read
Art exhibition in Copenhagen explores the interesection of art, culture and global warming.

I recently met Beth Terry, the author of a great blog on plastic pollution called Fake Plastic Fish (the definitive resource on our culture’s obsession with plastics) at a very sobering event – the return from an expedition to Midway Island with photographer Chris Jordan, who traveled there with a film crew to document the “plastic graveyard.” Midway is literally “midway” from......read more

read
As the U.N. negotiations near completion in Copenhagen, American commitments begin to take shape.

Despite the likelihood that the 193 countries at the climate summit will leave Copenhagen with an agreement to finish their work either at a June meeting or at the next annual U.N. conference slated for next November in Mexico City, time is of the essence for President Obama and his congressional leaders to pass a domestic global warming bill.

In Copenhagen's suburbs yesterday, police fired pepper spray and beat protestors with batons outside a climate conference meeting venue.

Last Minute Climate Change Deal Struck

read
For environmentalists, watered down climate change agreement is too little, too late.

BBC News reports that key states have reached what they call "a meaningful agreement" at the Copenhagen climate summit. In the press conference, President Obama called the agreement a "historic step forward". But no one, including the leaders involved, believe it's enough to halt global warming.

China Wrecked Copenhagen Deal

read
UK reporter offers his take on why countries failed to reach meaningful climate change agreement.

Interesting op-ed piece in the Guardian today arguing that China bears ultimate responsibility for failure of the Copenhagen talks. "Copenhagen was a disaster. That much is agreed. But the truth about what actually happened is in danger of being lost amid the spin and inevitable mutual recriminations. The truth is this: China wrecked the talks, intentionally humiliated Barack Obama, and......read more

Reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation.

For the many disappointments of the recent climate talks in Copenhagen, there was at least one clear positive outcome, and that was the progress made on a program called Reducing Emissions From Deforestation and Forest Degradation.

Bono Solves Climate Change

read
U2 singer hums the polluter-pays tune in New York Times op-ed piece.

Never one to withhold his opinion on how everyone should make the world a better place, Irish rocker Bono proffered ten ideas with the potential to change the world in a recent op-ed piece in the New York Times. Among them is the "equal right to pollute" idea, a controversial climate change solution which is a sort of spin on the "cap-and'trade" idea. Says the singer:......read more

ARS NATURA: Romance on Ice

read
21st century artists call forth a new romantic relationship with one precious, melting resource.

When art history books are written about the early part of the 21st century, an entire chapter will likely be devoted to our culture’s newfound romance with ice. The Copenhagen climate talks, though a political failure, nevertheless established an important moment in history – an acknowledgement by the world’s global leadership of one simple fact – the Arctic is melting and may in fact......read more

Mexican Megacrystals Shaped by Climate Change

read
Ancient climate swings responsible for creation of massive gypsum megacrystals in caves near Chihuahua, Mexico.

The massive underground megacrystals discovered in caves in northern Mexico add more proof to the theory that the world's greatest designer is nature itself. In a report published in Earth and Planetary Science Letters, Italian researchers say that extreme swings in the climate of the region (i.e. climate change) are responsible for creating the gigantic crystals (yes, those are men in the......read more
