People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is calling for a probe into the deaths to determine if the incident is an indication of wider-spread problems at the zoo.

Comments Off on US coastlines will be flooding 30 times a year by 2050

By 2050, huge areas of the US coast could be subject to more than 30 days of flooding each year, thanks to accelerating sea level rise from global warming. Recent data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association identifies 2050 as the “tipping point” for nuisance flooding, which refers to floods that see water levels 1 to 2 feet above local high tide. The NOAA says these tipping points will affect all US coastlines , and they’ll even be exceeded in many areas.
