.

I Am

“I AM” is the story of a successful Hollywood director Tom Shadyac, who experienced a life threatening head injury, and his ensuing journey to try and answer two very basic questions, “What’s wrong with our world?” and “What can we do about it?”. Tom visits some of today’s great minds, including authors, poets, teachers, religious leaders and scientists searching for the fundamental problem that causes all of the other problems, while simultaneously reflecting on his own life choices of excess, greed, and eventual healing.

Antibiotics were first massed-produced in the 1940s. Their ability to fight and kill bacteria revolutionized medicine and had profound effects on everything from agriculture to war. After less than 80 years, however, these miracle drugs are failing. Resistant infections kill hundreds of thousands of people around the world each year, and there are now dozens of so-called Superbugs each with its own challenges and costs. How did this happen? Using microscopic footage, harrowing personal stories, and expert insights RESISTANCE clarifies the problem of antibiotic resistance, how we got to this point, and what we can do to turn the tide.
