GREENPEACE — Animal Collective’s “Tangerine Reef”: Myth, Mystery and Subtle Environmentalism — PLANET EARTH MACRO WORLD group

PLANET EARTH MACRO WORLD has over 1,500 members and over 84,000 photos and videos. 

GREENPEACE

That environment of the unknown — and protecting it — was the inspiration behind the band Animal Collective’s latest album and video, Tangerine Reef. Created to coincide with the International Year of the Reef, the musicians tell how art can help inspire us to reckon with climate change before its too late.

A must see video, ck. it out.

The video for Tangerine Reef shows corals moving 10 times their natural speed, making them seem otherworldly but humanlike. Slimy appendages wriggle and feed neon, tessellating mouths. At times, they seem to smile. At other times, the images drift into patterns and abstraction.

There is still a lot we don’t know about corals: Scientists weren’t sure how they reproduced until 1981 and researchers are still learning the details about how they live, grow and respond to environmental stresses.

AMERICAN BIRD CONSERVANCY — STEEPEST POPULATION DEClINES OF ANY SONG BIRD — GOLDEN-WINGED WARBLER — PLANET EARTH BUTTERFLIES, BEES, BUGS, AND INSECTS group

The Golden-winged Warbler is a dynamo, practically buzzing with activity as it moves through the trees. It also undertakes an amazing migration, traveling from its breeding grounds in the northeastern United States to wintering areas in Central and South America.

The species is notable for another reason: It has suffered one of the steepest population declines of any songbird. Since 1966, the species has been reduced by 66 percent, mostly because of habitat loss on its breeding grounds.

Our Food, Our Future

There is a better system. Scientific progress means that positive change is possible. Ecological farming re-connects people with food through farmers, using science to enhance and sustain biodiversity and its healthier harvests. While industrial farming ignores the drastic consequences of climate change and adds to them, ecological farming works with a world in a state of flux, and always with the future in mind.

Today, progressive ecological techniques, together with individual daily choices empower us to farm, cook, eat and change the future of food, together.
