Our Ocean, Fun Science- Beyond Radiation

The nuclear situation at Fukushima with radiation is not promising, but here are some things that are;

Global

Focus on the positive things that are being done helps, like Germany’s choice to lead the transition to renewable energy. G8 re-thinking nuclear energy last week.

Think about Concentrated Solar Power (CSP), which gives hope for renewable energy on the global level, too.

Check out a blue goo called DeCon Gel, an innovative way to clean up radiation.

Watch the dynamic duo team, Bill Clinton & Mike Bloomberg, go to Brazil to tackle Climate Change with innovation and capital at hand to focus on cities.

Local

On the local level, if you are part of World Team Now’s (WTN) California constituency, will you please consider being a volunteer for Kids Ocean Day?  Join in tomorrow with the youth to clean up the beach, and help deliver a message with aerial art about the oceans. Kid’s Ocean Day is an event World Team Now  loves because it makes a difference!

If you are part of WTN’s New York constituency, consider the World Science Festival Events starting tonight until the 6th throughout NYC. Here you can indulge in events: Biorhythm: Music and the Body, The Radical New Science of Longevity,  to the timely event that the nuclear industry might benefit from: Illusion of Certainty: Risk, Probability and Chance.  You can watch live events where ever you are in the world, so really it can be local– to you.

Universal

On the universal level, NASA has “From Earth to the Solar System” (FETTSS).  A continuation of the well-received International Year of Astronomy 2009 From Earth to the Universe program, and here perspective can be broadened to consider universal possibilities with this collection of powerful images.

SPACE WEATHER: What is a storm on the Sun like? Most of the time when we talk about “the weather,” we are referring to the state of Earth’s atmosphere that gives us rain, wind, and temperature changes. The “space weather” produced by the Sun extends deep into the Solar System. It drives some of the greatest changes in our local space environment—affecting our magnetosphere, ionosphere, atmosphere, and potentially our climate. The Sun contains very powerful magnetic fields and they can become twisted and tangled, storing enormous amounts of energy. Luckily, Earth’s magnetosphere acts as a shield, and its atmosphere absorbs the dangerous radiation, protecting us.. Image Credit: NASA/ESA/SOHO
