read
Magical time-lapse photography by Tsuneaki Hiramatsu

When digital photos look too good to be true, they usually are. That's the assumption, anyway. So when we first ran across these incredible images of fireflies sparkling in the Japanese night, we assumed they had been touched up by a heavy hand. Not so, apparently. The man behind the camera -- Tsuneaki Hiramatsu, a hobby photographer from Okayama City -- used long-exposure and time-lapse......read more

read
The Editorial Board of The New York Times

One year ago, on June 1, President Trump dismayed the world by announcing his intention to withdraw the United States from the global Paris climate agreement. He has since shown no inclination to ease up on his efforts to nullify virtually every initiative the Obama administration took to limit greenhouse gases from power plants, cars, trucks, and oil and gas operations.

For Logging's Crimes, Tougher Punishments

read
By Richard Conniff for The New York Times

I HAVE loved wood and the smell of sawdust ever since I was a child and got to wander among the open sheds at the local lumberyard. But for years now I have had a sick feeling every time I shop for almost anything made of wood. The prices are often unbelievably good, but then I notice the words “Made in Vietnam,” or some other country where illegal logging is demolishing forests at......read more

The Climate Science Low Down

read
Tales Of A Warmer Planet By Curt Stager For The New York Times

It's a mistake to think the climatic effects of our carbon emissions will be over within a few decades or centuries. Our intergenerational responsibilities run much deeper into the future. In this new Anthropocene epoch, the “Age of Humans,” we have become so numerous, our technology so powerful, and our lives so interconnected that we are now a force of nature on a geological scale.......read more

It has been the driest four-year period in California history — and the hottest, too. Yet by almost every measure except precipitation, California is doing fine. Not just fine: California is doing fabulously. In 2014,......read more

read
Robb Willer for The New York Times, Gray Matter

PALO ALTO, Calif. — ACCORDING to a recent poll, a large majority of Americans, and roughly half of Republicans, say they support governmental action to address global warming.

A busy commercial illustrator finds time to paint awesome pictures

These paintings from Antoine Corbineau give credence to the theory that some of the most interesting art begins life as a distraction from commercial projects. Corbineau, an illustrator and designer, has worked on a bunch of gigs for big commercial clients, often in a visually busy, map-like style using multiple media and featuring patchworks of color, texture and typography.

It's Time for America to Talk about the Price of Water

How many wake-up calls do we need?

This summer, a 90-year-old water pipe burst under Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, sending a geyser 30 feet into the air and a flood of troubles over the UCLA campus. Raging water and mud trapped five people, swamped 1,000 cars and flooded five university buildings — blasting the doors off elevators and ruining the new wooden floor atop the Bruins’ storied basketball court. As the......read more
