Labor force dropout rate hits record high

September 29 2015

by: Ben Bullard




The Bureau of Labor Statistics’ June jobs report reveals a historically low level of participation in the U.S. labor force, with a smaller percentage of Americans seeking work than at any time since 1977. BLS numbers show that 93,626,000 people had dropped out of the labor force in June, with 157,037,000 participating. That yields a participation rate of 62.6 percent — the lowest it’s been since October 1977, when the rate hit 62.4 percent.

Dahr Jamail | Species Extinctions, Human Chronic Disease on the Rise, as Climate Disruption Mounts

September 29 2015

I'm graced to live adjacent to Olympic National Park and have it as my backyard sanctuary. Recently, I hiked up to an alpine lake at 5,000 feet, where my friend John and I pitched camp and settled in to climb a nearby peak. The clear, rarified air wafting through sub-alpine fir expands the soul, not to mention the power of the incredible mountain views. But the trip, fantastic weather and summit aside, had a bittersweet edge to it.

GMO Contamination Denial: Controlling Science

September 29 2015

by: By Don Fitz, Truthout




Did you ever think that investigation of the potential dangers of putting GMOs (genetically modified organisms) into food would be based on objective research? Or that unbiased reviews of research by academic journals would chart a steady march toward scientific truth? If so, you would be very wrong. Through all of its phases, scientific research is subject to repression, manipulation and more insidious forms of control that push it toward a profit-based consensus.

Mass Extinction: It's the End of the World as We Know It

July 7 2015

by: Dahr Jamail, Truthout | Interview





Guy McPherson is a professor emeritus of evolutionary biology, natural resources and ecology at the University of Arizona, and has been a climate change expert for 30 years. He has also become a controversial figure, due to the fact that he does not shy away from talking about the possibility of near-term human extinction.

While McPherson's perspective might sound like the stuff of science fiction, there is historical precedent for his predictions. Fifty-five million years ago, a 5-degree Celsius rise in average global temperatures seems to have occurred in just 13 years, according to a study published in the October 2013 issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. A report in the August 2013 issue of Science revealed that in the near term, earth's climate will change 10 times faster than during any other moment in the last 65 million years.

Hottest Year Ever

July 6 2015

by: By Bruce Melton, Truthout


            
 

 

The last time we had this discussion was 2013, remember? Before that it was 2010. Before that it was 2005, and everything started with the Super El Nino in 1998. Statistically, saying that 2014 was the hottest year ever is a very valid thing, and if you understand statistics, I am envious of you.
