    • Authors: Brain S; Hersey M, Dunaway F.
      Pages: 1 - 1
      Abstract: The first issue of 2020 explores the relationship between humans and the natural world in five intriguing and geographically diverse instances. The outgoing president of the American Society for Environmental History, Graeme Wynn, edited his presidential address (“Framing an Ecology of Hope”) for publication in the journal and, in it, provides a comparison of two late twentieth-century Canadian intellectuals who charted paths toward ecological sustainability. The articles that follow take the reader on a whirlwind tour of fin-de-siècle Egypt, prewar Britain, stagflation-era United States, Maoist China, and an imaginary Hawaii (by way of Japan and Boston) in a future that never came to pass. In the Gallery essay, Claire Campbell takes us to the urban shoreline of Halifax, Nova Scotia, to consider how industrial modernity transformed the relationship between city and sea, raising questions about urban shorelines in an age of rising sea levels. Despite their diversity, the articles intersect in intriguing ways: for instance, Caleb Wellum’s energy independence movement helped to undermine the Hawaiian ecomodernist vision described by Stefan Huebner, and English efforts to impose their will on the landscape detailed by Samuel Grinsell reappear, albeit in altered form, in Peter Coates’s article about muskrats invading the English homeland. Whether looking at Egypt, China, or North America, these articles offer a reminder of the ways in which environmental history can illuminate familiar topics and, in so doing, add the context and nuance necessary to address the environmental challenges facing the world today.

  • Framing an Ecology of Hope
    • Authors: Wynn G.
      Pages: 2 - 34
      Abstract: AbstractResponding to the social, political, economic, and ecological challenges that confront contemporary society, this article—the 2019 Presidential Address to the American Society for Environmental History—argues that critique and resistance, married with a quest for alternative possibilities, will serve us better than a doleful narrative of decline. It seeks hope by reengaging with the ideas of scholars who earlier lamented despoliation and envisaged other, better, ways of being in the world. By discovering, interrogating, and drawing insight from the ways in which our precursors sought to emancipate their contemporaries, we can ask what they (or their ideas) can do for us. Although this strategy is unlikely to deliver immediate efficacious solutions to current dilemmas, it can help us to historicize ourselves and the precepts that shape our lives. It can also expand the range of existential possibilities by calling into question the conceited convictions, tired mantras, and blithe assumptions of contemporary economic and political discourse. By reflecting on the lives and contributions of two Canadians—Pierre Dansereau, an ecologist, and C. B. Macpherson, a political theorist—whose ideas cast light on the roots of our present predicament, this article helps to frame hopeful strategies with which to address our circumstances.

  • Tackling Climate Change, Air Pollution, and Ecosystem Destruction: How
           US-Japanese Ocean Industrialization and the Metabolist Movement’s Global
           Legacy Shaped Environmental Thought (circa 1950s–Present)
    • Authors: Huebner S.
      Pages: 35 - 61
      Abstract: AbstractOver the past decade, experts have discussed the offshore technologies so closely associated with accelerating climate change—namely, offshore oil and gas drilling—as tools for climate action, as was the case at a United Nations roundtable in April 2019. Such experts have frequently used offshore technologies for the construction of flood-resilient floating structures and for zero-carbon energy generation, such as in the case of offshore wind parks, simultaneously tackling the problem of carbon fuel-related air pollution. Such developments draw attention to the intellectual history of ocean industrialization, its driving forces, and related environmental thought. This article examines the intellectual origins of ecomodernism and similar green growth strategies. Using an oceanic perspective and placing the ideas of Japanese star architect and Metabolist movement member Kiyonori Kikutake and US ocean expert John P. Craven at its center, this article argues that their two prototypes of floating industrial combines tested in Hawaii and Okinawa during the early 1970s applied the Japanese Metabolist movement’s design principles of mobility, modularity, and plug-in structures to Pacific waters in an effort to decouple ocean industrialization from the destruction of ecosystems. Several of their proto-ecomodernist ideas, born as techno-optimist reactions to neo-Malthusian fears of resource depletion and overpopulation, have become central pillars of ecomodernist thought. As such, their projects turned into the immediate forerunner of current development strategies whose intellectual aim is to continue growth during (or despite) environmental challenges up to the planetary scale.

  • Forestry Revolution: The Rhetoric of Afforestation in Socialist China,
           1949–61
    • Authors: Li C; Liu Y.
      Pages: 62 - 84
      Abstract: AbstractThis article attempts to cast doubt on prior scholarship regarding Maoist environmental rhetoric regarding forestry, which has tended to characterize it as destructive, militaristic, and irrationally extractive. Against this simplistic portrayal of Maoist rhetoric concerning Chinese forestry and Mao Zedong’s attitudes toward nature, this article demonstrates that the rhetoric of forestry and environment in general during Mao’s period is scientific, rational, and even constructive regarding tree planting. To demonstrate the rational and premeditated aspect of socialist forestry and environmental history, the article first explores the speeches and writings of Liang Xi, probably the most important forester and bureaucratic forestry official in early socialist China, who advocated tree planting as a way of tackling the problem of the scarcity of trees. During the early 1950s, his firm belief that tree planting could solve the problems of the Yellow River clashed with hydrologists who also aspired to solve China’s environmental challenges. Using newspaper reports from the People’s Daily, the article then examines the rhetoric of the “Greening the Motherland” campaign launched by Mao in 1956. During this campaign, Mao pushed the Yellow River’s tree-planting initiative to a national scale, thanks largely to the foresters’ concerted efforts of persuasion. This nationwide campaign required foresters to instill knowledge of tree planting in a broader range of people at the grassroots level as well as to integrate it within the socialist revolutionary discourse. Since various literary sources from the early 1960s reflect this discourse, they provide us with a powerful means for exploring how foresters and writers achieved this goal.

  • “A Vibrant National Preoccupation”: Embracing an Energy
           Conservation Ethic in the 1970s
    • Authors: Wellum C.
      Pages: 85 - 109
      Abstract: AbstractThis article examines the popularity of the “energy conservation ethic” in the United States during the 1970s, which environmentalists, politicians, and oil companies endorsed as a solution to the energy crisis. It demonstrates that broad support for an energy conservation ethic contained two competing paradigms: one “ecological” and the other “nationalist.” The former advocated conservation as a means to a sustainable low-carbon future, while the latter viewed the conservation ethic as a tool to eliminate dependence on foreign oil in order to reestablish the economic and geopolitical strength of the United States. Thus, in contrast to a view that traces a relatively linear transition from the utilitarian and nationalist ethos of early twentieth-century conservationism to the more holistic concern with “the environment” of the postwar environmental movement, this article underscores the persistence of utilitarian conservationist conceptions of resource stewardship in the middle of the “environmental decade.” These competing paradigms contributed to the argument for energy price deregulation as the most effective way to discipline US energy consumers. In this way, the energy crisis and the conservation debates that it evoked reflected the rightward turn of the United States in the 1980s. Current energy history tends to focus on the political, environmental, and socioeconomic histories of energy production and consumption rather than efforts to reduce demand but, as this article demonstrates, discourses of conservation can also shape political trajectories in unexpected ways.

  • Mastering the Nile' Confidence and Anxiety in D. S. George’s
           Photographs of the First Aswan Dam, 1899–1912
    • Authors: Grinsell S.
      Pages: 110 - 133
      Abstract: AbstractThe first Aswan Dam was built at the dawn of the twentieth century and celebrated as a triumph of imperial engineering. Five years after its completion, workers returned to extend the dam. Photographer D. S. George recorded both the building and extension projects for the Egyptian Public Works Department in a series of images that give a unique insight into the place of engineering in the imperial imagination. The dam was built at the same time as Britain was seeking to secure its domination of the Nile Valley, having recently seized control of Sudan. Mastering the river’s water was vital to expanding agriculture in Egypt, a central plank of British policy in the region. Representations of the dam speak to a larger history of empire and power in northeast Africa. This article examines the tension between bombastic confidence and nagging anxiety in the ideologies of empire. Drawing together water, engineering, and environmental histories, it explores the connections between attempts to control the politics of the Nile Valley and efforts to harness its waters. The key themes found in the albums—nature, technology, work, and conservation—will be used as lenses through which to scrutinize the peculiar form of modernity that engineers attempted to forge on the world’s longest river. This analysis reveals that imperial officials sought total mastery of the environment but that the difficulties faced in realizing such grand schemes also generated persistent anxieties and so helps us understand the fears that accompanied the ambitions of imperial modernity.

  • Whatever Happened to Pleasant Street' Rediscovering an Urban Shoreline
    • Authors: Campbell C.
      Pages: 134 - 149
      Abstract: The city of Halifax, Nova Scotia, sits on a peninsula angled southeast into the Atlantic Ocean. Nowhere on the peninsula is more than two kilometers from the sea; its spine tilts you into water from every angle. Or it should, if topography alone had its way. In reality, there is no way to circle the peninsula beside the water; no way to walk from the rocky beach at the peninsula’s tip along the water’s edge to the downtown core. But there used to be.
