Comments Off on INFOGRAPHIC: Why It’s Important to Insulate Your Home Properly

Did you know that insulating your house properly can save you money in both winter and summertime? In winter, insulation keeps warm air from escaping your home and stops drafts from chilling you to the core, while in summer, it regulates your home’s temperature and keeps you from being baked. Insulation also reduces greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change. It’s come a long way from the ubiquitous pink foam, and there are now green options such as waste paper, seaweed, hemp, and waste material options that can be used within your walls and attics. Check out this infographic for more information about how insulation can work for you, as well as the Dos and Don’ts associated with its installation.

Comments Off on U.S. Shrimp May Not Be What Consumers Bargained For

Marine conservation group Oceana has uncovered a nationwide shrimp scandal that has seafood lovers feeling queasy. Using DNA testing, the group examined 143 shrimp dishes from stores and restaurants across America, finding that a whopping 30 percent were misrepresented. Their findings, which ranged from mislabeling farm-raised shrimp as wild, or misrepresenting species of shrimp being sold, have prompted authorities to push for the passing of the Safety and Fraud Enforcement for Seafood Act , which has been introduced to Congress and awaits approval.

This Incredible Living Building Hosts More Greenery on Its Facade Than the Original, Undeveloped Plot of Land

Comments Off on This Incredible Living Building Hosts More Greenery on Its Facade Than the Original, Undeveloped Plot of Land

Next year will mark thirty years since the construction of artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser’s iconic Hundertwasserhaus in the Kegelgasse district of Vienna, Austria. Hundertwasser’s fantastical artistic vision was inspired by his dream to align architecture with nature in every sense. At its conception, the artist vowed to replace every piece of vegetation lost in the construction of the residential complex. For every square foot of structure built, an equal area of trees and shrubs was added, resulting in the abundant majestic greenery that cloaks its facade today.

New Study Reveals Earth’s Oceans May Be Almost as Old as the Planet

Comments Off on New Study Reveals Earth’s Oceans May Be Almost as Old as the Planet

A groundbreaking new study led by scientists at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) has revealed that the first evidence of water on Earth and in the inner solar system dates the arrival of water to a much earlier time than previously believed. Thanks to new data from NASA’s 4-Vesta project, the team demonstrated that the most primitive type of known meteorite could have brought water to Earth very early on in the planet’s formation. The implications for an earlier “wet Earth” include the possibility that life on our planet began much earlier than previously thought and could once have existed on the other inner planets .

Salt Destroys Manhattan-Sized Croplands Every Week, UN Study Shows

Comments Off on Salt Destroys Manhattan-Sized Croplands Every Week, UN Study Shows

A new UN paper  reveals that excess salt in the soil has destroyed 20 percent of all irrigated land worldwide — an area equal to the size of France. Every day for more than 20 years, an average of 2,000 hectares of irrigated cropland in arid and semi-arid areas across 75 countries have been degraded by salt. With the world population expected to hit nine to 10 billion people by 2050, obviously we can’t afford to be losing productive, arable land. Thankfully, the report also makes a number of recommendations for swift action to reverse the trend before it becomes too expensive to do so.
