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...

Reports on Recent Climate Change Conferences

March 30, 2009 - These reports were prepared by Peter Tait, DEA member, NT Key Science Messages from the Climate Conference in Copenhagen Scientists at the international congress in Copenhagen, held in March 2009, have prepared a summary statement of their findings for policy makers. The congress was conceived as an update of the science of global warming ahead of the UN summit in December. Ahead of the UN Climate Change Conference in December this statement will go to officials and heads of state at the conference. The full conclusions from the 2,500 scientific delegates from 80 countries that have attended the three-day meeting...

Food, Population Policy and Climate Change

January 3, 2009 - ...for many other reasons, particularly health, but the above oversimplified example illustrates the difficulty in making recommendations when there are a large number of variables. A more logical approach would be to recognise the huge production of emissions from Western diet food chains and in relation to this the emission production by beef quoted above does not include all the trimmings—transport, slaughter, packaging, cold storage etc and to radically change our lifestyle. An even more logical approach would be not to exist as a consumer of food and everything else. The crux of the problem is the number of people...

REDD: An introduction

March 10, 2010 - ...is simple: governments, companies or forest owners in the South should be rewarded for keeping their forests instead of cutting them down. The devil, as always, is in the details. The idea of making payments to discourage deforestation and forest degradation was discussed in the negotiations leading to the Kyoto Protocol, but it was ultimately rejected. REDD developed from a proposal in 2005 by a group of countries calling themselves the Coalition for Rainforest Nations. Two years later, the proposal was taken up at the Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC in Bali (COP-13). An agreement on REDD is...

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

August 23, 2016 - ...its weather map for temperatures once off the scale (50-52°C and 52-54°C). A relatively small change in the average temperature can significantly increase the frequency of extreme heat events. Australia has warmed steadily since the 1940s, and the probability of extreme heat has now increased almost five-fold compared with 50 years ago. Associated with the heatwave were bushfires across NSW, Victoria and Tasmania. With Hobart reaching its highest temperature on record (41.8 ̊ C), Tasmanian fires destroyed property and bushland, forcing communities flee to the coast and thousands to seek rescue or shelter. In 2009 we had an insight into...

Over the same period an aggressive reduction of CO2 would do little to mitigate warming over the same period There is some uncertainty about the impact of BC because it can influence clouds that have multiple effects on climate that are not fully understood.

A call for publishers to declare their conflicts of interest

October 10, 2007 - ...Australia, Medical Association for the Prevention of War, and the Presidents of their two parent bodies International Physicians for the Prevention of War, and International Society of Doctors for the Environment. The Letter We welcome the recent attention to the issue of the ethics and transparency of publishers in your journal (JRSM 2007;100:113 and 114–115).(1–3) While recent attention in this regard has appropriately focused on the prominent case of Reed Elsevier’s involvement in the global arms trade, there are many wider issues involved. Other examples of questionable publishing ethics which have been identified include the unhealthy involvement of some publishers...

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...

Greening our prescriptions

July 9, 2010 - Dr Rosemary Stanton OAM Lose weight and save the planet – ask me how It can be difficult to convince many people that they need to change their eating and exercise habits. Could a new perspective on food provide a more effective motive? The diet that is better for the environment, with fewer processed packaged foods, less animal fat and more plant-based foods could also improve health and reduce risk of many health problems. CSIRO’s social researchers (1) find people are interested in climate change and understand the urgency to address it. A message to ‘save the planet’ and reduce...

Global warming to worsen malnutrition: report

December 18, 2007 - Courtesy FAO and World Science staff, World Science http://www.world-science.net Expressing their “deepest concern,” three U.N. agencies are warning that climate change will increase global hunger and malnutrition unless immediate action is taken. The alarm was sounded as scientists warned that global warming may have passed a tipping point, with the Arctic Ocean melting much faster than projected. “The Arctic is screaming,” Mark Serreze of the U.S. government’s snow and ice data center in Boulder, Colorado, told news agencies this week; NASA climate scientist Jay Zwally added that the Arctic might be nearly icefree in five years. The three Rome-based agencies—the...

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

December 9, 2007 - ...environmental concerns for many local populations in the developing world. SPOILING THE PARTY In the view of China’s leaders, however, damage to the environment itself is a secondary problem. Of greater concern to them are its indirect effects: the threat it poses to the continuation of the Chinese economic miracle and to public health, social stability, and the country’s international reputation. Taken together, these challenges could undermine the authority of the Communist Party. China’s leaders are worried about the environment’s impact on the economy. Several studies conducted both inside and outside China estimate that environmental degradation and pollution cost the...

Almost all of these e-letters opposed the practices of Reed Elsevier, although two argued that the BMJ’s stance was tainted by conflict of...

Climate change and health: preparing for unprecedented challenges

December 14, 2007 - ...and, more specifically, our collective determination to meet the Millennium Development Goals. Let me express my optimism at the start. The Millennium Declaration and its Goals represent the most ambitious commitment ever made by the international community. These Goals attack the root causes of poverty, and acknowledge that these causes interact in intricate ways. They bring renewed vigour to the multisectoral approach to health advocated by WHO as part of primary health care and the Health for All movement. The Goals champion health as a key driver of socioeconomic progress. In so doing, they elevate the status of the health...

CO2 Australia has been in existence for 3 years, was the first tree planting abatement provider to be accredited under the AGO’s Greenhouse Friendly program and currently operates in WA, Victoria and NSW. They establish tree plantings solely for the carbon value they hold, planting mallee eucalypts in belts on agricultural land, paying the farmer to use the land and establishing a ‘forestry right’ on it for 100 years. James outlined some of the processes involved in becoming accredited with the AGO,...

At the same time the use of the private car carries significant responsibility for the epidemic of obesity and other life style diseases, and its pollutants increase the burden of heart and respiratory disease in the 70 per cent of the Australian public who live in urban communities.
