Bangladesh: Devastating Present, Worse Future?

It is certainly only coincidence that two recent events–the deadly Category 4 landfall of Cyclone Sidr in Bangladesh and the release of the UN IPCC's 2007 synthesis report–have so closely coincided.

But if we take them together–the story of pain and grief in a low-lying region on the one hand; the careful words of scientists on the other–it seems impossible not to attempt a still grander synthesis.

NASA stonewalls another US agency that wants to launch DSCOVR

It has now been several months since the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) formally requested that NASA transfer to them all DSVOVR assets - including of course the spacecraft itself.

Incredibly, NASA has so far completely ignored colleagues from another US government agency that want to make use of a $100 million spacecraft that NASA themselves stated last year they have no intention of launching.

Gore and Bush to Meet Again

Get elected president and go down as the worst in history. Don't get elected president and win the nobel peace prize and the hearts of millions around the world. Karmic, poetic but also bittersweet.

The Huffington Post reports that Bush will welcome Gore to the White House on Nov. 26th during an event to honour Nobel Peace Prize winners.
