In light of this assault on an environmental policy that did its job, what can a despairing environmentalist do?
If low levels of insecticides, many of them endocrine disruptors, are involved, humans are certainly exposed as well
No matter how much carbon they assimilate, the carbon uptake by an existing mature forest is not additional,
Over a similar lifetime, electric vehicles emit about 10-24% less greenhouse warming potential than conventional vehicles
As seen for the metabolism of birds, air travel by humans carries a large energetic cost.

My Master’s Project looked to find what role carbon offsets play in promoting conservation in North Carolina.
However you feel about climate change, there is little doubt and much worry about the spread of ticks and Lyme disease northward.
