This is truly sad to think that our pollution is affecting these sea creatures! We need to do a better job of taking care of the planet and those who live on it. If we were less wasteful, this wouldnt be an issue! I hope that the habitat for marine animals will improve!

The International Trade in Horse Meat - A Brutal and Secretive Trade - Investigation

The International Trade in Horse Meat - A Brutal and Secretive Trade - Investigation | Wild Life#1 | Scoop.it

March 15, 2013 - Alternet

Few Americans are aware that our country's horses are being exported and slaughtered abroad to supply other nations' taste for a meat that's shunned at home...

This grisly scene in a Mexican abattoir offers a rare glimpse into a brutal and secretive trade... Each year, thousands of horses -- abandoned pets, ex-racehorses, farm animals -- are rounded up and trucked across the country south into Mexico, or north into Canada, for killing and processing and dispatching abroad, many to Europe, a major hub of horsemeat consumption.

It's a murky and often-informal business, with numerous buyers, sellers and middlemen in on the game. And it's part of a much bigger, international trade in horses and horsemeat now in the spotlight in the wake of the European horsemeat scandal... .http://www.alternet.org/environment/brutal-and-secretive-trade-american-horses-killed-their-meat?page=0%2C2&akid=10193.237541.ORdrD5&rd=1&src=newsletter810408&t=5&paging=off

PVC Strawberry Planter

PVC Strawberry Planter | Wild Life#1 | Scoop.it

What are the advantages of this system? The most obvious is the ability to grow many plants in a small space. It’s an interesting way to maximize the production of a small garden, or to grow strawberries on a deck or balcony. 

 

But there are other advantages. Since the plants are off the ground, you’ll be able to grow very clean, very high-quality berries. Disease problems can be minimized with the off-the-ground approach, particularly in a greenhouse where constant airflow is provided.

 

Follow the photo-link to find out how to make your own strawberry tower.

Le printemps est là... enfin presque!!!

 

Votre balcon n'est pas très grand mais vous êtes gourmand... voici un style de présentation "gain de place" à mettre où bon vous semble, mais au soleil! pour des fruits bien mûrs.

 

Très facile à mettre en place dans un tuyau en PVC. 

 

Bonne plantation et surtout très bonne dégustation...

Antarctic freeze paved the way for baleen whales - environment - 18 April 2013 - New Scientist | Wild Life#1 | Scoop.it

Antarctica's icy blanket and huge, filter-feeding whales may be inextricably linked. It seems that when the South Pole first froze over, the expanding ice sheets may have completely transformed ecosystems in the surrounding oceans, even driving the evolution of baleen whales.

These natural and durable building materials provide a very cool contrast to elegant succulent plants. Used bricks work even better because they have a bit of personality and history behind them, and they are inexpensive (if they are used, they are probably thrown away, so they are free)!  The tricky part is to drill the holes, it not very difficult but you’ll have to be very patient, because any shock could shatter the brick.

Wooden Skyscrapers: A New Level of Sustainability?

Wooden Skyscrapers: A New Level of Sustainability? | Wild Life#1 | Scoop.it

A new breed of high-rise architecture is in the process of being born, thanks to the collaborative efforts of modern design pioneers. Envisioned as the best sustainable option for meeting world housing demands and decreasing global carbon emissions, wooden mega-structures are now one step closer to becoming a reality.


“Big Wood,” a conceptual project to the eVolo 2013 Skyscraper Competition, builds on the premise that wood, when harvested responsibly, is one of the best tools architects and engineers have for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and creating healthy communities. Aspiring to become one of the greenest skyscrapers in the world, Big Wood challenges the way we build our cities and promotes timber as a reliable platform to support tomorrow’s office and residential towers...

The Case For Tall Wood                               Michael Green Architecture

I find this hard to truly picture, but the story is solid...."the last century there has been no reason to challenge steel and concrete as the essential structural materials of large buildings. Climate change now demands that we do.....Wood is the most significant building material we use today that is grown by the sun. When harvested responsibly, wood is arguably one of the best tools architects and engineers have for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and storing carbon in our buildings."

 

“I’d put my money on solar energy…I hope we don’t have to wait till oil and coal run out before we tackle that.”
~Thomas Edison, In conversation with Henry Ford and Harvey Firestone March 1931

“Known as the birthplace of the skyscraper, Chicago is an optimal location for a prototype in mass timber construction,” writes Carlos Arzate

Geovanni's curator insight, May 8, 2013 9:32 AM

Fascinating place. Must of been a lot of wood to be created.

Bubba Muntzer's comment, May 13, 2013 11:44 AM
It takes around 30 years for a seedling to grow into the kind of wood that can be used in construction. A little maintenance is required during that period. Meanwhile it's soaking up CO2 and making oxygen. The only industrial processes required are to cut it down and cut it into boards and 2 x 4s. If you stagger your planting you have an endless supply.
