How to Manage Fire to Cut Pollution and Slow Climate Change — Here's a " Your Dot" contribution on the many benefits of managing fires in forests, savannah and peatlands - including slowing global warming, protecting threatened ecosystems and reducing noxious palls of haze. It comes from Lindon N.

More Record Highs and Far Fewer Lows — Scientists sifting for trends in record high and low temperatures across the United States have found more evidence of long-term warming of the climate, with the biggest shift coming through a reduction in record low nighttime temperatures. That is a pattern long predicted by climate scientists using computer simulations.

The New York Times — Global warming has of late felt like a new issue, but it's useful once in a while to review the generations-long line of analysis that points to substantial climatic and environmental consequences from rising emissions of greenhouse gases.

U.S. Ocean Agency Warns of Global Coral Bleaching Event — Assessing widespread reports of reef stress along with unusually high sea-surface temperatures, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is warning of a globe-spanning bleaching of corals in coastal waters around the tropics. When stressed by sustained high temperatures, the coral organisms that build reefs sometimes expel the symbiotic algae living in their tissues, causing affected areas to turn white or pale.

Can We Uninvent Suburbia? — There's a fine story in our Sunday Styles section today by Alex Williams examining the environmental costs of suburban life, which evolved around the highway system, cheap oil, and the automobile and now typically consumes several times more energy per person (and thus fossil fuels) than urban living. There's all that driving.

A Korean Economist is Elected to Lead the U.N. Climate Change Panel — Hoesung Lee, a Korean economist who was a vice chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, has been elected chairman, defeating European and American candidates with far more prominent public profiles. Lee is a professor at Korea University in Seoul, specializing in the economics of climate change, energy and sustainable development.

A Top Task for the New Chair of the U.N. Climate Panel - a Communication Reboot — The new chairman* of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is scheduled to be elected shortly at a large gathering of climate scientists and government representatives in Dubrovnik, Croatia. [I'll update the post after the election and press conference.]

Ah the 21st century... My take on a top task for new IPCC chair (when they can vote!):…

Ahead of Paris Climate Talks, a Draft Climate [Agreement][Accord][Pact] Emerges — It's bracket time again in the surreal, but necessary, world of climate change diplomacy. In what counts as progress in preparations for Paris negotiations aimed at forging the first new global climate agreement since 1992, the United Nations secretariat managing the process issued a news release today titled, " First Draft of New Climate Change Agreement Presented to Governments."

Bracketed #cop21 draft climate agreement text sure looks like great @lastweektonight fodder.

Humans Connect Around Rare Lunar Eclipse, But Not Our Rare Earth? — Before saying goodbye to the global blitz of "super blood moon" eclipse photography and chatter (already supplanted by the momentous NASA confirmation of signs that water flows on present-day Mars), I wanted to post a short note I received Monday morning from Deborah Hamon, an environment-focused artist from Marin County, Calif.

Parting #supermoon thought from @DeborahHamon: Humans Connect Around Rare Eclipse of the Moon But Not Our Rare Earth?

Intrstng point @revikin tho I think we do connect re #Nature/Earth: Ppl Connect Over Eclipse of Moon But Not Earth?

From Cheap Oil to ‘#ShellNo’ Protests, a Look at Factors in Shell’s Arctic Retreat — Given the complex array of factors shaping any decision related to energy, it's always wise to consider an Agatha Christie " everyone did it " explanation when something big happens.

Shell ditches Arctic #oil bid. Reason? Low prices + other factors, say Yergin, Smil.… via @Revkin

@NoDirectAction @ivanatsantic 2. Long-term warming clear even with low sensitivity. Hedging against higher rate smart. Downside?

Glad @LeoDiCaprio helping move discourse past 'woe is me' 'shame on you' (both part of landscape but insufficient).…
