“For all that’s ever been said about climate change, we haven’t heard nearly enough about the psychological impacts of living in a warming world,” says science writer Britt Wray. In this quick talk, she explores how climate change is threatening our well-being — mental, social and spiritual — and offers a starting point for what we can do about it.

This talk was presented at an official TED conference, and was featured by our editors on the home page.

A journey into the world of our great-grandchildren | DW Documentary

DW Documentary   Published on Jun 1, 2019

What will the world look like in 2060? What role will climate change or the growing world population play? [Online until: July 7, 2019, Part 2 online: June 8, 2019] How does the drive for prosperity fit together with finite resources? John Webster writes a letter to his unborn great-granddaughter in film. “What will the world look like when my great-granddaughter is born?” Filmmaker John Webster has thought about this. He has named her Dorit, and she’ll probably live in the 2060s. He imagines her wearing little yellow rubber boots as she wanders along a shoreline that has by then completely changed out of all recognition. The film is a plea for a more responsible approach to nature for future generations. What kind of world will Dorit experience? What effect will climate change have had? John Webster takes the viewer on a both emotional and physical journey, from Finland through Russia to the Siberian coal mines, then on to the Marshall Islands in the Pacific and through the USA to New York. The world doesn’t actually offer Dorit much hope. By 2050, more than 2.5 billion more people will join the 6.6 billion people alive today: that will mean more than nine billion people are feeding off the land and releasing even more exhaust gases into the atmosphere. A growing percentage of humanity is pursuing prosperity without regard to natural limits. Every year we produce many billions of tons of CO2 and face a rapid succession of storms, droughts and floods,. Climate researchers warn that mankind must drastically reduce its CO2 emissions by 2050, otherwise the planet will no longer be able to support its inhabitants and will gradually shut down everything we base our lives on. _______ DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

Earth’s Rotation Visualized in a Timelapse of the Milky Way Galaxy by Aryeh Nirenberg

August 20, 2019  Kate Sierzputowski

Although the Earth rotates below the sky, aerial time-lapse videos often have the perspective of a celestial scene rushing above the ground. In this brief video by Aryeh Nirenberg, the Milky Way becomes completely stationary, highlighting specifically the Earth’s rotation. Nirenberg recorded the time-lapse with a Sony a7SII with the Canon 24-70mm f2.8 lens while using an equatorial tracking mount over a period of three hours. You can see more of his starscapes on Instagram and Youtube. (via Kottke)

Planetary Panoramas – 360 Degree Night-Sky Time-Lapse by Vincent Brady, Music by Brandon McCoy

Vincent Brady   Published on Jun 17, 2014

Watch remastered version in 4k! https://youtu.be/sUsGBcWeiVQ A multiple camera, 360 degree, night-sky time-lapse (One of the first of its kind!) by photographer Vincent Brady and musician Brandon McCoy. Follow my Photography! https://www.facebook.com/VincentBradyhttps://google.com/+VincentBradyPhoto http://www.vincentbrady.com/ Get Brandon’s Music by Donation/Free Download! http://brandonmccoy1.bandcamp.com/ https://www.facebook.com/BrandonMcCoyhttps://www.youtube.com/BrandonMcCoyM… About Planetary Panoramas – While experimenting with different photography tricks and techniques back in 2012, I was shooting 360 degree panoramas in the daytime and long exposures of the stars streaking in the sky at night. It suddenly became clear that the potential to combine the two techniques could be a trip! Since the Earth is rotating at a steady 1,040 mph I created a custom rig of 4 cameras with fisheye lenses to capture the entire night-sky in motion. Thus the images show the stars rotating around the north star, rising in the east, setting in the west, as well as the effect of the southern pole. The 4 lenses are wide enough to capture the entire night sky and a 360 degree panorama of the scene on Earth. Each camera is doing nonstop long exposures, typically about 1 minute consecutively for the life of the camera battery. Usually about 3 hours. I then made a script to stitch all the thousands of these panoramas into this time-lapse. I created my rig in January of 2013 while in my final semester at Lansing Community College before receiving an associates degree in photography. Given it was winter in Michigan, I didn’t get to chase the notorious clear moonless night sky as much as I had hoped as the region has lots of cloud cover that time of year. Though I was ready on the rare night to go experiment. After graduating in May I had built up quite the urge to hit the road. My rig has taken me to firefly parties in Missouri, dark eerie nights at Devils Tower, through Logan Pass at Glacier National Park, up the mountains of British Columbia, and around the amazing arches and sandstone monuments in the Great American Southwest. Scenes as they appear 0:12 – Delicate Arch, Utah 0:27 – Double Arch, Utah (outside) 0:41 – Double Arch, Utah (inside) 0:57 – Landscape Arch, Utah 1:14 – Turret Arch, Utah 1:28 – Balanced Rock, Utah 1:42 – Logan Pass, Glacier National Park, MT 1:55 – Lake of the Ozarks, MO 2:08 – Kootenay Lake, British Columbia 2:19 – Valhalla, British Columbia 2:30 – Kootenay Lake, British Columbia 2:41 – Badlands, South Dakota 2:51 – Windows/Turret Arch – Utah (Lunar Eclipse) 3:00 – Garden of Eden – Utah 3:10 – Monument Valley – Utah 3:26 – Totem Poles, Monument Valley – Utah 3:39 – Sleepy Hollow, Michigan These are the images I created on the cold, dark, sleepless nights under awe-spiring skies. The music is composed and recorded by my very good friend, the acoustic fingerpicking guitar prodigy Brandon McCoy! Brandon who is also from the greater Lansing area in Mid-Michigan is quite the acoustic instrumentalist. The song chosen for this time-lapse is called ‘One Letter From Lady.’ I moved to Michigan when I was 15 and Brandon was the first friend I made. He was the cool kid playing Pink Floyd licks on a $2 guitar at the time. Soon, after he had spent his cold, dark, sleepless nights perfecting his craft, he started coming up with his very own instrumentals. Some of which are upbeat by mixing picking, slapping, and drumming on the guitar while other compositions of his are calm and soothing and can put you in a meditative trance if you just close your eyes. It has been a great experience watching each other grow as artist for over the past 10 years, and you better believe we will be collaborating on projects like this in the very near future. Speaking for the both of us, we are grateful that you checked this out this project. If you enjoyed it, don’t be selfish… Share it with your friends!

Abstracted Dual Landscapes Created Using Cleverly Placed Mirrors &

August 23, 2018  Laura Staugaitis

Photographer Sebastian Magnani carefully positions round mirrors in outdoor settings to capture two landscapes at once: the ground below and the sky above. In the ongoing series Reflections, some compositions reflect connected imagery, like blossom-covered grass and a flowering tree. Others juxtapose man-made surfaces like asphalt with organic branches. By removing the usual context of landscape images, Magnani allows the viewer to focus on the textural qualities of the environment, and some images even veer into illusions, as with the cloudy night sky that appears like a full moon.  You can see more from the Swiss photographer, including portraits, on Instagram and Facebook. Magnani has also recently started offering prints of the Reflections series on Society6. (via Bored Panda)

Repurposing the World’s Plastic Waste: An Interview With Assemblage Sculptor Thomas Deininger

August 28, 2019  Kate Sierzputowski

Every year more than eight million tons of plastic are dumped into our oceans. This anxiety, coupled with fears of a dramatic decline in insect populations and a global climate crisis, fuel the assemblage-based works of Thomas Deininger (previously). In a new short film by gnarly bay, clips of Deininger in his studio are supercut with footage showing the many ways that plastic has laid damage to our world’s sea creatures and environment. It is these bits of mindlessly discarded plastic that the Bristol, Rhode Island-based artist uses to create his sculptural optical illusions—which are often of the exact same animals and insects that the plastic threatens. You can see more of Deininger’s three-dimensional works built from found objects on Instagram.
