MillerCoors released a sustainability report Wednesday that shows it has cut its water use by percent from MillerCoors water-saving effort focused in Texas, California and Colorado involves using sensors to release just enough water for irrigation, planting native grass to reduce erosion and runoff and keeping a close eye on leaky.

NEGEV DESERT, Israel — FOR generations, Americans and others have been donating trees to Israel through the Jewish National Fund. “Planting a tree in Israel is the perfect way to show you care,” the fund says on its website. An $18 donation buys a tree, turns the desert green, protects the environment and supports an embattled Jewish state. An article entitled "Antarctic sea ice variability and trends, " appeared recently in the Journal of Geophysical Research, and one sentence in the abstract caught our eye stating "The total Antarctic sea ice extent trend increased slightly, from ~ % decade-1 to ~ % decade-1, from the to year period, reflecting.

Even if they don't, they can make up the shortfall through emissions trading. Carbon intensity has been dropping % per decade in the US, even with cheap gas during much of that time.

Ground-water Resources Program.]. Water-Use Trends in the Desert Southwest—– By A.D. Konieczki and J.A. Heilman Abstract The population in the Desert Southwest is among the fastest growing in the country.

In this area, ground-water supplies have been developed, surface-water res ources have been fully a ppropriated, and conservation. The Southwestern United States, also known as the American Southwest, Desert Southwest, or simply the Southwest, is the informal name for a region of the western United tions of the region's boundaries vary a great deal and have never been standardized, though many boundaries have been proposed.

For example, one definition includes the stretch from the Country: United States. Water-Use Trends in the Desert Southwest View full report in PDF (5 MB) By A.D. Konieczki and J.A. Heilman. ABSTRACT. The population of the Desert Southwest is among the fastest growing in the country.

The net result of increasing population, agriculture, and industry over the 20th century is water use in the Southwest estimated to have tota million m 3 (∼ MAF) in This is a decline from a peak of 88, million m 3 in However, through this period, net domestic consumption continued 1950-2000 book by:   Geography and Trajectory of the Southwest Sustainability Challenge.

The spatial and temporal contexts of the Early 21st-Century Drought can be clearly demarcated relative to the climate of the last century (– mean values from ref. 2).From throughmany regions of the conterminous United States experienced elevated annual temperatures (Fig.

Vegetation and land-cover changes are not always directional but follow complex trajectories over space and time, driven by changing anthropogenic and abiotic conditions. We present a multi-observational approach to land-change analysis that addresses the complex geographic and temporal variability of vegetation changes related to climate and land use.

In support of Food-Energy-Water Systems (FEWS) analysis to enhance its sustainability for New Mexico (NM), this study evaluated observed trends in beef cattle population in response to environmental and economic changes.
