Recently came across this YouTube channel called Sustainability Illustrated. It is a really awesome set of videos all using virtual whiteboards specifically dealing with sustainability and environmental issues. The link follows is a 25 video playlist on sustainability at home.
I have been recently looking at a lot of mapping resources. One thing that has been in the back of my mind and possibly should be on all around minds is our environment. I know full well this is a hot topic in today’s world. Nothing hotter then to bring up Climate Change during a Presidential Election season. I have known about The Environmental Doomsday Clock for a while but never looked it up. Just did though and it is very informative. I find it interesting and a starting point to better our world. How Doomday like it is I don’t know but it does bring awareness to us all about our environment and its status.
EnviroAtlas is part of an ongoing commitment to sustainable and healthy communities and safe and sustainable water resources. EnviroAtlas was developed collaboratively by EPA in partnership with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), and other federal and non-profit organizations, universities, and communities including state, county, and city-level stakeholders.
It is a wonderful mapping feature of the EPA and take a look play around in it. I really appreciate the awareness it brings. Valuable resource!
I wanted to also give some environmental resources on climate change, places to find statistics, a video I found fascinating from a Nobel Prize awardee.
I want to share this blog with you all called Going Zero Waste. Its all about sustainability and starting a sustainable lifestyle. I have been reading it for a few days and am learning a lot I did not know or things that I learned more about.
