What 35,000 Walruses Tell Us About Global Warming
Pacific walruses, who live in the Bering Sea during winter, require floating sea ice to meet their survival needs, using them for rest in between journeys to forage for food, such as clam, snails, and worms, as well as for giving birth and caring for their young. But as the oceans warm, this sea ice is receding, especially near coastal areas, forcing these walruses to take to the beach for resting and foraging, according to an explanation from the NOAA.

Our web host purchases “green energy tags,” from a certified green energy supplier who pumps 100% equivalent energy back into the power grid based on the web host’s total energy consumption from traditional sources. This, in effect, eliminates the CO2 emissions from the power that they would have purchased from a non-green energy source.
