Global Warming’s final warning.

Global Warming’s final warning.

Posted Mon, 15 Sep 2014 11:59:00 GMT by JW Dowey

The NYC Climate Summit is building up pressure. This press release is a significant document, alongside all the crushing evidence of an out-of-control climate, involving many prominent people who want the politicians to make their own impact. It’s from 160 leading environmentalists from 44 countries, and, believe me, we all approve of the action.

Subsistence is a life style now. Using wind power or PV cells, we can all reduce energy costs, both to ourselves and the environment.

'Spiny' is the Super-Sized Predatory Dino

'Spiny' is the Super-Sized Predatory Dino

The essence of predation is success at hunting. This semi-aquatic monster could probably have killed off any creature it met on land or in the water. It is simply the biggest and the best at its job. And that was a niche for eating big prey!

How can science cope with the vast expanses of maritime area and all the problems the oceans have? Employ everybody who’s out there, that’s how. Sailors and lubbers, sinners and saints can all join in to add to the desperately deficient data. We do need to know what and why, how and why the denizens of the deep are coping with the world we are changing for them.

An Amazonian nightmare of deforestation

An Amazonian nightmare of deforestation

Posted Thu, 11 Sep 2014 09:33:00 GMT by Dave Armstrong

The Indonesian forest, especially on 'easier' islands is disappearing fast and there seems little we can do to stop the Amazon once again disappearing as fast as it ever did, under the chainsaws and giant equipment of loggers. Murder is being used as a weapon, activists are threatened and armed men rule. We can’t rely on tribal peoples to stop potentially dangerous people from robbing them of their inheritance, but we can take joint responsibility by stopping any trade in agricultural products. Let’s plough all our effort into prevention. The need is to stop these greedy people rather than compensate for their destruction.

WMO report on more pollution

WMO report on more pollution

Posted Wed, 10 Sep 2014 07:42:01 GMT by JW Dowey

When can we expect a conference to make headway against the mass of polluters and their investment in fossil fuels. So far, only threats of storm and drought seem to have had any effect. Maybe the earth itself will persuade us to finally change our ways as we wait for the next disastrous extreme weather event. Hopefully, we can use the next conference to ''make waves'' as the evidence becomes overwhelming.

We can already detect ways in which small creatures are surviving against the odds. The humans and other larger species on islands are next in line to suffer from climate change. Can we help them or do anything at all to mitigate global warming. There is an answer, but do all of our politicians know it?

Who is aware of their city’s invisible pollution problems and how can the health of urbanites be improved? Too often, we are too late in saving the health of our workers and children. Those who know the truth have probably moved out already.

How did the peach become selected from the typical forest tree. Was it developed like many fruits as a recent addition to food habits, or did it become domesticated early, like the goat, the dog and the pig, to provide a rich varied diet for early agriculturalists?

Serious results follow loss of our glaciers and ice sheets. The need for vigilant and expert reporting is made clear with the latest results from satellite instruments. Both Poles are losing ice rapidly, with Greenland having 75% of the total loss.

Sorry, we're boring the pants off the polluters. But we have to report that yet another approach is being made to solving climate change. The UN will draw together influential organisations and people to finally make a push towards redeeming ourselves, after the failures of Copenhagen and Kyoto. The politics seems impossible, but this is one parley that has to be concluded, and rapidly.

Soil carbon is lost with global warming

Soil carbon is lost with global warming

Posted Thu, 04 Sep 2014 09:52:00 GMT by Dave Armstrong

The world’s soils have been tested, in a thermal gradient from the Arctic through to the tropical rainforest. Despite claims to the contrary, the loss of carbon as global warming increases is going to increase markedly. We have to prepare ourselves to investigate how soils can be somehow prevented from contributing so much of the greenhouse gases that we have to reduce.

Life is changing. Now we can have a garden on our roof, but the wildlife and energy-transforming possibilities are really building up. I doubt if you’ll like some of our ideas here, but there may be some way you can imagine a green roof being of benefit and fitting in to your local landscape.

Whales are wailing (in Faroes and Puget Sound)

Posted Sun, 31 Aug 2014 16:58:00 GMT by Dave Armstrong

The loss of orcas in Puget Sound and the killing of 1500 pilot whales annually in the Faroes is a sign we need more vigilance. People are polluting, overfishing and still attacking the sea and its creatures. The Faroese do not need food, otherwise they could gladly eat whales. Like too many hunters they are retaining bloodthirsty habits that have no place in society, alongside genocide and other bloodlusts.

We gaze at the beauty or stand aghast at the horror of different insects. You have to admire the way in which their tiny but numerous bodies challenge successfully against larger animals as well as to help the Angiosperms to achieve their own mastery of the plant world on land.

Conservation is too conservative in the UK

Conservation is too conservative in the UK

Posted Wed, 27 Aug 2014 06:08:13 GMT by Paul Robinson

The white-tailed eagle, the dormouse and the large blue butterfly are all threatened. But not by extinction. The threat comes from ill-equipped government who are going to cling to a list of alien plants and animals that is so far out-of-date, Darwin would have laughed. People would then be allowed to exterminate species like this on their land.

Why do rich countries sometimes encourage their citizens to consume meats beyond the normal acceptable species. So many extinctions have been caused by restaurant menus that hunting have created.
