STORY: This perilous route through the Bolivian Andes is marked by narrow lanes, sharp turns and deadly cliffs, earning it the name "Death Road."But after Bolivia opened an alternate route connecting the capital to the Amazon rainforest, funneling most of the heavy vehicle traffic, Death Road saw a return of native wildlife.Guido Ayala is a biologist with the Wildlife Conservation Society.“Today, thanks to work done (the new road) and heavy vehicles don’t use this road, biodiversity has come back to this zone. You can see birds such as hummingbirds, toucans, parrots, blue-throated macaws and many more. You can notice biodiversity returned and it’s very nice to see a place so near La Paz, around 50 minutes away, and you can come here and enjoy this beautiful nature.”The route is still dotted with crosses, a way to memorialize those who died on its path. Between 1999 and 2003 hundreds of Bolivians died trying to navigate it.The alternate route opened in 2007, and the original road is now mostly an attraction for cyclists.The WCS set up 35 cameras along the route to document nature's return.Maria Viscarra is a biologist with the conservation group.“We had cameras ten years after Death Road was closed. We’ve seen a large number of species thanks to the camera traps. It is our methodology. We use intelligent cameras placed in the forest. We identified 14 species, and we’ve spotted two more species, so in total, 16 species and around 98 species of birds. But from many tourists’ and visitors’ accounts, we know about 300 species of birds are throughout the Death Road.”They've snapped images of badgers, musk deer, and jaguars.It's a testament to what can flourish when given room to return.

A number of Elon Musk's plans sound as if they sit somewhere between brilliant and what the bad guy tells James Bond he plans to do while attempting to slowly kill the spy in some elaborate way. It's also fair to say that Musk met with a lot of resistance, perhaps even scorn, when he first went public with the idea of Boring Co. Eliminating traffic by building a tunnel system below ground and filled with self-driving Teslas seems a bit ambitious, if not entirely impractical. The visionary CEO, however, has slowly made that plan a reality, and his Las Vegas vision is only getting bigger.

Charlie Hamilton hasn't irrigated his vineyards with water from the Sacramento River since early May, even though it flows just yards from his crop. Nearby to the south, the industrial Bay Area city of Antioch has supplied its people with water from the San Joaquin River for just 32 days this year, compared to roughly 128 days by this time in a wet year. In dry winters like the one California just had, less fresh water flows down from the mountains into the Sacramento River, the state's largest.
(Bloomberg) -- Chicago’s airports, libraries and water-purification plants will soon be running on 100% clean energy thanks to a deal announced by Mayor Lori Lightfoot to shift all city-wide operations to renewable sources by 2025, making it one of the largest US metropolitans to pledge such a move. The city signed an energy supply agreement with retail electricity supplier Constellation, with an initial five-year term beginning in January 2023, the mayor’s office said Monday in a statement. The
VILLERS-LE-LAC, France (Reuters) - Business for Francoise Droz-Bartholet has reduced to a trickle, just like stretches of the Doubs River straddling the French-Swiss border that her cruise boats usually ply. Water levels in rivers, lakes and reservoirs across western Europe are running low, or even dry, amid the severest drought in decades which is putting stress on drinking water supplies, hampering river freight and tourism and threatening crop yields. She now has to bus clients along the gorge to a starting point further upstream to a point in the river where there is enough water for her cruise boats to navigate.
