Kevin Knoblach, President of the Union of Concerned Scientists, on why climate action matters now

Kevin Knoblach for Huffington Post: When President Obama called for Congress to "pursue a bipartisan, market-based solution to climate change" in his State of the Union Address, adding that he'll use his executive authority to act if Congress won't, legislative handicappers would be excused if they scratched their heads.

Not that we needed it, but here's some more proof that Iceland is the the most photogenic place on Earth.

Weekly links: Surfrider celebrates 150th victory, photography heads undersea, and Russian nature art is nuts.

Shouts out to Jim Moriarty and Surfrider Foundation. In 2005, the coastal conservation group set a goal for 150 "coastal victories" by 2010. They defined a coastal victory as “a decision made in favor of the coastal and ocean environment that results in a positive conservation outcome, improves coastal access, or both.” On December 1, they nailed it. Kudos, Surfrider. (via......read more

Shawn Traylor takes a day away from his farmbox cooking odyssey to plant his very own Russian-style garden.

Exhibition by talented Korean artist/designer to open in Brussels next month.
