World on Fire | Charles Eisenstein

Brazil’s Pantanal is the world’s largest tropical wetland, covering an area nearly the size of Britain. Only today, it isn’t so wet. After a summer of drought, catastrophic fires are raging that have devastated 2.4 million hectares of land already this year. (That’s more than has burned in California, Oregon, and Washington combined.) Its precious wildlife, including the world’s largest population of jaguars, are suffering irreparable damage. What’s causing the destruction? The proximate causes seem quite different from what is causing the fires in California, but if we trace them back through enough layers, we get to the same deep cause and, therefore, to the same deep solution. Since 2019, catastrophic fires have afflicted the Amazon, the Congo basin, Australia, Siberia, Argentina, and countless other places. While some on the political Right were in denial that anything unusual was happening, today the entire political spectrum is in agreement that something is horribly amiss. In the US, the Right offers candidate explanations like poor forest management, while Democratic politicians emphasize climate change. What they both agree on is that the current state of affairs in abnormal, unacceptable, and requires action. This, at least, is progress. In fact, both sides are approaching the same truth from different directions. Let me start at forest management, pass through climate change via a back door, visit the blatantly criminal behavior behind fires in the Amazon and Pantanal, and arrive finally at the core of the issue.

Jackson Wellsprings ignored evacuation order to stay and save 'sacred land' | KTVL

A group of residents at Jackson Wellsprings off of Highway 99 in Ashland decided not to follow the evacuation order issued during the Almeda Fire, instead they decided to stay and pump water from their pool to fight the fire away from the property. Owner, Gerry Lehrburger said the thought to leave never even crossed his mind. "No, it was out of the question. We were here. This is our home, this is our sacred land," Lehrburger said. Kevin Decker, the facility's gatekeeper, said once it became clear the fire was heading their way they made the decision to stay.

World's Most Remote Island Creates Largest Atlantic Ocean Sanctuary | EcoWatch

In the South Atlantic Ocean, a tiny island of 250 people has made a significant contribution to global marine conservation by protecting a huge swath of ocean under its control. To reach Tristan da Cunha, a UK overseas territory, one must make a seven-day boat trip from South Africa, reported National Geographic. The island chain recently announced that 700,000 square kilometers (270,271 square miles), or 90% of its territorial waters, will be designated as a large marine protected area (MPA) to safeguard the area's rich biodiversity and endangered animals, The Guardian reported. At that size, it will be three times the size of Britain, the largest marine sanctuary in the Atlantic and the fourth largest in the world, providing refuge to sevengill sharks, whales and seals, AP News continued.

Largest Dam Removal Project in U.S. History Restarts With Interstate Partnership | EcoWatch

The dam removal project is essential to the tribes in the region — the Klamath River on the Oregon-California border — and will reopen hundreds of miles of river access to salmon that have been blocked for more than a century, in what is seen as one of the largest salmon restoration attempts in U.S. history. The removal would drain large reservoirs and reshape California's second-largest river.

State With No Electricity Orders Everyone To Drive Cars That Run On Electricity | The Babylon Bee

Gavin Newsom, governor of the state with the highest people-to-electricity ratio in the nation, banned gasoline cars yesterday via executive order. The order takes effect in 2035, meaning by that time, everyone in the state with no electricity will only be able to plug in their cars to the power grid that does not work.

Superwhite Paint Will Reduce Need for Air Conditioning and Actually Cool the Earth | NextBigFuture.com

Purdue University engineers have created white paint that can keep surfaces up to 18 degrees Fahrenheit cooler than their ambient surroundings – almost like a refrigerator does, but without consuming energy. Commercial “heat rejecting paints” currently on the market reflect only 80%-90% of sunlight and cannot achieve temperatures below their surroundings. The white paint that Purdue researchers created reflects 95.5% sunlight and efficiently radiates infrared heat.

Trump Declares National Emergency Backing Domestic Mining, Will Reduce Reliance on China for Critical Minerals | The Epoch Times

amp up domestic production of critical minerals such as rare earth elements to support mining jobs in the United States, in a bid to reduce the nation’s reliance on Beijing.

Spalding: the CCP’s Influence on 2020 | The Epoch Times

Robert Spalding, a retired Air Force brigadier general and senior fellow at the Hudson Institute, said this “entire year has been dominated by actions of the Chinese Communist Party” because “2020 has really been about the coronavirus.” He said that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) enabled the spread of the virus through international air travel while blocking domestic air travel within China. He said the CCP locked down the distribution of PPM masks around the world, put pressure on the World Health Organization to not talk about human to human transmission, encouraged panic on social media, and spread disinformation that the virus originated from the United States and Spain. Hudson Institute Senior Fellow Robert Spalding said: “What does it have to do with the CCP? Why did we have massive mail-in ballots? Because of the Coronavirus. Why do we have the Coronavirus? Because of the Chinese Communist Party.” “So when you add all of these things together, the actions by the Chinese Communist Party deliberately impacted the U.S. election,” he said.

Hopes rise for end of pandemic as Pfizer says vaccine is 90% effective | World news | The Guardian

Hopes are soaring that a Covid vaccine is within reach, following news that an interim analysis has shown Pfizer/BioNTech’s candidate was 90% effective in protecting people from transmission of the virus in global trials. The vaccine performed much better than most experts had hoped for, according to the companies’ analysis, and brings into view a potential end to a pandemic that has killed more than a million people, battered economies and upended daily life worldwide. The data is from an interim analysis and the trial continues into December but the headline results were emphatic. Regulators will be looking to process an emergency licence application at record speed.

Scientists baffled at disappearance of influenza... but is it really gone, or just masked by Covid-19? | RT Op-ed

There has been a 98% plummet in flu infections this year, dispelling fears of a Covid and flu ‘twin-demic’ about which many had warned. Experts say we can thank masks and social distancing. But does this really add up? Although there is no mass testing for flu as there is for Covid, the WHO says that surveillance of data from around the world shows flu rates collapsing everywhere. Australia essentially ‘skipped’ their flu season this year, with not a single case reported since July (their peak). In fact, flu has more or less vanished throughout the Southern Hemisphere, and early indicators suggest it will follow suit north of the equator. What can explain this unprecedented decline?

Solar Is Cheapest Energy: Renewable Energy vs. Fossil Fuels Cost | Popular Mechanics

In a new report, the International Energy Agency (IEA) says solar is now the cheapest form of electricity for utility companies to build. That’s thanks to risk-reducing financial policies around the world, the agency says, and it applies to locations with both the most favorable policies and the easiest access to financing. The report underlines how important these policies are to encouraging development of renewables and other environmentally forward technologies.

How psychedelic DMT promotes the production of new brain cells | New Atlas

Robust new research, published in the journal Translational Psychiatry, is reporting on several years of animal studies showing how a psychedelic drug called dimethyltryptamine (DMT) can promote brain plasticity and induce the formation of new neurons. The research presents evidence to suggest the hallucinogenic effects of the drug may be able to be separated from this neuron-generating mechanism.
