# Environment / Climate / Interior / Infrastructure / Global Salmon die in droves as climate change burns Canada: Thousands of salmon have been found dead in rivers and creeks on the province’s Pacific Coast amid severe drought in the past two years.

Emperor penguins flee melting ice: Last year was catastrophic for Emperor penguin (Aptenodytes forsteri) breeding in Antarctica because of the record-low extent of winter sea ice. Satellite images revealed that penguins abandoned all but one of their breeding colonies in the Bellingshausen Sea. “This one event is not going to doom the species,” says seabird ecologist Annie Schmidt.

In late July, as parts of the southern U.S. approached 30 days of temperatures exceeding 100 degrees, President Biden took to the podium to announce a plan to mitigate the impacts from extreme heat.
