Les pesticides tueurs d’abeilles triplent la mortalité des insectes.

Les pesticides tueurs d’abeilles triplent la mortalité des insectes

Il n’y a plus désormais que les firmes agrochimiques pour le nier. Ou du moins pour sous-évaluer le rôle de ces pesticides dans le déclin catastrophique des colonies d’insectes butineurs. Ces sociétés préfèrent le réduire à un facteur pathogène parmi d’autres : virus, monocultures réduisant et fragmentant leurs habitats, champignons, invasion de frelons, réchauffement climatique… Il semble, au contraire, que les néonicotinoïdes multiplient par trois cette mortalité accélérée. Voilà des années que les apiculteurs alertent sur l’impact des néonicotinoïdes, qu’ils lient à l’effondrement du nombre de leurs colonies d’abeilles, depuis que l’usage de ces produits chimiques s’est généralisé dans les campagnes occidentales, à partir de 1995.

Las industrias extractivas y mineras, los proyectos hidroeléctricos, el acaparamiento de tierras para la agroindustria a gran escala y la tala, generalmente asociada a madereros ilegales que entran en áreas protegidas o territorios indígenas, fueron las principales causas de los crímenes perpetrados.

Nature (philosophy)

On the one hand, it means the set of all things which are natural, or subject to the normal working of the laws of nature. On the other hand, it means the essential properties and causes of individual things. How to understand the meaning and significance of nature has been a consistent theme of discussion within the history of Western Civilization, in the philosophical fields of metaphysics and epistemology, as well as in theology and science. The study of natural things and the regular laws which seem to govern them, as opposed to discussion about what it means to be natural, is the area of natural science. Teshe word "nature" derives from Latin nātūra, a philosophical term derived from the verb for birth, which was used as a translation for the earlier Ancient Greek term phusis which was derived from the verb for natural growth, for example that of a plant. And so Bacon advised... 51. Against Nature. Argues that the tradition of critical theory has had significant problems dealing with the concept of nature and that their solutions require taking seriously the idea of nature as socially constructed.

Against Nature

“Vogel's book lies at the intersection of three important fields: Marxist Critical Theory, postempiricist philosophy and sociology of science, and environmental ethics. It is truly excellent. The argument is original and convincing. The project of relating the Western Marxist tradition to contemporary trends in philosophy of science and environmental ethics enriches all three fields.” —Andrew Feenberg, San Diego State University. Three Challenges For Environmental Philosophy. Sustainability Jim Moran explains why saving the planet will be an uphill struggle.

Three Challenges For Environmental Philosophy

The recent development of the branch of philosophy called ‘environmental philosophy’, or as it is sometimes referred to, ‘environmental ethics’, has been characterized by a variety of theoretical disputes about the best way to provide a philosophical basis for engagement with the environmental problems facing us, now and in the future. Many of the early writers hoped that a new environmental ethics would emerge, embodying a set of principles that could help us deal with our relation to animals and the natural world in a way that traditional ethical theories seemed to have overlooked. Environmental Ethics.


Environmental Ethics

Introduction: The Challenge of Environmental Ethics Suppose putting out natural fires, culling feral animals or destroying some individual members of overpopulated indigenous species is necessary for the protection of the integrity of a certain ecosystem. Will these actions be morally permissible or even required? Is it morally acceptable for farmers in non-industrial countries to practise slash and burn techniques to clear areas for agriculture? Consider a mining company which has performed open pit mining in some previously unspoiled area. Idea of Progress. In intellectual history, the Idea of Progress is the idea that advances in technology, science, and social organization can produce an improvement in the human condition.

Idea of Progress

That is, people can become better in terms of quality of life (social progress) through economic development (modernization), and the application of science and technology (scientific progress). The assumption is that the process will happen once people apply their reason and skills, for it is not divinely foreordained. The role of the expert is to identify hindrances that slow or neutralize progress. The Idea of Progress emerged primarily in the Enlightenment in the 18th century.[1][2] Significant movements in this period were Diderot's Encyclopedia, which carried on the campaign against authority and superstition, and the French Revolution.

Postdevelopment theory. Postdevelopment theory (also post-development, or anti-development) holds that the whole concept and practice of development is a reflection of Western-Northern hegemony over the rest of the world.

Postdevelopment theory

Postdevelopment thought arose in the 1980s out of criticisms voiced against development projects and development theory, which justified them. Development as ideology[edit] The postdevelopment critique holds that modern development theory is a creation of academia in tandem with an underlying political and economic ideology. The academic, political, and economic nature of development means it tends to be policy oriented, problem-driven, and therefore effective only in terms of and in relation to a particular, pre-existing social theory.

The actual development projects thus initiated, by both governments and NGOs, are directed in accordance with this development theory. Robyn Eckersley.

Background[edit] Outline of green politics. Green politics – political ideology that aims for the creation of an ecologically sustainable society rooted in environmentalism, social liberalism, and grassroots democracy.[1] It began taking shape in the western world in the 1970s; since then Green parties have developed and established themselves in many countries across the globe, and have achieved some electoral success. Nature of green politics[edit] Green politics can be described as:

Our Top 10 Environmental Documentary Films. By Chiara Spagnoli Gabardi and Arwa Lodhi The 32nd edition of Festival international du film d’environnement recently being held in France sparked much discussion and thought around environmental issues. Environmental Film Profiles (videos) Environment. List of environmental films. Environmental issues have increasingly become a topic in film and television. Within the last twenty years, commercially successful films with an environmentalism theme have been released theatrically and made by the major Hollywood studios. The Annual Environmental Media Awards have been presented by the Environmental Media Association (EMA) since 1991 to the best television episode or film with an environmental message.[1] Love Canal. Love Canal is a neighborhood of Niagara Falls, New York. It is the site of an infamous Superfund disaster that greatly affected the health of hundreds of its residents.

Originally a planned dream community, Love Canal experienced growth as a model section for nearly a century. The area slowly declined before being bought out in the 1940s by the Hooker Company. In the late 1970s, Love Canal received national attention for the ensuing health development that originated from the disposal of 22,000 barrels of toxic waste. Numerous families were displaced, having been contaminated with chemicals and toxic waste, resulting in severe health issues.

Early history[edit] Love Canal was named after William T. Juicio Final. Judaísmo[editar] Escatología. Premature Deaths from Environmental Degradation Threat to Global Public Health, UNEP Report Says. Danger posed by air pollution, chemicals, microplastics, zoonotic diseases and other environmental threats to human health revealed in series of reports released at second United Nations Environment Assembly Nairobi, 23 May 2016 - Environmental degradation and pollution is estimated to cause up to 234 times as many premature deaths as occur in conflicts annually, highlighting the importance of a healthy environment to achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, according to a new report released at the second United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA2).

Muertes por contaminación. La contaminación y la degradación del medioambiente causan la muerte prematura de 12,6 millones de personas al año, cifra 234 veces superior a la que provocan los conflictos armados. Así lo revela un informe presentado este lunes en la inauguración de la segunda Asamblea de las Naciones Unidas para el Medioambiente (UNEA-2), que esta semana reúne en Nairobi a delegados de 173 países para establecer acuerdos que permitan un desarrollo sostenible. La asamblea, la institución más importante a nivel mundial en materia medioambiental, tiene por objetivo introducir una nueva perspectiva en la defensa de la naturaleza: la protección de la salud humana. "Nuestras economías matan a mucha gente en el nombre del desarrollo, una de cada cuatro o cinco muertes prematuras son causadas por nosotros mismos. Es lo que se llama matanza o asesinato", aseveró el director del Programa de Naciones Unidas sobre el Medio Ambiente (PNUMA), Achim Steiner.
