Unbroken Ground | A New Old Way to Grow Food

Unbroken Ground explains the critical role food will play in the next frontier of our efforts to solve the environmental crisis. It explores four areas of agriculture that aim to change our relationship to the land and oceans. Most of our food is produced using methods that reduce biodiversity, decimate soil and contribute to climate change. We believe our food can and should be a part of the solution to the environmental crisis – grown, harvested and produced in ways that restore our land, water and wildlife. The film tells the story of four groups that are pioneers in the fields of regenerative agriculture, regenerative grazing, diversified crop development and restorative fishing.

Modular Micro-Reactors – The Future of Nuclear Energy?

In this video Prof. Ruzic explains what modular micro-reactors are, and why they may be the future of nuclear power.  In particular, their ability to be a non-carbon source of process or district heat makes them an ideal replacement for fossil fuel plants.  In terms of electricity cost, they compete very well with diesel generation, and once mass produced could reach utility-scale prices. The micro-reactors are self-contained with their own containment, and passive safety features provided by the laws of physics.  All wastes generated are contained in the fuel itself which will last for 20 years.  At that point the whole reactor vessel is carted away, and a new one can be installed.
