This is a great article! A must read for any safety professional.

In a nutshell, it outlines 7 basic things that any person in an OHS role should be aware ofMy previous posts about safety and culture have had negative overtones so I chose this as a breath of fresh air.

What I really liked is his reference to his job as a "positive culture safety consultant"

Rats forsake chocolate to save a drowning companion: the rodents feel empathy.

Rats forsake chocolate to save a drowning companion:  the rodents feel empathy. | Wild Resiliency | Scoop.it

We’ve all heard how rats will abandon a sinking ship. But will the rodents attempt to save their companions in the process? A new study shows that rats will, indeed, rescue their distressed pals from the drink—even when they’re offered chocolate instead.


They’re also more likely to help when they’ve had an unpleasant swimming experience of their own, adding to growing evidence that the rodents feel empathy.

How to communicate the scientific consensus on climate change

How to communicate the scientific consensus on climate change | Wild Resiliency | Scoop.it

At present, only one in ten (12%) Americans understand that 90% or more climate scientists have concluded that human-caused climate change is happening. Recent research has found that this public misunderstanding about the degree of scientific consensus is highly consequential: public perceptions of the scientific consensus appear to influence public beliefs that global warming is happening, human-caused and a serious problem that requires public action and legislative support. Our new paper offers some practical recommendations on how to effectively communicate the scientific consensus. - See more at: http://environment.yale.edu/climate-communication/article/how-to-communicate-the-scientific-consensus-on-climate-change#sthash.UJ2FVhsQ.dpuf

There's no need to worry that the world's resources are running out, writes Matt Ridley

There's no need to worry that the world's resources are running out, writes Matt Ridley | Wild Resiliency | Scoop.it
Ecologists worry that the world's resources come in fixed amounts that will run out, but we have broken through such limits again and again, writes Matt Ridley. How innovation improves the environment.
Larry Glover's insight:

OK, I admit to occasionally listening to Rush Limbaugh for a few minutes once a month or so. Seems good to try and get inside the head of such folks, good to try and see the world through the eyes of those who see the world so differently than I do.


Like Mr. Ridley, the author here who attempts to make a case for pushing forward full steam ahead, as though this 'forward thrust' at all costs is not what got us where we are and always will do so. 


I find the article oddly interesting, narrow minded for the absence of the spiritual value of 'nature' provides us, twisted in language and thought and challenging in the invitation to think outside my worldview. For example:

"In many respects, greater affluence and new technology have led to less human impact on the planet, not more. Richer people with new technologies tend not to collect firewood and bushmeat from natural forests; instead, they use electricity and farmed chicken—both of which need much less land."


This leaves me wondering both what planet the author is living on and if he's not yet heard of the new geological age acknowledging Man's collective biogeophysical impact on it: the Anthroprocene.


Mr. Ridley closes with the usual appeal to the god of innovation for salvation from ourselves. Now, I'm a believer in innovation; we need all we can get. And that too is Nature's strategy during times of rapid change. So we need it.


And I believe there is something else we need even more: to remember we are part and parcel of a larger whole to whom we owe our own existence and allegiance. The human spirit will be less for the absence of the polar bear.... The preservation of our fellow travelers on spaceship earth makes not just good sustainability thinking. It makes for good human flourishing and thrivability.

Can You Hear Me Now? Why your safety culture thrives on conversation, not assumptions -- Occupational Health & Safety

Normally, you assess an organization’s safety culture by observing how employees translate the company’s principles, values, attitudes, and goals into their behavior and decision-making. This seems like a pretty straightforward method, but beware of drawing conclusions based only on observations—you’ll fall into the assumptions trap.

Via Tom Wojick
Larry Glover's insight:

Self care, i.e. safety in this context, is a fundamental aspect of our wild resiliency, our 'self-love.' Many organizations, like many people, fear diving into the depths of vulnerable self-reflection required to move our life force into this more open and nurturing relationship with Life.

Bioinspiration: something for everyone

Bioinspiration: something for everyone | Wild Resiliency | Scoop.it

‘Bioinspiration’—using phenomena in biology to stimulate research in non-biological science and technology—is a strategy that suggests new areas for research. Beyond its potential to nucleate new ideas, bioinspiration has two other interesting characteristics. It can suggest subjects in research that are relatively simple technically; it can also lead to areas in which results can lead to useful function more directly than some of the more familiar areas now fashionable in chemistry. Bioinspired research thus has the potential to be accessible to laboratories that have limited resources, to offer routes to new and useful function, and to bridge differences in technical and cultural interactions of different geographical regions.

Weekend read: The trouble with growth

Weekend read: The trouble with growth | Wild Resiliency | Scoop.it
Clearly, belief in the indispensability of economic growth, while deeply rooted in governments virtually worldwide, is quite recent. The common view that growth has always been an important objective of government is mistaken.

That growth is inextricably bound up with human nature is an even greater mistake, if it makes us think that there really is no alternative to economic growth. Understanding that growth is not a necessary goal of government policy is critical if we are to imagine alternative economic futures.

-▶  A DUSTY GREENLAND IS SPEEDING UP GLACIAL MELT. 

A paper published in the journal Nature Geoscience suggests that dust particles embedded in Greenland’s massive ice sheet are gathering more heat than the otherwise white, reflective surface would and causing melting to accelerate. The scientists write that “recent warming in the Arctic has induced an earlier disappearance of the seasonal snow cover, uncovering large areas of bare soil and thus enhancing dust erosion.”

Dust absorbs the sunlight and re-radiates it as heat. This causes earlier snowmelt that in turn exposes ice beneath the snow sooner than otherwise would have been expected — creating a feedback loop.

Warren Bennis: The Father of Leadership Development

Warren Bennis: The Father of Leadership Development | Wild Resiliency | Scoop.it
Warren Bennis touched so many of us so deeply… from students and consultants, to CEOs and U.S. Presidents.  His depth of mind and presence of character set an example for us all.  A young platoon leader in World War II, a provost and a president at universities, and scholar, Warren [...]

And so Warren touched me as he did so many of us. Thank you, Warren.

Fact or Fiction?: The Sixth Mass Extinction Can Be Stopped

Fact or Fiction?: The Sixth Mass Extinction Can Be Stopped | Wild Resiliency | Scoop.it
Is the planet undergoing the sixth mass extinction in its history courtesy of the human species?

Via Cathryn Wellner
Larry Glover's insight:

Here's one of the more optimistic articles on the current mass extinction that I've seen. And while still acknowledging:

 "Scientists can't be sure of the current die-off rate, perhaps because much of it is happening to beetles and other insects that are notoriously overlooked. But according to that new study in Science, the total number of such invertebrates fell by half over the past 35 years while the human population doubled. Other recent studies suggest that the current extinction rate is roughly 1,000 times faster than the average pace in Earth's history. That makes this the fastest extinction event on record, even if it is not yet a mass die-off."

To get creative, get walking - Futurity

To get creative, get walking - Futurity | Wild Resiliency | Scoop.it
Walking, indoors or out, can boost creative inspiration by as much as 60 percent, new research shows.

Via Tom Wojick
Larry Glover's insight:

How can we be creatively, or wildly, resilient if we are not embodied? My experience is that anything, qi gong-dancing-yoga..., anything that brings me more into my body boosts my creativity. Other research demonstrates, contrary to this study, creativity benefits to time spent outdoors. It will be interesting as research flushes this out further.

Climate Change Deemed Growing Security Threat by Military Researchers

Climate Change Deemed Growing Security Threat by Military Researchers | Wild Resiliency | Scoop.it
The accelerating rate of climate change poses a severe risk to national security and acts as a catalyst for global political conflict, a report published Tuesday said.

Via Willy De Backer
Larry Glover's insight:

Climate destabilization has been on the military's radar for years as a growing security threat...still political inaction remains. Question becomes, whose short term interests are served by supporting denial and inaction? 

more...
Willy De Backer's curator insight, May 14, 2014 3:10 PM

This is not new - the military have been warning for years but who is listening, and more importantly what will be their recommendations? A change of lifestyle? Very unlikely; more likely, more military to secure the rich and powerful.

Eli Levine's curator insight, May 14, 2014 9:14 PM

If you don't believe the hippies, believe your own people in the military industrial complex. 

 

Sorry conservatives, but, in the grand scheme of the universe, in spite of all the power and control you've managed to accumulate, you're still an inferior grade of organism for survival on this planet, and you all belong in mental institutions for diagnosis and treatment.

 

You're otherwise a danger to yourselves and a danger to others.

 

Think about it.

Looking for Success in All the Wrong Places

Looking for Success in All the Wrong Places | Wild Resiliency | Scoop.it
I now know that everything I want is already within me. I also know that success is within every one of us and that until we own and embrace the truth within us, we will restlessly search for fulfillment for the rest of our lives....
Larry Glover's insight:

Learning to define success from the inside out is a key movement in the restoration of our wild resiliency, in moving from extrinsic motivation to intrinsic, in moving from protection and scarcity to generosity and sufficiency. A good article here.
