Kelp Could Save Our Oceans — If You Eat It (HBO)
Up to eight feel below the ocean’s surface, former cod fisherman Bren Smith grows groves of a plant that he says could feed the planet and heal its oceans. “You know, for a fisherman it’s kind of weird to grow plants,” he said. “But this is the future.” Smith’s referring to kelp, a seaweed capable of soaking up five time more carbon than land-plants and filtering excess nitrogen out of the water. While popular in Asia, kelp rarely appears on American menus. But in Smith’s mind, kelp could become the new kale — and help reverse some of the dangerous effects of human-caused climate change. Smith farms his 20-acre ocean plot off the coast of Connecticut using a technique he calls “3D ocean farming,” which lets him grow various types of crops, such as oysters and mussels, on top of each other. That means his farm also functions as an artificial reef and attracts numerous species of fish and sea-dwelling birds. Despite kelp’s many environmental benefits, few North Americans have heard of it, and even less would think to cook with it. But Smith isn’t too worried about it. Google — which offers kelp to 6,000 employees in its New York City cafeteria — is already his largest customer.

China's Ionic Smog-Sucking Vacuum: Upgrade
China is in the midst of a massive industrial and economic revolution which has required large expenditures of energy. Although it is one of the world's leaders in green energy ventures, most of China's energy comes in the form of coal. We all know fossil fuels come with a hefty environmental price and they have definitely left China's mega cities with a gnarly air pollution problem. In Beijing, the majority of the factories are located right on the outskirts of the city, often laying a blanket of thick grey smog in the air. This smog which contains a class of particle known as PM 2.5 amongst other terrible things, and has lead to spikes in pulmonary diseases and other health issues among Beijingers. In this episode of Upgrade, we head to the Netherlands to talk to Daan Roosegaarde, an artist who focuses on social design projects aimed at stirring up conversation. His latest project involves a giant ionic smog crushing vacuum that he wants to put in a park in Beijing so it's citizens can enjoy clean air.

SOUNDBITE (Japanese) Tomoaki Sato, 60 year-old aquaculture farmer and shop owner: "We have to clean the sea water first and it is difficult to rebuild local farms just by Shiogama city, so we need to get help from the Japanese government. Otherwise, it will take more than five years." 14. Various of Oysters that was farmed by Sato STORYLINE Residents in the small seaside city of Shiogama in Miyagi, the prefecture that took the full impact of tsunami, face a long battle to restore their normal lives. The city's fishermen still haven't managed to get out to sea after tsunami destroyed many of their boats and coastal radiation leaks cast a shadow on Japanese fisheries. Following the March 11th earthquake and tsunami, the crippled Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant has leaked radiation into the environment and radioactive water gushed into the Pacific Ocean. This week, the government set its first-ever standard for the amount of radiation allowed in fish after levels in waters near the plant measured several million times the legal limit and elevated amounts were found in some fish. Mataichi Saito, 74 year-old fisherman from Shiogama voiced the frustration of some of the fishermen from the city. "Even if we catch fish, it is impossible for us to sell the fish because of the plant accident," he said. Aquaculture of oyster and seaweed is also the main industry in Shiogama city, but the farms were badly destroyed by Tsunami. Tomoaki Sato, 60 year-old aquaculture farmer who owns a fish shop says farmers like him need to receive help from the government. Cleaning piles of rubble on the ground is making remarkable progress, but not the contaminated sea water. At the plant, 140 miles (220 kilometres) northeast of Tokyo, workers finally halted a leak of highly contaminated water that raised worry about the safety of seafood caught off the coast. But even that rare good news came with a caveat. Highly contaminated water pooling around the plant has often made it difficult or impossible for workers to access some areas because of concerns about radiation exposure. The Japanese government has announced that the government was taking the maximum allowable radiation limit for vegetables and extending it to fish. The coastal areas hit by the 11 March tsunami make up about a fifth of Japan's huge fishing industry, but radiation fears could taint all of the country's catch through guilt by association. Japan imports far more fish than it exports, but it sent the world 2.3 (b) billion US dollars worth of seafood last year.

China's Air Pollution: A Result of Regime's Wrestling with Nature
Follow us on TWITTER: http://twitter.com/cnforbiddennews Like us on FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/chinaforbiddennews Following-up reports on China's air pollution. Beijing's Environment Monitoring Center predicted that on January 16, a cold front will help disperse air pollutants. Most city areas will have "good" air quality, and in some areas, it even can be classified as "excellent". So what happened in reality? Let's look at our report. Beijing resident, Ms. Wang, says that on 16th January, there was sun and no wind. But the sky was still hazy! Ms. Wang (Beijing resident): "Today the weather is getting slightly better. In the last few days, smog was particularly severe. Today is sunny. Ordinarily, we should have a clear line of sight. But it's still foggy now, visibility is only within 200 meters!" Gong Shengli, an expert on China issues, remarks that this is the thickest smog over the past 60 years. Snowing on 15th January helped filter out air pollutants, he says, otherwise, the situation would continue. Gong Shengli (Expert on China issues):"The growth in China's previous 30 years was based on industrial pollution emissions. Such as exploitation of oil and minerals, including gold mining. This had caused large-scale environment pollution in the past." German newspaper The Bild published a report, titled, "Smog-Alarm in Peking, China suffocated in its success?" The article states, China wants to grow, grow, grow. Environmental protection over there is deemed as a barrier. The smog is the flip side of China's rapid rise to a global economic power. Each day new factories are opening that consume more energy. Every week in China someone opens a new coal plant. Gong Shengli:"North China experienced hazy weather, while south China suffers from acidic pollutants. It may cause trees leaves to wither away. Guangdong suffers from the most severe acid rain. The long-term effect of acid rain would make it an unsuitable living place. The resulted environmental damage may lead to disasters that could not be restored even in 100 years." Gong Shengli adds that the damage caused by the Chinese Communist Party(CCP) rule is not limited to the natural environment. China's social and cultural environment was not immune, too. CCP Vice Premier Li Keqiang attended a meeting on Jan.15. He claimed to take actions on air pollution control. Dai Qing (Political & social observers): "Such as Beijing's water shortage. Can you shut down 20 golf courses to plant trees on that land? In reality, no one dares to offend those wealthy and privileged. I think if a premier has no such authority to do it, how can you govern the country?!" The latest issue of China Economic Weekly reported that less than 50% of domestic drinking water meets the standard. A former expert at Chinese Center for Disease Control & Prevention, with over 30 years water treatment experience, said that China's fresh water has become more scarce. Water shortage and groundwater over-exploitation affects the north. Water pollution has resulted in excessive nitrates in waters. In the south, lakes and rivers are enclosed to be used as aquaculture farms. It's common that the fodder contains excess levels of nitrogen and phosphorus. Dai Qing:"It's impossible to develop further, it's unsustainable, when China's coal reserves are exhausted and all trees cut down. In the north are water shortages, while in the south is water pollution. There's no way to sustain the growth, which has lost conditions to be the low-cost labor factories in the world. The country's natural resources have all been destroyed. I hold this view and have called for it for 20 years, but no one would listen to it ..." When hazy weather in China's central and eastern areas began to disperse, Shanghai's air quality index (AQI) suddenly soared on Jan. 16. The official data showed that on 11 a.m., the AQI level has reached 216, severely polluted. The PM2.5 level exceeded 248 micrograms per cubic meter. Zhang Junfeng, China's civil water expert, comments. Officials in China have only very superficial understanding of environmental damage and consequences. They are just wrestling with nature. 《神韵》2011世界巡演新亮点 http://www.ShenYunPerformingArts.org/

Choke Point: Confronting Energy Demand and Water Scarcity in China
China's soaring economy, fueled by an unyielding appetite for coal, is threatened by the country's steadily diminishing freshwater reserves. Even as China has launched enormous new programs of solar, wind, hydro, and nuclear power development, which tend to use much less water and generate much less carbon, energy demand will skyrocket and will primarily rely on supplies of coal, the source of 70 percent of the nation's energy. These are the conclusions from a comprehensive reporting project that was presented at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars on May 6, 2011. The Choke Point: China series, a joint project by the China Environment Forum and Michigan-based Circle of Blue, reveals never-before-reported narrative and facts about the increasingly fierce competition between energy and water that threatens to upend China's progress. At the event hosted by the China Environment Forum (CEF), Keith Schneider, Circle of Blue's senior editor, Jeremy Schreifels of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and Jeff Erikson, senior vice president of SustainAbility, discussed the domestic and global implications of China's rocketing coal-based energy demand, steadily diminishing freshwater supplies and the inexorable bond between the two. Next to agriculture, China's coal mining, processing, combustion, and coal-to-chemicals industries consume more water than any other industrial, municipal, or commercial sector. Currently, more than 70 percent of the nation's energy is generated from coal. By 2020, at least 500 gigawatts of new generating capacity, according to Chinese estimates, will be produced by coal. This coal boom is forcing China into a choke point; one where limited and polluted water supplies could constrain energy development and stymie economic growth.

Heavy Ion Fusion
Google Tech Talk November 11th, 2010 Presented by Dr. Charles Helsley. Abstract: The limited supply and worldwide environmental effects of carbon-based fuels demand that a different source of energy be identified and tapped. This analysis applies to synthetic bio fuels as well as fossil fuels. The obvious candidates to supplant carbon-based fuels are solar conversion, wind generation, hydraulic generation, geothermal extraction, fission, and fusion. When scaled to the size necessary to satisfy the energy demands of the world, all except fusion have severe unmitigated environmental impacts, induce geopolitical instability, or exhibit very limited availability, reliability, and sustainability. Most technologies suffer from more than one of these drawbacks. The fusion of Deuterium and Tritium ("DT") to form Helium and a neutron is a well-known reaction that yields prodigious amounts of energy. Though sufficient fuel is available in seawater to sustain the global energy demand for millennia, we still need an engine capable of running the reaction. As of 2009, the search for such an engine has been going on for 6 decades and common wisdom says it is still 5 decades away. The problem is that the search has been concentrated on the 1 GW regime (the size of a normal large power plant). HIF is that engine now. What is not generally known is that a safe practical way to harness the isotope's of Hydrogen reaction was developed in the 1970's but abandoned because it was only economically viable at a very large scale. The process is known as High Energy Heavy Ion Fusion. Such a fusion power plant would produce about 100 GW of power rather than the 1 GW desired by the power industry. Three facilities would meet the total needs of California, allowing fission and fossil fuel generation to be cut back significantly Heavy Ion Fusion techology is more "ready to go" now than rocket technology was in 1961 when President Kennedy set the goal to go to the moon and back within the decade. The controlled ignition of DT provides a virtually unlimited source of energy. Fusion power can be on line in less than a decade. The energy produced by a single system is equivalent to a super giant oil field and will take about the same amount of time to come on line producing heat, electricity, hydrogen for synthetic fuel and water with a minimal carbon footprint. The life of HIF is thousands of years, while a giant oil field's life is only a few decades. Speaker Bio: Charles Helsley is a retired researcher at the University of Hawaii. He has lived in Hawaii for 32 years, was formerly the Director of the Hawaii Institute of Geophysics and was the Director of the University of Hawaii Sea Grant College Program at the time of his retirement. He is an expert in energy matters, especially in oil and gas resources and is knowledgeable about the effects that the of burning carbon-based fuels has on the earths ocean and atmosphere. He has been involved in many fields of research, from paleomagnetism, to seismology, to marine geology and more recently in free electron laser research and in open ocean aquaculture research under the banner of the Hawaii Offshore Aquaculture Research Program (HOARP) of which he was the principal investigator. He has published more than 100 papers in scientific journals during his career and still publishes papers every few years.

In his lecture, he will speak about his project “Domesticated Grounds: Design and Domesticity Within Animal Farming Systems,” for which he won the 2014 Wheelwright Prize from Harvard GSD. Based on travel to remote rural areas in eight countries on four continents, “Domesticated Grounds” explores design and domesticity surrounding animal-farming operations. His trip of more than 8,500 miles over dusty and muddy roads has raised questions regarding our cultural and architectural heritage, infrastructural and territorial policies, landscape design, technological advancements, and gender and social issues associated with animal production. The goal of the investigation, through visits and interviews with some two hundred families, university technicians, scientists, local governments, and policy makers, is to demystify the current plight of various farming communities and seek opportunities for designers to take action in one of the most asymmetrical economic sectors.

Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago. Learning by listening is a great way to: - increases imagination and understanding - improves your listening skills - improves your own spoken accent - learn while on the move - reduce eye strain Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone.

The Chinese government has placed emphasis through funding, reform, and societal status on science and technology as a fundamental part of the socio-economic development of the country as well as for national prestige. China has made rapid advances in areas such as education, infrastructure, high-tech manufacturing, academic publishing, patents, and commercial applications and is now in some areas and by some measures a world leader. China is now increasingly targeting indigenous innovation and aims to reform remaining weaknesses.
