Interesting Predation Control Interview with Kim Hill

New Zealand scientist Rob Knight is Director of the Center for Microbiome Innovation, and Professor of Pediatrics and Professor of Computer Science & Engineering, at the University of California San Diego. He has been working since secondary school on ways to genetically engineer a pest species to produce all male offspring. With a range of collaborators, he has lodged three bids for research funding to pursue this idea, most recently a new proposal for the 2016 Smart Ideas round, which specified that proposals must contain risk.

ITS NOT EASY TO BE GREEN COMMUNITY GROUP

New Meetup group: It’s [not] Easy To Be Green is a community group for the environmentally aware and is designed to fascilitate sharing knowledge, time and resources to help members in their pursuit of a more eco-friendly and sustainable lifestyle. We welcome seasoned greenbees as well as those who are newly interested in this way of living. The group will meet once a month to discuss a dedicated topic. Additional events will be added as they arise.

 

This group supports:

- Reuse: Avoid single use items, find a reusable alternative. Repurpose items instead of throwing them away.

- Make / fix it: Make or grow your own instead of buying mass produced. Consider fixing before replacing.

- Swap it: Share resources and swap produce, goods, ideas, skills and knowledge.

- Buy responsibly: Buy from companies who are are cruelty free, environmentally conscious and follow sustainable practices. Support local farmers and industry.

- Off grid living: Generate your own power, collect your own water, manage your own household waste, grow your own food.

First meeting is at 4pm on Saturday, 25 June. To join or for more information visit the group meetup page: http://www.meetup.com/its-not-easy-to-be-green/
