In latest demographic projections from UN, pretty amazing that Tokyo stays at top of megacities list until 2030. Overall, fascinating portrait of our fast-urbanizing planet - mostly for the better if we work at it. http://dotearth.blogs.nytimes.com/2014/07/10/in-u-n-population-update-tokyo-still-tops-list-of-megacities/
Despite Japan’s shrinking population, a new U.N. report on urbanization trends puts Tokyo at the top of the megacities list through 2030.

From comments on the Dot Earth post, most people are frustrated at the lack of action on problems caused by anthropogenic impacts. I sent you an email with an action plan, asking your help in getting this plan to some key people.

Pausing to recall primacy of personal sustainability. Three years ago at this moment I was in early stages of a stroke. Please remind yourself of what to look for in others: http://stroke.nih.gov/ Time wasted = brain lost. http://j.mp/dotstroke

"Indonesia has overtaken Brazil as the country with the world's highest amount of tropical deforestation. From 2000 to 2012, Indonesia lost 6 million hectares of primary forest, an area half the size of England. And Indonesia's rate of deforestation is increasing, with significant consequences for the country's greenhouse gas emissions and biodiversity...."

Story
Tagline
Which comes first, Peak Everything or Peak Us? I explore this question daily on http://j.mp/dotEARTH and at Pace Univ. The rest? Family, songs, friends, living.
Introduction
I explore the balance between human affairs and the environment for The New York Times at my blog, Dot Earth, and as the senior fellow for environmental understanding at Pace University's Academy for Applied Environmental Studies. In spare moments I write songs and perform in a rootsy twangy band, Uncle Wade.
Bragging rights
Been to the North Pole; sailed 2/3 of the way around the Earth (New Zealand to Italy); sung with Pete Seeger.
