Collects the latest science, emerging best practices, analytical tools, and legal shifts that can reduce cumulative harm from environmental factors to our planet, our communities, and ourselves. These three scopes represent different aspects of the problem of cumulative impacts and leverage points for addressing it. They also overlap and affect each other. Together they call for new precautionary decision structures and initiatives aimed at reducing total environmental impacts.

Programmed to be Fat?

A documentary that tackles the possible role of synthetic chemicals in the 'obesity epidemic'. Tells the stories of three scientists whose unexpected findings led them to follow the research of a curious doctor in Scotland, baffled by her inability to lose weight. For three years she pored over existing research on environmental chemicals and finally published a key study in an alternative medicine journal. It linked endocrine-disrupting chemicals to the obesity epidemic. The scientists came across the paper while puzzling over their own research results.  None of their studies were about fat, but they had two things in common – they were all researching endocrine-disrupting chemicals, and they all ended up with unusually heavy lab animals.
