Carbon-sucking trees . Mirrors in space . Biochar . Some of the proposed solutions to climate change seem better suited to the annals of science fiction. Geo-engineering -- along with nanotechnology and bioengineering -- belongs to a class of scientific innovation that many fear will threaten the integrity of life as we know it. Humans have been innovating new technologies since the first forward-thinking caveman used a rock to crack a nut from its shell, but new technologies still sometimes manage to weird us out.
Finally, some answers. After months of trying to make the fresh oil surfacing at the Deepwater Horizon site a “nonissue,” BP has finally copped to what’s really happening at ground zero of last year’s massive oil spill – where just last week, flyover surveillance footage captured a small fleet of large “oil-related” vessels working the waters.
photo: Thierry Ehrmann / CC BY Going through all the Steve Jobs commentary this morning I came across actor-comedian-proud technophile Stephen Fry 's commentary on BBC News . Fry and Jobs have apparently been friends for a while and the whole thing is worth a listen. But there's one passage that really jumps out at me as being something the environmental community, particularly those involved in politics and those trying to motivate people to become more environmentally aware, should pay close attention to.Fry says, Steve Jobs has always understood that, as human beings, our first relationship with anything is an emotional one. ...
Acoustic ecology , sometimes called ecoacoustics or soundscape studies, is the relationship, mediated through sound, between living beings and their environment . [ 1 ] Acoustic ecology studies started in the late 1960s with R. Murray Schafer and his team at Simon Fraser University ( Vancouver , Canada ) as part of the World Soundscape Project . The original WSP team included Barry Truax and Hildegard Westerkamp , Bruce Davies and Peter Huse, among others. The first study produced by the WSP was titled The Vancouver Soundscape . The interest in this area grew enormously after this pioneer and innovative study and the area of acoustic ecology raised the interest of researchers and artists all over the world.
Biological Ignorance The history of atomic energy is one of repeated over-optimism, especially with regard to biological effects. Part of the reason for this, no doubt, is that physicists don't generally know very much biology.
Viktor Schauberger (30 June 1885 – 25 September 1958) was an Austrian forester /forest warden, naturalist , philosopher , inventor and Biomimicry experimenter. The inventor of what he called " implosion technology", Schauberger developed his own theories based on fluidic vortices and movement in nature. He built actuators for airplanes, ships, silent turbines, [ 1 ] self-cleaning pipes and equipment for cleaning and so-called "refinement" of water to create spring water, [ 2 ] which he used as a remedy. Schauberger's theories aren't accepted in the scientific community.

More and more things are happening that really shouldn’t. Is the 2012 events we are waiting for, starting already? The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has a Tsunami station in event mode activated for Station 55023 – STB Coral Sea located at 14.803 S 153.585 E (14°48’9″ S 153°35’6″ E).
