WOMEN'S KNOWLEDGE: THREE REASONS WE WON'T SOLVE CLIMATE CHANGE WITHOUT IT

WHY IS IT SO HARD TO GET PEOPLE TO TALK ABOUT WOMEN AND CLIMATE CHANGE? Women in the developing world are amongst those most vulnerable to climate change. Policies to curb climate change will be unsuccessful if women have no opportunity to influence decision-making,  http://www.eco-business.com/opinion/why-it-so-hard-get-people-talk-about-women-and-climate-change/

ARE WOMEN OUR BEST HOPE FOR FIGHTING CLIMATE CHANGE? 

The need for women’s voices to be heard becomes most vividly apparent when considering the fact that indigenous women are struggling to protect and retain control of the very natural resources that they depend on — which are directly threatened by climate change.

“We are seeing a sort of ecological violence that highly affects indigenous women,” Lopez tells me. “The damage that corporations are inflicting on natural resources have an impact on the life of indigenous women — a very, very direct impact. We see a lot of sexual and reproductive health problems specific to indigenous women — and not men — that are linked to pesticides, toxins, contamination of water. If environmental rights are not guaranteed, the human rights of indigenous women are not going to be guaranteed, either.”

BUILDING UNITY AND SOLIDARITY TO EFFECT A SYSTEM CHANGE. Women from all the corners of the Southern African region descended on Bulawayo to participate in a parallel of the SADC Heads of State Summit, the People Summit. They have converged to share their experiences on how they have been affected either by decisions made by governments with little consultations with the people or the inherited colonial agro-mining complex, which continues to grab land for extractive purposes. More importantly, the women have gathered to build and strengthen their solidarity, forge strong alliances and commit to the struggle to push for a system of changehttp://viacampesina.org/en/index.php/news-from-the-regions-mainmenu-29/1649-sadc-building-unity-and-solidarity-to-effect-a-system-change

pdjmoo's curator insight, June 18, 2013 4:34 AM

Common sense tells us that growing biofuels on arable land for fuel can, at the most, only provide us with a small percentage of so-called renewable fuel.   It takes up huge acreage of good land for food; often from deforestation; it is constantly being harvested, not allowing natural biodiversity to re-establish itself; it requires water; pesticides, chemicals, fertilizers; it is energy intensive to process and transport; and it carries nice, hefty subsidies (as does wind) for investment and bottom-line.   But it is not cost-effective when all is taken into account and t is dependent upon the weather and climate change is coming in fast. So let's stop with the public relations spin and tell it like it is.  It is a boondoggle that will fade as the subsidies are withdrawn.

Limiting how much soot and methane reaches the atmosphere using existing technologies could save nearly five million lives every year, and vastly boost global crop yields, scientists report.

Controlling atmospheric levels of these pollutants could also slow global warming by around half a degree by 2050.

▶  CLIMATE CHANGE, CORAL REEFS, DEFORESTATION AND DENGUE.

The 21st century will present gloomy challenges for Costa Rica and the rest of Latin America, such as the collapse of wildlife habitats, animal extinction, water scarcity and the spread of disease in an already vulnerable population.

The United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) laid out this forecast on March 31, as one of its region-by-region follow-ups to the September global assessment on climate change. The reports collect over 12,000 peer-reviewed scientific papers looking at climate’s future impact on environments and society, with the intention of preparing regional leaders to adapt.

Leading spiritual teacher Thay suggests that our search for fame, wealth, power and sexual gratification provides the perfect refuge for people to hide from the truth about the many challenges facing the world. Worse still, our addiction to material goods and a hectic lifestyle provides only a temporary plaster for gaping emotional and spiritual wounds, which only drives greater loneliness and unhappiness..... http://www.guardian.co.uk/sustainable-business/zen-master-thich-nhat-hanh-love-climate-change

A GAME CHANGER? Crowdsourced Website Documents World's Entire Food System | CLIMATE CHANGE WILL IMPACT US ALL | Scoop.it

A new, crowd-sourced website plans to document every angle of the food system. Given its stated aim of documenting "the entire food system", and given that ANYONE can upload photos and tell the story of their food, it seems like there is an opportunity for activists to tell the stories of the industrial food system through this platform too.

Looking into the future of agriculture in a changing climate

EUROPEAN REVIEW OF AGRICULTURAL ECONOMICS - Looking into the future of agriculture raises three challenging questions: How can agriculture deal with an uncertain future? How do local vulnerabilities and global disparities respond to this uncertain future? How should we prioritise adaptation to overcome the resulting future risks?
