Solar power will push out coal faster than you think
15 June 2017 - Solar power, once so costly it only made economic sense in spaceships, is becoming cheap enough that it will push coal and even natural-gas plants out of business faster than previously forecast. That's the conclusion of a Bloomberg New Energy Finance outlook for how fuel and electricity markets will evolve by 2040. The research group estimated solar already rivals the cost of new coal power plants in Germany and the U.S. and by 2021 will do so in quick-growing markets such as China and India. (more)

Tilos, Greece: the first island in the Mediterranean to run entirely on wind and solar power
15 June 2017 - Tiny Tilos, in the Dodecanese, is a pioneering nature reserve. Now, Greece's 'green island' is set to be powered by renewable energy. Tilos owes its extraordinary biodiversity to a network of underground springs that feed five wetlands -- but also to the late mayor, Tassos Aliferis, a committed environmentalist who earned Tilos its reputation as 'Greece's green island'. The current mayor, Maria Kamma, continues to champion sustainable development, and human rights. She has extended an open invitation to refugee families to settle on Tilos, working with the NGO SolidarityNow and the UNHCR to establish sheltered accommodation, language classes,and mentoring schemes to help asylum-seekers set up organic farming businesses in partnership with locals.

Although green bonds comprise a small fraction of the overall bond market, demand has grown significantly as investors seek lower-carbon investments. (more)

Global demand for coal falls in 2016 for second year in a row
13 June 2017 - Global demand for coal has fallen for the second consecutive year, according to a BP study, helped by the US and China burning less of the dirtiest fossil fuel. The UK was described as the 'most extreme example' of the trend away from coal, which has resulted in use of the fuel returning to levels not seen since the start of the industrial revolution. China's decreasing reliance on the fuel, large population, and enormous investment in renewables mean it is increasingly being seen as a global leader on climate change . . . (more)

Secrets to a longer, healthier life: How modern scientific discoveries and ancient holistic traditions can reverse ageing
16 May 2017 - Robert Schneider, MD, FACC, presents 'a new science of ageing that integrates the discoveries of modern science with those of an ancient health science - Maharishi AyurVeda, a holistic approach to ageing that enhances the mind and body from deep within, using the wisdom of the body's inner intelligence'. Dr Schneider is Dean of the College of Integrative Medicine and Director of the Institute for Natural Medicine and Prevention at Maharishi University of Management. His research has been supported by US$25 million in grants from the National Institutes of Health and other agencies. He cites many studies, including those demonstrating that 'older individuals who practise Transcendental Meditation show lower rates of mortality - they live significantly longer with better physical and mental health than control subjects who do not meditate. . . . Simply put, stress speeds ageing. And effective stress reduction slows it down.' (more)

Don Arney inducted into National Inventors Hall of Fame: TM allows me to mine the 'kernels of innovation'
13 May 2017 - One of 15 extraordinary innovators inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame (US) last week is Don Arney, inventor of the aerial fire-fighting 'Bambi Bucket', now used in over 110 countries. Suspended from a helicopter, the lightweight, collapsible bucket delivers huge quantities of water in a concentrated column. It was used to cool Japan's Fukushima nuclear site after the 2011 tsunami. Describing the creative process of this invention, Arney credited his long Transcendental Meditation practice, twice a day since 1970, which allows him to mine the 'nuggets of information' and 'kernels of innovation' that bubble up from deeper levels of the mind. In his NIHF acceptance speech in Washington, DC, he also paid tribute to his long-time business partner Mark McCooey, who transformed Arney's invention into an iconic product used around the world, saving forests, homes and lives.

7 March 2017 - Vincent Bataoel and his wife Nelina Loiselle have spent the last decade building Above Green, a successful consulting company which helps clients such as Bank of America, San Francisco Airport, and the US military get their buildings LEED Certified - a highly regarded green building certification programme used around the world. As an unfulfilled college student, Vincent's keen interest in quantum physics, neuroscience, and human potential eventually led him to the Maharishi University of Management website. 'Everything on the site was talking about health, human potential, and consciousness. I knew it was the place for me.' Vincent and Nelina continue to practise Transcendental Meditation, which they learned at MUM - a well-proven tool for increasing resilience. 'We meditate every day', says Vincent. 'It's an important part of our personal lifestyle, but also our business lifestyle. We've tried to infuse the principles of being stress free and relaxed into our company.' (more)

Let your love flow - Transcendental Meditation reduces stress, improves relationships
13 January 2017 - Like many women, Janet Hoffman finds relationships a vitally important area of life. 'My heart has to flow to someone. At any given moment - a child, a sister, a parent, the family pet - someone is the object of my adoration,' writes the executive director of the Transcendental Meditation programme for women professionals in the USA. 'Nourishing someone besides myself is a joy, a fulfilment of being.' In the past she sometimes experienced that channel of expression 'just dries up', like a writer with writer's block. But after learning Transcendental Meditation she found that 'stress and fatigue just melt away. . . . my mind becomes more silent and settled, so I can listen better and appreciate others more.'

Developing our mind's full potential
30 November 2016 - Janet Hoffmann, executive director of the Transcendental Meditation programme for women professionals in the USA, discusses developing our full mental potential through TM. Summarizing published, peer-reviewed research in this area, Ms Hoffman says, 'The TM technique . . . promotes brain wave coherence (more regions of the brain sync up and work together). Greater coherence leads to calmness, intelligence, focus, better decision making and problem solving . . . . The experience of transcending resets the brain's ground state, restoring neurological balance and clarity of mind.' (more)

Brain imaging parses Transcendental Meditation practice - Psych Central reports
7 November 2016 - New research, published in the journal Brain and Cognition, explains differences and dispels misconceptions regarding Transcendental Meditation and other meditation practices, Psych Central recently reported. The study found that during practice of Transcendental Meditation, activity in the 'default mode network' (a large-scale brain network involving areas in the front and back of the brain) was high, showing that the process did not involve effort or control of the mind. These findings underscoring the effortlessness of TM practice are in contrast with those on other meditation practices, which all show decreased activity in the default mode network - indicating that the mind is being focused, and not allowed to effortlessly transcend. 'It's a critical point,' said lead author Fred Travis, PhD, director of the Center for Brain, Consciousness, and Cognition at Maharishi University of Management. 'Researchers, commentators, and popular media often lump meditation practices together.' (more)

Research validates the defining hallmark of Transcendental Meditation -- effortlessness
4 November 2016 - As the value of meditation becomes widely recognized, researchers are increasingly trying to understand the differences among approaches. A study published 4 November in the journal Brain and Cognition reports subjective experiences and cortical activation patterns that distinguish the Transcendental Meditation technique from other meditation practices. 'Transcendental Meditation uses a mantra, and for this reason some researchers maintain that it involves focused attention and controlling the mind,' said lead author Fred Travis, Director of the Center for Brain, Consciousness and Cognition at Maharishi University of Management. 'Those who practice TM know this is not the case. This study supports their experience that Transcendental Meditation is easy to learn and effortless to practice.' (more)

A third of the world now faces deadly heatwaves as result of climate change
20 June 2017 - Nearly a third of the world's population is now exposed to climatic conditions that produce deadly heatwaves, as the accumulation of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere makes it 'almost inevitable' that vast areas of the planet will face rising fatalities from high temperatures, new research has found. Climate change has escalated the heatwave risk across the globe, the study states, with nearly half of the world's population set to suffer periods of deadly heat by the end of the century even if greenhouse gases are radically cut.

Study shows Earth's killer heat worsens
19 June 2017 - Killer heat is getting worse, a new study shows. A team of researchers examined 1,949 deadly heat waves from around the world since 1980 to look for trends, define when heat is so severe it kills, and forecast the future. They found that nearly one in three people now experience 20 days a year when the heat reaches deadly levels. But the study predicts that up to three in four people worldwide will endure that kind of heat by the end of the century, if global warming continues unabated. (more)

UK: Computing in schools -- alarm bells over England's classes
19 June 2017 - Computing education in England's schools is going through a revolution, but there is evidence that too few pupils want to be part of it. Figures from the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) show only a modest rise in students taking the new computer science GCSE. Experts are concerned. The British Computer Society warns the number studying for a computing qualification could halve by 2020. The organisation -- which is the professional body for the IT industry -- says that would be a disaster for the economy. The other big concern is that too few girls are taking up the computer science exam . . . (more)

Conservationists: Imperiled Atlantic salmon decline worsens
18 June 2017 - Fewer of North America's Atlantic salmon are making it back to rivers to spawn, which bodes poorly for the future of the imperiled fish, an international conservation group says. Atlantic salmon were once abundant in the rivers of New England and Atlantic Canada, but they are now endangered or have disappeared in parts of both areas. The salmon are born in rivers, swim to the Atlantic and return to their natal river to spawn. (more)

Insulating skin on high-rises has fueled fires before London
18 June 2017 - For the last decade, engineers specializing in fire safety have worried about the hidden danger posed by the kind of insulated metallic skin that transported flames up a high-rise apartment building in London, killing dozens. Panels of the armor-like 'cladding' have become a popular facade on tall buildings worldwide, both for their sleek look and energy-saving virtues. They also have helped fuel spectacular infernos in the Middle East, Europe, Asia, and the United States. (more)

APNewsBreak: Official says more Hanford nuke mishaps likely
15 June 2017 - Future accidental radiation releases at the largest U.S. site of waste from nuclear weapons production are likely following back-to-back emergency evacuations of workers in May and June because aging infrastructure is breaking down, the top Energy Department official at the site told The Associated Press. (more)

India's rising temperatures are already deadly, study shows
8 June 2017 - India is now two and a half times more likely to experience a deadly heat wave than a half century ago, and all it took was an increase in the average temperature of just 0.5 degrees Celsius (less than 1 degree Fahrenheit), a new study shows. The findings are sobering considering that the world is on track for far more warming. (more)

Trump pulling US from global climate pact, dismaying allies
1 June 2017 - President Donald Trump declared Thursday [1 June] he was withdrawing the U.S. from the landmark Paris climate agreement, striking a major blow to worldwide efforts to combat climate change and distancing the country from many allies abroad. He said the U.S. would try to re-enter but only if it can get more favorable terms. Several of his top aides have opposed the action, too, as has his daughter and adviser, Ivanka Trump. Scientists say Earth is likely to reach more dangerous levels of warming sooner as a result of the president's decision because America contributes so much to rising temperatures. Calculations suggest withdrawal could result in emissions of up to 3 billion tons of additional carbon dioxide in the air a year -- enough to melt ice sheets faster, raise seas higher, and trigger more extreme weather.

Australia's Great Barrier Reef suffers huge coral loss
30 May 2017 - Australia's Great Barrier Reef lost nearly a third of its corals in the past year, officials have said. Coral 'bleaching' has led to widespread coral decline and habitat loss on the world's largest coral reef system. Surveys show that 29 per cent of corals died in 2016, greater than the figure of 22 per cent projected in mid-2016. Bleaching occurs when the algae living on coral is expelled due to stress caused by extreme, sustained changes in temperature. This turns the coral white. Researchers say that climate change is a significant driver behind the coral loss and experts have said the window is closing fast to cut the greenhouse gas emissions pushing up temperatures and harming the reef.

'My worst nightmares are coming true': last major primeval forest in Europe on 'brink of collapse'
23 May 2017 - Polish government is accused of pushing Białowieża forest ecosystem to point of no return with state-sanctioned logging in UNESCO world heritage site. Scientists and environmental campaigners have accused the Polish government of bringing the ecosystem of the Białowieża forest in north-eastern Poland to the 'brink of collapse', one year after a revised forest management plan permitted the trebling of state logging activity and removed a ban on logging in old growth areas.
