More news that many will bury their heads deep in the sand and ignore. The religious will say it's because we are going against god's laws and the big penis is punishing us. This rhetoric will only exacerbate the problems. I have joined NPG but doubt it will do any good. We can't even cut down our consumption of meat to help alleviate the problems and never mind the hard things. The population is growing some 86 million net a year (1 US every 3 years) and we never hear about that as economists say we need continued growth. The population problem comes from all sources. I really feel sorry for the young people (40,000 + demonstrated in Amsterdam in protest about the inaction on Climate Change. This came out 5 years ago and I presented it during a filming of some environmental from a local transitions group. They denied it, of course.
Well... Scientists have made another study...
Which politician is interested in what scientists have to say?
A senior European politician once said "We all know what has to be done, but we do not know how to get reelected after we have done the right thing".
French President Macron raised the tax on carbon fuels a little bit last octobre, and this triggered the "yellow vest" movement that has been rocking the French boat since then
That I will have to agree wirh completely. We consume a big chunk of good resources only because it's easier and/or cheaper than smart planning, recycle, etc. The culture of throw it away and buy a new one keeps creating an enormous amount of waste that will caught up with us faster than we think. At least, waste reduction, proper disposal and recycle is something we could control much better.
Link is good. Have to say, I hadn't seen, and don't quite see why, this is separate from climate change - many of the points made are understood widely to be part and parcel of the same thing. Perhaps the authors think more reaction can be gained from having separate issues, I'd have guessed the opposite.
I don't know what article says, but I can only guess that with atomic decay something may take a long time for decline to effect the entirety of the elements. I understand lead is half life of uranium but what is half life of lead? Would we expect someday that all of the bigger elements are decayed into the little elements and there be less possibility or variety of chemical reactions fir compounds and such?
