das williams (d-santa barbara)

takes a stand against fracking
"last year, we attempted to pass a statewide moratorium on fracking, which i supported, but we fell short of the needed votes to get it out of the legislature. we ended up passing the strictest regulations on fracking in the nation. the regulations were a big win against the oil industry but we need to do more to protect our limited water supply, our environment, and to lower our dependence on oil."

happy baseball season opening

and, why yes....the sport is being affected by climate change.
the crack of bats this time of year means two things: baseball is back and winter is over.

but major league baseball's spring soundtrack relies heavily on wood from white ash trees treasured for strength and flexibility. And it may soon sound different as a tiny beetle threatens the northern pennsylvania stands that for more than a century have supplied wood for bats.

experts say climate change may alter just how far north and south the tree-killing pest will spread. northern pennsylvania is right in the emerald ash borer's sweet spot.

"if climate change reduces those extreme cold temperatures in northern states, which can kill them, it may allow it to spread north faster," said dan herms, a professor and entomologist at ohio state university. "But surely they'll get to where louisville slugger is." - climate change
