Sadistic Capitalism: Six Urgent Matters for Humanity in Global Crisis 12.4.2016 Truthout - All Articles
The current crisis of global capitalism shares aspects of earlier structural crises of world capitalism, but there are six novel, interrelated dimensions to the present moment that show how countries and peoples around the world are experiencing a descent into chaos and uncertainty. How we interpret the global crisis is itself a matter of vital importance as politics polarize worldwide between a neofascist and a popular response. Peaceful protesters join in a general strike in Oakland, California, November, 2011. "The systemic critique of global capitalism must strive to influence, from this vantage point, the discourse and practice of movements for a more just distribution of wealth and power," writes William I. Robinson. "Our survival may depend on it." (Photo: Rainforest Action Network / Flickr ) In these mean streets of globalized capitalism in crisis, it has become profitable to turn poverty and inequality into a tourist attraction.

8 Herbs and Veggies You Can Regrow From Kitchen Scraps 2.4.2016 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
by Shelbi Stoneback, associate director of customer experience at Rodale Did you know that you only need a jar and some water to get start growing more food from your very own kitchen scraps that you might otherwise toss? When I told a coworker about this story, her response was, "Wait--that's like free food!" And she's exactly right! Why buy green onions every other week for salads and stir-fries when you can regrow them at home for free? For example, I placed scallion bottoms with roots in a small jar with only water, and in just one week I had almost 2 inches of new growth. Start with these organic veggies, and get more out of your weekly groceries scraps you might otherwise just be throwing away. Green Onions Simply cut your onions as close as you want to the roots, leaving some of the white bulb. Place the roots in a small jar and add enough water to cover them. Set the jar on a windowsill in sunlight. Change the water every few days, and in less than a week, you'll have new cuttable onions. TIP: ...

One Billion Strong: Can Chinese Megacities Lead on Urban Conservation? 1.4.2016 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
I recently returned from a trip to meet a dynamic group of colleagues who are working to bring nature to cities in one of the fastest-urbanizing nations in the world ­­- China. The future offers tremendous environmental risk from urbanization, as well as incredible potential to bring nature's power to cities, and I'm sure of one thing: Whatever happens, China will be at the center. The scale and speed at which China is urbanizing is unique. Over the past three decades, China has experienced an unprecedented economic and social transformation. Millions have been lifted out of poverty as the country modernized and focused on manufacturing. In this time, more than 400 million Chinese citizens have moved from the countryside to cities. More than 100 cities now exceed a million people, and by 2030 a billion Chinese will call a city home. This is truly the greatest migration in human history. Cities exploded onto the scene - with no example more telling than the southern city of Shenzen . In 1980, Shenzen was ...
