Tribune Op-ed: What's more conservative than reverence for the Earth? 23.4.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Earlier in February, the Senate confirmed Scott Pruitt to head the EPA on a largely party line vote. Both Utah senators, Orrin Hatch and Mike Lee, voted for his confirmation. Conventional political wisdom suggests this was unsurprising. But should it be? Many Republicans, like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Lindsay Graham, Hank Paulson and several Republican House members, including Utah’s Mia Love, publicly support taking action on climate change. But more need to take up the mantle. In our increasing...

Prep baseball: BYU commit Ryan Brady a perfect fit as Park City's ace 23.4.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Transplanting a teenager from Southern California to Utah, with the climate change and challenge of finding a new set of friends, can be fraught with peril. But Ryan Brady had some things going for him when his family moved to Park City almost three years ago. For one, Brady already had a familiarity with the region and a love of the area’s favorite pasttime — skiing. Another asset when it came time to integrate with his new teammates on the Park City baseball team was a couple of really wicked ... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Cracks in Greenland ice-sheet may link up and break off 22.4.2017 Daily Kos
Welcome to our Saturday line-up fellow progressives and curious lurkers! We’re kicking off a climate and environment blogathon under the ClimateActionHub page. There will be lots more talented, passionate writers contributing including the always awesome MeteorBlades , popular diarists like BÉSAME , Bill McKibben, and many others.  First up, bad news, a large crack has already opened up early in the spring in one of Greenland’s vast ice sheets , causing concern among cryo-scientists. The ice sheet faces almost due north and stands between the open Arctic Ocean and the Petermann Glacier, a vast slowly flowing river of ice fed by ice and snow falling further inland on the frozen region : The NASA pictures make clear that a significant new rift has opened near the center of the glacier’s floating ice shelf — an unusual location that raises questions about how it formed. Moreover, this crack is not so distant from another much wider and longer crack that has been slowly extending toward the shelf’s center ...

This Earth Day, join the Global March for Science 22.4.2017 Boing Boing
All over the world , people who believe in science, facts, and reality are marching for action on climate change, against a backdrop of overt (Trump) and insidious ( Trudeau ) climate-change denial, which puts the future of our species and its habitat in grave peril. As I write this at 6AM on the west coast, they're already marching in Australia, New Zealand, the Philippines, and Europe. Soon, they will be in the streets in America. It's a key moment. The urgent questions of our day -- economic justice, gender inequality, racial injustice, discrimination on the basis of sexuality -- are all in play. A planet that is flooding and boiling is a planet where authoritarian strongmen can push aside these questions, barking "lifeboat rules!" and insisting that in a crisis, obedience must be swift and total, and that the captain of the lifeboat gets to decide what is and isn't a pressing concern. Get out there. Here's a directory of 600 global marches . Here's an excellent 3-minute video on protecting your ...
