An Expedition Reveals Stunning Biological Wealth in a Bolivian Park That May Be Opened to Drilling

dotearth.blogs.nytimes.com — I focus a lot on hotspots for social or environmental troubles in the tropics, so it's worth stepping back once in awhile to point to areas where the great tapestry of life is still dizzyingly rich - at least for now.

Amid Chatter on Climate and Energy Views, a Look at Deeds

dotearth.blogs.nytimes.com — There is endless cogitation, here and elsewhere, over views on human-driven global warming and America's energy menu. Much of this, I'm afraid, is about as useful as watching " water sloshing in a shallow pan. " Lots of motion, no depth.

The U.S. Icebreaker Gap is About Arctic Needs, Not Chasing Russia

dotearth.blogs.nytimes.com — Way back in the Cold War, the United States fixated on a " missile gap" with the Soviet Union. You may remember this even devolved into a " mineshaft gap " in "Dr. Strangelove." These days, you're hearing more about an "icebreaker gap" facing the United States.

A Delicate Balance Is Undone in a Flash, and a Battered City Waits

nytimes.com — NEW ORLEANS, Sept. 3 - They waited, and they waited, and then they waited some more in the 90-degree heat, as many as 5,000 people huddled at a highway underpass on Interstate 10, waiting for buses that never arrived to take them away from the storm they could not escape.

Oil, Oligarchs and Other Subtexts on Obama’s Arctic-Focused Alaska Trip

dotearth.blogs.nytimes.com — The Arctic seems hot these days, and not just because of rising temperatures and retreating ice, or because President Obama plans to speak at an Arctic policy meeting and visit an Arctic community on an Alaska tour starting Monday.

The New York Times

dotearth.blogs.nytimes.com — One of the underlying assumptions of Dot Earth is that the human population will hit nine billion before peaking some time midcentury. There are some readers and population campaigners who question this kind of presumption and wish we could avoid that kind of growth, for obvious reasons.

Local Nets, Not Faraway Markets, Key to New Zealand’s Dolphin Decline

dotearth.blogs.nytimes.com — In my latest piece on how Chinese appetites for an endangered fish are indirectly driving Mexico's tiny porpoise, the vaquita, to extinction, I passingly mentioned the world's other deeply imperiled toothed whale - New Zealand's Maui's dolphin. This diminutive marine mammal is a subspecies of that country's Hector's dolphin.

On Walruses and Warming

dotearth.blogs.nytimes.com — The established icons of Arctic climate change are the polar bear and, to a lesser extent, those indigenous communities that are trying to maintain traditional ways in the face of slushy floes and the relentless erosion of coasts exposed to waves as sea ice retreats.
