The Business of CO2 in Corporate America

An annual meeting of business and environmental leaders gathered at the Ritz Carlton in Laguna Niguel

Last week Fortune Magazine held a 3 day conference called GREEN BRAINSTORM on the gorgeous cliffs of Laguna Niguel and SHFT was there for the second year.

Ars Natura: 100 Girls, 100 Octopii

Zak Smith's Klimt-inspired graphic euphoria updates ‘The Kiss’ as a meeting of the species.

If you know anything about the bizarre art of Genki – the Japanese porn/film company that has made “eel porn” a household world in Tokyo (watch the show on if you don’t believe me) – the juxtaposition of naked ladies with tentacles is probably not so shocking in the work of Zak Smith.

Some dismaying news for our oceans today, when a bid to ban commercial trade of Atlantic bluefin tuna was shot down at UN endangered species meetings. The proposal, tabled by Monaco, was opposed by Japan, Canada, and many developing countries on the grounds it would devastate fishing economies.

The Domestic Effects of COP15

As the U.N. negotiations near completion in Copenhagen, American commitments begin to take shape.

Despite the likelihood that the 193 countries at the climate summit will leave Copenhagen with an agreement to finish their work either at a June meeting or at the next annual U.N. conference slated for next November in Mexico City, time is of the essence for President Obama and his congressional leaders to pass a domestic global warming bill.

Futuristic Forests

O2 Treehouse builds geodesic domes in tree canopies, where not even Bucky Fuller imagined them. Talk about space-age sustainability.

Founded by future-focused architect Dustin Feider, O2 Treehouse designs and builds geodesic domes for leafy habitats. The company is guided by principles of sustainability; domes are hung in the canopy using a cable suspension system, so not a single hole is drilled in the host tree during installation; also, because the polygon design distributes stress evenly across the entire structure, more
