"The polar bear is us," says Patricia Romero Lankao of the federally financed National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colo., referring to the first species to be listed as threatened by global warming due to melting sea ice. #Climate #climatechange  
If you think of climate change as a hazard for some far-off polar bears years from now, you're mistaken. That's the message from top climate scientists gathering in Japan this week to assess the impact of global warming. In fact, they will say, the ...

Journey through the ocean's twilight zone, where tiny marine creatures burn through tons of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide, and one moves from light into shadow. #Plankton #Ocean #CO2 #carboncycle #carbon #climate  
The twilight zone plays a prominent role in transferring the atmosphere's excess carbon dioxide (from fossil fuel burning) into deep ocean storage. Now, the scientists think they can finally balance the twilight zone's carbon checkbook.

'Great political clout' of energy industry trumps those in need of drinking #water. #watercrisis #fossilfuels

Over 42,000 turtles are legally killed each year, 80% of them green turtles (Chelonia mydas), a study suggests.

Ten countries account for more than 90% of the catch, with Papua New Guinea, Nicaragua and Australia taking almost three-quarters between them. Legal take of turtles is comparable to estimates of by-catch.

Widespread commercial catch of turtles has contributed significantly to their decline.

The first place to protect turtles was Bermuda, as early as 1620. Although 42,000 seems an enormous number now, in the 60s Mexico alone was catching over 380,000 a year. 

As well as 37,339 green turtles, an estimated 3456 hawksbill turtles, 1051 loggerhead turtles, 263 olive ridley and 62 leatherback turtles are taken each year.

She as many of you may have heard that on January 24. NOAA Fisheries proposed a rule to grant Lolita equal status with her family as a member of an endangered species, pending a 2-month comment period and up to a year before it is made final. The comment period - to help persuade NOAA Fisheries to not only follow through and grant Lolita's inclusion as a member of her family, but to allow her to return to her home - began January 27 and goes until March 28. (Via Orca Network)
