Living Planet Report

Living Planet Report
The Living Planet Report is the world's leading, science-based analysis on the health of our planet and the impact of human activity. Knowing we only have one planet, WWF believes that humanity can make better choices that translate into clear benefits for ecology, society and the economy today and in the long term. This latest edition of the Living Planet Report is not for the faint-hearted. One key point that jumps out is that the Living Planet Index (LPI), which measures more than 10,000 representative populations of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish, has declined by 52 per cent since 1970. Put another way, in less than two human generations, population sizes of vertebrate species have dropped by half. These are the living forms that constitute the fabric of the ecosystems which sustain life on Earth – and the barometer of what we are doing to our own planet, our only home. We are using nature’s gifts as if we had more than just one Earth at our disposal. Related:  Ecological footprintHållbar utvecklingAbreviaciones

Ecological footprint (Human) ecological footprint is a measurement of anthropogenic impact on earth. Two fields of science scope human impact on Earth; they are geospheric and biospheric sciences. Human activity is measured through ecological footprint research. Biosphere Measurements[edit] Standards and methodology are starting to emerge that measure the demand for natural capital that may be contrasted with the planet's ecological capacity to regenerate.[5] It represents the amount of biologically productive land and sea area necessary to supply the resources a human population consumes, and to assimilate associated waste. Although the term ecological footprint is widely used and well known,[7] it goes beyond the metaphor. Overview[edit] Ecological footprint analysis compares human demands on nature with the biosphere's ability to regenerate resources and provide services. In 2007, the average biologically productive area per person worldwide was approximately 1.8 global hectares (gha) per capita. [edit]

Hans Rosling 26 december 2013 kl 13:01 - Sommar & Vinter i P1 Torsdag 26 december 2013 kl 13:00 till 14:27 (Listan skapas med automatik och kompletteras efterhand. Fel kan förekomma.) Hans Rosling berättar hur han gjorde ett färgseendetest på Fidel Castro i Kuba 1993. Det var för att övertyga presidenten om att forskningen kring en epidemi av nerv- och synskador behövde göras på Roslings sätt. Han svarar också på vad medellivslängden för hela världens befolkning är idag. Ännu mindre andel svarade rätt på frågan hur många procent av världens ettåringar som fått mässlingsvaccin. Under 1960-talet födde världens kvinnor i genomsnitt 5 barn. Hans Rosling vill inte bli kallad optimist. Om Hans Rosling Professor vid Karolinska institutet och föreläsare.Hans Rosling är 65 år, född och bosatt i Uppsala. Har arbetat med internationell hälsa i 30 år, som föreläsare vid Uppsala universitet och Karolinska Institutet. Har deltagit i SVT:s På Spåret 2009. Var ”en av 100 tänkare vars idéer har format världen” enligt amerikanska magasinet Foreign Policy.

WWF: World has lost more than half its wildlife in 40 years The existence of Hawksbill sea turtles have been traced back 100 million years. Now they are critically endangered, the WWF says. As humans move more into the mountain gorillas' territory, the gorillas have been pushed farther up into the mountains, forcing them to endure dangerous and sometimes deadly conditions, the WWF report on the planet says. Amur Leopard, a rare species of leopard living on the borders of Russia and China, was the winner of the 2013 WWF award dedicated to the positive evolution of an endangered species, but remains critically endangered. Poachers and hunters are responsible for the early decline of black rhino population. Sumatran orangutans are losing their natural habitats to mining, palm oil and paper plantations. The South China tiger is considered "functionally extinct," as it has not been sighted in the wild for more than 25 years. Sumatran elephants come into conflict with humans due to the rapid expansion of palm oil plantations which destroy their habitat.

Ecological Footprint Quiz by Center for Sustainable Economy Tionde ronden Nyligen genomförde NO/SO/svenska ett arbete kring ”Hållbar utveckling”. Vinsterna med att arbeta tematiskt är många. Framför allt tror jag att det skapar en spännande och varierande undervisning för eleverna. Jag gillar skarpt när eleverna kommer på det klara med hur olika ämneskunskaper hänger ihop och får ett meningsfullt helhetsperspektiv. Jag ser det som viktigt att dela med mig av hur jag drämde till i tionde ronden. SO och NO tog genast tag i faktabitarna kring förnybara energikällor, vattenfrågor, global uppvärming och försurning av naturen. I sitt sommarprogram jämförde Johan Rockström, professor i miljövetenskap, människans situation på jorden med en boxningsmatch. I just den ronden, den tionde, befann sig klassen när vi gick över till skönlitterär läsning. Novellens fördelar är många. De fyra novellerna satte läsandet i ett sammanhang, gav förförståelse och ett kanske lite vidare syfte än mycket annat vi läst. En skrivuppgift kändes också angeläget att få in i arbetsgången.

: La lista de referencias (Normas APA) Las normas APA requieren la elaboración de una lista de referencias final. La lista de referencias al final de un trabajo debe ofrecer la información necesaria para identificar y poder recuperar las fuentes utilizadas específicamente en la preparación y fundamentación del mismo. Es imprescindible que cada una de las citas que se hayan intercalado en el texto tenga su referencia correspondiente en la lista final y, a la inversa, toda entrada en la lista de referencias debe haber sido citada dentro del texto. Dado que uno de los propósitos de la lista de referencias es permitir al lector recuperar y usar las fuentes citadas, los datos de la referencia deben ser correctos y completos. Cada entrada contiene generalmente los siguientes elementos: autor, año de publicación, título y datos de la publicación (lugar y editorial). Si necesitas citar otro tipos de documentos, puedes consultar el Manual de publicaciones de la APA (p. 180-224). Pautas generales Ejemplo: Allport, A. Un solo autor Ejemplos:

Greenhouse gas emissions rise at fastest rate for 30 years | Environment Surging carbon dioxide levels have pushed greenhouse gases to record highs in the atmosphere, the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) has said. Concentrations of carbon dioxide, the major cause of global warming, increased at their fastest rate for 30 years in 2013, despite warnings from the world’s scientists of the need to cut emissions to halt temperature rises. Experts warned that the world was “running out of time” to reverse rising levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) to tackle climate change. Data show levels of the gas increased more between 2012 and 2013 than during any other year since 1984, possibly due to less uptake of carbon dioxide by ecosystems such as forests, as well as rising CO2 emissions. The annual greenhouse gas bulletin from the WMO showed that in 2013 concentrations of CO2 in the atmosphere were 142% of what they were before the Industrial Revolution. “We must reverse this trend by cutting emissions of CO2 and other greenhouse gases across the board.

Ecological Footprint - Home Please note that this website will be shut down at the end of 2013. You can find other ecological footprint calculators at the Global Footprint Network and the WWF-Australia websites. People often get disillusioned by sustainability, saying it is too complicated to understand, when in actual fact it is really quite simple. Think of it this way: every human activity consumes resources from the planet and produces waste that the planet must then deal with. We can even measure how close we are to a sustainable society. By exploring our Ecological Footprint pages, you can find out about Ecological Footprint, what Australia's Footprint looks like in comparison to the rest of the world, and how you can calculate your own Ecological Footprint (or that of your home, office, school, retail, or event).
