Climate Change = War?
It's funny, well not really *funny*, how complete fabrications, repeated frequently enough, slowly develop into something often taken as fact despite all real evidence to the contrary.

The article is really worth the read. It does a great job of ridiculing the "scientists" predicting global war over global warming.

Evidence ofClimate Change
Isolated instances are just that, isolated. But trends can often be drawn from seemingly disparate data. It would be interesting to get Nate Silver to do a model on global warming and climate change.

China to begin executing polluters
The environment is pretty important, but this is maybe a bit much.

Flexible Solar Panels
Researchers at Stanford University have developed flexible, decal-like solar panels that can be peeled off like stickers and stuck to virtually any surface, from papers to window panes.

Very nice improvement. Perhaps if we can cut down on the construction and disposal side effects solar panels can be less of an environmental liability in energy production

Good news for Coral?
While coral reefs are certainly under pressure from more acidic oceans and warming waters, there is some potentially encouraging news here. See the full, but here's the gist:

Researchers have uncovered a pattern of gene activity that enables some corals to survive in higher temperatures. The finding suggests a way to predict how different corals will fare in the warmer waters expected to result from climate change over the coming decades. Such information could help to focus future conservation efforts, the researchers say.

The little rascals are adapting.

    CO2 emissions in US drop to 20-year low
In a surprising turnaround, the amount of carbon dioxide being released into the atmosphere in the U.S. has fallen dramatically to its lowest level in 20 years, and government officials say the biggest reason is that cheap and plentiful natural gas has led many power plant operators to switch from dirtier-burning coal.

What's not discussed here is that this exact same result could have been achieved, in a KNOWN manner with appropriate use of regulation. Force market change through taxation that adjusts as the market adjusts. Then you can control the ups and downs (e.g. if coal producers start dumping coal on the market)

Source of mysterious Pacific pumice 'raft' found, NASA says
On Aug. 9, the HMNZS Canterbury ship observed the floating pumice "island" ? measuring a whopping 300 miles (482 kilometers) in length and more than 30 miles (48 km) wide.

Darn hard to miss that if you happened by. NASA has been on a roll lately.

Mass of volcanic rocks floating off New Zealand
See, even mother nature is trying to jump start the world economy, offering up free and easy to harvest natural resources:

'Pumice is made from lava and water and is very lightweight, so it poses no danger to ships. Pumice has a variety of uses: as an ingredient in concrete, polishes and scrubbing cleaners; to stone wash jeans and exfoliate skin."

apparently NOT related to the above water volcano that just errupted there, but probably an undersea volcano.
