Without naming him, several hundred of the nation’s leading scientists press Donald Trump to take climate change, and climate diplomacy, seriously.

Two very important Arctic sea ice studies mostly hiding behind headlines: Arctic Summer Sea Ice – Going Down, Down, Down
The minimum extent of sea ice on the Arctic Ocean in 2016 was reached this week and tied 2007 for the second lowest since satellite measurements began in 1979 — with 2012 still in the top spot.Credit National Snow and Ice Data Center

I do love this and hope you'll pass it around: How Digital Tracking of Rogue Fishing Can Safeguard Vast Ocean Reserves http://nyti.ms/2cddeZ4
~~
The capacity to use digital tools to rein in illegal fishing in distant oceans got an enormous boost this morning, just ahead of the big international Our Ocean conference in Washington hosted by Secretary of State John Kerry.
Three partners meshing data-mining and conservation skills — Oceana, Skytruth and Google — launched a new public web platform, Global Fishing Watch. Anyone with an interest in bringing transparency and order to fishing or the seafood trade can go online to sift data and help identify both bad and good behavior.
The main focus at the State Department conference today wasPresident Obama’s announcement of a new set of marine protected ocean areas by the United States and more than 20 other nations. Altogether, a White House statement said, “The nations of the world have protected more than 900,000 square miles of ocean in 2016, exceeding last year’s record of more than 730,000 square miles.”
This is a marvelous step, but how can the many smaller nations establishing such areas possibly safeguard them? That’s where Global Fishing Watch comes in. The platform was described at the meeting by Leonardo DiCaprio, whose foundation is its main backer.
This system vastly expands the capacity to turn “paper parks” into truly protected zones, said Jackie Savitz of Oceana, who gave me an virtual tour of the technology that you can watch and listen to here:READ MORE…
In 2015, a Taiwanese-owned fishing vessel agreed to pay $2 million in fines and fees after the Global Fishing Watch system identified fishing patterns (the knotty track) in its movements in a marine protected area in the Republic of Kiribati.Credit Globalfishingwatch.org

My #Anthropocene journey has confronted me with so many different versions of the human experience-- all essentially unfolding simultaneously.
Here are two. Nairobi's Mathare slum https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gJqQn0owexc Singapore's museum of climate zones (truly) - the Gardens by the Bay complex. https://youtu.be/9OMIPtxj3OE How's your Anthropocene?

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.
