      GRANTED won "Best Environmental Short" - Bay Area Women in Film and Media (BAWIFM) Short Film Festival 2013. The idea for this one minute video comes from something my mom told me when I was a child, that I never forgot and which is still true today. Following an interesting comment I received, I would like to say that to make this video, I followed the different people of my family and some friends as they were really using the water in their daily tasks. I did not ask them to re-do something, there was only one take. No water was wasted in the making of the video!

        What happens to an impoverished developing nation town when you flood it with 20,000 bicycles? You lift three times that number of people out of poverty. Pedals for Progress and founder David Schweidenback have been shipping used American bicycles to Rivas, Nicaragua for the last two decades and the transformation has been incredible. http://thebicyclecityfilm.com/ https://twitter.com/thebicyclecity http://www.facebook.com/TheBicycleCity

                    This video is based on the map experiments I have done to illustrate the Anthropocene. It shows several features of our global civilization: cities, built environment, transmission lines, pipelines, main paved and unpaved roads and railways. More maps can be found here, including some with airline routes, shipping lanes and submarine cables: http://www.globaia.org/en/anthropocene/

                      from WelcomeAnthropocene Added 104K 341 12

                      Water in the Anthropocene is a 3-minute film charting the global impact of humans on the water cycle. Evidence is growing that our global footprint is now so significant we have driven Earth into a new geological epoch — the Anthropocene. Human activities such as damming and agriculture are changing the global water cycle in significant ways. The data visualisation was commissioned by the Global Water Systems Project for a major international conference (Water in the Anthropocene, Bonn, Germany, 21-24 May, 2013). http://conference2013.gwsp.org As datasets build upon one another, the film charts Earth's changing global water cycle, why it is changing, and what this means for the future. The vertical spikes that appear in the film represent the 48,000 large dams that have been built. The film was produced by Globaïa and the International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme. www.globaia.org // www.igbp.net The film is part of the first website on the concept of humans as a geological force, www.anthropocene.info Datasets: - Base map: NASA, Natural Earth, Globaïa - Total precipitation: GEOS-5 — http://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/vis/a030000/a030000/a030017/index.html - Ocean currents: OSCAR — http://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/vis/a000000/a003900/a003958/index.html - Dams & Reservoir capacity: GRanD — http://sedac.ciesin.columbia.edu/data/set/grand-v1-dams-rev01 - Cities: VIIRS 2012 — http://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/dmsp/download.html - Cropland (North America): Agriculture Lands 2000 — http://www.earthstat.org - Anthroposphere: Several sources, see Cartography of the Anthropocene on Globaïa's website — http://www.globaia.org - Sea ice: Sea Ice for Science on a Sphere — http://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/vis/a000000/a003500/a003579/index.html - Rivers: NGIA vMAP — http://geoengine.nga.mil/geospatial/SW_TOOLS/NIMAMUSE/webinter/vmap0_legend.html - Lakes: Global Lakes and Wetlands Database — http://gcmd.nasa.gov/records/GCMD_GLWD.html - Human Water Security Index: Adjusted HWS Threat — http://www.riverthreat.net Music Earlyguard — http://earlyguard.bandcamp.com Jana Winderen — http://www.janawinderen.com Produced for the Global Water Systems Project (GWSP) GWSP is sponsored by: DIVERSITAS International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme International Human Dimensions Programme World Climate Research Programme Scientific sponsors of the Welcome to the Anthropocene website: CSIRO International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme Stockholm Resilience Centre Future Earth
