44 Ways To Catch Rain

First and foremost that comes to mind is drinking some of it. It takes such sophisticated equipment to rapidly remove salt from the ocean, yet our planet was designed with a most amazing filtration system that leaves the salt in the ocean, and puts fresh water in the sky to fall all around our planet. How wise of us it is that we find ways to capture some of it and keep it nearby. The majority of rain in coastal areas goes immediately back to the ocean, so the more of it we can store before it goes back the the sea, the more prepared we might be for dry our drought conditions presently or in the future.

In John Wyndham’s apocalyptic novel, the triffids were carnivorous plants that didn’t need roots and had developed three legs to allow them to find prey (whose nitrogen they fed on instead). They were originally bred by humans to provide high-quality vegetable oil, since the growing population’s demand for food was outstripping supply. Initially contained on farms, the triffids escaped following an “extreme celestial event” and began to terrorise the human population. Replace “breeding” with “genetic modification” and you have the contemporary cautionary tale about the threat of “Frankenfoods” to human health and the environment. Semencesbuissonnieres on Vimeo.

[Video] Today, agriculture is more efficient than ever, but it's also more dependent on environmental, technological, and social issues like never before. Climate change, drought and other disasters, shifting energy landscapes, population growth, urbanization, GMOs, changes in the workforce, automation — these are just a handful of the factors that affect the global access to food.
