Sammy Carlson Narrowly Misses Avalanche, Jumps Into Trees Instead–Wild Child Episode 1

this year we posted up in revenue for a couple months shredding with Tim Humphries Ben Moxon John sprigs just a good crew of guys we're going out in the mountain every day we just get up super early rally out to the trailhead and just spend the whole day in the mountains it's boring out there we are we're exploring a lot of different pillow zones and playing the trees a lot having some fun this year in particular it was more challenging and past seasons it's with variable snowpack and we were lucky one day we had a couple close calls like some pretty big pockets ripping out but nothing that we couldn't manage and then the next day we went back out and the snowpack became even more prone to avalanches you know as midway through a build and the whole bowl ripped out good to see you boys we all had to take a step back and just realize that it was not the right time to be up in the mountains there's plenty of warning signs telling us we need to take a break so we just toned her down for a few days and started thinking a little bit differently we are taking this situation that we're in and we're turning it into the best thing possible so we started hanging out in the trees and started to get a tree Jeb's on definitely have to pay attention to go check the charts you know every day when you're going out and make sure you're going out with a good crew of buddies that are also have the proper knowledge to assess the snow passion ultimately going out there the decisions yours no one's gonna stop you from dropping in but you gotta just make sure if you're not feeling it you just walk away

Artificial Trees That Absorb CO2 – Hot Planet Preview – BBC One

trees absorb carbon dioxide but they release it during the night and when they decompose so professor Klaus Lackner an engineer Alan Wright have been designing a tree which could be more efficient than the real thing it was here at biosphere 2 in Arizona that the idea was first conceived biosphere 2 was the largest completely airtight artificial ecosystem ever built the perfect place to study how changes in carbon dioxide would affect the planet after working on several prototypes Klaus and Alan now think they might have finally cracked it this was an early design more like a cabinet than a tree inside a plastic that absorbs co2 these plastics are in exchange resins which are commonly used in water preparation if you disseminate water or make the ionized water this is the kind of stuff you would use you can buy it commercially in large quantities at first I used chemicals to wash the co2 out of the plastic so it could be reused but this needed too much energy to be viable then they made a discovery that was quite simple it happened after they set up a basic experiment using nothing more than an airtight Bell Jar hooked up to a carbon dioxide monitor an experiment they repeated for me here on top you see the plastic material which absorbs the co2 it has been wrapped in thin strips around the frame the level of co2 in the bell jar starts at 386 todays atmospheric levels as expected the plastic immediately absorbs it so the levels of co2 in here are really low around about 140 okay but what they do next they feel is the real breakthrough and so simple they don't the plastic in water and we'll just put it back in there those are the game now the air inside cannot escape back in the bell jar the wet plastic immediately starts to release the absorb co2 okay and the levels are already going on yes so we're going to see it's beginning to trend up and it will pick up over time as the co2 is given off by that material so just by making it wet it's now releasing the co2 that was previously trapped yes I mean it's wet it doesn't want to see you too so it pushes it off it's as simple as that it's as simple as that it's amazing it is and then you can dry it out again when it dries out again it will grab more co2 we'll do this over and over and over and over and can literally do this hundreds and hundreds of times having ensured that rainfall will not release the co2 Allanon class and now building a full-scale artificial tree when finished it will have a central drum with panels of the special plastic and a humidity control system by altering the moisture levels it will absorb and then release the co2 for storage this process requires no chemicals only a very small amount of energy and a water supply the vision of the future for these kind of artificial trees is that they can capture the carbon dioxide nobody else can catch that's their advantage that is their strength they estimate that a single tree will absorb about a ton of co2 a day about 75 cars worth 60 million trees could potentially absorb all the co2 we currently emit and that's not all this is one of the few options available to actually go back and reduce the carbon dioxide level in the atmosphere from the level we are already at or will be in 50 years from now back down to where it is safe all this absorbed carbon dioxide would of course need to be put somewhere but that's where other new technologies come in like the geological storage of co2 that's being tested in Utah and because co2 levels are the same around the planet a great forest of artificial trees could be placed right on top of storage sites so the co2 wouldn't have to be transported you

Landscape Tutorial~How to Draw Trees With Leaves Pt 2 of 2

hey everyone welcome back this is the continuation of the how to draw trees with leaves tutorial if you have not seen this tutorial yet please click on the picture on the right to watch part 1 but if you haven't seen me drawing any trees at all before please click on the picture to the left to watch the whole tree Anatomy and everything like that it will really help you to draw the trees in this tutorial this whole process so far has been done only with a four-inch pencil as you can see this pencil is extremely late and the entire tree is mainly one tone and like a four when I divide it down here I set everything over here to be darker that will come in when I started using a darker pencil so remember in this tutorial series where I said you only need so many different pencils well I customize my kit at all I'm using now is the 4 H 2 h HB 2 B 4 B 5 B and 6b and then over here to charcoal pencils and my 9 B this next part I'm gonna grab the HB and the to be the to be like I said before is just your regular yellow school pencil and you can use that instead of buying one of these and it'll work just fine on this rough with the HB and wherever I went darker I'm gonna use this to go even darker so this is the part where you start layering tones the bottom of the tree you don't have to be too weary of what you're doing because it's gonna be mainly in shadow anyway and even anything that's in this slate highlight here it's gonna go a bit darker all right so now as I previously said I'm no longer using the 4-h pencil I have now switched to the HB and I will then later switch to the to be during this one I initially use the 4-h pencil which is a really light pencil I made some parts that were darker and now what I'm doing is I'm taking the HB and going over those parts right and then I'm a darker and I'm making them even darker and even the spots that are on the right side of the page that are slightly lighter or in highlight I'm making them darker because they're gonna be slightly in shadow so the bottom right of the tree will be the darkest part of the drawing while the top left of the tree will be the lightest and they will gradually change in tone as they get from one point to the other and you also want to make sure that it is a gradual change in tone because the light will still penetrate some parts of the tree and then little lightly start to fade as it gets to the tree so in this whole process the register here I went with the HP to darken this side of a bit then I'll it with the to be to darken up even more but I don't think I'm gonna go any darker than that the last thing to put in which always seems to annoy you during the whole process is the tree trunk you can put that in anytime you want I just choose to always put in later I'm not sure why I just do but you still want to be conscious of the light even though this trunk is still in full shadow you just kind of still want to show where that light is coming from and I'm just gonna put the tree and just by hatching and that's just by putting a lot of clothes lines together and I'm gonna make it a little bit lighter on this side of the tree fairly dark on this side of the tree here over just like that and you do want the trunk to be darker than the leaves up above it or at least show because you want to be able to tell where the leaves and and the trunk begins just like that I'm just putting in some harsh lines just to give the trunk a little bit of character things like that I'm gonna go back in with the HB pencil and just fill a little more leaves there just like kind of carve it up a little bit just like that take this I'm on the HB right now it's going to kind of round off the tree here okay also if you would like to you can take the tubing and it just quickly go around the tree like this just a given eyeshadow but you want to put this side of the tree over here in a longer shadow than this side so this shadow should probably go off the page just like that one last thing this is optional I guess this is do eraser I have on hand right now it's my mechanical pencil but if you can learn with the eraser you can and you wanna do the same motion just slow circles or quick circles but you want to keep the circular motion now just going in certain spots and just take a little bit away you give the tree a little bit of highlight just like that I'm even gonna do a little highlight over this side too just like that okay the last thing is yes it's a tree but you still want to have some size or indication that there is a treat beneath all these leaves so for this you just take you can either use a mechanical pounce from any pencil you have on hand and you just quickly put in some branches coming up and you want to have them come out and then go back in again so this one will be about this size have a branch off going this way that's good and you want to also go back in a little bit and put some leaves over it so it looks like it's actually going back into the tree like that we'll do another one right here oh it's still a little one right there fork it out just like that and I'll just leaves over it now you don't want to go too crazy with these you just want to perfu him just to show the viewer that there is a tree underneath all the leaves I find that it sort of adds a likeness to the tree another thing you could do with these tree branches while you're at it buy these leaves you could just add a few branches coming out like that but again you don't want to go too crazy just want to show that there there have a dead branch coming out down here just like that all right so there's a tree with four Leafs and I hope you learn from this it's this drawing here took me about 25 minutes or so but I'm sure for anyone else trying to sit probably take a lot longer but this in a nutshell is how I would draw a tree so I'll flip back to the other one real quick it's fairly similar see how I and all the branches out like this I put a few and out on the outskirts of the tree now this one I didn't shade anywhere near as dark as this one also with this one I had the light coming in too straight down like a noon lighting this is more like a like a 9 a.m.

3:00 4:00 p.m. lighting so all right all right so I hope you guys learn from this if you did if you liked it please subscribe leave a comment you have any questions or if you have any suggestions for future tutorials I would like to hear anything you have to say yeah so hope you like this thank you for watching click on the annotation below to subscribe also check out my channel for many more tutorials.
