This is a remarkable paper. I encourage everyone to consider its implications, especially anyone who is "on the fence" about what is at stake for all of us in the climate change discussion. Important to remember: sooty plumages of Horned Larks mirrors what is happening in the delicate tissues inside our lungs. People have to decide if we want lungs that reflect sooty larks or larks whose feathers reflect air less impacted by soot. All of this is in our hands. These larks are just canaries in the coal mines.

What soot-covered darker bird specimens can reveal about environments of the dirty past. This is timely, in the wake of Scott Pruitt's announcement yesterday that the Obama-era "war on coal" is over. Looks like we have not learned a thing from the past.
