Keeping the Holidays Simple

During the holidays, 20% more waste is created at Christmas than at any other time during the year. Landfills receive more than one billion Christmas cards, 8,000 tonnes of wrapping paper (that's over 50,000 trees) and over 38,000 miles of ribbon. That's enough to tie a bow around the Earth. There's a better way to celebrate the holidays.

Global Warming

Stephen Thomson’s soul-chilling footage of extreme weather events we have witnessed of late, combined with Bill McKibben’s powerful op-ed piece from the Washington Post last month dramatically illustrates the time for debate is over. Global warming is not something that will affect us in the distant future. It’s here, it’s now, and it’s at our front door. And our food supply is taking a direct hit.

Pushing Earth's ‘Planetary Boundaries’

A new report published in Science gauges the breaking points in the natural world. Researchers contend that we have already crossed four of the nine “planetary boundaries”: the extinction rate; deforestation; the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere; and the flow of nitrogen and phosphorous (used on land as fertilizer) into the ocean.

High CO2 Makes Crops Less Nutritious

According to a new landmark study from Harvard, dangerously low levels of nutrients in foods are expected in just a few decades if carbon dioxide (CO2) levels rise as predicted. The study is the first to prove that increasing CO2 levels rob certain crop staples of zinc and iron.

Disappearing Act

While the fact that the sardine population off the West Coast is down 72% since 2006 may not mean anything to you, this drop represents the worst crash since the mid-20th century and it has far-reaching implications for thousands of species including humans.

Adieu Bordeaux, Hello Chateau Yellowstone

Researchers predict a two thirds fall in production in the world’s premier wine regions because of climate change.

A study by Conservation International predicts sharp declines in wine production from Bordeaux, Rhone and Tuscany as well as California’s Napa alley and Chile by 2050 as a warming climate makes it harder to raise grapes in traditional wine country.

Climate Change May Create Price Volatility in the Corn Market

A study published April 22 in the journal Nature Climate Change shows for the first time climate change's influence on year-to-year swings in corn prices.

Researchers from Stanford and Purdue universities found that climate change's impact on corn price volatility could far outweigh the volatility caused by changing oil prices or government energy policies mandating biofuels production from corn and other crops.

The Global Ocean Crisis

According to a recent report released by the International Programme on the State of the Ocean (IPSO) our global ocean is on the brink of catastrophe. If you're reading this and thinking that's really too bad but it doesn't affect me just stop a moment and take a breath. That breath just came from the sea.
