Scientists Concerned For Academic Freedom over GM foods

November 25, 2009 - ...cases, it may be appropriate for government to implement ‘reserve powers’ to direct research. This may be the case with some research that has security implications. However, it is inappropriate for governments and their representatives to interfere in genuine academic debate and to intervene with the grant processes of the ARC, NHMRC or CSIRO.” (Letter signed by Professor Philip W. Kuchel, FAA, Secretary, Science Policy) https://senate.aph.gov.au/submissions/comittees/viewdocument.aspx?id=b2d245b1-a179-4843-a909-8d45715de834 Please add your name and affiliation to the letter below by sending an e-mail message to m.w.ho@i-sis.org.uk We acknowledge the Institute of Science in Society http://www.i-sis.org.uk The full article is at http://www.i-sis.org.uk/scientistsConcernedAcademicFreedom.php Keywords: ~...

Opinion: The right side of history? Labor’s noble climate talk lost in coal smoke

August 30, 2019 - ...164,000ML a year. Some aquifers connect with water in the Great Artesian Basin, which is being used without metering. Water tables are being lowered in some instances and many water bores are failing. Other industrial water usage in the region includes five operational and six proposed coal mines. The Acland New Hope mine was subject to a Queensland Land Court judgment on water and health issues so damning that it is difficult to understand why this mine is allowed to continue. The number of coal seam gas wells is projected to triple, supported by the Queensland government. Pre-election, the Morrison...

Submission: Australia’s Technology Investment Roadmap (17 June 2020)

June 17, 2020 - The Australian Government invited brief commentary on their Technology Roadmap to guide investment in energy generation over the next few decades. One key concept in this Roadmap is the notion of technology “neutrality”. However, this concept should be rejected as technologies are not equivalent in their potential to reduce emissions. There are sufficient zero-emitting technologies available for further development without wasting resources on fossil-fuels. The Roadmap also fails as it does not have a “destination”, that is, a well-defined emissions-reduction target. For details of DEA’s submission, see here....

Global warming to worsen malnutrition: report

December 18, 2007 - ...Food and Agriculture Organization, the World Food Programme and the International Fund for Agricultural Development raised the hunger alert at the U.N. Climate Change Conference in Bali, Indonesia. Speaking on behalf of the three, the Food and Agriculture Organization’s head said extreme weather is already affecting “food security.” “If we do not act now, climate change will increase the number of hungry people in the world,” said director general Jacques Diouf. “Climate change is a major challenge to world food security.” The organization has estimated that 854 million people world­wide suffer from hunger and malnutrition, including 820 million in developing...

Forget Bush for the moment, let’s worry about China!

In 2000, China anticipated doubling its coal consumption by 2020; it is now expected to have done so by the end of this year. Consumption in China is huge partly because it is inefficient: as one Chinese official told Der Spiegel in early 2006, “To produce goods worth $10,000 we need seven times the resources used by Japan, almost six times the resources used by the U.S. and — a particular source of embarrassment — almost three times the resources used by India.” Meanwhile,...

BODHI: a buddhist influenced NGO

June 3, 2006 - ...a Buddhist-influenced organisation. I visited India that year, and met the Dalai Lama and the secretary of health of the Tibetan government in exile. (By the way, I also met my future wife, Susan, in India at that time.) Impressed, I vowed to do what I could to improve the health of Tibetan refugees in India. But as listeners will appreciate, it is much easier to make vows than it is achieve them. To make a long story short, Susan and I co-founded BODHI in 1989. The Dalai Lama agreed to become our founding patron. Three years later, during the...

Black Carbon and Tropospheric Ozone in Global Warming and Human Health

March 6, 2011 - The report from UNEP and World Meteorological “Association Integrated Assessment of Black Carbon and Tropospheric ozone” http://www.unep.org/dewa/Portals/67/pdf/Black_Carbon.pdf is a comprehensive review of a complicated topic. Black Carbon (BC) and ozone (O3) have significant direct health impacts and are important factors in global warming. They can be countered by simple measures. This is an ABC of what we should know about them Black carbon; the facts Black carbon (BC) exists as atmospheric particles and is a component of ‘soot’ It is black because its particles absorb visible light. This absorption leads to a disturbance of the planetary radiation balance and eventually...

Population & Health

February 8, 2011 - The following article appears this week in Medical Observer. The author is DEA national committee member and GP, Dr George Crisp. WITH a higher growth rate than many developing nations, the debate on Australia’s future population is well overdue. In the driest inhabited continent, with the poorest of soils, determining a sustainable population must be a priority. Yet we are led to believe that population growth is not only inevitable, but that our future prosperity depends on it. But growth is neither a solution to our demographic imbalance – which it merely serves to propel and magnify it into the...

Preparedness is key to extreme weather events | Healthy Planet, Healthy People | DEA

August 23, 2016 - Preparedness is key to extreme weather events This article by DEA Committee Member Marion Carey was published in the Medical Observer 22 February and appears with the permission and courtesy of Medical Observer. The medical impacts of extreme weather events is a growing issue in suffering and cost. This is one of several DEA initiatives on this matter which includes a submission to the Senate Committee, an appearance before the Senate Committee and an article “Flood and fire; the case for a levy on coal exports” in Renew Economy, 10 February 2013. Preparedness is key to extreme weather events While...

REDD: An introduction

March 10, 2010 - ...planned to be made at COP-15 which will take place in Copenhagen. The “Bali Action Plan” calls for: “Policy approaches and positive incentives on issues relating to reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation in developing countries; and the role of conservation, sustainable management of forests and enhancement of forest carbon stocks in developing countries”. The above paragraph (paragraph 1b(iii)) is referred to as “REDD-plus”. It is worth reading closely, because so far it is the only agreed text we have on REDD. “REDD-plus” includes activities with potentially extremely serious implications for indigenous people, local communities and forests: 1.“conservation” sounds...

Food, Population Policy and Climate Change

January 3, 2009 - ...as to what can be done and attention must be turned to those Western high consumption countries where population growth will make it very difficult to reduce greenhouse emissions significantly. By 2050 the US population will have increased by 45 per cent from today’s 302 million. In Australia the present population of 21M is projected to increase to 35M by 2056. http://www.population.org.au/ In the UK, the population is 61M projected to reach 71M by 2031 and 100M by the end of the century. What is the population policy in these countries? In the US there is no official policy for...

Reports on Recent Climate Change Conferences

While the scientists say it is often difficult to pick whether this is natural variability, the fact that observed measures are tracking along the IPCC A1FI (most carbon intensive SRES) scenario is of concern. The Australian Climate Change Science Program (CSIRO and the Bureau of Meteorology) had available a booklet Science Update 2009 issue one summarising recent relevant climate change science, with relevant references. It discusses the more recent than IPCC AR4 changes. Subscription can be made at www.climatechangeinaustralia.gov.au Ross Garnaut described how the Great Recession...

Clean Energy For Eternity and Matthew Nott

At that rate, CO2 may be 4 or 5 times higher than it has been for the last 400,000 years by the end of the century. A climate change sceptic is going to have a hard time demonstrating that a rapid increase in atmospheric CO2 will have no impact on my grandchildren. The alarming fact is that the rate of increase of CO2 is increasing. By the end of this century, there may be 40% more people on the planet than there were...

A good starting point is the recent Friends of the Earth publication Climate Code Red, available on PDF at www.climatecodered.net We mustn’t lose heart. Humanity in crisis is capable of phenomenal things. Look at World War II. The carbon challenge is at least as large, only it’s much harder to see or comprehend. We all need to take ownership of this collective problem. Only we can solve it. Martin Williams, DEA member and General Practitioner in Hampton, Victoria....

Corporations such as this can easily dismiss individual protests, but it is much more difficult to ignore the efforts of well-organised and persistent lobby groups and organisations. Individuals can easily burn out. The support which members of groups can provide to each other and to other groups is important to sustain morale and to attract new interest. As the campaign grew, the role of the lay press also became increasingly important. Lessons for Australia How would such a campaign have progressed in...
