Food, Not War, Is the Biggest Threat to World Security | Scientific America

Comdude wrote a new blog post: The Drought in California Recently the governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, announced that this year California would be facing drought again.  This information was probably not observed first-hand by the governor, but most likely trickled into his office by way of the bureaucracy, to wit, possibly, the Department of Water Resources, or some such thing.

Goldman (NYSE: GS) Is Feeling the Gold Drought?
2008-06-06 15:23:00
Goldman Sachs (NYSE: GS) must be feeling the heat as recent economic developments haven't generated much-needed optmism. The times, when the company was at the top of the mountain have ended. I do not own shares in Goldman Sachs (NYSE: GS) and I am not a client of the world's largest investment bank. But I have my own opinion about this company. Have a comfortable seat.

Barcelona Ends Goal Drought In Style;Barca-6, Valencia-0
2008-05-05 06:49:00
I actually don't know what to make out of this result. On a positive note, we can consider this as a turning point on which the next season can be build upon, or this could also be an indication of how bad the season was for a side like Valencia. Whatever; on a night in which Madrid retained the League title, Barcelona put up an impressive display against Valencia ending their goal drought but putting six across the net. One could only hope that if one of them came at that eventual night at Old Trafford. This win would have boosted the morale of Barcelona side ahead of the El Classico at Barnebeu. That match has no significance apart from the fact that Barcelona could salvage some pride by beating the champions. But the suspension to Eto and Deco could very well end up Barcelona dreams.Barcelona got off to the best possible start when Messi won the penalty in the 4th minute. Messi made a great run, dribbling past defenders and drew the foul on him from Alexis. Valencia could consid...

South Australia Water Prognosis. Grimmer and Grimmmer
2008-03-29 01:46:00
In a week when we finally get some rain, it is depressing to see this and read this.234km upstream of its now mud- and sand-choked entrance to the Southern Ocean, the river flowed proud and strong. People would ski and fish in the lagoon at nearby Walker Flat, on one of the Murray's most picturesque reaches. Today, the waterhole is virtually dry. Lifeless gum trees stand like sun-scorched toothpicks on its banks, where the water used to be waist-deep. "I walked out the other day with waders into a metre of mud," said David le Brun, who operates night tours for visitors to Big Bend. "For the people on the river, who live on it, it is devastating." Nothing new, just the grim reality.Very like the Colorado River just as it enters Mexico. Everybody else gets their dibs. South Australia gets the dregs.South Australia, the water gringos of Australia.

Best Drought Tolerant Garden Plants
2008-03-21 16:07:00
Most areas of the country are seeing a big change in the way we plant a garden. Water is becoming more and more a precious commodity and most gardeners are trying to find ways to plant a drought tolerant garden. Planting your garden with drought resistant plants doesn't have to be limited to flowers that look like bracken most of the year, or cacti and succulents that hardly speak to your need for a cottage garden. Many widely available plants are drought resistant or drought tolerant, and once established, need little or no supplemental water. As a bonus, many can be grown from seed for those of us who garden on a budget. Here are The Garden Glove's top picks for easy to grow from seed, drought tolerant plants.Black Eyed Susan (Rudbeckia )Yarrow (Achillea)Perennial Sunflower (Heliopsis)Poppies (Papaver)Evening Primrose (Oenothera)Fountain Grass (Pennisetum)Mallow (Malva)Purple Coneflower (Echinacea)Globe Thistle (Echinops)Tickseed (Coreopsis)Blazing Star (Liatris)Butterfly Bush (...

DROUGHT TOLERANT AUSTRALIAN PLANTS - LILLY PILLY
2008-02-11 16:24:00
One of the drought tolerant Australian plants I am currently trying out in my garden as an alternative to traditional topiary is the Lilly Pilly.The lilly pilly is one of the most popular plants in Australian gardening, particularly for topiary and hedging. Lilly pilly is the common name for a range of separate genera of what are basically evergreen rainforest plants with glossy green leaves.Once lilly pillies were all known as eugenias. In recent years botanists have divided them into several genera, including Acmena, Syzygium and Waterhousea. They are very adaptable because they can take it dry or wet for long periods at a time but they do like it best where there is some good summer rainfall and deep soil.They supposedly don?t tolerate frosts, but according to Di Johnson of the Garden Vineyard, they are undamaged by the mild frosts she recieves. I'll let you know how they fare here in the Midlands UK.The most commonly available form here in the UK is Syzygium australe which h...

DROUGHT TOLERANT PLANTING - LEARNING FROM THE AUSTRALIANS
2008-02-05 15:10:00
Monty Don's new Sunday night BBC programme 'Around the Garden in 80 Days' was focussed on the gardens of Australasia last week.What I found most interesting about the show was Di Johnson's Garden Vineyard (on the Mornington Peninsula near Melbourne) and the way that she was clipping and topiarising drought tolerant Australian natives into columns and domes - much as we do here with box and yew.Finding hardy drought and flood tolerant alternatives to our favourite garden plants is going to be more and more important as we continue to garden in the changing climate.Although Taxus (Yew) is pretty drought tolerant, it is famously averse to waterlogged soil and flooding which can easily kill off even established specimens.Buxus (Box) can cope with moist to dry conditions but will not survive a drought and the sheared leaves can scorch in hot weather. Add to this potential problems with box blight and there is going to be a real gap in the garden designers planting palette if an alt...
Will our championship drought in the Super Bowl of elections ever end?
2008-02-01 23:52:00
It’s been 99 years since the Chicago Cubs have won a World Series. But they, as well as teams that have never won a Super Bowl, aren’t the only ones in the throes of a championship drought. No one is more long-suffering than those of us who dream of a progressive president. Or, less unrealistically, one who at least places the priorities of the people before those of the rich. If the presidential primaries are like the regular season, Super Tuesday resembles Major League Baseball’s playoffs, which determine who will play in the World Series. But the outcome of the election itself isn’t decided in four to seven days like the World Series, just one. Election day then is more akin to the Super Bowl. And we the people haven’t won one since the winning streak of Franklin Roosevelt, a president who dared to rein in the rich. Since then, candidates like Adlai Stevenson and George McGovern have inspired progressives, but been blown out. Meanwhile, thanks to the...

Three months have past since I last posted and I must admit, while I am busy typing this and thinking what I can write about, I really wonder if anyone will end up reading this?? How long away from blogging is too long? For how long do blog readers return to see if you have posted yet? And, just how much have I missed out on in the blogging world in the past 3 months?... I don't really know the exact answer to any of those questions, but I do look forward to catching up with all my favourite bloggers.I would just like to say how glad I am that the past few weeks are over!
