Another Round: Conservation on a Human-Shaped Planet — Here's another round in what has become a heated, but ultimately productive, conversation on strategies for sustaining the planet's biological integrity as humanity's influence builds.

Study Finds Hurricanes Frequent in Some Cooler Periods — Over the last 5,000 years, the eastern Caribbean has experienced several periods, lasting centuries, in which strong hurricanes occurred frequently even though ocean temperatures were cooler than those measured today, according to a new study.

@RisetoClimate @dotearth 1) You're forgetting geographic variability, as per Donnelly:… 2) More on boulders shortly.

A Postcard From the Pleistocene — Multimedia Photos and audio from the Polaris Project in Siberia. I recently learned about the Polaris Project, a fascinating scientific and educational expedition under way on one of the more remote, unusual rivers on the planet, the Kolyma in eastern Siberia. It is the largest river in the world that is completely underlain by permafrost.

The New York Times — It's only natural for humans to try to sort things - as in the assignment of Hogwarts students to various houses in the Harry Potter books and films. There have been a lot of attempts to categorize the varied assemblage of people with strongly held positions on the scope of, and threat from, the building human influence on the climate system.

A Rocky First Review for a Climate Paper Warning of a Stormy Coastal Crisis — On Thursday, I wrote about the rocky rollout, prior to peer review, of " Ice Melt, Sea Level Rise and Superstorms: Evidence from Paleoclimate Data, Climate Modeling, and Modern Observations that 2°C Global Warming is Highly Dangerous."

Genes Reveal Africa's Elephants as 2 Separate Species — Africa's reclusive forest elephants and the herds that trundle across its savannas are as genetically distinct as leopards are from lions, and thus should be reclassified as separate species, geneticists say. The finding, described in the current issue of Science, could prompt a rethinking of elephant conservation strategies, which have long been premised on the idea that all the continent's pachyderms are one species.

Do Old Corals Hint at a Fast Sea Rise? — Paul Blanchon For the last several days, I've been learning a lot about what old coral formations, which reflect the height of seas at different times in the past, might say about future sea levels in a warming world.

Still love definition of climate crisis from... — Still love definition of climate crisis from Richard Somervile, winner of '15 #AGU communication award: As in section of my '07 AARP Mag. piece on @IQ2us climate debate:Richard C.J. Somerville, 66, a veteran University of California, San Diego, climatologist, attacks the "not a crisis" position. "[A crisis] does not mean catastrophe or alarmism," he says.

Whiplash Warning When Climate Science is Publicized Before Peer Review and Publication — Who wins when a scary, but edge-pushing new climate study led by one of the world's most prominent climate scientists makes headlines before it is either peer reviewed or published? Everybody, and nobody. Let me explain what I mean.

The New York Times — A few days ago, I had the pleasure of taping a segment of this fall's season of Star Talk with the astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson (and the science-loving comedian Maeve Higgins) beneath the Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History.
