Oyster-lovers beware ... this delicacy could become a rarityAs an ardent foodie, I was concerned to see the results of a new study last week. The study warns that oyster production may decline due to rising carbon dioxide levels. Researchers found that higher levels of carbon dioxide in ocean water made the water more acidic and reduced the ability of oyster larvae to develop shells. This impaired the ability of oysters to grow at a normal pace, and led to a decline in yield.

March 2012: The warmest March since 1895In many ways it's been a beautiful spring, but something about it just hasn't been right.

"I'm betting on the future"Every year we give billions of our hard-earned tax dollars to oil and gas companies that continue to pollute our planet even as we pay ever-higher prices at the pump. We pay high prices at the pump, while they receive billions in taxpayer dollars. The President couldn't have said it any better, "It's like hitting the American people twice."

Is the soundtrack of spring changing in your backyard?My spring soundtrack is early, but in other parts of the country it has been just plain weird. The Great Backyard Bird Count reports that 2012 was "the most unusual winter for birds in the count's 15-year history."

In Full Bloom?Earlier this week, I rode my bike down to the National Mall to see the cherry blossoms. I needed to go because I had to see with my own eyes that the trees were blooming on March 19. This is well ahead of the time they normally bloom. Going to see the Cherry Blossoms usually happens near the end of March or beginning of April, not closer to mid-March.
