Carbon Civilisation and the Energy Descent Future

Carbon Civilisation and the Energy Descent Future thumbnail

Just as the bird’s nest, the badger’s lodge and the bees’ hive require investments of energy for their construction and maintenance, so too with human settlements. Taken to the extremes of scale and intricacy, settlements in the form of cities constitute humanity’s most energy-intensive creations. In fact, cities might be viewed as meta-creations that enable […]

How to save the world from ‘perfect storm’

How to save the world from ‘perfect storm’ thumbnail

Global warming is just one example of a problem that does not recognise national boundaries. Pandemics, migration, extremism, nuclear proliferation are some of the other problems that would be unresponsive to nationalist solutions. Someone has to rise to the occasion. The subcontinent is, according to previous US Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, “the most […]


Cities with no water

Enviroment

Water scarcity is a condition that surfaces when water resources are insufficient to fulfil people’s usage demands. For any region or country, water scarcity occurs if the availability of water is less than 1,000 m3/person/year. This is among the most serious problems that the world is currently facing. The reasons for this scarcity are surprisingly […]


A Hidden Radioactive Heat Source Seems To Be Melting Antarctica from Below

Enviroment

When it comes to measuring ice loss at the poles, and predicting what might happen next, scientists need as much accurate data as they can get – and a new study suggests there’s a big source of geothermal heat underneath East Antarctica that we haven’t yet factored into our calculations. Ice in this area appears […]

How our food system is eating away at nature, and our future thumbnail

As you eat your next meal, ask yourself if you really know what you’re eating – not just the ingredients or where they came from, but what has gone into them. How much land was needed? How much water was used? How much energy was required? We need to ask ourselves these questions, because how […]
