David Attenborough: zoos should use peepholes to respect gorillas’ privacy

The 90-year-old television presenter spoke out after a gorilla briefly escaped on Thursday from its enclosure in London Zoo. Attenborough said the incident was “hardly surprising” when animals are subjected to intrusion. …

Richard Conniff – New Green Challenge: How to Grow More Food on Less Land

For researchers trying to figure how to feed a world of 10 billion people later in this century, the great objective over the past decade has been to achieve what they call “sustainable intensification.” It’s an awkward term, not least because of conventional agricultural intensification’s notorious record of wasting water, overusing fertilizers and pesticides, and polluting habitats. But the ambition …

It’s All About Food – Jim Hicks & Colleen Holland – 08.18.15

Part I: J. Morris Hicks, 4Leaf Guide to Vibrant Health
J. Morris HicksJ. Morris Hicks is the author of Healthy Eating, Healthy
World and the creator of the 4Leaf concept. Shortly after learning all about the many alarming truths regarding our food choices in 2003, Jim realized that there needed to be a better way to explain healthy eating to the world. The “V” words, at best, convey more information about what you’re avoiding than what you ARE eating. He began developing the 4Leaf concept in 2009 and introduced it to the public in his 2001 book, co-authored with his son Jason.

Having concluded that our food choices hold the key to the sustainability of our civilization, he has made them his #1 priority- exploring all avenues for influencing humans everywhere to move back to the natural, plant-based diet for our species – in the interest of promoting health, hope and harmony on the planet Earth.

I’m going to climate denial school: My first week inside the science of anti-science – LINDSAY ABRAMS

Tuesday, for me and some ten thousand classmates, was the first day of climate denial school. Or, should I say, anti-climate denial school. We’d all signed up for Denial101x, a new, six-week MOOC (that’s “massive open online course,” for all you education luddites) aimed at making sense of this whole phenomenon — and at giving us the tools to fight deniers, so …

Climate Genocide

The planet has warmed by 0.85C since the industrial revolution, or since 1880, according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which is the baseline for measurement by the scientific community. That doesn’t seem like much; it’s such a small number, less than one (1). But, remarkably, the increase of 0.85C happened within 150 years, whereas historically it normally …
