Only three new articles last week, but they made an impact.
First, my two Extinction Countdown articles for Scientific American:
Ecuadorian Hydroelectric Plant Could Cause Extinction of Rare Plant [This is the only US coverage of this rather major event.]
Endangered Species Status Sought for 'Don't Tread on Me' Rattlesnakes [Mother Jones picked this up and ran with its more ludicrous political aspects.]
And, my latest for Mother Nature Network:
Could your shoes power your cellphone? [This was reprinted by Forbes, the Miami Herald, the Sacramento Bee and several other publishers.]
