See that big “climate change” in our tag cloud in the left column? That means more of our posts touch on climate change than anything else. Case in point: Today’s Cool Green Morning, which brings together prehistoric coral, Sarah Palin, the EPA, bird migration and claims of misleading TV ads in one big climate-change mosh pit. (Please practice safe moshing when reading our blog.)
- The Big Wave: Study of prehistoric coral fossils indicates that ancient climates warmer than today’s produced drastic jumps in sea levels — up to 10 feet in 50 years, reports Dot Earth.
- Look Who’s on the Climate Change Train Now: Alaska Governor Sarah Palin says that climate change is hurting her state and that we need to transition to low-carbon fuels (like the abundant natural gas in Alaska) and then renewables. (Hat tip: Environmental Capital.)
- See-Through Green? Marc Gunther says environmental groups like Environmental Defense and Blue Green Alliance are creating misleading TV ads implying climate legislation will create hundreds of thousands of new employment opportunities. (And he’s a greenie.) (Hat tip: Environmental Economics.)
- Climate Change Squeeze Play: The EPA is ready to release its finding that greenhouse-gas emissions endanger public health, according to numerous sources. But The Vine says the immediate effect will be to pressure Congress to do the regulating of carbon emissions.
- Fly, Robin, Fly…and Keep Flying: A new report says global warming is forcing some bird species to migrate longer distances in search of suitable habitat…which increases their risk of death on the journey.
