solar renewable energy, biodiversity and wildlife combine

solar renewable energy, biodiversity and wildlife combine in green roof venture

renewable energy meets biodiversity

Today I discovered a very fine video from a 'green roofing' company that goes way beyond the analytical limitations of specialism to achieve many goals at once.

 Nathalie Baumann and Dusty Gedge have collaborated to produce this report:

Only yesterday I was tweeting a report that graveyards are better for biodiversity than city parks, which isn't obvious.
renewable energy meets biodiversity

 So the more research we can access to aid wildlife-friendly urban spaces the better.


biodiversity, building, renewable energy, solar, wildlife


  1. Graveyards...what a waste of space..and materials used to make a casket. I wonder how many tons of wood and metal are buried in the ground? My wife and I will be cremated and the ashes scattered in the garden. I always wanted to be a soil amendment....

  2. I have to be reminded not to walk into traffic as I play Pokeman go...because i am stupid...thank you

  3. Pokeman? Is this a game or an instruction? :)

  4. #biodiversity funding to be maintained at same level biodiversity news Dunedin New Zealand

    At present the council funds projects on a 50:50 cost-sharing basis from the $60,000 annual fund.

    Council research and monitoring officer Garreth Kyle said at present there was an over-subscription by landowners and groups for funding to protect, maintain and enhance biodiversity in the city.

    An alternative funding option to increase the funding limit for two ``flagship projects'' in each of two funding rounds per year to $10,000, and increase the amount allocated to the fund by $20,000 a year was discussed.

    The current model limited applicants to $5000 funding is easily understood and applications are straightforward.

  5. What if we gave #universalincome to people in #biodiversity hotpots? biodiversity news

    But he also argues there are potential solutions, including giving a universal guaranteed income to populations living in or near biodiversity hotspots ...

  6. #trees aiding #biodiversity in urban environment

    Large urban trees are excellent filters for urban pollutants and fine particulates. Trees can provide food, such as fruits, nuts and leaves. Spending time near trees improves physical and mental health by increasing energy level and speed of recovery, while decreasing blood pressure and stress. Trees properly placed around buildings can reduce air conditioning needs by 30% and save energy used for heating by 20–50%. Trees provide habitat, food and protection to plants and animals, increasing urban biodiversity...planting trees today is essential for future generations!
