Water Resources
005 - Water Resources In this video Paul Andersen explains how water is unequally distributed around the globe through the hydrologic cycles. Seawater is everywhere but is not useful without costly desalination. Freshwater is divided between surface water and groundwater but must me stored and moved for domestic, industrial, and agricultural uses. Subsidized low cost water has created a problem with water conservation but economic changes could help solve the problem. Do you speak another language?

8 Testosterone-Lowering Foods That Are Killing Your Manhood
Your favorite “health” foods might actually be biologically castrating you. And if this is the case, you should turn back now. Stop consuming these foods! Right the ship as soon as possible, or risk sailing straight into the estrogenic glacier of low testosterone misery. Are you consuming any of these foods? I guarantee you, these will surprise you... “Health” Foods That Lower Testosterone Flax Seeds Protein Mint Licorice Vegetable Oils Soy Wine Nuts Flax Seeds Lower Testosterone Flax seeds are terrible for you. Stop eating them. Why? Because they’re extremely rich in lignans. Lignans are highly estrogenic. They also have evidence of reducing testosterone and DHT activity, which is not surprising. In one study, researchers actually used lignans to drive estrogen higher and to purposefully lower testosterone levels - and they showed how brutally effective it really is, by lowering testosterone levels by 70% and free testosterone levels by 89%!! Protein Intake Is Inversely Correlated With Lower Testosterone In studying the manipulation of macronutrients (protein, carbs, and fats) in relation to androgen levels, researchers have found some disturbing - yet logical - correlations, the most important being the inverse correlation between protein consumption and serum testosterone levels. The higher percentage of protein a subject consumed as part of his daily caloric intake, the lower his testosterone levels were. Mint Lowers Testosterone In Men This one always comes as a major shock to people: mint, specifically spearmint and peppermint (the two most common types) have been found to completely obliterate testosterone levels, even in rather normal dosages. One study found that in groups of rats, the subjects that had consumed: 20g/L peppermint tea decreased testosterone by 23% 20g/L spearmint tea decreased testosterone by 51% Massive decreases.

Human impacts on Biodiversity | Biology for All | FuseSchool
Biodiversity is the variety of life. There are thought to be 8.7 million species on planet Earth. And, as we saw in this video, biodiversity is of utmost importance to humans. The loss of one key species can have a detrimental impact on many levels; from other species of animals to plants to the physical environment, as shown by wolves. Human activities are reducing biodiversity. Our future depends upon maintaining a good level of biodiversity, and so we need to start taking measures to try and stop the reduction. In this video we are going to look at how humans are negatively impacting biodiversity. As the world population has grown from 1.5 billion in 1900 to nearly 7.5 billion people today, unsurprisingly the land use has changed. Habitats have been destroyed in favour of agriculture, forestry, fishing, urbanisation and manufacturing. Unsurprisingly, habitat loss has greatly reduced the species richness. Habitat fragmentation has also meant that populations have been split into smaller subunits, which then when faced with challenging circumstances have not been able to adapt and survive. After habitat loss, overharvesting has had a huge effect on biodiversity. Humans historically exploit plant and animal species for short-term profit. If a resource is profitable, we develop more efficient methods of harvesting it, inevitably depleting the resource. As is currently happening with fishing and logging. The exploited species then needs protection. The difficulty is that the demand then outstrips the supply, and so the resource value rises. This increases the incentive to extract the resource and leads to the final collapse of the population. As happened with whales, elephants, spotted cats, cod, tuna and many more species. Human activities are polluting the air and water. Toxic discharge into the water from industrial processes unsurprisingly has a negative effect on the local aquatic species by killing, weakening or affecting their ability to reproduce. Phosphorous and nitrogen in fertilisers run-off agricultural fields and pass into rivers. These surplus nutrients cause algae to bloom, which then starves other aquatic species of oxygen and light, causing them to die. Acid rain is one consequence of humans polluting the air. This causes lakes and water bodies to become more acidic, killing off fish, molluscs, amphibians and many other species. Huge impact humans have had on planet Earth is the introduction of alien species to habitats. In fact, it is estimated that on any given day there are 3000 species in transit aboard ocean-going vessels! Alien species can cause problems in a number of ways… pause the video and have a look. Throughout the earth’s history there have been periods of rapid climate change, that have led to mass extinction events. We are currently in a period of fluctuating climate, but nearly all scientists agree that human activities, like burning fossil fuels, are speeding up global warming. We don’t know how much climate change is going to affect biodiversity in future, but it’s predicted to be huge. Loss of sea ice and ocean acidification are already causing huge reductions in biodiversity. Climate change alters temperature and weather patterns, with changing patterns of rainfall and drought expected to have significant impacts on biodiversity. So there we have a selection of human-related impacts on biodiversity. There are much more, which a quick search on the internet will bring up.

Go to GoingGreenwithMichele.com Environmentalism is the act of helping to preserve, restore, or improve one’s natural environment by decreasing pollution, conserve natural resources, do away with things that affect the world negatively. Our is how to save the earth. Some ways are addressing problems such as global warming, the depletion of the ozone layer, deforestation, climate change, the greenhouse effect ad many more issues. The Industrial Revolution was an amazing time in history for the United States and probably the entire world as well, but it came with a cost that most likely wont effect us directly but will definitely affect our grand kids and their kids. That cost can be called climate change, global warming or just the eventual demise of the planet Earth. The biggest advancement that came out of the Industrial Revolution is the steam powered engine. That paved an even greater economic outlook for mankind. There was more travel, more trade, more jobs, more goods were produce but and at the same time we began burning too many fossil fuels and tore down too many trees. The most used and least expensive way to generate the power for the steam engines was coal. Coal is essentially carbon and carbon is a natural greenhouse gas but ever since the Industrial Revolution there has been way too much carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. We “humans” are now considered a non natural influence to the control of climate and deforestation is another phenomenon caused by humans and that is the burning of forests so there can be more land and building material to use. As an environmentalist that thinks realistically, I want to inform you that humans are not the only cause of climate change or global warming. The climate can be influenced by natural activity like: volcanic eruptions, changing solar activity, orbital variations, climate oscillations, and natural intake and emission of carbon(CO2) by animal and plant respiration, volcanic activity, and ocean-atmosphere exchange.

A recipe for cutting food waste | Peter Lehner | TEDxManhattan
According to a report by the Natural Resources Defense Council, Americans are tossing up to 40 percent of the food supply each year, along with all the resources used to produce food that never gets eaten. Food waste occurs at home, on the farm, and in supermarkets. In this TED Talk, NRDC's executive director Peter Lehner explores the low-tech, tried-and-true solutions proven to reduce food waste and save money for consumers and businesses alike. It's essential that we start putting more of these solutions into action. Find out what we can do to get the most out of our food system at: http://www.nrdc.org/food http://www.nrdc.org/food/wasted-food.asp http://switchboard.nrdc.org/blogs/dgunders/ Peter Lehner is the Executive Director of NRDC and NRDC Action Fund. NRDC, one the nation's leading environmental advocacy organizations with over 1.3 million members and activists and 430 staff in seven offices, works to protect people's health and families, communities, jobs, and wild spaces by accelerating clean and efficient energy, transportation and protecting our oceans, waters and homes from pollution. He is responsible for guiding NRDC's policy positions, advocacy strategies, communications plans, development and administration, and managing NRDC's seven offices and for leading the Action Fund's political activities. Since Peter's return to NRDC in 2006, NRDC has opened new offices in Beijing and Chicago, started the Center for Market Innovation, and expanded both its policy and communications capacity. Previously, Peter served as chief of the Environmental Protection Bureau of the New York State Attorney General's office for eight years. He supervised all environmental litigation by the state, prosecuting a wide variety of polluters and developing innovative multi-state strategies targeting global warming, acid rain, and smog causing emissions. Peter previously served at NRDC as a senior attorney in charge of the water program. Before that, he created and led the environmental prosecution unit for New York City. Peter holds an AB in philosophy and mathematics from Harvard College and is a graduate of Columbia University Law School, where he continues to teach environmental law. He also has extensive experience in sustainable farming and green business. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event.

Flashback: “In the coming months, my administration will develop a proposal to merge, consolidate, and reorganize the federal government in a way that best serves the goal of a more competitive America.” -President Obama, 2011 Fast Forward: The Obama administration is less efficient than ever. Two separate Government Accountability Office (GAO) reports released in 2015 highlight problems created by the federal government’s heavy-handed regulatory climate. The first report titled, "Indian Energy Development: Poor Management by BIA Has Hindered Energy Development on Indian Lands," focuses on the vast inadequacies of the federal government in regards to Native American energy development. The second report, “BLM Has Limited Assurance That Wind and Solar Projects Are Adequately Bonded” discusses the Bureau of Land Management (BLM)’s chronic mismanagement of its bonding program for renewable energy projects.

Downer Group - Paving the Way by SwitchVideo.com
Produced by www.switchvideo.com Imagine reducing our carbon footprint, decreasing our reliance on natural resources and preventing high grade plastics from entering our landfills all at the same time. Now imagine saving money while doing so. Sounds incredible doesn't it? That's what we thought 20 years ago when we relied on 100% virgin materials to produce asphalt. But we can see the value in sustainability. And through an exclusive partnership with Close the Loop, we now gather printer cartridge toner and combine that with waste oil to minimize our reliance on natural resources. Then we combine that with recycled asphalt, reducing our carbon footprint by up to 23%. And in the near future, we'll use waste paint, discarded PVC and used tyres to make our roads even more environmentally friendly. Did we mention it cost less and performs BETTER than utilising virgin materials? Let's pave the way to sustainability. Email [email protected] to learn more.

Technology is evolving and so are we. But evolution has a massive drawback. While the internet speed gets faster, our growth gets slower. “The youth is the future”, it’s said. The youth that bothers more about their likes increasing and less about the natural resources decreasing, prove to be a threat for the very future that we’ve dreamt of. Our definition of an ideal future has always been the highest level of technology, self-driven cars, skyscrapers and a better lifestyle. But our only question is, are you ready to give up your happiness and your mental sanity for materialistic things? Instead of evolving the type of vehicle you drive, it’s time to evolve your thought process. Your thoughts are captured by bias and prejudice. It’s time to set them free, it’s time to evolve and this time, in the right sense. Introducing to you, the theme for Insight’18- EVOLVE.

TEKO Synergy - Platform housing areas
2009 Tekostudents : Karin Jacobsen Nanna Dahl Maike Heldt - Camilla Lademann Brenda Ciraiz- Kamilla Louise Jørgensen Let the earth breath! Growing population, global warming, decreasing natural resources and ego-cultures are only some of the reasons why we find it important to create new ways of living first of all in the favor of agriculture. Imagine platform housing areas, where underneath we let nature reclaim what culture once took - build vertical instead of horizontal. And by lifting our houses and living areas from the ground - we will allow the sun to nourish the earth once again! At the same time, we find it necessary to recreate the community feeling and responsibility for each other within communities as we once had it in families and still have it in some of our cultures. Our main idea however is that platform housing areas move simultaneously, making it possible for the earth beneath to receive all the sun needed. Common procedures as washing, cooking is done in communities in order to save both water and consumption in general. Each platform has a water cleansing system on top, through which both communities and the earth underneath are provided with water. We will have a system of pipes which transports waste, such as waste from cooking and human waste from the platform down to the nature area. The waste is recycled in big cleansing systems, and partly given out into the ground, in amounts needed for nature to grow. This platform scenario must not necessary be executed all over the world; however it is crucial in some areas due to growing overpopulation and therefore growing lack of green areas. Let the earth breath!!

Nature and Life - Episode 196 (Endangered Wildlife of Sundarbans)
The Sundarbans is the largest unique mangrove forest in the world. Sixty percent of this forest is situated in Bangladesh. The ecosystem of the Sundarbans is fulfilled with numerous rivers and canals spread like tree branches. The land of the Sundarbans is always wet due to regular tide. So the Sundarbans has been a unique ecosystem comprised of diversified plants and animals, enriched with wildlife resources. For this reason, the Sundarbans is a world heritage now. But due to population growth, excessive collection of the natural resources and climate change etc., the ecosystem of Sundarbans is changing day by day. So, numerous animals of this area are decreasing rapidly due to insufficiency of habitats and food. Some species are on the way of extinction. Among these endangered animals, the Bengal Tiger, Fishing Cat, Barking Deer, Otter, King Cobra, Monitor Lizard, Porcupine, estuarine Crocodile, River Terrapin, Ganges River Dolphin, Masked Finfoot, Lesser Adjutant and other birds are distinctive. The mammals of Sundarbans are in the most critical condition. Because the mammals need a wide spread habitat for sustaining, which is reducing day by day due to excessive collection of the natural resources. Among these endangered mammals, the world famous Bengal Tiger is special. Not only the habitat degradation, but also due to illegal hunting they are in critical condition today. The Bengal Tigers remaining in few numbers in Sundarbans are also facing variety of problems. The Sundarbans was the safest place for them one time. The otters are unique residents of Sundarbans. They are seen more in Sundarbans of our country. They also have been isolated due to water pollution. The number of Fishing Cat is also decreasing due to insufficiency of food. Though there are two species of Deer found in Sundarbans, the status of the Barking Deer is not good at all. The existence of the aquatic mammals is under threat due to various reasons related to climate change. The most familiar species in Bangladesh, Ganges River Dolphin is not in good condition also. They are not seen in the rivers of Sundarbans like before due to be caught into the fishing nets and death by accidents. The condition of reptiles in Sundarbans is also critical. Once upon a time Estuarine Crocodile, Freshwater Crocodile and Gavial were seen in the rivers of Sundarbans. The Freshwater Crocodile and the Gavial have been extinct from the Sundarbans. The estuarine Crocodile is surviving in endangered condition. Different species of snake are related closely with the ecosystem of Sundarbans. Some of them are also endangered now. King Cobra, Monocellate Cobra, python are significant among them. Sea snakes are also killed by entangled into fishing nets. So, their number is also reducing. The turtles are not in good condition also. In our country, the River Terrapins live only in the rivers of Sundarbans. They are also on the way of extinction due to spoiling of the river ecosystem. For various reasons, the number of endangered birds in Sundarbans is increasing. The Masked Finfoot is found only in the Sundarbans in this country. This duck-like bird is very beautiful to look at. The aquatic bird of Sundarbans, Lesser Adjutant is also endangered. Despite it was seen everywhere in this country, now found separately. Though Sundarbans is counted as the safe place for the kingfishers, the Ruddy Kingfisher is decreasing. These red colored birds normally prefer hidings. Though numerous species of aquatic birds were found once due to the presence of mud abundantly in the forests, their number has also been decreased. White-bellied Sea Eagle and Bengal Vulture are also endangered species of Sundarbans. They are not seen like before. The amphibian fauna of Sundarbans is not in good condition also. The Green Frog is a significant species here. The number of this species is also decreasing for water pollution. These endangered species were found abundantly in the Sundarbans once, which are the inseparable part of the forest ecosystem. But due to food scarcity, destruction of habitats and breeding grounds, the number of threatened species is increasing day by day. Due to the pressure of climate change and increasing human population these animals have been hopeless, and are counting the time to be extinct from the Earth. Some selfish people are involved in illegal wildlife trade. Moreover there is a lack of consciousness among general people about the wildlife. Continuing such these detrimental activities, the animals still existing in the Sundarbans will be lost in near future. If these species go extinct, other animals depending on them will be harmed also. So the overall ecosystem of the Sundarbans will be imbalanced, so as the humans of this area. So the animals should be protected from being extinct by ensuring sufficient food supply and natural habitats. Then our World Heritage, the Sundarbans will sustain.

Nature and Life - Episode 183 (Tanguar Haor)
Bangladesh is the largest delta of the world. Geographical position and seasonal diversity have made this country unique. Bangladesh is one of the most waterlogged countries of the world. The Meghalaya is in the north-eastern side of this country. The freshwater flow from there has created a unique arrangement of wetland. Tanguar Haor is an inseparable part of that arrangement. Tanguar Haor is famous throughout the world as a reservoir of aquatic biodiversity. Due to availability of water flow throughout the year, it has richer biodiversity compared to other Haors. This flow of water occurs through rivers and canals. The flow of water increases in monsoon. The Haor becomes so full of water that it looks almost like a sea. With multitude of Hijal and Karach, the Haor turns into a swamp forest; as if those trees are floating over water. But the water dries up in winter. Sediments, coming from upstream, fertilize the soil of Haor. As a result, plenty of aquatic plants grow in Haor. Some of these aquatic plants are floating and some are submerged. Among aquatic plants Water lily, Lotus, Chandmala, Water chestnut are remarkable. Lotuses, with large leaves, look beautiful on the Haor water. Water Chestnut and Chandmala create a green layer on water. Colorful flower bloom on them. These aquatic plants decompose with seasonal shift and make soil fertile. Hijal, Karach and Barun are mentionable trees of Haor. These trees usually grow on the bank of wetlands. Various colorful Butterflies, Grasshoppers and insects roam on these trees. These aquatic plants provide numerous organisms with food and shelter. Various species of fishes are available in the Haor. Such as: Climbing Perch, Air, Kuria labeo, Pabda catfish etc. Along with these, various invertebrates like: Shrimp, Snail, Oyster etc. are also available that are good source of food for birds. As a result, along with resident birds, numerous migratory birds come to this Haor in winter. The whole area becomes sonorous with the calls of those birds. These birds are a vital part of the Haor ecosystem. The population of Cormorant, Purple Swamphen and various species of Ducks & Egrets is richer in here compared to other places. Beautiful Purple Swamphens forage for feeding in flock on aquatic plants. Their purple color beautifies the Haor. Cormorants can be seen warming themselves in the sunshine. Most of the time they dive to forage for feeding. Grebes can also be seen foraging for feeding in here. They are expert fish hunter. Various species of Egrets are common in here. Great Egret, Cattle Egret, Grey Heron, Indian Pond Heron are remarkable among them. They sharply observe their prey and hunt if they get chance. Various species of Ducks are one of the inhabitants of Tanguar Haor. Common coot duck, Pochard duck, Garganey, Ruddy shelduck, are mentionable among them. They usually roam in large flocks. They can also be seen roaming alone or as couple. Most of the time they feed on aquatic plants, fishes, Snails etc. in flock. They also roost in here. Some of their flocks may contain thousands of Ducks. Flock of Lesser Whistling duck can be seen roaming in Haor. They roam together with other birds. If terrified, they also fly away with other birds. Reed lands of Tanguar Haor is a safe home to wildlife. Due to the presence of large number of insects, Grassbird, Ruddy-breasted Crake, Warbler, Bee eater etc. birds roam in reed lands. They sometimes roam outside reed lands for feeding. Critically endangered Pallas's fish eagle can still be seen in Tanguar Haor. Large trees of the wetland are the perfect roosting place for them. Various species of amphibians and reptiles can also be seen in this vast Haor. Such combination of flora and fauna has made Tanguar Haor a unique wetland. Moreover, it’s a huge repository of fishes. For such unique features, it has been declared as Ramsar site. Human life is closely related to this enormous ecosystem. Tanguar Haor has merged with the life and tradition of local people. But human habitation has been increasing around the Haor since the middle of last century. Unplanned harvesting of fishes, trees and aquatic plants are increasing gradually. Thus, population of birds and wildlife is decreasing alarmingly due to the disturbance in the natural balance of the ecosystem. Resident and migratory birds are threatened due to illegal hunting. Resident fishes are decreasing due to continuous use of Gill net, and migratory birds are being entrapped. This is impacting the whole ecosystem. So, we all have to be cautious to conserve the huge natural resources of Tanguar Haor. Befitting initiatives need to be taken to conserve the biodiversity of this internationally important place. Only then we’ll get more financial and ecological benefits from this wetland.

Nature and Life - Episode 289 (Conservation of Haor Biodiversity)
Bangladesh is well known to the world as a land of wetlands. The Haors occupy a vast area of our total wetlands. Located in the North-eastern Bangladesh, the Haors are a reservoir of freshwater with unique features. This area consists of many big and small haors, like Tanguar, Pashuar, Hail, Hakaluki haors and so on. With exceptional natural beauty, these Haors are also rich with biodiversity. A large portion of the haor’s flora is consist of aquatic plants. Usually, Haor has three types of aquatic plants. They are free floating, attached floating and submerged plants. Among the trees of Haor Mango Pine, Indian Beech and the Sacred Garlic Pear are prominent. These aquatic plants are home to many animals. Various fresh-water fishes swim around in this maze of aquatic plants. In winter, as the water level falls, people of the Haor area fish them out in groups. These fish are an important economic resource to us. Apart from the fish, invertebrates like snails, clams and other insects are found here. Bird is an important member of the haor biodiversity. Most common are Purple Swamphen, Heron and Cormorant. With read beak and purple body, Purple Swamphens are seen all over the Haors. Along with them, the Black-winged Stilt roam in flocks. They are an inseparable part of the haor ecosystem. The migratory waterbirds come in winter. When winter is over, they return to their breeding grounds again. Apart from the birds, there are many amphibians, reptiles and mammals in the vast haor. So, Haors are of great environmental significance. Again, the decaying aquatic plants make the haor land fertile. Golden harvests grow in that fertile soil. So, Haor is vital for our economy as well. And, the Haor economy depends on a balanced ecosystem. But from the middle of the 20th Century the Humans started to build habitation around the Haors. Due to excessive demand, they start to extract excessive amount of aquatic natural resources. To meet the demand of protein, excessive fishing almost endangered the species of indigenous fish. Indigenous and migratory birds become endangered due to hunting with poison trap and other traps. Along with them other animals are also decreasing, creating imbalance in Haor ecosystem, which is having adverse effect on the overall environment. The Hakaluki Haor has been declared an Ecologically Critical Area for such environmental degradation. Many projects have been taken to conserve the Haor biodiversity. The Co-Management System is a prominent one among those. It has been implemented in many Haors including the Tanguar Haor. In the Co-Management System, the local people play an active role in the natural resource extraction, management and conservation of the biodiversity. The organized body dedicated to this effort, made of people from various classes and occupations, regularly organize training workshops for conservation of natural resources. Through the trainings the users of natural resources are made aware of the importance and contribution of the biodiversity, wetlands and aquatic resources, which has had a great impact in the conservation of haor biodiversity. But this initiative should gradually be implemented in all the haors. For transforming the traditional haor leasing system, we now have greater produce of indigenous fish and have safe roaming ground for wildlife. There are many other ongoing programs to conserve the Haor biodiversity. Works are going on to determine the probable impact of the infrastructures built in haor areas and their possible solution. Though these steps are contributory, for overall conservation they are still not enough. We have to be more enthusiastic to conserve the haor biodiversity. We need to guarantee conservation of all haors of our country. So, we have to improve the coordination between the people and government organizations. The local people have to be aware of the impact of their activities on the haor ecosystem. The people have to develop interest in conservation efforts through hands on training. Apart from these, the government and non-governmental organizations have to take on various activities to build environmental awareness among people. Also timely research is a must for biodiversity conservation. Overall, through sustainable management we have to take necessary steps to conserve the biodiversity of Haor. Only then the Biodiversity of Haor will be conserved and the lives of Haor people will thrive.

Oil drilling in Africa could lead to 'The Resource Curse'
New technologies mean 12 nations in eastern and western Africa, including Kenya, Ethiopia and Ghana, will become major oil exporters in next decade. These new oil and gas exports could pour $3 trillion into economies that had a combined GDP in 2011 of only $181 billion. RT's Sam Sacks speaks with Richard America, an adjunct professor at Georgetown University, and Nii Akuetteh, the founder of Democracy and Conflict Research Institute, about ways African countries can take advantage of their new-found wealth without falling victim to "The Resource Curse" of increased wealth inequality and corruption and decreasing democratic institutions and quality of life.

Global Water Resource Assessments: Models vs. Satellites
School of Geosciences Although we increasingly rely on models and satellites to evaluate global water resources, their reliability is questionable. Unlike past research that compared modeled river discharges with monitored discharges, our work focuses on comparing modeled land water storage (snow, surface water, soil moisture and groundwater) trends to storage trends from Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) satellites. Likened to giant weighing scales in the sky, GRACE satellites have monitored monthly changes in land water storage globally since their launch in 2002. The satellites show that global land water storage, summed over 186 river basins, increased over the past decade, although models show decreasing global water storage. This suggests opposing contributions to global mean sea level, with GRACE indicating a negative contribution to sea level and models indicating a positive contribution. While there is considerable interest in global scale analyses, water management generally occurs at the river basin scale, with models underestimating large decadal (2002–2014) trends in water storage relative to GRACE satellites. Comparing models with GRACE highlights potential areas of future model development, particularly simulated water storage. The inability of models to capture large decadal water storage trends based on GRACE indicates that model projections of climate and human induced water storage changes may be underestimated.

Conserving Planet Earth
A short 1:30 PSA on conserving our planet... The development and magnitude of human enterprise has grown at an unprecedented scale. Due to this, nature is now prone to increasing risks; the environmental conditions that stimulated our growth are declining. Healthy ecosystems, which are natural assets, are vital to our survival, affluence, and health. Increased human strain is decreasing natural assets at a faster rate than can be restored. Humans have pushed various subsystems beyond their limit of secure operating space. In terms of carbon, the Ecological footprint of consumption is far beyond the world capacity. To succeed at conserving our planet, an intrinsic understanding must characterize our strategies: we have only one planet and its natural assets are limited. Thereupon, to establish a resilient solution, we must turn to sustainability and efficiency - in preserving natural assets, production and consumption, resource governance, energy, and food systems. Sustainability and resilience will be achieved much faster if we educate the population on understanding the importance and necessities of our progressively frail earth. We have only one planet, and it’s up to us to conserve it.
