Environmental crises continue to threaten our blue planet, and if we don’t do something about it, nature might just come back to bite us in the ass. (We don’t really need to explain how man-made global warming combined with agricultural waste dumped in the ocean has resulted in massive explosions in the highly poisonous box jellyfish population, do we?) Your Environmental Road Trip is a movie that follows three filmmakers as they explore all 50 states in one year to see exactly what’s happening on the environmental front. The trio tours wind farms, houses made out of recycled materials, and structures running exclusively on solar energy. The group also visits Joel Salatin, who explains the practice of “mob stocking herbivorous solar conversion lignified carbon sequestration fertilization.” (It’s a rambling exploration of the very nature of conservation and ecological responsibility. We think.)
