Audubon's May-Jun Issue Now Online

Here’s what our special Global Warming issue includes:
 
Stories by two of our senior editors: Alisa Opar writes about the possible consequences of the Arctic melting, and Susan Cosier profiles two teenage boys studying rosy finches, a project they carry out in memory of their friend.
 
Ted Williams writes about the 48,000-square-foot Marcellus shale, one of the largest gas deposits in the United States. “Because the technology to extract the gas is younger than the 21st century,” Williams writes, “no one yet knows how to do it without simultaneously sacrificing the forests, waters, fish, and wildlife that, over time, are worth far more than any finite energy fix.”
 
Also in this issue, Janet Marinelli covers assisted migration in Florida, Michelle Nijhuis writes about renewable energy, Kiera Butler describes a new generation of young Christians preaching the green gospel, plus much more.
