March 3, 2015 - The 21st century is creating a whole new area of expertise and a business opportunity for organizations both private and public focused on mitigating and combating climate change. Here is a brief overview of a few of these. If you know of others please let me know and I will endeavour to write about the work they are doing in this most important field.
February 21, 2015 - By 2050 with more than 9 billion human mouths to feed let alone countless cattle, pigs, chickens and other meat, it is not surprising that food scientists are turning to the most prolific animals on Earth as a good source for protein. We are not talking about two and four-legged creatures, but those with six - insects.
February 17, 2015 - The Global Carbon Capture and Sequestration Institute (GCCS) in its most recent report tells us there are approximately a dozen large-scale CCS projects operating around the world. The total amount of captured carbon dioxide (CO2) amounts to less less than 30 million tons per year.
February 11, 2015 - Yesterday I wrote about Australia's "angry summer." That was 2013 when Australia experienced its hottest on record. The summer that followed in 2014 turned out to be almost as hot, ranking third.
February 10, 2015 - This week, Australia's Prime Minister was besieged by his own political party, surviving a vote of confidence.
February 8, 2015 - In the late Michael Crichton novel, State of Fear, he questions climate change science and weaves a story about a green guerilla resistance movement focused on tearing down modern civilization.
February 7, 2015 - I write a considerable amount about climate change. Why? Because I consider it and runaway human population growth to be the two most significant negative impactors in the 21st century. This week some of us here on Earth once more brought up the topic of geo-engineering our way out of climate change.
February 2, 2015 - We have finally made it to our wintering spot here in Southern Florida where my wife and I plan to spend the next few weeks. Please forgive the hiatus in my postings but this annual migration recharges my batteries every winter and gives me hours on the road to think about subjects of interest to you my readers.
