Carbon emissions down, but carbon dioxide levels still rampant!

Carbon emissions down, but carbon dioxide levels still rampant!

Posted Tue, 22 Nov 2016 10:15:00 GMT by Dave Armstrong

We have been unable to speak on the body politic for months. The situation is like a freeze on global warming (as well as wildlife conservation, and the rest!) However, here is the current situation, thanks to one group of scientists. Maybe this will be simply history soon, but we certainly hope the present situation is resolved, and very soon. Winter is coming, but it’s getting hot.

Giant Antarctic marine reserve: international compromise or sham?

Giant Antarctic marine reserve: international compromise or sham?

Will the Russians maintain or increase their fisheries near and in the protected Ross Sea? Other nations are also fishing there, and few vessels will report any infringement of the agreed protections in a simply enormous area of uninhabited Antarctica and its surrounding islands. This is just one political aspect of this new cooperation. It’s the conservation that matters, but tell that to the sea-angels!

Carnivores good for hunters or farmers or just plain dangerous?

Just what impact can we expect as large carnivores are returning to old haunts, despite a modern-day increase in the human populations of Europe and North America (maybe even in South America, Africa and Asia?) Would you vote for more ecosystem management like this?

GODAN: Worldwide Hunger indicates Help Needed!

We’re afraid that we have neglected the food security side of our responsibilities. Articles on Politics and Health have been published at the expense of this vital area, as the effects of consolidating food reserves are not only to alleviate criminal use of bushmeat, theft and extortion. We must also preserve areas for wildlife where otherwise people have been forced to cut down their forest to grow more crops/sell timber/build mines, roads or various infrastructure. GODAN are gathering in New York to spread expertise on agriculture and nutrition that will feed the parts of the world that are starving.

The move to exploit rainforest and peatland with no motive other than profit is finally being stopped. Indonesia has needed to act on mining, forestry and agriculture for decades, and finally the ball is rolling.

Crops for Every Corn - or Sauerkraut!

Whether we eat vegetables or meat, tofu or McDonalds, the basis of human and animal ingestion is the producers. These are the plants that are eaten by us all, in all their incredible varieties, providing food and drink to every living thing on the planet. Wouldn’t it be a good idea to safeguard all the variety for our future needs. You bet your fat bottom! Now Norway and Germany are leading the way, along with 137 other nations to conserve what we have, in case we haven’t much left in 2017.
