They have a page in their monthly magazine giving some quick facts about our planet and its people. I'm jammed up today so will only post 2 quick items, but hope to post more shortly:
+++France bans fracking+++
---For the first time in 150 years, a gray wolf is sighted in Kentucky. It is promptly shot.---
The connection to Ultrarunning? You gotta care about such stuff, for the sake of the backcountry.
