Is global travel history after COVID-19?

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic might spell the end of global travel as we have known it for quite some time now, jetting from one side of the world to the other. Not only aids such fast travel to other countries far across the globe, and even countries closer, to the spread of any virus, it also can leave, as we have seen, travelers stranded in countries, affected or not from such an event, with almost no way to get back home.

Forecasting global oil demand

Environmental Economics

Exxon Mobil, for example, projects that global demand for oil will keep growing — by just over 13 percent from today, to 109 million barrels of oil a day by 2040. But the International Energy Agency’s projections include one situation where demand could drop by 22 percent, to 74 million barrels a day by 2040, if measures are put in place to keep global warming at levels that, while still dangerous, could avoid the most devastating consequences.

Pregnant as a global nomad

Global Big Day is an initiative created by the folks at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology to promote the use of eBird and birding in general. A birder can participate in Global Big Day (GBD) by eBirding as much or as little as one feels like doing but why not just go all in and give yourself over to birding? I shared information to find some of those evasive species but my personal task on Global Big Day wasn’t finding a Lanceolated Monklet or other seriously challenging species.

The global debt

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) The global debt, that is the "money" owed by all countries, is currently at over US$230 trillion – please don't ask me no many zeros come after the 230, I have no idea – but the question we should ask is "who do those countries, including our own, owe this money to?" More interesting is also that, to all intents and purposes, the global debt can never be repaid. debt fake values global debt

The Guardian has indicated that it is changing its guidelines for writing about climate change :   “We want to ensure that we are being scientifically precise, while also communicating clearly with readers on this very important issue,” said the editor-in-chief, Katharine Viner. The phrase ‘climate change’, for example, sounds rather passive and gentle when what scientists are talking about is a catastrophe for humanity.”.

Global carbon emissions have reached a record 10 billion tons, which is a huge increase of almost 50% in the last twenty years.
