A new and mysterious disease was ravaging California’s oak trees, and the plane was surveying the forest to establish a set of baseline images—a moment in time scientists could refer back to in case the disease did show up in Oregon.

The scientists invoked a state law allowing them to quarantine nine square miles of forest near Brookings, where the Chetco meets the Pacific, and launched a scorched-earth campaign to eradicate the disease. They chopped the diseased trees down, along with a hundred-foot buffer of healthy trees and other plants that might harbor the disease. Then they burned everything.

Kingston, Jamaica – Marine scientists from around the world have issued a stark warning about the emerging industry of deep sea mining, stating that its development “puts the overall health of ocean ecosystems under threat” and could contribute to climate breakdown. [1] Greenpeace activists went to the International Seabed Authority (ISA) annual meeting in Kingston, joined by the members of Jamaica Environment Trust and representatives of several other Jamaican civil society organizations, to deliver a  letter of concern by 28 scientists from eight countries to the participants of the meeting. A banner was unfurled at the event which said “No deep sea mining” as Greenpeace demands protection of the sea bed and global oceans.
