Science and Environment News

Many days my only news is science and environment news which puts all the world news story in perspective. First there's BBC Science and Environment where I learn that UK 'can cut emissions to nearly zero' by 2050 which of course means we all could if we paid attention or cared. Also looked at Nature's emergency: Where we are in five graphics. Then to Guardian's Environment/Climate Change where a recent article stated: Climate change costings that don't count the cost of inaction are worthless. Nature/Climate Change is excellent and more academic as with .

And of course there are many other excellent sources for science and environment news - including Facebook. Al Rapaport just posted this link on Facebook: Salt Water Fish Extinction Seen by 2048. I shared it with the following comment:

Can't keep up with the bad news. It's coming in avalanches. World society is doing next to nothing about it that makes much of a difference..

And I do check out stuff that isn't about our impending doom like: Box jellyfish: Australian researchers find antidote for world's most venomous creature - I swim in southern seas and think about them sometimes. I recall that one can protect against box jellyfish with even fine material like the hose that women I was around as a kid used to wear. John Tarrant of PZI was once surrounded by the lethal critters and managed to escape through a narrow passage. Good news to me is like the delicious fruit on the vine enjoyed by the monk on a cliff before his fall. Have a good day.
