New island appears off coast of Germany the size of 25 football pitches | Mail Online
Tidal actions unrelated to global warming or other earthly phenomena have created the island.
The New Nostradamus of the North: "Top green blog": "We're committing mass murder on a daily basis"
...we’re committing mass murder on a daily basis and almost no one is paying any attention or working to solve the problem.---

... without a livable climate, without the basics of human life, we die.
And so do our children.
And so do our grandchildren.
Climate change Earth's air: Be the 'other guy' who takes steps to protect Earth's air -
I admit it. I talk about climate change. Yes, in Florida, where people are largely in denial, stuck in neutral, and doing nothing. Mostly when I bring it up, even environmental types tune me out. It's obvious. Their eyes glaze over. We're in trouble, folks.
You must spring for those solar panels — electric and thermal — and stop making excuses about expense or roof issues.

If you're broke right now, figure out how to do it as soon as you can. But there are a lot of homeowners who are not broke and think solar is great when the price is right. No, the price is pretty good now with creative financing, and there is every reason not to put it off.

Hudson Bay sea ice and trapped killer whales | polarbearscience
Lyne Morissette is right to say that killer whales should not be in Hudson Bay at this time of year but she is wrong to say their plight is a consequence of global warming (and so is Peter Ewins of the World Wildlife Fund, quoted here). The killer whales got trapped because the sea ice formed in northern and western part of the Bay before it froze in the east – as it has done for more than 30 years – and they simply stayed too long. The sea ice charts for Hudson Bay tell us that the ice extent for early January 2013 is above normal, not below, and the sequence of ice formation this winter has been quite normal.
