Climate Change: beyond mitigation

Climate Change: beyond mitigation

There is no doubt that most of the world has woken up to the fact climate change is a problem and one that’s here to stay unless we act now. So how will the world judge our actions in 200 years? Will we be criticized for knowing everything there was to know about the problem and still doing nothing? Or will we be praised for our fast thinking and action that averted disaster? Here, we take a look at life beyond climate change mitigation, examine where the solutions to our rapidly over-heating planet lie, and reflect on what our world will look like 50 years on, with a population of some 9 billion people. …

Climate Change: a burning issue

Climate Change: a burning issue

Every day, everywhere, it’s getting hotter. The weather is more unpredictable, ice is melting, plants are disappearing and insects are appearing where they shouldn’t. These alarming trends aren’t new. There has been a lot of talk about the need to fight climate change, but disappointingly this has not been matched by action. Recently, however, there have been some changes that may yet herald the beginning of a new era in humanity’s fight against climate change. …

It is now time to turn thoughts and words into sustainable progress. …

Safeguarding the diversity of life: life in the slipknot

Safeguarding the diversity of life: life in the slipknot

Biodiversity is the sum of every living thing around us. It is us. By letting it die we are killing ourselves. Habitat destruction and invasive alien species are considered undesirable side effects of development. That will no longer do. They are unacceptable side effects and they must stop. …

Healthy environments - healthy people: blood and potatoes

Healthy environments - healthy people: blood and potatoes

Human health and biodiversity; the two are fundamentally inseparable. The food we eat, the multitude of pills we swallow for anything from the common cold to cancer all stem from living matter, the sum of which makes up biodiversity. Even oil and gas are nothing more than ancient biodiversity. …

Healthy environments - healthy people: buy yo´ diversity

Healthy environments - healthy people: buy yo´ diversity

Biodiversity is not obscure. Once understood, neither is its importance to human health. We are a part of biodiversity, and in all humility, one might be tempted to say an insignificant part thereof. But clearly that would be a lie. One glance around is enough to confirm the impact humanity is having upon the diversity of life. It is dwindling at our hand and before our very eyes. Yet those eyes at times refuse to see, or when they do, too often turn away. …
