Climate Change and Global Warming – A Christian Perspective – AMAC

By – Michael Gordon Environmentalists have certainly been raising concerns about this subject for decades now, claiming that the earth’s temperature is rising, and that this planet will no longer be able to sustain life if things continue progressing in…

COP26 and False Solutions to Climate Change – LifeGate

Changes to climate and their physical consequences cannot be addressed without recognising the central role of the industrial, globalised food system, both in its contribution to and perpetuation of the climate crisis and in its creation of vulnerable agri-food systems…

VOICES: The Roots of Climate Change – The Garden Island

Human-caused climate change started not only with burning fossil fuels but with our exploitation of the Earths’ soil. Indigenous societies, many with sophisticated agricultural systems structured around knowledge of environmental limits, were often violently displaced from their land or forced…

My Body My Rights

June 25, 2021, 11:08 am Variations of “my body my rights” have been a central theme for the Left for decades.  I am all for this (as long as we are applying it to adults wholeheartedly but more restrictively to…

Climate change vs agriculture: Can one farming method—conventional, organic or agroecology—help slow global warming? – Genetic Literacy Project

Climate change and agriculture appear joined at the hip. Agriculture—through methane, carbon dioxide, and land use—has had an impact on the global climate. And climate change—through drought, heat, and pests—will have an impact on agriculture, reducing yields and making farming…

Hotter, drier, CRISPR: editing for climate change

(University of Queensland) Just 15 plant crops provide 90 per cent of the world’s food calories. A review of genome editing technologies published in Theoretical and Applied Genetics states gene editing technology could play a vital role to play in climate-proofing future crops to protect global food security. The review recommends integrating CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing into modern breeding programs for crop improvement in cereals.

Antibiotic-resistant bacteria: Fluoride to the rescue?

Scientists have long been aware of the dangerous overuse of antibiotics and the increasing number of antibiotic-resistant microbes that have resulted. While over-prescription of antibiotics for medicinal use has unsettling implications for human health, so too does the increasing presence of antibiotics in the natural environment. The latter may stem from the improper disposal of medicines, but also from the biotechnology field, which has depended on antibiotics as a selection device in the lab.
