Environmental Crisis and News

Disaster and Global Emergency

Flood and Tsunami

Most of us have begun to see that the party is over. The planet is in deep trouble; we had better concentrate on bailing it out.
Mary Midgley

Or: ...We may with time and luck climb back to ancient China or Peru. But the ready ores and fossil fuels are gone. Without coal there can be no Industrial Revolution; without oil no leap from steam to atom. Technology will sit forever at the bottom of a ladder from which the lower rungs are gone. And how heavily the fallen knowledge will lie upon any who hope to resurrect it!
Ronald Wright

For the South Asian earthquake and tsunami of 26 December 2004, see The Great South Asian Disaster of 26 Dec 2004; for extreme weather events, see also Severe Weather; for anthropogenic crises, see Environmental Crisis and News, especially Global Warming, and Global Peace and Security and State of the World; for the existential crisis posed by science denialism, see Corporate Crime and Accountability and Pseudoscience: Content and Critique, especially Confusionism: Deceit, Denial, and the Policy of Abuse.
