2019 Aug.

The following are working notes for this month, Sept. 2019

“When the last tree has been cut down, the last fish caught, the last river poisoned, only then will we realize that one cannot eat money.” – Alanis Obomsawin

Go for the low hanging fruits Consume less – It’s virtually impossible to make sensible (environmenal / economic / social) forecasts for only a few months, let alone a ear, decade or century,

What is the cause of  our collective confusion, madness, and desperation, why now?   Perminate expansion, contractions, circular economy?
To avoide the worse we need to suppress the need/use of fossil fuels, now, by removing demaind, argo, transport, production.

First, new economics may offer better tools for policy development and analysis – I will discuss an example from the financial crisis. Second, new economics has the potential to change the way we think of the role of government and policy itself, yielding new ways of designing policies in general. Third, new economics offers the intriguing possibility of developing new political narratives – this is the least developed aspect of new economics, but perhaps the one with potential for greatest long-term impact.

La démographie, la technologie et la révolution sociétale (environnement, millenials, partage etc etc et donc déconsommation et bientôt décroissance).

This means considerably reorganising the world system, and the United States is the only state in position to make these revisions. Going into 2020, we should be looking for politicians who understand this and frame their climate strategy around the international arena. Climate change is a foreign policy issue. It’s not mainly a question of domestic energy policy, and it’s certainly not a question of lifestyle choices.

Even the phrase “Green New Deal” is little more than an act of discourse–the proposals which have been attached to it so far, both by Elizabeth Warren and by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, amount to little more than domestic infrastructure spending bills marketed with a green veneer. And so all too often it is the people who yell most loudly about our problems who are most thoroughly wasting everybody’s time, because their strategies are more about demonstrating virtue and radical bona fides than they are about confronting the deep underlying issues that make solving these problems so difficult.

’Nutrition’ is now a degenerating research paradigm in which scientifically illiterate methods, meaningless data, and consensus-driven censorship dominate the empirical landscape.

Researchers rethink mouse swim tests

Animal-welfare campaigners and scientists have growing concerns about a popular test in which mice or rats are dropped into a tank of water while researchers watch to see how long the animal tries to stay afloat. In theory, a depressed rodent will give up more quickly than a happy one. But mental-health researchers have become increasingly sceptical in recent years about whether the forced-swim test is a good model for depression in people.
