Solar Firefly Otters (and Other Stuff)

One of my favorite gigs each year involves interviewing the winner of the IEEE Presidents' Scholarship for The Institute. Here's my article about this year's inspiring teen:

Texas High School Student Designs Self-Cooling Solar Cell

Last week also brought my latest for TakePart, a story you won't read anywhere else:

Firefly Populations Are Blinking Out

Finally this week, here are two new Extinction Countdown articles for Scientific American -- bad news and (at the very least) interesting news:

Asian Otters are the Latest Victims of the Illegal Pet and Fur Trades

The Italian Alps Hold a Secret: A New Species of Viper

On a slightly different note, you can hear me talk about turtles on the latest Green Dudes segment of the Green Divas podcast here.

That's it for this week's link list. Come on back next Monday for more links!
