Climate Change Fallout Causes Torres Strait Islander Leaders To Sue Australian Government

"...In a landmark legal case, two Torres Strait Islander leaders are suing the Australian government for failing to protect the disproportionately affected Torres Strait Island people against harm from climate change. Wadhuam Paul Kabai, Wadhuam Pabai Paibai, and their team allege the government breached its duty of caring for the island community by not taking greater steps to mitigate the effects of rising sea levels from climate change. They will argue that it needs to dramatically reduce the country’s greenhouse gas emissions to stop the loss of the Torres Strait Islanders’ home and culture, and seek a judicial order stating such..."

Motor vehicle access restrictions in effect in wildfire areas

"...The closures affect backcountry roads across approximately 536,000 hectares, and are due to severe wildfire damage. Concerns include wildfire impact to habitats that need time to recover; erosion of charred soils and impacts to fish habitat; increased vulnerability of wildlife due to migration disruptions, habitat loss, and improved sight lines for hunting where vegetation was burned; and increased access to wildlife habitat due to the construction of approximately 2,900 kilometres of fire guards..."

How Drought Could Make Sea-Level Rise Worse

"...That balance is now likely at an end. California and the western United States face drier futures with climate change, and although there is already significant concern about how drought will continue to interact with agriculture, wildfires, and habitats, sea-level rise and coastal erosion tend to be part of an entirely separate climate conversation. Because drought is so strongly linked with natural shoreline retreat in southern California, it could further imperil attempts to shore up the coastline against sea-level rise..."

Mary Lowther column: Getting the cover crops in before the freeze

"...Fortunately our nights have been warm this past week, so I’m pushing the gardening envelope to sow cover crop on areas I hadn’t gotten to yet. Cover crops are plants grown for several reasons, none of which include being eaten. They can retain nutrients and microscopic life forms, prevent erosion and the growth of weeds, soften the soil by adding their nutritious mass to it and create passageways for earthworms and other beneficial organisms as their roots rot, but perhaps the greatest contribution cover crops make is helping to create a sponge-like soil that holds water in place during summer drought, keeping it available for food crops..."

Flood watch in effect for Lake Erie, Detroit River and Lake St. Clair shorelines

"...ERCA says with current lake levels still elevated as compared to long term averages, low lying areas along the shorelines are still susceptible to flooding and accelerated rates of erosion due in combination of higher water levels and wind induced waves..."

Backcountry closures in Thompson Okanagan implemented for wildfire season recovery

"...The 2021 wildfire season burned more than 550,000 hectares of habitat in the Thompson Okanagan region, severely displacing wildlife and destroying vegetation. Unregulated public access, according to a release from the Ministry, could have negative effects on sensitive burned ecosystems, including increased soil compaction, increased spread of invasive species and accelerated erosion of wildfire-charred soils, which impacts aquatic ecosystems and fish habitat..."
