The 5 mass extinction events that shaped the history of Earth — and the 6th that’s happening now

The 5 mass extinction events that shaped the history of Earth — and the 6th that’s happening now thumbnail

For the last 10,000 years, Earth has been in the midst of yet another extinction event that is rapidly removing animals from our planet. Scientists define a mass extinction as around three-quarters of all species dying out over a short geological time, which is anything less than 2.8 million years, according to The Conversation. Right […]


What Climate Science Tells Us, What It Doesn’t, And Why It Matters

What Climate Science Tells Us, What It Doesn’t, And Why It Matters thumbnail

On January 8, 2014, at New York University in Brooklyn, there occurred a unique event in the annals of global warming: nearly eight hours of structured debate between three climate scientists supporting the consensus on manmade global warming and three climate scientists who dispute it, moderated by a team of six leading physicists from the […]


We must stop flushing our trees down the toilet

We must stop flushing our trees down the toilet thumbnail

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 […]


The Great Reset: Davos Playbook

Girls all over the world, from 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 […]

The Amazon is Likely Emitting More Greenhouse Gases Than It Absorbs, New Study Says

Enviroment

Scientists have predicted for years that at some point the Amazon rainforest, known as “the lungs of the planet,” would be overcome in its ability to scrub carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and could even emit more greenhouse gases than it absorbs. Now, a new study says, it’s probably already happened. The research, published Thursday […]

The Climate Crisis Is Worse Than You Can Imagine. Here’s What Happens If You Try. thumbnail

Peter Kalmus, out of his mind, stumbled back toward the car. It was all happening. All the stuff he’d been trying to get others to see, and failing to get others to see — it was all here. The day before, when his family started their Labor Day backpacking trip along the oak-lined dry creek […]


Global population hit by extreme drought set to double

Enviroment

PARIS: Available freshwater is on track to decline sharply across two-thirds of Earth’s land surface toward the end of the century mostly due to climate change, with the number of people exposed to extreme drought doubling, researchers have reported. Even under a scenario of moderate decline in greenhouse gas emissions, land area scorched by extreme […]


Carmageddon: Hidden War Between Motor Cars and People

Enviroment

There is a silent, ongoing, global war between motor cars and people. It is silence because, though it kills many times more people than armed conflicts and terrorist acts combined. It seldom hits the headlines in the way they do. It is ongoing because it rages and will continue to rage around us day and […]


At current rates of deforestation, civilization will collapse in 20-40 years

Enviroment

Preface.  At current rates of deforestation, forests will be gone in 100-200 years. Long before that, in 20-40 years, the effects will be felt, with a 90% chance of civilization collapse likely. Since it looks like world conventional oil peaked in 2018, I’m putting my money on energy decline as the civilization crasher, but the […]


Why The World Can’t Quit Fossil Fuels

Enviroment

Have the recent pronouncements of the death of oil and reigning renewables been more rhetoric than reality? Yes and no. It’s true that peak oil is now closer than ever, and globally we’re seeing a more earnest effort to decarbonize than ever before, in large part thanks to green stimulus packages for post-COVID economic recovery.

The End of the World as We Know It?

The End of the World as We Know It? thumbnail

How is the world going to end? Polls consistently show that most believe the cause will be environmental. “Climate anxiety” has reached such a fevered pitch among young people across the globe that the Lancet recently issued a special “call to action” to help with the problem. Clinicians have even created “climate anxiety scales” to measure […]

Humans Left Sustainability Behind as Hunter-Gatherers

Enviroment

Many people believe that humans can have a sustainable future by using solar panels and wind turbines. Unfortunately, the only truly sustainable course, in terms of moving in cycles with nature, is interacting with the environment in a manner similar to the approach used by chimpanzees and baboons. Even this approach will eventually lead to […]


The great unravelling

If you’ve ever been around someone who is dying, it may have struck you how strong a person’s lifeforce really is. When my dad was gravely ill, an invisible point of no return was gradually crossed, then suddenly death was in plain sight. We stood back helplessly, knowing that nothing more could be done, that […]


Resource Depletion

How long do most species last before going extinct?

How long do most species last before going extinct? thumbnail

The majestic blue whale has plied the seas for about 4.5 million years, while the Neanderthals winked out of existence in a few hundred thousand years. But are those creatures representative of species overall? How long do species usually last before they go extinct? It turns out the answer we find now could be very […]


The Great Pause Week 34: Dragon Dimming

Enviroment

“Pandemic lockdowns curtailed jet travel, closed shops and schools, and reduced global dimming by more than 20%. So what happened then?“    There was a famous experiment on May 21, 1946 that cost the Manhattan Project physicist Louis Slotin his life. In 2016, Alex Wellerstein revisited it for The New Yorker:   Slotin’s procedure was […]
