NAAMES is the first NASA Earth Venture-Suborbital mission focused on studying the coupled ocean ecosystem and atmosphere using ships and aircraft simultaneously. Plankton ecosystems of the global ocean profoundly affect climate and life on Earth. NASA's ocean color satellite record tells us that these invaluable ecosystems are highly responsive to climate variability, with changes in ocean plankton production impacting food (e.g., fish), uptake of atmospheric carbon dioxide by the ocean, and ocean emission of climate-regulating aerosols.
Learn more at our blog: http://climate.nasa.gov/blog/2439.
A five-year NASA Earth mission will study phytoplankton and their far-reaching effect on climate.

Open source’s inherent flexibility maximises IT value, says Mikael Norberg, CTO at Sweden’s Social Insurance Agency (Försäkringskassan). Thanks to free software licences, information technology can be used effectively. Last year, Försäkringskassan completed its transition to open source in its data centre in Sundsvall, “driving down costs while increasing IT value”, the CTO says.

"A study of 249 parent-child pairs distributed across 40 states and found that while children ages 10 to 17 'were really concerned' about the ways parents shared their children's lives online, their parents were far less worried. About three times more children than parents thought there should be rules about what parents shared on social media."

"Don't post anything about me on social media without asking me."
The first babies of Facebook are now preteens, and they are not happy with the digital record of their lives created by their parents.

If you thinking about Carbon offsetting, doing it with CDM and getting CER's directly from UN's page is probably the best option. Prices ranges from 0.5-5 USD / tonne so it's very cheap, by lots of extra!

Critics of renewable energy have mocked the Energiewende, claiming that it has led to an increase in coal power and related CO2 emissions in Germany. But Conrad Kunze and Paul Lehmann of the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research – UFZ show that this is a myth. German coal generation and CO2 emissions rose not because of but in spite of the Energiewende. They would have been even higher if Germany had not phased out its nuclear power and embarked on its remarkable renewable energy path. “There is no dark side to the Energiewende”.
Critics have claimed the Energiewende has led to an increase in coal power and related CO2 emissions, but Conrad Kunze and Paul Lehmann show this is a myth.
