In a world first, Japan's most recent annual Greenhouse Gas Inventory, provided to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) this month, factored the carbon absorbed by seagrass and seaweed beds into its calculations. The Ministry of the Environment estimates that in fiscal year 2022, that amount of blue carbon – carbon that is naturally stored by marine and coastal ecosystems – was roughly 350,000 tons

How Minnesota is rebuilding its forests to counter climate change

But our Northwoods are in trouble, according to local scientists, and are at risk of becoming grasslands in as little as 50 years because trees can't adapt as quickly as our weather is warming.

Manna of Conejo Valley not only helps feed the hungry in our area – now it’s also helping address our climate crisis.

On Earth Day, I joined local leaders in saluting Manna’s participation in a pilot project to collect prepared food from restaurants and caterers and divert it to those in need.

This is significant because food rescued by food banks is typically shelf-stable (eg, canned goods, pasta, cereal), while prepared food more often goes to landfills. Food in landfills is a significant source of methane, a far more potent greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide.

Thanks to the Manna team, county government, and supporters who make this program possible.

Locations around the globe are experiencing on a regular basis.

Some of the most populations experience disasters so often it has come to be normalized.

A from found residents of a , neighborhood have grown so accustomed to living through extreme events they've developed a “disaster subculture” that challenges views of reality & how social agencies can help.

The largest renewable energy development in US history cuts through Tohono O’odham, Hopi, Zuni and San Carlos Apache lands.

“There is really no follow through when tribes express their concerns.”

“It’s hard to convince governments and businesses to deny these big energy projects without outside intervention.”

“They are doing the same thing as fossil fuel. It’s just more trendy.”

@siisiikostagner reports from the UN.

More from the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues:

#Indigenous leaders have called for a moratorium on carbon markets and other "false climate solutions."

“The transition towards a green economy [keeps] starting from the same extractivist-based logic that prioritizes the private sector," said Darío José Mejía Montalvo, of the Zenú tribe in Colombia.
