Illegal Indonesian palm oil spreads through global supply chains despite global sustainability commitments and "certification"
 
The investigative report launched on Wednesday, titled “No one is safe“ (http://bit.ly/1YdwUJP), showed that the Tesso Nilo National Park in Riau and other protected areas which are home to endangered Sumatran tigers, elephants, and orangutans, are systematically being destroyed to grow palm oil.

More than 80% of the 83,000 hectares national park has been converted to illegal oil palm plantations,  leaving only 18 per cent, or 15,000 hectares of natural forest standing.

"The problem is 3 big lies that dominate our narrative; that humans and nature are separate entities, that we can have unlimited growth on a finite planet, and that meaning in life is found through material acquisition. Until those lies are replaced with true stories, nothing changes." ( I agree with this sad but apt comment by Mr. Randy Williams) via https://www.facebook.com/SustainableMan/

You failed to mention THE MOST IMPORTANT problem. The outright rejection of God and Jesus Christ. END OF STORY. Go cry in your empty soul.

"In this imperfect world, the only imperishable things are ideas." ‪#‎UmbertoEco‬

 Goodbye to the great genius Italian writer, philosopher, and semiotician Umberto Eco (5 Jan. 1932 – 19 Feb. 2016).  Thank you Mr. Eco for every idea that you shared with us in your books. ‪#‎RIP‬

Another great thinker with beard and hat and a truly genius writer whose books helped me learn much about people and life has passed away. First Sir Terry Pratchett and now Professor Umberto Eco...

Why the bloody massacre of self aware, intelligent beings is "beautiful to watch" and a good "tradition" to keep for Faroese people?

Really disgusting. Outright cannibalism would be less so. If this insanity represents their culture, they desperately need a new culture, the poor ignorant savages.

This ignorance and stupidity of humankind that will kill us:

Kids happily eating snacks with palm oil and watching beautiful and unreal digital jungle in cinema, while deforestation for palm oil, for stupid non-sense monster dams, and oil pollution due to oil drilling has been wiping out the real rainforests at an alarming rate.

Science of the Unseen: Digital Art Perspectives

Online Exhibition of the ACM SIGGRAPH Digital Art Community

What goes unseen, unfelt, or unheard? In this online exhibition, the artworks converge with scientific experiment, using digital tools to creatively reinterpret the imperceptible and science of the unseen.

Artworks in Science of the Unseen: Digital Art Perspectives think creatively about questions of scale and how unseen processes animate larger effects. By using digital tools and computational programs, we see with new eyes as we view visual material from the microscopic cell to the cosmic universe. Technology increasingly alters the senses and our experience of the biological, astrological, and geological landscape. From our new ways of seeing, questions emerge such as: how does nano-technology mirror and magnify the art of nature? How does visualizing insect burrows in trees allow us to interpret a larger ecosystem? Or we can ask what still remains unseen: how do organisms form new imperceptible habits in response to technology?
