Travel & Nature

There are some indications that America may be experiencing a bit of a natural gas “boom” right now.  Last year the country produced 22.6 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, up 3.1 trillion from 2005.  Natural gas is seen as a better alternative to coal (which is used to generate half the country’s electricity) and is cheaper and more abundant than wind and solar.  In 2009 the U.S. recorded the lowest amount of emissions since 1995.  This is due in part to the lame economy, sure, but renewable energy and increased use of natural gas played a role as well.

When David Lobell, a Stanford University researcher, and Marianne Bänziger, of the International Maize and What Improvement Centre, in Mexico, began talking about the future effects of climate change on crops in Africa, Lobell didn’t anticipate for his pet project to come up in conversation.

Are you against whaling?  If so, then you will be happy to hear that anti-whaling activists are putting up a real fight over in Japan.  Recently, the Japanese ended its whaling season early, bringing all of the ships back to port due to “harassment” from environmental activists, such as Sea Shepherd.  Since Japan fisheries could no longer ensure the safety of the whalers, they were forced to end the season early.  Although the whaling has only ended for the season, this is a huge step in whale protection because it shows that activists are making whaling very difficult for places like Japan.

Evolution tends to be though of as something that occurs over thousands of generations. The tomcod defies this generalization and in only 50 years the fish has evolved a resistance to toxic chemicals that pollute its home in the Hudson River. Read more…

Recently, a friend of mine and his new bride traveled to Africa for their dream honeymoon.  In their preparation for their amazing trip, my friend looked into all kinds of adventure tours and activities that most people typically think of when they go to the African continent.  One question I asked him, which he admitted he had not considered, was if any of these adventures were sustainable?

Killer Plastic Bags

To my disappointment, I recently learned that less than one percent of plastic bags are recycled, since the cost of recycling one bag is greater than the cost of producing a new one. So what happens to all these plastic bags that aren’t recycled? Read more…

There seems to be this instinctive human compulsion to drain wetlands.  The Neanderthal probably looked upon prehistoric swamps and grunted amongst his peers about how to make the useless land dry.  The people of Russia recent learned the importance of wetlands the hard way.  Their peatlands were scorched by a summer so hot it defied modern precedent.  The peat-bog caught fire and engulfed Moscow in smog and carbon monoxide.  Russia’s daily death rate doubled to 700 people.

What’s been on people’s minds lately?  Well, dead animals certainly have- blackbirds in Arkansas, turtles in Italy, manatees off the Florida Coast…you name it.  In fact, these incidents have been the talk of green news as of late; three of Google’s top ten “Hot Searches” are related to the hundreds of dead birds that fell from the sky in Arkansas and Louisiana.  Is this simply a media-induced frenzy, a sign that our precious world is ending, or an environmental concern that needs to be addressed?  While substantial amounts of information are missing, there are still some essential things to take from this unique series of phenomena.

In 2008 scientists at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel used satellites to observe Saharan dust traverse the Atlantic and land in Brazil.  Significance?  Researchers believe the dust may be stimulating plant growth in the nearby Amazon by supplying the phosphorous that’s lacking.  Dust may sprinkle a similar type of magic on parts of the ocean short on iron, i.e. plankton blooms in nutrient-poor waters off the Gobi desert.

The deforestation situation in the Brazil Amazon Rainforest has always been very controversial.  Rainforests support some of the world’s most diverse ecosystems.  They create a beautiful and unique experience if you ever have the lucky chance to see one in person.  Fortunately, Brazilian President Lula recently announced that the Amazon deforestation rate has declined 14% from August 2009 to July 2010, the lowest rate recorded since 1988!  President Lula is proud to say that this new rate clearly displays Brazil’s commitment to decreasing their deforestation rates and reducing Brazil’s greenhouse gas emissions.
