1. 50 cars or 1 coach?


    from acneadvertising Added 24.5K 54 3

    Just how much would CO2-emissions decrease if everyone took the coach instead of the car to the airport? That’s what this campaign illustrates. The biggest competitor to Flygbussarna Airport Coaches is the car. But the car is neither good for your wallet nor the environment. In fact, ground transportation to and from an airport accounts for about half the airports total carbon dioxide emissions. And, on average, a car on the road in Sweden has only 1,2 persons in it. The coach can take up to 60. So, you can say that there are 50 cars for every coach! So we created an installation by the the most heavily trafficated motorway (E4) to the biggest airport (Arlanda) in Sweden. The installation is a Flygbussarna coach built from 50 cars. A campaign site with a live camera from the site and a CO2-calculation, print, outdoor and banners all support the campaign.

          • We Must - Kinetic Typography (Carbon Cap Contest)


            from AaronJPatterson Added 5,715 69 3

            This is a project I worked on for the Carbon Cap Competition hosted by the Environmental Defense Action Fund at http://www.edf.org/competition. It's a kinetic typography piece focusing on basic fundamentals of typography and timing to the music and voice over track. I tried to make the color palette and the animated accents match the tone of each segment and provide the viewer with the the essence of the message. I'm very proud of the outcome, especially since I completed the majority of this project within 1 day. I did all the motion graphics and design while the audio was provided by the colleague of my friend who originally came to me for my help on this project. In the end this was not submitted to the competition due to the lack of a contract that led to many disagreements and the withholding of valuable information that I required to comfortably turn over my hard work. It's a shame and once again a reminder to always make a contract before you begin work, even if it's volunteer work for a friend of a friend and the deadline is a few days away. Always make a contract! It will save you lots of time and trouble in the long run. Software used: After Effects, Photoshop, Illustrator www.aaronjamespatterson.com

            • Better Future Fund - The Time is Now


              from VoVo Productions Added 5,624 8 0

              British Columbians already have a policy that is fighting climate change and helping to create secure and well-paying jobs: the carbon tax. With a few upgrades, it can be made even more effective, and it can also drive a potent investment engine that we’re calling the Better Future Fund. Here’s how: Close the Carbon Loophole The carbon tax is good policy but doesn’t make all polluters pay for emissions they create. There’s no incentive for companies to clean up their act. Closing this “carbon loophole” would have generated an extra $158 million in 2012/13. Every year we delay closing this loophole leaves more money on the table that could have helped us secure a better future for B.C. Keep on Growing Early indications suggest that the carbon tax—along with other climate change policies—is doing its job and reducing per-capita consumption of all fossil fuels. We urge our next provincial government to build on this success with additional gradual increases. We propose increasing the carbon tax by $5 per tonne of pollution, per year, for the next four years — the same amount that government increased the tax each year between 2008 and 2012. What will this mean at the pump? Each year until 2016, the carbon tax on a liter of gas would rise by slightly over a penny; by the end of this period, we would be paying an extra 4.4 cents per litre. By 2016, assuming we close the loophole and increase the carbon tax, we’ll be generating somewhere between $800 million and $1 billion of new revenue each year. This money forms the core of our proposed Better Future Fund. Invest In Solutions Carbon tax revenue is presently used to reduce personal and business income taxes and give tax credits to low-income British Columbians. We don’t think the next stage of the carbon tax needs to follow the same priority, and that a portion of future revenue should be directed into a Better Future Fund. Such a fund would be managed by a neutral third party, and audited by the Attorney General of British Columbia. Here’s how a Better Future Fund could reduce pollution, create jobs, and diversify the economy: Better Future Community Fund: $375 million per year To improve public transit service and support clean neighbourhood energy systems and other locally proposed green solutions in urban and rural communities. Projects would reduce pollution and make all our communities better and healthier places to live. Home and Business Energy Efficiency Improvement Fund: $25 million per year This amount would restore previous and successful provincial government energy efficiency program commitments. Our homes and businesses could be among the most energy efficient in the world. And households and businesses will save on their energy bills. Innovation & Clean Technology Fund: $50 million per year This will help make our industries and businesses global leaders in energy efficiency and innovative clean energy technology. We can create jobs and diversify the economy. The province’s clean-tech sector now employs about 8,400 people in well-paid jobs, and is well positioned to grow. The above investments allocate only half of the potential new revenue, leaving additional funds to protect low-income British Columbians, cut taxes in other areas, or protect trade-exposed sectors. Sounds like a plan. www.betterfuturefund.ca

                Living Climate Change Video Challenge: Winner for the 18 and over category By Andrea Schöllgen, Taina Flink, Lotta Skoog, Bart van Dam, and Elio Sjak-Shie livingclimatechange.com/videochallenge/ Video description: This is a video about what it can look like if we succeed in making our lives more sustainable by reducing the impact of climate change through changing our habits around food. We show how the future could look like if we start to change today. If we start to eat more local and seasonal food and less meat we will reduce greenhouse gas emissions significantly. In addition to this we believe that we need to pay more attention to nutrient loops in the future. In the urban gardens of the future there is a need for nutrients and by using local compost it is possible to create a local nutrient loop that is energy efficient and thus emits less greenhouse gases. As well as using something that would otherwise be wasted, we also reduce the use for artificial fertilizers, which means less energy usage and less greenhouse gas emissions. But there will be trade-offs as well. We cannot eat as much meat as we might want to since it will have to be rationed.

                  Client: EcoChain Commisioned by: EcoChain (http://www.ecochain.com) Featured on TEDxHaarlem! Crooked Line was asked to create a video explaining the emissions software developed by Eco Chain. The great thing about the software is that you can link up an entire supplychain through the software and calculate the footprint for a single product. From basic resource to final product. When consumers and governments pick products based on their footprint more and more, this kind of information becomes critical in finding ways to reduce that footprint. The result is an extra emphasis on sustainability and that is good for all of us!
