Gone with the Wind: how a 1936 novel explains modern America | History Extra podcast

The latest news from the team behind BBC History Magazine – a popular History magazine. To find out more, visit http://www.historyextra.com

Professor Sarah Churchwell discusses her new book The Wrath to Come, which re-examines the controversial legacy of Margaret Mitchell’s immensely popular 1936 novel Gone With The Wind. Speaking with Rachel Dinning, she considers what it can tell us about American history and culture today, from the mythmaking that sprung up following the Civil War to the origins of modern debates over racism and the far right in the United States.

(Ad) Sarah Churchwell is the author of The Wrath to Come: Gone with the Wind and the Lies America Tells (Apollo, 2022). […]

BBC World Service – CrowdScience, Are humans naturally clean and tidy?

Answering your questions about life, Earth and the universe

From dumping raw sewage into rivers to littering the streets with our trash, humans don’t have a great track record when it comes to dealing with our waste. It’s something that CrowdScience listener and civil engineer Marc has noticed: he wonders if humans are particularly prone to messing up our surroundings, while other species are instinctively more hygienic and well-organised.

Are we, by nature, really less clean and tidy than other animals? Farming and technology have allowed us to live more densely and generate more rubbish – maybe our cleaning instincts just aren’t up to the vast quantities of waste we spew out? CrowdScience digs into the past to see if early human rubbish heaps can turn up any answers. […]

The Natural World, Joy, and Human Flourishing | On Being

This film is is part of On Being’s “A Wild Love for the World” Starting Point, a collection designed to accompany the exploration of our relationship with the natural world, including how a relationship of care might be inviting us to reconnect, replenish, and repair within the contexts of our lives, emboldening us to live into the generative future we hope is possible.

You can view the full collection here: onbeing.org/starting-points/a-wild-love-for-the-world/

This video contains voices and natural world related excerpts from On Being episodes with J. Drew Lanham, Robin Wall Kimmerer, Katy Payne, and Robert Macfarlane.

Study Finds World Can Switch to 100% Renewable Energy & Regain Investment in 6 Years | My Modern Met

By Jessica Stewart on August 4, 2022

This is a win-win for Earth and governments around the world.

With energy and fuel costs at an all-time high, the world is seeking cost-effective solutions for moving away from oil and gas for energy needs. Luckily, a new study by Stanford University says that it might not be as difficult as we think to move toward renewable energy sources. After examining 145 countries, the researchers have stated that switching to clean energy and electrifying all energy sectors won’t lead to blackouts or an increase in prices. In fact, according to the study, prices would immediately drop, and all of the up front costs for switching to 100% renewable energy would be paid back in just six years.

The study was headed by Professor Mark Z. Jacobson, professor of civil and environmental engineering at Stanford University and director of its Atmosphere/Energy Program. Professor Jacobson has long been an advocate for 100% renewable energy and published a book on the topic in 2020.

According to him, “We do not need miracle technologies to solve these problems. By electrifying all energy sectors; producing electricity from clean, renewable sources; creating heat, cold, and hydrogen from such electricity; storing electricity, heat, cold and the hydrogen; expanding transmission; and shifting the time of some electricity use, we can create safe, cheap, and reliable energy everywhere.”

One of the main reasons for this is that the combustion-based energy systems most countries use require quite a lot of energy just to function. In switching to a clean, renewable energy system, Professor Jacobson states that worldwide energy usage would go down by 56% immediately. The savings is due to the efficiency of clean energy over combustion systems, as well as the efficiency of electrified industry, as there would no longer be a need to spend energy obtaining fossil fuels.

And the good news doesn’t end there. A clean, renewable energy system reduces the cost per energy unit by an average of 12%, which results in a 63% lower annual energy cost. Of course, there are also many health benefits to a clean energy system that would cut down on pollution.

To make their evaluation, the team of researchers looked at onshore and offshore wind energy, solar power, solar heat, geothermal electricity and heat, hydroelectricity, and small amounts of tidal and wave electricity. […]
