Philipscom: Our Existence Depends on Natural Resources: An Alert to the General Public and the Tree Fellers

Philipscom: Our Existence Depends on Natural Resources: An Alert to the General Public and the Tree Fellers | A Scoop At Ecological Issues | Scoop.it
Philip Verghese 'Ariel's insight:
Every year we celebrate environment day on June 5th with a lot of fervor and activities. Our media, print and visual, put forward a lot of stuff in this connection about the coming peril, the alarming global warming. It was good that many could take some kind of precaution towards it. If the present life style continues, no doubt we will be caught up in this peril. It is upsetting to note that cars, air-crafts, air conditioners, bulbs etc... and the way of life that causes the global warming. If we go on at this rate, the level of heat  increases and it will definitely be a great threat to the earth's species as well as human. Another report says that "the world has just 10 years to reverse surging greenhouse gas emissions or risk runaway climate change that could make many part of the planet uninhabitable." This is a great warning from the scientist world. They conclude that unless mankind rapidly stabilizes green house gas emissions and start reducing them, it will have little chance of keeping global warming within manageable limits. The result could be a great destruction. The present alarming high rate of oil addiction is a great threat. It is high time that we think seriously for a Great New Deal, that we must start the action needed to reduce green house gas emission before we end up in disaster. We have to seriously consider our present way of functioning and to do something solid to curtail the global warming.

Agricultural and Biofuel News: Organic Farming Expands, Contributes to Sustainable Food Security

Agricultural and Biofuel News: Organic Farming Expands, Contributes to Sustainable Food Security | A Scoop At Ecological Issues | Scoop.it

Organic farming is now established in international standards, and 84 countries had implemented organic regulations by 2010, up from 74 countries in 2009. Definitions vary, but according to the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements, organic agriculture is a production system that relies on ecological processes, such as waste recycling, rather than the use of synthetic inputs, such as chemical fertilizers and pesticides.

"Although organic agriculture often produces lower yields on land that has recently been farmed conventionally, it can outperform conventional practices—especially in times of drought—when the land has been farmed organically for a longer time," said Reynolds, a researcher with Worldwatch's Food and Agriculture Program. "Conventional agricultural practices often degrade the environment over both the long and short term through soil erosion, excessive water extraction, and biodiversity loss."

Nature Blows My Mind! This 80,000-Year-Old Aspen Grove Clones Itself

Nature Blows My Mind! This 80,000-Year-Old Aspen Grove Clones Itself | A Scoop At Ecological Issues | Scoop.it
Not only is this organism one of the oldest on Earth, it is also a contender for other extreme titles. (Nature Blows My Mind!

The grove is called Pando, which is Latin for "I spread" -- and spread it does. The grove is actually a single clonal colony of a male Quaking Aspen. Simply put, it is essentially one massive root system that began life an estimated 80,000 years ago. The root system currently has somewhere around 47,000 stems that create the grove of trees that keep the root system going.

Pando is not only considered the oldest living organism but also possibly the heaviest. The colony has spread over about 106 acres and experts think in all it weighs about 6,600 short tons. However, some experts think that chunks of the root system have died off leaving parts of the colony separated, making it effectively more than one organism. And other less-studied clonal colonies of aspen may be contenders for the title of heaviest.

Mini(mize) Carbon Olympics - Metro students battle carbon emissions - EDNPI

Mini(mize) Carbon Olympics - Metro students battle carbon emissions - EDNPI | A Scoop At Ecological Issues | Scoop.it

To highlight this year’s theme: “Earth day everyday, everywhere for everyone,” the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) and the Earth Day Network Philippines Inc. (EDNPI) kicked off Monday (April 22) a different kind of competition among Metro Manila high schools and colleges.

Celebrating Earth Day at the Quezon Memorial Circle, the Mini(mize) Carbon Olympics was launched to pit students of 47 secondary and tertiary private and public schools against pollution.

“If they would be competing against each other, it would only be for bragging rights,” EDNPI executive director Voltaire Alferez told the Inquirer.

He said the olympics would tap schools in Metro Manila, the pilot area, to educate them in ways to reduce carbon emission through energy-saving measures and efficient solid waste management.

“They (schools) would basically be competing with themselves on improving their existing environmentally sound practices as a way of addressing climate change,” he said, adding that during the activity, the schools would be taught how to “audit” greenhouse gas emissions and their energy consumption.

The Art and Science of Modern Marketing [Infographic] | A Scoop At Ecological Issues | Scoop.it

This article is from Eloqua and infograph from Eloqua and JESS3 marketing as we know it has changed quite a bit.

 

As technology has advanced, the industry has turned its eye towards more precise ways of measuring performance and engagement.

 

With the rise of the internet, mobile and social, you could see results as they came in. Science is the new buzzword.

 

You know the old lines and adages. “Marketing is a dark art.” “I know half my marketing budget isn’t wasted, I just don’t know what half.” These are common refrains of the marketing world.

 

Special announcement by Eloqua:

 

They're launching Eloqua Experience tomorrow, when modern marketers from around the globe will gather to show how they are using science and art.

Aquaponics — The farms of the future are growing today. In a valley in the Virgin Islands, in a warehouse in Chicago, on a rooftop in Florida and a greenhouse in Milwaukee, history’s newest and most sustainable form of agriculture has broken out of its seed and has began to take root. In these farms of the future, you’ll find no waste water, no eroding soil and no harsh insecticides, but a mutually-balanced ecosystem that yields fast-growing organic produce– and the freshest, toxin-free fish money can buy. This is aquaponics, a high tech farming technology where vegetables and fish are grown in concert, a next generation symbiotic system that just might change the way we grow, harvest and eat the food of tomorrow.
