Global Footprint Network


"Transforming humanity’s trajectory is more pressing than ever. A sustainable path is the only viable way forward.

The October 2018 IPCC report confirms unequivocally that the only option is to transition to regenerative economies.

The Ecological Footprint continues to be the only metric that comprehensively compares human demand on nature against nature’s capacity to regenerate."

The world needs to live up to promises made on biodiversity


"Denuded forests empty of animals, plastic pollution clogging the oceans, and fewer bees to pollinate our crops, are all testament to the failure of our model of production and consumption to build a society in balance with nature. (...) There are pathways that can take us to towards a sustainable future. But these require transformational change, including changes in behaviour at the levels of producers and consumers, governments and businesses."

The Guardians


An indigenous community in Mexico’s Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve must confront internal divisions and illegal loggers in order to recover the ancient forest they nearly destroyed. Like the millions of monarchs that also call this forest home, their survival depends on it.

A visually dazzling meditation on the delicate balance between human and nature, The Guardians elegantly interweaves the lives of the iconic monarch butterfly with an indigenous community in Mexico. Both depend on the same ancient forest for their survival and now face an uncertain future. Migrating 3,000 miles to hibernate in the towering Oyamels, the monarch population faces collapse, hitting a r... show more
 
The real seeds producers: Small-scale farmers save, use, share and enhance the seed diversity of the crops that feed Africa
https://www.grain.org/article/entries/6035-the-real-seeds-producers-small-scale-farmers-save-use-share-and-enhance-the-seed-diversity-of-the-crops-that-feed-africa
Ever since the giant corporations started to gain control of the seed market globally, seeds have also been about making money, big time. Uniformity replaced diversity as the standard. Monopoly control based on property rights increasingly took over from sharing as the new system of seed distribution. And seeds have been turned into a global commodity in the service of industrial farming and huge corporations, with short shrift given to local adaptedness to the specific methods, ecosystems, and needs of family farms.

Growth + entropy, bitch.

TL;DR:
  • complexity of modern systems prevents efficient recycling
  • 2nd principle of thermodynamics prevents efficient energy recycling
  • even if we could get efficient, continuous growth would fuck everything

World's Oldest Living Tree — 9550 years old — Discovered In Sweden

The world's oldest recorded tree is a 9,550 year old spruce in the Dalarna province of Sweden. The spruce tree has shown to be a tenacious survivor that has endured by growing between erect trees and smaller bushes in pace with the dramatic climate changes over time.

A 14-year-long oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico verges on becoming one of the worst in U.S. history - The Washington Post

Between 300 and 700 barrels of oil per day have been spewing from a site 12 miles off the Louisiana coast since 2004.... The Taylor offshore spill is threatening to overtake BP’s Deepwater Horizon disaster as the largest ever.

Introduction


Hi all! I'm #newhere on social.isurf.ca to give Friendi.ca a whirl as a potential destination for this Google+ refugee. I actually registered a few days ago, at about the same time as I joined Diaspora ( @Murray J Brown ), where many other refugees have gone. I've been drawn back upon favourable comments made by @Shelenn Ayres.

First Impressions:
I like the broad interoperability Friendi.ca has with both the Federation (e.g., Diaspora) and the Fediverse (e.g., Mastodon, where I also have accounts: @mjb ).

The look & feel of the Friendi.ca user interface is somewhat more familiar and intuitive (to me, anyways) tha... show more
 
Hey everyone, I’m #newhere. I’m interested in #climateprotection, #debian, #ecology, #floss, #history, #javascript, #linux, #opensource, #philosophy, #python, #rust, #socialism, #socialjustice, and #sustainability.

In preparation for The Great G+ Migration,,I thought I'd join up here to reacquaint myself with Diaspora before more seriously considering running my own pod. It's been a long time since I last explored it so I expect much has improved since its earliest days.
 
"If corporations’ profits were increased by using other types of packaging – or none at all – we would see a real change in the environmental impact of our waste... Living a sustainable life should not be a left-field choice for the elite, it should be the norm for us all. The onus is on political leaders to make it impossible to profit from manufacturing single-use plastics."

Elinor Ostrom: Fighting the Tragedy of the Commons


Among the recipients of the 2009 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics was Elinor Ostrom, for her analysis of economic governance, especially in relation to the commons. While this choice took many in the profession by surprise, her life-long quest for an understanding of successful common property resource management holds important lessons for our future.
(...)

The generalizable insights that she extracted from this mass of disparate evidence were collected together in her enormously influential 1990 book Governing the Commons. Here she proposed a set of principles that were associated with sustainable resource management—clear boundaries, explicit rules, effective monitoring, graduated sanctions for violators, mechanisms for conflict resolution, broad participation in governance, and relative autonomy from higher-level authorities. Successful governance typically required a nested hierarchy of procedures, with rules regulating routine actions at the base, collective choice procedures for altering these rule... show more

Anthropocene

The Human Epoch


A cinematic meditation on humanity’s massive reengineering of the planet, Anthropocene: The Human Epoch is a four years in the making feature documentary film from the multiple-award winning team of Jennifer Baichwal, Nicholas de Pencier and Edward Burtynsky.

Third in a trilogy that includes Manufactured Landscapes (2006) and Watermark (2013), the film follows the research of an international body of scientists, the Anthropocene Working Group who, after nearly 10 years of research, are arguing that the Holocene Epoch gave way to the Anthropocene Epoch in... show more
 

How Green Is My Forest


http://indianquarterly.com/how-green-is-my-forest/
My friends and I have made it secure for the moment, so that it can get on with being itself. Such security is not entirely in our hands, but we have made a promise to this place, that we will do what we can in the time that we have. It is an undeniable fact that this place is now richer and more fertile, that there are many more creatures here, and that the density and diversity of the vegetation has increased. We each have our anecdotes and our various awarenesses born of our respective cultural and ecological histories, but we agree: there is more life here now than 20 years ago. So far there are no lists of species in this valley, no quadrats and transects, just a handful of humans walking around, keeping watch and cleaning up behind everyone else, countering destructive practices, collecting stories, and sharing our knowledge with children, the coming generations.

Microplastics everywhere : a soup of confetti of tiny little plastic bits

#trash #world #climatechange #ecology #life
Since modern plastic was first mass-produced (+-1950) 8 billion tons have been manufactured. And when itʼs thrown away, it doesnʼt just disappear. Much of it crumbles into small pieces.
(...) 9 percent was recycled, 12 percent was incinerated and 79 percent accumulated in landfills or the natural environment.

Plus de 90% de l’eau utilisée par les humains l’est par l’agriculture et l’industrie. Les 10% restant sont partagés entre les municipalités et les êtres humains qui vivent et respirent. L’entretien des terrains de golf d’une ville nécessite en moyenne autant d’eau que l’ensemble des êtres humains de cette ville. Les gens (qu’ils soient des gens humains ou des gens poissons) ne sont pas en train de mourir parce que l’eau s’épuise. Ils sont en train de mourir parce que l’eau est volée. ~ Derrick Jensen (traduit)
