Tiny marine algae can evolve fast enough to cope with climate change in a sign that some ocean life may be more resilient than thought to rising temperatures and acidification, a study showed.

For oil-rich Norway, it's not easy being green

"Maybe the most embarrassing thing is that Statoil likes to use their investments in tarsands as a further way of building its reputation." Ever since it struck oil under the North Sea in the late 1960s, Norway has tried to find a balance between profiting from oil and natural gas and protecting the environment in a country as rich in beauty as it is in fossil fuels.

America disavowed nuclear energy due to anti-science beliefs and lobbying by environmental groups and adopted dirty coal in its place.
