Dr. Stachel experienced a blackout on her very first day of duty. “I remember thinking…I am literally and figuratively powerless here,” she said. “I cannot do life-saving maneuvers if I can’t even see patients. To be in an operating room when the lights go out, that was the scariest thing in the world to me, realizing that a body is open and there is no light to see what there is to do next. If I hadn’t had my flashlight, I don’t know how they would have finished the surgery.” +Planet Experts  #WeCareSolar   #maternalmortality   #childbirth   #nigeria

Make no mistake, the price of gas did go up. In fact, it suffered the largest daily increase since April 13. It went up two cents.

"We, as environmentalists, have erred sometimes. The problem is, we believe so strongly that saving nature is a no-brainer. It’s a moral imperative. We have to do it, and we owe our kids and our grandkids ecosystems as healthy as the ones we’ve enjoyed. We believe these things so strongly that sometimes we’re not the best communicators... So I think we’ve created some divisiveness."

If you had a detailed enough map, you could find Agbogbloshie on the banks of the Korle Lagoon, just outside of Accra, Ghana’s capital city. Its four acres contain an estimated population of 40,000 men, women and children living in shacks built from scrap metal. It is the world’s largest dumpsite for electronic waste.

“This isn’t a projection of 100 years in the future,” adds Diffenbaugh. “This is an event that is more extreme than any in the observed record, and our research suggests that global warming is playing a role right now."
