How NASA Monitors Climate Change in Two Infographics

By David J. Hill ON Dec 26, 2015 We've all heard about climate change due to rising sea levels and increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide from the burning of fossil fuels. But the question is, how rapidly is the climate actually changing? The recently signed Paris Agreement, in which countries worldwide have committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improving transparency on their progress, will have potential global ramifications on economies and people's health. It's therefore critical that…

Global marine analysis suggests food chain collapse

A world-first global analysis of marine responses to climbing human CO2 emissions has painted a grim picture of future fisheries and ocean ecosystems. Published today in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), marine ecologists from the University of Adelaide say the expected ocean acidification and warming is likely to produce a reduction in diversity and numbers of various…

Read more about the article Our Food Chain is at Risk (Part 2): We are Emptying our Oceans of Fish
A net bulging with tuna and bycatch on the Ecuadorean purse seiner 'Ocean Lady', which was spotted by Greenpeace in the vicinity of the northern Galapagos Islands while using fishing aggregating devices (FADs). Around 10% of the catch generated by purse seine FAD fisheries is unwanted bycatch and includes endangered species of sharks and turtles. The catch of large amounts of juvenile bigeye and yellowfin tunas in these fisheries is now threatening the survival of these commercially valuable species. Greenpeace is calling for a total ban on the use of fish aggregation devices in purse seining and the establishment of a global network of marine reserves LAT 04:09 NORTH / LONG 091:31 WEST

Our Food Chain is at Risk (Part 2): We are Emptying our Oceans of Fish

By William Sosinsky In keeping with the theme of the last article we need to examine how we are managing our oceans for food production and the issues we will soon be facing unless we dramatically change our global management practices. Scientists from monitoring groups as diverse as NOAH, The United Nations, and Stanford University are warning us that if we continue…

Our Food Chain is at Risk (Part 1): Peak Phosphorus

By William Sosinsky One of the main areas of concern in regards to a sustainable food chain is a key component of fertilizer which is essential for cell wall, root, and flower development in plants; Phosphorus. Without this crucial and irreplaceable mineral there would be no “fertilizer” and our current global agricultural model as we know it today would collapse. The loss…

The Tipping Point

As far back as I can remember since we as people began to recognize our potential to destroy our planet’s environment, experts have spoken of a tipping point. This is a theoretical time frame where our collective action would no longer offset catastrophic damage to our biosphere. The reality is we passed that tipping point years ago. The wheels of change are…

We Have to Stop Treating our Waste like Garbage!

It is clear these days that world is being overrun with waste. You cannot help but notice all the articles that talk about landfills being decommissioned as they fill to capacity, or the huge amounts of refuse being shipped to far off places that will still accept those shipments. And those are the good stories. In the developing world, people are essentially…

The Protocols of Sustainable Investment

It occurs to me after watching the world struggle with the issues of a changing environment, energy shortages, and global food security that nobody really seems to know what they are doing and not enough is getting accomplished. In this article, let’s examine the problem of what is currently being done incorrectly and why, and in next month’s issue of the ECOSEED…

Sustainable World Economics are the Key to a Green Future

For most of my life I have watched our natural environment being destroyed with little to nothing of substance being done to halt that destruction. Since I first became aware and sensitive to the negative direction we (humanity) were headed, I have asked myself the same questions again and again. Why isn't anyone trying to stop this insanity? Do people not realize…
