NASA discovers mantle plume almost as hot as Yellowstone that's melting Antarctica from below
Environment News · Nov 24, 2019 by Hannah Osborne

A mantle plume producing almost as much heat as Yellowstone supervolcano appears to be melting part of West Antarctica from beneath. Researchers at NASA have discovered a huge upwelling of hot rock under Marie Byrd Land, which lies between the Ross Ice Shelf and the Ross Sea, is creating vast lakes and rivers under the ice sheet.

Environment News · Nov 17, 2019 by Stephen Leahy via Natural Geographic

The world's most widely used insecticide has been linked to the dramatic decline in songbirds in North America.

The Riksbank deputy governor, Martin Floden, said the bank would no longer invest in assets from issuers with a large climate footprint, even if the yields were high.

World News · Nov 16, 2019 by Walter Donway via Saavy Street

Recycling was one of those great ideas of the 1970s, right? One of the first great movements to save the earth from resource depletion and the land and sea from human refuse? Who could even imagine, now, a modern nation without recycling bins, recycling plants, and yoghurt containers made with recycled materials?

Politics News · May 19, 2019 by Walter Donway

The justification of capitalism is that human nature and the nature of reality require that each individual live in freedom pursuing his values. It once was expressed as the “right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
