  1. Chesapeake waters are warming, study finds, posing challenges to healing bayRead the original story w/Photo

    8 hrs ago | The Baltimore Sun

    The Chesapeake Bay's waters are warming, in some places more rapidly than the region's air temperatures, researchers from the University of Maryland say. If unchecked, scientists say, the trend could complicate costly, long-running efforts to restore the ailing estuary, worsen fish-suffocating dead zones and alter the food web on which the bay's fish and crabs depend.

    One of the key technologies that could help wean the globe off fossil fuel is probably at your fingertips or in your pocket right now: the battery. If batteries can get better, cheaper and store more power safely, then electric cars and solar- or wind- powered homes become more viable - even on cloudy days or when the wind isn't blowing.

  5. Mysterious Siberian craters may have an underwater analogue, scientists sayRead the original story w/Photo

    9 hrs ago | Anchorage Daily News

    A recent scientific paper may have just cast new light on mysterious happenings on the Yamal Peninsula in Siberia, where the appearance of numerous large craters in the permafrost has been attributed, at least by some, to the venting of large pockets of methane gas, possibly in a dramatic or sudden way. Now, say Pavel Serov and colleagues from the Centre for Arctic Gas Hydrate, Environment, and Climate at the Arctic University of Norway, possibly related structures appear to exist offshore as well, embedded within the shallow continental shelf of the South Kara Sea.


  6. Scientists: Gray Wolf still needs protection in Great LakesRead the original story w/Photo

    10 hrs ago | WISN-TV

    Gray wolves in the western Great Lakes region should not yet be removed from the federal endangered species list, a group of scientists and scholars said Tuesday, disagreeing with colleagues who said the population has rebounded sufficiently. Lifting government protection from wolves in Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin could be justified if and when the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service "uses the best available science that justifies delisting," 29 scientists from the U.S. and several other nations said in an open letter.

    They are the ultimate symbols of longevity and permanence, but it seems that in the face of climate change, even the mountains cannot weather the storm. A new study has shown that erosion caused by the cycling of ice ages - and in particular the grinding action of glaciers - can wear down mountains far faster than plate tectonics can build them up.
