Art and Community
Cultural and community expression; and how art can build bridges, heal hurts, and connect us to nature. Summer 2002.
The United States locks up more people than any other country, but that hasn't made us safer. The drug war jails thousands of nonviolent addicts. Taxpayers and poor communities lose as states slash social programs to pay for prisons. There's a better way—compassion, not punishment; restoration, not isolation. It's less costly, more humane—and it works.
Can Animals Save Us?
Too often, we forget the biological truth that humans are an animal species, too. Our culture treats animals as food, pets, pests, property, and curiosities. We’ve spoiled their habitats, endangering tens of thousands of species and our own future. If we learn to understand animals, we can protect and restore the planet we all share.
Can Love Save the World?
We are the ones we have been waiting for! Alternative responses to 9-11, pacifism with teeth, the heart of a Muslim, listening as a subversive act, and a prisoner's spiritual journey. Winter 2002.
Can We Live Without Oil?
The age of oil may well be coming to an end, and the transition will not be easy. Will we choose to do what needs to be done? Fall 2004.
Changing The Climate
Signs of an increasingly chaotic climate are turning up in flooded towns, melting ice caps, starving wildlife, and overheated cities. Scientists are warning us—the time to act is now. Winter 2000.
Cities of Exuberance
Diverse, green, beautiful cities—reclaim the streets and revitalize your community. Summer 1999.
Who's stepping up to the climate challenge? Learn about getting past denial, creative direct action, global climate justice, carbon-neutral cities, transition towns and more. Winter 2010.
NASA climate scientist Jim Hansen says we have 10 years to turn global warming trends around. The question now is what can we do—that is up to the scale of the crisis? This issue of YES! shows that solutions are within reach. Spring 2008.
