“A Long Short Story,” performed by Andy Revkin on... — "A Long Short Story," performed by Andy Revkin on Phil Shapiro's "Bound for Glory" radio show. More on my songwriting is here. Lyrics:

This is my musical setting of a ghostly poem by C.... — This is my musical setting of a ghostly poem by C. Fox Smith, a remarkable British writer from the early 20th century. Cicely Fox Smith's pen name hid her gender, but the poems, while written in a brawny nautical style, had a sensitivity that would have been hard to find in male writers of that, or any, era.

An 'Ask Me Anything' Chat on Climate Science and Coverage — Life is indeed a long short story, as my paternal grandfather once mused. You race along, doing your work, perhaps raising a family, then turn around and find that a string of decades has unreeled and most of your efforts are likely behind you, not ahead.

Earth's Untallied Biological Bounty, from L.A. Suburbs to Deep Seabed Sediments — The extent and diversity of Earth's sheath of living things continues to surprise scientists, making Howard Ensign Evans's classic 1966 book " Life on a Little-Known Planet " ever more germane.

@BarackObama remarks at White House Science Fair... — @BarackObama remarks at White House Science Fair transcript): Hello, everybody! Hello, hello! Thank you. Everybody have a seat. Thank you. Hello, scientists. (Laughter.) So this has got to be the most fun event of the year. (Laughter.) At least in the top three. And before I go any further, though, I need to lay down some rules.

Some Big Ideas Wash Up One Bulb at a Time — PEOPLE really get around. From the poles to the peaks to the ocean floor, humans have probed and cut and burned and drilled and left their mark. The human assault on the planet usually does not make headlines unless there is a sudden calamity -- giant fires in Indonesia or radioactivity escaping from a nuclear plant in Chernobyl.

Riled Herpetologists Press Obama Administration to Protect America's Salamanders from a Fungal Threat — The herpetologists I've met over the decades tend to be a retiring lot. Explore the website of the Herpetologists' League to get the idea. They hunker down and probe under rotting logs and leaf litter for salamanders or prowl deserts to study tortoises and lizards. Some study ancient specimens in dusty jars.

After 34 Years, His Antiwar Song Is Still Not Out of Style — In 1969, Eric Bogle, a high school dropout, sometime accountant and former singer in a Beatles-style band, emigrated from Scotland to Australia in search of money and adventure. Before the move, he had started writing songs somewhat like the ones his grandfather, a noted Scottish balladeer, used to sing.
