  • Editor’s Note
    • Authors: Slovic S.
      Pages: 1 - 3
      Abstract: Here in North Idaho, we’re in the midst of the most difficult winter weather in recent memory—vast drifts of snow, streets encased in ice 6 inches deep, gales of freezing fog, temperatures well below freezing for weeks on end. Welcome to “global warming,” a time of general planetary warming trends, often manifested as climatic volatility … including dangerous cold and violent storms.

    • Authors: Estok SC.
      Pages: 4 - 21
      Abstract: What reasonable human being wouldn't be galvanized by the potential destruction of everything they've ever known or loved. How do you think this vision was received, how do you think people responded to the prospect of imminent doom' They gobbled it up… like a chocolate eclair! They didn't fear their demise, they repackaged it—it can be enjoyed as video games, as TV shows, books, movies, the entire world wholeheartedly embraced the apocalypse, and sprinted toward it with gleeful abandon. (Governor David Nix, Tomorrowland)

  • Narrating Dioxin: Laura Conti’s A Hare With The Face of a Child
    • Authors: Seger M.
      Pages: 47 - 65
      Abstract: In his ambulatory reflections on Italy’s Po valley just after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster of 1986, Gianni Celati writes: “il mondo esterno ha bisogno che lo osserviamo e raccontiamo, per avere esistenza” (126).11 The English translation of that statement is something like the following: “the external world needs for us to observe and recount it, so that it may have existence.” I cite the original Italian for the particular verb used, raccontare, which can be translated as “to narrate,” or even “to tell the story of,” just as easily as “to recount.” Motivated by an ethical commitment to both place and people, Celati is an avid narrator of the lived world, what he calls the mondo esterno in the citation above. Through observation he bears witness to existence, thus acquiring a certain responsibility to the thing observed just as he confirms its truth. By then telling the story of that external world, by translating “knowing into telling,” as Hayden White once defined narrative, Celati ensures that others who might not have seen the thing observed may still also know it—thus translating knowing into telling into knowing (5).

  • “Introduction: The Ecologies of Mobility”
    • Authors: Withers J.
      Pages: 66 - 74
      Abstract: Environmentalism has almost always privileged what geographer Tim Cresswell refers to as a “sedentarist metaphysics.” Cresswell defines this perspective as one that promotes “place, rootedness, spatial order, and belonging” (26), and one in which “mobility is seen as a threat” (42). The genre often referred to as nature writing often flaunts environmentalism’s affinity with a sedentarist metaphysics in, for example, its sanctification of Henry David Thoreau ensconced in his austere cabin beside Walden Pond; of Robinson Jeffers in his lithic Tor House and Hawk Tower overlooking the Pacific Ocean; of Edward Abbey in his ramshackle trailer in the Utah desert; of Annie Dillard in her house “clamped to the side of Tinker Creek,” a dwelling that she compares to an “anchorite's hermitage” (4). This house, Dillard states, “holds me at anchor to the rock bottom of the creek itself and it keeps me steadied in the current, as a sea anchor does” (4). “Clamped to the side,” “holds me at anchor,” “steadied in the current,” “anchorite’s hermitage”: Dillard’s phrases embody perfectly a sedentarist metaphysics.

  • Ecological Disorientation in Airline Ads and in DeLillo’s Zero K
    • Authors: Schaberg C.
      Pages: 75 - 91
      Abstract: Toward the end of Ecocriticism on the Edge, Timothy Clark argues: “Environmental criticism in the Anthropocene is likely to be more and more about unacknowledged denial. An environmental critic who still thinks it normal or even prestigious to take an international flight to attend an academic conference would be one trivial example of this” (160). This is a passing moment of Clark’s descriptive analysis of the complex problem of the Anthropocene for environmental critics, and yet as “trivial” as Clark himself suggests this example is, it beckons for further inquiry. How does contemporary air travel pass as “normal or even prestigious”—beyond academic circles, and removed from the scope of environmental criticism' And how might this normalization—or we might say naturalization—of flight turn out to have implications for ecological thought'

  • Traffic Stops, Stopping Traffic: Race and Climate Change in the Age of
    • Authors: Thompson K.
      Pages: 92 - 112
      Abstract: In September 2016, nine activists chained themselves together on a runway of London City Airport with a sign that read “Climate Crisis is a Racist Crisis.” Black Lives Matter UK activists claimed responsibility in a series of tweets that linked climate change to structural forms of oppression, including: “7/10 of the countries most affected by climate change are in sub-Saharan Africa” and “At London City Airport a small elite is able to fly, in 2016 alone 3176 migrants have died or gone missing in the Mediterranean #Shutdown.” Their action grounded airplanes and 9000 passengers at the airport for several hours. They were arrested and charged with “obstructing a person engaged in lawful activity,” to which they all pled guilty. Nevertheless, all were granted a “conditional discharge” and faced no immediate punishment for their actions.

  • Thoreau’s Wager and the Possibilities of Walking
    • Authors: Pangborn MH.
      Pages: 130 - 144
      Abstract: If, as so many writers have insisted, walking is thinking, then its relative rarity as an elective mode of travel would seem to explain a lot about our current crises.11 And yet we should not single out our own Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World for censure, for if walking is thinking, it is of a kind that has been avoided—and even held in something like contempt—for two and a half centuries.22 In his famous pedestrian journey across England in 1782, for example, Carl Moritz, a German minister, reports being derided by innkeepers and constantly offered assistance from passing coachmen. He concludes, “A traveller on foot in this country seems to be considered as a sort of wild man, or an out-of-the-way-being, who is stared at, pitied, suspected, and shunned by everybody that meets him” (qtd in Solnit 83). In England already entering the modern transportation revolution, the reverend observes, “any person undertaking so long a journey on foot, is sure to be looked upon, and considered as either a beggar, or a vagabond, or some necessitous wretch, which is a character not much more popular than that of a rogue” (qtd in Jarvis 24).

  • Time Travel by Bicycle: The Country, the City, and the Cyclist in
           Late-Victorian Literature
    • Authors: Shea DP.
      Pages: 145 - 158
      Abstract: After publishing his experimental and intellectually far-reaching first three novels, The Time Machine (1895), The Wonderful Visit (1895), and The Island of Dr. Moreau (1896), H.G. Wells published The Wheels of Chance: A Bicycling Idyll (1896). Readers who had come to expect from Wells harrowing escapes from troglodytic Morlocks thousands of years in the future, an angel falling to earth after being shot by a vicar, and a deranged, sadistic vivisectionist creating human–animal hybrid ‘Beast Folk’ on a remote tropical island found in The Wheels of Chance a rather less dynamic story: the tale of one Mr Hoopdriver, a London draper’s assistant who saves his money and buys a second-hand bicycle then takes it on a holiday tour of southern England. Hoopdriver rides from London into the country, visits some quaint villages and stays in some charming inns, walks barefoot in a stream, picks flowers, observes a weasel, and befriends a fellow cyclist, a young woman whom he helps to escape an undesirable suitor. He then pedals back to his job and his everyday life in London.1
