Reviewing transition agricultural practice

Reviewing transition agricultural practice

Posted Tue, 27 May 2014 06:25:00 GMT by Dave Armstrong

Would you prefer your food local and with fair prices, or supermarket-displayed from sources near and far? We know farmers get a raw deal from the food industry, and French and British farms are going under regularly, as bankruptcy grows. Here is a solution that works in many countries. Is it for you?

Forming better soils, gardens and farms

Forming better soils, gardens and farms

Posted Wed, 30 Apr 2014 10:00:00 GMT by Dave Armstrong

The earth is named because we live on a soil substrate on which we used to depend for almost everything. Now, it’s sad and neglected, but also creates disasters from flooding and carbon release while providing less and less in the way of crops. Research like this paper has to be pushed hard to solve this enormously significant problem.

Solar energy saves the earth?

Solar energy saves the earth?

When will people, especially governments, believe those who are far better qualified than they are to judge the earth and its workings. When hell freezes over, perhaps? No, I'm sorry, it's when earth becomes hell, as it already has for the victims of increasing climate change.

Trees-the solution to flooding?

Trees-the solution to flooding?

Wilding can mean the bears and wolves and lions of previous millennia returning to our neighbourhood. It also refers to more vegetative matters. The trees and other producers here are also the water retainers for any watershed. Without bogs and forests, the run-off from rain travels quickly off the land and floods both highland and lowland.

Can we really be useful to our coastal fauna, by providing their old nurseries and larders in the form of algal forest, as well as artificial reefs and controlled fishing?

Using the energy within our bodies!

Using the energy within our bodies!

We need to be greener. So why not use the plentiful energy within the body. It won’t power a city, but the uses of 'internal energy sources' would be very interesting. New energy sources have not been researched inside the organism, but the potential in the human body and in environmental monitoring within other species, for example is beyond belief.

The first Earth Day was celebrated on 22nd April 1970, initially in the United States. The UN instituted International Mother Earth Day to coincide with Earth Day. Despite massive world-wide interest in environmental topics, International Mother Earth Day was only endorsed by 50 member states.

"Water, water everywhere - only if we share", is the slogan for UN Year of Water Co-operation. Although there are many areas of the world where there are shortages of water, there is really plenty of it, if only ways can be found of sharing it. UN World water Day was first designated in 1993 and for 20 years has been working hard to draw attention to the need for conservation, development and co-operation with respect to water supply.

The relentless mantra of bad-news for the world's poorest farmers may be lifting: a simple organic technique for growing rice is breaking records, and raising hopes, for India's struggling small farmers. The so-called SRI technique is also boosting yields for other crops too – but the good news story hasn't yet won over all the critics.
