  1. Check out this interesting video on Dutch "aquatecture" and sustainable buildings that float on the water - ideal housing solutions in a world where global sea levels are rising.      I would love to live in one of those floating villas! What about you? Do you think Dutch "aquatecture" can become a solution for not just the rich but for the world's poor who are living near rising sea levels?
  2. The United Kingdom will have a general election tomorrow. One party that has seen a huge influx of new members lately is the Green Party. The Greens have high hopes to make substantial progress towards the UK's parliament - or at least help push for more climate action and sustainable policies - during this election. But to be able to gain more support and political power the Greens will have to attract more people than their average young, well-educated and - let's be honest - hippie voter. In this video the Guardian follows a few campaign workers from the Green Party as they try to reach out to working-class and ethnic minority voters in areas where the political interest is low, and where the few people who participate in elections predominantly tend to vote for the more established parties - or even the fascist UKIP. Watch the video: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x2passo_the-greens-a-voice-for-the-voiceless-or-a-middle-class-sect-video_news Will the Greens be able to become a voice for the voiceless or will they, as the Guardian puts it, remain a middle-class sect?  
  3. This '>amazing video will warm your heart and make you cry tears of joy. A chimpanzee named Wounda is being released into the wild by Dr. Jane Goodall and some keepers. Before Wounda leaps out into freedom, she gives Goodall a long hug.
  4. China appears to be losing its appetite for shark fin, a popular delicacy served at state functions, weddings and business dinners as a sign of wealth and prosperity. A government ban on the controversial delicacy at state banquets and official functions last year is now being adopted by restaurants and hotels. Scientists estimate 100 million sharks were killed for their fins last year earning the trade more than a billion dollars. Al Jazeera's '>Craig Leeson reports from Beijing.   Watch the video:   
  5. This video is quite good! Sure the installation costs of wind power might be high, but once they are up and running wind power will save us money. Australia's Renewable Energy Target Explained The renewable energy target is hard to understand for many consumers, so we made this video to make it easier and explain how it can make a positive impact on your household bills.
  6. Check out this video which shows the life of a polar bear as she kills a seal, swim and meet another polar bear, all from the point of view (POV) of the actual polar bear.   This video was edited and compiled from raw footage recorded by a camera equipped radio collar that was put on a female polar bear in the Beaufort Sea during April 2014 by the US Geological Survey. The video, which is the first ever from a free-ranging polar bear on Arctic sea ice, shows an interaction with a potential mate, playing with food, and swimming at the water's surface and under the sea ice. These videos will be used by the US Geological Survey in research to understand polar bear behavior and energetics in an Arctic with declining sea ice.
  7. Apple today released a new video ad, narrated by Apple CEO Tim Cook, that has a big focus on how the company uses green power, such as photovoltaic solar panels, to power their servers and business. '>Watch the video here. Apple has also updated a section of their website which highlight the company's various environmental initiatives.     "Now more than ever we will work to leave the world better than we found it," Cook says while the video shows photos of their manufacturing process and a field with solar panels.   The video has some truths to it. Under Cook's leadership, Apple has moved away from dirty energy (among other things), which they have been heavily criticized for in the past. Now Apple is being >praised by Greenpeace for their use of renewable energy.   It's encouraging to see corporations embracing renewable energy to power their businesses. But in my opinion, this is just brand advertising that ignores the negative environmental effects that comes from mass consumption of technology devices and gadgets - something which Apple is heavily promoting.   What do you think?
  8. When mainstream media covers various topics they often do so by having a “balanced” coverage – that is when the media gives equal time to both sides of a story. When it comes to climate change this usually takes the form of “debates” where a climate skeptic debates the topic with a global warming “believer”. But this balanced reporting is totally inappropriate when it comes to climate change. It only gives the viewer a false idea of the state of climate science, while reducing global warming from the complex question it really is to a simplistic debate topic about whether or not it really exists – resulting in easy answers, populist views, quick fixes and confused viewers. It’s no wonder that this makes people question global warming despite the fact that, in reality, there is no debate. The scientific support for anthropogenic climate change is massive and unquestionable. That’s why this climate segment from Last Week Tonight - John Oliver’s new show on HBO - is so great and spot-on. Oliver first explains why there really should be no climate debate, at all. He continues by demonstrating, with the help from Bill Nye the Science Guy, what an appropriate TV-debate should look like if the mainstream media followed the science behind climate change. His “statistically accurate” climate debate then pits three global warming skeptics against Bill Nye and 96 scientists. The result is simply hilarious! The science behind John Oliver’s “statistically accurate” debate comes from a study made in 2013. The study examined over 12000 peer-reviewed climate science papers and came to the conclusion that 97 percent of those papers supported the view that humans are responsible for climate change.
  9. Two recently released videos ('>video 1 and '>video 2) seems to be showing a cruise ship employee throwing bags of garbage into the ocean. The videos were apparently filmed covertly by a former crewman aboard the Magnifica, a cruise ship owned by the Geneva-based company MSC Cruises. The dumping took place in Brazilian waters near a marine sanctuary. Besides the obvious environmental damage, the dumping is also a violation of international law. According to Jim Walker, blogger and maritime lawyer, the dumping of garbage bags is a common practice by cruise ships like this one.    
  10. Hundreds of socialists, environmentalists and climate activists attended the first Ecosocialist Conference in New York City last month. One of the featured speakers at the conference was Jill Stein, the nominee of the Green Party during the 2012 national election in the US, who held a talk about how capitalism is killing the planet. Besides linking the economic and climate crisis, Stein also discussed the politics of fear, Barack Obama's environmental failure and the highly controversial Keystone XL pipeline. You can watch her 30 minute long talk in this video. If you want to learn more about the conference, John Riddell covered it in more detail here on Green Blog.
  11. Here is the full video of Al Gore's testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee about repowering America and the need for USA to resume global leadership on the climate crisis. You can read and watch his opening statement here. Watch part one of the testimony below:
  12. George Monbiot talks with Yvo de Boer, the current Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, in the first of a series of interviews from the Guardian. In the video you can, for example, see Yvo de Boer defend George Bush and expensive Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) projects. "In the first of a remarkable series of video interviews, Britain's leading green commentator, George Monbiot, charges the UN's leading climate change official with lacking ambition for a global emissions deal, and takes him to task over expensive carbon offset schemes and his support for the US president, George Bush. In the coming weeks, Monbiot takes on the bosses of Shell and the International Energy Agency and more." Watch George Monbiot meets Yvo de Boer on the Guardian.
