BP this week metaphorically hung a “mission accomplished” banner over the Gulf of Mexico ecosystems that it wrecked when the Deepwater Horizon oil well blew up and spewed 200 million gallons of oil in 2010. 
BP announced this week that "active cleanup" of the Gulf is over. But the Coast Guard is actually in charge, and it says "not by a long shot."

Red, orange, yellow, and blue will mark coastal and near-coastal areas where storm surges are anticipated during a hurricane. The different colors will be used to show the anticipated depth of approaching flash floods.

There’s no one way to be a woman on a bike, just as — WAIT FOR IT — there’s no one way to be a human on Planet Earth.
Eff gender expectations of being sporty or sexy or both; just get your feet on the pedals!

Cities that are serious about making it safer to bike are now going after a tougher crowd: the 60 percent of the population that actually fears death on two wheels.

But this is different from all those past delays. This is a brand new delay — and it might push the final determination past the midterm elections. 
The administration is giving federal agencies more time to weigh in on the pipeline. That means a decision will probably be pushed past the midterm elections.

If you had the power to name a living creature, would you use that power wisely? Would you name it after one of your heroes?

If it was a cute dog, I would name it my phone number, frequently taking long walks. Dogs can be chick magnets. Imagine this: "Ohhhhh he is so cute what is his name?" BOOM.

Like our future under climate change, slavery was a human-designed global tragedy that lasted centuries, displaced tens of millions of people, and reorganized the wealth and demographics of the planet.
When a volcanic eruption threw the global climate into chaos two centuries ago, slavery surged. We can expect more such humanitarian crises in our climate-changed future.
