Resource Extraction & Hope: The Lorax Discussion
Join us this week as we discuss Dr. Suess' The Lorax, resource extraction, and hope in environmental children's stories.
Are you looking for a story of resource extraction, community, and hope? In this episode, Terra Informers Katherine Rogers, Hannah Cunningham, Elizabeth Dowdell, and Sara Chitsaz discuss Dr. Suess' children's story, The Lorax. The Lorax provides a simplified story of some impacts of the exploitation of natural resources, and of hope for recovering these resources. Join us as we discuss key takeaways, strengths and weaknesses of The Lorax book (first published in 1971) and film adaptation (released in 2012), and compare it to the current Fairy Creek resource conflict in BC.
