The Clever Girl’s Guide to Choosing Coral Reef Safe Sunscreens

Published

on

You need to choose a coral reef safe sunscreen before your next trip to the beach.

Forget that old bottle you have lurking in the back of your bathroom closet. And definitely, don’t go for the same mainstream brand you’ve been using forever.

Because if you do, you’ll be partly responsible for the death and destruction of coral and coral reefs across the world. Really.

Whilst you’ve been happily chilling out at the beach and enjoying the ocean over the years, the sunscreen you’ve been (very sensibly) wearing has been slowly washing off your skin and killing coral reefs.

Coral Reef Image

Researchers say that an astonishing 14,000 tons of sunscreen lotions end up this way, and even more shockingly, that 80% of the gorgeous coral reefs in the Caribbean have been lost because of sunscreens.

That’s why last week, Hawaiian officials passed a ground-breaking bill which banned the use of sunscreens which contain the two worst reef-bleaching chemicals; oxybenzone and octinoxate. This is their last-ditch attempt to protect their struggling coral reefs.

Which leaves us with a massive problem.

Because these nasty coral-killing ingredients aren’t just in a handful of sunscreens but in almost all the sunscreens we’ve ever used.

So, if you’re a sun-worshipper or fan of the outdoors, you want to protect yourself from skin cancer and you also want to protect the health of the world’s coral reefs, what are you supposed to do? You can’t exactly ditch sunscreen altogether, despite your principles…

But you don’t have to! There are many wonderful coral reef safe sunscreens out there which will help protect your skin and coral reefs around the world from damage. Here’s what you need to know about the chemicals and choosing a better brand of sunscreen.

sunscreen image

What’s the deal with those sunscreen chemicals?

Hawaii passed the sunscreen bill because of the toxic chemicals which almost all regular sunscreens contain. These are oxybenzone (also known as benzophenone-3) and octinoxate, and have been proven to damage and even kill coral reefs. Here’s why:

#1: They bleach coral reefs

Oxybenzone and octinoxate cause coral reef bleaching. This happens when the algae that usually lives on its surface disappears, exposing the coral underneath and causing it to turn white. If it doesn’t immediately die, it will be more susceptible to disease and much more vulnerable to the effects of climate change.

#2: They prevent coral reproducing properly

Oxybenzone damages coral DNA, leaving it unable to reproduce properly. When this happens, we get fewer coral reefs, and the ones we do have are likely to be deformed and sick.

#3: They can cause coral deformations and strange behavior

These chemicals can also cause disruptions in the coral reef hormone balance which cause strange growth patterns in adult coral.

These two are the only chemicals which have been singled out by the Hawaiian authorities so far, but they’re certainly not the only sunscreen ingredients which affect coral reefs and marine life.

Butylparaben (related to the dangerous parabens in your cosmetics), and 4-Methylbenzylidine Camphor (4MBC) are two other harmful chemicals which have also been linked to coral bleaching and are best avoided.

So, how do I choose a coral reef safe sunscreen?

There are plenty of coral reef safe sunscreens you can choose instead so your summer fun doesn’t result in coral death.

#1: Read the labels on your bottles of sunscreen

Start by getting into the habit of reading your sunscreen bottles to check whether they are coral reef safe, just like you would your food labels.

First watch out for those four toxic chemicals (oxybenzone, octinoxate, Butylparaben and 4-Methylbenzylidine Camphor). Also make an effort to buy an organic, biodegradable, non-toxic, reef-friendly product which hasn’t been tested on animals.

If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the labels, remember the Hawaii State Department’s slogans: ‘If You Can’t Say It, Don’t Spray It.

#2: Use one of these coral reef safe sunscreens instead

Here’s my top pick of the best coral reef safe sunscreens on the market.

1. The Green People

Give yourself a taste of luxury with this beautifully scented, mineral sunscreen which is free from all kinds of nasties like oxybenzone, parabens, phthalates, petrolatum, PABA, SLS, dyes, and oils. Available in SPF 30 and SPF50, it’s soft, non-greasy and feels lovely on your skin.

#3: Be sensible in the sun

Don’t forget there’s also a huge benefit to just being sensible in the sun. Instead of slapping on the sunscreen, protect your skin by covering up with regular clothing like t-shirts and sunhats.

Also, avoid those hotter midday hours between 11 am and 2 pm when the sun is strongest. You’ll still get your tan, but you’ll save dollars on sunscreen and protect those coral reefs too.

So next time you’re planning a trip to the beach, think twice about what sunscreen you’re using and opt for a natural, coral reef safe brand instead. Just one switch could help a coral reef survive or recover.

Cities Of The Future & Sustainable Building 

Published

on

cities of the future image

There have been serious alarms raised over global warming. Different world Leaders have been attending global summits and signing low carbon footprint agreements to reduce the effects of pollution. The construction industry is no exception. They have taken a center seat and are now developing the cities of the future. 

Think of it this way, 40 to 50 years from now, the population will have skyrocketed, yet the land proportions will remain the same. To accommodate these masses, cities must redesign sustainable buildings to accommodate more people yet co-exist peacefully with nature. And not only buildings but also the future cars. The idea is that they will need to be faster and maneuver in the air since the land will be limited. 

Let’s have a detailed look at these cities, shall we?

What Will the Cities of the Future Look Like?

There are some notable key elements present in the cities of the future. These include: 

#1: The Water

Rainwater Harvesting and Recycling

As of 2022, the statistics on natural rivers and water sources are alarming. They are drying by the day, and rainfall is becoming unpredictable. The cities of the future are to be designed in such a way that they can harvest rainwater without the use of gutters since we can no longer accommodate massive roofs. Instead, these sustainable buildings will use absorbent rain gardens, bioswales, and pools to collect the rainwater. And then divert this water for filtration and recycling before channeling it into your water dispensers. 

A Sponge city

Besides rainwater, the cities are also to be built in such a way that they protect upland water systems. As a result, they will revive natural habitats while protecting the city against floods ad tsunamis. 

#2: Ecology

Sustainable Building Image

A thriving relationship between humans and nature will be a major consideration. Sustainable building technologies will ensure the cities are compact and dense with minimal impact on the ecosystem. Moreover, these buildings are designed to protect our natural resources such as water bodies, soil, and air. 

#3: The Transportation network

Well, in as much as a view of flying cars doesn’t look like a distant dream today, the cities of the future have a different school of thought. The idea is to keep a comprehensive transportation network that prioritizes pedestrian space. So we are looking into a future city that encourages people to walk and cycle more instead of using cars. 

This way, we become a healthy nation while reducing pollution generated by the automobile industry. Think of the noise from the hooting, screeching brake pads, over-speeding cars, and speed bikes to the smoke pollution common in city setups high-speed addition, commuting in the city will be more affordable and safer.

And if you don’t fancy cycling, you will have a fully automated high-speed rail network traversing different regions within the city. See, we are slowly advancing into a high-speed commute. With electric trains and alternative fuel cars already developed, we are looking into a future with high-speed rail stations.

#4: Energy

Electricity is good but not sustainable, and so is gas energy. The cities of the future are looking into harnessing power from natural sources, especially solar and wind. The sustainable buildings will have solar windows and walls instead of the current bulky independent solar panels. That way, you don’t need extra space to tap your energy. Similarly, you don’t need to heat your home during the cold seasons because, first, the buildings are self-heating, and secondly, such an ecosystem cannot experience extreme temperatures.  

#5: Recreation

Have you experienced virtual reality? Brace yourself for the future of recreation. And not just for the entertainment but as a more advanced way of reconnecting with humanity globally. Today we can comfortably tour a museum in France in the comfort of our homes. We will experience these and more in the near future because then, arts, entertainment, culture, and recreation will be shared worldwide via virtual and augmented reality.

#6: The Community

We have had our share of how dangerous a stressed community can be. The cities of the future will be addressing this problem by ensuring community integration through the use of shared spaces and social amenities. This way, the residents feel a sense of belonging and enjoy social equality.

In addition, since automation and artificial intelligence are projected to advance soon, people will not be required to work as hard as they do now. Our economy will be flexible enough to accommodate flexible working hours.

A Look at Some of the Cities of the Future

Given the above features, we already have these cities built and thriving. 

Forest City Liuzhou, China

Designed by architect Stefano Boeri and constructed in 2017.

They have designed this city to accommodate massive forests and green vegetation, as the name suggests. Different species of trees and plants almost entirely surround the houses, schools, offices, hospitals, and hotels. The 175 hectares of land stretching along the Liujiang River can accommodate 30,000 residents, 40,000 trees, and 1 million diverse plant species. Amazing, right? 

This city is estimated to absorb 10,000 tons of CO2 annually and over 57 tons of fine dust. The result is a clean city free from atmospheric pollution.

Net City, China

Designed by NBBJ, “Net City” is a product of Tencent, the internet goliath, also located in China Shenzhen province. Sitting on 320 acres of land, “Net City” mainly targets employees with offices for work, homes, and recreational centers.

It fits in the “Sponge City” feature since they plan to manage flooding and runoff as their primary water source.

Oceanix City, South Korea

Introducing the world’s pioneer floating city in Busan, South Korea. The key feature will be the infrastructure that rises with the sea. In other words, a flood-proof city. Talk of a sustainable building beyond expectations. Now, they will achieve this effect by using Biorock, a material that is not only buoyant but also self-healing. The older it grows, the stronger it becomes. According to the engineers behind this city, this material is three times stronger than ordinary cement concrete. Let’s wait and see what the beautiful city Oceanix will look like. 

The Bottom Line

No matter what your feelings may be about global warming and sustainability, the cities of the future are being developed in an effort to create a more symbiotic relationship between nature and people. If pollution is indeed reduced through sustainable development, then the dream of a zero carbon footprint may only be a few years away from now. Do you think this is possible?

Planetary Intelligence: the Evolution, the Present, and the Future 

Published

on

Planetary Intelligence Image

When an individual human brain thinks, the entire planet world thinks. With that, our planet is slowly becoming a global brain. Planetary intelligence is the most critical development in the history of our planet, an evolution that goes back up to four and a half billion years. And, what we humans do in the next decade or so could be the determining factor between the extinction of humankind in the worst case, or a brilliant new age of prosperity for all humans, if we do things right. 

Evolution of Planetary Intelligence: Interconnectedness of Life-forms and Planets

Looking at the scientific theory of creation, in the beginning, individual atoms came together to form molecules and ultimately developed cellular intelligence. In this intelligent interconnectivity, molecules clumped into multi-cellular intelligence, collective intelligence for cells. Then, they evolved multiple times until the Homo sapiens came into being.

Next, the human beings began working together using collective human intelligence at the tribal level, then at the city level. Ultimately, the growth of the internet makes it possible for collective human intelligence to work at a planetary level; hence, planetary intelligence.

Human beings are only a section of the biosphere. The other creatures making up the biosphere include plants and microbes. Eventually, the biosphere discovered how to host life. It created self-sustaining systems that helped the Earth exist for billions of years. As a result, the interconnectedness of life and planets continues to deepen throughout the billions of years.

Scientific Studies of Planetary Intelligence

Adam Frank, an astrophysicist from the University of Rochester, carried out a “thought experiment” that used scientific theory and philosophical questions on how life on Earth can alter a planet. In his presentations, Adam claims that cognitive activities of living things like plants, animals, and microbes operate on a planetary level to transform the earth. 

He gives examples of how plants ‘invented’ a way of making their food for survival. Hence, through photosynthesis, plants release oxygen and alter how the entire planet functions.

Another notable study on planetary intelligence is by British scientist James Lovelock and American evolutionary biologist Lynn Margulis, who built upon the principle of the Gaia hypothesis. Gaia’s theory claims that as life on Earth changes, it also affects how the planetary system evolves. Hence, the evolution of the biosphere alters the nature of the atmosphere, lithosphere, cryosphere, and hydrosphere. 

The back-and-forth effect has been in motion since the beginning of time. And the recent human activities that have led to deforestation, pollution, and climate change might be considered proof that the Gaia hypothesis is at work. 

Relevance of Computers & Artificial Intelligence in Advancing Planetary Intelligence

artificial intelligence image

We now have new forms of information processing that include computers and the field of artificial intelligence. Today, billions of human brains are simultaneously working on the internet. Through computing, humanity applies technology to influence the environment. We use such technologies as geo-engineering, terraforming, and seeding.

Next, there is a simultaneous rapid development of trillions of artificial intelligence that supplement and augment those human brains. Examples of how we use artificial intelligence in transportation, media, manufacturing, healthcare, education, and customer service are as follows: 

  • Development of autonomous vehicles with minimal carbon footprint;
  • AI-powered robots working on assembly lines to automate manufacturing processes;
  • Using AI to speed up pharmaceutical research, improve disease diagnosis, and facilitate virtual nursing services for a personalized patient experience;
  • Digitalization of education systems, use of virtual classes and tutors, and facial recognition systems that analyze student participation in the virtual learning sessions;
  • Use of AI in analyzing complex financial reports, extrapolating data, and making accurate projections;
  • Implementing AI assistance in customer service.

Hence, the advancement of computers and artificial intelligence networks form the basis for which the architecture of global cognition evolves. We are moving from individual human brains augmented by technology to a global brain that is trillions of times smarter and more powerful than the human brain. 

Domains of Planetary Intelligence

Scientists believe that there are four main domains of planetary intelligence as follows: 

  • Immature biosphere – Early life on the planet
  • Mature biosphere – Life forms evolving to form sufficient feedback loops between them and geophysical processes
  • Immature technosphere –Technological activities like computers and AI are developing on the planet but are not yet sufficient to sustain interconnectedness with the physical environment or other systems.
  • Mature technosphere – The ultimate goal of planetary intelligence

Today, technology, computers, and artificial intelligence revolve around degrading the planet’s ecosystems. Hence, the Earth is still in an immature technosphere state. Unless we shift to the mature technosphere phase, the planet could suffer severe catastrophes.

By steering planetary intelligence towards the mature technosphere, scientists believe it can be the key to addressing global challenges like climate change, population growth, environmental degradation, the dominance of ultra-processed foods, and biodiversity losses. 

Planetary Intelligence and Value Systems

Amidst all these advancements in computers and artificial intelligence, there is still a need for human input in setting the correct value systems that guarantee the survival of planet Earth for another billion years. 

Moreover, a typical intelligence can run logical calculations faster than the human brain. Yet, it cannot come up with a right or wrong answer better than human beings can. Yet, the most important thing is not the technology that enables this global brain. Instead, it is how planetary intelligence amplifies value systems.

So, how does the human brain derive its value systems? 

planetary evolution image

The basis of world thinking is love. And, it needs to be the core value going into the global brain. Indeed, no intelligence can create rational value systems like the human brain. Hence, whenever the human brain feeds value systems into this global brain, our planet evolves for the better. For this, love needs to be the fundamental basis for planetary intelligence. 

Conclusion

The Earth’s intelligence is in the interconnectedness of life forms and the planet itself. We are now in an eruption of this power, referred to as planetary intelligence, on a technological level. It amounts to a transformation of the evolutionary process itself. And, just like the biosphere figured out how to exist on its own, the planetary mind should develop self-maintaining characteristics that address global challenges in this technosphere.

Earth Empath: 10 Signs You Could be One

Published

on

earth empath image

An empath easily absorbs both the emotional and physical energy of people and things around them. As an earth empath, you easily get intimate and attuned to the natural world and earth changes. We like to imagine that everyone is connected to the Earth in one way or another. However, as an earth empath, your connection and emotions to Earth are highly intense.

Simply put, if the Earth is happy, an earth empath is also pleased. If the Earth is sad or going through destruction, you can feel the emotional and sometimes physical burden.

So, how do you know you are an earth empath? 

10 Signs Of an Earth Empath

These are the ten subtle signs that you could be one.

#1: Your body changes are aligned to the environment

When an earth empath is in nature, they feel their best. You could be one if you feel energized while in the forest, close to a waterfall or ocean. Being out in nature uplifts an earth empath. On the contrary, an earth empath can also feel disconnected, sick, and down whenever they are in places such as polluted cities. The negative effect of human activities on the environment makes them sick to the core.

To an earth empath, an ideal holiday would not be to visit the large cities. They would rather be out in nature to recharge themselves.

#2: You are deeply connected to the Universe

connection with Earth image

All nature sounds around you catch your attention. You love waking up to birds chirping. You do not have to see the birds, but the sounds make you feel calm. It is more than just the perfect view of a waterfall. Yes, the perfect view gets you, but the sound of the waterfall is so calming, and you can feel connected. Simply put, you feel connected to the universe with all other senses.

#3: You are sensitive to weather changes

If your moods and spirits are severely affected by weather, you could be an earth empath. Many people are gloomy and inactive in winter; that is normal. However, as an earth empath, it is more than that. You feel the winter blues at a more severe intensity. Winter makes you sick, and you can’t help but think of summer all winter long. On the other hand, you feel joyful and energized during summer.

#4: You can foresee natural disasters

Before a natural disaster happens, something always seems off for an earth empath. You can feel it when a storm is about to happen. Some people can smell the pungent aroma of ozone in the wind before a storm. Others are so connected to the Earth that they will foresee an earthquake or a tsunami. Some earth empaths also report feeling an earth shift even in their sleep.

#5: You like absorbing Earth’s energy 

The atmosphere significantly affects the energy and mood of an earth empath. If you are in nature, you absorb the energy to recharge. You feel livelier because you can absorb nature’s energy. You would rather be out in nature than be at home or in the office. 

#6: You react to solar flare

A solar flare is a fierce burst of solar radiation that makes the sun shine brighter than usual. Solar flare impacts the Earth’s magnetic fields. Earthquakes, tornadoes, or volcanic activities often occur after a solar flare. Solar flares can be intense. As an earth empath, you may react to this harshness by experiencing:

  • Anxiety, 
  • Heart palpitations, 
  • Mood swings,
  • Depression,
  • Panic attacks,
  • Bipolar disorder.  

You react negatively because the Earth is also responding

#7: Earth heals you 

nature empath yoga image

As an earth empath, the Earth is your medicine. Simple activities in nature like watching the full moon or stars or even walking barefoot on the beach make you feel calm. The Earth makes you feel better mentally. Sometimes, earth empaths may realize that their connection with Earth has healed some of their physical pain. If Earth heals your mental and emotional pain, you could be an earth empath. 

#8: You love being around water bodies

Earth empaths love being in nature in general. However, being around water bodies is just so relaxing to you. An earth empath loves the sound of moving water. It makes them feel calm and safe. They also love to swim in natural water rather than in swimming pools. You could be an earth empath if you love lakes, waterfalls, streams, or oceans. 

#9: You can feel Earth’s pain 

Well, everyone gets sad when a natural disaster happens. However, such things are burdensome to an earth empath. Other things, such as human activities affecting the Earth, make you sick; for example, going to the ocean and finding it flooded with plastic is devastating for you. 

Moreover, you do as much as you can to try and save the Earth. It is not something that feels like a responsibility to you. It just comes naturally that you want to make the planet happy. 

For example, something like sustainable fashion comes naturally to you. And, it is not because every other influencer is talking about it. It is because you understand how fast fashion negatively affects the Earth.

#10: You have a strong urge to connect with Earth constantly

If you always take every opportunity to connect with Earth, you could be an empath. For instance, you would choose to work in nature over an office job to connect with the planet at every opportunity you get. If you work in an office or at home, you cannot stop thinking about when you will get out for a walk in the woods. The urge for you to connect with nature is just so strong. 

And whenever you get the opportunity to, you don’t hold back. For example, you will get off your shoes and walk on the grass. You will lie on the ground and enjoy the connection. 

The Bottom Line

An earth empath feels like themselves when they are out in nature. Being stuck out in structured walls makes them feel restless. The good thing about being an earth empath is the connection you get from it. Connecting with the planet comes with many benefits, including the healing it brings to our mental wellbeing. One sure way to know you are an earth empath is if you will grab any opportunity to be in and connect with nature.
