The Rise of Solar Gardens

Originally posted on Deeper Green Blog:

At this point, it’s impossible for even the most ardent old school energy guys to hide from the bright sunny truth that solar energy is blazing a new path in the U.S.  It’s easy to choose from a multitude of statistics that support this point. For example, as of the third quarter of last year, solar had made up more than 1/3rd of all new generating capacity built in the country. That would have been unimaginable just a few short years back. Here’s another – 6,500 MW of solar was expected online for 2014, a 36% growth over the previous year.  And one more – the industry is 3x as big as it was just three years ago and growth is only expected to accelerate.

Solar’s growth has been fueled by on-site installations on commercial, government and residential properties as well as utility scale projects. These two drivers will…

(Sam)sung Me a Song of Sustainability

Originally posted on mmufutures:

by Freddie Bruhin-Price

This news might be a few months late, but towards the end of last year there were some earth-shattering developments in the realm of Sustainability set to rock the world into a new era of carbon cleanliness. No, it’s not the first hydrogen fuelled metropolis, or the widespread distribution of a mass produced electric car. No, the news, first heard in November 2014, is that Samsung are now officially in the rap “game.” And their first effort, delivered alongside their annual Sustainability Report, is nothing short of disastrous.

Every year, big businesses have an unwritten obligation to file a public sustainability report. These documents outline a company’s economic, environmental and social impact, and propose measures for reducing and improving it in the ensuing year. Samsung are no different, but, in the spirit of innovation, they decided on a unique method to set their report apart from those…

Innovative IDEAS to solve world issues

Originally posted on ~ L to the Aura ~:

I have decided to start an IDEAS section for this blog, dedicated to exploring solutions to world problems which have yet to be solved. No problem is too big. Roll up your sleeves with me, and dive in fearlessly to tackle big issues, share relevant information, brainstorm ideas, and compassionately encourage others to do the same.

If you have a sustainable or compassionate problem (big or small) you would like solved, please note it below! I will be selecting a different topic each month for discussion. Additionally, a social media challenge will be launched each month to increase awareness about the issue chosen.

This IDEAS area is a safe place – all ideas, however seemingly unrealistic, are welcomed. Additionally, information generated from this section is free for entrepreneurs and innovators to pursue – in fact that is the point!

Lets change the world…one IDEA at a time.


**If you (or others you know) are interested in brainstorming or…

Mirjam Wanner goes into the deep forest…

unterholz

Ich gehe in den Wald hinein

Ich bin im Dickicht gelandet. Umgeben von Hölzern, Gräsern, Moos und Tannengeäst tun sich Wege auf, um im nächsten Augenblick wieder zu verschwinden. Formationen von Gestrüpp verführen mich und schicken mich weiter, neue zu entdecken. Phantasien, Phantasmen, Geräusche, Geknacke, geheime Wege und Verstecke. Alles ist möglich. Rastlos verweile ich hier. An diesem verrückten Ort, wo niemand ist ausser mir und ein paar wilden Tieren.

Parrots are birds of the roughly 372 species in 86 genera that make up the order Psittaciformes, found in most tropical and subtropical regions. The order is subdivided into three superfamilies: the Psittacoidea (‘true’ parrots), the Cacatuoidea (cockatoos) and the Strigopoidea (New Zealand parrots).Parrots have a generally pantropical distribution with several species inhabiting temperate regions in the Southern Hemisphere as well. The greatest diversity of parrots is found in South America and Australasia.

Jumping genes capture deep relationships between parrots and songbirds…

Fuck supplements

Nature is still smarter than we are. The world — and our physiology — is still more complex than we like to think.
