Creating A Restorative Loop with the Net-Works Programme
Static Preview
With at least 660 million people around the globe relying on the ocean for their livelihoods, and many living on the poverty line, Miriam Turner, Interface's Assistant VP, Co-Innovation, saw an opportunity. Inspired by Aquafil's recycling strides, she asked "Could we take this down to the community level and benefit some of the poorest people in the world? What if we could build a truly inclusive business model - buying discarded nets from local fishermen - giving them extra income - and cleaning up the beaches and oceans at the same time?" Published on Sep 3, 2013 Interface Europe on Facebook.

Ocean acidification explained in two minutes
Static Preview
The climate is changing, sure, but things are changing underwater, too. A quarter of the greenhouse gases we emit are absorbed by the oceans, changing their fundamental chemistry and causing all sorts of problems for the things that live down there. Which ends up causing problems for the couple billion of us who rely on the oceans for food and livelihood (and the not-to-be-discounted wow-factor — that shit is beautiful). Published on Mar 23, 2015 by Grist, a Beacon in the smog.  Grist on YouTube.

Recycle Electronics Responsibly | Molly Wood | The New York Times   

Before you throw away your old devices, consider recycling the valuable materials inside them. It’s an easy way to reduce your environmental footprint and maybe make some cash, too.

A Year in the Life of Earth's CO2 by NASA
Static Preview
Published on Nov 17, 2014
An ultra-high-resolution NASA computer model has given scientists a stunning new look at how carbon dioxide in the atmosphere travels around the globe. Very interesting.

Plumes of carbon dioxide in the simulation swirl and shift as winds disperse the greenhouse gas away from its sources. The simulation also illustrates differences in carbon dioxide levels in the northern and southern hemispheres and distinct swings in global carbon dioxide concentrations as the growth cycle of plants and trees changes with the seasons.

The carbon dioxide visualization was produced by a computer model called GEOS-5, created by scientists at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center’s Global Modeling and Assimilation Office.

The visualization is a product of a simulation called a “Nature Run.” The Nature Run ingests real data on atmospheric conditions and the emission of greenhouse gases and both natural and man-made particulates. The model is then left to run on its own and simulate the natural behavior of the Earth’s atmosphere. This Nature Run simulates January 2006 through December 2006.

While Goddard scientists worked with a “beta” version of the Nature Run internally for several years, they released this updated, improved version to the scientific community for the first time in the fall of 2014.
