What is Sustainability? The vision for Sustainability at Eastman Chemical is that sustainability is embedded in everything we do. It's about balance. It's about making choices and being part of solutions to do what's right for business and what's right for the planet. Sustainability is a way for us to use our heads, show our hearts, but use our brains. It's an attitude, a state of mind. It is directly linked to innovation.

Publishing is a huge part of a scientist's life because until you publish you can't claim to have discovered something. Dame Athene Donald FRS and Professor Sarah-Jayne Blakemore retrace the lives of women who published in science and inspired others to follow them.
Across the globe, countries are investing in science and deem it critical for society. Yet scientists are facing funding issues, due to forces such as the sequester. How does a scientist navigate the tensions between the scientific enterprise and public attitudes toward science? Alan Leshner, Chief Executive Officer of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and Executive Publisher of the journal Science, shares insights on the state of science today, how the public perceives science, and how scientists can better communicate with the public.

Marine Biologist, Dr. Stephen Palumbi, discusses the oceans and global warming which is transforming our environment. The temperature, acidity and water level of the ocean is rising. These changes are increasing in speed and magnitude and their effects will last for centuries. Corals are among those organisms hit hardest by global warming. The rate our climate changes will determine whether coral can survive or not. Uploaded on Nov 5, 2008
A discussion of sustainability and its meaning by marine ecologist and conservationist, Dr. Stephen Palumbi. In 2002, Professor Palumbi moved his laboratory from Harvard University to Stanford University's Hopkins Marine Station, where he is now the Director of the station.
Ecosystems remain productive when used sustainably. Sustainable ecosystems are able to continually create resources without eroding the health of the ecosystem. Taking resources faster than they are made, or when their destruction exceeds regrowth, decays ecosystem health and makes it less productive. Several elements interact to determine ecosystem sustainablity.
Why preserve sustainability?
Ecosystems are sustainable when we balance the rates of removal and replacement. Sustainable ecosystems provide resources and services people rely on, such as:
-food and other income
-maintaining ecosystem health

This visualization shows how global temperatures have risen from 1880 through the end of 2013. NASA scientists say 2013 tied for the seventh warmest of any year since 1880, continuing a long-term trend of rising global temperatures. With the exception of 1998, the 10 warmest years in the 133-year record all have occurred since 2000, with 2010 and 2005 ranking as the hottest years on record.
The visualization shows a running five-year average global temperature, as compared to a baseline average global temperature from 1951-1980.
This color-coded map displays a progression of changing global surface temperatures anomalies from 1880 through 2013. Higher than normal temperatures are shown in red and lower then normal temperatures are shown in blue.
