Loading Coal in Indonesia
 
00:35
'Coal' is one of the foremost resource for power generation. In 2017, 38% of the world's electricity came from coal, while in countries like India about 71% of total electricity generated was from coal. Switching to renewable resources entirely for energy needs will take time and till then, coal needs to be mined, handled, transported and utilized very efficiently and in an eco-friendly manner. BainBridge Navigation is one of the major carriers of coal. Here is one of the video of our vessel loading steam coal in Indonesian waters, wonderful sight of how the cargo is shipped from the local barges to ship’s holds using vessel’s cranes and grabs.

Economy of Indonesia
 
38:17
Indonesia has the largest economy in Southeast Asia and is one of the emerging market economies of the world. The country is also a member of G-20 major economies and classified as a newly industrialized country. It has a market economy in which the government plays a significant role through ownership of state-owned enterprises (the central government owns 141 enterprises) and the administration of prices of a range of basic goods including fuel, rice, and electricity. In the aftermath of the financial and economic crisis that began in mid-1997 the government took custody of a significant portion of private sector assets through acquisition of nonperforming bank loans and corporate assets through the debt restructuring process. Since 1999 the economy has recovered and growth has accelerated to over 4%-6% in recent years. Indonesia regained its investment grade rating from Fitch Rating in late 2011, and from Moody's Rating in early 2012, after losing its investment grade rating in December 1997 at the onset of the Asian financial crisis which Indonesia spent more than Rp450 trillion ($50 billion) to bail out lenders from banks. Fitch raised Indonesia's long-term and local currency debt rating to BBB- from BB+ with both ratings is stable. Fitch also predicted that economy will grow at least 6.0% on average per year through 2013, despite a less conducive global economic climate. Moody’s raised Indonesia's foreign and local currency bond ratings to Baa3 from Ba1 with a stable outlook. In the year 2012, Indonesia edged out India to emerge as second fastest G-20 major economy just behind China. This video is targeted to blind users.

Arsip Sejarah - Berdirinya PT Freeport Indonesia Tahun 1981
 
36:51
PT Freeport Indonesia adalah sebuah perusahaan afiliasi dari Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold Inc.. PT Freeport Indonesia menambang, memproses dan melakukan eksplorasi terhadap bijih yang mengandung tembaga, emas, dan perak. Beroperasi di daerah dataran tinggi Tembagapura, Kabupaten Mimika, Provinsi Papua, Indonesia. Freeport Indonesia memasarkan konsentrat yang mengandung tembaga, emas dan perak ke seluruh penjuru dunia. Sejarah: Awal mula PT Freeport Indonesia berdiri, sesungguhnya terdapat kisah perjalanan yang unik untuk diketahui. Pada tahun 1904-1905 suatu lembaga swasta dari Belanda Koninklijke Nederlandsche Aardrijkskundig Genootschap (KNAG) yakni Lembaga Geografi Kerajaan Belanda, menyelenggarakan suatu ekspedisi ke Papua Barat Daya yang tujuan utamanya adalah mengunjungi Pegunungan Salju yang konon kabarnya ada di Tanah Papua. Catatan pertama tentang pegunungan salju ini adalah dari Kapten Johan Carstensz yang dalam perjalanan dengan dua kapalnya Aernem dan Pera ke “selatan” pada tahun 1623 di perairan sebelah selatan Tanah Papua, tiba-tiba jauh di - pedalaman melihat kilauan salju dan mencatat di dalam buku hariannya pada tanggal 16 Februari 1623 tentang suatu pegungungan yang “teramat tingginya” yang pada bagian-bagiannya tertutup oleh salju. –Catatan Carsztensz ini menjadi cemoohan kawan-kawannya yang menganggap Carstensz hanya berkhayal. Walaupun ekspedisi pertama KNAG tersebut tidak berhasil menemukan gunung es yang disebut-sebut dalam catatan harian Kapten Carstensz, inilah cikal bakal perhatian besar Belanda terhadap daerah Papua. Peta wilayah Papua pertama kali dibuat dari hasil ekspedisi militer ke daerah ini pada tahun 1907 hingga 1915. Ekspedisi-ekspedisi militer ini kemudian membangkitkan hasrat para ilmuwan sipil untuk mendaki dan mencapai pegunungan salju. Beberapa ekspedisi Belanda yang terkenal dipimpin oleh Dr. HA.Lorentz dan Kapten A. Franzen Henderschee. Semua dilakukan dengan sasaran untuk mencapai puncak Wilhelmina (Puncak Sudirman sekarang) pada ketinggian 4,750 meter. Nama Lorentz belakangan diabadikan untuk nama Taman Nasional Lorentz di wilayah suku Asmat di pantai selatan. Pada pertengahan tahun 1930, dua pemuda Belanda Colijn dan Dozy, keduanya adalah pegawai perusahaan minyak NNGPM yang merencanakan pelaksanaan cita-cita mereka untuk mencapai puncak Cartensz. Petualangan mereka kemudian menjadi langkah pertama bagi pembukaan pertambangan di Tanah Papua empat puluh tahun kemudian. Pada tahun 1936, Jean Jacques Dozy menemukan cadangan Ertsberg atau disebut gunung bijih, lalu data mengenai batuan ini dibawa ke Belanda. Setelah sekian lama bertemulah seorang Jan Van Gruisen – Managing Director perusahaan Oost Maatchappij, yang mengeksploitasi batu bara di Kalimantan Timur dan Sulawesi Tengggara dengan kawan lamanya Forbes Wilson, seorang kepala eksplorasi pada perusahaan Freeport Sulphur Company yang operasi utamanya ketika itu adalah menambang belerang di bawah dasar laut. Kemudian Van Gruisen berhasil meyakinkan Wilson untuk mendanai ekspedisi ke gunung bijih serta mengambil contoh bebatuan dan menganalisisnya serta melakukan penilaian. Pada awal periode pemerintahan Soeharto, pemerintah mengambil kebijakan untuk segera melakukan berbagai langkah nyata demi meningkatkan pembanguan ekonomi. Namun dengan kondisi ekonomi nasional yang terbatas setelah penggantian kekuasaan, pemerintah segera mengambil langkah strategis dengan mengeluarkan Undang-undang Modal Asing (UU No. 1 Tahun 1967). Pimpinan tertinggi Freeport pada masa itu yang bernama Langbourne Williams melihat peluang untuk meneruskan proyek Ertsberg. Dia bertemu Julius Tahija yang pada zaman Presiden Soekarno memimpin perusahaan Texaco dan dilanjutkan pertemuan dengan Jenderal Ibnu Sutowo, yang pada saat itu menjabat sebagai Menteri Pertambangan dan Perminyakan Indonesia. Inti dalam pertemuan tersebut adalah permohonan agar Freeport dapat meneruskan proyek Ertsberg. Akhirnya dari hasil pertemuan demi pertemuan yang panjang Freeport mendapatkan izin dari pemerintah untuk meneruskan proyek tersebut pada tahun 1967. Itulah Kontrak Karya Pertama Freeport (KK-I). Kontrak karya tersebut merupakan bahan promosi yang dibawa Julius Tahija untuk memperkenalkan Indonesia ke luar negeri dan misi pertamanya adalah mempromosikan Kebijakan Penanaman Modal Asing ke Australia. Sebelum 1967 wilayah Timika adalah hutan belantara. Pada awal Freeport mulai beroperasi, banyak penduduk yang pada awalnya berpencar-pencar mulai masuk ke wilayah sekitar tambang Freeport sehingga pertumbuhan penduduk di Timika meningkat. Tahun 1970 pemerintah dan Freeport secara bersama-sama membangun rumah-rumah penduduk yang layak di jalan Kamuki. Kemudian dibangun juga perumahan penduduk di sekitar selatan Bandar Udara yang sekarang menjadi Kota Timika. Selengkapnya: https://id.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freeport_Indonesia

Unanticipated Future Change in the Land and Ocean Biosphere
 
01:01:12
Professor James Randerson studies the global carbon cycle. He is known for advancing our understanding of the role of fires in the Earth System. In his work, he combines satellite observations with climate models to explore changes in the biosphere. In 2003, Randerson moved to UC Irvine where he now holds the position of Ralph J. and Carol M. Cicerone Professor of Earth System Science. Carbon cycle feedbacks have the potential to accelerate the build up of atmospheric carbon dioxide, making it more difficult to stabilize the climate system. In his talk, Professor Randerson will describe several terrestrial carbon cycle feedback mechanisms involving lightning, wildfires and sea level rise that are likely to become increasingly important over a period of decades to centuries. Within the oceans, Professor Randerson will discuss how changes in sea ice cover around Antarctica may trigger sustained losses of global ocean productivity and fisheries for more than a millennium. This is a recording of a presentation organized by NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory's Center for Climate Sciences as part of its Distinguished Climate Lectures on May 15, 2018 in Pasadena, Calif. https://climatesciences.jpl.nasa.gov

Director: Yann Arthus-Bertrand Producer: Luc Besson, Denis Carot Genre: Documentary / World Cinema Country: France Language: English / AR / CH / DE / EN / ES / FR / HI / IT / JP / PT / RO / RU subtitles The Earth is what we all have in common! Internationally renowned photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand makes his feature directorial debut with this environmentally conscious documentary produced by Luc Besson, and narrated by Glenn Close. Shot in 54 countries and 120 locations over 217 days, Home presents the many wonders of planet Earth from an entirely aerial perspective. As such, we are afforded the unique opportunity to witness our changing environment from an entirely new vantage point. In our 200,000 years on Earth, humanity has hopelessly upset Mother Nature's delicate balance. Some experts claim that we have less than ten years to change our patterns of consumption and reverse the trend before the damage is irreversible. Produced to inspire action and encourage thoughtful debate, Home poses the prospect that unless we act quickly, we risk losing the only home we may ever have.

America's Climate Change Future – Session 4: Pushing against climate denial and defending science
 
01:31:05
America's Climate Change Future: Housing Markets, Stranded Assets, and Entrenched Interests Session 4: Pushing against climate denial and defending science Moderator: Mark Blyth (Brown University) Initial paper/presentation for discussion: “Evidence-based Solutions to Combat Scientific Misinformation,” by Justin Farrell, Robert Brulle and Kathryn McConnell (Yale University and Brown University) Panelists: Kert Davies (Climate Investigation Center) Timmons Roberts (Brown University) Kerry Ard (Ohio State University) The Rhodes Center for International Economics, the Institute at Brown for Environment and Society, and the Office of the President are pleased to announce a one day conference on the economic and political consequences of climate change. The conference focuses on three key areas. First, the economics of rising sea levels for real coastal estate markets, which comprise a large portion of US housing market growth and hence personal wealth. The economics of ‘stranded carbon assets.’ That is, the raw materials and financial assets tied up in carbon release that have a high current value but whose values could decline precipitously in the future, especially if ambitious action is undertaken as scientific consensus suggests is needed. The third is the organized politics of climate denial: who are the agents and institutions behind scientific disinformation and how can such a politics best be countered? A lunchtime keynote speech will be given by Rhode Island Senator Sheldon Whitehouse. Lunch will be provided for participants. Read full Research Brief on the conference: https://watson.brown.edu/research/2019/brown-university-hosts-conference-americas-climate-change-future Co-sponsored by the Office of the President, the Rhodes Center, and IBES, Brown University, and the Office of U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse

Fire: A Biography by Stephen Pyne - What Fire Does - Keynote Address
 
01:06:34
Keynote Address: Fire: A Biography Stephen Pyne from Arizona State University Fire has existed on Earth since plants colonized the continents. A major phase change in its history occurred when a creature, ourselves, learned to exploit it deliberately and eventually assumed a species monopoly over its use. We got small guts and big heads because we learned to cook food. We went to the top of the food chain because we learned to cook landscapes. And now we've become a geologic force because we've begun to cook the planet. Today, the Earth divides into two grand realms of combustion - one that burns living landscapes and one that burns lithic ones. We now have too little of the right kind of fire, too much of the wrong kind, and too much combustion overall.

The nation comprises the island of Madagascar (the fourth-largest island in the world), and numerous smaller peripheral islands. Following the prehistoric breakup of the supercontinent Gondwana, Madagascar split from the Indian peninsula around 88 million years ago, allowing native plants and animals to evolve in relative isolation. Consequently, Madagascar is a biodiversity hotspot; over 90% of its wildlife is found nowhere else on Earth. The island's diverse ecosystems and unique wildlife are threatened by the encroachment of the rapidly growing human population and other environmental threats. The first archaeological evidence for human foraging on Madagascar may have occurred as much as 10,000 years ago. Human settlement of Madagascar occurred between 350 BC and AD 550 by Austronesian peoples, arriving on outrigger canoes from Borneo. These were joined around AD 1000 by Bantu migrants crossing the Mozambique Channel from East Africa. Other groups continued to settle on Madagascar over time, each one making lasting contributions to Malagasy cultural life. The Malagasy ethnic group is often divided into 18 or more subgroups of which the largest are the Merina of the central highlands. Until the late 18th century, the island of Madagascar was ruled by a fragmented assortment of shifting sociopolitical alliances. Beginning in the early 19th century, most of the island was united and ruled as the Kingdom of Madagascar by a series of Merina nobles. The monarchy ended in 1897 when the island was absorbed into the French colonial empire, from which the island gained independence in 1960. The autonomous state of Madagascar has since undergone four major constitutional periods, termed republics. Since 1992, the nation has officially been governed as a constitutional democracy from its capital at Antananarivo. However, in a popular uprising in 2009, president Marc Ravalomanana was made to resign and presidential power was transferred in March 2009 to Andry Rajoelina. Constitutional governance was restored in January 2014, when Hery Rajaonarimampianina was named president following a 2013 election deemed fair and transparent by the international community. Madagascar is a member of the United Nations, the African Union (AU), the Southern African Development Community (SADC), and the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie. Madagascar belongs to the group of least developed countries, according to the United Nations. Malagasy and French are both official languages of the state. The majority of the population adheres to traditional beliefs, Christianity, or an amalgamation of both. Ecotourism and agriculture, paired with greater investments in education, health, and private enterprise, are key elements of Madagascar's development strategy. Under Ravalomanana, these investments produced substantial economic growth, but the benefits were not evenly spread throughout the population, producing tensions over the increasing cost of living and declining living standards among the poor and some segments of the middle class. As of 2017, the economy has been weakened by the 2009–2013 political crisis, and quality of life remains low for the majority of the Malagasy population.

SUMMARY ======= The sea, the world ocean or simply the ocean is the connected body of salty water that covers over 70 percent of the Earth's surface. It moderates the Earth's climate and has important roles in the water cycle, carbon cycle, and nitrogen cycle. It has been travelled and explored since ancient times, while the scientific study of the sea—oceanography—dates broadly from the voyages of Captain James Cook to explore the Pacific Ocean between 1768 and 1779. The word "sea" is also used to denote smaller, partly landlocked sections of the ocean. The most abundant solid dissolved in sea water is sodium chloride. The water also contains salts of magnesium, calcium, and potassium, amongst many other elements, some in minute concentrations. Salinity varies widely, being lower near the surface and the mouths of large rivers and higher in the depths of the ocean; however the relative proportions of dissolved salts varies little across the oceans. Winds blowing over the surface of the sea produce waves, which break when they enter shallow water. Winds also create surface currents through friction, setting up slow but stable circulations of water throughout the oceans. The directions of the circulation are governed by factors including the shapes of the continents and the rotation of the earth (the Coriolis effect). Deep-sea currents, known as the global conveyor belt, carry cold water from near the poles to every ocean. Tides, the generally twice-daily rise and fall of sea levels, are caused by the rotation of the Earth and the gravitational effects of the orbiting Moon, and to a lesser extent of the Sun. Tides may have a very high range in bays or estuaries. Submarine earthquakes arising from tectonic plate movements under the oceans can lead to destructive tsunamis, as can volcanoes, huge landslides or the impact of large meteorites. A wide variety of organisms, including bacteria, protists, algae, plants, fungi and animals, live in the sea, which offers a wide range of marine habitats and ecosystems, ranging vertically from the sunlit surface waters and the shoreline to the enormous depths and pressures of the cold, dark abyssal zone, and in latitude from the cold waters under the Arctic ice to the colourful diversity of coral reefs in tropical regions. Many of the major groups of organisms evolved in the sea and life may have started there. The sea provides substantial supplies of food for humans, mainly fish, but also shellfish, mammals and seaweed, whether caught by fishermen or farmed underwater. Other human uses of the sea include trade, travel, mineral extraction, power generation, warfare, and leisure activities such as swimming, sailing and scuba diving. Many of these activities create marine pollution. The sea is important in human culture, with major appearances in literature at least since Homer's Odyssey, in marine art, in cinema, in theatre and in classical music. Symbolically, the sea appears as monsters such as Scylla in mythology and represents the unconscious mind in dream interpretation.

Peat
 
24:24
Peat (turf) is an accumulation of partially decayed vegetation or organic matter that is unique to natural areas called peatlands or mires. The peatland ecosystem is the most efficient carbon sink on the planet because peatland plants capture the CO2 which is naturally released from the peat maintaining an equilibrium. In natural peatlands the "annual rate of biomass production is greater than the rate of decomposition" but it takes "thousands of years for peatlands to develop the deposits of 1.5 to 2.3 m, which is the average depth of the boreal peatlands." One of the most common components is Sphagnum moss, although many other plants can contribute. Soils that contain mostly peat are known as a histosol. Peat forms in wetland conditions, where flooding obstructs flows of oxygen from the atmosphere, slowing rates of decomposition. Peatlands, also known as mires, particularly bogs, are the most important source of peat, but other less common wetland types also deposit peat, including fens, pocosins, and peat swamp forests. Other words for lands dominated by peat include moors, or muskegs. Landscapes covered in peat also have specific kinds of plants, particularly Sphagnum moss, Ericaceous shrubs, and sedges (see bog for more information on this aspect of peat). Since organic matter accumulates over thousands of years, peat deposits also provide records of past vegetation and climates stored in plant remains, particularly pollen. Hence they allow humans to reconstruct past environments and changes in human land use. This video is targeted to blind users.

SUMMARY ======= The sea, the world ocean or simply the ocean is the connected body of salty water that covers over 70 percent of the Earth's surface. It moderates the Earth's climate and has important roles in the water cycle, carbon cycle, and nitrogen cycle. It has been travelled and explored since ancient times, while the scientific study of the sea—oceanography—dates broadly from the voyages of Captain James Cook to explore the Pacific Ocean between 1768 and 1779. The word "sea" is also used to denote smaller, partly landlocked sections of the ocean. The most abundant solid dissolved in sea water is sodium chloride. The water also contains salts of magnesium, calcium, and potassium, amongst many other elements, some in minute concentrations. Salinity varies widely, being lower near the surface and the mouths of large rivers and higher in the depths of the ocean; however the relative proportions of dissolved salts varies little across the oceans. Winds blowing over the surface of the sea produce waves, which break when they enter shallow water. Winds also create surface currents through friction, setting up slow but stable circulations of water throughout the oceans. The directions of the circulation are governed by factors including the shapes of the continents and the rotation of the earth (the Coriolis effect). Deep-sea currents, known as the global conveyor belt, carry cold water from near the poles to every ocean. Tides, the generally twice-daily rise and fall of sea levels, are caused by the rotation of the Earth and the gravitational effects of the orbiting Moon, and to a lesser extent of the Sun. Tides may have a very high range in bays or estuaries. Submarine earthquakes arising from tectonic plate movements under the oceans can lead to destructive tsunamis, as can volcanoes, huge landslides or the impact of large meteorites. A wide variety of organisms, including bacteria, protists, algae, plants, fungi and animals, live in the sea, which offers a wide range of marine habitats and ecosystems, ranging vertically from the sunlit surface waters and the shoreline to the enormous depths and pressures of the cold, dark abyssal zone, and in latitude from the cold waters under the Arctic ice to the colourful diversity of coral reefs in tropical regions. Many of the major groups of organisms evolved in the sea and life may have started there. The sea provides substantial supplies of food for humans, mainly fish, but also shellfish, mammals and seaweed, whether caught by fishermen or farmed underwater. Other human uses of the sea include trade, travel, mineral extraction, power generation, warfare, and leisure activities such as swimming, sailing and scuba diving. Many of these activities create marine pollution. The sea is important in human culture, with major appearances in literature at least since Homer's Odyssey, in marine art, in cinema, in theatre and in classical music. Symbolically, the sea appears as monsters such as Scylla in mythology and represents the unconscious mind in dream interpretation.

Though villages are often located in rural areas, the term urban village is also applied to certain urban neighborhoods. Villages are normally permanent, with fixed dwellings; however, transient villages can occur. Further, the dwellings of a village are fairly close to one another, not scattered broadly over the landscape, as a dispersed settlement.In the past, villages were a usual form of community for societies that practice subsistence agriculture, and also for some non-agricultural societies. In Great Britain, a hamlet earned the right to be called a village when it built a church. In many cultures, towns and cities were few, with only a small proportion of the population living in them. The Industrial Revolution attracted people in larger numbers to work in mills and factories; the concentration of people caused many villages to grow into towns and cities. This also enabled specialization of labor and crafts, and development of many trades. The trend of urbanization continues, though not always in connection with industrialization. Although many patterns of village life have existed, the typical village was small, consisting of perhaps 5 to 30 families. Homes were situated together for sociability and defence, and land surrounding the living quarters was farmed. Traditional fishing villages were based on artisan fishing and located adjacent to fishing grounds.

SUMMARY ======= Madagascar (; Malagasy: Madagasikara), officially the Republic of Madagascar (Malagasy: Repoblikan'i Madagasikara Malagasy pronunciation: [republiˈkʲan madaɡasˈkʲarə̥]; French: République de Madagascar), and previously known as the Malagasy Republic, is an island country in the Indian Ocean, off the coast of East Africa. The nation comprises the island of Madagascar (the fourth-largest island in the world), and numerous smaller peripheral islands. Following the prehistoric breakup of the supercontinent Gondwana, Madagascar split from the Indian peninsula around 88 million years ago, allowing native plants and animals to evolve in relative isolation. Consequently, Madagascar is a biodiversity hotspot; over 90% of its wildlife is found nowhere else on Earth. The island's diverse ecosystems and unique wildlife are threatened by the encroachment of the rapidly growing human population and other environmental threats. The first archaeological evidence for human foraging on Madagascar may have occurred as much as 10,000 years ago. Human settlement of Madagascar occurred between 350 BC and AD 550 by Austronesian peoples, arriving on outrigger canoes from Borneo. These were joined around AD 1000 by Bantu migrants crossing the Mozambique Channel from East Africa. Other groups continued to settle on Madagascar over time, each one making lasting contributions to Malagasy cultural life. The Malagasy ethnic group is often divided into 18 or more subgroups of which the largest are the Merina of the central highlands. Until the late 18th century, the island of Madagascar was ruled by a fragmented assortment of shifting sociopolitical alliances. Beginning in the early 19th century, most of the island was united and ruled as the Kingdom of Madagascar by a series of Merina nobles. The monarchy ended in 1897 when the island was absorbed into the French colonial empire, from which the island gained independence in 1960. The autonomous state of Madagascar has since undergone four major constitutional periods, termed republics. Since 1992, the nation has officially been governed as a constitutional democracy from its capital at Antananarivo. However, in a popular uprising in 2009, president Marc Ravalomanana was made to resign and presidential power was transferred in March 2009 to Andry Rajoelina. Constitutional governance was restored in January 2014, when Hery Rajaonarimampianina was named president following a 2013 election deemed fair and transparent by the international community. Madagascar is a member of the United Nations, the African Union (AU), the Southern African Development Community (SADC), and the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie. Madagascar belongs to the group of least developed countries, according to the United Nations. Malagasy and French are both official languages of the state. The majority of the population adheres to traditional beliefs, Christianity, or an amalgamation of both. Ecotourism and agriculture, paired with greater investments in education, health, and private enterprise, are key elements of Madagascar's development strategy. Under Ravalomanana, these investments produced substantial economic growth, but the benefits were not evenly spread throughout the population, producing tensions over the increasing cost of living and declining living standards among the poor and some segments of the middle class. As of 2017, the economy has been weakened by the 2009–2013 political crisis, and quality of life remains low for the majority of the Malagasy population.
