#Regram #RG @sealegacy:
Video by @justinhofman // Alaska. This particular glacier is beautiful, but it's also receding and thinning at a noticeable rate. Although it's not a scientific measurement, all of us guides are noticing dramatic changes in the glaciers of Southeast Alaska over the past few years. In many cases there literally is no science being done to measure the recession because funding is simply not available. What makes it extra difficult is that the people we are taking to these wild places are often seeing this for the first time and are in awe of the raw beauty and power of a glacier. That is the normal and appropriate reaction. But the guides, the ones who have spent years and decades learning and observing these places, see a completely different, alarming scene.

#Regram #RG @guardian: Today, with help from leading scientists and NGOs, we can expose the fossil fuel companies most responsible for perpetuating the climate crisis.
It's an investigation that's involved more than 20 Guardian journalists working across the world for the past six months. We hope it moves the focus of the debate from individual responsibilities to power structures and presses governments and corporations to close the gap between ambitious long-term promises and lacklustre short-term action.
The UN says the coming decade is crucial if the world is going to avoid the most catastrophic consequences of global heating. Reining in our dependence on fossil fuels and dramatically accelerating the transition to renewable energy has never been more urgent.

#Regram #RG @bbcnews: Typhoon Hagibis is the worst storm to hit Japan in decades. More than 110,000 people are taking part in search and rescue operations after the typhoon struck on Saturday. It has left at least 40 dead, with 16 missing and also caused the cancellation of three Rugby World Cup matches.

#Regram #RG @cnnclimate: A group representing tribal governments and commercial fishing organizations is suing the US Environmental Protection Agency over a proposed gold and copper mine in Alaska backed by the Trump administration, which overturned an Obama-era decision to stop the project over environmental concerns. Bristol Bay, the proposed site of the controversial mine, is a sensitive and pristine watershed that is home to one of the world’s last and largest wild salmon spawning areas.

#Regram #RG @yaleenvironment360: Scientists are reporting that more than 2.3 million animals have been killed by wildfires in Bolivia in recent months, including jaguars, pumas, and ocelots. The fires have burned more than 10 million acres of forest and grassland since August, devastating ecosystems including the Chiquitania tropical savanna and an old-growth forest reserve in the state of Santa Cruz. More than 36,000 fires have burned in Bolivia so far this year, driven largely by farmers clearing land for agricultural purposes.

A garbage truck's-worth of plastic ends up in the ocean every minute. That's an estimated 17.6 BILLION pounds of plastic leaking into the marine environment from land-based sources each year. . How do you reduce your use of plastics? From straws to bags to disposable razors, there are many single-use plastic products we can skip. But we need more plastic-free alternatives. .

In 2017, this beautiful animal—the Tapanuli Orangutan—became the first great ape species identified since the Bonobo in 1929.
Now, a mere two years later, the orangutan has joined a list of the world’s most imperiled primates, just published in a report, “Primates in Peril: The World’s 25 Most Endangered Primates: 2018-2020.”
With 43 percent of the world’s primates classified as Critically Endangered or Endangered by the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, the report is not just a warning, but a clear call for action, meant to spur conservation action and unlock support for the orangutan and 24 other species that made the list. @global_wildlife_conservation @bristolzoo

#Regram #RG @guardian: Today marks the start of a wave of protests led by environmental activist group @ExtinctionRebellion. Their goal is to “shut down” the heart of UK government with two weeks of disruptive protests.
Activists have been instructed to refuse bail when arrested, in the hope they can fill up all of the holding cells and prevent police from making more arrests.
In less than 12 months, Extinction Rebellion has become the fastest-growing environmental organisation in the world. “We have seen protest movements on climate change before, but they haven’t attracted anywhere near as many people or had as much impact,” said Clare Saunders, professor in environmental politics at Exeter University. “For the first time, you have ordinary people engaging with radical action. It’s unique – I can’t think of any [protest movement] historically happening in that way.” . . . . #ExtinctionRebellion #ClimateEmergency #ActNow #London #protests #climate #TrafalgarSquare #Whitehall #Westminster

Over the last month, more than 5.3 million hectares of Bolivian lands have gone up in flames, including some of the country’s most important places for biodiversity. These fires directly threaten the ability of Bolivia’s protected areas and other wild lands to provide clean drinking water, store carbon, harbor wildlife and preserve the culture and livelihoods of indigenous people. Around the world we need to implement economic policies that recognize and safeguard the value of biodiversity and that do not incentivize destructive agricultural practices, the driving force behind the fires across South America this year.

#Regram #RG @greenmatters:
Norway has taken a big step to help Gabon, a small nation in Central Africa, fight back against deforestation: Over the next 10 years, the country will spend $150 million to make sure the rainforest — which makes up much of Gabon — doesn’t need to succumb to economical pressures to either sell timber or clear the forest for development. ⁠ ⁠
Instead, Norway will spend $10 for every ton of carbon captured by the rainforest; though it’s likely less profitable than deforestation would be for the country, it helps protect the land that Gabon values. Norway has introduced similar programs of “performance-based forest payments” in countries like Indonesia and Brazil, but Gabon is unique in that the program can help save forests that are still standing — rather than just slowing down the process of deforestation. ⁠ ⁠
