Why RIO+20 Failed

Why RIO+20 Failed | Conscious Travel | Scoop.it

Eisentain's post = "In aspiring toward sustainable growth, then, the Rio participants carried an irreconcilable contradiction with them into the conference. Its failure was assured — not because of the commonly cited reason that it is impossible to gather 50,000 bureaucrats for a week and get anything done. Well, OK, because of that, yes, but the contradictions run deeper. Given the way that growth is defined in our current system, sustainable growth is impossible."

What the new 2011 EIA oil supply data shows

Very informative article by Gail Tverberg explaining why oil supply is tight and prices high.

 

"On balance, it would appear that at best, oil production in the near future will be virtually flat, leading to more spiking of oil prices and greater world economic problems. Another possibility is that world production will begin to decline. The likelihood of decline would appear to be increased if more oil exporters encounter political disruptions, or if the world enters a major recession leading to an oil price decline."

Nation now 'indifferent' to environment | Conscious Travel | Scoop.it

Australians are effectively indifferent to global and societal issues, rating these significantly lower. What we see in these results is a picture of a relatively conservative society concerned with local issues that influence its members' daily lives. People's concerns about industrial pollution, climate change, renewable energy and depletion of energy resources plummeted when compared with an identical study in 2007

Saving Biodiversity: A $300 Billion-a-year Challenge: Scientific American

Saving Biodiversity: A $300 Billion-a-year Challenge: Scientific American | Conscious Travel | Scoop.it

Saving biodiversity -- the vast and essential variety of the natural world -- will be expensive, at an estimated $300 billion a year for the next eight years. But losing it would cost even more, in terms of disease, hunger, poverty and diminished resilience to climate change, according to the new chief of the U.N. Convention on Biological Diversity.
