Ecorium of the National Ecological Institute, South Korea

Ecorium of the National Ecological Institute, South Korea | Le flux d'Infogreen.lu | Scoop.it

The Ecorium of the National Ecological Institute in Seocheon-gun, South Korea promotes a design concept by SAMOO Architects and Engineers that reflects three key concepts:

"From the Nature," "Be the Nature," & "With the Nature." 


The first is expressed by the dynamic, organic lines of the Institute and its grounds.  The second uses cutting-edge technology to recreate ecological environments by aligning greenhouses with the optimal amount of sunlight for each one.  The third includes visitors who immerse themselves in the complex ecological experience.  The Ecorium is poised to become a landmark in green research, education, and exhibitions.

We chose this article to be in the Intellectual/Arts category because it is about improvement of education. This article is about the National Ecological Institute in Seocheon-gun, South Korea which is an institute of ecology that focuses on 3 main concepts: "With the Nature," "From the Nature," and "Be the Nature" Its main goal is to become a "landmark in green research, education, and exhibitions." It looks like this landmark will help South Korea improve its knowledge in Ecological studies.

Climate science settled: Earth is warming, climate stability is a thing of the past, and humans are responsible. Canada: No comment.

The Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, all 900 pages – will be officially tabled on Monday.  Meanwhile, the key chapters and the Summary for Policy Makers were released on Friday.

In response, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon said, “The heat is on.  We must act.”

US Secretary of State John Kerry said, “This is yet another wakeup call: Those who deny the science or choose excuses over action are playing with fire …. the response must be all hands on deck. It’s not about one country making a demand of another. It’s the science itself, demanding action from all of us.”

President Obama’s science adviser, Dr. John P. Holdren, said the report proves “that the kinds of harm already being experienced from climate change will continue to worsen unless and until comprehensive and vigorous action to reduce emissions is undertaken worldwide.”

And, in Canada, Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s science advisor said, …… Oooops. Harper eliminated that post. So no comment from that corner.

Sea levels and air temperatures continue to rise according to studies, which is expected to lead to more floods and worse heat waves. To help prevent this, the 19th UN Climate Conference takes place this month to discuss how to curb carbon emissions after 2020, including key steps towards a new globally binding agreement by 2015. Check out the infographic on climate change for more information.
