This clip featuring iodine megacrystals takes a literal interpretation of the song's title

The video for When Saints Go Machine's "Iodine" goes deep underground to take a literal interpretation of its source material. Directors Kristian Nordentoft and William Reynish train their lens on pictures of actual iodine crystals, which are given depth thanks to a camera mapping technique.

When Humans Declared War on Fish

read
By Paul Greenberg and Boris Worm

ON Friday we humans observed V-E Day, the end to one part of a global catastrophe that cost the planet at least 60 million lives. But if we were fish, we would have marked the day differently — as the beginning of a campaign of violence against our taxonomic classes, one that has resulted in trillions of casualties.

Heidi Kooy already had a nice-sized, 100-square-foot vegetable garden in her San Francisco backyard when she decided to up the ante with a gaggle of hens and a couple of Nigerian dwarf dairy goats.

Whether renewables or fossil fuels, NIMBYism runs rampant when it comes to energy transmission infrastructure

The reasons for opposing TransCanada's Keystone XL proposal are as vast as the territory the pipeline aims to cover: climate change, a lack of proper environmental review, destruction of ecosystems, perpetuating our reliance on fossil fuels.

Why bother with an iPod when a Coby will do?

When I bought the first-generation iPhone, it took me all of four days to leave it in a cab, never to see it again. Meanwhile, the phone it was meant to replace, a not-remotely-smart Nokia brick dating from the previous century, had weathered a drop into a toilet and traveled with me to Europe and back -- twice. It still works. Sound familiar? Maybe not, but there's something to be said for......read more
