Udall Continues Fight for Bark-Beetle Mitigation

By Senator Mark Udall If a tree falls in the woods, does it make a sound? How about an entire forest? Every spring and summer, the bark beetle epidemic in Colorado’s forests takes on added dimensions. Rather than the green and gold we’ve used as backdrops to family portraits and souvenir postcards, receding snows reveal new swaths of rust-red forest that have succumbed to bark beetles.

Questions we SHOULD be asking about Libya

A response to Fareed Zakaria’s show GPS on CNN April 3, 2011. Dear Fareed, Your insistence, along with many others, on the juicy question: is there Al-Qaida in Libya, is deplorable.
