Scenes of Reason:climate change and video information

Posted Fri, 27 Mar 2015 03:55:48 GMT by Dave Armstrong

When they speak about environmental issues on news programmes, you rarely get such direct information as these youngsters provide here.

Gorillas or oil: the Virunga question

Gorillas or oil: the Virunga question

Posted Mon, 16 Mar 2015 10:20:34 GMT by Dave Armstrong

Do you choose the gorillas and the rest of the unbelievable wildlife in this most magnificent of African National Parks, or the petrol in your car? I know which alternative to chuck out of the forest, never to see the light of day again.

Human epoch or just invasive hominid species?

Human epoch or just invasive hominid species?

When we raped the Americas and dug up coal industriously for the first time, chopped down forests for ships and swapped lives for lifestyle, was that the beginning of something? Kings Philip, Louis and James began the Anthropocene, according to the latest thinking. Personally, I prefer even the ‘60s to that!

Report on a better Aral Sea

Report on a better Aral Sea

Posted Fri, 06 Mar 2015 10:17:01 GMT by Paul Robinson

The literal solution needed within the Aral Sea area is fresh water. While full regeneration is impossible, fish can indeed swim in this current desert and people can breathe dustless air once more, as money floods into projects that truly help, from energy to health and wildlife.

The regulation of unilateral decisions on hydroelectric power reminds all of us that the water around us really does not belong to us. It belongs just as much to the fish and the water cycle that supplies us with the precious stuff!

Carbon emissions are rarely counted from marijuana smokers, but they are sizeable, apparently. The manifold problems of cocaine are a lot more serious, of course, as described well here by Daniel Faris.

How will governments approach the UN Paris Summit on 30th November, as campaigns worldwide build into asset-threatening divestment of funds and we all begin to accept this has to be the end of fossil fuels. Or it will be the end of the Earth as we know it as far as temperatures are concerned!

Many levers have been tried in establishing conservation aims. This series of really cold swims will test to see if the Antarctic can be maintained as a pollution and overfishing-free zone. That is certainly the way it should remain, but greed can always be counted as a major factor in human affairs.

Are we picking on Paris? No, this is a simple look at the lively discussion surrounding wood fires and vehicular transport in a typical city these days. Two people arguing about their responsibilities towards their capital and its people. This is the way we need to approach city life - by reason, not by dictate.

How much can we use the disabled to usher in new technology and to fill a great gap in society? To fulfil their hopes and improve economies in every nation, many more people can be employed despite any negative attitudes. The result will be a fairer society and less stress for all of us who fear disease or accident that could, at the moment, end our working lives.

South American problems/climate change in Lima today

Posted Mon, 01 Dec 2014 11:15:00 GMT by Paul Robinson

Some biodiversity with macaws in the inclusive story and a lovely woolly alpaca here, but the emphasis in South America is on Lima and the key decisions that should be made there this week. Optimism is reported, but how can we be optimistic when there is so much to do, in so many regions, as global warming provides us all with floods, sudden storms and worse !

After such a long time, the Aral Sea area is about to be rehabilitated, but the large area of the 4th largest inland sea in the world will never be returned to its natural watery state. The partners and donors are rewarding the patience and planning of Uzbekistan’s President Islam Karimov and his First Deputy Prime Minister Rustam Azimov.

Climate: what does the UN want?

Climate: what does the UN want?

Posted Mon, 03 Nov 2014 09:15:00 GMT by Paul Robinson

The UN wants big changes, which it will find difficult to implement. We all agree however with the basic need to follow the logical path towards lowering temperatures and climate risks. There is only one group stopping this inevitable progress, a bit like those who often prevented the progress of the industrial revolution. They did not succeed, so let us all make sure our “industrial evolution for the future” succeeds quickly! The alternatives are non-existent.

How to celebrate UN Day? We suggest it is entirely up to you. Sit down and read uplifting material; worry about progress in one part of the world; get up and volunteer in any way you think right; object to one aspect of the organisation just as everybody else seems to do; whatever --- enjoy the chance it gives you to be universal!
