Where Are India’s Heat Hotspots?

This commentary originally appeared in The Rand Blog. by Gulrez Shah Azhar and Jaime Madrigano Heat waves across the world have killed tens of thousands of people since the turn of the century. In the U.S., more people die from deaths related to heat than all other natural phenomena combined. Parts of West Asia are expected to become inhospitable to human life by the end of this century. And in recent years, India and neighboring regions have experienced several devastating heat waves, causing the country to increasingly focus on a growing global concern—rising temperatures as a public health threat.

Trump’s Second Army Secretary Pick Withdraws

Tennessee State Sen. Mark Green on Friday withdrew his nomination to be President Trump’s secretary of the Army, citing “false and misleading attacks” against him for his often incendiary comments on LGBTQ rights, evolution, and Muslims. Green has come under considerable fire by advocacy groups and political figures, both left and right, for his comments such as claiming that opposing transgender equality is part of his personal efforts to “fight evil.” Green has maintained that any controversy over his remarks has been a “false attack” by liberals attempting to cut him down, and his statement declaring his withdrawal focused on that: “Tragically, my life of public service and my Christian beliefs have been mischaracterized and attacked by a few on the other side of the aisle for political gain,” he wrote Friday. “While these false attacks have no bearing on the needs of the Army or my qualifications to serve, I believe it is critical to give the President the ability to move forward with his vision.” Green is the second Army secretary nominee to back out of consideration; Vincent Viola did the same in February, citing difficulty in separating his business interests.

Paris Climate Agreement Could Create Jobs For Rural America

Based on news report coming out of Washington, it appears our county’s commitment to the landmark Paris climate agreement could be in question. It shouldn’t be. The Paris agreement is notable for many reasons, including recognition that every nation must contribute and every climate solution must be used, including techniques like carbon capture in forests that provide appealing “win-win” opportunities for our country. Given today’s politically polarized dialogue on climate change, it is no surprise that newly empowered conservative political leaders in Washington would re-examine this historic commitment that took effect last fall. After all, the new administration and Congress are scrutinizing federal policy on a number of issues subject to political conflict in recent years, such as immigration and health care. Yet, this re-evaluation of the Paris agreement could turn out to be positive for the longer term if done right. Our current political leaders will discover that the Paris agreement and the United States’ “Nationally Determined Contribution” under that agreement align well with many conservative principles for problem solving. For example, the Paris agreement:· Requires fast-growing nations like China to participate· Gives each nation flexibility to craft its own Nationally Determined Contribution, and leaves room for countries to refine and evolve their climate strategies over time· Recognizes the opportunity to capture carbon through forests, which could be leveraged to create jobs in rural areas in the U.S. and around the worldWhile all of these items are important to conservative principles, I want to focus on the last item—the potential role of forests in reducing carbon emissions—as a uniquely powerful opportunity to build consensus for climate action.If you’re wondering why forests are involved in an agreement to address climate change, let me explain how forests offer a powerful climate solution. Forests act like natural carbon scrubbers for our carbon emissions thanks to the process of photosynthesis, through which trees draw carbon dioxide from the air and release oxygen. […]

Yes, Climate Change Matters: International Scientists Appeal To Trump On His First 100 Days

By Maty Konte, United Nations University; Joice Ferreira, Federal University of Pará; Sandrine Maljean-Dubois, Aix-Marseille Université , and Shobhakar Dhakal, Asian Institute of Technology US President Donald Trump has called global warming a “hoax” perpetrated by the Chinese and appointed a foe of environmental regulations to head up America’s Environmental Protection Agency. On April 22, which annually marks Earth Day, thousands of scientists around the globe marched to defend the role of science, research and facts in society today against repeated attacks from the White House. New York’s March for Science drew an estimated 20,000 people. Stephan Schmidt As the US president rounds the bend of his first 100 days, The Conversation Global has invited scientists from Africa, Southeast Asia, Latin America and Europe to explain why climate change is real, and how it’s impacting life where they live. Maty Konte – Climate change is ‘not gender neutral’ The UN goal of achieving inclusive and sustainable development across the world by 2030 will be impossible without the participation of women in developing nations, including in Africa. But empowering women will be impossible if we don’t do something to mitigate the impacts of climate change. Climate change hinders the empowerment of many poor women and girls from rural areas. First, women represent more than half the workers in the agricultural sector in Africa, where insufficient infrastructure is exacerbated by the effects of climate change. […]

An Earth Day Expletive

(Update: April 21, 2017) Evidence is accumulating that climate change will be the defining event of the 21st century and yet, in the 2016 election that delivered Donald Trump to the White House, network television news devoted less than one hour, cumulatively, to the subject. In Western democracies, climate change is already an accelerant for mass migration, a topic of political campaigns and media attention. From a Hobbesian perspective and through the lens of climate change, the focus on national security is a matter of locking in privileges of the first world. Still, to imagine that anyone can spend their way out of climate change is pure, unmitigated folly. Of the planet’s approximately 7.5 billion people, only a small percent live in first world conditions and above the poverty line. At the fringes, climate change is compounding misery. Today, the world is in the midst of the largest migration of distressed populations since the end of World War II. […]

Why Small-Scale Farming Is Our Best Hope For Restoring Rural America (And Combatting Climate Change)

Boarded-up business districts. Abandoned warehouses. Barns and homes covered by tarps slowly collapsing into the earth. It was startling how often this scene repeated as I drove through the rural areas of the Midwest, South, and West on the road trip that resulted in the book The Revolution Where You Live. Many of these are the same areas that famously voted for a loudmouth New Yorker. For some, he better represented conservative, rural values than Hillary Clinton did. These devastated regions, where opioid addiction is at epidemic levels, are places that ran out of hope. The cynical and bankrupt answers offered up by the 45th president will not bring prosperity to these regions. But neither would the corporate-friendly policies of a President Hillary Clinton and others in her wing of the Democratic Party […]
