Friends of Resurgence
January/February 2013

Welcome front cover
The Tipping Point

To start the New Year we take on the big challenges and the big obstacles, starting with the oil industry and what we’re really up against. Environmentalist Lester Brown asks whether it is too late to avoid a complete breakdown in the food industry and we feature Sebastião Salgado’s new exhibition on our disappearing wilderness.

The January/February 2013 issue brings together change-makers working to restore the balance and presents practical solutions to tackle our environmental crisis: local currency initiatives, renewable energy strategies, national schemes to restore land to wildlands in the Netherlands and more.

The articles in this issue demonstrate that ‘Change isn’t easy, but it is possible’. As we enter 2013, we offer an optimistic view of the future — where protecting the environment is seen not just as an economic imperative, but as a moral imperative for all.

Here’s a selection of articles and new features from the January/February issue, with links to articles that you can read online. Read more: www.resurgence.org/magazine/

Future of EnergyThe Future of Energy

Bibi van der Zee looks at the challenges ahead for energy policy and discovers there is no excuse for Britain — still struggling with an energy system built for the 1950s — not to construct a greener energy system fit for the 21st century. The technology is all in place, all that is lacking is political will.

Wild HopeWild Hope

To redress the damage being done to Nature, we need awareness of hard facts and a hefty dose of optimism, backed up with a plan of action on a national scale. Mark Cocker looks at an ambitious scheme in the Netherlands that is giving land back to Nature.

In his new exhibition Genesis, Brazilian photographer Sebastião Salgado has captured the last truly wild places on the planet. Arts writer, India Windsor-Clive discovers a message of hope behind his all-seeing lens. Salgado's photographs and vision demonstrate the power of images to change the way we see the world.
