      Pobjika valley is considered as one of the jewels of Bhutan. Besides its unspoiled natural beauty, the sceneries offered by the migration of the Black-necked Crane Bird have made this valley renown all over the world. This endemic Himalayan bird flies to Bhutan from October to March escaping from the cold Tibetan winter.

        • Is the growth in the emerging economies additional or are we growing more slowly?

          The three eminent speakers look at the limits to world economic growth from an environmental and economic perspective. Will inflation caused by rising primary product prices be likely to be the key constraint on economic growth? Douglas McWilliams, Thras Moraitis and Mike McWilliams consider whether this constraint will bite at a sufficiently slow rate for the impact of the extra growth in emerging economies to mean that the West will have to grow more slowly. The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/is-the-growth-in-the-emerging-economies-additional-or-are-we-growing-more-slowly Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597.

                  That is a tag worthy of the modern human, a voracious machine engineered by the so called industrial and agricultural revolutions, which should rank as the worst human blunders since the advent of money and, of course the curse of all, religion! No other living organism laboriously lumbers everything that is natural and is absolutely free into a never-ending array of artefacts and then sell them, just to be dumped back on earth even before these stop being useful. Very soon, there will be no space left on earth that is not littered with the muck we dump, and similarly, no place on earth will be left unscarred by our irresponsible and short-termist plundering. As the destruction of our planet continues unabated, and even accelerated, well into another century, it is becoming increasingly clearer that humans are actually mad, for no sane person destroys his or her own home. The madness however will end when you will be riding a 100-metre oceanic wave, if you manage to surf it that is. The day nature unleashes her fury is going to be much sooner than you think! Why can’t we comprehend the simple truth that everything nature offers is free for all living organisms, and that all she wants from us is to share it responsibly like all other creatures blatantly do?
