The Netherlands is flood-prone and partially below sea level, but sophisticated water management has helped protect the country – and the U.S. could learn a few lessons.  

#Flood   #Water   #FloodManagement   #Dutch   #Netherlands  
One-half of the Netherlands is flood-prone and about one-quarter below sea level. And yet, more than 16 million people live well in an area the size of Connecticut.

Last year an algae bloom in Lake Erie contaminated drinking water for 500,000 Ohio residents, and with the bloom back this year it looks like this summer could be even worse.

The recovery of the lake will take time, but we have solutions.

Healthier soil practices can create a powerful antidote to Lake Erie’s bloom and doom cycle.

Will switching from diesel to natural gas fuel really benefit the climate?

#Methane   #NaturalGas   #Emissions   #HeavyDutyTrucks  
A wholesale switch from diesel to natural gas fuel without first addressing methane emissions means we could go from bad to worse.

Did we just hit a tipping point in the politics of climate change when President #Obama  announced the #CleanPowerPlan  last week?

#EPA   #Regulations   #PowerPlants   #RenewableEnergy   #Energy  
Politicians no longer risk facing anger for daring to act on climate change, but for ignoring it.

Even with a strong El Niño California can’t escape the hottest year on record and monster drought.

Sadly, the elk can’t speak and denying pollution won’t help our National Parks: http://bit.ly/1NcZbwX

Climate change solutions are about slowing the rate of global warming while limiting maximum warming—read more about why our best chance against climate change is tackling both CO2 and methane. 

#Methane   #CarbonDioxide   #Emissions   #GHG   #ClimateChange   #GlobalWarming  
We need a two-pronged strategy to stay safe from climate change. We must slow warming – while limiting maximum warming.
