Heavenly Messenger: How One Small Siberian Crane Transformed Taiwan (Formosa), Part 2 of 4

The little crane is really intelligent. When I met him at the farm, he stood on the ridge and called "jiu jiu-jiu," "jiu jiu-jiu." One "Jiu" and then two more. He would call like that. How strange! He's very intelligent and sensitive. When the lotus flowers are blossoming, there are many tourists. The little crane wanted to peck at people all the time. But when I went to him and scolded him, he did somewhere else. It's true. This little crane is like a person and understands people.

Due to global warming and climate change, the water level gets too high or too low in the habitat, so the White Cranes can’t find enough eelgrass to eat. Then they move out of their habitat center to look for food, causing conflict between humans and the cranes. This might be the reason their appearance has been newly recorded in the last two years in Japan, Taiwan (Formosa), and Hong Kong. In Spring, the cranes start to fly to the north, leaving Poyang Lake as their winter habitat and flying for 2,000 km towards the northeast to Momege Nature Reserve in Jilin Province of Northeast China.

Tiny Houses: An Eco-friendly Way of Living

Many eco-conscious people choose to live in tiny houses. They require fewer materials to build than traditional houses and so are highly economical. They also use less energy to run, require fewer resources to maintain, and help minimize household clutter, which in turn reduces the time needed for cleaning and organizing. Therefore, tiny homes offer owners more time and freedom to relax, travel, or partake in other beneficial activities. What’s more, some tiny houses are small and light enough to tow, having wheels rather than foundations, and others can float.

When I look back at this story again today, I realize it's not just about the little crane's amazing journey, but about mine as well. It was a turning point in my life. Because of this little crane, I had the chance to see through his eyes. I went to his habitat, the place to spend the winter, and the place where he was born. I visited Siberia, Poyang Lake, and Momoge. I learned about the harsh environment of his habitat. It's very difficult.

The Joys and Benefits of Organic Farming: Interview with Mr. Helmut Butolen, Part 1 of 2

The Joys and Benefits of Organic Farming: Interview with Mr. Helmut Butolen, Part 1 of 2

The greatest challenge for an organic farmer is always the climate. We live here in a cold temperate climate. But has changed a lot in the last 20 years and it comes again and again to bigger dry periods and then to strong rain again. It’s not as it was 20 years ago. You have to cope with it. You have to make sure that you select your plants correctly and choose what you grow correctly. The second big challenge is of course that we have no plant growth in winter. But the customers also want to be supplied in winter. This means that you always have to make sure you have good storage facilities and a sufficient variety even in winter.

Creative Transformations of Plastic Waste

Creative Transformations of Plastic Waste

Plastic is very inexpensive, easy to produce, light, and can be used in an incredible amount of ways. However, with all these benefits, there are enormous costs. About half of all plastic is used just one time and then discarded. Our beautiful seas are now an immense rubbish bin that no one empties. To degrade and the pervasive plastic shopping bag can take 10 to 1000 years to decompose. Many brilliant individuals, organizations, and companies around the world care deeply about this issue and are working to take a portion of the unending flow of plastic waste and give it new life.

There are a lot of people who say, “I’d love to try that, too.” It’s not as difficult as it looks. You have to start the whole thing slowly and with a sense of what is appropriate. We also do small courses here. That is, everyone who is interested is invited at any time and can learn how to grow vegetables efficiently here. To extend the season for growing vegetables, Mr. Butolen has constructed a homemade greenhouse.

Consequences of Global Warming, Part 1 of 2

Our home, the beautiful planet earth, functions like a giant living organism made of many interrelated components. These components are constantly interacting to bring a harmonious balance to earth’s ecosystem, atmosphere, and weather-they function in unison to support all life on the planet. Sadly, planet earth is undergoing drastic changes and rapidly heating up. Greenhouse gas emissions are altering the climate drastically, threatening all life on earth. These emissions, namely carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, trap heat in the atmosphere and cause our planet to get warmer.

COP-24 - World Leaders Call for a Sustainable Planet, Part 1 of 2

From December 2-14, 2018, the United Nations Conference of the Parties Climate Change Conference (COP-24) was held in Katowice, Poland. Which called for a worldwide reduction in greenhouse gas emissions to curb global warming. And that we have just over a decade to bring emissions under control. According to scientists, livestock raising is responsible for approximately 51% of all greenhouse gas emissions. Now really, it’s very important to reduce the meat consumption, to change our ways to produce and to consume if we want to fight against climate change. It’s good for you. It’s good for the planet.

Algae: Earth’s Most Essential Organisms

Algae are among the most important organisms on Earth as they produce 50% to 85% of the planet's oxygen. Trees perform this function as well, but because our beautiful world is made up of much more water than land, aquatic plants such as algae produce most of the global oxygen supply, a vital life source for all beings. Microalgae, more commonly known as phytoplankton, are found in both the benthic (sea floor) and littoral zones of oceans and rivers. As photosynthetic organisms, these plants play key roles in the ecosystems of oceans and are the basis of the marine food chain.
