"Earth: Recessionary Cooling Continues"

Environmental Economics

Ironman: Going by the level of carbon dioxide measured in the Earth's atmosphere in July 2015, it appears that Earth's economy continued its recessionary cooling in July 2015, with the trailing year moving average of the year over year change in the CO2 levels ticking up to be just barely above its June level. Not uncoincidentally, Earth's largest producer of atmospheric carbon dioxide, China, saw its national economy continue to sputter during the month.

Giving Back to Earth

Giving Back to Earth. Three hundred sixty four days a year, we humans take some part of Mother Earth to sustain ourselves. Mostly, it’s food, but fuel for our vehicles is another big bite. So is the burning of fossil fuels like coal, oil and natural gas, in huge power plants, to provide energy for our interior lighting, heat, and the electricity needed to power our electronic devices. Most of these uses are essential: we have to work.

I often like to poke fun at how dangerous the wildlife of Australia is, as ever since the giant man-eating Haast’s Eagle went extinct the land life on New Zealand has been mostly harmless. But the thing is, while the animals may not want to kill you, it sometimes feels as if the land itself does. Not a few weeks after a decent sized earthquake struck the capital (as well as the poor town of Seddon on South Island), another large quake hit us.
