Aurora Borealis 2Themes: This Will Not Be Easy - Putin's Way of Destroying the Future. Summer break is over. Putin insists on bringing back tsaristic Russia. If he succeeds, sooner than expected Earth will spit out humanity like an annoying mosquito flown into its mouth. Evolution can also get along very well without two-legged nostalgics, as it recently showed impressively with the dinosaurs. But not everyone realizes yet that first of all another lonley winter, cold in every respect, has to be survived. This will not be easy. An analysis from the colleagues at "Foreign Affairs" on where we stand and what to expect, read on, extern site, The World Putin Wants - How Distortions About the Past Feed Delusions About the Future

Climate Change Makes Thirsty. In a new study published in Nature Climate Change an international group of researchers from Germany, the Netherlands and Australia investigated how simultaneous changes in energy and water availability affect vegetation functioning across the globe. An intern cooling ability of plants is important especially during heat waves. It can help to dampen the highest hot temperature extremes and associated heat stress, potentially reducing heat- related deaths. As decreasing soil moisture meets rising temperatures and water shortage, plants will become increasingly thirsty, affecting vegetation as a whole, as well as the quality and quantity of their services to society.

Equipping 4-year-olds with loaded guns and the decomposition of democracy into opposing factions - an article by social psychologist Jonathan Haidt in "The Atlantic", Why the past 10 years of American life have been uniquely stupid - It's not just a phase

In addition to Frances Haugen's proposals, we also advocate for a small, workable, first step, namely the right of reply, on social media, which originated in the press. Social media platforms should be required to publish counter-representations right next to the usual curses and threats, visible at a glance to all users, and even if those affected by hate campaigns are not themselves members of those platforms. The goal is to finally make the information and exchange of different positions technically possible, and thus no more and no less than to introduce the discussions of different views as such, which are indispensable for any democracy - and on these platforms were obviously led ad absurdum.

WTO: The Global Impact of War. According to a new WTO secretariat note the war costs in terms of reduced trade and output are likely to be felt by people around the world through higher food and energy prices and reduced availability of goods exported by Russia and Ukraine. Europe could experience the brunt of the economic impact, but Africa and Middle East are the most vulnerable regions, as they import over 50 per cent of their cereal needs from Ukraine and/or Russia. The Secretariat note warns "the current crises is likely to exacerbate international food insecurity at a time, when food prices are already historical hight due to the Covid-19 pandemic and other factors." Furthermore the current development could trigger disintegration of the global economy with income losses that likely reduce GDP in the long run about 5 per cent. In Addition the GDP decline could be much more servere than these first estimates that used only a limited set of simulation models.
