#Marine : les chinois ont un sacré sens de l’humour :

C’est dans ce contexte de tension entre les deux géants asiatiques que le #Japon a dévoilé mardi un porte-hélicoptères qui représente le plus gros navire militaire construit par Tokyo depuis la seconde guerre mondiale. Ce navire de 248 mètres baptisé « Izumo » est encore en construction à Yokohama (sud de Tokyo). Son coût devrait atteindre quelque 900 millions d’euros et il pourrait être opérationnel après 2015. La #Chine a réagi en se disant « préoccupée par l’expansion constante des équipements militaires du Japon ».

Le problème, c’est que l’inverse fonctionne très bien également.

TERRA 807: Inches of Snow and Tide

The Olympic Peninsula is a land of snowy mountains, rocky tidepools, and crashing waves. Explore one small patch of coastline at low tide and you can find tiny sea stars, camouflaged fish, and eighty-year-old anemones. Fantastic seaweeds cling to wave battered rocks, and carnivorous sea stars stalk mussels and unsuspecting clams. These areas also serve as a rich natural resource for the four local tribes of Native Americans. Climate change could change all of that. Measuring snow depths on Hurricane Ridge and ocean temperatures in the intertidal zone, scientists share their hopes and concerns for the future of a rugged and incredibly diverse ecosystem.

TERRA 524: The Barge That Wouldn't Budge

In March 2009, a group of NOAA scientists and marine debris experts gathered on the shores the Potomac River to tackle a problem left ignored for the last 25 years. Abandoned during the construction of a local yacht club since the 1980's, a barge stuck in the mud poses potential environmental and navigational hazards. Yet, no one knows who left it, and no one has been able to remove it. NOAA and the Alice Ferguson Foundation have banded together to sort the problem out. This first installment traces the mounting effort through the silent perspective of the The Barge That Wouldn't Budge.

TERRA 519: Disappearing Catch

For centuries the Maryland Blue Crab has defined a way of life for Chesapeake Bay Watermen. Now this resource, which was once so plentiful, is declining in numbers and is threatening a way of life that has defined the Chesapeake Bay for centuries. Can scientists and Watermen find common ground and institute sensible regulation, or is it too late to save this Disapearing Catch?

Today almost no one goes there to swim, not since a pod of 200 harbor seals took up residence on the sand. Should La Jolla return the beach to use by people or make it a seal preserve? Sealed Off!!! takes a quirky look at this unusual controversy through the eyes of some of the people most intimately connected to it.

TERRA 203: ABALONE ODYSSEY PART TWO

First Nation inhabitants have depended upon marine resources for thousands of years in the Pacific Northwest. Now an important ecological and cultural symbol of sustainability, the pinto abalone, is being pushed to the brink of survival. But this community is responding - combining traditional knowledge, modern science, and old-fashioned elbow grease to challenge the forces of extinction. This grassroots effort is an inspiring micro-model for what could ultimately be done on a global scale.
