Charcoal, at the cost of trees 18.7.2016 Deccan Herald - Supplements
When Julien Andrianiana started selling charcoal 14 years ago, he was just one of a few dealers around. Most households in Toliara, a coastal city in southwestern Madagascar, still used firewood for cooking. As the city's population doubled, business became so brisk that he managed to send two of his children to college. It quickly became the product of choice in kitchens not only in Toliara, but also in other fast-growing cities across Africa. Charcoal — cleaner and easier to use than firewood, cheaper and more readily available than gas or electricity — has become one of the biggest engines of Africa's informal economy. But it has also become one of the greatest threats to its environment. In Madagascar, an island nation off the eastern African coast and one of the world's richest nations in biodiversity, the booming charcoal business is contributing to deforestation. It is expected to exacerbate the effects of climate change, which has disrupted farming, fuelled a migration to cities, and ...

Drastic climate change thanks to soot from meteorite impact may have wiped out dinosaurs 17.7.2016 DNA: Top News
Massive amounts of soot ejected from rocks following an asteroid impact caused global cooling and drought that may have led to the mass extinction of dinosaurs 66 million years ago, a new study suggests. Researchers from Tohoku University and the Meteorological Research Institute in Japan believe that massive amounts of stratospheric soot ejected from rocks following the famous Chicxulub asteroid impact, caused global cooling, drought and limited cessation of photosynthesis in oceans. This may have led to the mass extinction of dinosaurs and ammonites at the end of the Cretaceous Period, they said. The asteroid, also known as the Chicxulub impactor, caused a crater more than 180 km wide. It had long been believed that the event triggered the mass extinction that led to the macroevolution of mammals and the appearance of humans. Researchers analysed sedimentary organic molecules from two places - Haiti, which is near the impact site, and Spain, which is far. They found that the impact layer of both areas ...
