Tetrapodophis amplectus is not a snake: re-assessment of the osteology, phylogeny and functional morphology of an Early Cretaceous dolichosaurid lizard. Journal of Systematic Palaeontology, 2021; 1 DOI: 10.1080/14772019.2021.1983044

“It has long been understood that snakes are members of a lineage of four-legged vertebrates that, as a result of evolutionary specializations, lost their limbs,” said Caldwell, lead author of the study and professor in the departments of biological sciences and earth and atmospheric sciences.

“Somewhere in the fossil record of ancient snakes is an ancestral form that still had four legs. It has thus long been predicted that a snake with four legs would be found as a fossil.”

Missing link discovered?

In a paper published in the journal Sciencein 2015, a team of researchers reported the discovery of what was believed to be an example of the first known four-legged snake fossil, an animal they named Tetrapodophis amplectus.

“If correctly interpreted based on the preserved anatomy, this would be a very important discovery,” said Caldwell.

Caldwell explained that the new study of Tetrapodophis revealed a number of mischaracterizations of the anatomy and morphology of the specimen — traits that initially seemed to be shared most closely with snakes, suggesting this might be the long-sought-after snake with four legs.

“There are many evolutionary questions that could be answered by finding a four-legged snake fossil, but only if it is the real deal. The major conclusion of our team is that Tetrapodophis amplectus is not in fact a snake and was misclassified,” said Caldwell. “Rather, all aspects of its anatomy are consistent with the anatomy observed in a group of extinct marine lizards from the Cretaceous period known as dolichosaurs.”

The clues to this conclusion, Caldwell noted, were hiding in the rock the fossil was extracted from.

“When the rock containing the specimen was split and it was discovered, the skeleton and skull ended up on opposite sides of the slab, with a natural mould preserving the shape of each on the opposite side,” said Caldwell. “The original study only described the skull and overlooked the natural mould, which preserved several features that make it clear that Tetrapodophis did not have the skull of a snake — not even of a primitive one.”

A controversial specimen

Although Tetrapodophis may not be the snake with four legs that paleontologists prize, it still has much to teach us, said study coauthor Tiago Simões, a former U of A PhD student, Harvard post- doctoral fellow and Brazilian paleontologist, who pointed out some of the features that make it unique.

“One of the greatest challenges of studying Tetrapodophis is that it is one of the smallest fossil squamates ever found,” said Simões. “It is comparable to the smallest squamates alive today that also have reduced limbs.”

An additional challenge to studying the Tetrapodophis is access to the specimen itself.

“There were no appropriate permits for the specimen’s original removal from Brazil and, since its original publication, it has been housed in a private collection with limited access to researchers. The situation was met with a large backlash from the scientific community,” said Simões.

“In our redescription of Tetrapodophis, we lay out the important legal status of the specimen and emphasize the necessity of its repatriation to Brazil, in accordance not only with Brazilian legislation but also international treaties and the increasing international effort to reduce the impact of colonialist practices in science.”

  1. Brian Saccardi, Matthew Winnick. Improving Predictions of Stream CO 2 Concentrations and Fluxes using a Stream Network Model: a Case Study in the East River Watershed, CO, USA. Global Biogeochemical Cycles, 2021; DOI: 10.1029/2021GB006972

Scientists refer to the total CO2 circulating through the earth and the atmosphere as the carbon budget. This budget includes both anthropogenic sources of CO2, such as those that come from burning fossil fuels, as well as more natural sources of CO2 that are part of the planet’s regular carbon cycle. “In the era of global climate change,” says Brian Saccardi, graduate student in geosciences at UMass Amherst and lead author of the new research, “we need to know what the baseline levels of CO2 are, where they come from and how those physical process of carbon emission work.” Without such a baseline, it makes it difficult to know how the earth is changing as CO2 levels increase.

Streams and rivers are one of the many venues that naturally emit CO2 — scientists have long known this, but it’s been a very difficult number to pin down. In part, this is because CO2 emissions fluctuate rapidly and it has proved impracticable to physically monitor all of the earth’s river networks. And so scientists typically rely on statistical models to estimate how much CO2 streams and rivers emit. The problem, Saccardi explains, is that the models don’t account for the full complexity of how CO2 moves from groundwater into the stream or river, what happens to it once there and how much gets emitted to the atmosphere.

“This is the first time we’re accounting for the physical processes themselves,” says Matthew Winnick, professor of geosciences at UMass Amherst and the paper’s co-author. “We need to know how each step of the movement of CO2 works, so we know how they will react to climate change.”

Saccardi and Winnick designed, tested and validated a “process-based” model that relies on the laws of physics as well as empirical measurements to arrive at its estimates. The pair took 121 measurements of streams in the remote East River watershed in Colorado, against which they could test their new model. And the results were clear: according to the research, their model is far more accurate than the standard approaches.

Though Saccardi and Winnick are quick to point out that their conclusions apply to the East River watershed only, they have future plans to apply their process-based model more widely and suspect that their new method may help to radically reevaluate the earth’s natural carbon budget.

Even after getting no confirmation on the hot topic of Selena Gomez and Chris Evans dating, rumors still continue to hold a firm ground about the two being together and apparently dating. Adding to the long list of rumors that have not stopped since the marvel fame started following Selena is that Chris hates Cara delevingne and wants her to leave Selena alone. As amusing as it sounds, is there any proof of truth in this rumor or is it just another speculation? And why Cara Delevingne in particular? Let’s explore the reason for this speculation and why all of them are linked in the first place.

Selena and Chris – everything we know!

Well, the SUDDEN rumors of the only murders in the building fame Selena and the Marvel fame Evans dating began when the actor started following her on Instagram. This sudden follow generated these rumors and with the piling up of various incidents just ignited the rumors and gave rise to various speculations. What Incidents?

INCIDENTS

After the rumors hit the market, 4 photographs got viral which showed the two leaving out same studio and restaurant on the same day. As believing as it was, Elle researched and found the photographs belonged to a completely different timeline and were actually months and years apart. Hardly had the rumors shunned down, when suddenly another video got viral where Selena was seen promoting her friend Taylor Swift on TikTok. The reason that this video went viral was that the singer was spotted wearing an oversized white sweater that resembled the one that Chris wore in the knives out. However, the two sweaters were not identical.

Another incident that added up to this flame was a video where Chris was spotted playing piano and the fans saw a reflection on the video which they think was of Selena with her recent bob cut. Also, Selena even said that she found the actor cute in an interview with andy cohen back in 2015. However, neither of the stars stepped up to give any sort of confirmation. But why has Cara been linked to the rumored couple?

WHY IS CARA LINKED WITH THE RUMORS?

Cara Delevingne and Selena Gomez who have been close acquaintances for a very long time were spotted at a Knicks game on 17 November in New york city. The playoff was held at madison square garden between Orlando Magic and the knicks. While the singer donned a turtleneck sweater and a trench coat paired up with knee-length boots, Cara was spotted keeping it simple yet classy with a casual black outfit and completed the overalls with white sneakers and gold accessories. That’s not all. Cara and Selena were captured sharing a cute moment where Selena initiated a kiss on the model’s cheek. This was captured by the jumbotron in the kiss cam moment. Cara who earlier dated Ashley Benson is currently single after they broke back in 2020.

FACT!

As for Selena, she stated in a recent interview that she is happy that she is currently single and not involved with anyone. Captain America fame, however, was in the limelight earlier for being in a relationship but currently, he is not linked to anyone and has also cleared that he does not want to date any A-listed stars. So until any confirmation comes out, speculation of any kind just stays rumors and ceases to be true.

When Hotel Xcaret Mexico originally opened in Riviera Maya, it was a new and exciting property for avid travelers to explore. The resort stood apart from others in the area, offering local cuisine, authentic experiences, intricate decor and an All Fun Inclusive concept that wasn’t ever seen before.

Fast forward to July of 2021, and Hotel Xcaret Arte has now opened its doors, welcoming visitors in for yet another new experience in this sought-after area.

ADVERTISING

Some travelers may be wondering what this new property is all about and if it’s different from Hotel Xcaret Mexico. While the properties’ layouts and décor may look similar, there are a few major differentiators between the two.

While Hotel Xcaret Mexico caters to guests of all ages, visitors to Hotel Xcaret Arte must be at least 16 years of age, giving it more of an adults-only atmosphere.

In addition, Hotel Xcaret Mexico’s single rooftop area was such a hit, that Hotel Xcaret Arte offers four rooftop areas to enjoy. Though they all offer incredible views, the rooftop pool and bar area on top of Casa de los Artistas is a crowd favorite. Located closest to the ocean with views of both the Caribbean Sea and the sprawling property, the exclusive spot boasts some of the most Instagram-worthy photo opportunities.

According to Sakari Malinen, Director of Sales, Hoteles Xcaret, an ideal traveler for a visit to Hotel Xcaret Arte is “somebody who, on top of sun and beach and fun, also enjoys culinary experiences and is also interested in being part of making art.” Because on top of having an adults-only focus and additional rooftop oases, the resort also offers a variety of creative workshops.

The hotel is divided into five houses, or casas, and each one has its own themed workshop. For example, located in Casa de la Música is a dance workshop and in Casa del Diseño is a weaving workshop. Other options include painting, pottery and literature. During a visit to Hotel Xcaret Arte, there is no need to go shopping for souvenirs, as guests have the option to create them while learning something new, which can be even more meaningful.

In addition to unleashing their creative side throughout the visit, guests can also utilize watersports such as kayaks and paddleboards right on property. There are plenty of activities throughout the day to keep guests entertained.

Malinen explained that this is the very reason it has drawn in several multigenerational groups: “Everybody has something interesting to do because there is such a variety of different activities, like more extreme watersports or more casual snorkeling perhaps, all kinds of things.”

Another aspect of the resort that travelers may not find elsewhere is the in-depth culinary offerings. From mobile food carts serving fresh Elote poolside to the fine dining restaurants offering gourmet menu items, guests are taken on a unique journey with each and every bite.

“We have created this culinary team of top Mexican celebrity chefs. We also have this variety of different cuisine from different areas of Mexico,” Malinen explained, adding that Hotel Xcaret Arte is one of the first all-inclusive resorts to include a restaurant run by a Michelin star chef without charging an extra cost.

Among these elegant restaurant options are Kibi-Kibi, serving favorites from Yucatan and Lebanon; Xaak, honoring the destination’s ancestors by showcasing pre-Hispanic food; and Encanta, which features modern Mexican cuisine.

Those finished with their evening dining journey and not quite ready to retreat to the room can opt to visit the speakeasy for live music and delicious drinks—that is, if they can find it.

What ties everything together and makes Hotel Xcaret Arte stand apart from others of its kind is the All Fun Inclusive concept. It actually begins at the airport, as the hotel includes round-trip airport transportation in its own buses. Also included are both transportation and admission to all the Grupo Xcaret parks and tours in the area. This means adventures such as zip lining, driving amphibious vehicles through the forest, snorkeling, discovering cenotes and touring Mayan ruins are all included during the stay, truly taking “all-inclusive” to another level.

When guests need a break from the never-ending fun, they can retreat to the Muluk Spa, which offers eco-integrator hydrotherapy rituals, private treatment rooms in natural caves, an Alchemist Room and more. It’s a place where visitors can take their time and discover the true meaning of relaxation.

“Our owner’s philosophy has always been that he understands that not everybody can go to all the corners of the country and all the amazing villages, so he wants to bring the best of Mexico to one single place where you can see it all,” Malinen said.

If a one-stop-shop to a glimpse of what all Mexico has to offer sounds appealing, contact a travel advisor or visit www.hotelxcaretarte.com to learn more and get a future vacation on the books.

Fast forward to July of 2021, and Hotel Xcaret Arte has now opened its doors, welcoming visitors in for yet another new experience in this sought-after area.

Some travelers may be wondering what this new property is all about and if it’s different from Hotel Xcaret Mexico. While the properties’ layouts and décor may look similar, there are a few major differentiators between the two.

While Hotel Xcaret Mexico caters to guests of all ages, visitors to Hotel Xcaret Arte must be at least 16 years of age, giving it more of an adults-only atmosphere.

In addition, Hotel Xcaret Mexico’s single rooftop area was such a hit, that Hotel Xcaret Arte offers four rooftop areas to enjoy. Though they all offer incredible views, the rooftop pool and bar area on top of Casa de los Artistas is a crowd favorite. Located closest to the ocean with views of both the Caribbean Sea and the sprawling property, the exclusive spot boasts some of the most Instagram-worthy photo opportunities.

According to Sakari Malinen, Director of Sales, Hoteles Xcaret, an ideal traveler for a visit to Hotel Xcaret Arte is “somebody who, on top of sun and beach and fun, also enjoys culinary experiences and is also interested in being part of making art.” Because on top of having an adults-only focus and additional rooftop oases, the resort also offers a variety of creative workshops.

The hotel is divided into five houses, or casas, and each one has its own themed workshop. For example, located in Casa de la Música is a dance workshop and in Casa del Diseño is a weaving workshop. Other options include painting, pottery and literature. During a visit to Hotel Xcaret Arte, there is no need to go shopping for souvenirs, as guests have the option to create them while learning something new, which can be even more meaningful.

In addition to unleashing their creative side throughout the visit, guests can also utilize watersports such as kayaks and paddleboards right on property. There are plenty of activities throughout the day to keep guests entertained.

Malinen explained that this is the very reason it has drawn in several multigenerational groups: “Everybody has something interesting to do because there is such a variety of different activities, like more extreme watersports or more casual snorkeling perhaps, all kinds of things.”

Another aspect of the resort that travelers may not find elsewhere is the in-depth culinary offerings. From mobile food carts serving fresh Elote poolside to the fine dining restaurants offering gourmet menu items, guests are taken on a unique journey with each and every bite.

“We have created this culinary team of top Mexican celebrity chefs. We also have this variety of different cuisine from different areas of Mexico,” Malinen explained, adding that Hotel Xcaret Arte is one of the first all-inclusive resorts to include a restaurant run by a Michelin star chef without charging an extra cost.

Among these elegant restaurant options are Kibi-Kibi, serving favorites from Yucatan and Lebanon; Xaak, honoring the destination’s ancestors by showcasing pre-Hispanic food; and Encanta, which features modern Mexican cuisine.

Those finished with their evening dining journey and not quite ready to retreat to the room can opt to visit the speakeasy for live music and delicious drinks—that is, if they can find it.

What ties everything together and makes Hotel Xcaret Arte stand apart from others of its kind is the All Fun Inclusive concept. It actually begins at the airport, as the hotel includes round-trip airport transportation in its own buses. Also included are both transportation and admission to all the Grupo Xcaret parks and tours in the area. This means adventures such as zip lining, driving amphibious vehicles through the forest, snorkeling, discovering cenotes and touring Mayan ruins are all included during the stay, truly taking “all-inclusive” to another level.

When guests need a break from the never-ending fun, they can retreat to the Muluk Spa, which offers eco-integrator hydrotherapy rituals, private treatment rooms in natural caves, an Alchemist Room and more. It’s a place where visitors can take their time and discover the true meaning of relaxation.

“Our owner’s philosophy has always been that he understands that not everybody can go to all the corners of the country and all the amazing villages, so he wants to bring the best of Mexico to one single place where you can see it all,” Malinen said.

If a one-stop-shop to a glimpse of what all Mexico has to offer sounds appealing, contact a travel advisor or visit www.hotelxcaretarte.com to learn more and get a future vacation on the books.

Germany currently registers the rate of 69.4% of its population vaccinated, but in the view of its rulers, a number far from providing security to its citizens. So much so that, to the dismay of entertainment industry professionals, he again decreed the closing of nightclubs to hold back the advance of the Omicron virus variant.

Despite having one of the highest rates of inhabitants declared to be “anti-vaccine”, the percentage of those vaccinated is still higher than that of Brazil, which accounts for 64% of its population. The state of São Paulo is about to hit the mark of 80% of its inhabitants completely immunized.

The reopening of clubs and festivals occurred gradually and was practically released in Europe until the news of a new variant of Covid-19, Omicron, with lower lethality but high contagion capacity. The monitoring of the cases made several countries decide to take some steps back in the release. In Brazil, the yellow light is on, following news from abroad. The city of São Paulo has just announced the cancellation of New Year’s Eve events this year.

See how the situation is in some European countries:

France

Clubs are closed between the 3rd and 10th of December. The country registered 51,000 new cases of Covid-19 in the last week.

Ireland

Full closing of clubs from December 7th to January 9th. Full reopening was authorized as recently as October.

Germany

Regulations in Germany vary from state to state. As a general rule, clubs must be closed in any city that has an infection rate greater than 350 cases per 100,000 population. Berlin currently counts 361.

Belgium

All clubs were closed on November 27, a week after the government identified a significant increase in the number of new cases. There was an attempt by the government to tighten security rules, requiring masks inside all venues and testing for all nightclub patrons, but it proved impossible to put into practice.

Holland

After six weeks of relief, the events were again banned indefinitely. Clubs remain closed.

Portugal

The country has the highest vaccination rate in Europe, with 90% immunized, and the lowest number of cases of contamination (no coincidence in this statistic). Therefore, the clubs remain open with authorization to operate until midnight. All customers, however, are required to submit a recent contamination test even if they are fully vaccinated.

Czech republic

The government declared a state of emergency in the country after a record increase in the number of new cases, which means that all public places must be closed by 10:00 pm

Austria

The government decreed a lockdown between the 22nd of November and the 11th of December. All non-essential businesses are closed.

Denmark

Clubs remain open and clients are admitted presenting a vaccination passport. The rules are valid until mid-December.

United Kingdom

Nightclubs are still open, with no change in the reopening program so far. The British government’s care focuses on whoever enters the country.

Tot slot van onze serie van 7 artikelen over Groene Circulaire Meststoffen (GCMs) lanceren we de stelling dat de nadruk in het denken over de rol van GCMs in de landbouw wijst op symptoombestrijding. Veel belangrijker vinden we de rol van circulariteit, dat wil zeggen van het herwinnen van voedingsstoffen, en van het vastleggen van koolstof in gewas en bodem. CMs, circulaire meststoffen, zijn van cruciaal belang.

Denk aan de wereldwijde aandacht voor de beheersing van klimaatverandering. De belangrijkste opgave is het vastleggen in plaats van uitstoten van CO2. In de voorbereidingen van de Parijse klimaatconferentie lanceerde Frankrijk daarom zijn 4 pour 1000 (4 voor 1000), een voorstel dat de rol van de landbouw definieerde. Het land zag in dat de landbouw zou kunnen bijdragen aan de inspanningen om de wereldtemperatuur niet (veel) verder te laten stijgen. Landbouw kan de door de mensheid uitgestoten CO2 terughalen naar de bodem door verhoging van het gehalte aan bodem organische stof wereldwijd in de bovenste 30 à 40 cm van landbouwgrond. De Franse onderzoeksinstituten die het plan opstelden, suggereerden dat een toename van 4‰ organische koolstof per jaar haalbaar zou moeten zijn.

Zonder kunstmest sluiten we Afrikaanse boeren uit van hun potentieel om bij te dragen aan het afremmen van klimaatverandering

Positief effect veel groter dan het negatieve
Paul Poulton en zijn collega’s identificeerden de moeilijkheden voor boeren om de grond met deze snelheid te verrijken via een analyse van alle meerjarige proefvelden in het bekende Rothamsted waar naar de verhoging van het bodem organische stof gehalte was gekeken. Het betrof 114 behandelingen die 7 tot 157 jaar geduurd hadden. Poulton et al. constateert onder meer dat voor regio’s in de wereld waar momenteel nog geen of nauwelijks kunstmest wordt gebruikt, de resultaten van het Rothamsted onderzoek een “praktische aanleiding zijn om [daar, red.] de bodem organische koolstof te verhogen en tegelijk de gewasopbrengsten te verbeteren”. Ze benadrukken dat met name in Afrika boeren onvoldoende mest en gewasbijproducten tot hun beschikking hebben om te kunnen werken aan de opslag van koolstof in landbouwgronden. Zonder kunstmest sluiten we hen uit van hun potentieel om bij te dragen aan het afremmen van klimaatverandering.

In dat licht is gebruik van kunstmest een conditio sine qua non, het draagt weliswaar bij aan klimaatopwarming maar helpt tevens die te beperken. Het positieve effect is vele malen groter dan het negatieve. Daarbij komt dat het ook nog eens efficiënter is omdat kunstmest door specifieke weldoordachte samenstellingen veel gerichter kan worden toegepast, zonder dat bepaalde nutriënten – zoals het schaarse fosfor – worden overgedoseerd.

Zou het niet zinniger zijn prioriteiten te bepalen vast te stellen en te bepalen wie en welke sector van activiteiten recht heeft op welk aandeel in de schaarse hernieuwbare energiebronnen?

Gebalanceerd kunstmestgebruik gecombineerd met toediening van stro of mest kan het koolstofgehalte in de bovengrond met 2 tot 3,5% doen stijgen.
Dit alles betekent dat naast natuurlijke ecosystemen landbouwgrond een goed bruikbare Carbon-sink is als kunstmest wordt gebruikt.

De CO2-voetafdruk van mensen in de armste landen is gemiddeld ongeveer 1,5 t/pers./jaar. De productiviteit van de landbouw, uitgedrukt in graanequivalenten, ligt er tussen de 500 en 2.000 kg/ha. Met de stijging van het gebruik van kunstmest en de inherente groei van de productiviteit van de landbouw neemt die voetdruk toe. Bij een landbouw- productiviteit van 4.000 kg/ha bereikt die al tussen de 4 en 5 t/pers./jaar. Bij 8.000 kg/ha graanequivalenten bedraagt de uitstoot van broeikasgassen in CO2 equivalenten ongeveer 12 tot 13 t/pers./jaar. Deze cijfers geven gemiddelden aan en betreffen het effect van de sociaaleconomische ontwikkeling in zijn geheel.

Bereken je de bijdrage van de productie voor de benodigde kunstmest aan de uitstoot van CO2-equivalenten voor een maatschappij met een landbouwproductiviteit van 8.000 kg/ha graanequivalenten, dan blijf je onder de 0,5%. Volgens de CBS-statistieken werd in Nederland in 2020 32% van de totale hoeveelheid broeikasgassen door de industrie uitgestoten, 20% door de sector elektriciteit, 19% door de sector mobiliteit (binnenlands verkeer en vervoer), 16% door de landbouw en 13% door de gebouwde omgeving (het resultaat van het verwarmen van huizen en andere gebouwen).

Uiteraard moet elke sector bijdragen aan vermindering van de uitstoot van broeikasgassen. Maar het aandeel kunstmest blijkt zo gering, dat versobering van het gebruik daarvan weinig zal uithalen.
Zou het niet zinniger zijn prioriteiten te bepalen vast te stellen en te bepalen wie en welke sector van activiteiten recht heeft op welk aandeel in de schaarse hernieuwbare energiebronnen?

Bij de productie van de gemiddeld per Nederlander gebruikte kunstmest in onze landbouw wordt per jaar ongeveer 35 kg CO2-equivalenten aan broeikasgas uitgestoten. Om dat getal in perspectief te zetten: iemand die jaarrond op een elektrische fiets naar school of naar het werk gaat stoot al snel drie keer zo veel uit.

Voorwaarden voor een duurzaam voedselsysteem
Veel van de zojuist genoemde kennis en feiten werden gebruikt door Olivier Honnay, hoogleraar in Leuven, om een wereldvoedselsysteem te schetsen dat voedselzekerheid kan bieden. Het moest een bevolking van 10 miljard mensen kunnen voeden en klimaatverandering onder controle houden. Honnay werd geïnspireerd door een publicatie van het World Resources Institute en beschreef zijn oplossingen in Uitdagingen voor het verduurzamen van het mondiale voedselsysteem.
Gezien de grote energie-voet waarop ons leven is gebaseerd, ontkomen we niet aan versobering op alle fronten. Binnen het voedselsysteem betekent dit dat voedselverspilling moet worden teruggedrongen. Dat geldt ook voor de productie van dierlijke eiwitten. Honnay gaat uit van een vermindering van de huidige mondiale veestapel met 30%.

Het gebruik van kunstmest is voor Honnay een belangrijke voorwaarde; kunstmestgebruik voor productieve landbouw op de beste gronden in de diverse regio’s van de wereld. In sommige delen van de wereld zullen de beste gronden minder goed zijn dan in andere. Dat zullen we moeten accepteren om de mondiaal gezien beste gronden, de mindere elders in de wereld niet uit te laten boeren. Dat is nodig om de nog altijd groeiende wereldbevolking te kunnen voeden en ruimte te creëren en te houden voor natuurlijke ecosystemen en hun biodiversiteit. Een groter areaal aan goed beschermde natuurlijke ecosystemen en akkers en weiden met een grotere opslag van koolstof in levende en dode organische stof, maken het mogelijk de temperatuurstijging onder de 2 graden Celsius te houden.

Met alleen technologische oplossingen zal de bestaande samenleving het energiegebruik niet terugdringen. Daarvoor zijn meer gelijkheid, democratie, goede diensten en nieuwe infrastructuur nodig

In plaats van kunstmest uit te bannen, is het veel effectiever om lokale overdosering van kunstmest in de rijke wereld te voorkomen. Tevens moet het gesleep met voeders en voedsel zo veel mogelijk stoppen. Daarom moet op de meest geschikte gronden in alle wereldregio’s de landbouwproductiviteit naar een soort van wereldgemiddelde van minstens 4.000 kg/ha aan graanequivalenten. Met die paar eenvoudig te bedenken – maar niet gemakkelijk uit te voeren – aanpassingen van het mondiale voedselsysteem verandert de focus van maximalisatie van de productie op bepaalde plekken, naar gespreide optimalisatie voor klimaat en biodiversiteit bij voldoende voedselzekerheid. In arme landen in Afrika en elders moet landbouwontwikkeling leiden tot sociaaleconomische ontwikkeling, waardoor het haalbaar wordt dat de wereldbevolking niet verder zal groeien dan tot 10 miljard mensen. Onder dergelijke voorwaarden kunnen 10 miljard mensen in goede welstand leven, denkt Honnay, en kan de temperatuurstijging beperkt blijven tot 2oC zal stijgen. Zonder kunstmest zal dat echter niet lukken.

Honnay staat niet alleen in zijn overtuiging dat het nog mogelijk is een duurzame economie op te zetten. Naast het World Resources Institute dat hem inspireerde, wijst de Zwitserse ecologie-econoom Julia Steinberger op het belang van een nieuwe maatschappijstructuur. Met alleen technologische oplossingen zal de bestaande samenleving het energiegebruik niet terugdringen. Daarvoor zijn meer gelijkheid, democratie, goede diensten en nieuwe infrastructuur nodig, denkt Steinberger en Honnay met haar.

Zeven aandachtspunten
Het Realisatieplan Visie LNV: op weg met nieuw perspectief is een stapje naar meer circulaire landbouw. Maar wil het zoden aan de dijk zetten dan zal er echt meer van de suggesties van het WRI en mensen als Honnay en Steinberger in te vinden moeten zijn. Tot slot formuleren we een aantal aandachtspunten die uit onze serie artikelen over GCM’s kunnen worden gedestilleerd:

CMs, circulaire meststoffen, hebben meer kans om een nuttige rol te gaan spelen dan GMs, de groene meststoffen die geproduceerd met alternatieve energie

1. Broeikasgassen en klimaat, voedselzekerheid en biodiversiteit kennen geen landsgrenzen. Oplossingen op nationaal niveau zijn schijnoplossingen, zolang de invloed ervan elders niet neutraal of positief is. Internationale politiek is naast nationale politiek onmisbaar.
2. Er zijn nog geen GCMs gevonden die het hart sneller doen kloppen. Zo zuinig mogelijk omgaan met de huidige meststoffen blijft de beste aanbeveling; voorkomen is beter dan genezen.
3. Pas op voor het zoeken en ontwikkelen van GCMs als window dressing. De uitstoot van broeikasgassen bij de productie van kunstmest is een minieme fractie van onze totale uitstoot en levert een veel grotere vastlegging van koolstof op. Sterke versobering van onze manier van leven is vele malen effectiever dan gebruik van GCMs. CMs, circulaire meststoffen, hebben meer kans om een nuttige rol te gaan spelen dan GMs, de groene meststoffen die geproduceerd met alternatieve energie.
4. Bij het zoeken naar en het ontwikkelen van GCMs moeten stikstof en koolstof zeker zoveel aandacht krijgen als momenteel de minerale voedingsstoffen.
5.Om een kans te maken op succes moet de wereldvoedselvoorziening meer gebaseerd zijn op regionale productie. Gesleep met voedsel en veevoeder tussen continenten zou niet langer gesubsidieerd moeten worden door brandstoffen voor groot internationaal transport niet of slechts laag te belasten. Inspanningen om kunstmest beschikbaar en toegankelijk te maken in arme landen met beperkte landbouwontwikkeling en om boeren te interesseren voor het gebruik ervan, zijn een effectieve bijdrage in de strijd tegen klimaatverandering.
6. Voorlopig heeft het terugdringen van verliezen van voedingsstoffen, hun terugwinning en het vastleggen van koolstof veel meer prioriteit dan het zoeken naar mogelijkheden om kunstmest groen te produceren via alternatieve energiebronnen.
7. De bestaande rijke wereld zal inclusiever moeten worden door natuurlijke hulpbronnen te delen met mensen elders in de wereld. Dat vergt versobering en dus de ontwikkeling van nieuwe gewoontes, en is de sociale voorwaarde om verduurzaming en circulariteit resultaat te laten opleveren.

Woensdag 3 november verscheen deel 2: Van stedelijke beerput naar kunstmest en weer terug. Zaterdag 6 november verscheen deel 3: Te duur?. Woensdag 10 november verscheen deel 4: De voor- en nadelen van Groene Circulaire Meststoffen. Zaterdag 13 november verscheen deel 5: Verlaten van lineaire landbouw heeft grote consequenties voor onze manier van leven. Zondag 20 november verscheen deel 6: Landbouw en ongelijkheid.

Deze serie wordt, zonder enige redactionele invloed, mogelijk gemaakt door boerencoöperatie Agrifirm. Boeren hebben behoefte aan perspectief en willen graag een duidelijk beeld van de meststoffen die ze de komende 30 jaar mogen gebruiken. Dat beeld is er op dit moment nog niet en kan daarom in de openheid van een niet-ideologisch en zo feitelijk mogelijk gesprek ontwikkeld worden. Een en ander als voorbereiding op (politieke) meningsvorming en normstellingen.

Het Planbureau voor de Leefomgeving adviseert de overheid te komen met dwingende normen voor circulariteit, met name op het gebied van landbouw. Eén van de belangrijkste circulaire schakels in de landbouw is die van mest. Dieren (mensen incluis) eten planten of elkaar en produceren mest die voedsel is voor nieuw leven. Werkt die natuurlijke circulariteit ook in het landbouwsysteem, dat wil zeggen in de natuur die we hebben ingericht om de wensen van naar welvaart strevende mensen optimaal te bedienen? We willen genoeg te eten hebben en daar niet al te veel voor betalen. Tevens willen we de biodiversiteit versterken. Met kunstmest kan dat, een strategie waar de VS op in lijken te zetten. Europese overheden willen er vanaf omdat het maken van kunstmest veel fossiele energie kost en bij te royale toepassing de bodem uitboert. Op dit moment ligt de kunstmestfabriek van Yara in Sluiskil stil omdat de aardgasprijzen te hoog zijn om tegen acceptabele prijzen kunstmest te produceren. Met de Green Deal en de Farm2Fork-strategie heeft de EU heeft besloten voor 25% fossielvrije landbouw te gaan.
Een nieuw tijdperk kondigt zich aan. Den Haag en Brussel stellen de voedselketen voor een nieuwe uitdaging, met nieuwe normen waaraan de landbouw moet voldoen.

Bij 8.000 kg/ha graanequivalenten bedraagt de uitstoot van broeikasgassen in CO2 equivalenten ongeveer 12 tot 13 t/pers./jaar. Deze cijfers geven gemiddelden aan en betreffen het effect van de sociaaleconomische ontwikkeling in zijn geheel.

Bereken je de bijdrage van de productie voor de benodigde kunstmest aan de uitstoot van CO2-equivalenten voor een maatschappij met een landbouwproductiviteit van 8.000 kg/ha graanequivalenten, dan blijf je onder de 0,5%. Volgens de CBS-statistieken werd in Nederland in 2020 32% van de totale hoeveelheid broeikasgassen door de industrie uitgestoten, 20% door de sector elektriciteit, 19% door de sector mobiliteit (binnenlands verkeer en vervoer), 16% door de landbouw en 13% door de gebouwde omgeving (het resultaat van het verwarmen van huizen en andere gebouwen).

Uiteraard moet elke sector bijdragen aan vermindering van de uitstoot van broeikasgassen. Maar het aandeel kunstmest blijkt zo gering, dat versobering van het gebruik daarvan weinig zal uithalen.
Zou het niet zinniger zijn prioriteiten te bepalen vast te stellen en te bepalen wie en welke sector van activiteiten recht heeft op welk aandeel in de schaarse hernieuwbare energiebronnen?

Bij de productie van de gemiddeld per Nederlander gebruikte kunstmest in onze landbouw wordt per jaar ongeveer 35 kg CO2-equivalenten aan broeikasgas uitgestoten. Om dat getal in perspectief te zetten: iemand die jaarrond op een elektrische fiets naar school of naar het werk gaat stoot al snel drie keer zo veel uit.

Voorwaarden voor een duurzaam voedselsysteem
Veel van de zojuist genoemde kennis en feiten werden gebruikt door Olivier Honnay, hoogleraar in Leuven, om een wereldvoedselsysteem te schetsen dat voedselzekerheid kan bieden. Het moest een bevolking van 10 miljard mensen kunnen voeden en klimaatverandering onder controle houden. Honnay werd geïnspireerd door een publicatie van het World Resources Institute en beschreef zijn oplossingen in Uitdagingen voor het verduurzamen van het mondiale voedselsysteem.
Gezien de grote energie-voet waarop ons leven is gebaseerd, ontkomen we niet aan versobering op alle fronten. Binnen het voedselsysteem betekent dit dat voedselverspilling moet worden teruggedrongen. Dat geldt ook voor de productie van dierlijke eiwitten. Honnay gaat uit van een vermindering van de huidige mondiale veestapel met 30%.

Het gebruik van kunstmest is voor Honnay een belangrijke voorwaarde; kunstmestgebruik voor productieve landbouw op de beste gronden in de diverse regio’s van de wereld. In sommige delen van de wereld zullen de beste gronden minder goed zijn dan in andere. Dat zullen we moeten accepteren om de mondiaal gezien beste gronden, de mindere elders in de wereld niet uit te laten boeren. Dat is nodig om de nog altijd groeiende wereldbevolking te kunnen voeden en ruimte te creëren en te houden voor natuurlijke ecosystemen en hun biodiversiteit. Een groter areaal aan goed beschermde natuurlijke ecosystemen en akkers en weiden met een grotere opslag van koolstof in levende en dode organische stof, maken het mogelijk de temperatuurstijging onder de 2 graden Celsius te houden.

Met alleen technologische oplossingen zal de bestaande samenleving het energiegebruik niet terugdringen. Daarvoor zijn meer gelijkheid, democratie, goede diensten en nieuwe infrastructuur nodig

In plaats van kunstmest uit te bannen, is het veel effectiever om lokale overdosering van kunstmest in de rijke wereld te voorkomen. Tevens moet het gesleep met voeders en voedsel zo veel mogelijk stoppen. Daarom moet op de meest geschikte gronden in alle wereldregio’s de landbouwproductiviteit naar een soort van wereldgemiddelde van minstens 4.000 kg/ha aan graanequivalenten. Met die paar eenvoudig te bedenken – maar niet gemakkelijk uit te voeren – aanpassingen van het mondiale voedselsysteem verandert de focus van maximalisatie van de productie op bepaalde plekken, naar gespreide optimalisatie voor klimaat en biodiversiteit bij voldoende voedselzekerheid. In arme landen in Afrika en elders moet landbouwontwikkeling leiden tot sociaaleconomische ontwikkeling, waardoor het haalbaar wordt dat de wereldbevolking niet verder zal groeien dan tot 10 miljard mensen. Onder dergelijke voorwaarden kunnen 10 miljard mensen in goede welstand leven, denkt Honnay, en kan de temperatuurstijging beperkt blijven tot 2oC zal stijgen. Zonder kunstmest zal dat echter niet lukken.

Honnay staat niet alleen in zijn overtuiging dat het nog mogelijk is een duurzame economie op te zetten. Naast het World Resources Institute dat hem inspireerde, wijst de Zwitserse ecologie-econoom Julia Steinberger op het belang van een nieuwe maatschappijstructuur. Met alleen technologische oplossingen zal de bestaande samenleving het energiegebruik niet terugdringen. Daarvoor zijn meer gelijkheid, democratie, goede diensten en nieuwe infrastructuur nodig, denkt Steinberger en Honnay met haar.

Zeven aandachtspunten
Het Realisatieplan Visie LNV: op weg met nieuw perspectief is een stapje naar meer circulaire landbouw. Maar wil het zoden aan de dijk zetten dan zal er echt meer van de suggesties van het WRI en mensen als Honnay en Steinberger in te vinden moeten zijn. Tot slot formuleren we een aantal aandachtspunten die uit onze serie artikelen over GCM’s kunnen worden gedestilleerd:

CMs, circulaire meststoffen, hebben meer kans om een nuttige rol te gaan spelen dan GMs, de groene meststoffen die geproduceerd met alternatieve energie

1. Broeikasgassen en klimaat, voedselzekerheid en biodiversiteit kennen geen landsgrenzen. Oplossingen op nationaal niveau zijn schijnoplossingen, zolang de invloed ervan elders niet neutraal of positief is. Internationale politiek is naast nationale politiek onmisbaar.
2. Er zijn nog geen GCMs gevonden die het hart sneller doen kloppen. Zo zuinig mogelijk omgaan met de huidige meststoffen blijft de beste aanbeveling; voorkomen is beter dan genezen.
3. Pas op voor het zoeken en ontwikkelen van GCMs als window dressing. De uitstoot van broeikasgassen bij de productie van kunstmest is een minieme fractie van onze totale uitstoot en levert een veel grotere vastlegging van koolstof op. Sterke versobering van onze manier van leven is vele malen effectiever dan gebruik van GCMs. CMs, circulaire meststoffen, hebben meer kans om een nuttige rol te gaan spelen dan GMs, de groene meststoffen die geproduceerd met alternatieve energie.
4. Bij het zoeken naar en het ontwikkelen van GCMs moeten stikstof en koolstof zeker zoveel aandacht krijgen als momenteel de minerale voedingsstoffen.
5.Om een kans te maken op succes moet de wereldvoedselvoorziening meer gebaseerd zijn op regionale productie. Gesleep met voedsel en veevoeder tussen continenten zou niet langer gesubsidieerd moeten worden door brandstoffen voor groot internationaal transport niet of slechts laag te belasten. Inspanningen om kunstmest beschikbaar en toegankelijk te maken in arme landen met beperkte landbouwontwikkeling en om boeren te interesseren voor het gebruik ervan, zijn een effectieve bijdrage in de strijd tegen klimaatverandering.
6. Voorlopig heeft het terugdringen van verliezen van voedingsstoffen, hun terugwinning en het vastleggen van koolstof veel meer prioriteit dan het zoeken naar mogelijkheden om kunstmest groen te produceren via alternatieve energiebronnen.
7. De bestaande rijke wereld zal inclusiever moeten worden door natuurlijke hulpbronnen te delen met mensen elders in de wereld. Dat vergt versobering en dus de ontwikkeling van nieuwe gewoontes, en is de sociale voorwaarde om verduurzaming en circulariteit resultaat te laten opleveren.

Maandag 1 november verscheen deel 1: Groene Circulaire Meststoffen: wat zijn het, waarom willen ze en gaan het we ermee redden. Woensdag 3 november verscheen deel 2: Van stedelijke beerput naar kunstmest en weer terug. Zaterdag 6 november verscheen deel 3: Te duur?. Woensdag 10 november verscheen deel 4: De voor- en nadelen van Groene Circulaire Meststoffen. Zaterdag 13 november verscheen deel 5: Verlaten van lineaire landbouw heeft grote consequenties voor onze manier van leven. Zondag 20 november verscheen deel 6: Landbouw en ongelijkheid.

Deze serie wordt, zonder enige redactionele invloed, mogelijk gemaakt door boerencoöperatie Agrifirm. Boeren hebben behoefte aan perspectief en willen graag een duidelijk beeld van de meststoffen die ze de komende 30 jaar mogen gebruiken. Dat beeld is er op dit moment nog niet en kan daarom in de openheid van een niet-ideologisch en zo feitelijk mogelijk gesprek ontwikkeld worden. Een en ander als voorbereiding op (politieke) meningsvorming en normstellingen.

Het Planbureau voor de Leefomgeving adviseert de overheid te komen met dwingende normen voor circulariteit, met name op het gebied van landbouw. Eén van de belangrijkste circulaire schakels in de landbouw is die van mest. Dieren (mensen incluis) eten planten of elkaar en produceren mest die voedsel is voor nieuw leven. Werkt die natuurlijke circulariteit ook in het landbouwsysteem, dat wil zeggen in de natuur die we hebben ingericht om de wensen van naar welvaart strevende mensen optimaal te bedienen? We willen genoeg te eten hebben en daar niet al te veel voor betalen. Tevens willen we de biodiversiteit versterken. Met kunstmest kan dat, een strategie waar de VS op in lijken te zetten. Europese overheden willen er vanaf omdat het maken van kunstmest veel fossiele energie kost en bij te royale toepassing de bodem uitboert. Op dit moment ligt de kunstmestfabriek van Yara in Sluiskil stil omdat de aardgasprijzen te hoog zijn om tegen acceptabele prijzen kunstmest te produceren. Met de Green Deal en de Farm2Fork-strategie heeft de EU heeft besloten voor 25% fossielvrije landbouw te gaan.
Een nieuw tijdperk kondigt zich aan. Den Haag en Brussel stellen de voedselketen voor een nieuwe uitdaging, met nieuwe normen waaraan de landbouw moet voldoen.

Facebook may be getting pelted of late by revelations from whistleblowers and damning internal documents made public, but the Mark Zuckerberg co-founded social media giant has decided to draw the line when it comes to the upcoming TV series Doomsday Machine.

“AC can seek to create the Series without reliance on the absurd characterizations and false narratives of the Book,” said a letter sent this morning to Anonymous Content CEO Dawn Olmstead from GreenbergTraurig partner Mathew Rosengart on behalf of Facebook, in regards to the Claire Foy-starring project based on the bestseller An Ugly Truth.

“Although our client is a public figure, the truth still matters,” added Rosengart, who also has Britney Spears among his clients.

The TV adaptation was announced earlier this month, with The Crown veteran cast as Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg. No word yet on who is playing Zuckerberg. (Also, no word on what the brand-besieged Facebook plans on changing its name to later this week, as has been rumored.)

Warning Anonymous Content, which is producing the Ayad Akhtar-created series with Mare of Easttown producer wiip, to not proceed “recklessly” or risk exposing “AC and others, including financiers, investors, insurers, talent, and exhibitors to significant monetary liability,” the four-page correspondence from Rosengart is a classic case of a warning shot across the bow. At the same time, the letter makes it clear that Facebook considers the New York Times’ Sheera Frenkel and Cecilia Kang’s July 2021-released An Ugly Truth: Inside Facebook’s Battle for Domination to be full of one “grossly misleading characterization” after another. Putting the threat of a defamation lawsuit out there, Rosengart aims to send a chill:

As an initial matter, Facebook obviously recognizes that it is a public figure and has great respect for the First Amendment and the right of journalists and film or television producers to publish stories about it. As you know, however, the First Amendment does not protect knowingly false statements or portrayals—or those made with reckless disregard for the truth—even about public figures. Accordingly, although Facebook might consider working with you to ensure the project (if it proceeds) is accurate and truthful, this letter places you on express notice that (i) the Book is replete with false and defamatory statements, characterizations, and implications about Facebook and its leadership and also places Facebook and its leaders in a “false light,” in violation of California law and (ii) if the screenplay includes false statements, characterizations, and implications (and does not include appropriate nuance and context), Facebook will take all appropriate legal action.

In that vein, the letter cites four particular portions of An Ugly Truth as legal traps. Disputing that the tech goliath made a “deal” with Donald Trump or that the company spies on it staff, Rosengart claims that the well received and acclaimed An Ugly Truth has “a false narrative.” He goes on to say the book based on the authors’ reporting and the reporting of the New Yorker’s Andrew Marantz “was based on cherry-picked accounts from selective interviews, many from disgruntled individuals who were biased and otherwise lacked credibility.” The former prosecutor adds, “the Book’s authors and editors baldly rejected the truthful accounts of the numerous Facebook executives who spoke with them.”

Reps for Anonymous Content did not reply to Deadline’s request for comment on the correspondence. If and when they do, we will update this post.

Rosengart is of course fresh off getting Spears’ father last month tossed off the oppressive conservatorship that has essentially ruled the onetime Princess of Pop’s life since 2008.

Praised as a “tough as nails streetfighter with a big brain and bigger principles” by client Sean Penn in a recent NOW profile and gushed over (“Thankfully I found an amazing attorney Mathew Rosengart who has helped change my life!!!”) by Spears, who brought the lawyer onboard this summer, Rosengart has also represented the likes of Steven Spielberg, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Eddie Vedder and the NBA’s Jimmy Butler, as well as Michael Mann’s Forward Pass and Open Road Films.

Rosengart will be back in Los Angeles Superior Court on November 12 for a hearing in front of Judge Brenda Penny that looks likely to be the beginning of the end of Spears’ 13-year conservatorship.

On the Facebook front, the stock is up 0.38% today at around $325—that’s up sharply from the $270s at the start of the year but off its 52-week high of $384 earlier this fall amid a drumbeat of negative news launched by “The Facebook Files” series of exposés in the Wall Street Journal and other outlets led by whistleblower Francis Haugen. She is testifying for UK legislators today after a turn in D.C.

Adding to the timing of today’s letter to Anonymous Content, Facebook reports earnings after market close Monday and investors are also anxious to see the fallout from Apple’s new iOS privacy settings that hit Snap’s quarterly numbers and its stock hard last week.

Joe Biden and Vladimir Poutine are due to meet on Tuesday, December 7 by videoconference, while the military mobilization of Russia, at the gates of Ukraine, raises all speculation. Appointed special representative of the United States in this country in 2017, Kurt Volker, now a researcher at the Center for European Policy Analysis (CEPA), had to resign from his functions in 2019 following his involvement in the pressure exerted by the American president Donald Trump on his Ukrainian counterpart; the case had resulted in the impeachment of Mr. Trump by Congress. In an interview with World, the former diplomat reconsiders the policy of the Biden administration vis-à-vis Russia.

When he arrived at the White House, Joe Biden did not claim any grand design in the bilateral relationship with Moscow, unlike Barack Obama’s attempt to “relaunch” (“reset”) …

Joe Biden didn’t like the word « reset », he claimed to do something different. He wanted to create a stable and more predictable relationship. His administration has chosen not to attack Russia on a number of issues: the annexation of Crimea, the occupation of parts of Georgia, electoral interference, the poisoning of [Alexeï] Navalny, the assassinations and poisonings in Europe… They said: we will try to work with Russia where possible, to lower the temperature.

You may not like the word, but in fact it is a « reset ». It consists of drawing a line under the preceding events and of considering that one will react only from now on, in the event of bad behavior. But this harmful behavior of Russia, precisely, has worsened, instead of reduced. They had three major military mobilizations this year, Exercise Zapad [manœuvres conjointes qui ont lieu tous les quatre ans] and two around Ukraine. They have taken control, in effect, of Belarus on a security level. They dramatically accentuate rhetoric hostile to Ukraine, denying it the right to be a sovereign and independent state, and claiming that Russia has a say in its fate. We can also cite new cyber attacks.

The Russian president is asking for written guarantees on a stop to the extension of NATO, which his American counterpart cannot give him. What do you expect from the video interview between the two leaders?

Biden should tell him that neither NATO, Ukraine, nor Georgia pose a threat to Russia. No one is attacking it, no one has troops on its territory, while Russia has soldiers in neighboring countries. These are independent states, recognized by Russia, which had undertaken to respect their borders, which it does not do. If Russia does not launch an attack, new military incursions against Ukraine, everything will be stable. On the other hand, otherwise, there will be very severe consequences for it.

I often write that the global economy, in physics terms, is an energy-driven dissipative structure. It may grow for a time, but eventually it reaches limits of many kinds. Then eventually growth stops and it collapses.

As far as I’m concerned, the global economy is showing signs that it has reached a turning point. Economic growth stopped in 2020 and is struggling to pick up again in 2021. There is a shortage of all kinds of fossil fuels (oil, coal and natural gas) in relation to the enormous world population. Ultimately, this inadequate energy supply can be expected to push the global economy to the brink of collapse.

The global economy is not behaving the way most people would expect. Standard modeling approaches ignore the fact that economies need an adequate supply of energy products of the right kind, delivered at the right times of the day and year, if they are not to collapse. Shortages are not necessarily characterized by high prices; prices that are too low for producers will quickly collapse the energy supply. A collapse can happen due to insufficient demand; in fact, such a scenario is described in Revelation 18.

Strange as it may seem, we may be approaching what some of us would consider end times, as our economy collapses due to lack of cheaply-produced energy supplies.

Which writes actuary Gail Tverber in her introduction to a long text with captivating graphs all pointing downwards. Interesting is her comment about fossil energy remaining in the ground. Oil, gas and coal companies are running short because they know that high production volumes will not recoup their investments in higher production. That part of her analysis resembles the actual situation in which oil, gas and coal cannot keep up with demand and production remains under control. As a result, the prices of all consumer goods (from food and gas to cars and computers) remain high, so that the rich with large business interests quickly get richer and have no interest in rushing production. They get richer from doing nothing than from doing more. However, those who do not have invested money become impoverished. De Volkskrant reports today that daily life has again become more expensive in November. The prices the Dutch paid for goods and services rose by 5.2 percent compared to the same month last year, the highest inflation since 1982. The faster the prices rise, the less citizens can buy from their wages, pension or benefits.

At the same time, the production of sustainable energy is far from being able to satisfy the great hunger for cheap energy that made the masses in Western countries rich due to their great purchasing power as a result of low prices. Relatively too rich and too powerful rich people, especially Western countries no longer accept since The Glorious Revolution in England (1688) and the French Revolution (1789). Both revolutions can be seen as a historical development of human societies towards a better distribution of wealth and power. This deep, anthropological trend is described in the well-known book Why Nations Fail by Robinson and Acemoglu. The classic Capital in the 21st Century by Thomas Piketty may be read in the same light.

Tverberg worked as a risk expert for insurers and decided in 2007 to write about the scarcity that she saw occurring, especially in the field of energy. Whether she is an end-time prophet and the Four Horsemen dragging in from the Book of Revelations in its analysis as there have been so many in history, the future will tell.

As far as I’m concerned, the global economy is showing signs that it has reached a turning point. Economic growth stopped in 2020 and is struggling to pick up again in 2021. There is a shortage of all kinds of fossil fuels (oil, coal and natural gas) in relation to the enormous world population. Ultimately, this inadequate energy supply can be expected to push the global economy to the brink of collapse.

The global economy is not behaving the way most people would expect. Standard modeling approaches ignore the fact that economies need an adequate supply of energy products of the right kind, delivered at the right times of the day and year, if they are not to collapse. Shortages are not necessarily characterized by high prices; prices that are too low for producers will quickly collapse the energy supply. A collapse can happen due to insufficient demand; in fact, such a scenario is described in Revelation 18.

Strange as it may seem, we may be approaching what some of us would consider end times, as our economy collapses due to lack of cheaply-produced energy supplies.

Which writes actuary Gail Tverber in her introduction to a long text with captivating graphs all pointing downwards. Interesting is her comment about fossil energy remaining in the ground. Oil, gas and coal companies are running short because they know that high production volumes will not recoup their investments in higher production. That part of her analysis resembles the actual situation in which oil, gas and coal cannot keep up with demand and production remains under control. As a result, the prices of all consumer goods (from food and gas to cars and computers) remain high, so that the rich with large business interests quickly get richer and have no interest in rushing production. They get richer from doing nothing than from doing more. However, those who do not have invested money become impoverished. De Volkskrant reports today that daily life has again become more expensive in November. The prices the Dutch paid for goods and services rose by 5.2 percent compared to the same month last year, the highest inflation since 1982. The faster the prices rise, the less citizens can buy from their wages, pension or benefits.

At the same time, the production of sustainable energy is far from being able to satisfy the great hunger for cheap energy that made the masses in Western countries rich due to their great purchasing power as a result of low prices. Relatively too rich and too powerful rich people, especially Western countries no longer accept since The Glorious Revolution in England (1688) and the French Revolution (1789). Both revolutions can be seen as a historical development of human societies towards a better distribution of wealth and power. This deep, anthropological trend is described in the well-known book Why Nations Fail by Robinson and Acemoglu. The classic Capital in the 21st Century by Thomas Piketty may be read in the same light.

Tverberg worked as a risk expert for insurers and decided in 2007 to write about the scarcity that she saw occurring, especially in the field of energy. Whether she is an end-time prophet and the Four Horsemen dragging in from the Book of Revelations in its analysis as there have been so many in history, the future will tell.

To try to shed light on what this expression covers, let us take the example of Strasbourg in 1399, when it was a question of choosing on which side of the facade of the cathedral to build the spire. Let us suppose that the City then proceeded to a preposterous survey by asking the inhabitants to place in front of their homes a flag representing the tower, either to the left or to the right of the facade. For several weeks, everyone could change their mind and replace the pennant in front of their house. No one had a preconceived opinion and could, in a fairly versatile way, change their mind spontaneously. On the other hand, everyone going about their business saw the choice of their neighbors and was influenced by it, either positively (by imitating friendly neighbors), or negatively (by wanting to have a choice opposed to neighbors considered painful). If this interaction had been guided exclusively by imitation, this rather peculiar election would have looked a lot like what happens in a magnet. A large majority vote for one side would have emerged after some time, just as magnetization results from the concerted interaction of tiny magnets carried by atoms.

Spin glasses

Parisi’s work has focused on more complex but more realistic cases, when the nature of interactions between neighbors is “frozen” in a random position, each citizen having a certain proportion of friendly neighbors and annoying neighbors. The “disorder” of which the Nobel committee speaks refers to this frozen randomness, which introduces indeterminacy and frustration into the choice of each and everyone and prevents the emergence of a clear collective behavior. For example, the City of 1399 would not have seen in this case a collective opinion manifesting itself spontaneously, the numbers of votes of the two camps differing only by very slight fluctuations. For the physicist, this situation is a challenge: because if nothing emerges macroscopically, extremely complex correlations to describe nevertheless exist inside such a system and render its responses to external requests (a classic way of exploring the material in physics) slow and difficult to decipher. In the 1980s, Parisi was the first, on the one hand to show which concepts are relevant to analyze them, and on the other hand to describe the immense complexity behind their very slow evolution in time, another signature of these so-called “spin-glass” states.
