I hope you all had a safe & Happy Easter! Back into all things environmental, I am heartened to read about Australian scientists highlighting links between long-term conservation of natural resources and reducing poverty. Over-use of natural resources is something we humans are really good at. Last Weeks Nature Journal included an interesting article by Australian scientists:
“The protection of Earth’s life support system and poverty reduction must be the twin priorities…The stable functioning of Earth systems, including the atmosphere, oceans, forests, waterways, biodiversity and biogeochemical cycles, is a pre-requisite for a thriving global society.” They conclude that ‘Governments must impose radical limits on everything from water use to greenhouse gases if they want to have any chance of ending global poverty’.
Closer to home, the Conservation Council of SA have launched a campaign to get large scale renewable Energy in SA, the campaign is called: Green Our Grid or Feed Our Greed? The Choice is Ours, click here to find out more.
