CLIMATE HOME NEWS

Once they’ve exhausted stories about sunscreen sales, travel disruption and health risks, the media may eventually, if a heatwave goes on long enough, think to mention climate change.

Things reached that peak in the UK this week, Soila Apparicio reports, with mainstream outlets like the BBC showing increased confidence in reporting on the science.

Human activity almost doubled the likelihood of the heatwave across northern Europe, according to the World Weather Attribution service.

“The logic that climate change will do this is inescapable – the world is becoming warmer, and so heatwaves like this are becoming more common,” said leading scientist Friederike Otto.

The heat complaints may seem over the top to readers from the tropics, but countries like the UK are poorly prepared for temperatures over 30C. The Met Office forecast a 20% chance of setting an all-time record high temperature on Friday, before the weather was set to cool off.                        Click here to continue reading

We are a one-of-a-kind magazine that provides local, regional, national and international information about women’s lives and education, performing and visual arts and writing, the environment, green living and sustainability and regional Western North Carolina business, people and events. “Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers. Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society. Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears. Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi Our Mission SheVille.org provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being. We focus primarily on the areas of education & health, business & finance, the arts & the environment. We are particularly interested in local & regional resources, organizations & events.
