Fondation Nicolas Hulot For the past 40 years I have been travelling the world, a witness to its slow destruction. I have decided to become a player in its reconstruction. To share my belief and my rallying call, I wrote Osons. 12 concrete propositions to the attention of the States and an appeal to everybody to put pressure on their decisions. Together, let’s call on the Heads of State to address the challenges posed by climate change. We, as citizens of the world, are asking the political leaders of the wealthiest countries and the largest emitters of greenhouse gases to finally meet the climate challenge. Dear world leaders, DARE TO TAKE ACTION! Marijuana cannabinoids - oral and transdermal methods The research indicates that cannabinoids hold the secret to helping heal many of the chronic diseases we are facing. From cancer to diabetes, and from autism to Alzheimer's, medical marijuana helps, and sometimes dramatically so. Cannabinoid medicine holds a great power to alleviate human suffering. There are no words to describe how important this substance is for our race in terms of sanity, compassion and highly rational medicine. Although medical marijuana is nontoxic, smoking it can be hazardous over the long term because toxic compounds are created in the combustion process. Fortunately there are options for the administration of cannabis but in general all different ways of administrating hemp oil or raw marijuana can be combined with no harmful side effects.
The Energy Report A fully sustainable and renewable global energy system is possible by 2050 Published: 03/02/2011 The Energy Report presents a possible transition to a global, sustainable energy system. A Guide to Alternative Paris As well as the flea markets, Paris has numerous popular markets everyday in different neighborhoods. They sell mostly fruit and veg but there are fish mongers and butchers as well. Depending of course on the area, these markets can vary from over priced and bourgeois to really cheap and hectic. Cancel The Apocalypse: The New Path To Prosperity: Amazon.co.uk: Andrew Simms: Books Andrew Simms wants us to face the challenges of climate change with a positive approach rather than constant talk of doom and gloom. In the opening chapter he promises that this book will look at practical steps we can take to address the dangers of climate change, steps that will induce governments to follow our lead. The science of climate change is well understood, even if the consequences are far less clear. Predictive models always involve high degrees of uncertainty when applied to complex systems, but this does not absolve us from trying to anticipate and manage risks.
Standing up for Nature Most unfairly ignored UK bird? Photo: Chris Cant via wikimedia commons What is the UK’s most unfairly ignored bird? Well according to you, and your votes, it is the Stock Dove (and I agree with you)! This wasn’t the most popular poll on this blog, but nearly 150 of you responded and this was the result: Finding a place to live The cost of housing varies widely, but international students, like French students, are eligible for housing assistance. It is reassuring to make housing arrangements before leaving for France. This is possible if you are able to secure a room in a university residence managed by CROUS, the regional student-service agency (although spaces in CROUS buildings are largely reserved for recipients of French government scholarships and students participating in exchange programs) or if you plan to attend an institution that maintains its own student residences.
Do Good Lives Have to Cost the Earth?: Amazon.co.uk: Andrew Simms, Joe Smith: Books This book argues that what doesn't work for human happiness and wellbeing doesn't work well for the planet. Good lives should not, indeed ought not to be allowed to cost the earth. The argument, delivered trough a fractured prism of more than 20 (British) voices, unfolds at two levels. First there is the growing body of science that shows how increasing levels of affluence do not translate automatically into a greater sense of wellbeing. Above a certain, fairly modest level of material and financial security, intangibles such as family relationships, meaningful work and health become much more important predictors of happiness than income. However, our selfishly capitalist society works hard to keep us onto the "hedonic treadmill" and make us forget these essentials.
