And if you are looking around that park you see what stands on the corner of the roof across the street from where they died: a new 5G mast, where they had done a test,…”

The U.S. District Court in Montana saved the area’s grizzly population from a trophy hunt that was scheduled to take place this fall in Wyoming and Idaho, in which as many as 23 bears could be have been killed. The hunt would have been the first to take place in the continental U.S. since 1991.

Failure to do so, they warn, could spell doom for many species, perhaps including our own.

As The Canadian Press noted, “The agency has already announced plans to phase out the third pesticide in all outdoor uses, meaning it can’t be sprayed or used to pre-treat seeds before planting.”

7 Things We’ve Learned About Earth Since the Last Earth Day

When Senator Gaylord Nelson (D-Wisc.) founded Earth Day in 1970, his hope was to make the environment a political issue in an era where US rivers caught on fire and thick smog choked cities.

Here are some things we’ve learned about our amazing planet since the last Earth Day.
