Warmer and wetter weather is good for tree diseases, which is bad news for trees
Climate change is likely to wreak havoc on California’s forests. Extreme weather, wildfires and insect outbreaks will all take a toll. Add to those another looming threat: disease. Forest diseases like Sudden Oak Death, which has infected trees in 14 counties in the state, stand to benefit from the effects of climate change, to the detriment, obviously, of the trees.

As their home is destroyed by an evil spirit, these two forest dwellers are left with a burning memory of what they once had. I really love the outcome of this. I started working on it 3 days ago and spent about 3 hours per day.

HOUSTON -- Agriculture officials say losses from Texas' historic drought are more than $2 billion more than previously thought. The Texas AgriLife Extension Service now estimates crop and livestock losses at $7.62 billion for 2011.
It's a brittle border for a YA novelist to find art that conceptualizes the world he/she is creating. SnowSkadi has great visual flair in designing djinni like characters, which appeal to me do to their alien-like play of the elements. Yet, the trick is to make them accessible enough for the young audience of Ælemental.
These are the stories that are never mentioned as the greats of modern fantasy, in spite of often surpassing the quality of their contemporaries.
