Climate Progress, June 10, 2014
-▶  A DUSTY GREENLAND IS SPEEDING UP GLACIAL MELT. 

A paper published in the journal Nature Geoscience suggests that dust particles embedded in Greenland’s massive ice sheet are gathering more heat than the otherwise white, reflective surface would and causing melting to accelerate. The scientists write that “recent warming in the Arctic has induced an earlier disappearance of the seasonal snow cover, uncovering large areas of bare soil and thus enhancing dust erosion.”

Dust absorbs the sunlight and re-radiates it as heat. This causes earlier snowmelt that in turn exposes ice beneath the snow sooner than otherwise would have been expected — creating a feedback loop.

Warren Bennis: The Father of Leadership Development | Wild Resiliency | Scoop.it
Warren Bennis touched so many of us so deeply… from students and consultants, to CEOs and U.S. Presidents.  His depth of mind and presence of character set an example for us all.  A young platoon leader in World War II, a provost and a president at universities, and scholar, Warren [...]

Warren Bennis touched many of us in profoundly deep ways -- myself included. 


His vision to develop "human potential through an integrated approach" to leadership broke new ground.  "He was one of the pioneers to posit that growth and development was based in self-awareness."


Dr. Bennis' work greatly influenced my work and learning in both Dialogue and psychotherapy with the notion of growing the whole person in order to grow the whole leader.  This Forbes article is a tribute to all of the gifts Warren brought to the world -- the man now known as the Father of Leadership Development.

Fact or Fiction?: The Sixth Mass Extinction Can Be Stopped

Fact or Fiction?: The Sixth Mass Extinction Can Be Stopped | Wild Resiliency | Scoop.it
Is the planet undergoing the sixth mass extinction in its history courtesy of the human species?

Via Cathryn Wellner
Larry Glover's insight:

Here's one of the more optimistic articles on the current mass extinction that I've seen. And while still acknowledging:

 "Scientists can't be sure of the current die-off rate, perhaps because much of it is happening to beetles and other insects that are notoriously overlooked. But according to that new study in Science, the total number of such invertebrates fell by half over the past 35 years while the human population doubled. Other recent studies suggest that the current extinction rate is roughly 1,000 times faster than the average pace in Earth's history. That makes this the fastest extinction event on record, even if it is not yet a mass die-off."

Great scoop here via @wildresiliency.  


Totally agree with the following:


Vision is an essential element to making organizations work in meaningful ways but the work needs to be reinforced through the right cultural aspects.


The culture and vision blend:


  • Vision activates action but needs to be reinforced with the culture to incite the right behaviors.
  • Culture empowers people to create, solve, and grow all the while enabling the organization to achieve, build, and realize the vision of what is possible for customers and stakeholders.
  • Vision and culture need to be wrapped together in order to unbind the ability within each team member.

Brain scans link concern for justice with reason, not emotion

Brain scans link concern for justice with reason, not emotion | Wild Resiliency | Scoop.it
People who care about justice are swayed more by reason than emotion, according to new brain scan research. Psychologists have found that some individuals react more strongly than others to situations that invoke a sense of justice — for example, seeing a person being treated unfairly, or with mercy. The new study used brain scans to analyze the thought processes of people with high “justice sensitivity.”
Larry Glover's insight:

This research presents an interesting flip on the 'mushy liberal' image as emotional. Rather, the concern for justice seems to arise 'out of higher cognitive functioning.'

She believes in order to progress everyone needs “to [be able to] speak on any particular issue without being fully prepared. To be flexible and articulate and confident enough,” even when you don’t know everything, because “we can’t know everything.”

How to communicate the scientific consensus on climate change

How to communicate the scientific consensus on climate change | Wild Resiliency | Scoop.it

At present, only one in ten (12%) Americans understand that 90% or more climate scientists have concluded that human-caused climate change is happening. Recent research has found that this public misunderstanding about the degree of scientific consensus is highly consequential: public perceptions of the scientific consensus appear to influence public beliefs that global warming is happening, human-caused and a serious problem that requires public action and legislative support. Our new paper offers some practical recommendations on how to effectively communicate the scientific consensus. - See more at: http://environment.yale.edu/climate-communication/article/how-to-communicate-the-scientific-consensus-on-climate-change#sthash.UJ2FVhsQ.dpuf

There's no need to worry that the world's resources are running out, writes Matt Ridley | Wild Resiliency | Scoop.it
Ecologists worry that the world's resources come in fixed amounts that will run out, but we have broken through such limits again and again, writes Matt Ridley. How innovation improves the environment.
Larry Glover's insight:

OK, I admit to occasionally listening to Rush Limbaugh for a few minutes once a month or so. Seems good to try and get inside the head of such folks, good to try and see the world through the eyes of those who see the world so differently than I do.


Like Mr. Ridley, the author here who attempts to make a case for pushing forward full steam ahead, as though this 'forward thrust' at all costs is not what got us where we are and always will do so. 


I find the article oddly interesting, narrow minded for the absence of the spiritual value of 'nature' provides us, twisted in language and thought and challenging in the invitation to think outside my worldview. For example:

"In many respects, greater affluence and new technology have led to less human impact on the planet, not more. Richer people with new technologies tend not to collect firewood and bushmeat from natural forests; instead, they use electricity and farmed chicken—both of which need much less land."


This leaves me wondering both what planet the author is living on and if he's not yet heard of the new geological age acknowledging Man's collective biogeophysical impact on it: the Anthroprocene.


Mr. Ridley closes with the usual appeal to the god of innovation for salvation from ourselves. Now, I'm a believer in innovation; we need all we can get. And that too is Nature's strategy during times of rapid change. So we need it.


And I believe there is something else we need even more: to remember we are part and parcel of a larger whole to whom we owe our own existence and allegiance. The human spirit will be less for the absence of the polar bear.... The preservation of our fellow travelers on spaceship earth makes not just good sustainability thinking. It makes for good human flourishing and thrivability.

Chronic stress in early life causes anxiety, aggression in adulthood, neurobiologists find | Wild Resiliency | Scoop.it
In experiments to assess the impacts of social stress upon adolescent mice, both at the time they are experienced and during adulthood, a laboratory team conducted many different kinds of stress tests and means of measuring their impacts. The research indicates that a 'hostile environment in adolescence disturbs psychoemotional state and social behaviors of animals in adult life,' the team says.

This research reports both an innate resilience to early life stress and latent biological and behavioral effects.
