Australia has for years been battling to keep the Great Barrier Reef off the “in danger” list. On June 22, 2021, a UN committee recommended that the GBR should be added to a list of “in danger” World Heritage Sites.

The #GBR is 2,300 km long and extends across 346,000 sq. km. area, hosting an assemblage of fishes and invertebrates in the reefs, sharks, rays, anemones and myriad other forms all of which need a delicate ecological balance to thrive.

#GBR won a place on the World Heritage List under the World Heritage Convention, 1972, as it has outstanding universal value. As a fabled wonder of the natural world, Australia’s GBR and its diversity of #marine life found a place on UNESCO’s World Heritage List in 1981.

We’re delighted to open the #ATIBoeingAccelerator Demo Day with an introduction from Sir Martin Donnelly, President @BoeingEurope and MD @BoeingUK. It’s been incredible to work with Boeing and have their support for our 10 #startups creating #sustainability-enabling #tech ✈️ Image
Thank you Minister Paul Scully @scullyp @beisgovuk for joining our Cohort Two Demo Day! "The #ATIBoeingAccelerator is a fantastic resource, providing world-class #startups with great opportunities to innovate and grow in the UK." Image
"Despite the challenges the sector faces, we must continue to find areas of #innovation as the world slowly but surely recovers from the pandemic." It's fantastic to have Nour Eid @UKAeroInstitute support us at the #ATIBoeingAccelerator and provide his insights into #aerospace Image

@AP No one is facing up to the scale of the demand crash.

We normally produce 80-million+ barrels a day, and half the world (the rich half, mostly) is under lockdown.

Do we need 3/4 of the oil we did? 1/2? 1/4?

20-million+, 40-million+ or 60-million+ barrels/day less?
@AP Does the lockdown end in several months?

A year or more from now, when we (hopefully) have a vaccine?

How much will our consumption habits have changed by then?

How much renewable power will have been installed?

How many vehicles will be hybrid or electric?
@AP How long will it take to recover from what is effectively a depression?

Then look at the underlying math for oil coming out of this era, which is even worse.

@business .@business Very useful for Russia, Iran and the Saudi's Aramco IPO.

But just pointing out we could dump algae in biodigesters, produce unlimited natural gas & recycle the waste on 6/23/14 preceded oil prices peaking 6/24/14 & plummeting by 75%.
@business .@business To sum up:
Algae rotting in biodigesters can make all the methane (natural gas) that you need.

Conventional GTL (gas-to-liquid) technology converts NG to oil at $25/barrel *without* pricing in de facto free energy or feedstocks.

@business .@business A biodigester is a covered trench lined with block, w/a slurry of waste & water decomposing inside. Not exactly the most difficulty engineering feat if you have the lined hole and a sheet of plastic.

Today marks what would have been the 100th birthday of noted phycologist Dr. Isabella Aiona Abbott.

She was the first Native Hawai’ian woman to earn a PhD in science and became a renowned expert on Pacific #algae.
Known as the "First Lady of Limu*", Abbott first started learning about edible seaweeds from her mother and spent hours collecting them from the beaches of Maui.

She even wrote a book about how to cook seaweeds!

*limu is Hawaiian for seaweed
She began teaching classes at Stanford’s Hopkins Marine Station in 1960.

She then went on to become the first female full professor in Stanford’s biology department, as well as the first minority full professor in 1972.
