The world is losing monarch butterflies at a startling rate, as logging, herbicides and other human activities destroy natural habitats. But the biggest threat yet has only recently come into focus. Climate change, with its extreme storms, prolonged droughts and warming temperatures, is poised to eradicate the Central Mexico forest that serves as the butterfly's winter refuge. To save the butterflies, local farmer Francisco Ramirez Cruz and a group of scientists are trying to move the entire forest 1,000 feet up a mountain.

Data collected by scientists throughout the world are now telling us just how much carbon humans have put into the ocean and what that might mean for our future. Research published this week in the peer-reviewed journal Science analyzed more than 100,000 seawater samples worldwide collected from 1994 to 2007 and taken from nearly every corner and depth of ocean. The analysis found the oceans are absorbing about 31 percent of the carbon humans are spewing into the world, helping to significantly lower global temperatures. But that temperature buffering comes at a cost.

They are called painted ladies, and these butterflies are migrating by the millions across California. The migration is nothing new. Painted ladies set off from their wintering grounds in the Mojave and Colorado deserts of southeastern California as winter gives way to spring. They travel roughly the same path every year, flying northwest to Sacramento en route to Oregon, Washington and beyond. What's unusual this year is the number of butterflies making the journey. Scientists say there haven't been this many painted ladies traversing the state since 2005, when the population climbed to about 1 billion. It is a welcome exception to California's butterfly crisis. The number of butterflies in the state has been in decline for decades, reaching historic lows in 2018.

Overall, NASA'a budget proposal is about $500 million short of what the space agency got in 2019, but it represents a $283 million, or 1.4 percent, increase from the 2019 estimate. The focus for 2020 follows Trump's Space Policy Directive 1, which instructed NASA to return astronauts to the moon — and eventually Mars. The budget calls for $363 million to support commercial development of a large lunar lander to carry cargo, and then astronauts, to the surface of the moon.
