RIO+20 base document needs to take the planet's limits into consideration | Agência FAPESP | Imagem Agronegócio | Scoop.it

The document, however, should emphasize the principle that the planet has a natural limit—a central concept for sustainable development—in a more clear and objective manner. Such is the opinion of Carlos Alfredo Joly, head of the Policies and Thematic Programs Department (DEPPT), Secretary of Policies and Research and Development Programs (SEPED) for the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MCTI) and coordinator of the BIOTA-FAPESP program.

Peak Meat: U.S. Meat Consumption Falling

Peak Meat: U.S. Meat Consumption Falling | Imagem Agronegócio | Scoop.it

"U.S. meat consumption has peaked. Data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture show that meat eating across the country fell from the 2004 high point of 184 pounds (83 kilograms) per person to 171 pounds in 2011. Early estimates for 2012 project a further reduction in American meat eating to 166 pounds, making for a 10 percent drop over the eight-year period. For a society that lives high on the food chain, this new trend could signal the end of meat’s mealtime dominance." (Source: Earth Policy Institute)

Panorama Espacial: Imagens de satélites em desastres naturais | Imagem Agronegócio | Scoop.it

Filiado ao International Charter “Space and Major Disasters”, o Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas Espaciais (INPE) recebe especialistas das agências espaciais europeia, inglesa e canadense que representam esse consórcio de instituições para fornecimento de dados de satélites em situação de catástrofe.

De 5 a 7 de abril, a comitiva do International Charter tem a oportunidade de conhecer os projetos de satélites e as instalações do Laboratório de Integração e Testes (LIT) e do Centro de Rastreio e Controle (CRC), em São José dos Campos, e do Centro de Previsão do Tempo e Estudos Climáticos (CPTEC) e do Centro de Dados de Sensoriamento Remoto (CDSR), em Cachoeira Paulista.

O objetivo do International Charter é fornecer um sistema unificado de recepção e disseminação de dados de satélite para usuários autorizados em localidades que foram afetadas por desastres naturais.

“Os dados devem ser distribuídos com o compromisso de ajudar a mitigar os efeitos que esses desastres naturais ou tecnológicos possam causar para a vida humana e em suas propriedades”, comenta Ivan Barbosa, chefe da Divisão de Geração de Imagens do INPE.

Can science feed seven billion people? | Imagem Agronegócio | Scoop.it

"By 2050, an extraordinary nine billion people are expected to call Earth home. But these are milestones we cannot yet afford to celebrate, because as the population swells, our ability to feed everyone diminishes. Globally, one billion people are undernourished at present, especially in sub-Saharan Africa and Asia."

Military and Human Geography – A Cross-Examination of Essential Knowledge

Military and Human Geography – A Cross-Examination of Essential Knowledge | Imagem Agronegócio | Scoop.it
Knowledge and expertise of military geography is a critical factor in analyzing the enemy. Military geography of a specific region is the discipline regarding geographic aspects that affect military planning and the execution of operations. In addition, this discipline is divided into several sub-classes of study: cultural, economic, political, and physical geography. Each one of the areas of study establishes the base for knowledge of a region or area. The more expertise of a geographic region, the better suited an analyst will be in order to analyze raw intelligence and apply it to an analysis. Outcomes regarding past U.S. conflicts have been determined by regional knowledge of military geography and have ultimately formulated standards of knowledge for today’s intelligence to be successful.
