#Regram #RG @wsj : The number of fires in the Amazon region this year is more than double the 19,229 that burned during the same period last year. But as international leaders raise the alarm about the fate of the planet's most biodiverse forest, many Brazilians say the world is overreacting. Fueling the situation is a defiant president, outraged environmentalists and conspiracy theories over foreigners' plans to take control of the Amazon.

#Regram #RG @guardian : It might come as a surprise to northerners used to grey skies and drizzle, but demand for water could outstrip supply in parts of northern England by 2035 - partially because of the climate crisis. A new report warns that, in less than 20 years, Yorkshire and the Humber could experience water shortages because of significant reductions in rainfall, population increase and failures by water companies to reduce leakage. The Environment Agency has warned that England could run short of water within 25 years.

#Regram #RG @yaleenvironment360 As global temperatures continue to rise, 100-year floods could become annual occurrences in parts of the United States, according to new research published this week. The research, led by scientists at Princeton University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, examined flood risk for 171 counties along the U.S. East Coast and Gulf of Mexico. Historically, 100-year floods have been just that — an intense flooding event that happens once every 100 years, or has a 1 percent chance of happening in any given year. But scientists found that 100-year floods will become annual events in New England. In the U.S. Southeast and Gulf of Mexico, counties could experience such floods every 1 to 30 years.
#Regram #RG @brut nature: Good news! Seven eggs from the world’s last two remaining northern white rhinos have been successfully fertilized artificially. A big leap forward that may save these endangered animals. While Sudan, the world’s last male northern white rhinos, died last year, two female members of the species are still alive. Najin and Fatu (shown on this photo ) are Sudan’s daughter and grand-daughter.

#Regram #RG @chamiltonjames The real heroes of fires are of course the firefighters. In the Amazon they often work with nothing but machetes and leaf blowers and small tanks of fire suppressant. I worked with a troop of them in eastern Brazil back in 2017. It was tough hot and at times hopeless work. Some of them were Guajajara tribesmen who had dedicated their lives to protecting what was left of their ancestral forests - most had already been logged and burned. Some of them had been murdered for trying. It was brutal and tragic and we should all bow down to them for what they do - for so little money that they have to roll cigarettes with writing paper.
#Regram #RG @washingtonpost A beloved baby marine mammal in Thailand has died after consuming plastic and experiencing shock, Thai officials said Saturday. The young dugong, a relative of the manatee, was named Marium after marine biologists discovered her orphaned and lost in April in southern Thailand, the Associated Press reported. Soon, she captured hearts around the world as videos of her nuzzling up against caretakers circulated the Internet. Veterinarians found pieces of plastic blocking the young mammal’s intestines and said that Marium died of shock. Her intestines became inflamed, which caused gas in her digestive tract, an infection in her blood and pus in her lungs. The infection spread, causing shock, officials said in the announcement.

#Regram #RG @rainforesttrust Fires are a major issue for our rainforests and our planet. These fires are intensified by many factors, including the climate crisis and deforestation. Loss of habitat through illegal logging and development exacerbates the intensity and duration of these fires, helping to create situations like the one in the Brazilian Amazon today. . Wondering what you can do to help? . 1. Keep informed about the situation. Sites like Global Forest Watch Fires (http://fires.globalforestwatch.org/home/ ) provide valuable information about the fires going on right now. . 2. Share your passion for the rainforest with your friends. Educate others about this issue and why it is so important. . 3. Try changing your daily habits to be more environmentally friendly. Purchasing environmentally-friendly products and reducing or reusing paper is a great way to start!. . 4. If you can, make your voice for the environment heard in your local and national elections. . 5. Support organizations like Rainforest Trust. While we can't help stop these particular fires, our work to prevent deforestation helps stop fires like this from happening again. . . . . #amazonfires #amazon #rainforest #wildlife #nature #deforestation #saveacres
#Regram #RG @IamNickRose : Terrifying to think that the Amazon is the largest rain forest on the planet, creating 20% of the earth’s oxygen, basically the lungs of the world, has been on fire and burning for the last 16 days running, with literally NO media coverage whatsoever! Why?
#Regram #RG @motherjonesmag : Planting trees is good, but eliminating deforestation is better. Every year, an estimated 15 billion trees are chopped down across the planet to make room for agricultural and urban lands and other uses. We’ve cut down so many that what’s left is about half of the number of trees that the Earth supported before the rise of human civilization, and scientists warn that it’s not helping our climate. Planting more trees is one way to offset deforestation. But now, a report from the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change finds that to have a shot at combatting the climate crisis, we’ll need to cut down fewer trees. Global deforestation is a major source of greenhouse gas emissions. As a Mother Jones reporter explains: "The way we eat, farm, and cut down forests contributes in a major way to the climate problem. Deforestation, agriculture, and other land use are already responsible for 23 percent of the rise in human-caused greenhouse gases, and agriculture is responsible for 44 percent of methane emissions." “We cannot plant trees to get ourselves out of the problem that we’re in,” Pamela McElwee, a professor of human ecology at Rutgers University and an author on the report, said. “The trade-offs that would keep us below 1.5 degrees, we’re not talking about them. We’re not ready to confront them yet.” Click the link in @motherjonesmag bio to read more. (📸: Amazing Aerial/Zuma )

#Regram #RG @guardian : Ethiopians have planted about 350m trees in a single day as part of a national effort to tackle the climate crisis and deforestation. The aim is to grow 4bn new trees by getting every citizen to plant at least 40 seedlings over the summer. Public offices reportedly closed to enable civil servants to take part in the initiative, which broke India's record of most trees planted in a day (50m ). Ethiopia's forest coverage shrank from 35% in the 1900s to just 4% in the 2000s.
#Regram #RG @sealegacy : A young sea turtle drags a tangle of fishing nets and other debris through the open ocean off the coast of the Canary Islands. This is just one example of the danger that #plasticpollution poses to the health of marine wildlife. Seabirds and whales are found dead with their bellies full of #plastic. Coastal communities the world over are suffocated by plastic waste that comes from far-off shores.

Words from @kanielaing : “You don’t have to be Hawaiian to understand the dangerous precedent this sets. Mauna Kea impacts all of us. It’s an environmental struggle against wealthy developers who seek free reign. It’s a microcosm of what’s happening across Hawaii and the world: profiteers exploiting fragile places without regard for the future. We’re not concerned about how many passive dollars this will bring our economy. We are concerned about whether we will be able to breathe in 20 years, or be out of fresh water, or have any space left in our sacred places, or if the beaches we grew up in still be there. Some things are more important than a quick buck—like our planet’s and peoples’ survival.

#Regram #RG @cnnclimate : Environmentalists have removed more than 40 tons of plastic from the Pacific Ocean. And while that might seem like a lot — equivalent in weight to about 24 cars — it barely made a dent. Members of the Ocean Voyages Institute said the cleanup mission was the "largest and most successful ocean cleanup to date" in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Located between California and Hawaii, it is the biggest concentration of floating debris in the world. The crew removed trash including detergent bottles, plastic furniture and children's toys, and also collected fishing gear called "ghost nets" — massive nets of nylon or polypropylene that drift and accumulate plastic debris. “What we’ve done out there is small compared to the magnitude of the problem, but it’s scalable and can be spread,” said the founder of the group. It's estimated that 1.15 to 2.41 million tons of plastic enter the ocean each year. (📸: Ocean Voyages Institute )
