Food production generates more than a third of manmade greenhouse gas emissions – a new framework tells how much comes from cr

"...Land use change – clearing forests for farms and ranches, which reduces carbon storage in trees and soils – accounts for 29 percent of total food production greenhouse gas emissions. Another 38 percent comes from farmland management activities, such as plowing fields, which reduces soil carbon storage, and treating crops with nitrogen fertilizer. Farmers also burn a lot of fossil fuel to run their tractors and harvesters..."

A look at some of the key decisions made when fighting wildfires

"...Why do fire managers let some wildfires burn?Sometimes fires fit a beneficial land management goal, like when they burn in a wilderness area or national park. Fires are part of the natural forest cycle, and “at times that’s the right approach,” said Lane, who is in his 35th season as a firefighter, much of that spent in western Oregon. He joined Washington’s natural resources agency in 2019..."

Music Mondays: Cold Missouri Waters

"...August 5, 1949 wasn’t actually the hottest day on record in Montana (that’s a bit of poetic license), but hot, dry weather indeed contributed to the fire’s ignition and rapid spread. That hot, dry weather is becoming more common as our climate changes; the last few years have seen wildfire seasons more intense than ever, and there’s no reason to think the situation is going to improve soon. Heat waves and wildfires may even be the climate-change piece that makes the most headlines and makes the climate emergency obvious to the most people..."

"...In north-central Washington, firefighters battled two blazes in Okanogan County that threatened hundreds of homes and again caused hazardous air quality conditions Saturday. And in northern Idaho, east of Spokane, Washington, a small fire near the Silverwood Theme Park prompted evacuations Friday evening at the park and in the surrounding area. The theme park was back open on Saturday with the fire half contained..."
