Our planet needs help 16.12.2014 Asian Age: Editorial
The carbon-curbing draft deal signed in Lima over the weekend by 194 nations is not ideal. It is too watered down and is at best a compromise. But it is a reasonable starting point to the Paris accord, which should be in by the end of 2015. At the heart of the matter lie two things one, extreme weather events point to global warming and, against the background of 2014 being one of the hottest years on record, there is a need to do something about it; and two, rich nations tend to resile from financial commitments, which is why climate talks invariably get bogged down. The developed nations first polluted the world in their Industrial Age while developing nations had only coal to burn for their own progress in the last few decades. Alternative technologies may be available now as also better methods of curbing emissions, but they are expensive and the developed nations must pay for them. $100 billion a year may sound frightening, but, if the planet is to be saved, it stands to reason that the major ...

Greens slam ‘lacklustre’ climate deal 15.12.2014 Asian Age: International
A carbon-curbing deal struck in Lima on Sunday was a watered-down compromise where national intransigence threatened the goal of a pact to save Earth’s climate system, green groups said. The hard-fought agreement sets out guidelines for the submission of national greenhouse-gas pledges next year. But, the groups said, initially ambitious standards became weaker the longer the talks wound on. In a tug-of-war between rich and developing nation interests, the end result was a “lacklustre plan with little scientific relevancy,” said WWF’s climate expert, Samantha Smith. “Against the backdrop of extreme weather in the Philippines and potentially the hottest year ever recorded, governments at the UN climate talks in Lima opted for a half-baked plan to cut emissions,” she added. NGOs and developing nations alike had hoped the agreement would compel rich countries to include information in their pledges on climate adaptation and other financial help. They had also sought a robust assessment of the pledges’ ...

Hu tieu, a Vietnamese dish spiced with prosperity and climate change 14.12.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page

The rice noodle soup, a specialty of the Mekong Delta, tells the tale of the changing economy and environment in the region. Is Vietnam becoming a victim of our appetites?

On a visit last month to the town of My Tho, the capital of the Tien Giang province in Vietnam’s Mekong Delta, I found a riverside restaurant that served the local specialty, a dish called hu tieu. It’s a delicious soup, dense with stretchy rice noodles and topped with succulent locally farmed shrimp.

These two ingredients of hu tieu have set the delta on a remarkable path to prosperity. In provinces like Tien Giang and neighboring Ben Tre, as one drives east toward the South China Sea, the landscape is stitched together with fertile rice paddies and brackish ponds teeming with shrimp. This transformation has taken place in just one generation.
