Protect the ocean so it can protect us

Our future is tied to the ocean. Its shared seas connect us through food, culture and sport. The home of amazing, abundant life, it’s also a powerful climate solution. Yet the practice of bottom trawling threatens to destroy this precious resource—bulldozing our ocean floor, undermining small-scale fisheries and deepening the climate crisis. Let's end this destructive practice, starting with an immediate ban in marine protected areas and inshore zones.

Here Comes the Rain Again

 /  August 30, 2007 2 Min Read  /  Community

Rainagain2You might have heard stories about the residents of mountain towns doing funny things from time to time. That was us today, here at Patagonia’s Northern Nevada digs. Staring slack-jawed out the windows, running around yelling at each other, spinning in wild circles outside . . . Why? Well, it rained, that’s why.

What’s the big deal about a little rain?  While parts of the country are getting drenched, others are experiencing record dry conditions. Here, we haven’t seen a single drop since June 5th, when we got drenched with a full 0.05 inches of the stuff.
According to the National Weather Service, it’s been the 7th longest dry spell in the town’s history. Want to learn more about your area’s climate history, or just bookmark a cool weather site? Check this site out.
