Banana Paper Reduction: Earth University : Dr. Panfilo Tabora
Static PreviewEARTH University of Costa Rica is a private, non-profit international institution dedicated to education, research and sustainable commercialization activities centered around agricultural sciences and the rational management of natural resources.

Their commercial banana farm is a major supplier to U.S. based Whole Foods and the agricultural waste from banana production is combined with recycled paper products to manufacture new paper for commercial purposes.

Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill: 35 days from Space: NASA
Static PreviewThe MODIS instrument, on board NASA's Terra and Aqua satellites, is capturing images of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The spill began on April 20, 2010 with the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig. This short video reveals a space-based view of the burning oil rig and, later, the ensuing oil spill through May 24, 2010. The oil slick appears grayish-beige in the images and changes due to changing weather, ocean currents, and the use of oil dispersing chemicals. Images in the video time series were selected that show the spill most clearly. The full image archive is available on the MODIS Rapid Response Web site at http://rapidfire.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/

The Future of (Sustainable) Agriculture:1/2:Fred Kirschenmann
Static Preview

Fred Kirschenmann, Distinguished Fellow at the Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture talks about how being organic doesn't automatically mean you are in the camp of sustainability. Greening up what you are doing isn't going far enough and move from concept of steady state to resiliency. We have been drawing upon natures reserves of stored energy (hydrocarbons) and water resources at unsustainable rates, and those finite resources are diminishing rapidly; technology alone, will not provide substitute solutions.

Fred Kirschenmann is a long-time leader in the sustainable agriculture movement, Distinguished Fellow at the Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture, and a third-generation farmer (an organic farmer himself).  A record from his talk at the Organicology conference in Portland, Oregon.
