Reese Halter

Antarctica Is Undergoing An Extraordinary Melt. Article by Reese Halter. Like a snowball released from the top of the mountain, gaining momentum as it descends, Earth’s record-breaking heat is melting Antarctica at a stunning rate. The area of sea ice surrounding Antarctica is the lowest since the inception of continuous record keeping began in 1979, and it’s still tumbling. In May, 2016, the massive West Antarctic ice sheet began tearing apart. Article >>

Big Trees Link Land To Ocean. Article by Reese Halter. Decomposition of trees represents a vital link in ensuring life for streams, rivers and oceans. In fact, the remarkable relationship between the land, its fresh waterways and tidal estuaries along the West Coast of North America depends upon a constant source of big, dead trees. Article >>

Chemical Chaos In The Ocean: The Death Of Dolphins And Sea Turtles. Article by Reese Halter. Dolphins and sea turtles are in dire jeopardy. Necropsies, or autopsies performed on animals, show that as poisons are brimming in the oceans, animal deaths are piling up. Article >>

Fighting For Our Forests. Article by Reese Halter. The world's forests are the lifeblood of Earth, yet their future is threatened. About 10,000 years ago, 50 per cent of the Earth’s land surface was forested. Today, a little over 30 per cent is covered with forests, and a lot of that decline is due to humans. Trees and forests are the lifeblood of the planet and they are in trouble, globally, and therefore so are we. Article >>

The Humble Honeybee. Article by Reese Halter. Honeybees are incomparable little creatures. Not only do bees pollinate 75 percent of all the world’s food crops, but also all the cotton we wear. Honeybees produce an astounding 2.6 billion pounds of honey each year for humans. Honeybees and humans share many things: we socialize, dance, touch, feel, mimic one another, sleep, enjoy nicotine, caffeine, even vote, and we both get sick. Article >>

Saving the Remaining Old Growth Redwood Forests. Article by Reese Halter. The tallest living tree on planet Earth is a coastal redwood at 379.3 feet, called Hyperion. That’s twice the size of the Statue of Liberty or the equivalent of a 38-story skyscraper. That tree was probably born at the time Jesus Christ walked the Earth. It carries well over 1 billion needles, enough to cover an entire football field. Article >>

Strawless in America, Ban Them All. Article by Reese Halter. Plastic straws injure and kill untold numbers of sea birds and many other forms of sea life each year. Americans consume hundreds of millions of petroleum-based plastic straws daily. That amounts to an unfathomable number of plastic straws per year. A global plastic straw ban is needed. Article >>

Toxic Tar Sands Cooking Our Planet. Article by Reese Halter. On February 24, 2018, the mercury at the Cape Morris Jesup weather station, northern Greenland, soared to 43 degrees (F), 70 degrees above normal – unprecedented. During that month, temperatures in northern Greenland were above freezing for 61 hours, three times the number of hours in any previous year. Terrifying. Article >>

Trees, Bees and Global Warming. Article by Reese Halter. It is heart-breaking that wild forests around the globe are now becoming sources of CO2 – emitting the main greenhouse, temperature-trapping gas on Earth. It’s not just the forests of the Amazon, where in 2005 drought and an extreme storm laid waste to at least 500 million trees. It is also happening in vast tracts of the US forests – the fourth largest in the world. They too are now emitting more CO2 than they are taking in. Article >>

War Against Nature Rages: Palm Oil, Tiger Annihilation, Rise of the Eco-Warriors. Article by Reese Halter. For every one metric ton of old growth wood, trees have removed 1.5 metric tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and concurrently released one metric ton of oxygen. Trees are simply the most perfect carbon dioxide warehouses to have ever evolved on Earth. But the unscrupulous palm oil industry has been on a frenzied destructive rampage in the remaining Indonesian rainforests. A report from Greenpeace details the swift clear-cutting of the remaining Southeast Asian rainforests. Article >>

Denis Hayes

"" America Has Reached Peak Cow: Why It’s Time To Reconsider The Human-Bovine Partnership. Interview with Denis Hayes and Gail Boyer Hayes. Gail explains that “Americans eat far more beef than people of any other country except Argentina and little Luxembourg. Two-thirds of us are obese or overweight, and the majority of the medical community says it would be better to not consume so much red meat.” Denis goes on to say “we need to make changes that will protect and benefit both cows and people, because the cows are just putting too much of a demand on our natural resources.” Interview >>

"" Changing The Climate. Interview with Denis Hayes. Hayes answers questions about how to mobilize Americans to take up climate change as a top-tier issue, the politics of oil, the prospects of solar energy, and optimism for the future. Interview >>

"" Deep Green Buildings Are A Necessity. Article by Denis Hayes. A deep green building is not a mere stylistic preference, like Art Deco or Brutalism. The decision to generate power with rooftop solar panels is not akin to selecting granite countertops. Deep green buildings are a necessary component of resilient cities, and resilient cities are a strategic necessity if the current generation is to pass on a diverse, habitable planet to the next. Article >>

"" How Grant Makers Can Turn Real Estate Assets Green. Article by Denis Hayes and Dennis Creech. Unlike public corporations, foundations are not accountable to shareholders or investors. The U.S. tax code entrusts them with a pool of tax-advantaged money and an expectation that they will use it to help advance the public good. Because of the federally subsidized tax benefits foundations receive, they have a special responsibility — and the wherewithal — to step out and take risks in areas where business often fears to tread. Article >>

"" Too Much Bad Beef. Interview with Denis Hayes. Speaking with the award-winning social and environmental journal Green American, Hayes describes how conventional beef impacts our health, ruins our environment, and exacerbates the climate crisis more than any other type of meat. He explains why we need to eat less feedlot beef – and how to get there. Interview >>

David Helvarg

50 Ways To Save the Ocean. Article by David Helvarg. Taken from his book 50 Ways To Save The Ocean, this simple listing provides a rich menu of practical, easily implemented actions for people who care about protecting the ocean. Article >>

Defending the Earth from Donald Trump. Article by David Helvarg. As a coastal developer, Donald Trump has bulldozed ancient sand dunes and opposed offshore wind turbines (because they “ruined the view”) in Scotland, sought to build seawalls and fill in (smother) seagrass meadows and coral reefs in Florida, and built golf club luxury homes on a geologically unstable bluff in California where the eighteenth hole had earlier fallen into the sea. Article >>

The Ocean and President Trump. Article by David Helvarg. Like a rogue wave, the election victory of Donald Trump left about half the nation stunned and the other half giddy with foam. Among the worried parties, environmentalists are girding for a long series of battles around climate and expected attacks on keystone agencies. Article >>

Rage Against The Dying Of The Reefs. Article by David Helvarg. Tropical reefs cover less than 1 percent of the ocean, but are home and nursery to 25 percent of all marine species. Billions of fish, mollusks, and other creatures rely on reefs for food and shelter. Most marine scientists now believe 75 percent of the world’s coral reefs will be dead due to accelerating climate change by mid-century. Half are already gone. Article >>

Time Running Out To Stop Trump From Opening Marine Sanctuaries To Oil Drilling. Article by David Helvarg. Time is short if you care about preserving some of California's greatest natural wonders and recreational opportunities. Six national monuments in our state are at risk, along with parts of all four of the national marine sanctuaries off the California coast — Channel Islands, Monterey Bay, the Greater Farallones and Cordell Bank. Article >>

William Honachefsky

"" Ecologically Based Municipal Land Use Planning. Book excerpt by William Honachefsky. “I admit there was a time in my own early years as a young land surveyor (the pre-Earth Day decade at least) when I too regarded the land simply as a commodity, and not part of a larger continuum, intimately linked to the surrounding air, water, vegetation, and wildlife.” Book Excerpt >>

Linda Mason Hunter

"" Choosing Healthy Building Materials. Article by Linda Mason Hunter. When specifying healthy building materials, remember to read product labels, ask questions of the manufacturer, and study material safety data sheets (MSDS) to find out exactly what is in a product before you buy it. Don’t assume government is protecting you from harmful products. Article >>

"" Greening Your Child’s Bedroom Or Baby Nursery. Article by Linda Mason Hunter. Whether getting a precious infant’s nursery organized or redoing your child’s bedroom, following a few green tips can help keep your kids healthy and happy in the long run. Try not to be put off by a bit of extra cost. When done well, green home improvements more than pay for themselves in peace of mind. Article >>
