The Guardian's best new environment bloggers

The Guardian's best new environment bloggers | Occupy the Media | Scoop.it

"Today we're lifting the curtain on our new family of environment bloggers. From Shanghai to New York, Melbourne to Bangalore and Lima to Nairobi, our 10 new blogs will open a global window onto stories about wildlife, climate change, pollution, food, water, deforestation, activism, and more.

Inspired in part by the Guardian's stable of science blogs, our environment bloggers will have independence to publish without our editorial interference. Being on the ground, and experts in their field, I believe they'll deepen and enrich our coverage, rather than replacing our traditional journalism."

Stiffed: Occupy

Stiffed: Occupy | Occupy the Media | Scoop.it
It is harder to organise a political movement to help young people than old people. Young people are less susceptible to being organised and they lack the patience for the hard graft of a long political campaign. They are more likely to be seduced by the weak ties of social networking and the false promise of slogans like ‘We are the 99 per cent.’ Nonetheless, these are the victims who need the most help and who lack the clout or visibility to be heard among the more pressing demands being made by the more militant elderly. They are the 5 per cent and we should do something for them.

 

London Review of Books has an excellent critical analysis by David Runciman of the Occupy movement and the 99% versus 1% narrative.

Video games: environmental impact not virtual | Mediacology by Antonio Lopez

Video games: environmental impact not virtual | Mediacology by Antonio Lopez | Occupy the Media | Scoop.it

Interesting graphic regarding the ecological impact of video games. However it seems to imply that downloading has no environmental impact, and that is simply not true. It is likely that downloading has less impact, but cloud storage is pushing high energy consumption on server farms. If the current trend continues, the CO2 emissions of the Internet and cloud will double in ten years. Already it’s equal to the aviation industry.

Call for Solidarity: Please Support Occupy Media and Direct Action! | OccupyWallSt.org

Call for Solidarity: Please Support Occupy Media and Direct Action! | OccupyWallSt.org | Occupy the Media | Scoop.it
This campaign is for expanding crucial Occupy media efforts (we represent OccupyWallSt.org, Occupied Wall Street Journal, Occupy Together, @OccupyWallSt, OccupyWallSt Facebook page, etc.) as well as supporting direct action organizing. The people behind these crucial projects have been working on daily basis for nearly a year for little or no pay. Our goal is to help support them with living stipends so they can continue working without having to choose between going hungry or promoting social justice. We also believe that with modest compensation, these people will be able to focus and expand their efforts and help bring Occupy back into the public eye.

Beyond Occupy: CNN AWARDS Compelling imagery Video Occupy Wall Street, day 23 Anna and Rachel Otto

A video that fifteen year old twins Anna and Rachel Otto created on “Occupy Wall Street, Day 23″ has won them an award for “Compelling Imagery” in the Second Annual CNN iReport Awards.

In an interview with CNN’s Randi Kaye, the two girls described how they had put together a PowerPoint presentation last October — when they were only fourteen — to convince their father to take them from Fairfax, Virginia to New York City so they could film Occupy Wall Street.
