“Now We’re Hearing from the World”
Watch essayist, farmer, poet, and conservationist Wendell Berry, whose work often reflects religious and moral ideals and who spoke on May 4, 2010 at the Arlington Public Library in Virginia. Here he responds to a question about cheap oil and how it allows us to live. He says the issue is one of ignoring limits, and he calls the recent BP Gulf of Mexico oil spill “news from the world” in noisy response to the way we have gone after oil and mineral resources.
