  5. Polar bears face steep decline because of melting sea ice: studyRead the original story w/Photo

    Friday Jul 3 | Daily Times

    Imperiled polar bears will see a population crash in most parts of the Arctic Ocean if global greenhouse gas emissions continue at current rates, causing accelerated melting of the sea ice the bruins depend on for survival, US scientists said on Wednesday, Zee News reports. A study led by US Geological Survey biologists showed that a worldwide failure to reduce the release of atmospheric pollutants tied to the burning of fossil fuels will likely lead to "a greatly decreased state" for polar bear populations in Alaska and elsewhere, except for an Arctic region north of Canada where summer ice is known to persist longer.

    Friday Jul 3 | Black Country Bugle

    HERE at the Black Country Bugle we deal with stories about things that are old, that have made history, of people and places, of events, industry, and the geology that constructed the Dark Region back in the mists of time, and there is one place that deserves more attention than most when it comes to discussing the nuts and bolts of what built our back yard and that's the Wrens Nest in Dudley. To some folk, talking about the Wrens Nest is old hat, but to a first time visitor, especially during the summer months, it's like stepping into the Garden of Eden, a swathe of meadows full of the finest wild flowers, bordered by mountains of limestone that reach back over 400 million years.
