United States: Jerry Brown readjusts his stand on the environment vs. business

Climate Ark - 1 January 2014 - 1:00am
LA Times: When Gov. Jerry Brown spoke to a crowd of beaming environmentalists and renewable energy advocates at the launch of a solar farm last year, he turned heads by praising another form of fuel: oil. It was a surprising pivot from the man credited with helping to usher in the modern environmental movement as California's governor nearly four decades ago. Back then, Brown enacted the nation's first energy-efficiency standards, signed strict anti-smog laws and blocked offshore drilling. But in his...

Politics Is Key to Avoiding Global Warming Catastrophe

Ice sheets of West Antarctica are warming fast

Climate Ark - 2 January 2013 - 10:32am
New Scientist: THE ice sheets of West Antarctica are warming much faster than we thought, suggesting swathes of it could melt and send global sea levels soaring. Climatologists have struggled to work out whether Antarctica is warming, and how quickly, because it has few weather stations and the records from some are incomplete. David Bromwich of Ohio State University in Columbus and his colleagues filled in the gaps for one key station using statistics and data from a climate model. They conclude that temperatures...

After Hurricane Sandy, Climate Change Is Back on the Political Agenda

Climate Ark - 2 January 2013 - 10:13am
InsideClimate News: This was the year climate change vanished from the political agenda--and then suddenly reappeared, after Hurricane Sandy shook the country. It was just a few years ago that President Obama flew to Copenhagen to rescue faltering climate-treaty talks amid bipartisan calls for global warming action. But in 2012, there wasn't a single congressional proposal or hearing on climate legislation. Neither was there mention of climate change on the presidential campaign trail, or in the debates for the first...

United Kingdom: Video: Seal who swam 50 miles along flooded river set to draw crowds

Independent: A seal believed to have swum more than 50 miles (80km) along a flooded river to a nature reserve is expected to become a visitor attraction. The mammal, thought to be a common seal, has become a YouTube star after being filmed hopping into a lake at the Fen Drayton Lakes Reserve in Swavesey, Cambridgeshire. It is believed to have made its way up the River Ouse from King's Lynn in Norfolk aided by floodwater. Graham Elliott, of the RSPB, said the sighting was "surprising". The seal has...

Study: Climate Change Is Having Significant Impact on Biodiversity

U-T San Diego: Plants and animals are shifting their ranges and life cycles in response to climate change, creating clashes between unfamiliar creatures or mismatches between animals and their food sources, according to a new national biodiversity report. The analysis could expand the scope of conservation efforts, which for 40 years has focused predominantly on habitat changes, local wildlife experts said. “Climate change has this incredibly large footprint of effects,” said Megan Owen, conservation program...
