Babies from Around the World

This documentary will be released in April 2010. Here's a testimony that babies are babies all around the world. I love the end of this small preview and look forward to seeing this documentary!

This visually stunning new movie simultaneously follows four babies around the world - from first breath to first steps. From Mongolia to Namibia to San Francisco to Tokyo, Babies joyfully captures on film the earliest stages of the journey of humanity that are at once unique and universal to us all.

The Science of 350 - Global Warming

Scientists say that 350 parts per million CO2 in the atmosphere is the safe limit for humanity. Now we are at 387. Learn more about 350 - what it means, where it came from, and how to get there. Get involved, see the local cities and what they are doing...
I have wanted to put this post up for a while. I really admire the founders of this website and do hope parents and teachers will share it with their children. Next weekend Dec. 11-13 2009 during the Copenhagen climate conference there be many activities and discussions around the world to share our efforts to reduce the global warming. Several weeks ago I was in a local high school science class where they were learning about CO2. The bulletin boards had no mention - especially of this website.
Our school children can brainstorm how they may make an effort to effect a positive change to lower CO2.
Here are a few suggestions, please let us hear from you too!
  • Turn off unnecessary lights
  • Wash your clothes with a full wash
  • Walk to school if you live within a mile
  • Eat seasonal foods
  • Eat LOCAL when possible
Please visit the website see what's happening around the world and locally...
