Dr Tim Flannery - Population, Climate & Australia: A View to 2050
 
01:01:27
http://www.jcipp.curtin.edu.au This seminar was presented by the John Curtin Institute of Public Policy (JCIPP), Curtin University on Thursday 24th November, 2011. The next 50 years will define the environmental health of the Earth into the indefinite future. Developed nations such as Australia need to decrease their greenhouse gas emissions this decade, and large developing economies by 2020-2030, to trigger less than 2 degrees of warming. Global population needs to peak by 2050 at around 8-9 billion to give humanity the best chance of a sustainable future. If these peaks do not eventuate the scene is set for a scenario of the sort Jared Diamond outlined in his book Collapse. What role can Australia play to do its part in achieving a sustainable future? What impact are Australia's current policies having, and how do policies need to change to leverage better outcomes? Key objectives and pathways for both population and climate issues will be outlined, and perspectives gathered from the activities of the Climate Commission will be used to build a case for action. About the Speaker: Dr Tim Flannery is one of Australia's leading thinkers and writers. An internationally acclaimed scientist, explorer and conservationist, he has published more than 130 peer-reviewed scientific papers. His books include the landmark works The Future Eaters and The Weather Makers. In 2007 Tim Flannery co-founded and was appointed Chair of the Copenhagen Climate Council, a coalition of community, business, and political leaders who came together to confront climate change. In 2011 he was appointed Australia's Chief Climate Commissioner.

It's an attempt to break with the story of civilization and to tell another very different story. One about a culture incompatible with nature." - Felix Silvestris Catus anOther Story Of Progress covers various issues, such as environmental destruction, indigenous resistance and insurrection - from a primitivist perspective. It also features primitivist thinkers such as John Zerzan and Layla AbdelRahim, as well as activists Vandana Shiva and Ana Maria Lozano from Justicia y Paz - to mention just some of the people appearing in the film.

The Ecological Human
 
01:03:05
2015 Stanislaw Ulam Memorial Lecture Series September 16, 2015 Traditionally, most ecological research has studied ecosystems as separate from humans. In her second lecture, Dunne shows how humans fit into and impact ecosystems through their myriad interactions with other species. She then explores how the science of ecological networks can help meet the pressing need to understand the roles of humans in ecosystems, particularly in terms of resource use and consumption. With examples from pre-industrial hunter-gatherer and agricultural societies, she will explore potential lessons for modern humans in fostering a more sustainable future.

2014 Distinguished Visitor Lecture Series - The Spatial Information Revolution: An Insider's Guide
 
43:52
Find out more: http://ow.ly/u9RQo QUT's Institute of Future Environments hosts Dr Tim Foresman, a pioneer of special innovation, who provides an insight into the value and significance of the field. Spatial Information (SI) is a rapidly emerging research field and industry devoted to collecting, analysing, modelling and presenting data about the locations and features of all kinds of objects. It sits at the intersection of big data, remote sensor technology, geographic information systems and advanced digital modelling and visualisation software. The applications of SI are diverse and continuously expanding -- from asset mapping and service planning to bushfire management and environmental monitoring. In this lecture, Dr Tim Foresman, a pioneer in the field, will explain the value and significance of SI as an intellectual field, a tool for businesses and other organisations, and a survival aid for humans and the other species. Tim will draw on examples from his own work, including the development of Google Earth. Throughout Tim's career SI has been a key element in various projects, a connecting ingredient making people and organisations smarter and more effective. Tim will also share his perspective on the research, teaching and educational aspects of SI for universities developing a serious SI program. Tim is in Brisbane to launch the Open World Master Class, an initiative of QUT and SIBA (Spatial Industries Business Association). Tim will return to QUT next year to run this executive master class, which will help position QUT as a national and international leader in SI research and education. Dr Tim Foresman is an internationally renowned science, engineering and education leader. He has been a technology leader in the use of scientific visualisation and spatial information systems for community decision support. He served at NASA Headquarters as the national manager for the Digital Earth Initiative under Vice President Al Gore, which led to many developments, including Google Earth and the establishment of the International Society for Digital Earth. Tim served as the United Nations' chief environmental scientist with the United Nations Environment Programme in Nairobi, Kenya. Since leaving the UN he has consulted, taught and conducted workshops worldwide on the challenges of creating a carbon-conscious world, the foundations for sustainability, and using community-based decision support to promote healthy and environmentally sound development.

Unis'tot'en Action Camp - Speaking Tour by Deep Green Resistance
 
01:30:07
The frontline of the struggle for indigenous sovereignty -- against industrial extraction, against corporate pipelines -- is not in Washington D.C. or Victoria, British Columbia. It is not in the offices of Greenpeace or 350.org. To get to one of the many places the where the battle is being waged, you have to travel an hour and a half down a dirt logging road in central British Columbia. Surrounded by forests of Black Spruce and Lodge Pole Pine on the bank of the Morice River, at the edge of the Wet'suwet'en First Nation territory, is the Unis'tot'en Action Camp. Here, the Wet'suwet'en are holding their ground, defending their traditional lands from a set of 9 oil & gas pipelines the Canadian government (and a host of multinational corporations, collectively worth hundreds of billions of dollars) want to build. Earlier this month, for the third year in a row, they invited their allies and supporters to take part in the week-long Action Camp, which included workshops, discussions, trainings, mutual aid, and relationship building. Over the last several weeks, organizers from DGR have been traveling up the Pacific Northwest on our way to the Unis'tot'en Action Camp. Along the way, we stopped in cities to gather donations, funds, and messages of support and solidarity for the Wet'suwet'en. This is the video of our presentation in occupied Duwamish territories (Seattle, Washington). Help us caption & translate this video! http://amara.org/v/DWOX/

STEMinar Series: "Behind Easter Island's Moai Statues" Dale F. Simpson, Jr.
 
46:41
http://www.cod.edu/STEMINAR Many publications document Easter Island's famous ahu (platform), moai (statue), pukao (topknot), and almost millennium–long culture. Yet, little investigation has focused on basalt resources, artifacts, and their geochemistry. As part of a collaborative investigation between the Rapa Nui Geochemical Project, the Elemental Analysis Facility at The Field Museum of Natural History, and the Easter Island Statue Project, we conducted comprehensive fieldwork, material culture and archaeometric analyses focused on Easter Island's archaeological basalt industries. Our results highlight how the prehistoric Rapanui were sophisticated Polynesian stone workers who developed multiple tool reduction sequences for several types of basaltic material, creating unique anthropogenic landscapes in the process. Using laser ablation–inductively coupled plasma–mass spectrometry (LA–ICP–MS) of geological source material from 31 quarries and 83 artifacts from the Sebastián Englert Anthropology Museum, we argue that similar to other culturally valuable stone (i.e. obsidian, scoria, and tuff), there was communal access to and use of Rapa Nui's basalt resources. In turn, the timing of prehistoric communal access to stone hints at patterns of sociopolitical and economic interaction, including cultural connectivity on this eastern Polynesian outpost.

The moment of extinction is generally considered to be the death of the last individual of the species, although the capacity to breed and recover may have been lost before this point. Because a species' potential range may be very large, determining this moment is difficult, and is usually done retrospectively. This difficulty leads to phenomena such as Lazarus taxa, where a species presumed extinct abruptly "reappears" (typically in the fossil record) after a period of apparent absence. More than 99 percent of all species, amounting to over five billion species, that ever lived on Earth are estimated to have died out. Estimates on the number of Earth's current species range from 10 million to 14 million, of which about 1.2 million have been documented and over 86 percent have not yet been described. More recently, in May 2016, scientists reported that 1 trillion species are estimated to be on Earth currently with only one-thousandth of one percent described.Through evolution, species arise through the process of speciation—where new varieties of organisms arise and thrive when they are able to find and exploit an ecological niche—and species become extinct when they are no longer able to survive in changing conditions or against superior competition. The relationship between animals and their ecological niches has been firmly established. A typical species becomes extinct within 10 million years of its first appearance, although some species, called living fossils, survive with virtually no morphological change for hundreds of millions of years. Mass extinctions are relatively rare events; however, isolated extinctions are quite common. Only recently have extinctions been recorded and scientists have become alarmed at the current high rate of extinctions. Most species that become extinct are never scientifically documented. Some scientists estimate that up to half of presently existing plant and animal species may become extinct by 2100.A dagger symbol (†) placed next to the name of a species or other taxon is often done to indicate its status as extinct.

Search for extraterrestrial intelligence | Wikipedia audio article
 
01:01:28
This is an audio version of the Wikipedia Article: Search for extraterrestrial intelligence Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago. Learning by listening is a great way to: - increases imagination and understanding - improves your listening skills - improves your own spoken accent - learn while on the move - reduce eye strain Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone. You can find other Wikipedia audio articles too at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuKfABj2eGyjH3ntPxp4YeQ You can upload your own Wikipedia articles through: https://github.com/nodef/wikipedia-tts "The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing." - Socrates SUMMARY ======= The search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI) is a collective term for scientific searches for intelligent extraterrestrial life, for example, monitoring electromagnetic radiation for signs of transmissions from civilizations on other planets.Scientific investigation began shortly after the advent of radio in the early 1900s, and focused international efforts have been going on since the 1980s. In 2015 Stephen Hawking and Russian billionaire Yuri Milner announced a well-funded effort called the Breakthrough Initiatives.
