Rare plants, clean air and Greek gold

This week's articles were all environmental, all the time. I usually have a few tech pieces in the mix -- and I did work on several this past week that won't see print for a while yet -- but all of this week's published articles covered eco-flavored topics. Three covered endangered species, two covered pollution, several were climate-related (I'm starting to overlap here), and only two could be said to be good news. Oh well.

Without further ado, let's start with this week's Extinction Countdown articles for Scientific American:

Amazing Hawaiian Plant Loved by Tourists but Endangered by Climate Change

Rare Japanese Rabbit Leaves Endangered Species List

And now, a whole bunch of articles for Mother Nature Network:

Climate change will increase wind and waves in Australia

Airpocalypse: Beijing faces life-threatening air pollution levels

Ken Salazar to step down as Secretary of the Interior

Greek gold mine could bring economic boom or environmental destruction

San Diego Zoo and Audubon Nature Institute team up to breed endangered species

84% of fish contaminated by mercury, study finds

I have something like ten articles awaiting publication at various magazines. I don't think any of them will hit this week -- or maybe not for several weeks to come -- but you can always follow me on Twitter for links and other updates.
