Weird history, the saiga saga, endangered seals and more
We'll start, in our usual manner, with my Extinction Countdown articles for Scientific American:
The 4 Most Endangered Seal Species
Saiga Success: Critically Endangered Antelope Population Doubles in 5 Years [This is my fourth annual story on the strange saga of the saiga. I wonder what will happen in year number five?]
The 1919 Boston Molasses Flood: The forgotten tragedy too bizarre for the history books
Methane, ethane and propane found in drinking water near fracking sites
How do plants survive without sun? Math
How are thieves breaking into these cars?
Lake George to become 'the smartest lake in the world'
I don't know how much new work we'll see this week, what with the holiday and all (I really should ask my editors what days they are working), but stay tuned for next week, which could see anywhere between one and four new features. Don't want to wait that long? Follow me on Twitter -- I'll post the links as soon as they go live.
Have a great Fourth of July holiday weekend!
