Dodging the Roadkill: The Sturgis Chronicles – Part 3

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – It was Monday and we started towards Sturgis, where we would check into the Iron Horse Inn later that afternoon.  After our ride through the Badlands, our next stop would be Wall, South Dakota.  The home to the famous Wall Drug Store.

Leading up to my trip, all I heard from other bikers was, “you gotta go see Wall Drug.”  “Be sure to visit Wall Drug” I was told.  So, that’s what was next on our schedule.  After all, we had seen signs to the place for the last 400 miles or so.

“Free ice water” and “5 cent coffee” is what brought me in.

NASA study reveals Boreal Forest Fires Could Release Deep Soil Carbon

 

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationGreenbelt, MD – According to results from the Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE) funded by NASA’s Earth Science Division, increasingly frequent and severe forest fires could burn generations-old carbon stored in the soils of boreal forests.

Releasing this previously buried carbon into the atmosphere could change these forests’ balance of carbon gain and loss, potentially accelerating warming.

Canada’s Northwest Territories were scorched by record-breaking wildfires in 2014.

The 2014 fires in Canada’s Northwest Territories burned more than 7 million acres of boreal forest, mainly comprised of cone-bearing trees like these jack pines. The fires released nearly 104 million tons of carbon into the atmosphere. (NASA / Xanthe Walker, Center for Ecosystem Science and Society at Northern Arizona University)
