Uncharted Territory

The shipping #industry needs to deliver cleaner #cargo ships, or we’re all sunk.

The International Maritime Organization (IMO), the industry’s main regulator, suggests that #carbon emissions from shipping could shoot up as much as 250 percent by 2050 as the world’s population grows and economies expand. At that point, the European Parliament estimates the industry could produce 17 percent of global emissions, up from less than 3 percent today.

But Tristan Smith, a leading shipping researcher at University College London’s Energy Institute, notes comp

#OMG #climate #chance is really real and made by mankind ...

source: https://science2017.globalchange.gov/downloads/CSSR2017_FullReport.pdf
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change concluded that it is extremely likely that human influence has been the dominant cause of the observed warming since the mid-20th century. Over the last century, there are no alternative explanations supported by the #evidence that are either credible or that can contribute more than marginally to the observed patterns. There is no convincing evidence that natural variability can account for the amount of and the pattern of global warming observed over the industrial era.

How Smartphones #Hijack Our #Minds

“Smartphones have become so entangled with our existence that, even when we’re not peering or pawing at them, they tug at our #attention, diverting precious cognitive resources. Just suppressing the desire to check our #phone, which we do routinely and subconsciously throughout the day, can debilitate our thinking. The fact that most of us now habitually keep our phones 'nearby and in sight,' the researchers noted, only magnifies the mental toll," writes the Wall Street Journal.

How Smartphones Hijack Our Minds

Research suggests that as the brain grows dependent on phone technology, the intellect weakens.
 

The Coming #Software #Apocalypse

source: https://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2017/09/saving-the-world-from-code/540393/
More and more, critical systems that were once controlled mechanically, or by people, are coming to depend on #code. This was perhaps never clearer than in the summer of 2015, when on a single day, United Airlines grounded its fleet because of a problem with its departure-management system; trading was suspended on the New York Stock Exchange after an upgrade; the front page of The Wall Street Journal’s website crashed; and Seattle’s 911 system went down again, this time because a different router failed. The simultaneous failure of so many software systems smelled at first of a coordinated #cyberattack. Almost more frightening was the realization, late in the day, that it was just a coincidence.

The Rise of the Valkyries

In the alt-right, #women are the #future, and the #problem

source: https://harpers.org/archive/2017/09/the-rise-of-the-valkyries/
The question of why they’ve embarked on this crusade has a practical answer: No #movement can survive on #men alone. As one #female pundit recently wrote, the prospect of the alt-right attracting women “terrifies the left, and it should, because they know that once a threshold of female involvement is reached, there’s no going back.” The philosophical answer is more complex — as are the intellectual contortions women must perform to justify participating in a movement so hostile to their #freedom.

We will react under pressure, even if, by then, it will be too late to reverse or even slow down, in any relevant way, the warming trend.

Why We Are Naively Optimistic About Climate Change

Unfortunately, we are failing in the goal to make our children's world better than our own — and those who deny it won't have to see the consequences of their choices, says blogger Marcelo Gleiser.
 

#Study Links Most #Amazon Deforestation to 128 Slaughterhouses

Satellites are mechanical reporters of the Amazon deforestation process. By documenting the degradation and gaps created by the clear-cutting process over the years, they deliver the verdict: Two-thirds of the Amazon's deforested area has been turned into pastures.
Actually, we should reforest to mitigate #climate #change. Is #humanity too stupid, greedy or ignorant - for doing the opposite?

Palantir: the ‘special ops’ tech giant that wields as much real-world power as Google

Peter Thiel’s CIA-backed, data-mining firm honed its ‘crime predicting’ techniques against insurgents in Iraq. The same methods are now being sold to police departments. Will they inflame already tense relations between the public and the police?
