On our radar this morning: more bad news for elephants.

  1. 89 elephants have been slaughtered in Chad (and ivory passed $2000 a kilogram on Asia’s black market). (Aljazeera)
  2. John Kerry pushes for an Antarctic Ocean Reserve in what he calls a “living laboratory.” (National Geographic)
  3. Ethanol’s promise and production is fading in rural America. (The New York Times)
  4. Wildfires already? Colorado braces itself for an early start to the season. (Grist)
  5. Some like it hot — really hot. Especially this man who braved 2,000 degree lava flows to take some amazing photos. (Treehugger)
