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...

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...

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...

Clean Energy For Eternity and Matthew Nott

March 9, 2009 - ...read whatever I could get my hands on regarding climate change. I read what the sceptics and deniers had to say. I read what the politicians, the economists and scientists were saying, and a clear pattern emerged. There is some uncertainty in the science of climate change. If the planet is warming, why was 1998 (according to the Hadley Institute) the hottest year ever recorded (or 2005 according to NASA). Are we in fact starting to see a cooling trend since 1998? Sea levels may be rising, but they have risen before. Sea level has been 30 meters higher than...

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...

A call for publishers to declare their conflicts of interest

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...

Now it’s a Climate Emergency!

April 17, 2008 - ...please let us have your views Editor Now it’s a Climate Emergency! by Martin Williams The trouble with climate change is it’s just so big and blurry. Most people know it’s an issue, but find the science too overwhelming to take more than a passing interest. They just assume that governments will do what’s needed to deal with it. But the more I’ve looked into it, the more I’ve come to realise that we simply don’t have the systems in place to cope with such an unprecedented problem using politics-as-usual. Much of the information governments receive is from lobbyists –...

The Case for Young People and Nature: A Path to a Healthy, Natural, Prosperous Future

May 23, 2011 - ...overwhelming evidence, governments and the fossil fuel industry continue to propose that all fossil fuels must be exploited before the world turns predominantly to clean energies. If governments fail to adopt policies that cause rapid phase-down of fossil fuel emissions, today’s children, future generations, and nature will bear the consequences through no fault of their own. Governments must act immediately to significantly reduce fossil fuel emissions to protect our children’s future and avoid loss of crucial ecosystem services, or else be complicit in this loss and its consequences. …..continued .

Like many other government decisions cost cutting on the product leaves others with the tab be it health, cost of living or green house emissions. These matters are complicated; the worry is that many politicians will not grasp the issues as they fail to do with other complex systems like the River Murray or climate change science.

Forest and Biodiversity Update November 2012

December 4, 2012 - There has been much happening over the past month regarding Australia’s precious forests and more widely regarding our unique biodiversity.
