Conservation Agriculture - Growing into a Brighter Future: Interview with Dr. Amir Kassam, Part 2 of 2 (INT)

Conservation Agriculture - Growing into a Brighter Future: Interview with Dr. Amir Kassam, Part 2 of 2 (INT)

Conservation agriculture is a new method of farming with a wide range of environmental benefits. That, if on a large-area basis, all the farmers convert to conservation agriculture, that means that we have agriculture which is not a net emitter of greenhouse gases, but it becomes a mitigator of global warming. And also, farmers find that instead of polluting the atmosphere with carbon dioxide, it gets locked into the soil, it improves their soil health and soil productivity. And that means that the whole soil function changes. And in the long term, we have to change our education system. And also, the institutions, research and extension systems which are there to help the farmers must begin to align themselves behind this new paradigm.

Conservation Agriculture - Growing into a Brighter Future: Interview with Dr. Amir Kassam, Part 1 of 2 (INT)

No soil erosion should be taking place. And now we can achieve that with conservation agriculture, the new paradigm of agriculture about which farmers are beginning to learn and are adopting more and more, which is a no-till agriculture. It is farming which basically emulates as closely as possible what happens in the natural world, how nature takes care of the land. In nature there is no plowing. In nature soil health is being looked after through biomass, a return of biomass. And also, the third aspect of conservation agriculture is diversification.

Living Sustainably Off the Grid

Living Sustainably Off the Grid

Living off the grid is an evolving lifestyle that reduces an individual’s environmental impact and saves money by eliminating utility bills. It also offers a sense of mental and physical independence and the satisfaction that one’s own efforts are benefiting the environment. Now let’s look at some examples of off-the-grid living. In the 1970s US architect Mr. Michael Reynolds designed an off-the-grid house called Earthship. Since then, Earthship has become well-known and is being built around the globe.

Nations Declare Climate Change as a Global Emergency Part 3 of 3: Interview with Ms. Polly Higgins

On today’s program, Ms. Higgins explains why additional laws need to be enacted to address the urgent issue of climate change. Ms. Higgins has a special message for governments and corporations. We each carry a duty of care for ourselves, for our families, for our communities, but also, we do actually have a duty of care, a moral duty of care that extends to our Earth. Our Earth is ultimately our universal home. And that moral duty of care can be translated into law. Scientists have concluded that raising livestock is one of the most significant contributors to global warming.

Nations Declare Climate Change as a Global Emergency Part 2 of 3: Interview with Mr. Wouter Veening

Governments, especially the leaders of the Government, the prime ministers or the presidents should really speak out and add their face to the cause of climate change. And They should speak up and stand up for climate change, which by definition is an international issue; it’s a global issue, international issue. And you have to plant trees and protect the tropical rainforest, protect the mangroves; plant more mangroves. They all suck the CO2 out of the atmosphere. Meat from animals is one of the major factors which causes global warming and climate change, etcetera. For the individual citizens, just be vegetarian (vegan), then everything else will become clear and the planet will be saved. That is the most effective and fastest way to save our planet.

Melati and Isabel Wijsen: Making Bali Plastic Bag Free

In 2013 the sisters Melati and Isabel Wijsen, aged 12 and 10, started the Bye Bye Plastic Bags movement to minimize plastic waste on Bali and around the world. After gathering volunteer teams from schools all over the island, they started signature petitions, offered educational presentations at schools, met with people at markets and festivals, and organized beach clean-ups to raise awareness, and distributed reusable bags. This is our vision. We want Bali to be a free-of-plastic-bags island. We can do it, definitely. Yes!

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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 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.

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.

An organic farm is using non-conventional practices, having multiple crops, that aren’t exactly one variety. We basically encompass everything that is organic agriculture. So, we apply organic practices. We make sure that our land is suitable for organic production, but we do not use any animal byproducts, so no animal fertilizers, no fish emulsion, no cow meal, no feather meal, no herbicides or pesticides, it’s being in complete compliance with nature. Rather than harming nature, we try to find a symbiotic relationship with nature, working with the environment around us, rather than degrading it.
