Ramps, an endangered Appalachian springtime delicacy
Ramps are a perennial species of wild onion.Hardyplants at English Wikipedia, Public domain, via Wikimedia Commons. After a long cold winter, the first fresh vegetables of the season are as much a treat as the warmer temperatures and longer daylight hours. In our Appalachian forests one of the first spring greens is a relative of the garlic family known commonly as Ramps. Also called bear-leeks, this unassuming little plant plays an outsized role in both mountain culture and mountain ecology.

“Why is farming important? Wow.” A new farming reality TV show hopes to address misinformation.
"Is farming important? Wow” says a farmer in the opening statement of a trailer for a new reality farming show. Indeed, wow. The fact that we need to ask that question, provides a startling image of the times we are living in. Listening exclusively to the propaganda of mainstream news institutions, many would actually believe that farming is what is killing our planet. In fact, the New York Times recently released a documentary entitled Meet the People Getting Paid to Kill Our Planet. The short opinion documentary grossly skewed the facts about farming while simultaneously promoting oil and gas companies as less harmful. The publication caters to a mass of 'city dwellers' but has also become a household name in news. Misinformation such as this is a contributing factor to what's killing our planet.
Catching Sunlight in a Bottle, a Big Step for Renewables
German scientists can now store the Sun’s energy in a jar and release it when needed as clean-burning hydrogen gas. (Thomas Kinto from Unsplash) Solar energy has a big problem: we can’t control the Sun. It obviously doesn’t shine at night and the amount of its energy reaching the Earth’s surface is affected by the weather and time of year. So energy generated through solar farms, residential solar installations, etc. is unable to provide a consistent, reliable stream of electricity to power the grid. The solution is to store excess solar energy and release it as needed, but current battery technology is woefully inadequate to do so on a meaningful scale.
