2) Water released by plants into the atmosphere through evapotranspiration and to the ocean by the rivers, influences world #climate and the circulation of ocean currents. This works as a feedback mechanism, as the process also sustains the regional climate on which it depends...

Scientists are noticing something disturbing in the #AmazonRainforest - the hydrological engine is beginning to fail. One factor is the El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO), a climatic phenomenon which influences much of the climatic...

Sisa makanan boleh dijadikan sebagai biofuel. Hal ini adalah kerana sisa makanan mempunyai kandungan karbohidrat dan lipid yang menjadikan ia sumber yang sesuai untuk menghasilkan biofuel.
Usaha ini dapat mengurangkan kebergantungan kepada kawasan pembuangan sampah (landfill) dan mengurangkan pencemaran alam sekitar. Kawasan pembuangan sampah acap kali membebaskan gas rumah hijau seperti metana.
Ia juga menghasilkan leachate yang boleh menyebabkan pencemaran kepada kawasan tanah berdekatan. Proses penukaran sisa makanan kepada biofuel ini mengambil manfaat daripada respirasi anaerobik bakteria ke atas sisa makanan dalam ketiadaan oksigen.

The genie for the far-left🧞‍♂️
otherwise known as President Biden

leads the executive gov agencies & the DEA to gamify pain medicine in order to "stop" the opioid crisis

Making it harder for your family to get help when you need it

#drugs #health #journalism #politics @JoeBiden
Biden allows DEA & others to radically expand unconstitutional powers & eliminate patient privacy like HIPPA

Making it so there is nothing in health

We call upon the Irish Government to #stopCETA!

CETA could devastate efforts to enact progressive legislation on housing, health, labour, env & climate.

🇮🇪 is not obliged to ratify CETA and there is no compelling rationale in favour of doing so! 🧵

businesspost.ie/legal/comment-…
The trade related chapters of CETA were ratified by the European Parliament in 2017.

The investment chapter of CETA [allowing companies to sue countries] will only come into effect if the agreement is ratified by all 27 EU member states - including Ireland.
The ratification of CETA (i.e. the investment chapters of the agreement) could enable corporations to try to sue governments under a special "Investor Court System" (ICS) - a mechanism that would bypass our own domestic and EU Courts.

4/ag Here's a solution for "experts on everything" looking for political solutions: Central Govt should #abolish the #APMC Act and the #ECA, along with the 3 new agri laws, and leave every State to make own Agricultural laws. Then they'll be responsible/ accountable to voters!
5/ag Subject to proviso, that States cannot stop inter-state trade in agricultural goods, which framers of the constitution, correctly put under Union Govt's purview. Nor can States force CG to take any action which is responsibility of State, nor obstruct anything in Union list!

We started as #Kenya's 1st Wholly Foreign-owned enterprise in Beijing, #China with three core values, and a vision to be a lean, mission-driven international #development consultancy like no other. Since then, we've brought in experts from 23+ countries to join our journey. 2/ Image
We decided from the beginning to be demand-driven and independent, yet focused #beyondaid, and as a result our work so far on #globaldev has been incredibly varied but always fascinating. 3/ Image

Five years ago today, USFWS banned 201 species of #salamanders from entering the US to prevent a #chytrid extinction crisis (see here: fws.gov/injuriouswildl…) Unfortunately #frogs can also carry this pathogen & their door remains wide open: nationalgeographic.com/animals/2020/0… #WildlifeTrade
As a freelance #WildlifeTrade scientist, my work integrates #science & policy to help reduce potential harm trade may cause. The example above shows the dangers that occur when government laws & policies don't keep up with scientific progress (2/N) @NatGeo #nature #OneHealth Image
After @USFWS enacted the 2016 #WildlifeTrade restriction to help keep this deadly fungus out of the US, it was found that frogs can also carry this "#salamander" pathogen. Thus #frogs might be carrying 2 species of #chytrid into the US (see brill.com/view/journals/…) #SciComm (3/N) Image
