Ecotrippen – Sverige på cykel

Ecotrippen – Sverige på cykel

Posted by on Jan 1, 2018 in Earth, Travel

Detta äventyr har vuxit fram sakteligen i mer än 6 år, men i år är det dags. Mitt intresse för miljö började växa för runt 20 år sedan. Den första riktiga cykeln köpte jag för drygt 8 år sedan och har bland annat cyklat i Skåne. Att filma har alltid varit kul men har hittills […]

Creating a Unified History

Creating a Unified History

Posted by on Mar 7, 2017 in Earth, Ideas, Notes, Tech

There is great interest in our history. If we had all the vast knowledge of past human settlements and prehistory accurately gathered in a single digital map with a scrollable timeline we would have a powerful tool at our disposal. We would achieve greater understanding of our history through insights not possible with scattered information. […]

We have already passed a tipping point

We have already passed a tipping point

Watch disaster unfold as the world passes the first clear tipping point. Ice sheets are collapsing. The world of tomorrow will be very different. Perhaps what is more alarming is that even scientists continue to be surprised at how fast change happens. But will the world even notice when media fails to do its responsibility […]

It’s the inevitable headline, seen on Swedish television January 3rd, 2014. Maybe a world’s first. The World: Extreme weather. 2014 is off to a worrying start. Major floods in France and Britain while record ones in Brazil. Intense heat in Australia. Unseasonably mild weather in Russia and Scandinavia, sending ripple effects through ecosystems depending on […]

Let’s say there was 100 percent sea ice in the Arctic when I was born, right at the end of a summer melting in the late 70s. How much sea ice was there on my birthday this year? Guess. Not even close. Guess again. You know how some things aren’t easily visually perceived because it […]

Earth Year

Earth Year

Posted by on Apr 27, 2012 in Earth

Since 1970 we have celebrated Earth Day. A few years ago, as the ecological crisis approached certainty, we added Earth Hour. But now we need more than hours or days; we need a whole year. In Earth Year we stop. No more obliteration of natural ecosystems, no more urban sprawl and no more superfluous consumption. […]

The destruction of wealth

The destruction of wealth

Posted by on Aug 23, 2010 in Earth

Before society there was nature; much more so than today. There was wealth, and in fact there was as much wealth as there will ever be in the age of man. Today the term wealth has become synonymous with turning natural resources into goods and consuming those goods. The more consumption; the more wealth. However, […]

We can’t wish away climate change

Another great editorial from one of the greatest heroes of our time; Al Gore. There is a saying: ”Those who speak, do not know. Those who know, do not speak.” Well, Al knows. But knowing is precisely why he cannot sit quiet and wait for disaster. He speaks out and does it eloquently. Thus, instead […]

Watch this movie made by Yann Arthus-Bertrand, known for his Earth from Above photos. Views in this movie are equally breathtaking since it is completely shot from the air, but it’s not about the scenery. Have a look! (Running time about 90 minutes). https://youtu.be/jqxENMKaeCU
