Transforming Climate Action: Ensuring the science is safe

"...The ocean’s supreme power for carbon sequestration has drawn Transforming Climate Action researchers to focus on it as a potential gamechanger in the fight against global warming. They’re hoping to learn if the ocean’s natural abilities to absorb CO2 from the atmosphere can be amplified to help us meet net zero carbon targets by 2050 and avoid the worst impacts of a hotter planet..."


B.C. announces all repairs on Coquilla Highway finished from 2021 flood

"...“Climate-resilient highways are crucial for B. C. The province has improved infrastructure to handle more frequent extreme weather events in the future,” Fleming said..."


Battling Scotch Broom on the South Coast

"...Our efforts to cut and remove scotch broom in the South Coast Region help to reduce fuel and fire risk while increasing biodiversity and persistence of native species. The field crew also conducts many surveys of scotch broom where it was removed, and future removal sites. This way The Nature Trust and our partners can prioritize new restoration projects and rapidly detect encroachment of invasive species..."


South Okanagan protected areas damaged following unauthorized work

"...According to the organization, unauthorized work by the Ministry of Forests and improper cattle grazing led to environmental damage in the South Okanagan and White Lake Grasslands protected area. Back in 2020, the organization’s executive director, Jesse Zeman, came across the damage and reported it. “We were following a wildlife trail on foot and found a road in the protected area on a slope that had no road previously,” said Zeman in a press release..."

'Soil is everything': Inside one Dal prof's work to understand how dirt can help humanity

"...“I certainly liked digging holes and things like that as a kid, but I guess a lot of my interest in soil is that it is the interface of many of our vital earth system processes,” explains Dr. Heung, an associate professor in Dalhousie's Department of Plant, Food, and Environmental Sciences. “Soils are the centre of my universe..."


Ecology group says Nova Scotia coastal protection legislation needs to be proclaimed

"...The Ecology Action Centre says the Coastal Protection Act is urgently needed because of the damage being caused by an increasing number of intense storms. Marla MacLeod, the centre's director of programs, says the delay in proclaiming the act, which is now into its third set of public consultations, is “recklessly irresponsible” and represents a disregard for the safety of Nova Scotians. Passed by the former Liberal government, the law is aimed at offering better protection for areas like dunes and salt marshes and to set out where people can build along the coastline in order to avoid the effects of erosion..."


Sable Island’s shifting landscape offers insights into global groundwater loss

"...They found fresh groundwater loss tied to decades of dune erosion, seasonal waves, storms and hurricanes. During storms, seawater floods the beaches, leaches into the ground and salinizes fresh beach groundwater. When storms repeatedly batter the island, floodwaters can erode dunes and cause groundwater salinization to incrementally shift landward and lead to long-term freshwater loss..."


First atmospheric river of fall deluges parts of B.C. south coast, southern Interior

"...“Following a season of severe drought and wildfire, rainfall on impacted areas can generate high surface water run-off and erosion due to a lack of vegetation, leading to a possibility of localized flooding and landslides,” the province's statement says..."


B.C.'s South Coast in for a soaking as season's first atmospheric river arrives

"...“Rainfall on impacted areas can generate high surface water runoff and erosion due to a lack of vegetation, leading to a possibility of localized flooding and landslides — although widespread or severe impacts are not expected as part of this atmospheric river system,” the ministry said in a media release.
