‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Stars Speak Out After the Firing of Director James Gunn
Zoe Saldana, Chris Pratt, and several more Guardians of the Galaxy stars have spoken out following the firing of director James Gunn. Gunn, 51, directed the first two installments of the Marvel franchise and was working on the third’s script when he was abruptly let go by Disney on Friday. The decision was prompted by the uncovering of satirical, intentionally provocative tweets of his from 2008 and 2009 on topics ranging from pedophilia and rape. In a statement, Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn described “offensive attitudes and statements” that were “indefensible and inconsistent” with the studio’s values. Gunn apologized for the tweets, calling them “wildly insensitive,” and several of the films’ cast members have since broken their silence. “It’s been a challenging weekend I’m not gonna lie,” Saldana tweeted on Sunday. “I’m pausing myself to take everything in before I speak out of term. I just want everyone to know I love ALL members of my GOTG family. Always will.” It’s been a challenging weekend I’m not gonna lie. I’m pausing myself to take everything in before I speak out of term. I just want everyone to know I love ALL members of my GOTG family. Always will. — […]

Humanity Is Using Our Budget of Natural Resources Faster Than Ever Before
Every year, the international research organization Global Footprint Network calculates how quickly the world’s population is using the Earth’s natural resources. Their results determine Earth Overshoot Day–the day humanity’s usage of natural resources surpasses our allotted budget for that year. This year, Earth Overshoot Day falls on Aug. 1, the earliest date since we started falling into ecological debt in the 1970s, the organization says. (Last year, Earth Overshoot Day was just a day later, on Aug. 2). This means that for the remaining five months of 2018, humanity will be using more natural resources than what the Earth can renew in the year, chipping into our ecological savings. “In other words, humanity is currently using nature 1.7 times faster than our planet’s ecosystems can regenerate,” said the Global Footprint Network in a press release. “This is akin to using 1.7 Earths.” The calculations are made with ecological footprint accounting. One’s “ecological footprint” is the amount of natural resources a person requires to live. The calculations include international demand for resources such as timber, food, and fibers. They also look at the absorption of carbon emissions and infrastructure use. Humanity’s carbon footprint currently makes up 60% of the total ecological […]
