Time to hike — tomorrow is National Trails Day

Time to hike — tomorrow is National Trails Day | GarryRogers Biosphere News | Scoop.it
Frisco resident Leigh Wadden hikes along a trail in the Eagles Nest Wilderness in the Gore Range, part of the White River National Forest in Colorado.
Garry Rogers's insight:

But please don't disturb the wildlife.  Now is the time to stand guard over wild habitats, not tromp through them.  Wild animals are struggling and dying.  Every bit of stress they must endure from our presence reduces their chances for reproduction and survival.  Visit wild habitats after we have reversed the great biodiversity decline.

Garry Rogers's insight:

GR:  We could choose to maintain intact ecosystems.  There are so many species threatened now that it's hard to decide where to spend efforts.  Wolves are a pretty good choice.  For them to flourish much will have to change in the ways that people live with the land.  To prevail on behalf of wolves will benefit many other species.  Let's go to West Yellowstone.

Global warming could spread US ragweed to UK, causing misery for hayfever sufferers

Climate change could help the invasive weed from north America, that triggers severe allergic reactions, become common across the UK by 2050, experts have warned Climate change could help a notorious invasive weed known to trigger severe allergy...
Garry Rogers's insight:

Over recent centuries, people have introduced many invasive species to North and South America.  New World invasive species are fewer, but there have been a few troublesome species introduced to the Old World.  One should note that most of the damage caused by invasive species is by replacing native species.  Whole ecosystems can collapse if too many natives are lost.

California looks to Australia for tips on surviving drought - US News

California looks to Australia for tips on surviving drought - US News | GarryRogers Biosphere News | Scoop.it
SYDNEY (AP) — California has turned to the world's driest inhabited continent for solutions to its longest and sharpest drought on record.

Australia, the land poet Dorothea Mackellar dubbed "a sunburnt country," suffered a torturous drought from the late 1990s through 2012. Now Californians are facing their own "Big Dry," and looking Down Under to see how they coped.
Garry Rogers's insight:

Now that corporations control the U.S. government, tough water-conservation regulations may be ineffective in California and other drought-stricken states.  Corporations seek short-term growth, not long-term stability.
