"After historic rains, Atacama, Chile is exploding with vibrant wildflowers. Here's a softer side to the disruptive weather phenomenon known as El Nino: an enormous blanket of colorful flowers has carpeted Chile's Atacama desert, the most arid in the world. The cyclical warming of the central Pacific may be causing droughts and floods in various parts of the world, but in the vast desert of northern Chile it has also caused a vibrant explosion of thousands of species of flowers with an intensity not seen in decades."

View past and continuing Animas River coverage here. Josh Stephenson / Durango Herald. The Animas River in Colorado has turned yellow after being contaminated with three million gallons of wastewater that leaked from a gold mine. Let's pray for the Animas river basin & ecosystem, for Durango, and for the Navajo farming communities downstream who depend on that river water; let's pray the EPA restores the Animas River.

Scientists have issued a new warning to the world’s coastal megacities that the threat from subsiding land is a more immediate problem than rising sea levels caused by global warming.
A new paper from the Deltares Research Institute in the Netherlands published in April identified regions of the globe where the ground level is falling 10 times faster than water levels are rising - with human activity often to blame.
In Jakarta, Indonesia’s largest city, the population has grown from around half a million in the 1930s to just under 10 million today, with heavily populated areas dropping by as much as six and a half feet as groundwater is pumped up from the Earth to drink.
The same practice led to Tokyo’s ground level falling by two meters before new restrictions were introduced, and in Venice, this sort of extraction has only compounded the effects of natural subsidence caused by long-term geological processes.

A new interactive project from Google, NASA and the US Geological Survey.
Since the 70s, NASA and the U.S. Geological Survey have been amassing satellite images of our planet as part of the Landsat program, revealing a record of change over time: cities expanding, lakes and forests disappearing, new islands emerging off the coast of rising metropolises like Dubai. These historic pictures show stunning change across the earth's surface, in both our natural environments and our man-made ones.
Three decades of global change can be viewed digitally in a recent project between NASA, the USGS, TIME, Google, and theCREATE Lab at Carnegie Mellon. Landsat images taken between 1984 and 2012 have been converted into a seamless, navigable animation built from millions of satellite photos. As Google wrote this morning on its blog: "We believe this is the most comprehensive picture of our changing planet ever made available to the public."
Visit the link for more details and to view a few of the GIFs Google has created showing some of the most startling pockets of change...

Climate change is rapidly heating up lakes around the world, threatening freshwater supplies and ecosystems across the planet, according to a study spanning six continents.
The study found that lakes are warming an average of 0.61 degrees Fahrenheit each decade. That's greater than the warming rate of the oceans or the atmosphere, and it can have profound effects, the scientists say.
At the current rate, algal blooms, which ultimately rob water of oxygen, should increase by 20 percent over the next century. Some 5 percent of the blooms will be toxic to fish and animals.
Emissions of methane, a greenhouse gas 20 times more powerful than carbon dioxide, will increase 4 percent over the next decade. "Lakes are important because society depends on surface water for the vast majority of human uses -- not just for drinking water, but manufacturing, energy production, irrigation and crops," said paper co-author Stephanie Hampton of Washington State University. "Protein from freshwater fish is especially important in the developing world."
