Permaculture: How to produce food without destroying the planet [Video]

Agriculture accounts for 17 percent of worldwide CO2 emissions. But what if there were a way to produce it without harming the planet? The idea is called permaculture – growing vegetables in a circular, self-sustaining system, without artificial pesticides or fertilizer.We’re destroying our environment at an alarming rate. But it doesn’t need to be this way. Our new channel Planet A explores the shift towards an eco-friendly world — and challenges our ideas about what dealing with climate change means. We look at the big and the small: What we can do and how the system needs to change. Every Friday we’ll take a truly global look at how to get us out of this mess.#PlanetA #Permaculture #SustainableAgricultureRead More (Links):Permaculture methods and principles: https://permacultureprinciples.com/resources/free-downloads/Scientific studies for permaculture methods: https://www.mdpi.com/2071-1050/10/9/3218Scalability and commercial possibilities for permaculture: https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s13165-020-00281-8Permaculture projects worldwide: https://permacultureglobal.org/Special thanks to: Simin Fadee, Immo Fiebrig, Narsanna Koppula, Julius Reiff and Sabine Zikeli for background interviews. 0:00 Intro1:02 Farming the permaculture way2:02 What is permaculture?2:75 Design and water management4:39 Building up the soil5:22 Polyculture, habitats and pesticides7:21 Permaculture worldwide8:04 The future of permaculture10:44 ConclusionReporter: Kiyo DörrerCamera & video editor: Henning GollSupervising editor: Joanna GottschalkSpecial thanks to: Simin Fadee, Immo Fiebrig, Narsanna Koppula, Julius Reiff and Sabine Zikeli for background interviews.

Puna Geothermal Venture | Spectroom [Video]

The Puna Geothermal Venture (PGV) is a currently nonoperational geothermal energy power plant on the island of Hawaii, the largest island in the state of Hawaii. The plant was shut down shortly after the start of the May 2018 lower Puna eruption. The eruption caused lava to flow over a power substation, a warehouse and at least three geothermal wells that had been preventatively quenched and capped when lava fountains erupted nearby, eventually also cutting off road access.

Our Planet’s Determining Decade [Video]

It’s not too late to plug into landscape scale conservation, from the largest restoration project in Sierra Nevada history to the science of restoring endangered species. This April, The Nature Conservancy (TNC) launched the Determining Decade Campaign to rally Californians to meet the moment that will define our planet’s future. Participants took environmental action in their own lives and learned about TNC’s work in California. Watch the video to follow along on this journey and to see what we can accomplish together.

Climate change Stop smoke and mirrors rich nations told [Video]

Rich countries’ plans to curb carbon are “smoke and mirrors” and must be urgently improved, say poorer nations. Ministers meeting here in Milan at the final UN session before the Glasgow COP26 climate conference heard that some progress was being made. But officials from developing countries demanded tougher targets for cutting carbon emissions and more cash to combat climate change. One minister condemned “selfishness or lack of good faith” in the rich world. US special envoy John Kerry said all major economies “must stretch” to do the maximum they can. Around 50 ministers from a range of countries met here to try to overcome some significant hurdles before world leaders gather in Glasgow in November. But for extremely vulnerable countries to a changing climate the priority is more ambitious carbon reductions from the rich, to preserve the 1.5C temperature target set by the 2015 Paris agreement. Scientists have warned that allowing the world temperatures to rise more than 1.5C above pre-industrial levels is highly dangerous. An assessment of the promises made so far to cut carbon suggests that the world is on track for around 2.7C. Ministers from developing countries say this is just not acceptable – they are already experiencing significant impacts on their economies with warming currently just over 1C.”We’re already on hellish ground at 1.1C,” said Simon Steill, Grenada’s environment minister who argues that the plans in place just weren’t good enough to prevent disaster for his island state.”We’re talking about lives, we’re talking about livelihoods, they cannot apply smoke and mirrors to that.””Every action that is taken, every decision that is taken, has to be aligned with 1.5C, we have no choice.”Some delegates felt that richer countries aren’t sufficiently engaged on the issue of 1.5C, because they are wealthy enough to adapt to the changes.”They don’t care about 1.5C because if there’s sea level rise, they have the means to build sea walls, and they are just remaining there in their high walls of comfort,” said Tosi Mpanu Mpanu, from the Democratic Republic of Congo.”Some countries are willing to do things but they don’t have the means, some have the means but are not willing to do things. Now how do we find the right choreography?”On this question of choreography, ministers were in agreement that the G20 group of countries should be leading the dance. Mr Kerry called on India and China, who are part of the G20, to put new carbon plans on the table before leaders gather in Glasgow.”All G20 countries, all large economies, all need to try to stretch to do more,” he told the gathering.”I’m not singling out one nation over another. But I am encouraging all of us to try to do the maximum we can.”The mood on the street in Milan could not have contrasted more sharply with the formal, political roundtable discussions inside the PreCOP26 conference.All data is taken from the source: http://bbc.comArticle Link: https://www.bbc.com/news/science-envi…#countries #newsheadlines #newstodayheadlines #newstodaybbc #newstodayfox #newsworldabc #
