Toward an Ecologically Based Post-Capitalism: Interview With Novelist Kim Stanley Robinson 17.3.2018 Truthout.com
To get through the climate change emergency, we need the state itself to become just and scientific because justice is a climate-change technology of great power, says award-winning science- and climate-fiction author Kim Stanley Robinson.

During the 2017 Atlantic basin hurricane season , six major storms -- all of which were Category 3 or higher -- produced devastating human, material and financial devastation across the southern United States and the Caribbean. Last year's above-average storm activity was foreseeable. Hurricane intensity ticked up in 2016 and scientists have predicted this trend will hold as global temperatures continue to rise . Though people in the US and the Caribbean share this increasing vulnerability to hurricanes, they hold very different opinions about the severity of climate change. According to results from the latest Vanderbilt University AmericasBarometer survey , a strong majority of Caribbean residents perceive climate change as a "very serious" problem. In contrast, just 44 percent of the US public does . Why the difference of ...

NOAA research holds promise of predicting snowpack before snow falls 29.1.2018 Environmental News Network
As farmers in the American West decide what, when and where to plant, and urban water managers plan for water needs in the next year, they want to know how much water their community will get from melting snow in the mountains.This melting snow comes from snowpack, the high elevation reservoir of snow which melts in the spring and summer. Agriculture depends on snowpack for a majority of its water. Meltwater also contributes to municipal water supply; feeds rivers and streams, boosting fisheries and tourism; and conditions the landscape, helping lessen the effects of drought and wildfires.

With your support, Truthout can continue exposing inequality, analyzing policy and reporting on the struggle for a better world. Click here to make a tax-deductible donation. Around the world, the health care debate often revolves around access. Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, head of the World Health Organization, recently announced: "All roads lead to universal health coverage." Discussions for how to translate this vision into a road map for action is central to the agenda of the WHO's executive board meeting this week in Geneva. Yet focusing on access is not enough. The imperative for access must be paired with a frank acknowledgment that climate change is making communities around the world more vulnerable to ill health. A 2017 commission of The Lancet , a leading health research journal, tracked the effects of climate change on health and found evidence of harms "far worse that previously understood." Even as we move to close the access gap, a string of natural disasters in late 2017, including ...
