POOP WARS

Wildlife Rehabilitator War Wounds

10,000 Birds

Injured wildlife are not the most cooperative of patients. Most of them think we’re trying to eat them, not help them. Frightened and defensive, they react accordingly. Wildlife rehabilitators have an arsenal of equipment and techniques we use to protect ourselves. Gloves (some lined with Kevlar), goggles, facemasks, helmets, body padding, nets, poles … the list goes on.

Posted by Thomas Lyon to the RESECON listserv: I suspect most of you are aware that Donald Trump has selected Myron Ebell from the Competitive Enterprise Institute (and prominent climate skeptic) to head up the EPA Transition team (and potentially become EPA Administrator).   This petition to block that move requires 96,000 signatures within a month, so please disseminate to your networks.    This move is so blatant, that a strong and immediate response is warranted.

War on Nature

Green (Living) Review

Nectar Wars of Tandayapa

This is the story of the nectar wars from Tandayapa Lodge in north-west Ecuador. Few living things are created perfect. But I think hummingbirds are as close to evolutionary perfection as one can get. These enchanting nectar feeders have truly mastered the art of flight like no other bird. A high metabolism and the ability to rotate their wings through 180 degrees enables these little gems to fly forward, backward and pretty much everything in between.

The "war on coal" continues

Environmental Economics

David J. Hayes and James H. Stock: CONGRESS long ago established a basic principle governing the extraction of coal from public lands by private companies: American taxpayers should be paid fair value for it. They own the coal, after all. Lawmakers set a royalty payment of 12.5 percent of the sale price of the coal in 1976. Forty years later, those payments remain stuck there, with actual collections often much less.
