Published on Jul 28, 2019

Thousands of protesters in Hong Kong have taken to the streets, blocking major roads and defying a police ban. The protesters wore black and held umbrellas, chanting anti-police slogans while marching through the territory’s business district. Police had given permission for a rally in Chater Garden, but warned that protests outside the park were illegal. On Saturday, police fired tear gas and rubber bullets at another pro-democracy protest in Yuen Long, in the north. Hong Kong has seen seven consecutive weeks of anti-government and pro-democracy protests. It is ranked as one of the safest cities in the world – but recent protests have been followed by violent clashes between demonstrators, police, and masked men wielding sticks.

This rare footage has gone on record as the largest glacier calving event ever captured on film, by the 2016 Guiness Book of World Records. On May 28, 2008, Adam LeWinter and Director Jeff Orlowski filmed a historic breakup at the Ilulissat Glacier in Western Greenland. The calving event lasted for 75 minutes and the glacier retreated a full mile across a calving face three miles wide. The height of the ice is about 3,000 feet, 300-400 feet above water and the rest below water.

Footage produced by James Balog (http://jamesbalog.com) and the Extreme Ice Survey (http://extremeicesurvey.org)

Chasing Ice won the award for Excellence in Cinematography at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival and a 2013 Emmy Award for Outstanding Nature Programming.
It has won over 40 awards at festivals worldwide, and was also nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song, “Before My Time” by J. Ralph featuring Scarlett Johansson and Joshua Bell.

Global Aviation Impact on Climate System Change are HUGE


Paul BeckwithPublished on Jul 27, 2019

On June 29th, 2019 a record 202,157 planes flew; essentially double the quietest day (Christmas Day, 2018) in the past 12 months. Peak number of simultaneous flights on June 29th was above 19,000. Each year, there are 4 billion passengers, expected to double over the next two decades. About 4 to 9% of the climate change impact of human activities is from aviation. Since 1990, carbon dioxide emissions from flying are up 83%; the climate impact is 2-4x that of the carbon dioxide alone. The “cheap fares” are NOT cheap in terms of their huge climate change impacts.

The Violence of the Green Revolution: Third World Agriculture, Ecology, and Politics (Culture Of The Land): Vandana Shiva

The Green Revolution has been heralded as a political and technological achievement―unprecedented in human history. Yet in the decades that have followed it, this supposedly nonviolent revolution has left lands ravaged by violence and ecological scarcity. A dedicated empiricist, Vandana Shiva takes a magnifying glass to the effects of the Green Revolution in India, examining the devastating effects of monoculture and commercial agriculture and revealing the nuanced relationship between ecological destruction and poverty. In this classic work, the influential activist and scholar also looks to the future as she examines new developments in gene technology.
