The really strange cao vit gibbon (see video above) has received a new protective reserve in Vietnam — good thing, too, because there are just 110 left. Read all this morning’s hot green news below:

  1. How do monarch butterflies migrate to the same location in Mexico every winter? Through a clock in their antennae, says a new study in Science. (Hat tip: Wired Science.)
  2. Can a film change a country’s attitude to climate change? The new movie “The Age of Stupid” (about a man in the future bemoaning why humans didn’t address climate change) has spawned a new movement to cut carbon emissions in the UK that’s really gaining traction in the British government, reports Triple Pundit. (Read more about the 10:10 Campaign.)
  3. What’s the new Los Angeles when it comes to greenhouse gas pollution? Denver, says a new study in Environmental Science and Technology, reports The Daily Green. (L.A. came in second. Barcelona, my favorite city, came in last — because everyone there walks everywhere…when they’re not running you down with a scooter.)
  4. Two of the strangest (and most endangered) primates around have received new protective reserves in China and Vietnam, reports Mongabay.
  5. How can we keep Earth sustainable? Don’t cross nine planetary “boundaries” (such as ocean phosphorus on levels and species extinction rates), says a new study in Nature. Bad news: We’ve crossed three already. (Hat tip: Journal Watch Online.)
