CO2 = Pollution. Now What?

dotearth.blogs.nytimes.com — It's nearly official. Carbon dioxide, the bubbles in beer, is a pollutant in the context of the Clean Air Act, the Environmental Protection Agency proposed on Friday. The long-lived heat-trapping gas, while benign in a brew pub, is deemed a threat to public health and welfare through its growing impact on climate and, in the long run, sea levels.

This Winter’s Polar Vortex, from Afar and Up Close

dotearth.blogs.nytimes.com — After walking our dog along the banks of the Hudson River this morning in single-digit temperatures, I went online to put the first deep freeze of our winter here in the Northeast into broader context. (Yes, it is the dread polar vortex.)

Oregon Standoff Ends in Time to Prepare Malheur Refuge for Avian Occupiers

dotearth.blogs.nytimes.com — The #OregonStandoff is over. It was heartening to learn today that the patient, but determined strategy of federal and local law enforcement officials worked, with three of the anti-government trespassers at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge walking out to be arrested and the last holdout coaxed to surrender after hours of YouTube-streamed discussion with the FBI and supporters.

dotearth.blogs.nytimes.com — The writers include Diane Ackerman ("presence"), M. Sanjayan ("empathy"), Elizabeth Kolbert ("luck") and Paul Kingsnorth ("improvisation"). Another is Pete Seeger, whose offering - built around the word "stabilization" - came in the form of an interview, which of course involved music.

What’s Missing at the U.N. Climate Panel’s Meeting on Climate Change Communication

dotearth.blogs.nytimes.com — In a 2011 post on the limits of climate science communication in shifting public policies or personal behaviors, I called myself a "recovering denialist," laying out my reasoning this way: My denial, I said, lay in my longstanding presumption, like that of many scientists and journalists, that better communication of information will tend to change people's perceptions, priorities and behavior.

As Rubio Waffles, Two Floridians in the House Seek Bipartisan Climate Progress

dotearth.blogs.nytimes.com — Given Florida's special vulnerability to rising seas and other consequences of human-driven global warming (which I first wrote about in 1988), it's not surprising that one of the first efforts to break the partisan impasse in the House around this issue has come from two lawmakers from the south end of that state - Republican Representative Carlos Curbelo and Representative Ted Deutch, a Democrat.

Butterflies for Ted Cruz, Determined Foe of Ethanol Mandates

dotearth.blogs.nytimes.com — No matter who prevails as the Republican presidential candidate and who wins the election next November, there may already be a big and enduring win out of this crazy race - for the environment, including ailing monarch butterflies. If butterflies had hands instead of wings, they'd be clapping for Senator Ted Cruz.
