Pacific NW Environmental Video Channel

Changing the Course is a short story about Joe Whitworth, one of the leading minds on freshwater conservation. His appreciation for water grew at an early age, but it was the lessons learned from his grandpa that shape his current views on the future of conservation. Along this journey Joe has discovered that conservation has hit a wall, the same approaches that were once successful aren't working. He calls for a new vision, a new quantified approach to conservation that ensures both the economy and environment will align.

    Hello Al, thanks for putting up my 10,000 Ton Tanker video! Viewers should know, that as I predicted in ths video, the "Nathan E Stewart" did eventually crash and sink, -and as it were, right before my eyes, the next year after this video was made. On my Vimeo page, people can see my video of the sinking, and others of the ensuing disaster. To this day, the area near Bella Bella BC remains polluted and is off limits to seafood harvesting.
