'Vulnerable' to extinction: What giraffes are up against

Giraffes vulnerable to extintionThe giraffe is now on the official list of animals and plants that could face extinction in the future.

The majestic animal, which is the tallest land animal in the world, is only found in Africa. In the past 30 years, its numbers have plummeted by nearly 40%, prompting scientists to add it to the list of threatened and endangered animals, according to the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN).

On Wednesday, the IUCN listed giraffes as "vulnerable of extinction."

And the road to preventing giraffes from becoming extinct will take a lot of effort from local governments and non-government organizations, according to David Banks, regional Director for the Africa Region with the Nature Conservancy.


What happens if Delaware-sized iceberg breaks off Antarctica?

Delaware chunk of ice may break offNASA is keeping a close eye on a 70-mile-long rift in an Antarctica ice shelf that could produce a massive iceberg and indirectly lead to rising sea levels.

The crack in the Larsen C Ice Shelf is more than 300 feet wide and about a third of mile deep, according to the agency. Once the crack goes all the way across, it could produce an iceberg the size of Delaware.

Ice shelves are permanent floating sheets of ice that connect to a landmass, according to the National Snow and Ice Data Center.

Feds deny permit for Dakota Access pipeline

Dakota pipeline permit deniedFederal officials have denied the final permits required for the Dakota Access Pipeline project in North Dakota.

The Army Corps of Engineers on Sunday announced it would instead conduct an environmental impact review of the 1,170-mile pipeline project and determine if there are other ways to route it to avoid a crossing on the Missouri River.

“Although we have had continuing discussion and exchanges of new information with the Standing Rock Sioux and Dakota Access, it’s clear that there’s more work to do,” Army Assistant Secretary for Civil Works Jo-Ellen Darcy said in a statement.


Climate scientists condemn article claiming global temperatures are falling

GOP climate paper falseClimate scientists have denounced the House committee on science, space and technology after the Republican-held panel promoted a misleading story expressing skepticism that the earth is dangerously warming.

On Thursday afternoon, the committee tweeted a Breitbart article alleging: “Global Temperatures Plunge. Icy Silence from Climate Alarmists”. The story linked to a British tabloid, the Daily Mail, which claimed that global land temperatures were plummeting, and that humans were not responsible for years of steadily increasing heat.
