Why earthian?

We are moving into an unprecedented situation for human life on the planet - a full earth with limited resources, breaching a number of safe limits for human existence while social deprivation continues to be a challenge. Ponder these:

  • In the last 7000 years, in which all of human society and culture evolved, the global climate has never deviated as much as 2° from today's climate. As per the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the best estimate for temperature rise even in a low emission scenario is a steep 3.2° F. We are entering a situation that has never happened in the last 7000 years and that is something human society has never ever faced.
  • Conservative estimates suggest that more than 5000 species of our inherited genetic library irreversibly are extinguished every year. And this is 10000 times as fast as pre-human extinction rates.
  • As per World Bank statistics as of 2010, almost half the world, over 2.4 billion people, still lives on less than $2 a day.
  • According to UNICEF data as of 2010, 22000 children under 5 die every day due to poverty and malnutrition.

The current ways of dealing with these challenges have not created any significant shift in direction - in our thinking, attitude or behavior. It is increasingly becoming clear that we need a new way of thinking, sensibility, behavior and responses to approaching these challenges. earthian aims to help our schools and colleges prepare our younger generation to understand these challenges and build the knowledge, skills and attitude needed to deal with these.

An afternoon with Dr. Kaberi Kar Gupta, with a presentation and talk on Slender loris of urban Bangalore Till recently, Bangalore’s urban areas were home to an elusive, nocturnal primate, the slender loris; today, however, this shy animal remains restricted to only a few remnant sites. Where have the lorises gone? Where did they live in Bangalore before it became a metropolis? A team of scientists and naturalists have just launched a new citizen science project to answer these vital questions. Trained citizen scientists are participating in the loris survey. Dr. Kar Gupta had an exclusive session at Wipro Electronic City campus on this. For more information – to volunteer and to participate in the survey: bit.ly/lorisvolunteersignup bit.ly/urbanslenderlorissurvey ... See moreSee less
