A very educational and intriguing photography project by Valentino Bellini designed to address our lack of awareness about the devastating impact of e-waste. 
"Bit rot is a colloquial term used in the computerized information systems environment to indicate the gradually decaying of data stored on storage medias or software over the duration of time. In this case, the concept is transposed from a virtual reality, made of bit and software, to a material one, made of real people, things and places. This reality is the research subject of the BITROT Project. Through photographic documentation, the project...

The biggest per-capita tallies were in countries known for environmental consciousness, such as Norway and Denmark, with Britain fifth and US ninth on the UN list

In a joint venture with SunPower, Apple is building two new 20 megawatt solar farms. Construction has already begun and 2 MW of solar capacity are already sending power to the grid. "The technology combines single-axis tracking technology with rows of parabolic mirrors, reflecting light onto high efficiency SunPower Maxeon cells, which are the world's most efficient commercially available mass-produced solar cells. Completion of the projects is e...

Invasion from plastic planet: kill the K-Cup (funny but not so funny video) http://sco.lt/...
"In 2014 the use of the K-Cup reached unparalleled levels. Output became so high that there was enough discarded K-Cups to circle the earth 10.5 times. The numbers continued to grow until the day of the invasion ... Know your facts: 1. In 2013, Green Mountain Coffee produced enough coffee pods to wrap around the equator 10.5 times. 2. The new Keurig 2.0 does not offer reusable filters and the existing “my K-cup” filter does not fit on the machine...

Important to get indigenous voices into the mix.

Forests are the lungs of the earth and our greatest ally in fighting climate change. They absorb carbon and turn atmospheric CO2, water and sunlight into wood while producing the oxygen we breathe. But instead of returning the favor, we cut them down. It’s estimated that roughly 15% of global annual greenhouse gas emissions today are the result of deforestation and forest degradation. That’s comparable to the total annual CO2 emissions of China, or the emissions of the entire global transportation sector — all the world’s planes, ships, trucks, and automobiles combined.

Protecting forests and restoring those that have been degraded are among the easiest options we have for slowing climate change. It doesn’t require any new technological breakthrough — it simply requires each of us to join in. We all impact climate change, but now we can each be part of a broader solution.

What if we thought of attention as something similar: a collective resource, on which everything else depends? And that, when commercial interests exploit our attention on an industrial scale, what’s happening is essentially a transfer of wealth from public to private, no less than if they dumped toxic chemicals in a reservoir?

The direct link between light and our body's natural rhythms. Click the headline to read the story.
For more than 3 billion years, the cyclical light of sun, moon, and stars governed life on Earth. Then along came electric light. Our bodies and brains may not have been ready.

An important step towards greening our understanding of media is to look more closely at the physical infrastructure of our digital world.
