This summer's carbon emissions from Arctic wildfires were a third higher than last year's previous record levels, research suggests. The atmospheric monitoring service Copernicus says the fires which blazed during summer's heatwaves are a cause for concern. This spells double trouble: not just CO2 emissions from the burning vegetation, but also from the peat which is naturally a store for CO2.

The Pentagon has ordered the military's independent newspaper, Stars and Stripes, to cease publication at the end of the month, despite congressional efforts to continue funding the century-old publication. The order to halt publication by Sept. 30, and dissolve the organization by the end of January, follows the Pentagon's move earlier this year to cut the $15.5 million in funding for the paper from the Defense Department budget. The letter, signed by 15 senators — including Republicans and Democrats — also warns Esper that the department is legally prohibited from canceling a budget program while a temporary continuing resolution to fund the federal government is in effect.
