Tesla Energy Battery

Every once in a while I find a talk that doesn’t come from TED but one I want to share because of my personal interest in the subject. I saw this video posted on Facebook and really wanted to share it. The era of clean energy is here. The means are not just on someones drawing board, but are in production.

I am so grateful to see this happening!

This video was posted on Youtube by Tesla Motors on  May 2, 2015. To learn more about Tesla Batteries go to http://www.teslamotors.com/powerwall .

Enjoy!!

TED Talk Thursday – Marla Spivak – Why bees are disappearing

According to ted.com: “Honeybees have thrived for 50 million years, each colony 40 to 50,000 individuals coordinated in amazing harmony. So why, seven years ago, did colonies start dying en masse? Marla Spivak reveals four reasons which are interacting with tragic consequences. This is not simply a problem because bees pollinate a third of the world’s crops. Could this incredible species be holding up a mirror for us?”

“Marla Spivak researches bees’ behavior and biology in an effort to preserve this threatened, but ecologically essential, insect.”

Watch this video to see what you can do to help.

For those of you not familiar with TED Talks here is a brief summery from www.ted.com:

“TED is a small nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader. Along with two annual conferences — the TED Conference in Long Beach and Palm Springs each spring, and the TEDGlobal conference in Oxford UK each summer — TED includes the award-winning TEDTalks video site, the Open Translation Project and Open TV Project, the inspiring TED Fellows and TEDx programs, and the annual TED Prize”

TED Talk Thursday – Allan Savory: How to fight desertification and reverse climate change

According to www.ted.com: “Desertification is a fancy word for land that is turning to desert,” begins Allan Savory in this quietly powerful talk. And it’s happening to about two-thirds of the world’s grasslands, accelerating climate change and causing traditional grazing societies to descend into social chaos. Savory has devoted his life to stopping it. He now believes — and his work so far shows — that a surprising factor can protect grasslands and even reclaim degraded land that was once desert.”

“Allan Savory works to promote holistic management in the grasslands of the world. In 1992, Savory and his wife, Jody Butterfield, formed the Africa Centre for Holistic Managementin Zimbabwe, a learning site for people all over Africa. In 2010, the Centre won the Buckminster Fuller Challenge for its work in reversing desertification. In that same year he and his wife, with others, founded the Savory Institute in Boulder, Colorado, to promote large-scale restoration of the world’s grasslands.”

Enjoy this very interesting talk.
