In the Arctic, where air temperatures are rising at about twice the global rate, scientists are seeing major shifts in plant life. Trees and shrubs are expanding by pushing northward, while the low-to-the-ground tundra plants to their north are shrinking in range. In this visualization, watch these changes and the influence they are forecasted to have on the climate system. For background information, educational resources, and more, visit Greening of the Arctic on the Science Bulletins Web site.

Petroleum-rich Qatar is spearheading projects to tackle the problems facing desert communities worldwide; from energy to fresh water and food production. But does their expensive, high-tech solution make sense?

"Qatar in many ways is ground zero for a lot of the challenges we're going to see in the century ahead", argues US ex-pat Jonathan Smith, from the Qatar National Food Program. Soaring temperatures, swelling populations and minimal rainfall plague the otherwise booming nation. Now its leaders are pushing ambitious experiments like the Sahara Forest Project, transforming seawater and sunlight into fresh water, vegetables, electricity, biofuel and animal feed. "The techniques we're developing here can be applied in many regions in the world", the project scientists insist.

Norfolk, Virginia spends $6 million a year to elevate roads, improve drainage, and help homeowners raise their houses, according to BBC. Already, 5 percent to 10 percent of the city’s lowest-lying neighborhoods have heavy flooding. The world’s largest naval base, based in Norfolk, is spending hundreds of millions to replace piers to withstand rising water.

My Potato Project; The Importance of "Organic"

3rd grader Elise, uses three types of sweet potatoes in her experiment - non-organic, big-agriculture organic, and local organic.

The non-organic, 'conventional' sweet potato never sprouts because conventional sweet potatoes are sprayed with chlorpropham, also known as 'budnip' an herbicide which is a plant growth inhibitor, so that the potato may be stored long-term.

The FDA states, "In studies using laboratory animals, chlorpropham generally has been shown to be of low acute toxicity. It is slightly toxic by the oral route and has been placed in Toxicity Category III (the second lowest of four categories) for this effect." And they claim that chronic dietary risk is minimal. (epa.gov) If your child eats many conventional sweet potatoes, you might think about switching to organic potatoes.

 

 
 
 
 





When you eat something loaded with sugar, your taste buds, your gut and your brain all take notice. This activation of your reward system is not unlike how bodies process addictive substances such as alcohol or nicotine -- an overload of sugar spikes dopamine levels and leaves you craving more. Nicole Avena explains why sweets and treats should be enjoyed in moderation.

Oklahoma City is a midsized town that had a big problem: It was among the most obese towns in America. Mayor Mick Cornett realized that, to make his city a great place to work and live, it had to become healthier too. In this charming talk, he walks us through the interlocking changes that helped OKC drop a collective million pounds (450,000 kilos).

The world is noticing Oklahoma City’s renaissance and its mayor, Mick Cornett. His list of awards includes nods for urban design, health, sports and the arts. Newsweek called him one of the five most innovative mayors in the country. London-based World Mayors listed him as the No. 2 mayor in the world, and Governing magazine named him the Public Official of the Year.
 
Best known for helping Oklahoma City attract an NBA franchise and putting Oklahoma City “on a diet,” Cornett also led the charge to pass MAPS 3, an innovative $800 million investment in parks, urban transit, wellness centers and infrastructure that will dramatically reshape Oklahoma City and enhance the quality of life of its residents.


 

 
 
 
 





Automatic is a Smart Driving Assistant that connects your car to your smartphone and makes driving safer, more efficient, and fun. www.automatic.com

Just plug the Automatic Link into your car's data port. Your car and smartphone will automatically connect whenever you drive in the U.S., wirelessly. Works with just about any gasoline engine car sold in the U.S. since 1996.

The Link is an auto accessory that talks to your car's onboard computer and uses your smartphone's GPS and data plan to upgrade your car's capabilities. Every Link works with both iPhone and Android.

Automatic helps you make small changes in your driving habits that can lead to huge savings on gas over time.

Automatic contacts help in a crash. Crash Alert can detect a crash and notify local authorities with your location even if you can't. Crash Alert only works in the US. In a crash, it requires an adequate location (GPS) signal, connection to the Link, and cellular data connection. It cannot contact local authorities or emergency contacts if your Link or iPhone is damaged or disconnected by the crash.

Automatic connects to your car's onboard computer to decipher that little 'check engine' light and explain exactly what's wrong.

Automatic always remembers where you parked, so you don't have to.

Into The Atmosphere” is a tribute to the state of California and the beautiful deserts, mountains and coastlines that exist there. This video showcases a variety of national/state parks as well as less recognized natural areas. The video also focuses on clouds, fog and interesting atmospheric conditions. Although California is known for blue sunshine skies, seeing a colorful storm cloud over Half Dome or an incredible sunset at the La Jolla Coves is really a sight to see. The goal of this video is to show these environments in their best possible light.

This video was an ongoing project for about a year with an estimated 75,000 images taken, and about 12,400 made it into the 3.5 minute piece.

To create this video there were many nights sleeping outside, and many days spent in the wild to embrace the environment and get to know the surroundings. There is a common misconception about Timelapse shooters that we quickly set up cameras and go sleep in the car for hours at a time, which is far from the truth. We are constantly hiking heavy equipment through dangerous areas and spending time camping in uncomfortable situations, I love it and wouldn't trade it for anything else.

Some of the locations are Mono Lake, Anza Borrego Desert, Alabama Hills, Trona Pinnacles, Big Sur, Mount Laguna, Santa Maria, Yosemite, Gaviota, The Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest, La Jolla Coves, Santa Ynez, the San Francisco Coast, and the Santa Barbara Mountains.

Waste to Waves is a program that recycles waste polystyrene foam into new surfboards.

They say surfers are an indicator species. They are the first affected when the natural environment gets degraded. Hence, they are watchdogs, activists and trend-setters. However, foam and fiberglass, the two materials that make up the very symbol of their pursuit, are both toxic materials. So, they're also a bit hypocritical. Fortunately, Reef has joined forces with SustainableSurf.org to help create a program where surfers can recycle packing styrofoam so that it may one day be a surfboard blank. It's a small step, but if we're going to pass on what we love, leading by example is as important as a solid cutback.

Waste to Waves is a program by non-profit Sustainable Surf.

Amazon's Prime Air might be available to customers in 4 to 5 years, so says Jeff Bezos, CEO and founder of Amazon. Amazon has been working on the project in their next generation R&D lab. The goal of this new delivery system is to get packages into customers' hands in 30 minutes or less, from one of their 96 distribution centers, using unmanned aerial vehicles that can carry up to five pounds. Putting Prime Air into commercial use will take a number of years as they await the necessary FAA rules and regulations. This is footage from a recent test flight. See page at: amzn.to/PrimeAir

Detox: How People Power is Cleaning Up Fashion

Around the world a growing movement of people are using their creativity, design skills and purchasing power to demand fashion without pollution. United by a shared belief that the clothes we wear should carry a story we can be proud of, activists, bloggers, designers, scientists and models have been able to convince big brands including Zara, Mango, Valentino, UNIQLO and H&M to commit to toxic-free fashion. There is still a long way to go, but our successes so far prove that when we work together, big brands are forced to stand up and deliver.
