Transcript: Sustainability Emmy Humanity's population has been skyrocketing, and about about to hit 8 Billion. As a result, Earth is heating up drastically. Introduction Introduction Click here Mind-boggling Facts In 2018, the U.S. used more than 10 trillion cubic feet of natural gas. To give some light to this absurdly large number, here are some facts to help you visualize just how disgustingly much that is. https://www.eia.gov/totalenergy/data/monthly/pdf/sec7_9.pdf This is a million dollars in $100 bills: This one's really important This is just one trillion dollars in $100 bills: This is the same man ten trillion is ten times that --If 10 trillion pennies were stacked on each other, it would be the same distance as taking 15 round trips to the moon and back example --if 10 trillion dollars were to be dolled out evenly to everyone in the U.S. every single person would get about $30,000 example Solutions Solutions People think they can change this tragic trajectory through things like: sustainable energy, electric cars, and tree planting Architects are designing, and trying to create, sustainable cities. These cities run on renewable energy. example here are renderings of these cities Cities have been getting greener, by using renewable energy. Here are some of the greenest cities, and what makes them so great. example This city is making fuel from sewage and household waste, through bio-fuel plants. Stockholm Stockholm, Sweden It is also using building's waste heat to heat homes in the city Here are some amazing facts about this eco-friendly city Copenhagen Copenhagen, Denmark The number of bikes outnumber the cars fact The buildings are incorporating green roofs, for co2 reduction, and food. fact By the end of 2019, all buses will make the shift to electric engines fact There is a huge array of wind farms fact Kashyap Vyas. (2018, August 2). These 11 eco-friendly cities around the world set an example of how humans and nature can co-exist in harmony. Retrieved September 16, 2019, from Interestingengineering.com website: https://interestingengineering.com/11-most-eco-friendly-cities-of-the-world ‌ "11 Most eco-friendly cities of the world" Source This city has been dubbed "the city of bikes", and not without reason. Amsterdam Amsterdam, Netherlands There are more bikes than people fact city clothes are made of eco-friendly material fact There is more than 300 charging stations just in the city fact Source "11 Most eco-friendly cities of the world" Kashyap Vyas.

If we do all we can, could we really have a green planet? 1620 This is what our oceans will look like if we don't do anything to stop climate change What would Earth look like This is what all of our coral reefs will look like if we stop Climate Change. Reverse NASA says yes More on <<-- "if we stopped emitting greenhouse gases today, global warming would continue to happen for at least several more decades" Fact Once it does, however, Earth will be clean. This is because Earth will take a while to respond to this. reason

It promises 15 sustainable designers from around the world, becoming the first 100 percent sustainable showcase of its kind. Celebrating 30 brands that are near 100 percent sustainable. The designers work together and will reuse material to create their entire collection. 5 Methods of Sustainability Methods of Sustainability Be water wise 1 As water bottles are harmful to animal life, we need to reduce the amount of water bottles we use singularly and then dispose of and rather reuse metal or other sustainable materials for drink bottles and keep them. Pay attention to labels Choose fair trade certified goods when possible to support companies that are dedicated to sustainable production 2 Drive less to reduce your carbon foot print and emit less green house gases 3 Due to plastic never going away, we must try to achieve the use of 0 plastics in our events. 4 Replace plastic Wooden cutlery is a good example of how to replace plastics as they provide environmental, social and economical benefits for the planet. They are 100% compostable and they do not use any harmful chemicals to make or be destroyed 5 Overall Resource Usage Overall - BYO Bottles for water and provide water fountains - Have many bins for different services (recycling, compost etc) - recycled materials to make cutlery, plates, straws etc i.e bamboo, wood, cardboard, paper etc. - post and pre-event emails on the success of the event rather than paper and letters - Fundraiser to promote and educate on sustainability

Transcript: You can collect rainwater through the use of cisterns, underground tanks, ponds, or rain barrels. You can use this water for drinking (if filtered), irrigation, or other non-potable water uses. You can also collect rainwater from your roof, plaza, or create pervious paving areas. Native plants are important when planning the landscaping because they require little to no irrigation or maintenance. It is also important where you position the plants, especially trees. You want to plant deciduous trees in proper places, so that in the summer it’s leaves hide the sun from coming into the windows, creating a cooler interior atmosphere. However, in the winter, the leaves are lost so the sun can penetrate through the limbs and warm the house. Vegetative roofs are a great way to add plant life as well as insulation to a roof. Photovoltaic roofs are also great, because they produce energy for the house. The only problem is they are expensive and take so much energy to make that it may not be worth it. The technology needs a lot of improvement until it may be worth spending all the money on it. Other roof options just depend on where you are living. In Chico there is little to no snow, so a high pitch roof is not necessary, but there is a lot of rainfall, so a pitch roof is nice. Low flow shower heads, dual-flush toilets, low flow faucets, composting toilet, and drip irrigation are ways to conserve water. These are fixtures that you can put in your home for a fairly small price to the water conservation you will get out of them. The best orientation for a building is southwest. This way the interior of the house receives the best amount of light during the right months. In the winter the sun is lower and the way it moves across the sky allows a lot of natural sunlight into the house for warmth and color. In the hot summer months, the sun is high and behind the house so it is cooler inside the house. Using windows, clerestories, and skylights are effective ways to add natural light throughout the interior. Window position is important. Having minimal windows on the polar side and maximum windows on the equatorial side is a good way to get the best light. Proper ventilation is important for a great indoor atmosphere. This can be done through a complete home fan. Basically when turned on it sucks up all the “old” air from the house and replaces it with new. Windows also help a lot with ventilation, but it is important for them to be double paned in order to protect from the outside elements. Awnings are also important in order to protect from the sun. Adobe is a very eco-friendly option when considering the wall system of a building. It is made up of mud and straw and creates excellent insulation. However, adobe does not allow much fluctuation if the owner plans to remodel or change electrical work. Another great option is using a typical 2x4 stud technique, but with bamboo studs. Bamboo is a very eco-friendly resource. Instead of using typical fiberglass insulation, they now make insulation out of recycled blue jeans, which allows for an eco-friendly skeleton. Reduce off gassing from carpet, furniture, paints, cleaning products, etc. Reduce it by having ventilation from mechanical and/or active sources. Monitor carbon dioxide emissions through detectors and use high efficiency air filters. Use products from Green Seal, Greenguard, and Green Carpet Co. and before occupancy, have a building flush-out. Provide proper ventilation A good foundation is the basis to a strong house. A slab is ideal because it creates a strong hold and does not allow air under the house, so the house stays more insulated. Use recycled or reused materials when building a new building. Reduce the amount of unused space such as hallways, and provide space that can serve multiple functions for possible reuse of the building.

Transcript: Summary of the Future In the distant future, 2105, civilization has come to near extinction more than enough times. With the energy crisis worsening through the years, mankind has struggled to find a renewable and sustainable energy source. Not only that, but an outbreak took place in the year 2020. The outbreak now known as the, "Incident" nearly wiped out the entire Earth of humans. The outbreak was caused by cordyceps- a fungus that releases spores that can travel by air meaning it can stick to dust particles and infect multiple people at once. Once infected the cordyceps travels to the brain and then quite literally turns the victim into a zombified version of them self. The recipient then dies and releases more spores causing a never ending cycle. Once only affecting ants, the cordyceps have adapted and evolved to be able to infect any living creature. Even in light of this virus, mankind has been able to take back the Earth and call it home once more.
