The Amazon Rainforest Is On Fire and Barely Makes the News

By Jamie Lynn Morgan | August 23, 2019

The Amazon rainforest is an ecological marvel. It’s twice the size of India, according to the World Wildlife Fund, and it’s the largest remaining tropical rainforest in the world. It’s home to at least 10% of the world’s biodiversity, produces 20% of the world’s oxygen and helps regulate the temperature of the whole planet.

Of The World’s New Oil and Gas Production 61% Will Come From the US

By Jamie Lynn Morgan | August 23, 2019

The sheer scale of this new production dwarfs that of every other country in the world and would spell disaster for the world’s ambitions to curb climate change – the effects of which we’re already witnessing through massive heatwaves, flooding, and extreme weather.

July Was The Warmest Month on Record For The Globe

By Jamie Lynn Morgan | August 22, 2019

The global land and ocean surface temperature departure from average for July 2019 was the highest for the month of July, making it the warmest month overall in the 140-year NOAA global temperature dataset record, which dates back to 1880. The year-to-date temperature for 2019 tied with 2017 as the second warmest January–July on record. […]

EPA Is Eroding States’ Authority to Protect Waters from Unchecked Development

By Jamie Lynn Morgan | August 12, 2019

You should not dive into a pool before checking if it is filled with water. States should not make a CWA §401 permit granting decision before they have all of the relevant facts. The EPA disagrees. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently released a guidance document outlining certain Clean Water Act (CWA) timelines and requirements […]

US Forest Service Plans to Limit the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) Process

By Jamie Lynn Morgan | August 7, 2019

Almost anytime there’s a chance for you to weigh in with land managers about an important decision—from trying to fight off mining in the headwaters of the Boundary Waters to the creation of a new management plan for your local National Forest—that opportunity exists because of a law called the National Environmental Policy Act, or […]

Humanity’s Ecological Footprint contracted between 2014-2016

By Jamie Lynn Morgan | July 29, 2019

The 2019 edition of the National Footprint and Biocapacity Accounts tracks the Ecological Footprint and biocapacity of all countries, using U.N. data, from 1961 to 2016. This is two years further than last year’s edition since U.N. data is becoming available more rapidly. One finding is that humanity’s carbon Footprint dropped 1.4 percent between 2014 […]

Cyanobacteria Bloom on Fernan Lake July 2019

By Jamie Lynn Morgan | July 29, 2019

Fernan Lake Health Advisory Fernan Lake is experiencing cyanobacteria bloom dominated by Gloeotrichia sp. and Woronichinia sp. that has had consistent scum formation at the east side boat ramp (opposite end of the lake from Fernan Village).  These scums should be avoided. The rest of the lake hasvisible cyanobacterial colonies that the lab identified as […]

Ex-BLM Chiefs Say Interior Moving to Transfer Land to States

By Jamie Lynn Morgan | July 25, 2019

Two former Bureau of Land Management directors say plans to move the agency’s headquarters to Colorado are an early step toward abolishing the entire agency and transferring millions of acres of federal land to the states. “I think the endgame is to try to make it almost impossible to manage these public lands,” said former […]

Sometimes It is Better Not to Collaborate

By Jamie Lynn Morgan | July 25, 2019

Too often, these environmental organizations have been captured or compromised by those whose intent is for greater access to public lands and greater resource exploitation thereof. They participate, they argue, because without their input the results would be more skewed and biased toward resource extraction.  But in my experience, the best outcome we see is […]

Need to Plant 1.2 Trillion Trees

By Jamie Lynn Morgan | July 25, 2019

An ambitious ecologist thinks he may have discovered the secret to neutralizing CO2 emissions on planet Earth. According to his findings, we need to start planting more trees — 1.2 trillion, to be exact. Considering how serious of a problem climate change is right now, it would be pretty awesome if something as straightforward as planting trees could […]
