Today, the Earth got a little hotter, and a little more crowded.
OO Climate Change Triggers Threats To Marine Ecosystems
A two-way migration of fish species between the northern Pacific and Atlantic as oceans warm could have drastic ecological and commercial impacts, as dramatic as when the Isthmus of Panama was open, thousands of years ago, which also allowed a Pacific-Atlantic exchange.
OO Global Warming Means Heavier Rain, and Snow:
Case in Point, Boston – much warmer than usual sea surface temperatures helped double the local air moisture – and it all came down on Boston and beyond, shattering snow records… ignore the first video, which gets water vapor formation all wrong…
A Good Example of a Bad Science Video: Alluringly Simple — and Wrong
“Why Global Warming Causes Bigger Storms”
Yes, warmer waters means more water vapor and ultimately heavier storms — but the video gets water vapor formation all wrong. When water surface molecules heat up enough to break loose from other water molecules, they go into the air as water vapor. Expanding space between warming air molecules is irrelevant. Minnesota Public Radio, get your science right!
Now, if they had melted blue ice cream on top of the popcorn….

Bringing you the face of climate change daily
A woman collects rainwater as the man-made water crisis grows in Yemen. Heavily dependent on oil revenues, due to dry up by 2017, its exploding population will double by 2035, and is rapidly outstripping its poorly managed and now scarce water supply. Poverty, mortaility, and unemployment are high: no wonder the country is a political mess.
OO The 2 Trillion Dollar Question, asks Clarissa the Solar Panel, is: why do we vote for leaders who fritter away $2 Trillion on climate changing fuels, when we now know there’s a better way that’s far cheaper?
OO The Perfect Medicine for Climate Change: Birth Control, Say Experts – giving more women who want access to birth control to limit their family size – in both rich and poor countries could be a hugely effective way to curb climate change.
OO China Outcompetes US in Clean Energy Investments in 2014
Join the swelling numbers of voters TELLING Congress they’ll vote for Clean Energy candidates here. This is an ongoing campaign (the next Congressional election is in 2016!) so please, spread the word. It’s our way of telling Congress that a strong clean energy voting bloc is out there. This is how YOU can make a difference.
