Overview

If you could take 20 minutes out of your day to watch this short film, that would be greatly appreciated!

“Planetary Collective presents a short film documenting astronauts’ life-changing stories of seeing the Earth from the outside – a perspective-altering experience often described as the Overview Effect.
Common features of the experience are a feeling of awe for the planet, a profound understanding of the interconnection of all life, and a renewed sense of responsibility for taking care of the environment.”

Mark Lynas @ Oxford Farming Conference

Mark Lynas is apparently apologizing for helping start the anti-GMO movement in the 90’s, haven’t even finished watching it myself, but I thought it was a fascinating concept, have a look.

I found the video in this article.

Finally!

Biodegradable plastic!

We all know plastic is bad for the environment. Even though it is recyclable it is not cost-effective at all and can be quite harmful to the environment whether via trash degradation or the toxic air released from the recycling process. People have finally come up with a clever way of making a plastic that is not only biodegradable but also highly recyclable, much more so than previous, conventional forms of plastic. I haven’t got anything to add to the eloquent article linked above. You can read the article yourself, I think it elaborates on the topic much more effectively than I do.

(Now all we need to do is figure out what to do with all the plastic still floating around way out in the middle of all our oceans…)
