Scientists Warn of "Ecological Armageddon" Amid Waves of Heat and Climate Refugees 30.10.2017 Truthout - All Articles
A dirt berm is maintained along the coast of Utqiaġvik, the northernmost city in Alaska, in an effort to slow seawater intrusion from increasingly severe Arctic storms. (Photo: Dahr Jamail) Scientists are sounding the alarm of an "ecological Armageddon" as insect populations across Germany collapse, wildfires scorch California and Portugal, record heat waves swelter the US late into fall, and 14 million people become climate refugees annually -- including Indigenous residents of Alaska's northern coast. While most of the world is finally acknowledging the dangers of anthropogenic climate disruption, the White House remains willfully clueless. A dirt berm is maintained along the coast of Utqiaġvik, the northernmost city in Alaska, in an effort to slow seawater intrusion from increasingly severe Arctic storms. (Photo: Dahr Jamail) As the summer Arctic sea ice melts and continues to recede further, the fragile coastline resting atop thawing permafrost is made more vulnerable to the warming waters of the ...

Capitalism Exacerbates the Vulnerability of "Extreme Cities" to Climate Change 26.10.2017 Truthout.com
There is a precariousness to urban life in the face of climate change-induced disasters like Hurricane Sandy. Ashley Dawson places Hurricane Sandy in a broader context, weaving together stories of cities around the world that are threatened by climate chaos in her new book, Extreme Cities. Cities, and their natural vulnerabilities, are at the forefront of the coming climate chaos.  An American flag flies near homes that remain damaged and mostly untouched since Superstorm Sandy hit the coastline, May 5, 2013, in Ortley Beach, New Jersey. (Photo: Mark Wilson / Getty Images) Today's big cities are ground zero for the impacts of climate disruption, at risk of floods, cyclones and heat waves. In his new book, Ashley Dawson examines the dangers facing the world's megacities and the urban movements fighting to make city living not just safer, but more fair and equal.

The Myth of the Managed Wildfire: How US Forest Service Policies Perpetuate Deadly Wildfires 26.10.2017 Truthout.com
The idea that wildfires can be controlled is a dangerous and costly myth, promoted in large part by the timber industry, which views wildfires as a waste of economic resources, not the forest's way of rejuvenating itself. Ecologically speaking, fighting wildfires makes about as much sense as fighting hurricanes, yet we spend nearly $3 billion annually on the effort. Tanker helicopters fight a wildfire on October 16, 2017, in Oakville, California. At least 40 people were killed with many are still missing, and at least 5,700 buildings have been destroyed since wildfires broke out a week ago. (Photo: Elijah Nouvelage / Getty Images) Research is clear  that the wildfires the US experienced this year are more widespread and increasingly intense as our climate heats up. Consistent with the US government's head-in-the-sand approach to the climate crisis generally, our national wildfire "management" policy flies in the face of science and reason. If we don't learn to adapt to climate change's growing coastal ...

Support Truthout's mission today by making a tax-deductible donation. A senate appropriations subcommittee, led by Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) will resist the Trump administration's efforts to slash spending for the Environmental Protection Agency and the Interior Department this week. Last summer, Murkowski warned the White House that there was no chance her panel would agree to cut the EPA's $8 billion budget by almost a third. But the budget isn't the only thing that's endangered. The administration is leading a campaign to toss out a growing list of rules and regulations that protect our environment and the all plants and animals that are trying to thrive alongside us.
