Urban renewal plans see mature trees of great environmental import cut down across Israel, and activists warn of long-term damage

Scientists at the Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory are leading a multi-institution collaboration focused on better understanding the impact that flood events, rising tides and changes in sea levels can have on trees, plants, soil and water.

In the Netherlands, more people are living and working in buildings that float. The amphibious structures are built along shorelines and connected to utilities while gently floating to accommodate rising sea levels and more frequent flooding.
