1. WILDLIFE

The ice goes, fire comes and new species redefine the North Woods

Both literally and metaphorically, Bruce Kerfoot's life has been shaped by the seasons of Minnesota's Gunflint Lake and adjacent woods. The 72-year-old is a living, breathing, talking barometer of environmental change, and he has adapted to all manner of landscape alternations wrought by drought, wind, fire, flood, ice and snow.

2. NEGOTIATIONS

Activists worry about impact of vague Rio+20 meeting on climate talks

Climate change activists have begun to openly worry that the upcoming Rio+20 U.N. mega-conference on sustainable development has abandoned a grand vision for fighting global warming. In their fear of tainting the sunny Rio de Janeiro summit with the dark clouds of the ever-troubled international climate negotiations, analysts note, national and U.N. leaders have avoided even speaking about the two bodies in the same sentence. The result, many say, is that Rio is in danger of pushing climate change to the far margins of the global environmental discussion.
