The KNP Complex fire reaches the edge of the Giant Forest, which is home to about 2,000 giant sequoias.
The so-called KNP Complex fire, which was ignited by lightning earlier this month, reached the western edge of Sequoia National Park's Giant Forest, home to a group of ancient sequoia trees dubbed the Four Guardsmen. But protection measures including wrapping the bases of the huge trees in fire-resistant coverings kept safe "these national treasures," Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks officials wrote early on Sunday in a Facebook post https://www.facebook.com/SequoiaKingsNPS. The Guardsmen mark the entrance to the Giant Forest, a grove of some 2,000 sequoias.

As electric vehicles (EVs) become the new standard, charging infrastructure will become a commonplace detail blending into the landscape, available in a host of places from a range of providers: privately run charging stations, the office parking lot, home garages and government-provided locations to fill in the gaps. The Biden administration announced 500,000 charging stations to be installed nationally and additional energy storage to facilitate the shift to EVs. Integrating all of this new infrastructure and transitioning requires balancing the traffic on the grid and managing increased energy demand that stretches beyond power lines and storage itself.

The catastrophic wildfires that ravaged Australia during the continent's 2019-20 summer were some of the worst in the country's history. Now scientists have found these blazes may have released far more of the global warming gas carbon dioxide than previously thought, and discovered the first conclusive link between wildfire smoke and major plankton blooms in the ocean. Australia's so-called Black Summer witnessed the burning of roughly 74,000 square kilometers of eucalyptus forests, an area nearly as large as the country of Syria.

Reducing fossil use and increasing renewable energy worldwide are crucial to both sustainable development and fighting climate change. Kevin Frayer/Getty ImagesTwo important global events are coming up that are widely hoped to help address what the United Nations calls the “dual challenge” – fighting climate change and ensuring that poorer countries can develop sustainably.

Royal Dutch Shell plans to start producing low-carbon jet fuel at scale by 2025, in an attempt to encourage the world's airlines to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Aviation, accounting for 3% of the world's carbon emissions, is considered one of the toughest sectors to tackle due to a lack of alternative technologies to jet fueled-engines. Shell, one of the world's largest oil traders, said it aims to produce 2 million tonnes of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) by 2025, a ten-fold increase from today's total global output.
