  • International cooperation can create recovery from the Aral Sea disaster

    30 October 2014, 7:41 am

    The conference we mentioned last week has produced very hopeful 'green shoots' of hope for financial, agricultural and hydrological solutions to the problems facing the peoples around the Aral Sea. The environmental catastrophe of toxic dust, total loss of…
  • The Global Green Economy Index 2014

    28 October 2014, 10:43 pm

    What is your country doing for the earth's future, its environment and the need to modify our bad habits so that future generations don’t need to suffer? Green economics and perspectives are often what it is all about, so this report could put you straight.
  • Spot (or hear) the vole - in the snow

    28 October 2014, 8:00 pm

    The ways of the prey organism must be known to an efficient predator, and there are no one more deadly that the mustelid race. Fortunately for humans, we don’t have to hide under the snow as one of these hunters searches above. The nearest I can think of is…
  • Our climate change is related to deep ocean currents and glaciations

    26 October 2014, 10:00 pm

    The late Pliocene has a lot in common with our projected temperature rise above two degrees Celsius. Carbon dioxide levels were high then too, so there is comparability which could help us in our quest to get ourselves out of the polluted mess we find…
  • 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…
