    Video I shot on a Canon 5D Mark ii for a university project. The concept is environmental degradation and I did it in the form of an advertising kind of thing, sort of advertising green energy. Filmed my wife and daughter in front of BP petrol distribution plant and Fauly power station in contrast to filming them in front of a wind turbine. The video is all mine but the audio is not, I am using it only for educational purposes.

    • Verizon Announces Aggressive Sustainability Goal


      from 3BL Media / Added

      (3BL Media) New York, NY – March 19, 2012 – Verizon announced today that it will cut its CO2 intensity in half by 2020, as part of the company’s broad sustainability efforts. Sustainability is a key aspect of the company’s new strategy for delivering shareholder value. The other aspects are developing marketplace solutions to address social issues like health care and energy, and aligning the company’s philanthropic work with these issues to maximize community benefits. “This is the era of big data,” said Verizon Chairman and CEO Lowell McAdam. “Our business continues to grow at a rapid pace, but we’re committed to innovating our way to growing responsibly by becoming more energy efficient, even as our business expands.” McAdam also took part in a “CEO Sit-Down” with Bloomberg TV correspondent Alix Steel today at the fifth annual Bloomberg New Energy Finance Summit. Carbon intensity – the amount of energy needed to move data across Verizon’s network -- is a measurement of energy efficiency. It is improved by reducing the absolute amount of energy and by moving more data with the same unit of energy. Verizon is using its 2009 carbon intensity level as the benchmark for the company’s 50 percent reduction by 2020. To reinforce its commitment to its new shareholder-value strategy, the company today issued its first combined annual and corporate responsibility report, which is available at http://responsibility.verizon.com. Fueling Social Innovation Verizon believes that creating healthy, sustainable communities is the surest path to creating a healthy and sustainable business. “For Verizon, our most exciting growth opportunities occur where business and social interests intersect,” McAdam said in a shareowners letter in the report. “As we look at how technology is transforming business and society, we see expanding opportunities ahead for us to use our unique network platforms to make a difference in the world. We believe we can become an even bigger force for good in the world – and, in doing so, extend our legacy of growth and shareowner value for many years to come.” By focusing on mobility, broadband and global connectivity, Verizon is breaking down old technology barriers and empowering businesses and communities. Verizon’s annual report describes the following initiatives: Removing Barriers to Health Care Some 200,000 Americans die every year from treatable chronic disease, many because they lack ready access to medical care due to barriers of distance, time or availability of doctors and nurses. In one example of how Verizon is using 4G LTE technology to overcome these barriers, the company is working with health insurance provider WellPoint to change the model for delivering patient services via secure videoconferencing. WellPoint subscribers will soon be able to use their smartphones and tablets to consult with nurse managers for help in managing chronic conditions. Through a grant from the Verizon Foundation, the University of Virginia launched its first telehealth nursing program to train medical personnel at the school’s Wise County campus on the use of emerging telehealth technologies to improve health care access and services in rural regions of the state. (NOTE: To view a video of just some of the ways that Verizon is transforming the way health care is delivered, visit: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Ck6XX0qeNc.) Making Education Accessible Using technology to prepare students for success in the 21st century has long been a focus of the Verizon Foundation. Rapid deployment of 4G LTE mobile networks will be a game-changer in education, as it enables the adaptation of various technologies in the education setting. At St. Phillips Academy in Newark, N.J., for example, a VGo telepresence robot helps solve several classroom challenges including helping a homebound student undergoing medical treatments stay involved with the class. And Verizon’s award-winning educational website, Thinkfinity.org, will evolve into more than just one of the most popular Web resources for teachers. The foundation is working to develop an integrated solution that brings education to life on smartphones and tablets.

                  Events in the Middle East last year caused panic as oil supplies were threatened, while the spectre of nuclear meltdown at Fukushima offered a grim reminder of the risks posed by moving beyond ‘dirty’ fossil fuels. With renewable energy still a long way from being able to meet the shortfall, many gloomily predict a future of brownouts, deep-sea drilling disasters and even bitter resource wars. But others see shale gas and the ‘fracking’ process as a reason for hope. What role can innovation play in keeping the lights on? Speakers include Professor Gordon MacKerron, director of Science and Technology Policy Research, University of Sussex; Tanya Morrison, government relations manager, climate change, Shell International; James Woudhuysen, professor of forecasting and innovation, De Montfort University.
