  • Hydropower means a lot worldwide.

    24 October 2014, 5:32 am

    How big a dam? The very largest could just be a step too far, with the vast eco-resources of a river destroyed, along with all that depends on the river’s heart-its resident species. Smaller dams mean much less loss of migration opportunity, more room for…
  • United Nations Day, October 24th 2014

    23 October 2014, 4:35 pm

    How to celebrate UN Day? We suggest it is entirely up to you. Sit down and read uplifting material; worry about progress in one part of the world; get up and volunteer in any way you think right; object to one aspect of the organisation just as everybody else…
  • Our ancient ancestors couldn't digest milk

    23 October 2014, 3:48 am

    The modern Eurasian ancestors roamed across Siberia according to a new study, but another paper revealed DNA-enhancing technology using part of prehistoric skulls. We now know roughly when our genes adapted to farming, less sunlight and many other…
  • If you can't stand the heat..

    21 October 2014, 6:45 am

    How well are we doing at restraining the natural forces that threaten us following the effects of anthropogenic global warming? The answer no politician wants is we're not adapting to the blindingly obvious. Cool it, the planet that is. Otherwise we'll emit so…
  • Copulation was invented by ancient fish

    20 October 2014, 10:20 am

    The drive to produce offspring has always been as dominant as the enjoyment of food. Australian scientists have now used Scottish fossils to deduce that Estonian fish evolved a jolly dance that has resulted in much more “fun” in their ancestors!
  • Flood the Pacific islands or don't sell your coal!

    19 October 2014, 9:29 am

    How can we get politics to react to long-term problems, for which the politicians may not even be alive to fully appreciate? The Pacific Islands have an answer, as they are suffering before the great industrial and financial centres start to crumble under…
  • Fracking still rears its ugly head

    17 October 2014, 4:21 am

    We only consider 2 nations here, with their differing thoughts on an industry that provides cheap and easy energy. The worldwide comparative approach might be appropriate to consider just how often fracking leads to consequences that the perpetrators are very…
  • Solutions to the sad case of the Aral Sea

    16 October 2014, 6:04 am

    A conference looks likely to enliven debate on both the Aral Sea’s fate and the need for interventions on environmental problems that are causing international problems for health, ecology and vast pollution.
  • International World Food Day, 2014

    15 October 2014, 3:52 pm

    Green grow the rushes, oh, and the world’s crops, despite all the bad weather that is thrown at them. All because of careful and progressive family farmers.
  • Stilt break records for migration and finding water.

    15 October 2014, 3:05 am

    The wonder of bird migration takes a long while to sink in. Perhaps it’s the payload, but tiny birds still seem able to amaze us with their ability to fly thousands of kilometres (or even miles.) This is a unique Australian endemic bird that seems able to…
  • Horse Sense

    13 October 2014, 4:04 pm

    After the great interest shown by our articles on the recent evolution of dogs, cats and horses, we thought it better to follow these up, rather than spout on about relatively unknown species, much as we’d love to. North Americans love to think that horses…
  • Quagga mussels invade your waterways!

    13 October 2014, 3:31 am

    The UK is about to receive a visit from the infamous quagga mussel. It’s a rock star you won’t like, living in hard substrates and a softie too! Many species such as freshwater fish could be affected, as well as poisoned, while the blockages caused by the…
  • We’re mad about Madagascar.

    11 October 2014, 5:17 am

    How much research flows out of Madagascar, on the lemurs, chameleons and frogs alone. We have to preserve this island and sustain its people in their struggles with nature, including climate change. The age of introspection is over. This is one planet and we…
  • Transformers, but with your house!

    10 October 2014, 4:34 am

    energy efficient houses, carbon neutral, housing associations, IKEA kitchens, financiers, housing tenants, green roof,
  • UNEP-convened Global SCP Clearinghouse: obliging the Consumer Generation with Alternatives

    9 October 2014, 4:17 am

    UNEP have come up with the life-saving solution to efficient practice in a sustainable world. Have a good look.
