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

A Optimistic Realist Tours Earth's Age of Humans — When I spent a week in Ithaca, N.Y., as a visiting professor at Cornell earlier this fall, I finally got to meet Diane Ackerman, the author and poet best known for a string of lyrical and popular books on natural history and human nature.

@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.
