Stanford’s Paul Ehrlich fears the worst for a planet with 7 billion residents

October 26, 2011 - ...of 7 billion, Ehrlich discusses post-Population Bomb growth with the Stanford News Service. Global population has more than doubled since you wrote The Population Bomb. What major consequences of that growth do we see today? We are seeing climate disruption leading to rising food prices, loss of biodiversity, deteriorating ecosystem services, increased chances of vast epidemics and nuclear resource wars and a general reduction in the odds of avoiding the first catastrophic collapse of a global civilisation. Have any of your prescriptions from The Population Bomb been followed to success in the last 40 years? Read the rest online here....

How the low carbon economy can improve health

April 5, 2012 - We strongly recommend this article in the BMJ by Andy Haines, professor of public health and primary care and Carlos Dora, co-ordinator in public health at WHO. For those speaking on the topic it has a list of key references. How the low carbon economy can improve health by Andy Haines, professor of public health and primary care & Carlos Dora, co-ordinator The current global economy has generated enormous wealth but simultaneously created profound, and in many cases growing, inequalities. Furthermore, the global economy is based on unsustainable foundations, not only because of a dysfunctional global financial system but also...

The World’s Worst Toxic Pollution Problems 2011

December 9, 2011 - ...by the Blacksmith Institute Technical Advisory Board. These pollutants include, but are not limited to, heavy metals, radionuclides, poly-aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), volatile organic compounds (VOCs), fluorides, asbestos, cyanides, and persistent organic pollutants (POPs) such as polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and some pesticides.

Dick Smith on population growth and the developers

April 22, 2011 - Dick Smith, who assisted DEA with the press release of our population position paper, has written in the on-line press regarding the role of property developers in growth “Again and again as I tour Australia discussing our failure to have a sensible plan for population, I ask simple questions: Why would we want to rapidly increase our population? What’s so great about constant growth? What are the advantages for average Australians? I fail to ever get a convincing answer. The best the “pro-growthers” come up with is “because we can”, and that of course, is no answer at all. It’s...

Desalination and relentless ‘development’ for what? The sorry story of the SA Gulfs

April 10, 2011 - ...becomes too high? Will there be independent monitoring? Seven Post treatment of boron Boron is a metal (metalloid) found in seawater. Boron scales the rust off pipes. The World Health Organisation (WHO) recommendation for safe levels of boron in desalinated water is less than 0.5 mg/L. Some chemical standards assert that there is no safe level of boron for humans. Desalinated water has to be treated especially to control the boron level and this greatly increases the amount of electricity used in the process.

Are we in danger of passing peak health?

June 6, 2011 - ...poor dietary choice and inactivity, has become a major contributor to chronic disease while eroding traditional, spiritual and cultural values necessary for our non-material well being. Rates of diabetes and obesity are escalating, worsening health outcomes, diminishing quality of life, and stretching health and welfare services and budgets. Alcohol and drug use are compromising physical and mental health, damaging our social fabric. But rather than address the causes of societal ill health, we are instead focusing on increasingly expensive, technology-based, hospital-oriented and, inevitably, unsustainable solutions. Antibiotic resistance is a prime example of why this type of exploitative thinking is so...

A healthy world without inequality

May 3, 2013 - ...inequality. Twentieth century tools such as trickle-down economics, deregulation, resource-based growth and inept global governance are no longer suitable. One solution is ‘Contraction and Convergence’, developed by the Global Commons Institute. This calls for industrialised countries to reduce their emissions while developing countries increase theirs to allow for development and poverty reduction. This approach initially seems idealistic and unrealistic, as humans don’t easily give up their positions of privilege, nor want to ‘do without’. As doctors we know ‘crash diets’ rarely work for sustainable weight loss. Yet long-term behaviour change is more successful if unhealthy behaviour is replaced with a...

Neglect of this patient will affect all of us

We’re seeing small mammals and seed-eating birds disappearing across the largely uninhabited north of Australia. And Phytophthora (root rot) is decimating the unique vegetation of Western Australia. Dissolved CO2 is causing acidification of the oceans, which is harming coral reefs and shell-forming organisms, with consequences for the entire ocean food web. Massive soil erosion and deforestation are not leaving Earth much capacity to metabolise and filter out the toxins. Sounds like liver failure and end stage renal disease. Our patient might have presented with hyperthermia, but now we’re...

And I’ve heard numerous experts and read many reports on Third World health and poverty. My experience with BODHI has informed my writing. It’s also made me sceptical of many of the conventional solutions proposed for poverty – but that’s another story.
