We hear about the impacts of increased carbon in our environment, but what about the increases in biologically available nitrogen? Nick Bouskill will be discussing the important, but often overlooked, nitrogen cycle at the California Native Plant Society.
This is not a Wild Equity event, but it relates directly to Wild Equity's work in the East Bay communities of Antioch and Oakley. (http://wildequity.org/sections/10) The California Energy Commission has approved five power plants within a radius of about 1 mile of the Antioch Dunes National Wildlife Refuge. The nitrogen emissions from the power plants harm local communities by contributing more ozone pollution and soot to an area already disproportionately overwhelmed by pollution and transform the chemical composition of the dunes.
