  • Ken Livingstone

    Livingstone has consistently rejected being defined under any particular ideological current of socialism. Recognising this, in 2000, the former Labour Party leader Neil Kinnock asserted that Livingstone could only be defined as a “Kennist”. Livingstone’s understanding of politics arises from his studies of animal behaviour and anthropology; rejecting the idea that the human species is…

  • Fluttuazioni

    We tend to think that the farther back we go in history, the dirtier and less hygienic people were, and so the higher the level of infectious disease. This is broadly true if we restrict ourselves to the last 1,000 years of Western civilization. However, if we consider the broader sweep of human history, the…

  • Moralità

    I said, “I can name for you something that is good, no matter what stories we tell ourselves.” “And it is…” I held up my glass. “Drinkable quantities of clean water.” “I don’t understand.” “Drinkable quantities of clean water are unqualifiedly a good thing, no matter the stories we tell ourselves.” She got it. She…

  • Derivati agricoli

    The notion of progress is a creation of agriculture. I can’t prove it, because the idea of progress is too deeply burned into us to be extracted and examined. It is our secular religion. […] The political system cannot be counted on to reform agriculture because the political system is a creation of agriculture, a…

  • L’equivoco

    The agricultural life, often referred to as “pastoral” or “rural”, seems a natural world to modern-day city dwellers and suburbanites. A weekend drive in the country is a time for relaxing and “going back to nature.” Yet farming is not na- ture, but rather the largest alteration of Earth’s surface from its natural state that…

  • Falsa competizione

    Rodney Heitschmidt and Jerry Stuth point out that “[h]umankind has historically fostered and relied upon livestock grazing for a substantial portion of its livelihood because it is the only process capable of converting the energy in grassland vegetation into  an energy source directly consumable by humans.” Nineteen billion metric tons of vegetation are produced by…

  • Una catastrofe annuale artificiale

    Agriculture is a recent human experiment. For most of human history, we lived by gathering or killing a broad variety of nature’s offerings. Why humans might have traded this approach for the complexities of agriculture is an interesting and long-debated question, especially because the skeletal evidence clearly indicates that early farmers were more poorly nourished,…

  • Odio per l’orticoltura

    Quando esponi nella principale mostra floreale del mondo, ci si attende che tu consideri il giardinaggio come uno dei più grandi piaceri della vita. I progettisti spendono anni a pianificare il loro giardino perfetto per il Chelsea Flower Show ed è tale la popolarità dell’evento che questo è uno dei rari anni in cui i…

  • C’mon, Mr. Shermer.

    Michael Shermer, giornalista e scrittore noto per aver fondato la Skeptic Society, cade abbastanza nel ridicolo in un suo editoriale di due settimane fa: Life has never been so good for our species – Los Angeles Times. It is fashionable among environmentalists today to paint a gloomy portrait of our future. Although there are many…
