Burning season( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"New studies show that the devastation of Indonesia's forests has helped to make the country the world's third-largest emitter of carbon dioxide. Can the trees be saved by selling their carbon credits? And if so, will small farmers whose livelihoods depend upon clearing the land reap a part of the profits? This ... report takes a balanced look at the concept and implementation of carbon credits, profiling both an entrepreneur championing the plan and a farmer who fears he will be adversely affected and unable to make ends meet. In addition, former Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack speaks with Aaron Brown about global warming and the need for America to innovate more aggressively - and to become a more responsible global citizen."--Container

The burning season by John Frankenheimer( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Every hour in Indonesian rainforests, an area the size of 300 soccer fields is mowed down and burned. Often this clearing is done to make way for oil palm plantations. The resulting palm oil is used for cooking, cleaning and even as a biofuel. But the fires farmers set to clear their land have helped to make Indonesia the world's third-largest emitter of carbon dioxide -- exceeded only by the U.S. and China. A 29-year-old Australian "green" entrepreneur named Dorjee Sun believes he has a solution to reduce those harmful greenhouse gas emissions. He has canvassed the world pitching the sale of Indonesia's carbon credits to polluters in the West. His business model would maintain the standing swaths of Indonesia's rainforests by selling their carbon credits. Burning Season follows Dorjee Sun on a whirlwind trip into boardrooms around the world - from Starbucks to eBay to Merrill Lynch - as he tries to convince skeptical financiers that his proposal is viable. To carry out his plan, local political leaders in Indonesia must also agree that their forests are worth more alive than dead. Small farmers like Achmadi, who makes a living by cutting down trees to plant oil palms, fear the layers of government officials will be the only profiteers from the carbon credit sale. Burning Season kindles both sides of the climate divide and explores whether capitalism can step in where altruism has so far failed to succeed."--WideAngle website

[Comment on the Scientific Report of the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee] by Jackie M McClaskey( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As the report recognizes, at a time when two in three adults in this country is considered to be overweight or obese and nearly half of our nation's adults has a preventable, chronic disease, providing the American people with science-driven dietary guidelines is more important to our nation's wellbeing than ever before. While the Report properly outlines the role of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and dairy in a healthy American diet, it misrepresents the nutritional and health benefits of lean, red meat. Furthermore, the Report's treatment of the topic of sustainability inappropriately extends beyond the intended scope of the committee as well as the expertise of its members."
