A 1959 Lincoln Continental . . . Hybrid? | Power Line
This is one of those irresistible stories: Neil Young’s hybrid-electric car broke down the other day while he was driving to . . . an environmental jamboree. Heh. Double-heh. But what’s this? His car is a 1959 Lincoln Continental? That cost him $1 million to trick out?

Flashback: Environmentalists 'exaggerated' threat to tropical rainforests from global warming | Mail Online
The threat to tropical rainforests from climate change may have been exaggerated by environmentalists, according to a new study.

Researchers have shown that the world's tropical forests thrived in the far distant past when temperatures were 3 to 5C warmer than today.

They believe that a wetter, warmer future may actually boost plants and animals living the tropics.

The findings, published in the respected journal Science, come from a study of pollen trapped in rocks during a natural period of global warming 56.3million years ago.
