Nobel economist: Trump’s economy is an absolute disaster for people and the planet 19.1.2020 Raw Story

On Friday's The Lead on CNN, host Jake Tapper ran a report by correspondent Will Ripley which promoted the alarmist view that global warming is to blame for the unusually bad wildfire season in Australia, and that skeptics deserve scorn for undermining the alarmists who are trying to cut carbon dioxide levels.

Boulder County’s populations of native bird species decline in the face of development 12.1.2020 Denver Post: Local
The Northern Hemisphere lost 3 billion birds, or 29% of the overall population, in the last 50 years. While the warming climate has played a demonstrative role in this decline – and will continue to do so with ever-increasing power – ornithologists in Boulder County have pointed to urban sprawl as a more immediate threat to the survival of the area’s native bird populations, without which local ecosystems cannot properly function, adding to the affects of climate change.

How the extinction of ice age mammals may have forced us to invent civilization 4.1.2020 Raw Story
Why did we take so long to invent civilisation? Modern Homo sapiens first evolved roughly 250,000 to 350,000 years ago. But initial steps towards civilisation – harvesting, then domestication of crop plants – began only around 10,000 years ago, with the first civilisations appearing 6,400 years ago. For 95% of our species’ history, we didn’t […]
