Headed towards the ocean

Today I was just sitting here and realizing as I type this post that I forget how the mighty Mississippi river behind me heads down towards the ocean. Then as I read an article this morning that points out a little good news with regards to the ocean, I thought I would post a few articles on our oceans. So without further adieu…

In Midst of Modern Ills, Some Ocean Success Stories” with Oceanographer Jeremy Jackson over at Earth & Sky.

These next two two articles are a couple of ways in which people are trying do just that. “U.S. Leaders Support of the Sea Treaty” via the Worldwatch Institute and “WWF Seeks Innovative Solutions to Bycatch Though Worldwide Competition” by Erika Viltz via the World Wildlife Federation, both courtesy of the Environmental News Network.

This next article, which also goes along with that thinking, is “Quote of the Day: Tim McClanahan on Fish and Coral Reef Conservation” by Michael Graham Richard at Treehugger.

We will finish with this last article, also from Earth and Sky. It talks about one example of what is also happening to our oceans right now and is entitled “Mystery Ocean Dead Zones in Pacific“.

Time to talk about libraries

This is a topic that up till now, I don’t think I’ve covered. Well, all good things must come to an end.

Here’s a place that sounds like a great place to work. The article is entitled “The Aquarium: The Eccentric, Wonderful Environmental Library is Open” at The Daily Green.

The other article is how one library is doing something totally green in “Kill-A-Watt Meters  Available at Ottawa’s Public Library” by Michael Graham Richard at Treehugger.

These are my kind of parks

Here are two articles on parks that I’ve come across recently that I thought were really neat.

This first one is about perhaps where the future of parks is headed entitled “Parks That Can Move When the Animals Do” from the Environmental News Network via the Christian Science Monitor .

The second article is “Brazil Promotes Sustainability With Sao Paulo Eco-Park” is over at Inhabitat. This too is a direction that newer parks maybe headed.
