Sea Shepherd Founder Captain Paul Watson has been under arrest in Frankfurt, Germany, and faces extradition to Costa Rica for an incident that occurred over a decade ago when he apprehended an illegal shark finning operation off the coast of Guatemala. While Captain Watson was “released” Monday from Frankfurt prison on 250,000 Euro bail on Monday, he remains under house arrest during which time the German courts will consider whatever documentation Costa Rica is able to produce in what appears to be a case motivated by political agenda.

Captain Watson’s arrest is based on allegations of violating “ships traffic” in Guatemalan waters, after a clash in 2002 between fishermen on the ship Varadero who were illegally poaching sharks

TRAVELLING ENVIRONMENTALLY CONSCIOUS

by kaiconfusion

– Some practical tips for a low impact environmentally conscious way of travelling –

One of the most important things in life is to live in a mindful, non destructive way towards the earth.
Since I am a traveler and we are living in an oh so much travelled world, in this post I want to pay particular
attention to that. I want to try to give some very few practical advises to keep our impact on nature and humans
as low as possible. I believe travelling itself can possibly reduce but also increase our impact on the environment.
As a lifestyle I like to be believe it can be a statement and a conscious respond to our consumerist life.
I will try to focus on solutions rather then mentioning the many ways we are polluting our planet and with that ourselves!

1. Travelling and mobility: Don’t fly!
Easier said then done. Just because flights are ridiculously cheap, doesn’t mean we can’t travel other ways.

Manufactured Landscapes

by kaiconfusion

Manufactured Landscapes (2006)

(http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/manufactured-landscapes/)

Manufactured Landscapes is the striking documentary on the world and work of renowned artist Edward Burtynsky. Internationally acclaimed for his large scale photographs of manufactured landscapes – quarries, recycling yards, factories, mines and dams – Burtynsky creates stunningly beautiful art from civilization’s materials and debris. The film follows him through China, as he shoots the evidence and effects of that country’s massive industrial revolution. With breathtaking sequences, such as the opening tracking shot through an almost endless factory, the filmmakers also extend the narratives of Burtynsky’s photographs, allowing us to meditate on our impact on the planet and witness both the epicenters of industrial endeavor and the dumping grounds of its waste. In the spirit of such environmentally enlightening sleeper-hit as An Inconvenient Truth, Manufactured Landscapes powerfully shifts our consciousness about the world and the way we live in it, without simplistic judgments or reductive resolutions.
