@zady sweater, #KnowYourSource, from sheep to... — @zady sweater, #KnowYourSource, from sheep to shelf. sorayadarabi explains: ~ On Thursday we at Zady launched our first product - .01 The Sweater - a 100% sustainably-produced wool knit, made entirely in the U.S. of A. Online, we document every step of our supply chain through photos and video.

A Farewell to Ice — The latest report on changes in the world's glaciers, which we cover in the newspaper today, is Mass Balance Bulletin Number 9. The take-home message for many parts of the world - from Asia to the European Alps to the Andes - appeared to be, "Farewell to ice."

It's Time for Obama to Tighten Rules on Gas Leaks — Environmental groups with varied stances on the merits of natural gas and the controversial extraction method best known as fracking have endorsed a set of cost-effective steps the Obama administration could take to stanch gas leaks from wells and other gas and oil facilities.

Making the Most of Puberty on the Scale of a Planet — I once used the title " Puberty on the Scale of a Planet " to convey how the human species seems to be going through the same awkward transition we all experience as individuals in moving from often-reckless teen ebullience to the more measured life strategies of adulthood.

NASA CO2 Animation Recalls 1859 Account of the Global Flow of this Gas — A new NASA visualization shows how heat-trapping carbon dioxide from human sources mixes and spreads around the planet, and in so doing recalls for me a stirring 1859 description of the atmosphere written by Matthew Fontaine Maury, widely considered America's first oceanographer.

Malaysia's Prime Minister Says Fast-Growing Nations Have Role in Curbing Warming — KUALA LUMPUR - In the opening talk at a two-day meeting here on Asia's clean energy options, Prime Minister Najib Razak of Malaysia provided fresh evidence of a shift in the longstanding diplomatic tussle over who does what to slow global warming.

Peru Prepares to Host Climate Talks as its Indigenous Forest Defenders Die — Note: I am traveling to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to help run "Energy for Tomorrow," a conference organized by the International New York Times, so comment moderation may be spotty.] The nonprofit group Global Witness makes some valuable points in a new report offering Peru a path to cut the violence on its poorly governed resource frontier in the Amazon.

Righteous Babe Saves Hometown; A Fiercely Independent Folk Singer's Soaring Career Lifts Buffalo, Too — On a bleak, half-shuttered block of Main Street in this struggling post-industrial city, a thriving business bursting with brash sounds and primary colors is literally breaking through walls to keep up with the demand for its product. And it is run by a folk singer with a ring in her right nostril.

An #AskDrH Question on Energy Science for Obama's Science Team — John P. Holdren, President Obama's science adviser, is soliciting questions via Vine, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Here's mine, as submitted via Twitter: The question follows up on a continuing thread here on whether and how Congress and the White House can get serious about invigorating basic scientific inquiry on science frontiers related to energy - a push on basic discovery that is a vital underpinning for innovation in the private sector.

In Joint Steps on Emissions, China and U.S. Set Aside 'You First' Approach on Global Warming — After years of " you first" rhetoric on addressing the unrelenting buildup of climate-warming greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, China and the United States, the world's biggest emitters, agreed in Beijing on Wednesday to intensify domestic steps and international partnerships to rein in their contributions to global warming.
