Purple herons nest in UK for first time 19.5.2010 Guardian: Environment
RSPB and Kent police protecting herons' nest in Dungeness in the hope pair will successfully breed A pair of purple herons are nesting for the first time in the UK, conservationists said today. The striking birds breed in southern Europe and visit Britain in small numbers each year, but the pair have nested on the Dungeness peninsula in Kent and could be the first to successfully breed here, if they can hatch the eggs they have laid and rear the chicks to fledging. Experts said the bird, which has struggled in Europe in recent decades, is one of the species likely to be setting up home in southern Britain as climate change pushes wildlife further north. But according to the RSPB, the site at Dungeness is under threat from the ...

SENS. JOHN F. Kerry (D-Mass.) and Joseph I. Lieberman (I-Conn.) have provided Congress with an opportunity. Their climate bill, released last week, is imperfect. But it offers a start, very much in the right direction. Contrary to popular wisdom, acting on global warming is not going to get easier after this year's election. Legislators should seize this moment.

Anti-establishment Rand Paul set to win Kentucky primary Anti-establishment Tea Party activists appeared to have pulled off their biggest victory yet last night with their champion, Rand Paul, on course to win the Kentucky Republican primary, reflecting the sourness and cynicism felt throughout the US electorate.

Judge grants feds delay in oil shale lawsuits 19.5.2010 Vail Colorado: Columnists
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - A federal judge has grudgingly granted the federal government a ninth delay in responding to lawsuits challenging a plan to open nearly 2 million acres of public land in Wyoming, Utah and Colorado to oil shale development. U.S. District Court Judge John Kane granted the request last week, extending the deadline to July 16. But Kane said he's not inclined to any more delays, noting that the two lawsuits were filed nearly 17 months ago. Federal officials made the latest request because of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The lawsuits by conservation groups claim the federal government broke environmental laws by curtailing public comment and failing to consider impacts on wildlife or the potential effects on ...
