The last wild river 27.6.2016 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Three great rivers rush through parallel canyons in the mountains of southwest China on their way to the coastal plains of Asia. At least 10 dams have been built on two of them, the Mekong and the Yangtze. The third remains wild: the remote, raging Nu, known as the Salween in Myanmar, where it empties into the Andaman Sea. No dam stands in the path of its turquoise waters. It is the last free-flowing river in China. Environmentalists have waged a passionate defence of the Nu for more than a decade, battling state hydropower firms determined to build dams to harness the river. It is an epic struggle that has veered from victory to defeat and back again several times and has recently taken on new significance: with global temperatures rising, can China afford to protect its rivers and forego an alternative to the coal-fired plants responsible for much of the world's greenhouse gas emissions? Green advocates across the country have argued that dams on the Nu would force the relocation of tens of thousands ...

Study shows how climate can make you violent 25.6.2016 DNA: Urban Tales
Scientists have long struggled to explain why cool heads won't be able to prevail in a hotter world and now, a team of researchers has come up with a model that could help explain why. Developed by Paul van Lange of Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam along with Maria I. Rinderu and Brad Bushman, this new model, called CLASH (CLimate Aggression, and Self-control in Humans), goes beyond the simple fact that hotter temperatures seem to be linked to more aggressive The researchers believe that hot climates and less variation in seasonal temperatures lead to a faster life strategy, less focus on the future, and less self-control - all of which contribute to more aggression and violence. "Climate shapes how people live, it affects the culture in ways that we don't think about in our daily lives," said lead author Van Lange. "We believe our model can help explain the impact of climate on rates of violence in different parts of the world." Many studies have shown that levels of violence and aggression are higher in ...
