We know the big storms have passed, but here's a great resource for winter weather in Placer and Nevada Counties! ❄️⁠
⁠
The Tahoe-Truckee Community Organizations Active in Disaster (COAD) has a great resource for people living and traveling in these counties. The Connecting Point 201 Winter Weather Page is a great resource for staying informed about winter storms, power outages, road conditions, and general winter safety.⁠

The #NatureGap continues to exist and hurt communities of color nationwide. A new year means a new Congress, and we need our policymakers to work towards closing the gap.⁠

Shanna Edberg, of @HispanicAccess, released an op-ed in @TheHill about the unequal effects of climate change on BIPOC. Climate hazards, pollution, and a lack of upward socio-economic mobility all contribute to the struggles faced by Latinos and other BIPOC groups in a changing climate.⁠

We’ve got some upsetting news about climate change in the Arctic ❄️⁠
⁠
For the first time since 1995, scientists have taken new ice cores from Greenland and found that the island is the warmest it’s been in 1,000 years. All data point to undisputable human-caused climate change.⁠
⁠
Older ice cores didn’t show much evidence of temperature spikes - they were masked by an effect called “Greenland blocking,” a weather condition that keeps Greenland cold. Unfortunately, the data show that Greenland is now close to warming as fast as the rest of the Arctic.⁠
⁠
This photo from space shows the Greenland Ice Sheet, which contains almost 3 million square kilometers of ice. The melting of Greenland's ice would raise sea level by about 7 meters!⁠

Happy Birthday, @AmericanRivers!🎉⁠
⁠
American Rivers, one of our SNAP host sites and member group organizations, is celebrating their 50th anniversary this year!🏞️⁠
⁠
Over the last 50 years, American Rivers has protected thousands of river miles, cleaned drinking water for millions of people, and improved habitat for countless fish, birds, and other wildlife. We are so proud of all the work they’ve accomplished, and can’t wait to collaborate with them to protect and preserve the Sierra Nevada in the future.⁠
⁠
Tomorrow, they are hosting an online gathering to celebrate. RSVP at https://event.on24.com/wcc/r/3999833/CF859C2A7A9097718024798A3B87889E or click our Linkin.bio⁠

Another huge congratulations to our friends @BearYubaLandTrust (BYLT) for a big Sierra Nevada conservation win!🌲⁠
⁠
BYLT, one of our SNAP host sites, just announced that they reached a major milestone and have forever protected over 20,000 acres in Nevada and Yuba Counties. ⁠
⁠
The lands in the Blue Oak Woodland & Rangeland Region make up a critical wildlife migration corridor for many native species. The protection of these lands guarantees their success for all future generations. Way to go BYLT! We’re so proud of you.⁠
