Manatees in Florida feed on coastal seagrass, a species at risk from phosphorus surge
On one occasion, ironically, in Clear Water, Florida, I experienced their passive and gentle presence. Unequivocally, the nuances around their life model require hard science. But it seems like, today at least, human political divisions are being superseded by the manatee. We are putting political division aside, in order to save a remarkable species.
The Popularity of Floating Solar Makes the Possibility of Cleaning Up Water Real
Nature-as-model, biomimicry, is the gentle arm-twister that pulls us towards sustainability
In a confused floating solar market, BioHavens offer a ray of hope for water quality that makes floating solar feasible and sustainable
Today the nascent FPV (Floating PhotoVoltaics) market is confused. As China surges ahead, as France leverages the aggressive marketing efforts of Ciel et Terre (a provider of FPV), in the U.S., remarkable opportunities to develop sustainable solar projects are being missed. Italy has actually banned development of floating solar on reservoirs…truly a remarkable and confusing policy in light of the negative impact on alternative energy development by serious players like ENEL. Especially today when there is an emerging floating solar platform option that will enhance water quality.
Biomimicry - nature as model - will steer a course through the vagaries of human endeavor towards sustainable living
Is it true… can we grow new real estate and take a bite out of greenhouse gas emissions in the process?
Who would challenge the obvious truth, the basic statement that “they aren’t making more real estate”? It’s clear in the general public’s mind that real estate is finite. Right? But is it? Since 2005, Floating Island International has “launched” 10,000 pieces of real estate around the planet - some large, some small, all of them representing new “land” that wasn’t there before. And these new islands actually grow over time, and as they grow, they fight climate change.
It is almost 50 years since the Clean Water Act so why is water more polluted than ever?
Biomimicry works for profit too!
