An important document describing how Seattle might begin to move seriously towards first Kyoto compliance and then climate neutrality, and a searing expose about how the same allegedly heroic Seattle mayor who commissioned the report is largely ignoring its implications because they are politically inconvenient, especially as regards a proposed waterfront freeway.

Please check out all the links. The subject, people, trends and innovations are shaping the fragile earth of tomorrow.

I got all the links from this article: Ten Stories You May Have Missed.

Check it out. There are some great articles that weren't appropriate for this topic.

After reading the story on the link between the Sahara and Amazon I remembered a story I had heard many years ago. The story was that before the break up of the continents, the Amazon and the Sahara was one gigantic area of forrest. After the split, the forrest area in the Sahara region became unstable and was no longer able to maintain its lush growth.

I don't know if that is a myth or scientific fact, but it would explain the link.

I don't know. Sounds like a myth because It's my understanding that the Rainforest's are in a stead march/retreat/disappear "pattern" which is primarily governed by the amount of precipitation they get and the leeching caused by nearby rivers.

This thread here tells the story of some Columbian Intellectuals who actually reversed a desertification leeching process that has been going on four tens of thousands of years.

Thanks sardion. Great links.


I don't have much else to say, except posting is the only way I can get threads onto my favorites pop-up list.

Need to go back and read more later.

I told you!


It doesn't show on "myATS favorites" if I don't post. ...It goes somewhere else that I seldom click on.
