As the prospect of catastrophic effects from climate change becomes increasingly likely, a search is on for innovative ways to reduce the risks. One potentially powerful and low-cost strategy is to recognize and protect natural carbon sinks – places and processes that store carbon, keeping it out of Earth’s atmosphere.
Sfuso Scudo Bullone di Ancoraggio M8 M12 da 60mm Lunghezza Yzp Confezione 50 and Shadow Pink Flower Pillow Sham by Roostery can capture and store large quantities of carbon. These ecosystems are included in climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies that 28 countries have pledged to adopt to fulfill the Paris Climate Agreement. So far, however, no such policy has been created to protect carbon storage in the…

Biologists estimate the overall Wyoming wolf population at 286 this year, which is down 61 animals from a year ago.
The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports that’s the fewest wolves counted in the state since the Wyoming Game and Fish Department took over management and initiated wolf hunting seven years ago.

With fewer wolves, documented conflicts between wolves and domestic animals fell off last calendar year.
Climate change is real and it’s already impacting humans. Mike Berardino, IndyStar
Climate change is real and increasingly a part of our daily lives. New research and studies out in just the past six months highlight the latest facts about the human-caused shift to our global weather systems and its effects on our planet.
First among them, there’s no longer any question that rising temperatures and increasingly chaotic weather are the work of humanity. There’s a SIERRA eléctrica motosierra 21500 Vatio BARRA 40 CM MOGATEC KSE 2150 luzSignature Design by Ashley Q751003K King Duvet Set, a February study reported. That means we’ve reached the “gold standard” for certainty, a statistical measure typically used in particle physics.
The mechanism is well understood, and has been for decades. Humans burn fossil fuels such as oil, coal…

SEATTLE — Erika Lundahl writes and performs her own songs. She works in Seattle for a company that publishes books on the environment. She thinks a lot about how best to occupy her place in the world. Yet, despite this full life, Lundahl, at 27, feels a clock ticking.
Her biological clock, yes, but also the one to fix global warming, or face the likelihood that she and her potential children will have to live in a seriously marginalized world.
“There is this sense that if you don’t have kids soon, you could be putting them in a harder position,” Lundahl said. “But if you do have them, that will not be easy either, with the storms, the intense droughts, the…
