Hello – June in Siberia – Mark Berube and The Patriotic Few

Alo Alo,

We’re excited to present to you our new video for the song Above the Ground It was inspired by the work of Scottish artist Andy Goldsworthy. Maybe you’ve heard of his installation when he brought giant snow balls into downtown London, England back in June, 2000. He creates the temporary in a way that you won’t easily forget. Since the song Above the Ground touches on the subject of how we are temporary in all our faults and glory, so it seemed like a natural fit. We hope you enjoy it.

Want to help someone? Shut up and listen!

Ernesto Sirolli got his start doing aid work in Africa in the 70′s — and quickly realised how ineffective it was.

Why you should listen to him:

Ernesto Sirolli is a noted authority in the field of sustainable economic development and is the Founder of the Sirolli Institute, an international non-profit organization that teaches community leaders how to establish and maintain Enterprise Facilitation projects in their community. The Institute is now training communities in the USA, Canada, Australia, England and Scotland.

In 1985, he pioneered in Esperance, a small rural community in Western Australia, a unique economic development approach based on harnessing the passion, determination, intelligence, and resourcefulness of the local people. The striking results of “The Esperance Experience” have prompted more than 250 communities around the world to adopt responsive, person-centered approaches to local economic development similar to the Enterprise Facilitation® model pioneered in Esperance.

Glencore – Commodities speculation has a very human cost.

 

Commodities speculation has a very human cost.

This video was produced for the documentary series HungryBeast on Australia’s ABC1.

http://reclaimgrowsustain.com/sites/default/files/money%20cannot%20be%20eaten.jpg

97% owned present serious research and verifiable evidence on our economic and financial system. This is the first documentary to tackle this issue from a UK-perspective and explains the inner workings of Central Banks and the Money creation process.

When money drives almost all activity on the planet, it’s essential that we understand it. Yet simple questions often get overlooked, questions like; where does money come from? Who creates it? Who decides how it gets used? And what does this mean for the millions of ordinary people who suffer when the monetary, and financial system, breaks down?

Gas Gas Gas

China’s environment has been affected in the wake of two decades of economic growth. And many farmers have been left behind in a growing gulf separating rich and poor. Now the central government hopes to reduce both rural discontent and greenhouse gas levels with one act – by getting farmers to turn animal manure into energy.

This feature documentary is produced by the United Nations International Fund for Agricultural Development.

The Next Industrial Revolution

 

Chris Bedford and Shelley Morhaim made this award winning 56 minute long film on the sustainability revolution in materials and manufacturing. “The Next Industrial Revolution” tells the story of architect William McDonough’s and chemist Michael Braungart’s work to resign the industrial material economy to “work with Nature, not against it.” TNIR has been translated into four languages and is in use around the world to promote a transition to sustainable material systems.

FLUORESCENT

Water Light Graffiti by Antonin Fourneau, created in the Digitalarti Artlab

The “Water Light Graffiti” is a surface made of thousands of LED illuminated by the contact of water. You can use a paintbrush, a water atomizer, your fingers or anything damp to sketch a brightness message or just to draw. Water Light Graffiti is a wall for ephemeral messages in the urban space without deterioration. A wall to communicate and share magically in the city.

LED Lighting Vs Fluorescent Tubes – A Simple Question of Health and Energy Savings

Fluorescent

LED lighting is truly the next generation technology which features numerous benefits to not only consumers for Home LED Lighting, but businesses alike, with LED Downlighting products and LED Tubes which can replace out-dated, buzzing fluorescent lighting. LED lighting offers such benefits as a higher energy efficiency than CFLs and fluorescents, lower power consumption, lower maintenance costs, longer lifetime (50,000 hours compared to less than 10,000), durability and brighter light output than conventional fluorescent lighting. LED lighting is slowly filling the Home Lighting and Business Lighting market place with such innovative products as LED T5 and LED T8 Tubes, Flexible LED Lighting, and LED Down Lighting.

Fluorescent lighting contains toxic materials such as mercury which is harmful to environment and human body. Did you know that if you drop or break a fluorescent bulb you must leave the room for 4 hours, due to the toxic materials floating in the air, which could cause respiratory damage, or Asthma in the long run for workers who have to deal with these fixtures daily. For workers and personnel who replace fluorescent tubes at work such as electricians are the most impressed by LED tubes, since they are not only easier to install, requiring no ballast, but they are worry-free, as they can last upwards of 10 years, on for 24 hours a day, and do not contain any toxic materials like mercury dust that fluorescents do. For quick installation, LED tube lighting can be placed and installed directly into existing fluorescent T5 and T8 sized sockets, you only need to remove the ballast, plug the LED bulbs in, and you’re done! Contrary to popular belief, LEDs are very easy to install in this day and age, and the bulk of LED products are now “plug-and-play” while still offering a slick look with unmatched energy savings.

Blue Gold – World Water Wars #JRZ12

Wars of the future will be fought over water as they are over oil today, as the source of human survival enters the global marketplace and political arena. Corporate giants, private investors, and corrupt governments vie for control of our dwindling supply, prompting protests, lawsuits, and revolutions from citizens fighting for the right to survive. Past civilizations have collapsed from poor water management. Can the human race survive?
