Pursuing progress on a finite planet at @dotearth and The rest? Family, friends, songs:

'Extreme Whether' Explores the Climate Fight as a Family Feud — If you're in the New York metropolitan region, I encourage you to see " Extreme Whether," an pioneering and brave effort by playwright and director Karen Malpede to use theater to explore the clashing passions around human-driven global warming and our fossil fuel fixation.

Is There Room for Agreement on the Merits and Limits of Efficient Lighting — There was quite a bit of pushback after The Times ran " The Problem with Energy Efficiency," an Op-Ed article by Ted Nordhaus and Michael Shellenberger arguing that LED lighting, while deservedly resulting in a Nobel Prize for inventors of the underlying technology, was not an energy panacea.

A Passing: Rick Piltz, a Bush-Era Whistleblower — Rick Piltz, a gutsy whistleblower who revealed a pattern of politically torqued rewriting of climate science reports during the first term of President George W. Bush, died early Saturday morning after a fight with cancer.

Bush Aide Softened Greenhouse Gas Links to Global Warming — A White House official who once led the oil industry's fight against limits on greenhouse gases has repeatedly edited government climate reports in ways that play down links between such emissions and global warming, according to internal documents. In handwritten notes on drafts of several reports issued in 2002 and 2003, the official, Philip A.

Never Mind the Anthropocene — Kate Raworth, who works at the intersection of economics and environmental sustainability, isn't happy with the composition of the Anthropocene Working Group, which is weighing whether this age of rising human influence on Earth's operating systems is generating a new geological epoch.

Does the Anthropocene, the Age of Humans, Deserve a Golden Spike? — BERLIN - I just participated in the first face-to-face meeting of the Anthropocene Working Group, a subset of a branch of the International Commission on Stratigraphy examining whether humanity's growth spurt (in both numbers and resource appetites) has caused sufficient change to Earth systems to leave a discernible trace in layered rocks that will build and endure far into the future.

David Roberts Questions Naomi Klein's Capitalism-Focused Climate Quest — I interviewed the writer Naomi Klein back in 2011, when she used an article in The Nation to lay out the anti-corporate theme that's now the centerpiece of her new bestseller, " This Changes Everything - Capitalism vs. The Climate."

Nature Talks Back, and Sounds a Lot like Edward Norton — I'm catching up with the " Nature is Speaking " education push by Conservation International, featuring a set of videos in which actors give voice to the oceans, rain forests and other beautiful and bounteous facets of the planet's sheath of life.
