Seeds: Another terrible impact of big corporations

Monsanto & alike… Son of b**


Gazing at (Virtual) Nature Is Good for Your Psychological Well-Being

“In the 1980s, experimental psychologists Rachel and Stephen Kaplan studied the effects of nature on people. They found that small glimpses of the natural world—“nearby nature”—could have measurable effects on well-being. Even an insignificant or faraway sight, such as a few trees viewed through a window, could still give us a good feeling.”

And yet, many of us live in cities… What a paradox.

Man & nature

Barely exaggerated!


Global warming

For those that still doubt the global warming, I wonder what they have to answer to this video, really!


The day the Earth stood still

The best dialogue from ‘The day the Earth stood still’. Makes you think, doesn’t it?

Professor Barnhardt: There must be alternatives. You must have some technology that could solve our problem.

Klaatu: Your problem is not technology. The problem is you. You lack the will to change.

Professor Barnhardt: Then help us change.

Klaatu: I cannot change your nature. You treat the world as you treat each other.

Professor Barnhardt: But every civilization reaches a crisis point eventually.

Klaatu: Most of them don’t make it.

Professor Barnhardt: Yours did. How?

Klaatu: Our sun was dying. We had to evolve in order to survive.

Professor Barnhardt: So it was only when your world was threated with destruction that you became what you are now.

Klaatu: Yes.

Professor Barnhardt: Well that’s where we are. You say we’re on the brink of destruction and you’re right. But it’s only on the brink that people find the will to change. Only at the precipice do we evolve. This is our moment. Don’t take it from us, we are close to an answer.


Peak all

That video is the best explanation I have seen on why constant growth on a finite planet cannot work, taking the example of oil consumption.

I am curious to see how the economy (and humanity in general) will adapt to the peak all moment which is approaching fast. Interesting times!

There is no tomorrow

Infinite growth on a finite planet is absurd, and yet our politicians constantly talk about economical growth as THE graal. Check out that video for the big picture.
