We haven’t seen a quarter of known bee species since the 1990s


Bees feed us. Many of the 20,000 species pollinate 85 percent of food crops and fruits around the world—everything from garlic and grapefruits to coffee and kale.

In recent decades, the number of bee species reported in the wild has declined globally. The sharpest decrease occurred between 2006 and 2015, with roughly 25 percent fewer species.

During the second half of the past century, a global agricultural boom led to habitat loss, while widespread use of pesticides killed off many plants bees rely on for food.

The Patent That Could Destroy Monsanto And Change The World | Eco Snippets

In 2006, a patent was granted to a man named Paul Stamets. Though Paul is the world’s leading mycologist, his patent has received very little attention and exposure. Why is that? Stated by executives in the pesticide industry, this patent represents “the most disruptive technology we have ever witnessed.” And when the executives say disruptive, they are referring to it being disruptive to the chemical pesticides industry.

What has Paul discovered? The mycologist has figured out how to use mother nature’s own creations to keep insects from destroying crops. It’s what is being called SMART pesticides. These pesticides provide safe & nearly permanent solution for controlling over 200,000 species of insects – and all thanks to the ‘magic’ of mushrooms.

Flower power! The movement to bring back Britain's beautiful meadows | Biodiversity | The Guardian

More than 97% of meadows have been destroyed, but the fight is now on to restore them. They are essential for plants and insects – but is it wise to lose food-producing fields?

Meadows excel at storing carbon; grasslands in Britain store more carbon than any other habitat. “What’s really exciting is that the biggest levels of carbon sequestration happen when you convert an arable field into a species-rich pasture,” says Dines. Once established, a meadow is a stable store of carbon; plough it up, and the carbon is released.

Garden leaves as embroidered artworks – in pictures | Art and design | The Guardian


❤️️
American artist Hillary Waters Fayle creates intricately patterned artworks by delicately stitching colourful threads into leaves. “I want this work to ask people to slow down and think about this leaf – what beauty can be achieved when working with care.” She collects the leaves from her yard or from parks and maps out the design on each one before stitching. She first started experimenting while working at a summer camp for young adults themed around environmental education. “It was here that I first combined my passions – art and embroidery with nature.”

Welcome aboard! help make this a spiffy place :) :)

I recommend cross referencing your #activism, with things perhaps like #environment or #socialjustice ect :) to branch out more :)

Take care!!
 
Caroline Schmüser and Onno Tasler from german online journalism project #Krautreporter are doing things different. Together with a group of readers they are looking for good news instead of bad news. Here is a sampling of 77 good news from this year (in german), which you probably didn't pay attention to. I freed it from the paywall for you, you could also do it by just subscribing.

It is about
  • moments of hope in #corona -crisis
  • where #environment is improved
  • the best means against hatred and populism
  • small steps in #climate protection, which together might have a great effect
  • enforcing #democracy and cooperation
  • the road as living room - how #traffic can be improved
  • lesser violence brings more peace
  • more equality means more freedom
  • here the poorest get help
This sampler is from amidst our community. Krautreporter is the first german magazine that works and investigates together with the members as often as possible. We are convinced that our journalistic work improves thereby.
 

Windfarms in Great Britain break record for clean power generation


Forty per cent of Friday’s electricity was generated in windfarms thanks to blustery winter weather
Blustery winter weather helped Great Britain’s windfarms set a record for clean power generation, which made up more than 40% of its electricity on Friday.
Wind turbines generated 17.3GW on Friday afternoon, according to figures from the electricity system operator, narrowly beating the previous record set in early January this year.

A palm oil alternative could help save rainforests | BBC News

There's an ugly truth to the beauty products we slap on our faces and an unsavoury truth to the foods we eat: many are made with palm oil, which is responsible for the rapid deforestation of some of the world's most biodiverse forests, destroying the habitat of already endangered species like the orangutan, pygmy elephant and Sumatran rhino.
But now the biotech industry says it has come up with a solution - a synthetic alternative that doesn't involve burning down or clearing any rainforest. It says this could eventually replace natural palm oil in everything from shampoos, soaps, detergents and lipsticks, to food products like packaged bread, biscuits, margarine, ice cream and chocolate.

Interceptor Series Production to Start | The Ocean Cleanup


#environment #pollution

Science at work: they had an idea. They tested it. They deemed it not efficient enough, then science taught us that most plastic in the oceans comes from rivers. So they imagined a way to clean up rivers, and it works.

Great job. I'm happy to support Ocean Cleanup.
