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."

Welcome to RHEL 8b! ... And Goo-o-oodby KDE!


... Good day, good news! :)

KDE unsupported in RHEL 8



Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 provided version 4 of KDE Plasma Workspaces (KDE) as an alternative to the default GNOME desktop environment. With Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8, all packages related to KDE have been removed, and it is no longer possible to use KDE instead of the default GNOME desktop environment.

Red Hat does not support migration from RHEL 7 with KDE to RHEL 8 GNOME. Users of RHEL 7 with KDE are recommended to back up their data and install RHEL 8 with GNOME.

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."

Scientists develop liquid fuel that can store the Sun’s energy for up to 18 years

"No matter how abundant or renewable, solar power has a thorn in its side. There is still no cheap and efficient long-term storage for the energy that it generates.

The solar industry has been snagged on this branch for a while, but in the past year alone, a series of four papers has ushered in an intriguing new solution.

Scientists in Sweden have developed a specialised fluid, called a solar thermal fuel, that can store energy from the sun for well over a decade..."

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
 

Troubled Water




Troubled Water- When gold mines threaten the fragile water resources of farming communities in Peru, Honduras and El Salvador, native people who live off the land try to stop the multinational mining corporations from the destructive exploitation of their natural resources. Braving bullying, death threats, even murder, these grassroots activists wage a pitched battle not just for environmental justice but also for their very survival.

The feature documentary Troubled Water weaves together a trio of stories of true heroism, each with the potential to inspire other ordinary citizens across the world. Máxima Acuña refuses to sell her farm to a mining operation, protecting the sacred lake on her land atop a 12,500' mountain in Peru; Salvadoran farmer Francisco Piñeda pulls the curtain back on a cyanide-water poisoning mine, and despite the murders... show more
 

Of Forests and Men




Yann Arthus-Bertrand was appointed by the United Nations to produce the official film for the International Year of Forests.

Following the success of Home which was seen by 400 million people, the photographer began producing a short 7-minute film on forests made up of aerial images from Home and the Earth from Above television programmes.

A River’s Last Chance


The Eel River in Northern California is arguably the best opportunity for wild salmon recovery on the entire west coast. The river and salmon have weathered decades of over fishing , abusive logging, catastrophic floods and droughts , a hydro power dam that diverts water out of basin.

Today the Eels recovering wild salmon compete for water with the region’s underground multi billion dollar cannabis economy and the multi billion dollar wine industries of Sonoma and Mendocino.

This film is rooted in the belief that we can live symbiotically with our watersheds and encourage both a rivers recovery and economic future.

DugOut


The film follows Benjamin Sadd (a filmmaker) and James Trundle (an artist) as they travel to the Ecuadorian Amazon to build a canoe from scratch, then travel alone through the rainforest. The journey builds on their 10 year friendship in this isolated and offen challenging environment, testing their relationship as they struggle to deal with the conditions and the complexity of the issues that surround this part of the Amazon Rainforest.

Ben and James have been on several 'adventures' together, from pulling a sofa across southern England to swimming the length of a knee deep river in Dorset. Making films about their trips has become a part of the journey. They wanted to build on these journeys in their latest project but also make something about mo... show more
 

Roundup facing its Judges




After her best selling film and book The World according to Monsanto, award-winning journalist Marie-Monique Robin presents her new documentary Roundup facing its judges on the use of glyphosate based herbicides around the globe. She deconstructs the mechanisms of one of the greatest environmental and health scandals in modern history. Her film showcases an exceptional investigation on a subject that concerns all of us, because glyphosate is everywhere: in the soils, the water, the food and the air. The guiding thread of the documentary is the Monsanto International Tribunal, held in the Hague in October 2016.

Irreparable Harm




The Tlingit people have called the vibrant coastline of Southeast Alaska home for over 10,000 years, and continue to practice a way of life intimately tied to the ocean and the largest remaining temperate rainforest on earth. Now contamination from industrial mining is threatening the safety of the wild food sources that make Alaska so unique. Xootsnoowú (Fortress of the Bears in Tlingit) is protected as Admiralty Island National Monument, and home to the Alaska Native village of Angoon. Greens Creek Mine, one of the largest silver producers in the world, is located thirty miles north of the village, and as the sole mine in the nation operating within a national monument, is required to comply with the law that no irreparable harm can befall the monument and its values.

Conservationists and Alaska Native communities have conducted independent research to assess whether Green’s Creek is contaminating the local ecosystem. Alar... show more
