What 'Game of Thrones' Can Teach Food Companies About Fighting Obesity Hank Cardello

For fans of HBO’s Game of Thrones, perhaps the biggest thrill of Season 8 is seeing fiercely rival families and religions join forces to finally defeat the White Walkers, a zombie army that grows by killing off the living. No less collaboration will be needed to fight one of our greatest public health crises today: obesity, which is putting 93 million US adults at increased risk of premature death.

In short, we need every sector of the food and beverage industry – from packaged food and restaurant companies to beverage makers and convenience store operators – to join the fight. And we especially need the biggest companies in those sectors to engage seriously, because they can make the biggest impact.

Unfortunately, two big players – the restaurant and baked goods sectors – remain missing in action, apparently too focused on their own ambitions. Meanwhile, in a very satisfying plot twist, the convenience store industry has emerged as the obesity wars’ Jaime Lannister: the rogue character who shows more and more moments of profound nobility and emerges an unlikely hero.

Over the nearly 100 years since the first convenience store opened in Dallas, this channel has gained a ...

¿Qué países latinoamericanos están mejor preparados para enfrentar el cambio climático?

La reducción de las emisiones mundiales de gases de efecto invernadero es fundamental para manejar los riesgos del cambio climático en todos los rincones del mundo. Sin embargo, incluso si podemos limitar el calentamiento global a 2 °C, el clima seguirá cambiando, afectando tanto a las empresas como a las comunidades de América Latina.

A menudo, la meta de 2 °C para el calentamiento global no se comprende correctamente. Hay una tendencia a pensar que es un límite científico que delimita perfectamente los niveles "seguros" y "peligrosos" del cambio climático. Pero no es así.

En cambio, es una línea trazada por los políticos en 2010 en un intento pragmático de lograr un equilibrio que evite los cambios climáticos más graves asociados con mayores niveles de calentamiento, mientras se reconoce que mantener el calentamiento global en menos de 2 °C sería políticamente casi imposible.

Pero, no nos confundamos, el calentamiento global de 2 °C seguirá afectando seriamente a las empresas y comunidad...

Offshore drilling is the unenviable canary in the coal mine

OPINION // CHRIS TOMLINSON

No one wants to be the canary in the coal mine.

Sacrificing yourself to warn others may sound noble, but most of us would prefer to escape impending death. Economics are uncompromising, though, and when it comes to oil and gas, offshore drillers will be first to go if the peak demand hypothesis proves correct.

Fifteen years ago, deepwater drilling was supposed to quench the world’s endless thirst for oil. Liquid fossil fuels monopolized the transportation sector, and alternatives existed only in research labs and environmentalists’ imaginations.

Onshore sources of oil also appeared to be dwindling in 2003, giving deepwater and even ultra-deepwater wells a bright future. The infrastructure may have cost tens of billions of dollars, but operators promised investors substantial daily volumes of crude that would flow for decades.

The math made even more sense in 2008 when Goldman Sachs predicted oil could soon reach $200 a barrel. That led service providers at the Offshore Technology Conference in 2014 to tout equipment that could withstand extreme pressures and temperatures in ultra-deep wells drilled in ultra-deepwater.

Many executives thought industry competition would center on technology, not cost. A single deepwater...

Climate Change and the Arctic

The global climate is changing. The impacts of climate change are being observed earlier in the Arctic, and with more immediate and severe consequences, than in most of the rest of the world. The Arctic is warming at a rate almost twice the global average and reductions in Arctic sea-ice and permafrost and changes in weather are increasingly visible. Arctic marine mammals are uniquely adapted to life in the Arctic. Many rely on the seasonal presence of sea-ice, and all depend on the unique ecosystems and immense biological productivity of the region. Both of these factors are influenced by changing climatic conditions.

The Marine Mammal Commission seeks to increase scientific understanding of the impacts of environmental changes to marine mammals by working with and bringing together experts to discuss what the latest science shows. The Commission engages with other agencies on policy and management actions, such as assessing the conservation status of species through Endangered Species Act (ESA) listings (e.g., of polar bears, ice seals, and walruses) related t...

5 ways that climate change affects the ocean
 

For an ecosystem that covers 70 percent of the planet, oceans get no respect.

All they’ve done is feed us, provide most of the oxygen we breathe, and protect us from ourselves: Were it not for the oceans, climate change would have already made Earth uninhabitable.

How?

The oceans have gamely absorbed more than 90 percent of the warming created by humans since the 1970s, a 2016 report found. Had that heat gone into the atmosphere, global average temperatures would have jumped by almost 56 degrees Celsius (100 degrees Fahrenheit).

But as v...
