The Bay of Bengal region will undergo a dire and drastic transformation unless urgent action is taken to deal with the disastrous effects of global warming, climate change experts have warned.

We’ve all encountered some of the many ways and reasons people deny climate change: But this was the coldest winter on record! Lots of scientists don’t believe in it! The whole thing is a liberal hoax! Leave
it to Jesus! How does a few degrees even matter? Fortunately NASA is here to help us. . .

If you know a Wood Duck in the Bitterroot Valley who is looking for just the right spot to raise a little brood, but is maybe in too much of hurry or too tired to think of any new excavation and is looking for one of those popular pre-made boxes, you should send her to the Teller Wildlife Refuge. And if she’s tired of the usual, hum drum, plywood construction found in so many other places, she will be thrilled to find the option of some new “deluxe” nesting boxes located next to Thomas Pond.

[Round Robin] By Jennie Miller Imagine circling the Earth twice on foot while drinking your weight in flower nectar each day. That’s the human equivalent of what Calliope Hummingbirds do, by wing, twice a year, in their migrations between Washington and Mexico.
Calliopes pass through my region, but they are rare here. What's interesting is that checklists by citizen naturalists have made an analysis possible that could never have been done by ornithologists alone.
Researchers at the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF) have developed a county-by-county map of the United States' "lower 48" that tells a story of land cover and development across the nation, and could provide a framework for...
Useful summary information for many questions. What's happened to all the animals? Look at the land-cover changes shown here.
The North Atlantic between Newfoundland and Ireland is practically the only region of the world that has defied global warming and even cooled. Last winter there even was the coldest on record - while globally it was the hottest on record. Our recent study (Rahmstorf et al. 2015) attributes this to a weakening of the Gulf Stream System, which is apparently unique in the last thousand years. The whole world is warming. The whole world? ...
This is a good discussion of the science. The comments are enlightening. Highly recommended.
The Arctic ice cap hit its winter peak earlier this year, but scientists say the summer season will paint a better picture of climate change....
It's been a warm winter, atmospheric and oceanic circulation is changing, and we are knee deep in toxic wastes. It will indeed be an interesting summer, and probably a sad one too.
"Scientists call it Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC). But we may as well think of it as the heartbeat of the world ocean system. And when that heartbeat begins to slow down, we'd best sit up and start paying attention."
From the post: "New video produced by climate hawk Peter Sinclair and featuring top scientists Stefan Rahmstorf, Michael Mann, and Jason Box, issues warnings about an observed disruption to ocean circulation due to water freshening in the North Atlantic. This is the kind of work I mentioned last week in my KPFA interview. The kind that should be showing on major network news every single night. Since that probably won’t happen, I urgently ask you to spread this video, together with its critical information, as far and as wide as possible."
