Could Coffee be our final push?

Over the Christmas holidays, another issue of the New Scientist arrived, and in it was a very interesting and thought-provoking article about our fairly unhealthy addiction- coffee- could actually be the final push to spur us into action.

A quote from the NS says “Billions of people are hooked on Coffee and would find the prospect of its soaring cost irritating’.

What this article is really saying is that Climate Change could have a severe impact on coffee bean growth, and therefore the amount that would go into commercial sale. This would have a huge impact on not only those people who drink the coffee, but also those who grow it and the communities that may benefit from its huge commercial sales now would be badly hit in the future if climate change leads to a decrease in the amount of coffee that can be grown.

Coffee Bean growth relies on a delicate balance of rainfall and temperature. The NS says ‘The coffee plant is inordinately fussy about its growing conditions…unfortunately, these conditions are set to vanish from the places where coffee is traditionally grown’. In fact, coffee growth is at a 35-year low, which intensifies the situation.

However, this may not actually be a completely bad thing. If something that many people across the globe is diminished due to our own ignorance towards our planet’s well-being and the huge amount of industrial pollution we are sending into our atmosphere, then perhaps people will actually notice and this could have the potential of sending a hugely important message to the world about how badly we are affecting this planet.

I’m Back!

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year! Welcome to 2013…a new year, and changes will happen for all of us, which is strangely exciting.

Well, the end of the world failed to happen, which is kind of an anti-climax in a weird way.

Anyway, I am back from my brief holiday, and I am glad to have seen people are still viewing this blog, and hopefully still will for a lot longer!

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday, and a lovely New Year!

A New River found on Titan

Titan is the largest moon of Saturn, and recently the Cassini Spacecraft has found what ‘could be the longest river system seen beyond Earth’

The River valley on Titan is more than 400km from its ‘headwaters’ to a big sea, which is believed to be made up of mainly ethane and methane.

Rivers were found on Titan a while ago, when the Cassini dropped a spacecraft onto Titan. In fact, (quoted from Sky and Telescope) “Seasonal lakes grow and wane at the poles, while the largest dunes in the solar system gird the moon’s waist. There are river deltas, canyons, and even a sea as large as Lake Superior in North America.”

However, this discovery still surprised scientists as it is a lot larger than expected. In fact, this new river is over 250 miles long, which is around the same length of the Thames.

The river turns up in black on this image, as it is a radar image taken by a Spacecraft.

Recommended Subscription

If you are interested in science, climate change, space, technology, or just general knowledge, i would definitely recommend a subscription to the New Scientist. This isn’t a sponsor or anything (I am NOT getting money out of this), but this magazine has in-depth, intelligent articles that deserve to be read by as many people as possible. If you yourself are interested, or with Christmas coming up you could get it for a friend or family member, then here is the link to the subscription page- (it is quite expensive, but I think it is worth it):

Hello

As you may have picked up from the title, this is my first post. In a way, I am a virgin blogger. I do not yet know the purpose of this blog, only that I hope people will one day enjoy it. And at this rate, maybe not….
My blog name is quite insecure, as I dont know whether people will understand its intentions. However, the title does have a hidden meaning. ‘thepixelplot’- perhaps not very catchy but it has a certain ring to it. I chose it because I do believe that, in a way, my generation, the ‘new generation’, are pixels in this ageing photo which is our society. We don’t really have much of a say in anything, but we are there, making up the image whichever way you look at it.
But I better introduce myself to my currently non-existent readers. My name is Emily, I’m 15, Iam English, and I don’t like ice cream. That is about as exciting as I can get. I apologise. However, as will hopefully become apparent, I do have a point of view, and for that I will not apologise.
Well, that sums up my first post to the world of blogging, and I hope that all you pixels out there will perhaps give ‘thepixelplot’ a chance.
Over and Out.
