"To reach a low-cost, low-carbon electricity system in the West, UC Berkeley energy researchers propose this combo of power sources as one possible solution. A carbon tax (placing CO2 at about $70/ton) could help the West reach a goal of 54 percent of 1990 emissions by 2030, according to their models. (Credit: UCB/James Nelson.)”

Very powerful paintings of polar bears, from painter Sally Linder’s “Approaching a Threshold" series. Linder’s artist statement is a quote:

The polar bear  may be just the canary in the coal mine… If we  can save the polar bears, we  will ultimately save ourselves.

Linder was featured in NRDC’s OnEarth magazine, with images and an interview.

Why climate science hasn’t proved persuasive.

A year in the making, this video pays tribute to a critical scientific and academic figure in postmodern history: the late Climatologist and Stanford Professor Stephen Schneider (1945-2010)

This video was screened before a live audience by Climate One of the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco on Dec 6, 2011 as the introduction to an event honoring Stephen Schneider and presenting an award in his name to Richard Alley, Professor of Geosciences and Associate of the EMS Environment Institute.

Via Science Daily:

A vast network of previously unmapped glaciers on the move from thousands of miles inland to the Antarctic coast has been charted for the first time by UC Irvine scientists. The findings will be critical to tracking future sea rise from climate change.
