Oman's mountains may hold clues for reversing climate change 13.4.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Wadi Abdah, Oman • Deep in the jagged red mountains of Oman, geologists are searching for an efficient and cheap way to remove carbon dioxide from the air and oceans — and perhaps begin to reverse climate change.

As the world mobilizes to confront climate change, the main focus has been...

College football: Notre Dame defense getting a makeover from new coordinator 13.4.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
South Bend, Ind. • Coach Brian Kelly says visitors won’t be able to decipher much about Notre Dame’s defense this spring. With new coordinator Mike Elko aboard, that’s kind of the point.

Letter to the editor: Still standing 8.3.2017 Steamboat Pilot
On Friday, March 10, at 4:30 p.m., supporters of Steamboat Stands with Standing Rock will hold a demonstration outside the Steamboat Springs Post Office. On March 28 at 6 p.m., we will show two documentary films and hold a silent auction at the Chief Theater to raise money for the Standing Rock Legal Defense Fund.

Our local efforts will be held in conjunction with a larger action in Washington, D.C., where leaders, members and supporters of Tribal Nations from across the country will meet with ...
