Clock is ticking in race to slow carbon dioxide emissions, scientists warn

"...Even this incredibly ambitious pathway — referred to as the “SSP1-1. 9 scenario” in the latest generation of climate models — would still see global warming overshoot 1. 5 degrees Celsius by the middle of the century, although the temperature would then drop back below this level by 2100..."

Drought in East Africa and the Emergence of the Climate Refugee

"...Since late 2020, severe droughts in East Africa during the last three rainy seasons have put much of the wildlife and the lives of millions in Somalia, Kenya, and Ethiopia at risk. This has been the worst case of regional drought since 2011, and it is expected to last until mid-2022. In many regions of East Africa, civilians rely heavily on livestock to survive, and in some of these areas around 70% of livestock have died due to lack of water..."

Why it’s time for a more sustainable growth metric than GDP Corporate Knights

"...Although research into calculating GEP is only in its infancy, it attempts to place a monetary value on things like clean water, soil quality, food security, healthcare and the culturally-significant landscapes that contribute to our happiness. In other words, GEP assigns a dollar value to the work of bees who act as nature’s pollinators, bogs that sequester carbon, and the stimulating effect nature has on our mental health..."

FOREST INK: Learn from the past to make a better future

"...Bill McKibben describes how our industrial approach to food production needs to change to one that is more durable, sturdy, stable, hardy and robust rather than the fast growth oriented approach and high energy dependent approach of the past. The era of mega farms lead to more people being in prison than worked on farms which has been reversing with more people going into smaller organic operations..."
