The social and ecological footprint of a carne asada taco

Arizona to Antarctica

What is the ecological footprint of your lunch today? Seriously, think about what you brought with you, or where you went out to today. How much land was required to grow the crops or raise the animals involved? How much water did they require? What additional processes go into that food beyond just growing it, like the oil burned to ship ingredients to you?

Driving in to Hermosillo for a visit last year, the view through my windshield at a traffic light. Driving in to Hermosillo for a visit last year, the view through my windshield at a traffic light.

If you live in Tucson or in Hermosillo (or really in any city with increasing food cart culture now), your routine might include a visit to the nearest taco cart for some carne asada. And a team of researchers have now calculated the ecological footprint of all the carne asada from taco carts in Hermosillo. Their results will appear in a special issue of the Journal of the…

Prevención y gestión de residuos: definiciones normativas

Alimentos sin desperdicio

En dos entradas anteriores se presentaron las definiciones de residuo, residuo doméstico, residuo industrial, biorresiduo, etc., y de subproducto, tal y como establece la Ley 22/2011 de residuos y suelos contaminados, que es la transposición de la Directiva 2008/98/CE.

En la ley también se establecen una serie de definiciones que persiguen distinguir entre prevención, gestión de residuos, recogida, tratamiento, eliminación, valorización, reciclado, etc., que se tratan a continuación.

Antes conviene señalar el artículo 8 de la ley que establece que “la siguiente jerarquía de residuos servirá de orden de prioridades en la legislación y la política sobre la prevención y la gestión de los residuos”. Esta jerarquía se suele representar mediante una pirámide invertida para reflejar dichas prioridades:

Jerarquia de residuos

Tenemos entonces como prioridad la prevención (prevention) que tiene que ver con las “medidas adoptadas antes de que una sustancia, material o producto se haya…

Scott Pruitt to head up the Environmental Protection Agency

Breaking: News reports say Trump will nominate Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt as his choice to head up the Environmental Protection Agency.

Pruitt is straight up anti-EPA. As the Attorney General of Oklahoma, he led the state’s fight against the EPA’s efforts to rein in carbon pollution and protect our nation’s drinking water. Now he might lead the agency.

Just like his fellow Oklahoman Jim Inhofe, the leading climate denier and chair of the Senate Environment & Public Works Committee, Pruitt will be a CATASTROPHE for the planet.

This is a disaster. But there’s something we can do. EPA Administrator is a position that needs to be confirmed by Congress, and that means there’s going to be a public debate.

We can’t let them succeed. We must fight back against Pruitt’s confirmation.Hundreds of people have already pitched in to help fight back against Trump’s anti-science agenda — but we truly need everyone to get on board right now.

Fight back before it’s too late. Donate today and keep the environmental movement standing strong against Trump and corporate puppets like Pruitt.

NASA’s satellite data

a recent interview with one of Trump’s top advisers has revealed a plan to make deep cuts to NASA’s funding, specifically targeting NASA’s climate research. Unbelievable though it is, he called this basic Earth observation research “politicized science.”

We can’t let this happen. Cutting off NASA’s satellite data would be devastating and send us back to the dark ages.

Without NASA’s research, it could be next to impossible to track changes in our climate. Large-scale research initiatives that countries around the world rely on too could disappear.

Can we count on you to stand up for science? A group of donors is tripling every contribution right now — that means even $5 is enough to help.

Yes, triple match my gift »

We need your immediate support, Arnulfo. We can’t let Trump steamroll over basic science because he doesn’t like the results. Since the election, thousands of people have pitched in — here’s what it all goes towards:

  • Funding a massive campaign that goes hard after every dangerous executive action, nominee, and vote in Congress, coordinating with allies in new ways so that nothing slips through the cracks.
  • Bolstering our allies in the Senate to stand strong, use their bully pulpit, and form a “green” firewall to beat back attacks on sound science, our cornerstone environmental laws, and critical recent progress.
  • Holding key elected officials accountable, especially in the Senate, for their votes, words and actions, and expose those who push Trump’s anti-science agenda.
  • Mobilizing hundreds of thousands of activists, activating our grassroots networks and standing in solidarity with allies across the progressive movement.
  • Making progress in the states, where our state partners are ready to seize policy opportunities to advance solar power, renewables, and other climate solutions.
  • Laying the groundwork for 2017 and 2018, where key Governor and Senate races are already unfolding.

We can’t let Trump undo decades of environmental safeguards, Arnulfo. Please — in this critical moment, stand up and be counted.

Donate today. Don’t let Trump dismantle NASA and the EPA without a fight. A group of donors is tripling every contribution right now to help resist Trump’s agenda — so even $5 is enough to help »

The next four years may be the hardest we’ve ever faced but giving up just isn’t an option. We’ll keep you posted on what comes next — thanks so much for standing with us.

Standing Rock water protectors

On Sunday night, Water Protectors were met with water hoses in freezing temperatures, shot with rubber bullets, and sprayed with pepper spray. Over a hundred were injured, some seriously. It is more important than ever to stand with Standing Rock and denounce this violence against the peaceful Water Protectors.
The Water Protectors at Standing Rock need to know we’ve got their backs. Add your name »

The London Times in 1936

I take it you already know
Of tough and bough and cough and dough?
Others may stumble, but not you,
On hiccough, thorough, lough, and through?
Well done! And now you wish, perhaps,
To learn of less familiar traps?
Beware of heard, a dreadful word
That looks like beard and sounds like bird,
And dead: it’s said like bed, not bead—
For goodness sake don’t call it ‘deed’!
Watch out for meat and great and threat
(They rhyme with suite and straight and debt).
A moth is not a moth in mother,
Nor both in bother, broth in brother,
And here is not a match for there
Nor dear and fear for bear and pear;
And then there’s dose and rose and lose—
Just look them up—and goose and choose,
And cork and work and card and ward,
And font and front and word and sword,
And do and go and thwart and cart—
Come, come, I’ve hardly made a start!
A dreadful language? Man alive!
I’d mastered it when I was five!

DM: I want to be.
A: You lack focus, you´re a waste of time and energy.
DM: The creative part of the process of understanding is posing the right question.
A: There must be a systematic way to refine questions from disciplined work.
DM: Quantity as a source for quality
A: Not really, the praxis is the real teacher, not random ramblings by myself. Without interaction with reality, mental work is sterile. Even the greater minds are productive because of the interaction with reality.
DM: Well, yes but how do you connect perception with understanding? You need to connect with your inner self and brainstorming is maybe the only way.
A: Meditation and programmed sleep might be another better way. Brainstorming is noisy and understanding might drown among so much garbage.
DM: Relax my mean man. Until you relax, deep understanding will not come.
A: I see. But the idea is to concentrate in the process, regardless of consequences. Flow is a state of pure mind, one thing at a time.
DM: All these things you mention are necessary. It is a process. Some serendipity is essential, well, convenient, to find the right path in the darkness.
A: A good way to fall off a cliff.
DM: The end of life is always death. One must move forward to the end. Of course, a random walk might lead to oblivion, but most of the paths go forward.
A: Not true, empiric evidence is that most paths are paths of self-destruction.
DM: It is a matter of belief. You must trust your inner self; your inner strength, and wisdom. It is what you have and there is not use negating it.
A: You right. What about not getting distracted by what I think it should be vs what is?
DM: You must accept that at one point you would be wrong. You might or might not get a chance to recover and learn. Either way to play you cards is the objective of the game. Time is limited and you’re going to die whether you use your time to live or you sit to wait for time to be over.
A: Right. It is not a blind belief to always be right but the courage to act on what I have.
