ABSTRACT
The article presents information on developments related to environmentalism. The Web site www.nwf.org/globalwarminq/states.cfm. discusses the impact of global warming's effects on wildlife and people in the United States. This Web site also throws light on the solutions being implemented by states and local communities to overcome the growing effects of global warming. Vermont's only national park hosts another distinction: It's the first National Park Service property to be awarded Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification. The National Wildlife Federation has led the certification assessment team for Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park through a partnership with the Rainforest Alliance's SmartWood Program, an independent certifier accredited by the FSC.
