A Look At The Runoff Fueling Lake Erie’s Algae Bloom Last Updated on 2014-08-11 10:32:45 This week, residents of Toledo, Ohio, could drink their tap water again, after contamination from an algae bloom in Lake Erie forced officials to shut the water off. The bloom was caused by runoff from farms along the lake. Robert Broz, director of theExtension Water Quality Program at the University of Missouri, joins — to discuss what causes that runoff and what’s in it, including nitrogen, phosphorus and potash.

New Science Suggests More Land-Based Ecosystems Have Been Lost than the Biosphere Can Bear Last Updated on 2014-08-06 10:01:30 An important scientific journal article published today finds that 66% of Earth’s land area must be maintained as natural and agro-ecological ecosystems to sustain a livable environment. Yet about 50% have already been lost, threatening global biosphere collapse. In describing the paper, author Dr. Glen Barry suggests the Ebola epidemic, California drought, and Middle East revolutions indicate planetary boundaries have been exceeded. August 5, 2014 (Madison, WI) – New science finds that two-thirds of Earth’s land-based ecosystems must be protected to sustain the biosphere long-term. Yet about one-half of Earth’s natural ecosystems have already been lost. The scientific review article by Dr. Glen Barry – entitled “Terrestrial ecosystem loss and biosphere collapse” – was published today in the international journal “Management of... More »

They survey and synthesize science, within and between disciplines and across sectors and regions. They highlight key knowledge that can improve policy choices and identify significant gaps that can limit effective decision making. Assessments also track progress by identifying changes in the condition of the Earth, changes in human response, and advances in science over time. Assessments have been... More »
EPA Climate Indicator’s Report Release Last Updated on 2014-06-24 10:38:52 EPA Report Shows Impact of Changing Climate on Americans’ Health and Environment WASHINGTON – Today, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released the third edition of a report, Climate Change Indicators in the United States. The report pulls together observed data on key measures of our environment, including U.S. and global temperature and precipitation, ocean heat and ocean acidity, sea level, length of growing season, and many others. With 30 indicators that include over 80 maps and graphs showing long-term trends, the report demonstrates that climate change is already affecting our environment and our society. “These indicators make it clear that climate change is a serious problem and is happening now here in the U.S. and around the world,” said Janet McCabe, acting assistant administrator for EPA’s Office of Air and Radiation....
