Reservoir emissions: a quiet threat to expanding hydropower

Hydropower is a frequent target for criticism. Regardless of your views on global warming, turning a serene stretch of river into an artificial lake humming with electrical equipment can make you unpopular, and the announcement of any new hydropower project is often swiftly followed by outcries over habitat disruption and community displacement, among other concerns.

What's infecting England's cows with TB? Is it badgers, or farmers and climate change?

NEWENT, Gloucestershire, England -- In a mist-shrouded parking lot, Will Ricks, a surveyor and landowner from Ross-on-Wye, briefs eight volunteers on the evening's mission. Ricks and his group belong to a volunteer organization, Gloucestershire Against Badger Shooting (GABS). Since the badger cull began in August in Somerset and Gloucestershire, GABS volunteers spend most nights trudging down the public footpaths that crisscross muddy fields to monitor badger habitat, searching for trapped and wounded animals.
