As Monday morning's sun rises over coastal Maine, I'm already hunkered down in front of the PC working on -- let me see here -- one, two, three...seven new articles. About half of those will see "print" this coming week, while the rest won't appear for a month or more, but let me give you a little tease: you're going to want to read them all. I have interviewed some truly incredible, inspirational people in the past week and I can't wait to share what they had to say.
But for now, let's take a look at last week's articles, which should also serve to entertain and illuminate you.
First up, my two Extinction Countdown articles for Scientific American:
World's Largest Butterfly Threatened by Shrinking Habitat and Deforestation
Fishing Nets, Climate Change Threaten Yellow-Eyed Penguins in New Zealand
Mother Jones also reprinted the above penguin story under their slightly more click-worthy headline: VIDEO: Adorable Singing Penguin Threatened by Climate Change, Nets
Next up, my latest career feature for IEEE-USA's Today's Engineer. I enjoyed putting this one together and I think you'll learn something from it no matter what profession you are in:
Every Engineer is a Green Engineer
Oyster industry struggles to adapt to climate change
Study: Weight training may reduce diabetes risk in men
Google Street View lets you tour the Kennedy Space Center
That's it for now. Follow me on Twitter for more links as they happen!
