| January 5, 2018 | Leave a Comment

With the new year underway, we wanted to share some of the new materials that were recently added to the MAHB website, which you might have missed over the holidays:


Three articles from Gioietta Kuo regarding bees, the critical role they play in our lives, the threats they face, and the future of GMOs are available in the MAHB Library.

The Amazing Life of Bees –Our Indispensable Partner in Life

Bee –An Endangered Species

Where to? Genetic Engineering —Genetically Modified Organisms, GMO, Synthetic Life and Bioethics

Along with an interview with Paul R. Ehrlich published in The Ecological Citizen;

A second warning to humanity from world scientists and Jeremy Lent’s discussion of what it will take to avoid the predicted collapse and why we are not already taking action;

A review of the concept central to the film Downsizing –shrinking ourselves to reduce our ecological impact– by Erik Assadourian;

Eric Rimmer’s follow-up to his earlier article, The Population Crisis – A Call to Arms, in which he presents the numbers behind what it will take to stop total human population from ticking ever upward;

And, Richard Smith’s critical assessment of whether China can be the ecological civilization Xi Jinping has promised.
