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 540: Feeding the Problem

Feeding the problem explores the historical and ecological impacts of the century-old artificial feeding program for elk in Western Wyoming. What began in 1912 as a gracious effort to save the Jackson Hole elk herd from harsh winters, shrinking habitat, and dwindling forage, has morphed into the largest wildlife feeding program in the United States. This biological experiment has created a petri dish for wildlife disease and is now one of the most contentious, fiercely debated issues in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.

Die taktische Ausrichtung der Urheberrechtslobby geht m.E. von dem Kalkül aus, dass aufgrund einer  unablässigen legislativen Beanspruchung der Entscheidungsträger auf nationaler und internationaler Ebene (Zensursula, Elena, Galloreport, Swift, ACTA, Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act, etc. ICANN), sich die Rechtslage auf den diversen legislativen Rechtsfindungsprozessen höchst unübersichtlich und für die öffentliche Meinung kaum nachvollziehbar gestaltet. Das Ergebnis sind in der Öffentlichkeit als auch in den Gremien und Parlamenten unübersehbare Kompetenzlücken, die  der Möglichkeit zu wie auch immer gearteter Manipulation in der Gesetzgebung Tür und Tor öffnet.

Was sich hierbei schlussendlich erwarten lässt,  ist  ein löchriges Urheberrechtssytem sowie ein x-beliebig definierbares Recht auf Meinungs- und Informationsfreiheit, das sich je nach Land und Mehrheitsverhältnissen beliebig formen und verformen lässt und somit mehr denn je ökonomisch den Intentionen der Film-, Musik- und Softwarebranche, aber eben nicht nur dort, sondern nicht minder den langen Wunschlisten auf zensierende Einflussnahme durch die jeweiligen politischen Mehrheits- und Machtverhältnisse (siehe u.a. Rundfunkänderungsvertrags-Regelung und die hier thematisierte us-amerikanische Initiative) entgegenkommt.

TERRA 451: Cascading Effects PREVIEW

Examining the sublime landscapes of North Cascade, Mount Rainier, and Olympic National Parks, researchers shed light on emerging indications that climate change is real and predict how warming temperatures will affect the natural resources and timeless beauty of the region. As glaciers melt and the winter snow-pack decreases, what is the fate of the aquatic ecosystems and cold water fish that depend on runoff during the hottest and driest parts of the year? How will enormous amounts of unstable sediment exposed by retreating ice-sheets on Mount Rainier affect the roads and infrastructure of that park and beyond? Will pine beetle infestations and larger forest fires become widespread in the approaching future?
