Artigos interessantes que li durante a semana sobre questões ambientais, divirta-se!


Interesting articles on environmental issues I read this last week. Enjoy!

Keeping it in the community, The Economist
"Most forests are claimed and mismanaged by governments. That can also mean dispossessing local people who, denied ownership of a forest they may have considered their own for centuries, tend to become protagonists in its destruction. An obvious solution is to put the forest back in local hands. Once they have tenure, it is argued, local people will regain their incentive to manage the forest sustainably, and trees and people will both flourish."

My Resignation From The American Physical Society, Hal Lewis
"It is of course, the global warming scam, with the (literally) trillions of dollars driving it, that has corrupted so many scientists, and has carried APS before it like a rogue wave. It is the greatest and most successful pseudoscientific fraud I have seen in my long life as a physicist. Anyone who has the faintest doubt that this is so should force himself to read the ClimateGate documents, which lay it bare. (Montford's book organizes the facts very well.) I don't believe that any real physicist, nay scientist, can read that stuff without revulsion. I would almost make that revulsion a definition of the word scientist."

Reform the IPCC for the sake of science, Matt Ridley
"One of the most shocking things for those who champion science, as I do, has been the sight of the science Establishment reacting to each scandal in climate science with indifference or contempt. The contrast with the thorough investigation of the Hauser affair is striking."

A Amazônia contra Dilma Rousseff, Veja
"A represa de Belo Monte, peça-chave do PAC, inundaria uma superfície de selva de 1 500 quilômetros quadrados, varreria do mapa duas dezenas de assentamentos de agricultores e secaria o rio no tramo de Volta Grande, onde passa por diversas aldeias indígenas. Dezenas de milhares de pessoas perderiam suas casas."
