The Apocalypse for Bats?

The Apocalypse for Bats?   ???

Posted on August 22, 2014

Regarded by many as disease-carrying pests, bats are often feared and hated among the human populace. Yet, what many people fail to realize is that they play a vital role in our fragile ecosystem — they pollinate flowers, help disperse fruit seeds and eat insect pests, reducing the need for pesticides. With about 1,240 bat species worldwide, they are often taken for granted. Now, they are in major danger.

Flesh Eating Bacteria


How do you get it? 

An infection often occurs after eating raw seafood, especially raw or undercooked oysters. But be warned — this bacteria does not alter the appearance, taste, or odor of oysters. It can also enter your body through open wounds when swimming in water that is infected, or through a puncture wound from the spines of fish, such as tilapia or stingrays.

China’s ‘War on Pollution’ Helps Kick Coal Habit

China’s ‘War on Pollution’ Helps Kick Coal Habit 

Kieran Cooke, Climate News Network | September 5, 2014 9:45 am


There are still doubts. The statistics might be proved wrong. But it looks as if China might be starting to wean itself off its coal consumption habit.


China produces and consumes nearly as much coal as the rest of the world combined.
  Coal, the most polluting of all energy sources, has powered the growth of China’s flyaway economy. But as incomes have risen, so has pollution. The country is now the world’s No.1 emitter of greenhouse gases.


Latest figures indicate that change is on the way, spurred on by a much-vaunted government “war on pollution” campaign. The state-run National Development and Reform Commission reports that domestic coal output shrank over the first five months of 2014—the first such decline since the start of China’s rapid economic expansion back in the late 1980s.

Virtual Halt

Greenpeace, the environmental NGO, said in a recent analysis of China’s coal sector that growth in coal imports, which had been going up at an annual rate of between 13 percent and 20 percent in recent years, has come to a virtual halt.

Meanwhile, the official Xinhua news agency says Beijing—a city of nearly 12 million people—will ban the sale and use of coal in its six main districts by 2020.

Coal-fired factories and power plants around the Chinese capital are being shut down and replaced by natural gas facilities. Coal generated 25 percent of Beijing’s energy in 2012, and the aim is to bring that figure down to less than 10 percent by 2017. Other cities and regions are following Beijing’s lead.

Just how meaningful these cutbacks in coal use are is difficult to gauge. Air pollution—much of it caused by the burning of low-grade thermal coal—is not only a big environmental issue in China but also a political one as well.

China’s leaders have promised a population increasingly angry about the low quality of the air they breathe and the water they drink that the government is determined to tackle pollution.

Yet coal-fired power plants are still being built at a considerable pace, and many more are planned.

Some analysts argue that the present slowdown in China’s coal consumption is only temporary, the result of a dip in industrial output that will be reversed as soon as the economy roars ahead again.

Less Reliant


Others say the decline in coal consumption is part of a long-term trend. As China’s economy matures, becoming less dependent on heavy industrial goods and embarking on more hi-tech and service-oriented projects, the country will become ever more energy efficient—and less reliant on coal.

China might be the world’s biggest emitter of fossil fuel emissions, but it also has fast become a global leader in hydro, wind and solar power.


No one is suggesting that coal is going to be absent from China’s energy mix anytime soon. The lung-jarring pollution of many of China’s cities is likely still to be evident for some years yet. But coal is no longer king.

That’s bad news for big coal exporters to China, particularly Australia and Indonesia
 
But it’s potentially good news for millions in China who crave clean air. And it’s very good news for the planet.  ;D

This was 2012. If you think that was an "anomaly" never to be repeated, then you believe there really is a tiger in your tank.

What is the most Critically endangered of the worl's small cetacean species?   

 
The  vaquita Phocoena sinus is the most critically endangered of the world’s small cetacean species. Its distribution is limited to the Upper Gulf of California, Mexico, and its total population is estimated at about 150 individuals. The biggest threat vaquitas encounter is drowning in gillnets used by local fishermen. While Mexico’s government has declared this species to be a high conservation priority, saving it from extinction requires unprecedented international technical, economic, and political cooperation to ensure local sustainable livelihoods.

Hey Homo SAPS, I DIE in your nets! I guess that means I'm not "Fit" for SURVIVAL in your highly "evolved" apex predator industrialized profit over planet world, RIGHT?  >:(  You biosphere math challenged morons  are killing your future by allowing me to be killed along with thousands of other earthlings.
Nevertheless, I am consoled that at least some of you can add and subtract (see video  below). But make no mistake, if it's too late for me and my kind, it's also too late for your kind. Have a nice day.

Vaquita is pronounced NOT like VUH-QUIT-A  ; it's proper pronunciation is Va-Key-Tuh.  8)
