Guide Pratique de l'Écohabitat - Passerelle Eco - Ecologie

Passerelle Eco a participé pour quelques pages de cet ouvrage encyclopédique ! Notre santé ne dépend pas seulement de notre alimentation. Elle dépend aussi de ce qui nous entoure. Parmi les choses auxquelles nous sommes confrontés le plus souvent, il y a tout simplement notre habitat, dont l’influence n’est pas négligeable. C’est même observable assez facilement : comment vous sentez vous après avoir passé la majeur partie de la journée dans un immeuble high-tech ? Le livre se compose de deux parties.

HERETICAL THOUGHTS ABOUT SCIENCE AND SOCIETY By Freeman D

The Need for Heretics In the modern world, science and society often interact in a perverse way. We live in a technological society, and technology causes political problems. The politicians and the public expect science to provide answers to the problems. Scientific experts are paid and encouraged to provide answers. As a scientist I do not have much faith in predictions. We are lucky that we can be heretics today without any danger of being burned at the stake. Two years ago, I was at Cornell University celebrating the life of Tommy Gold, a famous astronomer who died at a ripe old age. Later in his life, Tommy Gold promoted another heretical idea, that the oil and natural gas in the ground come up from deep in the mantle of the earth and have nothing to do with biology. 2. The main subject of this piece is the problem of climate change.

STEWART BRAND MEETS THE CYBERNETIC COUNTERCULTURE By Fred

" We were at the headquarters of USCO ("US" company), an anonymous group of artists whose installations and events combined multiple audio and visual inputs, including film, slides, video, lighting, music, and random sounds. We were both wearing remnants of our US Army uniforms. We hit it off immediately and have been in touch consistently for the past forty-one years. USCO's mantra, "We Are All One," had already been altered to "We Are All One...except Brockman" in order to accommodate my involvement. In 1963, the group had erected a Psychedelic Tabernacle in a church half an hour outside of Manhattan, in Garnerville, New York. Brand, who preferred the term multimedia to intermedia, performed his "America Needs Indians," piece from 1964 to 1966 and performed "War: God" from 1967 to 1970. Several months later, the oversized catalog arrived packed in a long tube.
