While I was away, the Buckeye Lake Dam story stayed

Environmental Economics

If you had a home on the lake and had invested your life savings in the place, this news would have you pulling your hair out (unless you have a hairline like mine, and nature’s already done it for you). From below the dam, it’s about public safety: protecting life and property. And if you’re the government official responsible for the dam, your obligation is to protect life, period.

Why Is It Important to Conserve Biodiversity?

Life has existed on our planet for over. Biodiversity is the variety of life on Earth at all its levels, from genes to ecosystems. It not only encompasses the ecological processes as we can see them, but also holds the key to the evolutionary processes that sustain life and the cultural relationships that nurture the spirit. . Biodiverse ecosystems support life on all levels. Observation of a sea turtle behavior helps to protect them.

New Pollutants on the Rise

Eco Friendly Daily

However, the agents meant to protect life may also carry an environmental cost. Researchers at Texas A&M University have developed an alternative flame retardant that poses less environmental risk from “fire paint” used to protect buildings and other structures. Flame retardants are necessary in the home. Considering the alternative, there is no choice but to include them in the production of household products.

Earth Day Fest 2012 for the Whole Community

Green (Living) Review

Wolf Camp and Wolf College helps protect life of the planet in its original design. As Paul Gilding pointed out we need about one and half Earth right now to sustain us, as we live now, and the demands are growing. This is not logical, this is not possible - infinite growth on a finite planet violates plain math. Will our solutions come from technological advances? Who is in charge of changing the tide around. A small community of Snohomish, WA considers everybody responsible.

Now We’re There: Terraforming Mars

Eco Friendly Daily

At present it is far too cold to support human life. Changing the atmosphere into something suitable for human life is trickier, as the materials needed would have to be transported to the planet from Earth, involving both a huge cost and extreme difficulty. One more plausible way is to introduce organisms, such as plant life, onto the planet. At present it is not known whether a thick atmosphere alone would be enough to protect life from solar radiation.
