  • A Roadmap to Climate-Friendly cars: 2013 (Climate Central) A report attempting to calculate full life-cycle environmental impact of manufacturing and driving electric cars, but ending up with a slanted picture saying Hybrids are cleaner than Electrics.
  • Gigantic Antarctica glacier melting at alarming rate Russian scientists studying the Mertz Glacier in Antarctica expected the glacier to extend over 500 feet below the ocean surface. This glacier extends over 40 kilometers out over the ocean, and of course would normally have ice extending well below the surface.
