MOST RECENT

The aye ages of Madagascar were recently linked to monkeys from other parts of Africa like Kenya! 🐵🙈🙉🙊
It was this recent mandible analysis and comparison that is bringing to question the previous hypothesis that all lemurs originated in Madagascar.

The oil and gas industry is pumping out huge volumes of fracked oil but even more of the salty and potentially toxic wastewater that also comes out of the ground. Due to the geologic nature of shale formations, drillers can't pump this wastewater back into them after the shale is fracked and has produced oil and gas. Instead, they transport it to areas where injection wells can be drilled into porous rock and the wastewater can be pumped down and stored. Those injection wells can be either deep or shallow.
The rise of the fracking industry in the central U.S., especially Oklahoma, has coincided with a rise in earthquake activity, which is linked to deep injection wells. But not all fracking areas see the same level of human-caused earthquakes. This raises an obvious question: If Oklahoma's earthquake activity shot up as the state's oil and gas industry began injecting fracking wastewater into deep wells, then why not use shallower wells?
Unfortunately, shallow wastewater disposal wells come with their own suite of potential problems. Topping that list is the risk of contaminating freshwater aquifers as wastewater is pumped at high pressure underground, where that pressure can be released through faults, fractures, and improperly plugged oil and gas wells. The fracking industry is producing record amounts of oil, gas, and wastewater, meaning this problem of wastewater disposal isn't going away soon.

Throughout the Christmas Island trip, the only way to get around and complete all our research was thanks to the amazing support of locals and the Parks Australia team. The set up required a drilling rig and air set up running from the boat above our divers, and many quick scuba tank changeovers during our hours on the boat! Not a bad place to work!

The eleventh Green Events and Innovations Conference #GEI11 will take place just two weeks before the Brexit deadline in March 2019.
Each year, the GEI sees the gathering of great minds, and good friends, from Europe and beyond, with a shared passion for protecting the environment, for protecting human rights, and striving for equality. We know that much of the UK’s environmental law, for instance, stems from and is under the jurisdiction of the EU, and any proposed "green watchdog" for the UK is going to need some pretty big and very sharp teeth. We need to be focused as an international community to ensure that the environment, the natural world, and human beings, remain (or are better-) protected through these times of turbulence and upheaval, bolstering our strong bonds and networks that cannot and will not be shaken by political forces. National borders cannot stop the wind.
At last year’s GEI, Amy Mount of the Green Alliance shared with us the impact of Brexit upon environmental legislation and its potential implications. Watch Amy in action here. http://ow.ly/RagH50jJIIv

The Atlantic sturgeon (Acipenser oxyrinchus oxyrinchus) is considered threatened, endangered, and even locally extinct in many of its original habitats. Once found throughout North America, it has declined in numbers due to overfishing and water pollution.
What makes the Atlantic sturgeon unique? Unlike most fish, which have scales, the sturgeon has rows of scale-like bony plates like ‘scutes’.

This book is *everything.* It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the science, the headlines, and the lack of action from governments and big corporations. And because of this, it’s natural to assume your individual actions are a drop in the bucket. BUT THEY MATTER. It’s why we started #cre8changenow and it’s so clearly articulated in this optimistic approach to climate change and how to *be* the change to *spark* the change.

#Science in the #Arctic calls for a pretty serious ship 🚢. Introducing the #CCGSAmundsen, a class-3 icebreaker. This hulk is basically a moving laboratory 🔬 with all sorts of oceanographic, hydrographic and atmospheric sensors. It supports hundreds of research projects annually, and spends the whole summer conducting offshore operations in the #Canadian Arctic #ocean. There's even an espresso maker and wine 🍷 and cheese 🧀 night on Sundays! .

After coring the coral, we have to carefully pull the skeleton coral pieces out of the colony. Sometimes it all goes perfectly like here, where Jennie and Oscar are pulling out a beautiful 40cm piece of coral. When we have the entire coral length it is possible to piece everything back together and reconstruct a continuous climate record. After we extract the entire core the hole is then patched up so that the coral can grow back over and continue its life! Soon you will not be able to tell where the hole is. .
