In the late 1990’s, Jane Lapiner and David Simpson began to dedicate the work of their theatre company, Human Nature, to the all-important subject of climate change. Clearly the future well-being of the planet and human society was increasingly dependent on the health of the natural world and especially on that of the climate. By that time, world average temperatures had risen to the point where the future was seriously in question. It has only gotten hotter since.
Their first show specifically on global warming was a broad, reverent comedy aimed at pointing out the ironies and absurdities of the efforts to save society from destruction due to the runaway burning of coal, oil, and gas. We live in a culture deep in denial of the painful truth – that we are heading rapidly towards oblivion. What better way to deal with such a grave danger than comedy? Thus, Human Nature presents What’s Funny About Climate Change?

Combating the spread of sudden oak death is an important is very important to us at the MRC. Recently, Lisa Hintz has incorporated knowledge from discussions with Wallis Lee Robinson and Chris Lee into the following article about symptoms of sudden oak death. Here is an excerpt:
“Starting in early summer of 2021, UC Cooperative Extension and Cal Fire made a sampling effort in several north coast counties to associate observed symptoms with responsible pathogens. By November, 66 samples had been collected and apparently pathogenic organisms isolated from Del Norte, Siskiyou, Humboldt, and Mendocino Counties, and about half of them (30 samples) had been sequenced and identified. Of these 30 samples, 17 were affected by Tubakia californica, four by Diplodia corticola, one by Diplodia mutila, three by Biscogniauxia mediterranea, one by another Biscogniauxia species, and five by Diaporthe species. Other potential pathogens were occasionally isolated, such as Cladosporium sp., Paratubakia sp., and Apiognomonia errabunda (on leaves). On some batches of samples, secondary pathogens or saproptrophs were mostly isolated, suggesting that more primary pathogens may have initially been responsible but that isolations had not been conducted quickly enough to detect them.”
