While a fast-growing body of research addresses social, economic, and behavioral impacts from large-scale energy development for host communities and landscapes, their discoveries are often isolated by disciplinary and geographic boundaries. We invite participation from sociologists, geographers, political scientists, public health specialists, economists, anthropologists, practitioners and other interested parties whose work addresses impacts of new energy development for host communities and landscapes. Please visit http://www.energyimpacts.org to join a mailing list for future updates, and to add your profile to our growing data base of energy impacts researchers and professionals. The conference will be held at Ohio State University, Columbus.

Building a future for the jaguar
In Costa Rica, that national expression has many interpretations, including “Enjoy life,” “Take it easy,” and even “Hello” and “Goodbye.” Yet the literal English translation ("pure life") and touristic understandings of the phrase are lacking in comparison to its use by ticos — the Spanish word Costa Ricans use to describe themselves.

ASU researchers warn of unintended consequence of residential xeriscaping

Shots of sprinklers spattering sidewalks, replete with full addresses. Aerial photos of celebrity homes with lush grounds (Cher, Oprah, Streisand, Kardashian — Twitter’s watching you). “The new class warfare,” one publication dubbed it. Read more.
Are companies listening to Standing Rock? (From GreenBiz.com)

The Purple Pipe: Water reuse soon may play a bigger role in expanding Arizona's water supplies (from Arizona Department of Water Resources)
The “purple pipes” are cute, at least. The famous pipes through which re-used water – that is, treated water that often has worked its way through a community’s sewage system – flows are purple. They are painted an eye-catching purple for a reason. You can guess what that reason is. No one wants to mistake the “purple pipe” water for drinking water. Not, like, ever. Read more.
Do you really value the services nature provides? (From GreenBiz.com)
It’s hard to imagine this happening 20 years ago: A multinational oil company wants to prove the value of using oysters to protect its infrastructure and save the coastline. Oysters saving the day is just one example of how the business community has shifted in how it views nature. Although all companies use air, land, water and biodiversity (what we call natural capital) to support economic growth and create jobs, what’s new is engaging nature as a partner. Read more.
Thought Leader Series: The greatest threat of our time and no one wants to talk about it – Leon Billings and Thomas Jorling
