Cool Green Morning, defined: 1) We find the most interesting 5 green links every weekday morning. 2) You look at them. What could be easier? Begin your half of the bargain below…

  1. Adapting to climate change will cost the world at least $100 billion per year by 2030, according to a new estimate by former IPCC co-chair Martin Parry and colleagues, reports Climate Feedback. (That’s twice the estimate the United Nations calculated in 2007.)
  2. Check out this camera-trap image of a snow leopard in Afghanistan, courtesy of DotEarth.
  3. Good news for sea turtles — the Bahamas has extended full protection to all turtle species in its waters, where five of the world’s seven sea turtle species live, says EcoWorldly.
  4. Is that LEED building really green? The New York Times reports that while LEED certifies design and construction, the designation doesn’t extend to the energy-efficient performance of that building. The Vine explains why that’s important.
  5. How can burning a gallon of gas in your car result in nearly 20 pounds of CO2 emissions? Treehugger’s Ask Pablo does the math and finds…it adds up.
