"A new study from researchers at Florida State University published this week in the journal Nature Geoscience has discovered there will be a substantial carbon impact resulting from the loss of glaciers and ice sheets that cover roughly 11 per cent of the Earth’s surface.

Glaciers act as sinks for both local and distant sources of carbon, CO₂ that is then released downstream if and when the ice melts or breaks away into the sea." #FloridaStateUniversity   #ClimateChange   #GlacierMelt   #GreenhouseGas

"While it’s worrisome the borer has moved on to the fringetree, what’s striking to Cipollini is that the move happened in many regions where a stable supply of ash trees remains. The Emerald borer appears to have identified Chionanthus virginicus as a food and spawning habitat while its preferred host is still available." #InvasiveSpecies   #AshTree   #EmeraldAshBorer

"Pipelines — from Enbridge’s long-opposed Northern Gateway in BC and Line 9 reversal in Ontario; to TransCanada’s Energy East, stretching some 4,400 kilometres from Alberta to refineries in Quebec and New Brunswick; to Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain project in Burnaby — have become stand-ins for Canadians’ larger concerns over the climate impacts of extracting, refining and exporting tar sands oil." #Pipelines   #Line9   #EnergyEast   #KinderMorgan   #TarSands   #climatechange

"The Brandon Road dam, listed on the National Register of Historic Places in March 2004, is being investigated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers as a suitable location to test run new deterrents for halting Asian carp and other aquatic nuisance species. In addition to the electric barriers already in place eight kilometres upstream from the Brandon Road project, the Corps hopes to evaluate the effectiveness of gates, air cannons and boat cleanses in repelling invasives." #AsianCarp   #InvasiveSpecies   #ArmyCorpsofEngineers

"In the years since the Greenbelt Plan was enacted by Dalton McGuinty in 2005, the expansion of commercial and residential development in the Golden Horseshoe has continued. Massive infrastructure projects, the lingering prospect of an airport in Pickering and the transfer of contaminated soil into the region remain real threats to the ecologically fragile Greenbelt lands." #Greenbelt   #Ontario

"If they’re already existing at the margins, 'no matter how tiny or minuscule the change is … it may lead to dramatic population collapse and extinction,' Botero said. 'That’s what we’ve called the ‘tipping point’ because things are really great up to one point and then you cross a boundary and things go to hell.'" #TippingPoint   #EndangeredSpecies

"On October 7, 2014, Randall E. Watters was arrested and charged in Calhoun County in the state’s southwest for the unlawful possession and sale of more than 1,800 pounds of Asian bighead and silver carp.

"The government wants to paint this as a fight between farmers and environmentalists, Leslie said, but it’s simply not true. 'It’s a false tension that’s created by the Conservatives because … it makes it more convenient if they can just steamroll through.'" #RougePark   #NDP   #ParksCanada
