Robber fly - Nature photographer Thomas Shahan specializes in amazing portraits of tiny insects. It isn't easy. Shahan says that this Robber Fly (Holcocephala fusca), for instance, is "skittish" and doesn't like its picture taken.

“… 4 - Energy (again)

The natural resources of the planet are finite and will not support the continuation of what you've been doing. We've been saying this for a decade. Watch for increased science and increased funding for alternate ways of creating electricity (finally). Watch for the very companies who have the most to lose being the ones who fund it. It is the beginning of a full realization that a change of thinking is at hand. You can take things from Gaia that are energy, instead of physical resources. We speak yet again about geothermal, about tidal, about wind. Again, we plead with you not to over-engineer this. For one of the things that Human Beings do in a technological age is to over-engineer simple things. Look at nuclear - the most over-engineered and expensive steam engine in existence!

Your current ideas of capturing energy from tidal and wave motion don't have to be technical marvels. Think paddle wheel on a pier with waves, which will create energy in both directions [waves coming and going] tied to a generator that can power dozens of neighborhoods, not full cities. Think simple and decentralize the idea of utilities. The same goes for wind and geothermal. Think of utilities for groups of homes in a cluster. You won't have a grid failure if there is no grid. This is the way of the future, and you'll be more inclined to have it sooner than later if you do this, and it won't cost as much….”

HP injects US$2m to help WWF curb climate change

By Julia Ng, Channel NewsAsia | 07 June 2007 2332 hrs

SINGAPORE : The World Wildlife Fund says besides governments, large corporations can play an important role in curbing climate change.

And one example is its partnership with global IT company Hewlett-Packard.

The company is contributing over US$2 million in cash and technology to the WWF's Climate Watch programme, specifically for initiatives in the Asia Pacific region.

Heavy industrialisation has given Planet Earth a fever and nations across the globe are feeling the heat.

When the ice comes down, the sea level goes up, flooding farmlands.

Singapore and its Asian neighbours are not spared the impacts of global warming as its people bore the brunt of flash floods and unseasonal storms.

It is a message that moved some global corporations like HP to take action.

The company has allocated more than US$2 million to set up three projects across the world, aimed at curbing climate change.

In North America, it is setting up an epicentre for climate conservation.

In Europe, HP's initiative is aimed at cutting greenhouse gas emissions, by using information and communication technology.

But the bulk of the budget goes to India and China - 70 percent of the money allocated will be used to fund what is called a "Climate Witness" project.

It is an on-line forum aimed at recording and collating the tangible consequences of climate changes on individuals.

The aim is to get local communities to implement policy changes on climate change.

Nadeem Shafi, Climate Programme Development - Asia Pacific, WWF, said: "What the donation by HP does is it provides a useful start to that programme and... these specific projects in different parts of China and India are actually focused on key strategies, which may be able to be replicated elsewhere. So these are almost like petri dishes where we can learn by example and then potentially roll those two programmes out further beyond those two countries."

When it comes to curbing climate change, certainly a lot more can be done.

And the latest initiative by HP is just one example of how big businesses can advance the green cause, and limit the impact of climate change on the planet.

Rita Sully, Corporate Social Responsibility Manager - Asia Pacific and Japan, HP Asia Pacific, said: "In terms of carbon reduction, or reduction of footprint, HP is very involved in looking at our own facilities, and we'll be working with WWF on our own facilities and look at reducing our own carbon emissions.

"So we've made our commitment of course to reduce our own carbon emissions by 2010. So we'll be working towards that... we're also helping our customers to look at how they can reduce their carbon footprint as well."

So apart from companies, conserving energy is very much about choosing energy efficient measures and habits at the individual level.

Besides the Climate Watch programme, the WWF also runs a Climate Saver programme, where it gets large manufacturers like Sony and IBM to commit to cutting carbon gas emissions that cause global warming. - CNA/ch
