Nature in Danger: The Red Wolf

Red wolves, commonly mistaken as coyotes, have stunning copper and gray coats. They live in packs composed of one alpha male and one female, along with their litter.

New York approves enviro-friendly B Corps; Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Illinois could be next

B Corps, or benefit corporations, have arrived in the state of New York.
Earlier this month, the legislature passed, and Gov. Cuomo signed, a bill (S.79-A) approving this new type of corporate structure in which companies promise to have a positive impact on the environment and watch out for the rights of workers and communities.
State officials then immediately registered 13 companies as B Corps on Feb 10, the same day the law was enacted.

NASA photo captures Earl, Danielle and a third storm spinning across Atlantic

This satellite “Photo of the Day” from NASA satellite GOES-13 taken on Monday shows Hurricane Danielle skirting off to the north, while compact and ominous Hurricane Earl heads toward the U.S. (notice Earl’s eye is visible), and a tropical depression forms behind Earl (lower right).

But that was so Monday. Earl, as we now know, is even more muscular and threatening, imperiling barrier islands and beaches from the Carolinas to New England. For the lastest on Earl, we flip the channel to NOAA, where photos show how the storm’s winds are already battering North Carolina.
