Manchester four-piece drops new video for potential jam of the year

Continuing the rich Mancunian rock tradition is WU LYF (pronounced "woo life," shorthand for World Unite Lucifer Youth Foundation), the "heavy pop" foursome whose debut LP Go Tell Fire to the Mountain will surely find itself on a bunch of Best of 2011 lists this year (including ours).

Heat Hammers Colombian Coffee

Climate change takes its toll on coffee yields in Latin America.

Say it ain't so. It appears that the latest victim of climate change could be a magical bean we enjoy everyday — coffee. Colombia, one of the world's largest coffee producers, produced three million fewer 132-pound bags of coffee last year than in 2006, and people are starting to wonder if peak production of the Arabica coffee bean is already behind us. Across the planet, climate change is......read more

Investing in Climate Change

Silicon Valley lays a bet on extreme weather insurance for farmers.

With climate change causing not only higher temperatures but also increasingly severe and unpredictable weather events, it's not an easy time for farmers. Around 90% of crops losses are directly related to unexpected weather. Scientists say we can expect plenty more of that "unexpected" in the future — and a group of Silicon Valley investors are banking on it. The investment group, which......read more

Scientists weigh in on the hurricane-supersizing effects of global warming

In the wake of Superstorm Sandy, which left a devastating trail of destruction, power failures and flooding in its wake, people all over are wondering whether the "Frankenstorm" is related in any way to climate change. Has global warming helped create the conditions that make freak storms like Sandy happen? Writing for Climate Desk, Chris Mooney asked a handful of climate scientists this......read more

Hurricanes and Climate Change

Storms likely to get stronger and more frequent, study shows

From Climate Central's Andrew Freedman: Hurricanes are Mother Nature’s largest and most destructive storms. Fed by warm ocean waters and moist atmospheric conditions, about 90 such storms — also known as tropical cyclones — form worldwide each year. With the population of coastal areas growing daily and sea level on the rise, how these monster storms may change as the climate......read more

Losing Our Way in the World

In the wake of tragedy, a Harvard physics professor undertakes to learn navigation through environmental clues

In 2003, John Edward Huth was kayaking off the coast of Maine when a thick fog rolled in and obliterated all sight of land. With no compass, he was forced to use natural clues--wind direction, the sound of waves hitting the shore--to guide himself back to safety. A few months later, he had a similar experience kayaking through fog in Nantucket Sound. The next day, news broke of a......read more

Stormy Weather

The new extreme weather reality gives us a tangible reason to act on climate change

Michael Brune, Executive Director of the Sierra Club, for The Huffington Post: In December 1874, a lean, bearded 36-year-old Scotsman clambered to the top of a towering Douglas fir tree in the Sierra Nevada as a powerful storm swept through the mountains. There John Muir clung for hours, swaying in the wind and delighting in "the profound bass of the naked branches and boles booming like......read more

Connecting Extreme Weather and Climate Change

Climate scientists take on the 'grand challenge'--and none too soon

Bill Chameides for The Huffington Post Whenever an extreme weather event occurs these days, the question almost inevitably asked is: Was it caused by global warming? For years, the less-than-satisfying scientific response went something like this: We don't know; even though global warming will increase the likelihood of extreme events, directly linking a specific event to global warming is......read more

Why climate change deniers flail in a cold snap

Jeff Schweitzer for the Huffington Post: With the precise predictability of an atomic clock, climate change deniers break out like a bad rash with irrational exuberance each time we see a snow flake. With the onset of winter's cold each year we can look forward to the reliable appearance of Skepticana deniacus, an increasingly popular bird of prey that feeds on ignorance and fear. With the......read more
