POPULATION GROWTH & CLIMATE CHANGE ...

My soul-mate Linnie and I have been happily married since the biologist Paul Ehrlich came to public attention in 1968 with the publication of his book, The Population Bomb. Worries about the potential problems of a soaring global population had boiled and cooled over previous decades. And the issue had become so enmeshed with political decisions that many just wished to ignore it. The warnings of Thomas Malthus, the eighteenth century writer who had had such influence on many thinkers on the problems of uncontrolled population growth, had slipped into the background. But with the current surge in commodity prices around the world the issue of the size of the population is once more rapidly moving up the global agenda. And it is interesting to see this 50-year-old plus perspective.

 
Paul Ehrlich chose to emphasise the simple biological challenges posed by rising populations. And he was strident: “It cannot be overemphasised”, he wrote, “that no changes in behaviour or technology can save us unless we can achieve control over the size of the human population. The birth rate…

Who owns the past?

 These four words conceal a contentious problem.



 Obviously no one owns it in the way that they might own    

 a book about the past. Owning objects from the past can

 certainly be contentious, as the Elgin Marbles reveal. But

 there was a real past, in which real people lived – a few

 who are remembered, most who are forgotten.

A COMMONWEALTH of NATIONS working...

  TOGETHER as [ONE] • COP26: CLIMATE DEAL SOUNDS

  THE DEATH KNELL FOR COAL POWER - Boris Johnson

 

For every day that passes, this conclusion receives further confirmation • "The ruling classes of this world are constitutionally incapable of responding to the catastrophe in any other way than by expediting it. Unfortunately, COP26 did not produce any compelling reasons to revise that conclusion. Less than a week after the end of the summit, the Biden administration held the largest federal offshore drilling auction in US history.

“The administration has more than sufficient authority under the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act to cancel this lease sale.”



There is little to suggest that any other government signing the Glasgow Pact will behave differently

What is the metaverse and Web 3.0 ? ...

At first mention, you may think the metaverse sounds like a fantasy world in the latest futuristic Hollywood blockbuster, and truth be told you are not wrong.

The term was first coined in Neal Stephenson’s 1992 sci-fi novel Snow Crash, in which he described a virtual reality-based successor to the internet.

A few decades later, the 2011 dystopian science fiction novel Ready Player One,by Ernest Cline, also centred around a metaverse called the OASIS, which is accessed with a virtual reality headset and wired gloves to escape a world crumbling by an energy crisis.



ALL of which I would most indefatigably suggest, requires A CHANGE of THINKING

Fast forward to today, and the metaverse is now a hot buzzword in Silicon Valley. It is also tied to the development of Web 3.0, which some believe will be the next chapter of the internet’s existence.…

The Government’s Anti-Corruption Champion...

responsible for implementing the anti-corruption strategy, is John Penrose MP. He is the husband of Baroness Dido Harding – head of the Test and Trace programme. But the intersection of public sector appointments and political party donations has not only been witnessed in relation to the pandemic.

The Byline Intelligence Team has calculated that a quarter of top Conservative donors – those who have donated more than £100,000 to the party – have received a title or a peerage. Of the Conservative Party’s 20 biggest donors since 2010 – those donating more than £1.5 million – 55% (11) have received an honour or a title. Ten were given these perks in the past decade.

A more recent trend, and one catalogued extensively by Byline Times, has been a concerted attempt to appoint Conservative-leaning figures to public bodies. One former Government official …

A STARK WARNING TO MANKIND IN[DEED] !!!

"James Lovelock will go down in history as the scientist who changed our view of the Earth from a barren rock covered with a thin coating of life to a self-organising system that in many ways resembles a single organism. Following a conversation with the novelist William Golding, Lovelock named this self-regulating system after the Greek earth goddess Gaia. Viewed with suspicion by Darwinian fundamentalists, Gaia theory is now widely accepted and used in scientific disciplines. Its implication is that humanity is part of a much larger system that it cannot control, still less master. The Earth's self-regulating processes impose limits on human ambitions, and if humanity acts to destabilise the system, the Earth will readjust in ways that show no regard for human welfare." 



In The Revenge of Gaia - the most important book ever to be published on the environmental crisis - Lovelock applies Gaia theory to climate change. Using the latest scientific findings, he concludes that an abrupt and radical climatic shift is unavoidable. Global heating - as he prefers to describe it…
