From @yaleenvironment360: The economic and health costs of air pollution from burning fossil fuels totaled $2.9 trillion in 2018, calculated in the form of work absences, years of life lost, and premature deaths, according to a new report. The cost represents 3.3 percent of global GDP, or about $8 billion per day.

The study, the first of its kind to quantify the global impacts of air pollution caused by burning fossil fuels, focused on the health impacts of three specific types of pollutants: Nitrogen dioxide, ozone, and fine particulate matter. It also included a regional breakdown of air pollution impacts. The researchers found that the most premature deaths from fossil fuel-related air pollution in 2018 were in mainland China (1.8 million), India (1 million), and the United States (230,000). As a result, those three countries also faced the highest annual costs: $900 billion in China, $600 billion in the U.S., and $150 billion in India.

From @cnnclimate: Polar bears rely on sea ice for nearly every aspect of their survival, and with ice beginning to melt earlier in the season, these animals are becoming thinner and having fewer cubs, according to a new study. Polar bears “are an icon of climate change, but they're also an early indicator of climate change because they are so dependent on sea ice,” writes Kristin Laidre, the study’s author and a professor at the University of Washington. Polar bears are considered a vulnerable species, one level below

From The @WashingtonPost: Construction crews began blasting sites within Arizona’s Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument as part of the construction of President Trump’s border barrier, and the affected areas include sites sacred to Native American groups, according to a congressman from Arizona and advocates. The Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument is an internationally recognized biosphere reserve — meaning it has plants and animals so rare that the United Nations has given it a special designation. It includes about 330,000 acres of designated wilderness and is home to ancestral grounds sacred to the Tohono O’odham Nation, one of at least a dozen Native American groups that claim connections to grounds within the monument. Rep. Raúl M. Grijalva (D-Ariz.), whose district includes the reservation, said crews this week began blasting through parts of Monument Hill, which includes a burial site for the Tohono O’odham Nation.

photo_library A pangolin’s natural defense is to roll into a ball when threatened, which is why they’re such easy targets for wildlife traffickers. Today on #WorldPangolinDay, I'm supporting the @PangolinCrisis team with their #RollWithUs campaign to protect these gentle creatures from the trafficking crisis that is putting them at risk of extinction. Share this post to help raise awareness for pangolins and follow @PangolinCrisis for more information.

photo_library Amidst the devastation wreaked by the recent bushfires in Australia are inspiring stories of compassion and solidarity. These photos from @global_wildlife_conservation capture some of the incredible stories made possible with support from the @EarthAlliance #AustraliaWildfireFund. From rescuing and rehabilitating kangaroos whose homes have burnt to the ground to providing food for Critically Endangered Brush-tailed Rock Wallabies, from resettling turtles whose pools have dried up to building a sanctuary for wild koalas, the tireless work of @wireswildliferescue @aussieark and @bushheritageaus in the field is inspiring.

From @cnnclimate: 🐝 Bumblebee populations are rapidly declining across North America and Europe, according to a study from the University of Ottawa that examined 66 bumblebee species across the two continents. The study’s findings highlighted that as climate change causes temperatures and precipitation to rise beyond what bumblebees can tolerate, their risk for extinction increases. “The things [we] grew up with as kids are fading away very fast,” said a senior author of the study. “It’s not just that we’re looking at what our kids will experience; it’s that we are looking back not even a full generation, just to when we were kids, and saying, ‘Could we take our children to places we loved and find what we found?’ What our study says is that that answer is no across entire continents.” (📸:Natalia Fedosenko\TASS via Getty Images)
