Tell Starbucks: Don’t trash our planet with plastic | Greenpeace

Each minute the equivalent of a garbage truck full of plastic ends up in the ocean, so why do 4 billion plastic line Starbucks paper cups get thrown away every year along with masses of it single-use plastic lids, straws, and culturally?

Starbucks is part of the global plastic problem: tell the coffee giant to stop trashing our planet with plastic!

By 2050 the world’s oceans are projected to have more plastic than fish. Yet Starbucks has no plan to reduce it’s plastic trash and continues to serve paper coffee cups that are nearly impossible to recycle because of the plastic lining.

The sheer amount of plastic trash created by Starbucks is out of control – and it’s ending up in the waterways and other fragile ecosystems.

In 2008, Starbucks said it would serve a 100% recyclable paper cup and increase reusables to 25% by 2015. To date it has not done either.

It’s time for Starbucks to live up to its promises.

Patricia Randolph’s Madravenspeak: The trapper and the coyote – a Wisconsin love story

Chester coyote with Larry and Cheryl

“Knowing him changes you.” ~ Larry, a Wisconsin trapper who adopted a coyote pup

It was June of 2016. I had a call from a Wisconsin trapper – and it was déjà vu all over again. Larry, a Wisconsin trapper and cattle rancher, had adopted an orphan coyote pup, then 4 years old. A DNR warden had shown up at their door to tell Larry’s wife, Cheryl, “We will be back to pick up your coyote to kill him.”

In February 2013 I wrote about a similar situation. Rick Hanestad and his two children had sought and found a coyote den after the mother was killed by a turkey hunter. She had been nursing, so they knew she died close to her den. A year later, with his then 7-year-old daughter and 14-year-old son bonded to the coyote as a family pet, a boundary…

IN HIS URGENT NEW BOOK, Jeff Goodell takes readers on a tour of places likely to be swallowed up by the sea — among them Florida; New York City; Venice; Norfolk, Virginia; Rotterdam; Lagos; and the Marshall Islands.

The book tells the engrossing story of their likely demise, and how our inability to deal with climate change renders this tragedy increasingly inevitable.

Many other places, too, will be swallowed up if humans don’t stop spewing carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. And, alas, even if they do stop, there’s no telling when the sea will stop rising.

While keenly observing and poignantly describing rapidly changing coastal ecologies, Goodell also reports with empathy and acumen on his conversations with a mix of scientists, engineers, community workers, real estate agents, activists, and politicians.

At an event hosted by the Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce in 2016, the theme of the…

North Pole Region Predicted to Experience Another Instance of Above Freezing Temperatures as the Bering Sea Ice is Blasted Away

Take the time to stroll down through the comments additional information.

Those previously rare instances of above freezing temperatures in the Arctic north during winter time are happening more and more often.

(February 20 NASA satellite imagery shows Bering Sea with mostly open water as highly atypical above freezing temperatures drive far north. Note that patches of open water extend well into the Chukchi Sea. Image source: NASA.)

Just Monday and Tuesday of this week, Cape Jessup, Greenland — a mere 400 miles away from the North Pole — experienced above freezing temperatures for two days in a row. This following a February 5 warm air invasion that drove above 32 F temperatures to within 150 miles of this furthest northerly point in our Hemisphere even as, by February 20th, a warm air invasion relentlessly melted the Bering Sea’s typically frozen surface (see image above).

Far Above Average Temperatures Over Our Pole

It’s not just a case of warming…
