They Paved Paradise and Put Up a Solar Parking Lot

“I have seen this story all over the place, touting some Indian airport that will, gasp, entirely power itself with solar. Look at the picture environmentalists”

Loss of habitat. Can’t grow food. Looks like a parking lot full of shiny cars. So it’s not good for animals, people and it’s ugly. Progress?

Two Indian Sisters Ordered to Be Raped by Village Council Beg Supreme Court for Help

TonyR:

You have to go to the Supreme Court in India to stop this brutality? Shouldn’t the council that created this ruling be in jail?

Originally posted on TIME:

A petition to save two sisters in India from being raped and publicly humiliated for their brother’s actions, a punishment handed down by an unofficial village council, has gathered considerable support for its demand that authorities intervene and stop the “disgusting ruling” from being enforced.

The petition by human-rights organization Amnesty International has garnered over 16,000 signatures thus far, and calls for law enforcement to stop the council-sanctioned rape of 23-year-old Meenakshi Kumari and her 15-year-old sister in Baghpat village in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh.

The unelected council of elders ordered that Kumari and her sister — both members of the low Dalit caste — be raped and paraded naked with blackened faces, after their brother eloped with a married woman of a higher caste. He and the woman, who belongs to the dominant Jat caste, were in love and eloped after she was forced to marry…

Trees, Sun and C02

CO2 Science

“This work revealed, in the words of the six scientists, that “relative to the 1950-2013 C.E. average summer temperature, three prominent cold periods stand out, two in the mid-fifteenth century, and one in the late seventeenth century.” And they say that these “anomalously cold periods appear to align with solar irradiance minima in the fifteenth, late seventeenth, and early nineteenth centuries, implying a link between solar variability and decadal-scale temperature variability.”

At the other end of the temperature spectrum, they report that “the warmest period occurs within the most recent decade, 2004-2013 C.E.” But, most interestingly, they say that “this period is not statistically unprecedented compared with earlier warm periods, e.g., in the 1650s and late fourteenth century” (see figure below), during which time intervals there was way less CO2 in Earth’s atmosphere (~280 ppm) than there is today (~400 ppm).

Taken together, the two sets of findings reported above suggest that real-world variations in solar radiation reception at the Earth’s surface clearly have strong impacts on the planet’s surface air temperature, but that even greater variations in the Earth’s atmospheric CO2 concentration do not.”
