Famine Early Warning System Warns 70+ Million May Need Emergency Food in 2017

The combined magnitude, severity, and geographic scope of anticipated emergency food assistance needs during 2017 is unprecedented in recent decades. Given persistent conflict, severe drought, and economic instability, FEWS NET estimates that 70 million people, across 45 countries, will require emergency food assistance this year. Four countries – Nigeria, Somalia, South Sudan, and Yemen – face a credible risk of Famine (IPC Phase 5). In order to save lives, continued efforts to resolve conflict and improve humanitarian access are essential. In addition, given the scale of anticipated need, donors and implementing partners should allocate available financial and human resources to those areas where the most severe food insecurity is likely.[...] Read More

Earth May Be The Only Inhabitable Planet Ever Found

For science and technology geeks, this is interesting news – Planet Earth may be the only planet that can harbor life, ever. If this is true, this makes Earth particularly unique and special and will dash the hopes of ever finding organic life forms anywhere else.

The reason is the liquid-water phase that comes from a warm planet. For organic life to exist, a planet must not be too hot or too cold – and it must have liquid water. It was previously thought that this would occur in what is now known as the “Goldilocks zone” where a planet is at just the right distance from a nearby star to warm up and melt water, but it turns out that more then this is required.[...] Read More

Young People’s Burden

There is a lot of important information in this video.

The only hope for a human-survivable Earth is technological removal of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere – which in itself will create more carbon emissions. Borrowing from Peter to pay Paul is a situation we never wanted to be in.

6C- 8°C Temperature Increase Projections For Asia – Exceeding Survivable Wet Bulb Temperatures

A watered-down report for Asia contains this misleading title – “Unabated climate change would reverse the development gains in Asia

Under a business-as-usual scenario, a 6 degree Celsius temperature increase is projected over the Asian landmass by the end of the century. Some countries in the region could experience significantly hotter climates, with temperature increases in Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and the northwest part of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) projected to reach 8 degree Celsius, according to the report, titled “A Region at Risk: The Human Dimensions of Climate Change in Asia and the Pacific.[...] Read More

Contradictions Within Science

Desdemona has an article title “Global sea level rise accelerates since 1990 – Greenland ice largely responsible for the accelerating pace of sea-level rise

“The annual rate of sea level rise increased to 3.3 millimeters (0.13 inch) in 2014 – a rate of 33 centimeters (13 inches) if kept unchanged for a century”

It is this kind of bogus reporting that continues to deceive a uncaring public. The take away is “oh, it’s just 13 inches over a hundred years, no big deal” when the REAL sea level increase will be over 9 feet (108 inches) in that time period.[...] Read More

Climate vs. Capitalism

The world’s climate is a natural system created by the Earth’s absorbed and radiated energy. Capitalism is a human system exploiting Earth’s resources.

They’re mutually exclusive. Capitalism is predatory while still being totally dependent upon the Earth and its resources.

In the debate of “Climate .vs. Capitalism”, it’s long been obvious that capitalism has won the war for the Earth.[...] Read More

Burning Fossil Fuels Almost Ended All Live On Earth

This is a pretty decent article, very informative: Burning Fossil Fuels Almost Ended All Life on Earth

Even this author gets it. Hardly any plant life will exist above 40C – which means no food for anything else. Uh oh, humans too? Yes.

This is part of the true narrative that is being continually suppressed. The oil industry has long known, more so than anybody else that the extraction and burning of fossil fuels was the worst thing humans could probably do (a nearly endless number of documents and papers exist here). But none of this evidence gathered over many decades seemed to matter, the practice of oil extraction and burning was extolled throughout the entire world, leading to planet to the edge of extinction.[...] Read More
