Worms that are caffeine freaks. Shrinking polar bears. An Australian war on cane toads. It’s your green news — we just bring it to you every weekday:
- Billions of California red worms are now helping convert one coffee producer’s waste pulp into fertilizer. (CleanTechnica)
- Decreasing sea ice is causing reduced polar bear size and the numbers of cubs that make adulthood. (Conservation Maven)
- While we talk about green energy, demand for coal just keeps increasing worldwide (sigh, cough). (Dot Earth)
- The CO2 reduction pledges made at Copenhagen in December? New study says they’ll lead to a global temperature jump of at least 3°C by 2100. (Yale Environment 360)
- Australians are so murderously rageful at invasive cane toads, they might be killing native frogs, too. (Journal Watch Online)
