The World Passes 400 PPM Threshold. Permanently. That’s carbon dioxide damage.

Posted on September 28th, 2016

carbon-dioxide-levels

In the centuries to come, history books will likely look back on September 2016 as a major milestone for the world’s climate. At a time when atmospheric carbon dioxide is usually at its minimum, the monthly value failed to drop below 400 parts per million. That all but ensures that 2016 will be the year that carbon dioxide officially passed the symbolic 400 ppm mark, never to return below it in our lifetimes, according to scientists. Because carbon pollution has been increasing since the start of the Industrial Revolution and has shown no signs of abating, it was more a question of “when” rather than “if” we would cross this threshold. The inevitability doesn’t make it any less significant, though. September is usually the month when carbon dioxide is at its lowest after a summer of plants growing and sucking it up in the northern hemisphere. As fall wears on, … Continue reading

TCB’s Miscellaneous Ramblings – August-September 2015

TCB’s Miscellaneous Ramblings – August-September 2015 The new security regime at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) is something else. I’m all for a secure environment, but this is over-kill, with due apologies for the K-word. On arrival at the airport, more the entrance to it, while still in your car, you are greeted with what seems to be a state-of-the-art all singing all dancing security apparatus – it certainly looks very high-tech. Evidently it does the business, it scans your car from the underside plus there is a side-scan – it is all seeing I’m told. However there is a major fly in the ointment. Evidently it only scans cars, their contents and the driver. All passengers must exit, cross over 5-6 lanes of busy traffic to be hand frisked by security personnel. You then re-join your vehicle on the other side. Whole busloads of passengers together with your guests … Continue reading

Horses helping children to cope with disabilities

Posted on July 23rd, 2015

In a large, grassy field tucked inside a residential area in Karen, children as young as four years are enjoying a session of horse riding. But this is no ordinary riding class, and these are no ordinary children, because every one of them has a physical, mental or learning disability. “We have a variety of disabilities, but there is a high proportion of cerebral palsy and autistic sufferers,” explains Sue Anderson, a trained horse riding instructor and founder of the charity, Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA) Kenya. For more than 20 years, Anderson and a group of volunteers have provided equine-assisted therapy for children, mostly from impoverished backgrounds, who suffer from developmental disorders, including muscular dystrophy, spinal injuries, polio, emotional and social delays. The 45-minute riding class is led by an instructor, and every rider has three supporters — a syce (a horse attendant) who leads the horse, and … Continue reading
