Re: “Bad Sea Rising

It does behoove us. The current state of affairs of continued emissions will one day be viewed as an environmental crime against humanity. Just look at Glacier National Park: the glaciers are retreating, if you doubt global warming, or as it is commonly referred to, climate change. A succinct and insightful article. As an aside, I used to joke with one of my former employees who purchased a hybrid years ago. I scoffed that climate change was that serious. Since then, I've researched the issue and am convinced. Now, my wife and I both drive a Prius. Best car I've ever had and awesome gas mileage and lower emissions.

Re: “Karuk Tribe Restricts Fishing

The state of salmon is very disappointing, especially how it impacts the local tribes.

Re: “Sailing on Big Lagoon

Great story. It's also fun to kayak at Big Lagoon. For many people who may not realize it, the east side of the lagoon used to be fully underwater at high tides. Now, if memory serves me correctly, since I haven't been in Humboldt for 8 years, the east side of the lagoon, traversed by Highway 101, is more of an estuary. Fond memories reading the story. In some winters, the lagoon will breach at the north end.

Re: “Slip, Sliding Away

Excellent in-depth story on one of the worst parts of Highway 101 in Del Norte County. I'll never forget that going home from an assignment, when I was The Triplicate's editor, a car came around the corner shown in the photo in this story and overturned. Thankfully, everyone was fine, but I've covered too many bad accidents in that stretch. That was so long ago that the wall shown in the photo was not even there yet.

Re: “Will the Lassics Lupine Survive?

Is there an effort to grow them in nurseries or save seed stock?

Re: “Ruling Puts Martens Up For Endangered Species Reconsideration

I can't believe there is a question about the marten's endangered status. Just look at the estimated population and it should qualify. Thank you, Kimberly, for posting EPIC's news release.
