A Maine lobsterman is trying to take the lobstering tradition back to the old days — for the environment. Nat Hussey is using recycled gear that he found on the shore; propels his boat through pure manpower; and pulls up his lobster traps by hand. He’ll be making half the income he earned when worked on a large commercial boat, but he’ll produce zero carbon emissions.
Hussey compares himself to small-scale organic farmers. Has America had it with corporations and factories? Do you think we’ll all return to the older, simpler ways of doing things? Somehow, we doubt it.
