Estratégia de Biodiversidade da UE para 2030 | EU Biodiversity Strategy for 2030

Com o Pacto Ecológico Europeu, pretendemos um modelo económico e de recuperação que dê ao nosso planeta mais do que retira dele. Proteger e regenerar a natureza através da Estratégia de Biodiversidade da UE será um passo essencial neste caminho.

What can Chernobyl teach us?

Thirty years ago this month, on 26 April 1986, Reactor 4 at the Soviet-run Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant exploded when operators undertook a safety experiment. The nuclear accident remains the worst to date, although debate and controversy surround the extent and types of damage incurred—from cancers to ecological impact to the effects of mass evacuations on communities and individuals.

The Tragedy of the Commons - Garrett Hardin

The Tragedy of the Commons
BY GARRETT HARDIN
SCIENCE13 DEC 1968 : 1243-1248

Abstract
The population problem has no technical solution; it requires a fundamental extension in morality.

What Shall We Maximize?

We want the maximum good per person; but what is good? To one person it is wilderness, to another it is ski lodges for thousands. To one it is estuaries to nourish ducks for hunters to shoot; to another it is factory land. Comparing one good with another is, we usually say, impossible because goods are incommensurable. Incommensurables cannot be compared.
