Drilling In The Arctic Refuge Threatens The World’s Birds

Why should Americans who live in the lower 48 states care that the U.S. Congress may try to open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil and gas drilling? After all, it’s thousands of miles away in far northeastern Alaska, a place so remote most Americans will never visit. Here’s why: No matter where you live in the United States, it’s very likely that some of your favorite local birds were born in the Arctic Refuge and return each year to raise their young […]

The Good, The Bad, And The Bigly

Donald Trump signed another executive order last week and, no surprise, it was awful. This one aims to expand oil drilling off our coasts, in Arctic seas, and in marine sanctuaries. It also seeks to revoke safety regulations that were implemented after the Deepwater Horizon spill (which occurred exactly seven years and eight days prior to Trump’s order). I could spend the rest of this post recapping why Trump’s order would guarantee more disasters like Deepwater Horizon, while doing zilch to achieve U.S. energy independence. But, really, isn’t it already obvious that giving Big Oil free rein to sink more wells off our coasts and beaches is a bad idea? So instead, let’s look at how this executive order epitomizes a different kind of bad ? a kind we’ve seen over and over from this administration: Bad as in ill-conceived. Bad as in ineffectual […]

Sea Ice, Nature, And The Trump Budget

Arctic sea ice reached its annual maximum extent on March 7, the lowest maximum in the 38-year satellite record, according to a new report by the National Snow and Ice Data Center. In other words, both winter and summer sea ice continue to decline. That report followed another piece of recent sea ice news: A new paper, in Nature Climate Change, reported that CO2 and other greenhouse gas emissions from human activities are responsible for up to two-thirds of Arctic sea ice loss. The study suggests that the rest, a higher proportion than previously thought, may be due to natural variability in the climate system. That polar bears depend on sea ice and that sea ice can only decline as temperatures rise are both well established by numerous studies. In addition, we have known for over 150 years that global mean temperatures can only increase as long as CO2 levels rise. This means that sea ice and polar bears will ultimately disappear if we don’t stop CO2 rise […]

Trump’s Presidency Gives Norway Hope For Fossil Fuel Exploration In The Arctic

Trump’s inauguration in January marked the start of high levels of distress across the world as news of his policies spreads across the globe.But in the midst of it all Norway sees a ray of hope for its plans in the Arctic Circle.Officials from Norway’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs say Trump’s business background may suit their development goals better than Obama’s pro-environment policies.“The Trump administration is more in line with our point of view [about the Arctic], which is more use than protection,” said Bjørn Midthun, from Norway’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs at a conference on the Arctic in January.Norway is one of eight countries in the Arctic Council, a governing body composed of the nations with territory in the Arctic. As climate change dramatically changes the landscape in the region, the council finds itself exploring opportunities that weren’t possible before.An estimated 100 billion barrels of oil and 35 trillion cubic metres of natural gas are believed to be in the region, according to researchers from the University College London. These reserves are becoming more easily accessible as climate change thaws sea ice and makes the region increasingly navigable. Countries like Norway see this as an opportunity to expand exports through the Arctic.But environmental experts are concerned. The Arctic is widely considered to be the canary in the coal mine of the effects of climate change […]
