New San Andreas Fault research might change how damage shakes out

Ten years ago, Kim Blisniuk was hiking along the San Andreas fault in the Coachella Valley desert when she looked up and saw something spectacular in the rocks: channels running along the canyon that would later challenge scientists’ understanding of how quake damage in Southern California might shake out. “It came out at me. I was like, ‘Oh my gosh!,’” said the San Jose State University professor of geology. “It was really, really exciting.” These channels indicated to Blisniuk that a part of t...

Elizabeth Kolbert talks California climate change and ‘Under a White Sky: The Nature of the Future’

For more than 15 years, Elizabeth Kolbert has been covering the impact humans have had on the environment. In that time, she says, her beat hasn’t changed as much as one might hope. “When I started out, there was sort of a sense that if people knew what was going on, they would come to their senses and there would be this political change that we needed,” says Kolbert on a recent phone call from Massachusetts. “That has not really happened.” She adds, “Maybe it is happening now. We’ll see what h...

Court upholds $25M Roundup verdict in blow to Bayer

By Tom Hals | Reuters A federal appeals court on Friday upheld a $25 million judgment and trial verdict finding Bayer’s Roundup caused a California resident’s non-Hodgkin lymphoma, dealing a blow to the chemical company’s hopes of limiting its legal risk over the weed-killer. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco rejected Bayer’s argument that lawsuits like Edwin Hardeman’s never should go to trial because federal pesticide laws barred allegations that the company failed to warn...

Cod almighty: how a ‘mythical’ Faroes delicacy has vanished

A giant cod that was once a fishing staple is now so rare it has become the preserve of a few fine dinersIt was no ordinary cod that Teitur Christensen was preparing. The head chef at Barbara Fish House, one of four restaurants located in tiny wooden houses in Tórshavn, the Faroe Islands’ capital, Christensen was hosting what has become known as a “Bank evening”, because of the main dish. In the small cosy rooms of these ancient houses – one of which was built more than 500 years ago – his team ...

State’s 1,230 mile coastal trail 70% complete, according to new online map

California’s decades-old dream of building a coastal trail that covers all 1,230 miles from Mexico to Oregon is about 70% complete, but that accomplishment comes with good news and bad news. A detailed map unveiled online Wednesday, May 12, shows numerous long stretches where you can walk or bike along the shore, like the 23-mile trek from the Newport Beach’s Balboa Peninsula to the Port of Long Beach. The map, three years in the making, is a project of the state’s Coastal Commission and Coastal...

3 environmental groups take 3 positions on Poseidon Water desalination plant

Among attributes of the controversial Poseidon desalination plant proposed for Huntington Beach is the $1.5 million or so it would spend annually to keep the tidal inlet open at the Bolsa Chica wetlands, five miles up the coast from the project site. But as much as the money is needed there, the three non-profit groups dedicated to the wetlands’ preservation clash when it comes to support for the desalter plant. The state spent $151 million to create the inlet in 2006, restoring the estuary’s in...

Drought hits second year, but experts say the state is better prepared
