The level of the most important heat-trapping gas in the atmosphere, carbon dioxide, has passed a long-feared milestone, scientists reported on Friday, reaching a concentration not seen on the earth for millions of years.
Allan Savory: How to green the world’s deserts and reverse climate change
Not at all what I expected. For just over half his talk, Savory discusses the issue of desertification, which many of you are familiar with. He (like many others) makes the case for restoring these deserts.
Then, in the last six minutes, he completely blows everyone’s minds. You just gotta see it.
“If you thought 2012 was unusually warm where you live in the U.S., your suspicions have been confirmed.

Global warming skeptic now agrees temperatures are rising
The study of the world’s surface temperatures by Richard Muller was partially bankrolled by a foundation connected to global warming deniers.
Muller’s finding of a warming world is no different from what mainstream climate scientists have said for decades. What is different is who is behind the study. One-quarter of the $600,000 to do the research came from the Charles Koch Foundation, whose founder is a major funder of skeptic groups and the Tea Party movement.a
