Ocean algae can evolve fast to tackle climate change: study

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. Evolution is usually omitted in scientific projections of how global warming will affect the planet in coming decades because genetic changes happen too slowly to help larger creatures such as cod, tuna or whales.

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.

Environmental Scientists Make The Environmental Case For Fracking

A strange thing happened during climate change policy debates: Advances in hydraulic fracturing - fracking - put trillions of dollars' worth of previously unreachable oil and natural gas within humanity's grasp, and using it led to reductions in CO2 in the United States. America disavowed nuclear energy due to anti-science beliefs and lobbying by environmental groups and adopted dirty coal in its place.

Criminal Charges Dropped Against Two People Because They Were Fighting Climate Change

In doing so, they committed several crimes, according to local prosecutors, who sought to lock them up for two years.

List of excuses for 'the pause' in global warming is now up to 52

Updated list of 52 excuses for the 18-26 year 'pause' in global warming 52 excuses for the 18-26 year statistically significant 'pause' in global warming , including recent scientific papers, media quotes, blogs, and related debunkings: 46) We don't have enough data of natural climate cycles lasting 60-70 years to determine if the "pause" is due to such natural cycles: "If the cycle has a period of 60-70 years, that means we have one or two cycles of observations. And I don't think you can much about a cycle with just 1-2 cycles: e.g., what the actual period of the variability is, how regular it is, etc.
