  • Sobre la teoría de la relatividad especial y general - Albert Einstein April 27, 2017

Mattias Wallander: Textile Recycling: (Don’t) Curb Your Enthusiasm

Textile recycling is becoming increasing popular, not just among green moms who are finding creative uses for old T-shirts and eco-conscious college students who are shopping at thrift stores, but also more and more with the municipalities that need to be focusing in on this important issue and have the ability to make a measurable impact on the amount of textiles going into landfills. With the EPA estimating that more than 85 percent of the over 13 million tons of textiles discarded in the U.S. annually ends up in the trash, we need to implement easy access to textile recycling. Obviously, discarded textiles are bad for the environment and clog up landfills but what is less understood is that they also damage city balance sheets. An urban area with a population of 50,000 annually pays for the handling and disposal of 3,000 tons of textiles. It looks like cities are finally taking note that recycling textiles doesn’t just cost them — but could actually help them earn too. Last month the town of Queen Creek, Arizona made headlines when they teamed up with a textile recycling company to expand their curbside recycling services to include the collection of items like towels, clothing, blankets, sheets and shoes — a first in the U.S. they say […]

Adrianna Quintero: Superstorm Sandy Reminds Us Why We Have to Care About Climate Change

Over the years I’ve written several blogs about the connection between extreme weather and climate change, so watching Sandy pummel the East Coast compelled me to revisit this issue once again. Watching the images of Sandy leaving a path of destruction brings back memories of the day after Hurricane Andrew hit my home in Miami back in 1992. The state of shock as my parents and I approached our storm ravaged home is still fresh in my memory even 20 years later as I see the faces of those who are experiencing the same today. My heart goes out to them. As a mother of two, I can’t help but think of the kids who just Sunday were obsessing over what candy they might collect on Halloween and whether or not their costume was just right, makes it even harder to watch. Yes, things will eventually return to normal for most but having lived it – I know it’s not a fast or easy road back to normalcy. Sandy truly lived up to its hype as a superstorm. Wind, water, flooding, even snow, has left one of our most densely populated areas paralyzed for days. […]

Mohsin Mohi-Ud Din: Sandy and What’s Missing Drom Public Discourse

Upon returning to the South Bronx after a summer working in the townships of South Africa with communities affected by HIV/AIDS, I had an epiphany: the ‘third world’ problems are actually in the backyard of the so-called developed world — the backyard of American cities and towns. As an American I had tricked myself into a convenient ignorance of the fact that what happens somewhere has little bearing on the direction of what happens in my country, America. As I look out my window after Hurricane Sandy today and see flooded NY streets, closures to Wall Street, flooded train tunnels, empty grocery stores, evacuated hospitals, and half of Manhattan in a blackout, I am reminded of my post-Africa/Bronx epiphany. The aerial image of a blacked-out North Korea and an electrified South Korea comes to mind when I see the darkness below 39th street in Manhattan or between Brooklyn and Lower Manhattan. Images of flooded villages in India or Thailand come to mind when seeing the flooded subway system and neighborhoods in downtown Manhattan and Hoboken, New Jersey. What we as Americans are so used to seeing on TV in some of the developing world is now blurred with our streets in America, increasingly so as we face the new normal of weather systems and climate change. Hurricane Sandy has claimed nearly 80 lives from the Caribbean through NY and NJ and will cost billions of dollars in infrastructure damages. While it is not possible to blame a phenomena such as Sandy on a single issue like climate change, it is plausible to reassess the pulse of our planet and the subsequent volatile weather systems that follow deteriorating planetary health. Climate change is a part of the puzzle. […]

Bernard David: Climate Change and Its Influence On Investing: A New Perspective

This post is adapted from remarks delivered at the Pacific Pension Institute 2007 Summer Roundtable, at the Empress Hotel in Victoria, British Columbia, July 25-27, 2007. Welcome and thank you for allowing me to share some of my views on climate change’s influence on investing: most particularly, the opportunities which I believe it creates for economic gain. How many of you take climate change into consideration in your investment decisions? My goal, today, is to convince you that climate change needs to be considered. And to show that investment decisions should be driven by science, and the basic needs of life. […]

Eli Lehrer: ‘Climate Silence’: It’s Just Common Sense

As any number of activists and journalists — nearly all of them on the Left — have noted, the two major party presidential candidates aren’t talking much about climate change. As someone on the Right who is concerned about climate change and its likely costs, I actually would have preferred more talk about the issue myself. But I also totally why the candidates didn’t talk about climate change: it isn’t a very important issue to the public now and probably won’t be in the near future. This isn’t a cause for inaction but, rather, a reason to simply be realistic about what is — and isn’t — going to be a high salience issue. […]
