Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Maine should lead Washington on climate policy
Bangor Daily News - 12/24/2013.
By Peter Mills and Sharon S. Tisher - It is fortunate for all 7 billion people on Earth that humans are finally learning new ways to produce and use energy. Examples are legion: hybrid cars, LED light bulbs, more economical wind, solar and hydropower, super-insulated buildings and fiber-optic communications to reduce physical travel and postal messaging.
Northern Shrimp: first casualty of New England warming water?
The Working Waterfront - 12/23/2013.
By Ben Martens - Maine's traditional small boat fishermen are in trouble. Those in our struggling groundfish fishery have increasingly depended on shrimp to supplement their income in the winter months.

The Washington Post - 12/22/2013.
By Kendall Helblig - The honeybees that pollinate one-third of Americans’ daily diet are dying, and in the eyes of some environmentalists, one culprit may be a decades-old Environmental Protection Agency system.
