Climate change: geoengineering could help, says new study – Vox

A new study says geoengineering could cut global warming in half — with no bad side effects.

By Sigal Samuel Mar 13, 2019, 2:40pm EDT

If you think pumping the sky full of chemicals sounds like a weird way to fight climate change, you’re not alone. Solar geoengineering — the idea of injecting aerosols into the high atmosphere to reflect sunlight back into space and make for a cooler planet — is very controversial. And not just because it seems so offbeat.

Although geoengineering is not yet being deployed in the real world, past computer modeling studies have suggested it could produce unintended effects like droughts. Some have worried that it might create new climate inequities, worsening the weather in some regions even as it improves conditions in others. It’s incurred so much backlash that until recently it’s been taboo among scientists, and even today, much less attention is devoted to exploring this strategy than to cutting emissions.

But a study published this week in Nature Climate Change argues that the strategy could be highly successful — it’s all a matter of how much geoengineering we use. Yes, spraying a huge quantity of aerosols aimed at totally eliminating global warming can produce unwanted effects. Yet applying the right “dose” — just enough to cut global warming in half — could do the trick without causing negative side effects, the scientists say.

Study: Pollution Disproportionately Affects Minorities But Caused by White People

Mar 13, 2019

Back in the U.S., a new study finds that Latinx and black communities suffer the most from the effects of pollution, despite white Americans disproportionately creating more emissions. The report, published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, says that Latinx and black Americans are exposed to over 50 percent more fine particulate matter than is directly caused by their consumption habits, while white people are exposed to 17 percent less pollution than they are responsible for. Particulate matter comes from industrial pollution, coal-fired power plants, agriculture and vehicular pollution.

Cheating, Bribes & Lies: DOJ Charges Dozens of Rich Parents & Coaches in College Admission Scandal

Democracy Now!

Published on Mar 13, 2019

Operation Varsity Blues — that’s the name of a sweeping federal probe into what the Justice Department calls the biggest college admissions scam the agency has ever uncovered. On Tuesday, 50 people, including 13 college coaches, were arrested for taking part in a scheme where wealthy parents paid exorbitant bribes to secure spots for their unqualified children in elite schools, including Yale, Stanford, Georgetown, UCLA, USC and Wake Forest. Prosecutors have charged 33 parents, including Hollywood stars Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin; Loughlin’s husband, the fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli; and Bill McGlashan, a founder of TPG Capital, one of the largest private equity investment firms in the world. We speak with Ivory Toldson, professor of counseling psychology at Howard University and president of Quality Education for Minorities. His new book is titled “No BS (Bad Stats): Black People Need People Who Believe in Black People Enough Not to Believe Every Bad Thing They Hear About Black People.”

The Negroes before the slave trade – 3 Parts

The Negroes before the slave trade(1)

THE RENAISSANCE
Published on Jul 11, 2018

Have you ever imagined what the Negroes lives were like prior to the brutal slave trade of between 1434 – 1900? Have you ever tried to imagine how many Negroes were captured and shipped as slaves to the different parts of the world? Have you ever heard about a group called Hebrew Israelites? Have you ever tried to understudy why they believe that slavery and slave trade was custom made for them?

In this video, we tried to examine some of the Hebrew Israelites claims and how they do not align with historical facts. We also examined the need for Negroes to make every effort to study and understand what lies are being told about the slave trade.

What Happened to the Chinese Explorers that Landed in East Africa? History of Chinese in Africa


MasamanPublished on Aug 27, 2017

Today we’re going to discuss the Chinese explorers that landed in the East African country of Kenya approximately 600 years ago, and what happened to their descendants, along with discussing Chinese and East Asian history in the continent of Africa. Keep in mind, I am not directly supporting the actions of Chinese investors or businesses in Africa with this video, merely analyzing the historic relations between East Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa. Migration between the two regions is not one way, of course, but that’s a video for a different day. Further Reading: http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/english/…
