Maroc: Les meuniers veulent s’affranchir de la subvention de la farine | CIHEAM Press Review | Scoop.it

Les acteurs du secteur estiment que la farine subventionnée n'est ni plus ni moins qu'un cadeau empoisonné. En effet, les meuniers évoluent dans un système hybride marqué par la cohabitation de farine libre et de farine subventionnée. Une situation qui pénalise toute la filière.

Global carbon emissions stood still in 2016, offering climate hope | CIHEAM Press Review | Scoop.it

Global emissions of climate-warming carbon dioxide remained static in 2016, a welcome sign that the world is making at least some progress in the battle against global warming by halting the long-term rising trend.
All of the world’s biggest emitting nations, except India, saw falling or static carbon emissions due to less coal burning and increasing renewable energy, according to data published on Thursday by the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency (NEAA). However other mainly developing nations, including Indonesia, still have rising rates of CO2 emissions.

Olive Oil Times – News, Reviews and Discussion | CIHEAM Press Review | Scoop.it

Pitted olive oils — oils that have had the stone removed before processing — are nothing new; evidence suggests the early Romans produced them. Despite a long history though, it’s fair to say the practice of removing the pits before milling olives has never really caught on commercially.

Existing only from the Nile, Egypt fears disaster from a dam | CIHEAM Press Review | Scoop.it

 The only reason Egypt has even existed from ancient times until today is because of the Nile River, which provides a thin, richly fertile stretch of green through the desert. For the first time, the country fears a potential threat to that lifeline, and it seems to have no idea what to do about it.

Climate change made Lucifer heatwave far more likely, scientists find | CIHEAM Press Review | Scoop.it

The scorching temperatures across Europe’s Mediterranean nations this summer were made at least 10 times more likely by climate change, according to scientists.
Furthermore, without action to tackle global warming, such summer heatwaves with temperatures soaring over 40C will become normal by 2050.
The new analysis by the World Weather Attribution (WWA) group also analysed the particular “Lucifer” heatwave which struck south-east France, Italy and Croatia in early August and found it was made at least four times more likely by human-caused climate change.
