EU moves on renewable energy

EU moves on renewable energy

Posted Thu, 06 Feb 2014 10:27:00 GMT by Dave Armstrong

Wind and solar energy are beginning to take over in parts of Europe that are not importing low-cost fossil fuels. The green light is especially bright after a vote yesterday in the EU. This could light the way for vast technological improvement, and a healthy future.

Loggers and land-grabbers should leave SE Asia?

Loggers and land-grabbers should leave SE Asia?

Posted Mon, 27 Jan 2014 08:49:01 GMT by JW Dowey

Were the ancient Taiwanese or the forest tribes of Borneo responsible for early agricultural practice. Now we can see a clearer picture, it seems likely that both introduced many technologies that improved the lives of Asians, and many other unknown peoples also produced just as many ideas and improvements on the Early Holocene life-style.

Who can stop the terrible accumulation of greenhouse gases? Well it seems some politicians are still intent on increasing them! And the reason? Simply making lots of profit.

International Day for Disaster Reduction

International Day for Disaster Reduction

Posted Sun, 13 Oct 2013 10:00:00 GMT by Paul Robinson

The supply of days may soon run out when we can have simply one day for each cause. Disaster mitigation however is a real problem. If we are to combat the results of earthquakes, hurricanes, droughts and floods, we must prepare to help every member of any community, and not just the ones who can help themselves. There exist many emergency teams who are trained to help with anyone disabled, but it is the community who must also have this training, as it could be anyone who ends up disabled in the disaster!

World Teachers' Day 2013

Posted Sat, 05 Oct 2013 04:01:00 GMT by Paul Robinson

Today is World Teachers' Day 2013. While many gain notoriety or fame by making profits, the average teacher manages much more by simply developing expertise. She or he simply encourages achievement in others.

World Animal Day 2013

Posted Fri, 04 Oct 2013 07:52:15 GMT by JW Dowey

Why not rediscover your enthusiasm for every animal on earth? While we concentrate on wildlife, the love of life easily stretches to farm animals, our pets and, of course, the mistreatment that some creatures, both domestic and wild and free, suffer from human interference.

Arctic Exploitation - Murmansk Pirates

Arctic Exploitation - Murmansk Pirates

Posted Wed, 02 Oct 2013 08:52:24 GMT by JW Dowey

Unresolved, but still liable to blow up into another international row, the Arctic's exploitation is being shown up by the Greenpeace action. Military involvement seems to be part of the Russian reaction to any denial of their supposed rights to territory that belongs to no one.

With Syria now threatening a world that has been becoming a little more peaceful, the International Day Against Nuclear Testing is one we should consider as useful to remind everybody just what the people of the world want, if not the politicians.

The life of the Yasuni Reserve in the Amazon is not as we know it. With 44 times the biodiversity of the whole of one country in one hectare, it exhibits a show of insect, amphibian, bird and even mammalian species that we can’t imagine. Now replace them all with oil rigs.

Columbia University has created a maelstrom with publication of probable links between waste water injection and quakes. Long suspected, this evidence is pretty damning, and useful ammunition for the anti-fracking lobby.

Conservation protocols between China and the US

Conservation protocols between China and the US

The US and China cooperate in many areas but the surprising thing about this "protocol" is the way in which it quietly continues, without, hopefully, too much argument.

World Refugee Day 2013 is hardly a celebration. Affluent nations are struggling now, but without the labour and resources of weak nations, the affluence will disappear altogether. Help is most definitely needed for those who suffer so much more than we do, wherever they are.
