Latin America's Risky Bet on Pricey Oil March 4, 2015 Christopher Sabatini Summary: 

Cheap oil is generating headaches for Latin American countries that bet on high prices. Here's how Brazil, Mexico, and Venezuela are managing the downturn. 

Falling global oil prices are wreaking havoc on Latin America far beyond the economic mess in Venezuela. True, the near-60-percent drop in the price of a barrel of oil since June 2014 has compounded Venezuela’s problems—hyperinflation and deteriorating finances—that resulted from decades of mismanagement. But other countries with more prudent economic policies, including Brazil and Mexico, are also feeling the pinch.

Throughout the small islands of the Pacific, China has been expanding its foreign aid program. In the last decade, nations from Samoa to Vanuatu have received hundreds of millions in funding. Chinese aid helps these countries build much-needed infrastructure, from the National Medical Centre in Samoa, to water pipes in the Cook Islands, to university dormitories in Goroka, Papua New Guinea.

At every point in the drama of Ferguson, Missouri, from the first protests to the final fires, Americans have argued about the character of the personalities involved. Was Michael Brown a thug or an ordinary kid? Was Darren Wilson a racist, or was he just trying to do his job? In each case, the hope was that you could justify your “side” with the right answer. If Brown was just a criminal, then his death wasn’t a tragedy, and the protests don’t mean anything. If Wilson is a racist, then the community is righteous, and their anger is just.

ISIS may have roots in climate change
2015-03-04 22:13:24 (52 minutes ago) 
Farmers ride in their tractor in the drought-hit region of Hasaka in northeastern Syria on June 17, 2010. Analysts often point to many factors that contributed to the rise of ISIS. Sunni frustration with the Shi'a-dominated central Iraqi government, the remnants of Al Qaeda in Arabia, and of course the disastrous US-led war just to name a few. But another factor may have played an early role in destabilizing Syria: We know the basic story in Syria by now: From 2006-2010, an unprecedented drought forced the country from a groundwater-intensive breadbasket of the region to a net food importer. Farmers abandoned their homes—school enrollment in some areas plummeted 80 percent—and flooded Syria’s cities, which were already struggling to sustain an influx of more than 1 million refugees from the conflict in neighboring Iraq. The Syrian government largely ignored these warning signs, helping sow discontent that ultimately spawned violent protests ... A preventable drought-triggered humanitarian crisis sparked the 2011 civil war, and eventually, ISIS.

A new study published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academies of Science provides the clearest evidence yet that human-induced global warming made that drought more likely. The study is the first to examine the drought-to-war narrative in quantitative detail in any country, ultimately linking it to climate change.
 

It's unfortunate that we in the US have senior policy-makers playing rhetorical games with snowballs as the world warms up and populations are displaced. But climate change denial isn't just bad science, it's bad business. And since our elected leaders increasingly take marching orders from corporate America instead of we the people, perhaps we can hope global energy companies and related firms, many of which are highly leveraged in the Middle East, will conclude that simply denying climate change is bad for their shareholders.

Would You Need a License To Drive a Self-Driving Car?

agent elevator writes Not as strange a question as it seems, writes Mark Harris at IEEE Spectrum : "Self-driving cars promise a future where you can watch television, sip cocktails, or snooze all the way home. But what happens when something goes wrong? Today's drivers have not been taught how to cope with runaway acceleration, unexpected braking, or a car that wants to steer into a wall." The California DMV is considering something that would be similar to requirements for robocar test-driver training." Hallie Siegel points out this article arguing that we need to be careful about how many rules we make for self-driving cars before they become common. Governments and lawmakers across the world are debating how to best regulate autonomous cars, both for testing, and for operation. Robocar expert Brad Templeton argues that that there is a danger that regulations might be drafted long before the shape of the first commercial deployments of the technology take place.

Zambia's Uncertain Future

Zambia is managing a boom in its copper mining industry and is on the verge of repaying its international debts. Political uncertainty following President Michael Sata's death, however, could unravel the country's progress.

Last January, Zambian President Edgar Lungu of the Patriotic Front (PF) party was elected to replace late President Michael Sata by a small margin of 28,000 votes over his opponent, United Party for National Development (UPND) leader Hakainde Hichilema. With only 32 percent of registered voters casting ballots for either candidate, and given that the victor will only hold office for 20 months, the election could be seen as insignificant.
