Crowdsourcing and oceanography, a mix made out of necessity

Crowdsourcing and oceanography, a mix made out of necessity

Posted Fri, 12 Sep 2014 11:09:00 GMT by Dave Armstrong

How can science cope with the vast expanses of maritime area and all the problems the oceans have? Employ everybody who’s out there, that’s how. Sailors and lubbers, sinners and saints can all join in to add to the desperately deficient data. We do need to know what and why, how and why the denizens of the deep are coping with the world we are changing for them.

Life is changing. Now we can have a garden on our roof, but the wildlife and energy-transforming possibilities are really building up. I doubt if you’ll like some of our ideas here, but there may be some way you can imagine a green roof being of benefit and fitting in to your local landscape.

Organic food is tremendously healthy, and now we can prove it. Forget the fertilizer and pesticide and let’s get scientific about improving the organic production of all crops.

Have you ever wondered about modifying your home to make it less energy intensive? Or does the idea of building environmentally-friendly homes appeal to your government? Sustainable construction can be of anything you fancy in your property or possibly a new house on a piece of land you can acquire. You can easily make it more than a pipe-dream.

Reviewing transition agricultural practice

Would you prefer your food local and with fair prices, or supermarket-displayed from sources near and far? We know farmers get a raw deal from the food industry, and French and British farms are going under regularly, as bankruptcy grows. Here is a solution that works in many countries. Is it for you?

Forming better soils, gardens and farms

Forming better soils, gardens and farms

Posted Wed, 30 Apr 2014 10:00:00 GMT by Dave Armstrong

The earth is named because we live on a soil substrate on which we used to depend for almost everything. Now, it’s sad and neglected, but also creates disasters from flooding and carbon release while providing less and less in the way of crops. Research like this paper has to be pushed hard to solve this enormously significant problem.

When will people, especially governments, believe those who are far better qualified than they are to judge the earth and its workings. When hell freezes over, perhaps? No, I'm sorry, it's when earth becomes hell, as it already has for the victims of increasing climate change.

Trees-the solution to flooding?

Trees-the solution to flooding?

Wilding can mean the bears and wolves and lions of previous millennia returning to our neighbourhood. It also refers to more vegetative matters. The trees and other producers here are also the water retainers for any watershed. Without bogs and forests, the run-off from rain travels quickly off the land and floods both highland and lowland.

Can we really be useful to our coastal fauna, by providing their old nurseries and larders in the form of algal forest, as well as artificial reefs and controlled fishing?

Using the energy within our bodies!

Using the energy within our bodies!

We need to be greener. So why not use the plentiful energy within the body. It won’t power a city, but the uses of 'internal energy sources' would be very interesting. New energy sources have not been researched inside the organism, but the potential in the human body and in environmental monitoring within other species, for example is beyond belief.

The first Earth Day was celebrated on 22nd April 1970, initially in the United States. The UN instituted International Mother Earth Day to coincide with Earth Day. Despite massive world-wide interest in environmental topics, International Mother Earth Day was only endorsed by 50 member states.
