Stop hoping we can fix climate change by pulling carbon out of the air, scientists warn 23.5.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Scientists are expressing increasing skepticism that we’re going to be able to get out of the climate change mess by relying on a variety of large-scale land use and technical solutions that have been not only proposed, but often relied upon in scientific calculations. Two papers published last week debunk the idea of planting large volumes of trees to pull carbon dioxide out of the air — saying there just isn’t enough land available to pull it off — and also various other strategies for “carbon...

Monarch star Isaac Green is built more like a football player than a distance runner, so when he went to Washington on a recruiting trip last fall and got to watch the Huskies host Stanford from the sideline, Monarch track coach Kent Rieder was sure he would be mistaken for a football recruit. He nearly took a hit from Christian McCaffrey, too.

North Routt community competes for the best chili 20.5.2017 Steamboat Pilot
It’s chili time in North Routt County. Bragging rights are again at stake at the 14th annual Great North Routt Chili Cook Off from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday at Hahn’s Peak Roadhouse. “It’s sort of the first big community event after winter, and it’s still winter,” said organizer Kerri Ann Crocker, who is also the director of the North Routt Preschool. There may still be snow on the ground, but there will be no shortage of North Routt residents and visitors anxious to try varieties of red and green chilis in addition to desserts. This cook-off typically raises about $3,000. “It’s really all about us coming together, eating some chili and getting ready for summer,” Crocker said. Proceeds from the event will benefit the preschool and the Fourth of July fireworks show on July 1 at Steamboat Lake. The show is organized by Jon Davenport, who also makes a good bear chili. “Jon Davenport often has a good chili, and I think it’s a contender,” Crocker said. Dan Bubenheim won last year in the dessert category for his ...

60-year-old Tennessee man loses inner tube while floating without permit on Green River 18.5.2017 Steamboat Pilot
A Tennessee man's inner tube was sucked out from under him due to strong river currents near Echo Park in Dinosaur National Monument late Tuesday afternoon. According to monument staff, the man’s “cheap Walmart inner tube” was part of the issue. The 60-year-old tourist — whose name was not released — was camping at Echo Park with his wife and opted to get in the water several yards up from the campground. Luckily, he was wearing a life jacket when he lost his floating device near the confluence of the Green and Yampa rivers near Steamboat Rock, said Dan Johnson, chief of interpretation and visitor services at the monument. The man suffered no major injuries. "He was basically trying to float from the confluence to where he was camping at the Echo Park campground," Johnson said, adding that the man did not have a rafting permit, as required by the park. When his wife — who stayed on land — saw that he lost his inner tube, she ran to the ranger site at the campground for help. The man was able to swim to ...

In 1962, Rachel Carson warned that pesticides, particularly DDT, would lead to springs without birdsong, as she wrote in her book "Silent Spring." Carson's forecast kick-started an environmental movement and was instrumental in the Environmental Protection Agency's decision to ban the pesticides 10 years later, so her descriptions of deathly quiet did not come to pass.

Flooding disrupts White Rim travel 16.5.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
High water on the Green River has submerged the western part of Utah’s White Rim trail in Canyonlands National Park, potentially stranding visitors touring the famed 100-mile loop popular with mountain bikers and ATV riders.
