Strange Visions of the Hyper-Congested Megacities of the Future | WIRED | Outbreaks of Futurity | Scoop.it
Photographer Marcus Lyon’s images of crammed megacities and never ending highways might make you feel like going off the grid—at least for a little while. In his series BRICs, Exodus, and Timeout, he creates images that are large-scale visions of globalization and human activity worldwide. The photos aren’t actual shots of Moscow or Mumbai, but composites of hundreds of images to make you feel overwhelmed by the sheer power and size of it all.

Graphic clearly shows human pressure on Earth reaching critical level | Outbreaks of Futurity | Scoop.it
Using 24 key social, economic, and environmental indicators, our friend Félix Pharand-Deschênes has created a dashboard that shows how human pressure on planet Earth is reaching critical level. Fast. The acceleration shown over the last 60 years is absolutely crazy. Zoom in. Freak out.
Artur Coelho's insight:

repitam comigo: os mercados é que são importantes. criar condições para os mercados é fundamental. sustentabilizar as sinergias no sistema financeiro é o acto responsável que implica reformismos empreendedoristas.

La satira “intollerabile” di Charlie Hebdo contro il politicamente corretto

La satira “intollerabile” di Charlie Hebdo contro il politicamente corretto | Outbreaks of Futurity | Scoop.it
L'ultimo numero di Charlie Hebdo un inno alla libertà di espressione, alla laicità, alla dissacrazione. Impossibile in un paese come l'Italia.
Artur Coelho's insight:
