"Energy is what keeps this game going. We are involved in a Faustian bargain—selling our economic souls for the luxurious life of the moment, but sooner or later the price has to be paid." Government says 36 states will face water shortages.
Among the many advantages are the fact that biofiltration is environment friendly technology, resulting in the complete degradation by oxidation of toxic pollutants to water and carbon dioxide without generating a residual waste stream.
he researchers found that Roundup caused a 70 per cent decline in amphibian biodiversity and an 86 per cent decline in the total mass of tadpoles.
“The raging monster upon the land is population growth. In its presence, sustainability is but a fragile theoretical construct. To say, as many do, that the difficulties of nations are not due to people but to poor ideology and land-use management
Paul Ehrlich said, “Few problems are less recognized, but more important than, the accelerating disappearance of the earth's biological resources. In pushing other species to extinction, humanity is busy sawing off the limb on which it is perched.”
‘Endless increase’ as a normal aspect of their daily lives. Their paradigm will not be tolerated by Mother Nature much longer. Dr. Albert Bartlett, (www.albartlett.org), said, “Continued growth past maturity for any entity becomes obesity."
What would the United States look like without bats? As winter approaches, biologists seek new methods and technologies to help control a potentially devastating ecological disaster
Over one billion people lack safe water, and three billion lack sanitation; eighty per cent of infectious diseases are waterborne, killing millions of children each year.
So an industrial accident has blanketed your countryside in millions of cubic feet of caustic sludge. Now what?
The idea behind the “Best Practices” barrage is to end the knowledge that has been passed from one generation to the next about how to manage lands, crops and animals and/or how to harvest, store and preserve food supplies. This is a collective know
The United States faces THE single greatest issue of its existence in the 21st century. “What is it?” you ask. Top environmental experts respond, “Overpopulation!” We ignore, evade and suppress this issue at every level in America.
The Obama administration is lifting the moratorium on deep-water oil drilling -- put in place after the Gulf oil spill disaster -- for operators who comply with tough new rules and regulations, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar announced Tuesday. "T
But then you hear what Dr. Albert Bartlett calls ‘innumerates’, (intellectually credentialed persons that remain mathematically illiterate), tell us that the whole human race can live in the State of Texas.
In my last post, I noted that industry and government economists alike have consistently overestimated the cost of air-quality regulations. Despite that well-established record of inaccuracy, every new round of apocalyptic projections is taken as gos
Thanks to a joint investigation from academics and the Department of Homeland Security, the culprit in the Case of the Honeybee Killer has been found.
A dramatic technique for mining oil and natural gas called hydraulic fracturing is under fire. Here’s why
Dublin's newly opened (and creatively named) Convention Centre Dublin is the first officially recognized carbon-neutral convention center in the world (even ahead of the dice-house).
The results showed that oxygen supply was the major bottleneck, or limiting factor, in the field that prevented further decomposition of the oil. The scientists used data from the research to postulate a simple treatment scheme that would involve
Hungary's toxic sludge spill, which has killed 4 people, reached the Danube river Thursday, threatening to contaminate the waterway's ecosystem. Water alkalinity, a measure of river contamination, was already above normal in the major waterway
The White House blocked efforts by federal scientists to tell the public just how bad the Gulf oil spill could have been, according to a panel appointed by President Barack Obama to investigate the worst offshore oil spill in U.S. history.
Although the British organization which created an advertisement depicting the gruesome murder of its conservative opponents has since apologized and removed the ad from its website, American environmentalists have stayed largely quiet about the affa
The U.K. government released a gruesome 4-minute TV ad depicting global warming skeptics being literally blown to pieces after their tree-hugging friends insist they’re under “no pressure” to modify their carbon consumption.
When I saw this video, I could have sworn it was making fun of leftists on purpose. I was wrong.
This isn't even suppose to be funny. If I were a child I would see this as a direct threat of death for non-compliance. As an adult I see it as propaganda for a Global Carbon Tax/Control. ("There's a brilliant idea in the air",... and you better agre
In a nutshell: conservation biologists considered a perplexing problem -- the slow but steady unraveling of the Yellowstone ecosystem -- figured out what was causing it, and then proposed a bold solution that worked even better than expected.
Professor Ralph Keeling of Scripps Institute is worried. In fact, he's very worried. According to the data Keeling's collected since 1989 the world is running out of breathable air--and the rate that it's losing oxygen is now on the verge of ac
"You Americans have lived an artificially high standard of living for a long time," a man working one our jobs outsourced to India wrote me. "It’s time you Americans drop to the poverty levels of the rest of the Third World."
The green prairie that used to surround his tent has become a brown desert. All that is left of the grasslands here are yellowing blotches on a stony surface riddled with rodent holes. It is the same across much of this plateau, which encompasses an
At this point, it's impossible to tell whether hypoxia (low oxygen) from Big Ag's fertilizer runoff (more about that here) or toxins from BP's oil and dispersants killed the fish, or if some unholy conspiracy between the two performed the deed.
