A 1,000 Year Drought is Hitting the West

A 1,000 Year Drought is Hitting the West thumbnail

The United States and many other parts of the world are reeling under the impacts of severe drought. One possible solution is the desalination of seawater, but is it a silver bullet? The Western United States is currently experiencing what one paleoclimatologist called “potentially the worst drought in 1,200 years.” The region has had many […]


IPCC report is ‘code red for humanity’

IPCC report is ‘code red for humanity’ thumbnail

Human activity is changing the climate in unprecedented and sometimes irreversible ways, a major UN scientific report has said. The landmark study warns of increasingly extreme heatwaves, droughts and flooding, and a key temperature limit being broken in just over a decade.

Welcome to the Climate Apocalypse. (It will get worse.)

Enviroment

Maybe it was the unprecedented floods in Europe and China that did it. Perhaps it was the deathly heat dome in the Pacific Northwest, or the massive wildfires stretching across more than a million acres of the West. Or maybe it was closer to home — the record-hot June; the rain-soaked July; the smoke-tinged skies […]

Everyone Wants to Sell the Last Barrel of Oil thumbnail

A final victory last week over the Keystone XL pipeline is a reminder that fighting particular fossil-fuel projects is a necessary strategy if the climate is to be saved. The defeat of Keystone XL doesn’t mean that Canada’s vast tar-sands project, which is generally regarded as the largest industrial project in the world, is over, […]

An Inconvenient Truth: EVs May Offer A “Negligible” CO2 Difference From ICE Vehicles thumbnail

Are the carbon footprints of EVs really as drastically lower than that of internal combustion engine vehicles? When considering the amount of carbon and CO2 created from assembling lithium ion batteries, one firm thinks the difference could be “negligible”. Such was the topic of a new blog post by natural resource investors Goehring & Rozencwajg (G&R), a “fundamental […]

Humans Are Quietly Going Extinct

Humans Are Quietly Going Extinct thumbnail

It’s not the hostage situation of climate change, racial equality, or police reform. It isn’t merely a new coronavirus or nuclear war. This overlooked research makes all of those issues meaningless. The end of human procreation is right around the bend with a target date of 2045 if human fertility continues its race to the […]

Our destructive habit of wiping instead of washing our derrieres is having a devastating impact on what remains of our precious biodiversity-rich old-growth boreal forests and tropical rainforests. It’s estimated that only 30 per cent of the world’s population uses bathroom tissue to clean their bottoms. The rest of the world uses water or soft […]


China is out-polluting the world

Enviroment

They say climate change is a global issue, something that the entire world is responsible for. But for more that two centuries, western countries went on a pollution spree. The west was a powerhouse of emmissions with its trains, factories, oil refineries and much more. Most of the pollution we see today is from that […]


Peak Water: Are we Running out of a Critical Resource?

Peak Water: Are we Running out of a Critical Resource? thumbnail

  “Peak Water” is an idea that has been going in parallel with that of “Peak Oil.” Both assume that the production of limited resources, fossil fuels and fossil water, will follow a “bell shaped” curve. The production peak of liquid fuels may have been passed during the past few years. About “peak water” the […]

Japan Decides To Dump One Million Tons Of Radioactive Fukushima Water Into The Pacific; IAEA Approves

Enviroment

We live in a bizarre world: one where the the Keystone XL pipeline must be shut in case of a hypothetical (and extremely unlikely) leak, but where Japan is allowed to dump over one million tons of radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean. Actually, it’s either bizarre or simply exposing just how profoundly hypocritical, self-serving […]

Since there are no reported fuel shortages in Europe, it can't be claimed that #PeakOil has anything to do with our problems here But the lack of meaningful funding in renewable infrastructure over the last decade leaves us perilously exposed to any and all interruption in supply

Jason premieres “Tessera,” a track from the first ever Hoavi album, out October 8 on #PeakOil underscoremusicmagazine.com/premiere-hoavi…

@peterwells79 @Ogilvie_CJ Neither. We will see fewer journeys in general as energy supply diminishes, it's just the limitations on the physical world that #peakoil presents. The conversation we should have is how we plan #degrowth to maintain a society respecting life and avoiding collapse

@BRCWCo @Ogilvie_CJ I'm not expressing judgment on #HS2. I wouldn't be building new roads either tbh. The point is, we are facing a diminishing supply of total available energy for the first time in human history. Lots of projects won't be completed because it will be physically impossible #peakoil
