L’EVEIL DE LA PERMACULTURE - Bande-Annonce. The Choice is Ours (2016) Official Full Version. Tesla's OFF-GRID Generator. Aims and Proposals. The plans of The Venus Project offer society a broader spectrum of choices based on the scientific possibilities directed toward a new era of peace and sustainability for all.

Aims and Proposals

Through the implementation of a global Resourced Based Economy, and a multitude of innovative and environmentally friendly technologies directly applied to the social system, The Venus Project proposals will dramatically reduce crime, poverty, hunger, homelessness, and many other pressing problems that are common throughout the world today. One of the cornerstones of the organization’s findings is the fact that many of the dysfunctional behaviors of today’s society stem directly from the dehumanizing environment of a monetary system. In addition, automation has resulted in the technological replacement of human labor by machines and eventually most people will not have the purchasing power to buy the goods and services turned out. The Venus Project. The Venus Project is an organization that proposes a feasible plan of action for social change, one that works towards a peaceful and sustainable global civilization.

The Venus Project

It outlines an alternative to strive toward where human rights are no longer paper proclamations but a way of life. We propose a fresh, holistic approach – one that is dedicated to human and environmental concerns. El proceso de desalación.

5 easy swaps to reduce your water footprint

The book looks beyond the everyday water uses that we’re most familer with, like showering and cooking, and explores the water that we rely on unknowingly. This is the “virtual water” that grows the food we eat, is used to generate electricity, and produce our electronics. Will water footprinting help companies better manage the resource? Water is not just vital to sustain life; it's also a crucial resource for businesses.

Will water footprinting help companies better manage the resource?

From food and clothing to cars and mobile phones, water is an essential input. But if you don't know how much you are using or how much is available to use in a given catchment, it's impossible to reduce water use or identify threats to operations from water scarcity. In a recent survey, chief executives and world leaders said they regarded water availability in the top five global risks to business — and with good reason. Water scarcity or pollution incidents can halt production, disrupt the supply chain, lead to conflict with other water users, such as farmers or communities in the area, and harm corporate reputations.

And, the researchers say, that's not a good thing. The team's new study is the first to show that degrading plastics are leaching potentially toxic chemicals such as bisphenol A into the seas, possibly threatening ocean animals, and us. The Story of Bottled Water. The Story of Bottled Water, released on March 22, 2010 (World Water Day), employs the Story of Stuff style to tell the story of manufactured demand—how you get Americans to buy more than half a billion bottles of water every week when it already flows virtually free from the tap.

The Story of Bottled Water

Over five minutes, the film explores the bottled water industry’s attacks on tap water and its use of seductive, environmental-themed advertising to cover up the mountains of plastic waste it produces. The film concludes with a call for viewers to make a personal commitment to avoid bottled water and support public investment in clean, available tap water for all. Credits.

To him, it looks like a jellyfish, its general shape and consistency swaying and catching the light in just the right way. He swims toward it and ingests the bag in one gulp, satisfying his hunger, and then goes on his away. In actuality, that plastic bag lines his gut, causing digestive blockages and the sea turtle’s eventual death from starvation. This is why a sea turtle could confuse a plastic bag with a jellyfish (Plastic Pollution Coalition) This story is all too common in the marine environment.

It's in your body, the food you eat and the beverages you drink. You use it to clean yourself, your clothes, your dishes, your car and everything else around you. You can travel on it or jump in it to cool off on hot summer days. Many of the products that you use every day contain it or were manufactured using it. All forms of life need it, and if they don't get enough of it, they die. Pollution in Panama.

Pollution in Panama

ENVIRONMENT-PANAMA: Water Quality Decling Due to Pollution. Environment, Headlines, Latin America & the Caribbean Silvio Hernández - The quality of Panama’s drinking water, a source of pride for this Central American country until around 10 years ago, has suffered a severe decline due to urban sprawl, chaotic growth of industry, deforestation and the pollution of water sources.

ENVIRONMENT-PANAMA: Water Quality Decling Due to Pollution

Independent experts, the Panama canal commission and the governmental Institute of National Aqueducts and Sewer Systems (Idaan) warn that the country could be left without clean water by the year 2010 if urgent measures are not taken. Water Quality is Impaired by Agricultural Runoff in Panama and the United States – COHA. By: Wren Greaney, Research Associate at the Council on Hemispheric Affairs Failures of past Panamanian governments to effectively regulate farming and to consider the broad, and often deleterious, effects of chemicals being used in agriculture have significantly impaired water quality in rural regions of Panama. Poor management and minimal regulation of pesticides and herbicides can profoundly contribute to water pollution from agricultural runoff. Because Panama’s policies have not effectively addressed the problem of agricultural runoff, the nation is facing public health issues tied to persistent water pollution.

Agricultural Causes In Panama, toxic pesticides often enter and pollute bodies of water used for drinking, cooking and other domestic tasks. ENVIRONMENT-PANAMA: Alternative Solutions to Marine Pollution. Development & Aid, Environment, Headlines, Latin America & the Caribbean David Carrasco - Explosive urban growth has resulted in greater waste production, leading city authorities to consider an alternative waste water treatment system, used in the rehabilitation of coastal areas in Brazil and Chile, to clean up the polluted Bay of Panama.

Astrid Wolf, president of the Panama City Urban Development Commission, told IPS that the level of marine pollution along the Pacific coast is a major ecological challenge for local residents. As a result, she said, the city’s real estate commission is studying a proposal by a Brazilian consortium for developing a deep-well, aerobic treatment process for waste-water, before it reaches the sea. Panama - Country Water Partnerships - ABOUT GWP. Ocean Pollution. Water Pollution. What is water pollution? Water pollution happens when toxic substances enter water bodies such as lakes, rivers, oceans and so on, getting dissolved in them, lying suspended in the water or depositing on the bed. This degrades the quality of water. Not only does this spell disaster for aquatic ecosystems, the pollutants also seep through and reach the groundwater, which might end up in our households as contaminated water we use in our daily activities, including drinking.
