When Climate Change Meets Sprawl: Why Houston's ‘Once-In-A-Lifetime' Floods Keep Happening

When Climate Change Meets Sprawl: Why Houston's ‘Once-In-A-Lifetime' Floods Keep Happening | Nature Animals humankind | Scoop.it

"Unchecked development remains a priority in the famously un-zoned city, creating short-term economic gains for some, but long term flood risk for everyone."

UNchecked. UN-zoned. Very true.
Deanna Wiist's curator insight, September 12, 8:56 PM

Houston's development boom and reduction of wetlands leave region prone to more severe flooding.  Here is a great map of the change in impervious surfaces in the region from 1940 to 2017--when you combine that with record-breaking rainfall the results are catastrophic.  But a local understanding of place is critical and this viral post--Things non-Houstonians Need to Understand--is pretty good.

[Nouvelle enquête] La longue et douloureuse asphyxie des cochons gazés à l’abattoir de Houdan

[Nouvelle enquête] La longue et douloureuse asphyxie des cochons gazés à l’abattoir de Houdan | Nature Animals humankind | Scoop.it
[Alerte abattoir - nouvelles images] Au coeur de la machine infernale - la longue et douloureuse asphyxie des cochons gazés à l’abattoir de Houdan. Agissons
Patrice H.'s insight:
Ces images, comme vous vous en doutez, l’industrie de la viande préfèrerait que personne ne les voie. Pourtant, elles relèvent pleinement du droit à l’information des consommateurs. Sébastien Arsac, co-fondateur de L214, et un autre militant de l’association, seront jugés lundi prochain par le tribunal correctionnel de Versailles. Interpellés par la gendarmerie en allant récupérer des caméras, ils sont poursuivis pour “atteinte à l’intimité de la vie privée de l’abattoir”... En France, 6 abattoirs – dont celui de Leclerc dans les Côtes d’Armor, celui d’Alès où nous avons déjà enquêté, ou celui qui travaille pour Fleury Michon en Ille-et-Vilaine – pratiquent encore le gazage au CO2. Environ 4 millions de cochons subissent ainsi cette longue asphyxie chaque année en France. On nous dit parfois que les cochons s'endorment avant d'être saignés. Après avoir vu cette vidéo, difficile d’évoquer encore cette belle image réconfortante... Les animaux vivent plutôt un cauchemar éveillé et ce sera leur dernière expérience avant de quitter le monde où ils n’auront vécu qu’une succession de souffrances et de frustrations. Les dispositifs de gazage au CO2 utilisés dans les abattoirs sont des machines infernales, au premier sens du terme. Nous devons les interdire au plus vite !
