As John Holdren said in '06 pre @whitehouseostp, a $0.02 tweak in gasoline tax would triple energy RD&D.

The New York Times — Over the weekend, in a " Memo to America" and lots of details released to the press, President Obama set the stage for today's release of the Environmental Protection Agency's final " Clean Power Plan," aimed at meeting the administration's pledges to reduce carbon dioxide emissions.

A Postcard From the Pleistocene — Multimedia Photos and audio from the Polaris Project in Siberia. I recently learned about the Polaris Project, a fascinating scientific and educational expedition under way on one of the more remote, unusual rivers on the planet, the Kolyma in eastern Siberia. It is the largest river in the world that is completely underlain by permafrost.

The New York Times — It's only natural for humans to try to sort things - as in the assignment of Hogwarts students to various houses in the Harry Potter books and films. There have been a lot of attempts to categorize the varied assemblage of people with strongly held positions on the scope of, and threat from, the building human influence on the climate system.

A Rocky First Review for a Climate Paper Warning of a Stormy Coastal Crisis — Update, July 29, 11:30 a.m. | Some climate bloggers, led by "Tamino", have harshly criticized me for thinking I am qualified to post a review comment pointing to studies that appear to contradict the "superstorm" argument in the new draft paper by James Hansen and others. Read about this in the addendum.]

Genes Reveal Africa's Elephants as 2 Separate Species — Africa's reclusive forest elephants and the herds that trundle across its savannas are as genetically distinct as leopards are from lions, and thus should be reclassified as separate species, geneticists say. The finding, described in the current issue of Science, could prompt a rethinking of elephant conservation strategies, which have long been premised on the idea that all the continent's pachyderms are one species.

Do Old Corals Hint at a Fast Sea Rise? — Paul Blanchon For the last several days, I've been learning a lot about what old coral formations, which reflect the height of seas at different times in the past, might say about future sea levels in a warming world.
