Meta Perception: Human Interface
I sort of like this. Embedded AR video and audio projectors sense user gesture actions to determine desired activity, then project video and sound onto existing surfaces for a person to interact with. Pick up a banana and stick it by your ear and mouth, and the system will think you are trying to make a phone call (Banana Phone!), or you open an empty pizza box you are sitting in front of, and the system interprets that you need a computer terminal so a desktop and keyboard are projected. By applying the interfaces over existing objects, you reduce the need for interactive terminals, so this is a push towards sustainability, provided such a system is ubiquitous.

Vac from the Sea
Nice little PR campaign. But the seed for thought is, large tuna fishing fleets are increasingly unsustainable due to reduced catches. Retrofit the fleets for recovering plastic from the great pacific garbage gyre would be a huge PR move. I'm looking at you Japan.

ecovative design
Mycelium roots, if in a sealed package like a brick, can create building insulation with equal or better insulation properties than styrofoam or fiberglass. When unsealed, it is biodegradeable, though at a slower pace than what one would expect.

Tying up with Kodak to access their chemical reactor tech. Current process uses only 50% of the petroleum necessary to produce PPC precursor plastics. Aim is 100% production using only CO2.

For the europeans, this may actually be a viable option when carbon accounting for power must be taken into account when considering datacenter hosting.

Peak phosphorus: readings | Energy Bulletin
Peak phosphorus/phosphates. So the short story is we have potentially less than 60 years left of easy phosphates, then modern agriculture goes belly up because we can't make fertilizer. There are potential recovery methods treating sewage sludge (?biochar) but mostly it isn't really doable. Added factor is corn is a major offender.

june 2009 by asteroza - U.N. 'Climate Change' Plan Would Likely Shift Trillions to Form New World Economy - United Nations
Anybody seen much about this? Copenhagen Accord, the follow-on to the Kyoto Treaty, seems to be reviving up for some big requirements. Forcing the world to go green by sanctions and fines? We'll see. This swings both to the "UN is a bunch of blowhards and nothing will happen" end, and to the "OMG, new world order UN global government, shoot the blue helmets" end.
