:: Eco-Farming Can Double Food Production in 10 Years, says new UN report

Small-scale farmers can double food production within 10 years in critical regions by using ecological methods, a new UN report* shows. Based on an extensive review of the recent scientific literature, the study calls for a fundamental shift towards agroecology as a way to boost food production and improve the situation of the poorest.

:: Solidarity with Yunus - to prevent the nationalization of the Grameen Bank

The government and Central Bank of Bangladesh is presently operating the expulsion of the Nobel Peace Prize winner Prof. Muhammad Yunus founded by him from the "bank for the poor," Grameen. Instead there will now take over the state power. Grameen Bank is currently one of the poorest themselves as cooperative with the open letter we want to prevent this scandalous nationalization of the most successful "Bank of the Poor". Every vote counts support. We ask everyone to participate in this action and each one's friends to call attention.

:: A Global Open Space geared towards action

Just like last year’s World Social Forum held in Belem (Brazil), the Forum in Dakar took place under the impression of the deep crisis of neoliberal globalization. Whereas the economy has recovered for some time already in some regions of the world, it started to do so recently in others. But all that cannot hide the existence of deep social, economic and ecological problems. The WSF provided a meeting point for a broad range of individuals originating in movements and civil society who hope to overcome neoliberal globalization: Either by establishing social and ecological regulations, for instance by implementing a “Green New Deal”, or by breaking with capitalism in general. This range of political alternatives characterized this WSF, just as the alterglobalist movement in general. In the run up to Dakar, Gustave Massiah (2011a & 2011b)* wrote a widely acknowledged book and published 12 theses on the alterglobalist movement. By Sven Giegold

:: Extension of energy production from biomass requires careful consideration

Energy production from plants could provide up to twenty percent of the world's energy demand in 2050, half of it from biomass plantations alone – but only at the price of a substantial expansion of land used for cultivation, to the expense of nature. This is the finding of a study carried out by the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) “which for the first time determines the potential and the risks of energy production from biomass plantations in a complex biogeochemical computer simulation,“ lead author Tim Beringer says. Human land use could increase by ten to thirty percent, depending on the scenario, and irrigation water demand could double.

:: Talk at Cancun is of 2 degrees Celsius – even 1.5 degrees would have effects lasting centuries

Even global warming of just 1.5 degrees Celsius would have consequences for centuries. The oceans store elevated temperatures for a longer time than was previously thought. This is due to a change in ocean-atmosphere heat exchange, scientists of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research discovered. Heat in lower oceanic layers is trapped by a cooling of upper layers, says a study which is about to be published in the journal Earth System Dynamics.
