Once upon a time, there was an inmutable “world order” based in two superpowers, the United States of America and the Soviet Union. But the unthinkable happened. One of the superpowers collapsed, “the order” crumbled, and United States became the only superpower in Earth. The USSR disappeared in 1991 but when the Andrei Amalrik's book –“Will the Soviet Union Survive Until 1984?” – was published, in 1970, the question was almost incredible, unthinkable. If in 2020, we demand...

All kind of trees, and forests, cover yet a significant surface of the lands of the planet Earth. Currently remain an estimated 40 million square kilometers or a 31% percentage. Since millions of years they had been a key part of life in Earth, and a basic resource for human life and civilizations. Trees and forests play a central role in the terrestrial ecosystem, like in the oxygen, water, carbon, and soil cycles in the planet. Their importance is even greater in the current climate...

The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has forced things in a way that a lot of human activities have gone virtual. Key activities like the work, education, commerce or health care are going virtual due to imposed isolation by the quarantines. The reduced mobility is being compensated by an exponential growth of telecommunications-based activities. In this way, the resilience shown by the digital networks, mainly the internet, has limited the brutal negative impact of the pandemic. The combined action...

In the internet age, a planetary networked consensus created our common response to coronavirus pandemic, but at same time showed the scope of the 'anti-science bias,' or science denialism – not just a simple matter of ignorance or logic – notoriously in the United States. For first time in human history, a majority of world population has been in a global lockdown for months to control the outbreak and avoid the breaking of health system. At the moment, the worst has been avoided globally...

“There is a single species that is responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic - us.” This is the overwhelming, devastating and clear conclusion of leading global experts on biodiversity and ecosystem from IPBES (Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services) that advises the United Nations. Last year, they made the most comprehensive planetary health check ever undertaken: around 1 million species already face extinction, many within decades, unless action is...

“The cosmos is within us. We are made of star-stuff. We are a way for the universe to know itself,” powerfully stated Carl Sagan. In this 'way,' our brain is the most complex, fascinating and mysterious component. But underway is a paradigm shift in the understanding of human brain function in everyday life: the "theory of predictive brain is as important to brain science as evolution is to biology." The question remains of how does the brain make sense of the world? or how does...

Yesterday marked 50 years of Earth Day, a response to our environment in crisis. Today, as yesterday, Earth is our home. As all astronauts experience from their overview in outer space, all is connected in our living planet. For first time in human history, billions of us have been in a lockdown of a planetary scale. The coronavirus pandemic warns us that we need respect the natural world of which we are part. Human species can't continue to ignore the links between infectious diseases and the...
