All Dried Up: Foreclosures and Forecasts in the American Southwest
May 8, 2009 10:35 AM - Andrew Erdmann, E Magazine

Five cities with the highest foreclosure rates are: Stockton, Bakersfield, and Riverside/San Bernadino in California, Las Vegas/Paradise, NV, and Phoenix, AZ. Growth in each of these cities has required Rube Goldberg-ian water projects, four of them relying on the Colorado River and Stockton benefitting from similarly complex plumbing in California’s Central Valley. The growth of these cities has been funded and encouraged through construction on the urban periphery. These similarities are related, but there has never been an overarching plan for Western urban development. The piecemeal policymaking style that has led to this crisis is particularly evident to me—a water planner—in the Colorado River Watershed.

More Hair Salons Are Going Green
April 24, 2009 11:50 AM - Ashley Varese, E Magazine

For years, hair salons have been criticized for the amount of pollution they generate. Between aerosol sprays and chemicals found in hair color and perm solutions, salons have a reputation for being toxic businesses. While thousands of shops promote the organic products lining their shelves, today’s eco-friendly salon owners go beyond reduced packaging and all-natural hair care; they’re also trying to diminish their impact on the environment by the materials that make up their workspaces and the equipment they use.

Gambia’s Green Monkeys Suffer From Overexposure
April 14, 2009 04:44 PM - Dawn Starin, E Magazine

It’s not only among humans that obesity is a major health problem. In Bijilo Forest Park in The Gambia, it is the green monkeys who are piling into the fast food and risking early-onset diabetes. Years ago, these monkeys foraged for their food. They worked hard, expended energy and ate wild foods appropriate for a wild primate. They were healthy. Today, they feast on ready-prepared food and what amounts to poison for animals is being handed to them by the very people who pay to see them living in their natural environment—tourists.

Food Safety Bill Is Cause for Concern, Not Panic
April 8, 2009 10:49 AM - Alexandra Gross, E Magazine

Over the past several weeks, blog posts and alternative media sites were riddled with panic over H.R. 875, the new bill introduced in the House over food safety regulations. The Food Safety Modernization Act of 2009 aims to “establish the Food Safety Administration within the Department of Health and Human Services to protect health by preventing food-borne illness” and ensure the safety of food products through more stringent regulation guidelines. No one would argue that improving the food safety standards in the U.S. is a negative move. It’s the bill’s vague language that causes concern among supporters of organic and biodynamic farming—and sparks the doomsday scenarios reflected in commentaries on the bill.

Why Are Rising Sea Levels a Threat?
June 9, 2008 08:34 AM - , E Magazine

Recent NASA photos showed the opening of the Northwest Passage and that a third of the Arctic’s sea ice has melted in recent. Are sea levels already starting to rise accordingly, and if so what effects is this having?

Lost in the Amazon
March 21, 2008 12:49 PM - , E Magazine

Wading in muck up to the rims of his black rubber boots, Manoel dos Santos proudly showed off his tall palms of acai (pronounced ah-sie-ee), the deliciously bitter Amazonian berry that American health food stores tout as a miracle fruit. “Ten years ago, we didn’t even have enough acai for ourselves to eat,” dos Santos told the first tour group to ever visit his community.

Throwing Polar Bears a Lifeline
March 21, 2008 11:50 AM - , E Magazine

A trio of leading environmental groups joined together again last week in filing suit against the federal government for missing the legal deadline—it passed more than two months ago—to make a final decision on whether to afford the polar bear protection under the Endangered Species Act (ESA). The three groups—the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), the Center for Biological Diversity and Greenpeace—contend that polar bear populations are threatened due to the global warming-induced break-up of the Arctic sea ice that serves as their habitat during the crucial summer feeding season. Several leading scientists concur that the Arctic could be ice-free in the summer within a half-dozen years. And a recent U.S. Geological Survey report predicted that two-thirds of the world’s remaining polar bears would likely be extinct by 2050, including all polar bears within the U.S.

Ocean Deserts Expanding
March 13, 2008 01:04 AM - , E Magazine

Scientists from the federal National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the University of Hawaii unveiled new research last week showing that steadily warming sea surface waters are causing the least biologically productive swaths of the world’s oceans—so-called “ocean deserts”—to expand at an unprecedented rate (some 15 percent on average) over a nine-year period ending in 2007.

Cleaner, Greener U: Students Drive the Campus Climate Movement
March 6, 2008 11:19 PM - , E Magazine

Climate change is our generation’s civil rights movement,” says Brianna Cayo Cotter, communications director for the Energy Action Coalition, swilling from a tall cup of coffee. Cotter talked fast and raked her fingers through her thick, wavy hair, staring intently, as though she’d been on a steady diet of nothing but caffeine for the last few days. This was PowerShift 2007, held at the University of Maryland, the largest gathering of college students ever assembled to fight climate change, a weekend of non-stop workshops and speakers and rallies brought together by Energy Action staff.

Reader's Q&A: Coral Reefs And Hybrid Cars
October 18, 2007 12:32 PM - , E Magazine

Q: I’ve heard about the die-off of coral reefs due to global warming. I’ve also read that coral reefs themselves store carbon dioxide (CO2), one of the main global warming gases. So if coral reefs are dying out, isn’t that a double whammy that increases the CO2 in the atmosphere? -- Tom Ozzello, Maplewood, MN

According to marine scientists, the world’s coral reefs—those underwater repositories for biodiversity that play host to some 25 percent of all marine life—are in big trouble as a result of global warming. Data collected by the international environmental group WWF (formerly World Wildlife Fund) show that 20 percent of the world’s coral reefs have been effectively destroyed and show no immediate sign of recovery, while about 50 percent of remaining reefs are under imminent or long-term threat of collapse.
