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

A New Way Global Warming Kills Birds

10,000 Birds

DTR is known to change, to either increase or decrease, with climate change (global warming) so understanding the effects of a shifting DTR on wild populations of birds is critically important.

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.

What Happened in Costa Rica on Global Big Day, 2017

10,000 Birds

Since we were doing the Global Big Day closer to home, we wimped out and figured we would start at one a.m. Since it had been calling almost nightly for two months, I had hoped it would still come out and play on Global Big Day but knew that it could also stop calling at any time.

How can we stop global warming?

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) When most people ask, “How can we stop global warming?” They are instead asking, “How can we stop global warming without stopping the burning of oil and gas, without stopping the industrial infrastructure, without stopping this omnicidal system?”

Results of the 2015 Global Big Day

10,000 Birds

With the successful first Global Big Day the application of simultaneous count to help understand bird populations on multiple scales has a new meaning. But the idea of a Global Bid Day sounded like a good excuse to go out birding on May 9th and make my day’s list count. This places Peru as a Global Big Day Champion for the year of 2015!!! I believe the sense of contribution to an importance cause prompted people to join the Global Big Day count. Cusco Birders.
