A new study estimates that nearly half of the world’s known flowering plants are threatened.

Scientists built an AI model using plants they know are threatened or safe, then used it to estimate how many others are threatened as well.

A revealing article on the headwinds facing the transition to #sustainable #green-energy.
From the article:

1. #Wind and #solar stocks are declining due to higher costs of raw materials and slow supply response.
2. #EV chargers and copper mining, critical for the energy transition, face demand uncertainties and reluctance in investment, and
3. Despite government subsidies, #renewable energy sectors struggle with high costs and interest rates, indicating a slower and more expensive transition than anticipated.

This is the problem with entrusting matters of such dire importance to #capitalism -- especially in an age of resource scarcity. As I say in my pinned toot:

**Capitalism is little more than an ideological hangover produced from a time long past when low hanging fruit was everywhere for the taking and people thought it would never disappear.**

That quote has deeper context than most suspect. I penned it years ago shortly out of law school after taking a Wildlife Law class from the, now deceased, Professor Dale Goble. He literally wrote the book on the #EndangeredSpecies Act. There he introduced me to the reason species have, historically, been driven to #extinction -- new technology + capitalist opportunism:

Gun powder killed the mega-predators. Whales? Spear gun. Passenger pigeon? Net guns. I could go on. But then we invented the petroleum economy, and in the opportunistic race for economic growth the decline has quickened by means of the collateral damage caused by #habitat degradation. Which, brings me to my point ---

The ideology that is capitalism was built around gluts. It cannot exist without low hanging fruit to fuel the #consumption #orgy necessary to get past the bottleneck of widespread consumer adoption. We are seeing the problem in stark outline today. Without #monopoly in the resource extraction sector, generating the necessary momentum to survive the capitalist "valley of death" is nearly impossible.

I conclude, there must first be an ideological transition away from the hangover that is capitalism, if we ever want to transition sustainable green-energy. **The fruit is gone, folks. If we ever want it back, capitalism won’t take us there**

Today the U.S. Fish & #Wildlife Service removed 21 species from the #EndangeredSpecies Act...

...because they've been declared extinct. Planet #Earth has officially lost:

- 10 #birds (8 from #Hawaii);
- 8 mussels;
- 2 #fish;
- 1 mammal.

“Federal protection came too late to reverse these species’ decline," said Service Director Martha Williams. "It’s a wake-up call on the importance of conserving imperiled species before it’s too late.”

Read their names (I've made you a table below).

Look up a picture.

Take a moment to think about how much more #biodiversity loss we will accept.

Then act.

Environmentalists condemn Australia’s ‘woeful record’ after 48 plants and animals added to threatened species list

“This many species being added to the list in one go is a sign of widespread ecological collapse,” Tim Beshara of the Wilderness Society.

“Australia has a woeful track record when it comes to protecting our unique animals and plants. We are a world leader in sending mammals to extinction – and it is mostly because we keep allowing their homes to be bulldozed, logged and overrun,” Nature campaigner Jess Abrahams

“We need stronger laws to protect these species and significantly more funding to do it with."

Golden paintbrush is the latest in a string of once critically endangered Pacific Northwest plants that have been brought back from the brink. I'm proud that my county and local organizations like Greenbelt Land Trust are collaborating on this work.

Climate change and development -- especially the construction of large solar farms in the high desert -- has put the genetically distinct western population of Joshua trees under extreme pressure. Despite this, the federal government has not yet given them protection under the Endangered Species Act. However, a new California law will give these iconic plants some breathing room.

Interior Sec. Haaland Supports Digging into #Paiute Massacre Site for Lithium

by Brenda Norrell, Censored News

Raided and terrorized by police, their Eagle Feathers taken, now Interior Sec. #DebHaaland has broken their hearts, imperiling future generations. Ox Sam Camp at the Paiute Massacre Site. The People of the Ghost Dancers

"Interior Sec. Deb Haaland supports digging into the burial places of massacred Paiutes for #lithium -- and said she is doing the right thing.

"AP reports that Haaland, whose department oversees Thacker Pass, said that while she supports
the right to peaceful #protests, her agency is in favor of the mine because 'the need for our clean
energy economy to move forward is definitely important.'

"Haaland told The Associated Press that when her agency inherits a project from a previous
administration, 'It’s our job to make sure we’re doing things according to the science, to the law.'
However, the Interior Department and a federal judge are violating federal laws that protect Native
American religious and burial places; #endangered species and their habitat; and the #groundwater."

One of the things that we noticed about the piping plovers on a May trip to the beach was that they they like to hang out in footprints and other indentations in the sand. This one is hanging out in a footprint.

I think this is a male known as 'Clark Kent', mostly b/c he's got red and blue leg bands.

Over 4000 observations from #gbif of #endangeredSpecies and #criticallyEndanged #species in this updated map.
Google limits each map layer to 2000 records, so this map contains 3 layers.

New pin icons contain animals that resemble each taxonomic class.

"Opening my eyes moves me out of this gentle trance, reminding me that there is no rain; rather, there are millions of monarch butterflies shimmering overhead. Bursts of bright orange are so thick that at times they shield my eyes from the blazing sun." —Romina Cenisio for Atmos

Ben Goldfarb's latest piece in High Country News on the desperate struggle to keep a northern California butterfly species alive is a great read. Species recovery is a hard and thankless enough job with the most charismatic mammal - for insects, it's the same work, backwards and in heels, for less money. The people who do it deserve more features like this. https://www.hcn.org/issues/55.5/south-endangered-species-inside-the-fight-to-save-a-beleaguered-butterfly

Sam Keck Scott: "The only reason the development company was forced to hire a biologist is for a small population of a single species of salamander — the federally endangered Sonoma County population of the California tiger salamander — an animal once prolific in this part of Northern California, now almost entirely wiped out."
