[Weekend Watch List] O plimbare printre fapte bune

[Weekend Watch List] O plimbare printre fapte bune

 Azi facem o plimbare într-un loc liniștit, unde nu există comentarii ostile, anxietăți sau dezbateri despre rochia premierului. Nu există nici întrebări despre democrație, Brexit, Trump sau legile justiției. Vă propunem o listă cu video-uri despre păduri, copaci, natura si modul in care oamenii se straduiesc sa o ajute sa supravietuiască. Locul de care vorbeam, de fapt, este acela al optimismului. Un spatiu in care se cauta solutii pentru a lupta cu poluarea si chiar se gasesc. Despre bacterii care se hranesc cu plastic, ferme care folosesc rate in loc de pesticide, ferme pe acoperisuri, păduri noi. Despre regenerarea planetei, dar si a perspectivei prin care privim lumea. 


Forest Man

50 Years Ago, This Was a Wasteland. He Changed Everything | Short Film Showcase

 Almost 50 years ago, fried chicken tycoon David Bamberger used his fortune to purchase 5,500 acres of overgrazed land in the Texas Hill Country.

Today, the land has been restored to its original habitat and boasts enormous biodiversity. Bamberger's model of land stewardship is now being replicated across the region and he is considered to be a visionary in land management and water conservation.

Vertical Farming

There's a lot of science that goes on behind this agricultural trend. As humans learned to farm, we arranged plants outside in horizontal fields, and invented irrigation and fertilizer to grow bumper crops. But with modern technology and farmers’ cleverness, we can now stack those fields vertically, just as we stacked housing to make apartment buildings. Moving plants indoors has many benefits: Plants are not at the mercy of weather, less wilderness is cleared for farmland, and it’s easier to control the runoff of fertilizer and pesticides. But the choice of lighting can make or break the cost of a vertical farm and affect how long it might take for urban agriculture to blossom.
