Posted on July 19, by curryja Comments by Judith Curry Right about now would be a good time for people who care about climate change to acknowledge our clean energy crisis. Excerpts from their About page:
Precious Metals Population is not of concern if there are enough resources to go around. Important resources like water of suitable quality for growing crops, drinking, cooking, and cleanliness, fertile soil for growing food and trees, and fuel for warmth and cooking.
Depletion of important resources leads to poverty, disease, malnutrion and often death. Impoverished people are usually forced to destroy their environment in order to survive.
Sustainability is the practice of conservation that will allow people to have enough resources through their life and the lives of future generations.
Sustainability is possible by conserving energy, materials, resources, by new technologies, and by ensuring that the number of births is low enough so that there is enough to go around. Sustainability and Population Karen Gaia Pitts Carrying Capacity and Ecological Footprints Health ministry releases video praising the healthy lifestyle and reproduction of rabbits to encourage couples to have more children November 8,Guardian The Polish government is encouraging citizens to go forth and multiply - like rabbits.
The health ministry of Poland has put out a short YouTube video praising rabbits for producing a lot of offspring. It is the latest step by the conservative government in this mostly Catholic country of 38 million to reverse a shrinking population.
European Union figures show that Poland's birth rate was 1. Portugal had a lower fertility rate, and Spain and Greece were almost as low as Poland. The video is no longer available on YouTube.
Enlarging the population would only make it worse. This demand is met both domestically and by distant locations around the world. On average, Korean residents have an Ecological Footprint eight times larger than what their country's ecosystems can provide biocapacity.
Fisheries are the largest component of Korea's biocapacity. Transitioning to renewable energy is one of the most powerful ways for Korea to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions and Ecological Footprint.
Korea's top trade partners are running ecological deficits or have high and growing Ecological Footprints United States, Japan, Australia, Canada and Russia. Food; personal transportation; and household energy electricity, gas and other fuels are the three top contributors to Korea's Ecological Footprint and are the areas where individuals, governments, and businesses can make the most difference.
Resource security is becoming increasingly important for the world, and for Korea. As one of the most innovative countries, Korea is well positioned to build a resource efficient economy that provides for a thriving society within the means of nature.
Oscar Venter of the University of Northern British Columbia concluded that "We are becoming more efficient in how we use natural resources. Policy makers and researchers can use the maps to identify places that should either be restored or protected.
The report adds, however, that while environmental impacts may not be keeping pace with the growth rate of the world economy, they are frighteningly extensive.
James Watson, co-author of the study from the University of Queensland and Wildlife Conservation Society, explains our current biodiversity crisis by saying: Sanderson, WCS Senior Conservation Zoologist, and lead author of the original Human Footprint study in was encouraged to find that countries with "good governance structures and higher rates of urbanization" could actually grow economically while slightly shrinking their environmental impacts of land use and infrastructure.Arthur Quiller-Couch, ed.
