Landfill Becomes Nature Park
 
01:11
A landfill becomes a nature park. The Mucking Landfill in Essex, England was one of the largest trash dumps in Europe. For 50 years, trash from London was shipped down the River Thames to the 845 acre Essex landfill, creating a layer of waste 80 feet deep. Now, after a project costing around 3.8 million dollars, part of it has been turned into a nature preserve for rare wild flowers and wildlife. The location has been turned into a nature park, where all kinds of wildlife can be found thanks to the Essex Wildlife Trust. Several species of birds have been observed in the area, along with harvest mice, newts, orchids and adders to name a few. Sir David Attenborough, president emeritus of The Wildlife Trusts said that the "project is visionary and one of many remarkable projects led by The Wildlife Trusts around the UK that bring benefits to the natural world and communities." Another landfill in Grimsby, England is going to be transformed into a 17 acre park and the location of 250 prospective homes. The site in Grimsby has not been used for anything since the 1970s.

LAND FILL : The Politics of Waste
 
07:22
LAND FILL: The Politics of Waste is a speculative design project by Louise Krstic as part of her thesis for Masters of Landscape Architecture at The University of Melbourne, completed in November 2013. Using the politics of waste as a theoretical lens, the project explores the contentious proposal for a new landfill in the Mornington Peninsula Shire. Design research reveals that although the portrayed by the media as a battle between local residence and big business, the issue is far more complicated. By exploring the sociopolitical and volumetric conditions surrounding the proposal at the Old Pioneer Quarry, it is revealed that although opposing the landfill proposal, it is the residents who are contributing to waste generation and demand for a new landfill in the Shire. LAND FILL sets up a regional strategy for the reduction and diversion of waste from landfill at existing and proposed waste management facilities in the Mornington Peninsula Shire. Using the Old Pioneer Quarry as a case study putting these strategies into practice. The strategy unfolds over time, yet is highly contingent on the volume of waste generated by the community. The results of the strategies of sorting and reduction of waste are directly translated into a multifunctional and adaptive landscape with the power to generate sociopolitical change and become a region precedent.

Human NO TIP Message - 7 News
 
01:39
The Ross Trust and Peninsula Waste Management want to turn the old Pioneer quarry on the side of Arthurs Seat into a putrid dumping ground. The site was once an open cut granite mine but has since been reclaimed by nature and become a beautiful pristine place, with a stunning lake surrounded by bush that is home to many native plants and wildlife. It is in an environmentally valuable area in between two state parks and this proposal poses not only a massive health risk to Peninsula residents and the environment, but also threatens our thriving tourism industry and many local businesses. The planning application for a tip in the quarry states that it will take all rubbish including asbestos and will not have any recycling capability. The Mornington Peninsula Shire Council were supposed to oversee the conversion of the site into a lake with walking tracks and picnic areas for the residents of the Mornington Peninsula and it's visitors, but instead, we're now staring down the barrel of an absolute disaster. On Sunday 25th August 2013, roughly 1000 members of the Mornington Peninsula Community formed a huge human NO TIP sign which was filmed and photographed from the air. The community wanted to demonstrate their anger after an EPA Conference failed to answer their questions and concerns about the tip proposal. The message was filmed at the Hillview Reserve, Boundary Road, Dromana near to the Old Pioneer Quarry which the Ross Trust owns. There were speakers from the community opposing the tip including Peninsula Preservation Group Inc. Mary Karamitsios from PPG said "The Ross Trust continues to push on with this application even though it has been demonstrated to them that the tip is not wanted or needed by anyone. "There are other safer, viable alternatives." Dr Mark Fancett, Vice President of PPG pointed out that there is compelling scientific evidence that states that fire risk of this tip is magnified as this site is surrounded by bush land rated among the Shire's highest bushfire risk areas. "Litter, gas emissions, land and groundwater contamination would gravely affect the water table, Sheepwash Creek and the Bay and flora and fauna, some of them on the endangered list". Rosalie White, owner of Mainridge Estate winery, representing the local vignerons said a bush fire starting in the proposed rubbish tip could devastate the peninsula's $60 million a year wine industry. The Greens Sue Pennicuik MLC and local candidate Dr Martin Rush also spoke out against the tip. The Ross Trust has so far barely responded to community concerns and the community wants to know why the Mornington Peninsula Shire failed to provide accessible information to the community about viable alternative waste management options. For further information visit http://www.savearthursseat.com/ So far, over 20,000 people have signed petitions opposing the tip.

Managing wastewater in a water sensitive city - full resource recovery .
 
07:43
A waste-water treatment plant , cleverly designed can take the sewage from a city and convert it to a resource. Sludge from this WWTP for instance is a very good fertilizer for farmers around the city . The treated waste-water now goes to a wetland and further purifies it. This fills up a large 50 Hectare spread lake. The lake is full of fishes and between a 100 to 200 kg of fish are harvested daily. Birds fill the wetlands and the lake and therefore it becomes a bio-diversity spot. The water in the lake recharges and raises the groundwater all around. Old open wells are full of water. This water is potable except for some basic treatment such as an online sand filter and an online chlorinator. Sewage has been converted to pure water using natures services and with resource recovery at all stages. A water sensitive city would allow all such play and integrate it into its overall water management plan.There is much that can be achieved if attention is paid, right insitutions and incentives created and accountability demanded.

Ecological Resiliency of Alberta's Wetlands - Dr. Suzanne Bayley
 
28:18
Dr. Suzanne Bayley makes the case that Alberta wetlands are a special case when considering ecological resiliency. It depends on the wetland class and the frequency of disturbance. Her experience is that they vary greatly in their resiliency. And wetlands can shift tropic states quite readily. The challenge of wetland restoration or wetland construction is illustrated by the stress index for storm water ponds. Dr. Suzanne Bayley is a professor of peatlands and wetlands science at the Department of Biology, University of Alberta. Her presentation was part of a seminar on "Resiliency of Reclaimed Boreal Forest Landscapes, Jan. 22, 2013, sponsored by OSRIN and the Department of Renewable Resources, University of Alberta.

They've got you by the balls - George Carlin
 
03:00
"The real owners are the big wealthy business interests that control things and make all the important decisions. Forget the politicians, they're an irrelevancy. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don't. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They've long since bought and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the statehouses, the city halls. They've got the judges in their back pockets. And they own all the big media companies, so that they control just about all of the news and information you hear. They've got you by the balls. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying ­ lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want; they want more for themselves and less for everybody else." "But I'll tell you what they don't want. They don't want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don't want well-informed, well-educated people capable of critical thinking. They're not interested in that. That doesn't help them. That's against their interests. They don't want people who are smart enough to sit around the kitchen table and figure out how badly they're getting fucked by a system that threw them overboard 30 fucking years ago. "You know what they want? Obedient workers ­ people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork but just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shittier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, reduced benefits, the end of overtime and the vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it. And, now, they're coming for your Social Security. They want your fucking retirement money. They want it back, so they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street. And you know something? They'll get it. They'll get it all, sooner or later, because they own this fucking place. It's a big club, and you ain't in it. You and I are not in the big club." "This country is finished."
