    Fires were raging along the coastline of Southern California. Strong Santa Ana winds were grooming the South swell and Lowers was firing. It all went down the second week of May, a memorable week with great waves and very warm weather and clear blue sky's. With an all star crew doing their best to put out the fire, throwing big sprays everywhere, eventually the flames were extinguished.

    • Terra Flamma: Photographing Wildfires at Night

      Hey everyone! My name is Stuart Palley and I am a photographer based in Los Angeles, CA. I am documenting California’s 2014 wildfire season by making long exposures of the blazes at night. Despite their destructiveness, wildfires can be eerily beautiful, and I want to show you fires in a way atypical from standard media coverage. I became interested in wildfire coverage during the 2012 season after photographing my first fire. "Terra Flamma" is a rough Latin translation meaning "earth fire." I am funding the project through Kickstarter.

      • Walter Baethgen on El Niño and Global Agriculture (CC: Español)

        IRI's Walter Baethgen gives an overview of El Niño's potential impacts on global food production. Full transcript is below. For more on El Niño, visit http://iri.columbia.edu/our-expertise/climate/forecasts/enso/ and follow #IRIForecast and #EnsoQandA on twitter. [transcript] This is a year that is likely to become an El Niño year, and many people associate El Niño years with bad years--years of disasters, years of drought. The truth is that during El Niño years you have winners and losers. I am especially interested in the agricultural sector and food security issues--for example, in an El Niño year you have an increased chance of having drought or dry conditions in Australia. This affects, for example, the amount of wheat that is going to be in international markets. It affects the prices of wheat. [El Niño] also gives an increased chance of dry conditions in Indonesia: problems with fires problems for small farmers in Indonesia. But at the same time, it means a high chance of good rainfall say for summer crops in southeast South America. So you have places like Paraguay, Argentina, Uruguay where the summer crops are likely to be good. You have more-than-normal rainfall in those seasons. It's also complicated because, for example, let's take the case of Southeast South America, specifically Uruguay: for winter crops like wheat, if you get a very wet spring that means of course water will not be limiting the wheat fields, but it may increase disease problems, fungus problems. You have higher humidity, higher temperatures. So the key message is that El Niño year doesn't mean one thing, it means many different things. And it means for sure impacts on the international stocks of food. Now that doesn't mean there are only negative impacts in the international stocks. For example, an El Niño year may mean less Australian wheat in the market, but it may also mean more Argentinian wheat in the market. It may also mean for example social problems in northeast Brazil, where the likelihood of drought is increased in El Niño years, but it may mean great harvest of summer crops in Paraguay or Uruguay.

        • National Landmarks at Risk Because of Climate Change

          Learn more at: http://www.eesi.org/briefings/view/052014landmarks The Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI) and the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) held a briefing highlighting the risks climate change poses to landmark historic sites around the United States. This briefing unveiled a new report from UCS which highlights climate threats to the nation's iconic landmarks and historic sites, and details steps being taken to protect these national treasures. The report includes 30 at-risk sites, including places where the "first Americans" lived, the Spaniards ruled, English colonists landed, slavery rose and fell, and gold prospectors struck it rich. Some of the sites also commemorate more modern "firsts," such as the race to put the first man on the moon. Speakers: Martin Heinrich Senator (D-NM) Adam Markham Director of Climate Impacts, Union of Concerned Scientists Download report: http://www.eesi.org/files/National-Landmarks-at-Risk-Full-Report.pdf Jeffrey Altschul President of the Society for American Archaeology Anastasia Steffen Archaeologist, Valles Caldera National Preserve, NM Download Slides: http://www.eesi.org/files/Anastasia-Steffen-052014-FINAL.pdf Walter Dasheno Former governor of the Santa Clara Pueblo, Rio Arriba County, NM Download Slides: http://www.eesi.org/files/Walter-Dasheno-052014.pdf Lisa Craig Chief of Historic Preservation, Annapolis, MD Download Slides: http://www.eesi.org/files/Lisa-Craig-052014.pdf Alan Spears Historian and Director of Cultural Resources, National Parks Conservation Association For the first time in its history, the Society for American Archaeology is calling attention to the damage climate change is causing endangered archaeological sites. Sea level rise, coastal erosion, increased flooding, heavy rains and larger wildfires are damaging archaeological sites, historic buildings, and cultural landscapes across the nation. Cultural resource managers already are integrating resiliency and adaptation measures into their planning process, to protect these sites from climate change impacts. From Mesa Verde to the Statue of Liberty and even modern NASA launch sites, these sites tell the compelling story of human occupation and history in the United States, a history that is increasingly threatened by climate change. A recent National Park Service analysis shows that 96 percent of its land is in areas of observed global warming over the past century. Each year, millions of visitors frequent NPS and other historic sites, creating a large impact on local economies. For example, Hurricane Sandy alone caused an estimated $77 million in damages to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. The Statue of Liberty was closed to visitors for eight months, and the storm cost a local ferry operator 80 percent of its revenue, forcing the operator to lay off 75 percent of its workforce.

            Josh and Elizabeth are both such incredible people. Their wedding was easily the most hilariously unique event we've been invited to shoot! The dried flowers and coffee shop setting were fun and beautiful. Elizabeth looked gorgeous in her playful converse and stunning dress. Josh truly went above and beyond with his surprise after the ceremony, while we were out getting some family shots, Flashbulb Fires came into The 806 and setup for a surprise show that opened with one of Elizabeth's favorite songs by the postal service. I only cried a lot. Thanks Josh and Elizabeth McKee. You are two of my absolute favorite people on Earth and I'm so glad we were able to spend such a special day with you!
