Hva er KliKlima og klassisk brosjyre norskma & Klassisk

Klima & Klassisk er nyskapende formidling av moderne klimakunnskap hvor vitenbaserte fakta er rydret med levende klassisk musikk og visuelle mesterverk. Av og med Bente Lilja Bye og Sarah-Erin Hurtado Bye .

Hvorfor Klima & Klassisk

Det går knapt en dag uten at klima og klimaproblematikk blir diskutert; av politikere, i forskningsmiljøer og næringsliv, av forvaltningen og over middagsbord. Store internasjonale politiske møter avholdes og vitenskapen gjør stadige fremskritt. Vår innfallsvinkel og holdning il klima er i stadig endring. Utviklingen går så rivende raskt at det kan være vanskelig å følge med. I tillegg kommer det av og til motstridende informasjon fra både forskningsmiljø og politikere som kan gjøre noen og nhver forvirret. Basis kunnskap om sentrale begrep og prosesser innen klima problematikken gjør det lettere å manøvrere i dette landskapet. Klima & Klassisk gir kunnskap om grunnleggende klimabegreper og orskning, naturkatastrofer, energi og internasjonalt politisk rammeverk samt nyere tenkning om ilpasning og beredskap.

Halloween Colors

Halloween treeThis years fall foliage has been incredible. To celebrate Halloween I post a few of the pictures I've taken in Åsa where I live.

Halloween's origins date back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain (pronounced sow-in).

The Celts, who lived 2,000 years ago in the area that is now Ireland, the United Kingdom, and northern France, celebrated their new year on November 1. This day marked the end of summer and the harvest and the beginning of the dark, cold winter, a time of year that was often associated with human death. Celts believed that on the night before the new year, the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead became blurred. LeavesOn the night of October 31, they celebrated Samhain, when it was believed that the ghosts of the dead returned to earth. In addition to causing trouble and damaging crops, Celts thought that the presence of the otherworldly spirits made it easier for the Druids, or Celtic priests, to make predictions about the future. For a people entirely dependent on the volatile natural world, these prophecies were an important source of comfort and direction during the long, dark winter. (From History.com )

Biospheric Impressions
Written by Administrator   
Thursday, 25 September 2008

hepatica nobilisSeasonal changes in the biosphere are easy to observe. We all do it with various enthusiasm and intensity. Even completely urbanized human beings can't help noticing that the parks changes character according to seasons. Those of us living close to nature are embedded in the biosphere in a way that forces us to notice. We are all subject to biospheric impressions.

In fact, biospheric impression is just a fancy name on the appreciation of plants like noticing the first leaves in spring, smelling and picking flowers, gathering berries and enjoying a spectacular fall foliage.

I passionately gather biospheric impressions – I chase and collect them systematically and have developed certain rituals over the years. Obviously, discovering the first spring flowers is a major event as is finding wild strawberries.

I have made a collection of the 2008 biospheric impressions from Åsa. You can learn about the biosphere in Åsa, obviously, and I'll reveal my compulsive biospheric traditions, some of them bordering on fanaticism (which is growing very popular these days...).
