Carnivores good for hunters or farmers or just plain dangerous?

Carnivores good for hunters or farmers or just plain dangerous?

Posted Wed, 26 Oct 2016 11:56:23 GMT by JW Dowey

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!

GODAN: Worldwide Hunger indicates Help Needed!

Posted Wed, 14 Sep 2016 18:25:00 GMT by Dave Armstrong

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.

Indonesia acts on palm plantations and pollution

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!

Crops for Every Corn - or Sauerkraut!

Posted Fri, 22 Jan 2016 12:11:00 GMT by Dave Armstrong

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.

What’s up this week in the Paris Climate Change Conference? We heard less than we wanted last week, but when we’ve got down to the nitty-gritty, there’s some hope for great improvement. Here’s one example from both Africa and the Americas. Although afforestation is hardly a headline these days, desertification certainly is and we want to be sure the Great Green Wall across Africa is working. There is certainly money flooding in and trees being planted, but let’s see more photographs and people actually on the ground there!

The future is talked about, the climate is changing, but when will we finally stop the rot. Forests are essential but from Japanese furniture to cardboard and toilet paper, they are still being used illogically and incomprehensibly by people who all know better. The time has come to prevent the disappearance of these trees and all the animals that live in, on and around them. This is a desperate time for us and all the other species around forests.

Water on Earth is becoming rare.

Water on Earth is becoming rare.

The consideration of all factors in your environment is a policy that escapes most politicians, many scientists and even you. Water is inescapable, becoming more scarce and highly useful for normal life. Just ask a Martian. When we look back on the 21st century, and not the 20th as we do here, it is certain that water will be seen as one of the most critical losses from our societies, from the African deserts, to the American groundwater crises; from Manila’s complex water privatisation to simple pollution by nuclear, chemical and fuelling industries.

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.

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!

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!
