One Massive Pile of Garbage Floating in the Pacific! No “Nurdles for Turtles”

For those who don’t know, there is a patch of garbage that stretches from the US to JAPAN. One massive pile of garbage, floating in the pacific, killing every animal that is unfortunate enough to get too close. This is the legacy we are leaving our children… Did You Know? Plastic resin pellets called "nurdles" are some of the most common bits of pollution littering the oceans. These pea-size nubs are manufactured by the billions and used as raw materials in the making of plastic goods... Read more [...]

What is Urban Agriculture?

GreenDustries and Urban Agriculture Urban agriculture is the practice of cultivating, processing and distributing food in, or around (peri-urban), a village, town or city. Urban agriculture in addition can also involve animal husbandry, aquaculture, agro-forestry and horticulture... by Wikepedia. We live in an increasingly urban world. Seventy-five percent of the people in so-called industrialized countries already live in towns and cities and urbanization has become a global phenomenon in the last half-century. The resultant mass movement of people from farms and rural villages everywhere constitutes the greatest human migration in history. It seems likely that fully half of the human family is city dwellers since the year 2000... Read more [...]


What's up in the sky?

All what is reported bellow is from:

I always looked at the sky and it made me feel good, it felt like an uncorrupted part of our universe. Unfortunately, in my research I stumbled upon all sorts of articles about “chemtrails”, I read it and almost fell out of my chair…. I was so confuse and amazed at the same time that I felt the need to present it to you and get your opinion before deciding if this is really happening…could our world be so twisted? Read more [...]

Bees, and Survival of the Human Race.

Bee We decided this time to explain the importance of the Bees in our everyday life. Very few people know what is going on with the world’s bee population and the effect they have on our food supply. So let’s talk about it. Here too we need to restrict our desire of wanting everything to look perfect. We will have to welcome a few weeds and chards, pulling them out of the garden by hand; knowing that this is the way to act from now on to protect our ecosystem. Why? This is why. Common pesticides could be wiping out bee colonies by causing pollen-gathering insects to lose their way home, research suggests. Two studies provide strong evidence that pesticides sprayed on farmers' fields, and used on private gardening ... Read more [...]

Reconceive Environment and Sustainability.

Reconceive Environment and Sustainability. Martin Luther King Jr. taught us, by word and example, that any movement — any culture —will fail if it cannot paint a picture of a world that people will want to go to. As others have said, his speech was not called “I Have a Nightmare.” For decades, our culture has struggled with two addictions, to oil and to despair. It’s pretty clear by now that we can’t kick one of those habits without kicking the other. Yet, for many Americans, perhaps most of us, thinking about the future conjures up images of “Blade Runner,” “Mad Max” or Cormac McCarthy’s “The Road”: a post-apocalyptic dystopia stripped of nature. We seem drawn to that flame. It’s a dangerous fixation. Think how children and young people must feel today, growing up in a time when so many adults seem to accept, with a shrug, only darkness ahead... Read more [...]

Humans change the world! What drought are you talking about?

Humans change the world! What drought are you talking about? A drought is a period of unusually persistent dry weather that persists long enough to cause serious problems such as crop damage and or water supply shortages. The severity depends upon the degree of moisture deficiency, the duration, and the size of the affected area. The major effects of climate change on water systems take place through changes in the hydrological cycle, basically the balance between temperature, and rainfall. Whilst some regions may have higher rainfalls this can evaporate through sustained increases in temperature... Read more [...]
