It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..”, comes from a line in section 1.10.32.Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text.

Great Dying Similarities

Great Dying Similarities There was a time when life on Earth almost blinked out. The “Great Dying,” the biggest extinction the planet has ever seen, happened some 250 million years ago and was largely caused by greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Now scientists are beginning to see alarming similarities between the Great Dying and what’s currently happening to our atmosphere.There was a time when life on Earth almost blinked out.

California Wildfires – Example of Unpreparedness

California Wildfires – Example of Unpreparedness For days now, a cloud of acrid smoke has settled over the Bay Area, blown down from the Kincade Fire in the north. More than 200,000 people have been evacuated from that fire alone, while the lingering effects of a long drought and high winds have turned the region into a tinderbox. On Sunday, a sudden fire in Vallejo stopped traffic on a bridge across the northeast side of the bay, forcing workers to abandon toll booths as the bridge was swallowed with smoke. It’s a scary moment, made...

Food Supply Threat from Climate Change

Food Supply Threat from Climate Change The world’s land and water resources are being exploited at “unprecedented rates,” a new United Nations report warns, which combined with climate change is putting dire pressure on the ability of humanity to feed itself. The report, prepared by more than 100 experts from 52 countries and released in summary form in Geneva on Thursday, found that the window to address the threat is closing rapidly. A half-billion people already live in places turning into desert, and soil is being lost...

Best Way to Cut Carbon Emissions

Best Way to Cut Carbon Emissions The key divide here is personal/political: what are the things we can do ourselves, and what can governments do? A balance here is crucial, mostly because neither side of the equation can be trusted to fully implement their changes. Governments often sacrifice the environment first, and the populous often has bigger issues to be concerned about. Therefore, if a balanced solution can be achieved, the whole plan can never truly fail. Just as environmental policy until now has been a case of...

Midwest Floods…Predictable

Midwest Floods…Predictable Torrential downpours have flooded huge swaths of the Midwest and the Southeast since last week. Rain over the weekend triggered flash floods in several states, including Tennessee, Kentucky, Texas, Oklahoma, North Carolina, and Florida. In some states, more than a month’s worth of rain fell in a day. Beyond flash floods, rivers rising more slowly in places like Iowa have threatened drinking water. In Illinois, flooding this past week has closed roads and bridges. Atlanta broke a...

Last-ditch Ways To Survive Climate Change

Last-ditch Ways To Survive Climate Change Here are some strategies researchers have put forth to hack the planet and combat climate change. Geoengineering is a term that refers to technology that can alter Earth’s natural cycles to cool down the planet. It’s being increasingly discussed as a potential way to address climate change. Putting mirrors in space, capturing carbon dioxide, and seeding clouds with particles are all ways of manipulating weather or the atmosphere. But some scientists and politicians think...

Climate Change: Cities will Seem 500 Miles South

Climate Change: Cities will Seem 500 Miles South “Within the lifetime of children living today, the climate of many regions is projected to change from the familiar to conditions unlike those experienced in the same place by their parents, grandparents, or perhaps any generation in millennia,” said Matt Fitzpatrick of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science. “Many cities could experience climates with no modern equivalent in North America.” In one generation, the climate experienced in many North American cities is...

Global Warming is like a Terror Movie

Global Warming is like a Terror Movie Global warming is posing such wide-ranging risks to humanity, involving so many types of phenomena, that by the end of this century some parts of the world could face as many as six climate-related crises at the same time, researchers say. This chilling prospect is described in a paper published Monday in Nature Climate Change, a respected academic journal, that shows the effects of climate change across a broad spectrum of problems, including heat waves, wildfires, sea level rise,...

Arctic Wildfires

Arctic Wildfires In July of 2018, there were 11 wildfires occurring north of the Arctic Circle. That’s more than ever before…. In July of 2018, there were 11 wildfires occurring north of the Arctic Circle. It is a fitting visual backdrop to the recently published study led by NASA that concludes that the Arctic carbon cycle is speeding up. Carbon spends 13% less time locked in frozen soil in the Arctic Circle than it did 40 years ago, which means that the landscape in the region is now leaning...

Runaway Global Warming

Runaway Global Warming A new study out Monday warns of the possibility of out-of-control global warming if humans fail to band together to fight the worst effects of climate change. The analysis, conducted by researchers at the Australian National University and the Stockholm Resilience Center, among other institutions, outlines the potential for a “threshold” that, if crossed, would lead to runaway warming patterns and the advent of a “Hothouse Earth.” If such a threshold is crossed, the...
