Im reading a book by Peter Farb who has some insights on how human civilization came to be
going back 80,000 years.Though some of his books were written in the 1970s.The path to being human is full of details that stay true to 2015.I feel very lucky to even find this author.triffid

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Farb   I am reading his book"Humankind"cc 1978.

He died in 1980.

He came up with a paradox: "Intensification of production to feed an increased population leads to a still greater increase in population."

http://www.research.vt.edu/resmag/2002summer/forest.html  More to a forest than trees.

Non-timber forest products (NTFPs), as a market sector, is growing rapidly — nearly 20 percent per year in recent years.

Non-timber forest products are any plant-based material of commercial value, other than trees, harvested from forests. Such products have specialty or niche markets, and many are valuable commodities with the potential to generate significant economic activity at the community level. But to realize their value, the ecosystems in which these plants thrive must also be valued.

The Appalachian region is rich in biodiversity, offering great potential to support a flourishing non-timber forest product industry. Most of the 130 plants indigenous to the United States that are used as medicinal or dietary supplements are found in the southern Appalachian Mountains.

Medicinal plants, such as St. Johns wort or ginseng, have the highest profile. Traditionally, they formed the basis for medical care in rural southern Appalachia. With the advent of inexpensive synthetic and manufactured medicines, natural healing became less common, but knowledge of plant properties is still passed down and many people continue to gather herbs for their own use.

Natural medicinal and herbal products involve the use of leaves, stems, roots, bark, seeds, fruit, flowers, and buds to make teas, tonics, powder, snuff, poultices, salves, tinctures, lotions, and smoke inhalers. Plants provide treatments for pain and such diseases as cancer, leukemia, and heart disease. More than 40 percent of prescription drugs — translating into $25 billion in sales for 1997 — contain at least one natural element. Moreover, the demand for natural health supplements is skyrocketing. “The soaring demand is creating an environmental tension as growing consumer interest jeopardizes these products’ sustainablity in the wild,” Hammett says.

In 1998, a coalition of scientists, conservation organizations, botanical gardens, and museums released the results of a 20-year global assessment of plants at risk, which established a conservative estimate that 29 percent of America’s 16,000 plant species are at risk of extinction due to overharvesting and loss of habitat to development.

In addition to the medicinal and dietary supplements, the other popular non-timber forest products include edible forest products, such as mushrooms, herbs, and spices. The decorative or floral sector encompasses pine boughs, grapevines, ferns, flowers, Spanish moss, and other plant products used for floral arrangements, dried flower decorations, and ornaments. Specialty wood products include baskets, carvings, turnings, utensils, containers, furniture, and musical instruments.

I PM's an e-mail to triffid, and I've decided to share it with you Members and viewing Internet public as well...

triffid,
       I've seen, here in S.F., something that causes me REAL concern...
Homeless bums that live on the streets are buying wilderness survivor-type tents and pitching them in GROUPS of 2 to 10 individuals under freeway overpass bridges.   Never saw that before.
       Also, so many bums sleep on the hard concrete floors in Local subways, that the Local cops don't bother to harass them like they did in the past.  There's simply too many of them to arrest and prosecute in  Municipal Court.
       To put it simply, there's like an army of these people and they'll probably never work again.   That's one more reason I started the, "I see an Economic Disaster Coming... thread.

What do you think?

--Lee

From this perspective, Russia is not so much an insecure superpower as it is a typical petrostate with a short-term horizon that gets aggressive and ambitious once it accumulates substantive oil revenues. Back in the early 2000s when the price of oil was $25 a barrel, Putin was a friend of the United States and didn’t mind NATO enlargement in 2004. According to Hendrix’s research, this is exactly how petrostates behave when the oil prices are low: In fact, at oil prices below $33 a barrel, oil exporters become much more peaceful than even non-petrostates. Back in 2002 when the Urals price was around $20, in his Address to the Federal Assembly Putin enumerated multiple steps to European integration and active collaboration aimed at creating a single economic space with the European Union among Russia’s top priorities. In 2014 – with the price of oil price around $110 – Putin invaded Ukraine to punish it for the attempts to create that same single economic space with the E.U.

oil and gas.

But is it possible that the true explanation is even simpler? Could it be, in fact, that Russia's decision to invade Ukraine had merely to do with a handful of natural gas discoveries off the coasts of Romania and Ukraine?
I ask this question somewhat rhetorically, because I think the answer may be "yes." As Bloomberg reported in the middle of last year, the Black Sea remains "almost untouched by the oil industry, with fewer than 100 wells drilled, compared with more than 7,000 in the North Sea."

Some more reasons:By all appearances, the ouster of now-former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych -- who, as is well known at this point, was backed by the political establishment in Russia -- stemmed from his regime's widespread and deep-seated corruption. According to its new finance minister -- who is obviously not unbiased -- as much as $70 billion was embezzled out of the country over the past three years alone.
In this regard, the Ukrainian revolution is very different from conflicts in, say, Syria or Lebanon, where sectarian strife is often the cause of ethnically fueled humanitarian catastrophes. This simply doesn't appear to have been the case in Ukraine. The people there were just tired of being ruled by a regime that used state funds to, among other things, build a floating restaurant on the grounds of the presidential palace.

To add fuel to the fire, moreover, ExxonMobil  (NYSE: XOM  ) recently discovered a massive natural gas field off neighboring Romania's shores. The find, according to that country's prime minister, may end up being so substantial that Romania could become a natural gas exporter by as early as 2018.
It's in this context, in turn, that the Russian invasion of Ukraine can arguably be best explained -- and particularly when you consider that Exxon was on the verge of signing an exploration agreement with the Ukrainian government until its now-former fuel and energy minister, Eduard Stavytsky, put the deal on hold in late January.
"We will sign it in February," Stavytsky told the media on Jan. 27. At the time, no reason was given for the delay. Perhaps now we know.

This link talks about 300 dollar per barrel oil coming.

Seems the link does not want to work:however here is the gist of it.

Fact: There Has Always Been, And Always Will Be Climate Change

The reality is simply this: The climate changes over time.

When Alexander the Great was conquering Persia, climate change was a big factor. And we all learned in high school that the “little ice age” that rocked Europe killed hundreds of thousands of people from the 1600s through the 1800s. Additionally, we know about the heat wave and drought that wiped out much of America during the 1930s. Thousands of people were dislocated in search of survival.

Were those events caused by man-made “global warming”?

Of course not.

And, the reality is, most scientists who advocate “global warming” today know mankind has nothing to do with climate change.

Remember: Temperatures have only risen .36 degrees since 1979 . . . and the bulk of that happened during the 1990s! We haven’t seen any warming for the last 17 years . . . in fact we have seen a drop in temperatures.
Anyway I guess you could cut and paste the link to get the article.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/05/11/bill-nye-gmos-changed-mind_n_7245092.html?ncid=txtlnkusaolp00000592  Says that Bill Nye the science guy now supports GMOs(frankenfood to some people).triffid


"GMOs are not inherently bad," he told host Josh Zepps. "We are able to feed 7.2 billion people, which a century and a half ago you could barely feed 1 and a half billion people and [it's] largely because of the success of modern farming."
  But Nye urged caution, particularly because introducing new organisms into the ecosystem can have "unintended consequences."
  My take on it now is genetically modified food is actually, in general, -- genetically modified plants, in general, -- are not only not harmful, they're actually a great benefit. However, you can't just go planting enormous monocultures and killing everything and expect the ecosystems to take it," he said.
