Weather & Climate Change in black and white

weather / climate change

when people grumble about the weather here in Newfoundland and Labrador, as they sometimes do, the standard conclusion (redemption?) is ‘we don’t live here for the weather’.

talk of global warming and climate change can seem like a problem far far away.  climate change is normal, right?  hot days in Newfoundland and Labrador are good, right?  icebergs are fabulous for tourism, right?   yes yes yes, but there is the biggest kind of a butt to it:  the hottting up too fast is not going to go well for us in the big picture.  not well at all.

This vid isn’t about doom, it’s about understanding what is happening all around us. music and animation by Jeff Smyth, produced by David Maher, voice of Megan Stuckless (Senior Public Education and Outreach Officer of Conservation Corps NL).  Neat, sweet in black and white.  (first of a series – keep an eye out for the next vid!).

in July and August 2014 thegreenrock.ca Conservation Corps Green Team – Tamara Segura, Chris Ball, David Maher and Team Lead Jeff Smyth talked and taped, walked in the sun, swung on the swings, got out there and got inspired by the great green good going on in the Northeast Avalon.  Over the coming months their work will be released on thegreenrock.ca.

need a bike? bikeshare!

common topic of conversation – traffic.  car transit in st. john’s seems slower than it ever has been.  but that is just one reason to take the bike.  health, pollution, and putting the bike lanes to use are others!

if you don’t have a bike, or if yours needs a bit of fixing, you can still hit the road.

BIKESHARE is a non-profit organization that supports cycling.  thegreenrock.ca CCNL Green team caught up with Joseph Bautista of Bikeshare, who shares the points and purpose of the organization.  based at Memorial University Bikeshare is one of the many beautiful threads in the fabric of sustainability in St. John’s. it operates from 4 to 7 pm Sundays and 5 to 7 pm  Tuesdays in EN 1015-E – check facebook for current events.

soothing sounds by Chris Ball, directed by David Maher and Tamara Segura, videography and editing by Jeff Smyth.

Video

today is fall, and time for the work done in summer 2014 by the Conservation Corps NL thegreenrock.ca Green Team to roll out!

in July and August the gang of four – Tamara Segura, Chris Ball, David Maher and Team Lead Jeff Smyth talked and taped, walked in the sun, swung on the swings, got out there and got inspired by the great green good going on in the Northeast Avalon.  Over the coming months their work will be released on thegreenrock.ca.

in this vid join David as he talks the talk and walks the walk in the old east end of St. John’s.  he’s live about Green Tips – simple to make green easy.  watch as he whips out the water bottle, and where does that Metrobus pass come from?  also notice the beaming sun of St. John’s in July.  original guitar music by Chris, Tamara is filming, and Jeff directed and produced.

Watch. Like. Share.  Sustain.

Jimmy Hikes! – trails in and around St. John’s

it’s spring-ish ~ crocuses peeking up, snow unshoveled and gone, and the icebergs cometh! great time to hit the trails.  during the summer of 2011 thegreenrock.ca Conservation Corps Green Team took to the hills and found that there is much to be got from wandering, strolling and striding the hills of the East Coast Trails.

check it out – add colour to spring!   find out more at http://eastcoasttrail.ca/
