The Glassy-Winged Sharpshooter
 
28:25
California's multi-billion dollar agriculture industry is threatened by a new insect pest. The glassy-winged sharpshooter feeds on a wide variety of ornamental and crop plants, but it is of particular concern to the grape industry. The insect spreads Xylella fastidiosa, the bacterium that spreads Pierce's disease. Pierce's disease kills grapevines and there are no effective treatments for it. UC researchers describe what is at stake and the steps that are being taken to combat the problem.

Rescuing Our Resources Trailer
 
03:57
RESCUING OUR RESOURCES is a 25-minute documentary dealing with the preservation of our endangered natural resources by reducing consumption, reusing resources that are already compromised and recycling to eliminate the use and further depletion of our precious resources. The State of California's efforts in diverting trash from landfills and proactive use of recycled materials is explored as well as the views of California environmental activists. The documentary showcases a company currently using "trash" to make decking that will last indefinitely -- ultimately preserving our forests. Also highlighted is a municipality that takes their green waste and turns it into fertilizer to feed and nourish new trees, plants and lawns at the same time diverting tons of green waste from landfills. The American dream for one family was built on trash at Modesto Junk, Inc. Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., a fervent environmental activist, presents his global views on how the United States can use other nations as examples for ways of reducing and preserving resources and explains actions he believes we need to take in our efforts for preservation of our resources."

"High quality water is more than the dream of the conservationists, more than a political slogan; high quality water, in the right quantity at the right place at the right time, is essential to health, recreation, and economic growth." - Richard Bangs and Christian Kallen, Rivergods, 1985 The 2007 Water Resources Conference is the first event in the spectrum of activity being undertaken by the newly formed Auburn University Water Resources Center, part of the Natural Resources Management & Development Institute at Auburn University. Through outreach initiatives like the Conference, it is our hope to facilitate the critically needed, visionary changes necessary to protect freshwater quality and quantity throughout the state and nation. http://www.nrmdi.auburn.edu/water/

Successes and Failures in California Water Regulation Gary Wolff, Vice Chair, California State Water Resources Control Board Water is the lifeblood of California. Without it, the landscape we know today would not exist. Throughout Californias history, water has been a source of food, commerce, energy, and recreation. It makes possible the bountiful Central Valley farms and the vibrant coastal cities. It has inspired countless poets and painters. Californians have simultaneously fought over water, marveled at its beauty, and - through impressive feats of engineering - moved it hundreds of miles. The popular lecture series, the California Colloquium on Water, continues. Scholars of distinction in the fields of natural sciences, engineering, social sciences, humanities, law and environmental design will offer monthly lectures. These lectures are designed to increase the understanding and appreciation among students, faculty and the general public of water resources and to contribute to informed decisions about water in California. http://lib.berkeley.edu/WRCA/

Public Lands in the US - Huey Johnson
 
02:57
Complete video at: http://fora.tv/2008/10/03/Huey_Johnson_Green_Planning_at_Nation_Scale Environmentalist and Resource Renewal Institute founder Huey Johnson charges U.S. politicians with exploiting the use of public lands, especially in western states. ----- Huey Johnson addresses the Long Now Foundation on October 3, 2008. Green Plans, said Johnson, are government-run environmental programs that rise to the scale and longevity of environmental problems. Instead of acting piecemeal, they are comprehensive, systemic, integrated, and accountable. Instead of pursuing an energy policy, an air policy, and a water policy separately, you have to have one policy that covers them all. He singled out three shining examples of how to make Green Plans work -- Holland, New Zealand, and California’s Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 (AB 32) - Stewart Brand Huey D. Johnson is the founder and president of the Resource Renewal Institute (RRI), a nonprofit organization that incubates ideas and practices for environmental sustainability. He is a leading voice for Green Plans, a comprehensive and integrated approach to protecting and managing natural resources in use by the European Union and a growing number of countries. From 1976-1982, Johnson served as Secretary of Resources for the State of California where he conceived and implemented "Investing for Prosperity," a hundred-year plan for managing the state's natural resources. An avid hunter and fisherman, Johnson has written extensively on urban hunting. He is active in national and international organizations dedicated to conservation.

The Urban Homestead California Heartland (PBS)
 
04:54
Jules Dervaes and his three adult children all live and work together on their family farm in Pasadena, CA. They call themselves, eco-pioneers. They say its a homegrown revolution that's taking place, a way for them to get back to a more natural, organic and better way of life. Their mission? To change the world one urban backyard at a time. California Heartlands Jennifer Quinonez visits the Dervaes home where at the helm is Jules, a man whose vision wasn't so clear 23 years ago when he bought the 1917 California bungalow for his family. All he knew was that the cost of keeping of a green, but barely usable front yard, was a waste of money and resources. He began taking action and made a shift in the way he lives in an urban city. By clearing out the grass and planting an edible garden, the change began. In 1991, Jules discovered a way to profit from his garden. Area teahouses were in need for his edible flowers, and that's when he realized he could make money out of his hobby. But biggest change in his life happened in 2001. When buying organic food became too expensive and difficult to find, and genetically altered food started hitting the market, Jules took matters into his own hands and began Path to Freedom. At this little urban homestead in the big city, the family produces 6,000 pounds of organic produce a year. Its amazing that their home is on a 1/5 acre and their garden is only on 1/10 acre! The front yard is 95% edible and the rest of the main planters are in the backyard. Every corner is used to grow food. Jules says he doesn't need more space; he just needs to be a smarter gardener. He looks to the Japanese and Europeans for guidance, those who for thousands of years have had to grow food in a small space. In his garden, or micro-farm as he prefers, you'll find more than 350 different vegetables, herbs, fruits, and berries. In addition to planning crops, the family is truly living an eco friendly lifestyle. They are proud that their energy usage is only 6.5 kilowatt hours a day, and continues to decrease. They make their own biodiesel for their one truck and they also have an outdoor shower for summertime use. This is now a full-time job for Jules and his three children, who sell their produce to area restaurants. They've also expanded into education outreach, started an online store to sell garden & eco-friendly materials and are making it their goal to get people to change their attitude about food. They say, Food is power, the more we grow ourselves, the better. Footage Courtesy KVIE California Heartland http://www.californiaheartland.org/this_season/episode_908/path_to_freedom.htm
