Climate change can seem like a problem too big for any one person to bother tackling. But that doesn’t mean that people are just sitting on the sidelines waiting for the inevitable. There are kids who have sued the U.S. government. More than a million students and other people worldwide took to the streets in a one-day strike on behalf of the climate. And scientists, of course, do research to help inform the public about what’s happening to the world around us.

Quite a lot has been going on:

George Monbiot Q + A ‘ How rejuvenating nature could help fight climate change

Natural climate solutions let nature do the hard work in the fight against climate change by restoring habitats such as forests and wetlands. This could absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and help biodiversity thrive. Stephen Woroniecki ‘ a PhD Researcher in Climate Change Adaptation from Lund University in Sweden ‘ discusses how this approach could address the ecological crisis with Guardian columnist and environmental campaigner George Monbiot.

Q: What has inspired you about natural solutions to climate change and what are their chief advantages over other approaches?

Improving Your Landscape Photography by Adding a Subject into the Picture

Have you ever made a picture of a landscape? Sure you have. Everyone has. Making the photo is the easy part, but showing the landscape how you experienced it, is something else. Often the photo does not show the landscape from you perception. Finding a subject is often one of the solutions.

For a lot of photo enthusiasts it is the first thing that is photographed when the new camera has arrived: a landscape. You can find a landscape everywhere; you just have to step outside the door. It does not matter where you live. Landscapes can even be found in the city; they are called urban landscapes.

Everything Your Intern Wants From You

Interns are an investment of time and resources that could realistically go towards hiring a full-time employee instead. So what do you stand to gain from taking one on for a couple of months?

In the next couple of minutes, I’m going to detail how you can benefit from having an intern, what they want from you, and why (from the perspective of a current intern in tech).

An intern (from the eyes of an intern) is someone who isn’t quite at the level of a full-time employee but could be sometime soon. I don’t expect to have the same output and understanding as a full-time employee, which is why I’m here to learn from them and get better. On the other side of things, employers usually also have the same expectation that I’ve still got plenty of room to grow, but will produce meaningful contributions over my internship.
