Marcellus Shale Research Guide
by Sue Collins
"The Marcellus Shale Documentary Project tells stories, through photographic images, of how the lives of Pennsylvanians are affected by the Marcellus Shale Gas Industry. By creating a visual document of the environmental, social and economic impact of drilling, the work aims to engage communities in the current Marcellus debate while providing important historical images for the future."

Maya Lin to debut Unchopping a Tree at COP 15

In Forest Man filmmaker William Douglas McMaster profiles Jadav Payeng, an environmental activist who has single-handedly planted more than 1,300 acres of trees on the Indian river island Majuli. Since 1979, Payeng has devoted his life to expanding the forest and protecting the animals that live within it. "There are no monsters in nature except for humans," he says. "Nothing is safe from humans, not even tigers or elephants."
McMaster frames the story through a local journalist named Jitu Kalita, who stumbled across the forest in 2009. Kalita wrote an article about his discovery shortly afterward, which turned Payeng's work into a national sensation. "I couldn't believe my eyes," he recalls. "I had found a dense forest in the middle of a barren wasteland."
