Et si on se débarrassait de nos réfrigérateurs ? Au début des années 1920, le groupe américain General Motors dépose le nom « Frigidaire », aujourd’hui propriété d’Electrolux. Le « frigo » va entrer dans toutes les cuisines, et même dans le dictionnaire. Une petite révolution qui bouscule des siècles d’habitudes de conservation des aliments.

Il faudra tout de même attendre les années 1960 pour que ce nouvel appareil électrique, qui permet de garder au frais les denrées périssables, se généralise en France. En 1964, seuls 37 % des foyers français possèdent un réfrigérateur, dix ans plus tard, 88,4 % des familles en sont équipées. Ce succès tardif est intimement lié à l'urbanisation massive intervenue dans la seconde moitié du XXe siècle, explique Nathalie Damery, présidente de l’Observatoire société et consommation : « A la campagne, beaucoup de choses étaient dans le garde-manger, on gardait les boissons au frais dans la rivière.

Solar irradiance

It is not to be confused with Insulation. Solar irradiance is the power per unit area produced by the Sun in the form of electromagnetic radiation. Irradiance may be measured in space or at the Earth's surface after atmospheric absorption and scattering. Total solar irradiance (TSI), is a measure of the solar radiative power per unit area normal to the rays, incident on the Earth's upper atmosphere. Hard Evidence: meat means emissions – so which countries are doing the most damage? Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions created by humans are a primary cause of global warming.

Hard Evidence: meat means emissions – so which countries are doing the most damage?

While carbon dioxide emissions from the burning of fossil fuels and changes in land use make up the largest share of these emissions, non-CO2 greenhouse gases such as methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O) contribute substantially to overall warming and livestock – and the meat that we eat – is a big contributor. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) provides guidelines for estimating livestock emissions on a regional level. Direct emissions of methane and nitrous oxide from livestock worldwide has been recently estimated: they represent about 9% of total GHG emissions caused by human activity.

Then comes an enormous restructuring of capital — and with it a restructuring of labor — throwing past certainties into doubt. Old industries, companies, and occupations disappear and new ones emerge, enabled by new technologies.

Top 10 P2P Trends of 2015. Mindful Markets and Value Revolution. Brian Milani Mindful Markets, Value Revolution and the Green Economy: EPR, Certification and the New Regulation Under the radar of mass media and mainstream academia, a value revolution is taking place that is promising to transform humanity’s very notions of wealth and economic development.

Mindful Markets and Value Revolution

Designing the Green Economy. What They're Saying AboutDesigning the Green Economy "Brian Milani's Designing the Green Economy is a very timely and courageous book.

Designing the Green Economy

The author not only gives us a very convincing and well documented analysis of the reasons for the collapse of the post-war Fordist economy, the rise of neoliberal Casino Capitalism and why this economy produces more ‘illth’ than wealth. He also shows that a transition to an alternative Green Economy is both necessary and possible. For all those who begin to question the promises of those who, in the face of global economic, ecological and social crises, still continue with just ‘more of the same’, this book is a must. " Maria Mies, co-author, The Subsistence Perspective; and Ecofeminism; author, Patriarchy & Accumulation on a World Scale. The New Green Revolution: How Twenty-First-Century Science Can Feed the World. Some crises appear and disappear in global media while remaining acute in the lives of real people.

The New Green Revolution: How Twenty-First-Century Science Can Feed the World

Global food insecurity is this type of crisis. In January 2011 the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) warned that global food prices in December 2010 exceeded the 2008 peak during the so-called food price crisis that sparked “food riots” across Africa, Asia, and Latin America.1 The UN also warned that the price increase would not stop overnight and that we were entering “danger territory.”2 Although prices stabilized in the spring, global food prices in May 2011 remained higher than they were in June 2008. We will see more price spikes in the future, due to a growing discrepancy between supply and demand, the impacts of climate disruption on agricultural production, and the merger of the energy and food markets. The New Green Revolution: How Twenty-First-Century Science Can Feed the World. Foster 2014 The Theory of Unequal Ecological Exchange. Metabolic rift. Metabolic rift is Karl Marx's notion of the "irreparable rift in the interdependent process of social metabolism,"[1]—Marx's key conception of ecological crisis tendencies under capitalism.

Metabolic rift

Marx theorized a rupture in the metabolic interaction between humanity and the rest of nature emanating from capitalist production and the growing division between town and country. This concept has been widely used in recent years in various environmental discussions, particularly on the left. Pierre Bourdieu : Combattre la technocratie sur son terrain. - 12/12/95.

E suis ici pour dire notre soutien à tous ceux qui luttent, depuis trois semaines, contre la destruction d'une civilisation, associée à l'existence du service public, celle de l'égalite républicaine des droits, droits à l'éducation, à la sante, à la culture, à la recherche, à l'art, et, par-dessus tout, au travail. Je suis ici pour dire que nous comprenons ce mouvement profond, c'est-à-dire à la fois le désespoir et les espoirs qui s'y expriment, et que nous ressentons aussi ; pour dire que nous ne comprenons pas (ou que nous ne comprenons que trop ) ceux qui ne le comprennent pas, tel ce philosophe qui, dans le Journal du Dimanche du 10 décembre, découvre avec stupéfaction "le gouffre entre la compréhension rationnelle du monde", incarnée selon lui par Juppé - il le dit en toutes lettres -, "et le désir profond des gens". C'est cette certitude technocratique qu'exprime Juppé lorsqu'il s'écrie: "Je veux que la France soit un pays sérieux et un pays heureux".

Nicholas Georgescu-Roegen, La décroissance. Entropie - Écologie - Économie. 1. Jevons paradox. The Jevons paradox has been used to argue that energy conservation may be futile, as increased efficiency may increase fuel use. Nevertheless, increased efficiency can improve material living standards. Further, fuel use declines if increased efficiency is coupled with a green tax or other conservation policies that keep the cost of use the same (or higher).[3] As the Jevons paradox applies only to technological improvements that increase fuel efficiency, policies that impose conservation standards and increase costs do not display the paradox.

History[edit] The Jevons paradox was first described by the English economist William Stanley Jevons in his 1865 book The Coal Question. Jevons observed that England's consumption of coal soared after James Watt introduced his coal-fired steam engine, which greatly improved the efficiency of Thomas Newcomen's earlier design. Paradoxe de Jevons. Best Essays of 2015 (1): Bernard Stiegler on the New Desires of Post-Capitalism. A new society could arise on the same technological base that is now still predominantly destroying the social bonds. The digital networks might be the prime catalysts in the transformation from today’s consumer society into what he calls a ‘society of contribution’.

This is a strongly recommended interview to get to know the otherwise difficult writing of that most p2p of philosophers alive today, Bernard Stiegler, and whose ideas on the society of contribution, rather precisely match p2p theory, though at a much greater level of philosophical sophistication, for which the p2p/commons movement must be thankful to Stiegler.
