    in Environment

    As we continue our special series called “The Neonicotinoid View”, host June Stoyer and  special guest co-host, Tom Theobald are joined by Dutch toxicologist, Dr Henk Tennekes to discuss his latest research, titled, “Impact of Systemic Insecticides on Organisms and Ecosystems” The research examines the negative impacts that systemic insecticides have on organisms, populations and ecosystems. The efficacy of these products in controlling the target pests is assumed and not dealt with here – only the effects on non-target organisms and communities are considered.

    Featured Guest: Dean Nasifoglu, President & CEO of Wedding Day Diamond

    in Business

    The vault is hosted by Lisa Bissell, President & CEO of Pure Grown Diamonds (www.puregrowndiamonds.com)

    Grown Diamonds—Eco Advantages
    In a recent environmental impact analysis, Frost & Sullivan (F&S) concludes the impact of the Pure Grown Process is seven times lower than Diamond Mining. 
    Mined diamonds disturb more land, produce more mineral waste, use more water, create more air emissions (carbon, NOx and SOx), use more energy, have more environmental incidents, result in more lost time injury (both in terms of frequency and severity) and have a higher occupational disease rate.  Based on their calculations, F&S further concludes that mined diamonds represent more than 7 times the level of impact as compared to grown diamonds.
     
    •           The analysis concludes grown diamonds use less than half the energy of mined diamonds.
    •           The Analysis concludes the grown process reduces the impact on the Earth by lower mineral wastes, water usage and air emissions by several magnitudes.
    •           F&S concludes the grown process reduces the impact on the Earth by lower mineral wastes, water usage and air emissions by several magnitudes.


    Pure Grown Diamonds Guarantee
    Pure Grown Diamonds represent more than a technological advancement. We represent an increase in confidence that the diamonds our customers adorn themselves with are guaranteed to come from a source free from conflict and a strain on fragile ecosystems.

    Sharon Weil w/ James Stark: Communities are Ecosystems

    in Lifestyle

    Sharon Weil and James Stark continue their conversation, this time talking about Communities. James views communities to be like ecosystems; dynamic, interdependent, and ever-changing in order to thrive. One of the challenges of any group, be it a village, neighborhood, an organization, or a personal relationship, is to allow for the intrinsic ongoing change that naturally occurs, while at the same time, finding agreement and common purpose. Nature has the best design.  Hear how he applies his creative knowing to building healthy communities.  www.regenerativedesign.org  www.passing4normal.com

    PROTECTING THE SACRED

    in Current Events

    Beginning in 2003, an important new international movement for the protection of sacred places began building momentum. At the Fifth World Parks Congress in South Africa in September 2003, delegates produced the Durban Recommendations on the Cultural and Spiritual Values of Protected Areas (see V.13 on pages 168-170), which called for the recognition of the spiritual values of protected areas around the world, and the full inclusion of indigenous communities and spiritual leaders in the management of sacred natural sites.


    Then, from May 30 to June 2, 2005, a major symposium convened in Tokyo, Japan: “Conserving Cultural and Biological Diversity: The Role of Sacred Natural Sites and Cultural Landscapes.” The discussions were aimed at protecting sacred places, and surrounding ecosystems, through existing international instruments, new laws and improved land management policies.


    A number of important documents have emerged as this historic cultural preservation movement continues to grow. Symposium participants in Japan drafted and approved the Tokyo Declaration, which urges the development and implementation of UNESCO and IUCN’s Draft Guidelines for the Conservation and Management of Sacred Natural Sites, and the dissemination of the Convention on Biodiversity’s Akwé: Kon (Akwé: Kon is pronounced agway-goo, and is a Mohawk term meaning “everything in creation.”) Guidelines for the conduct of cultural, environmental and social impact assessment regarding developments proposed to take place on, or which are likely to impact, sacred sites and the lands and waters traditionally occupied or used by indigenous and local communities.
