I am glad I read this article. With every paragraph I learned about another peril to nature.  The last paragraph dealt with the only partial uptick to a Super El Nino, heavy rains along the West Coast in the coming fall and winter.

Everything you ever wanted to know about California's drought but were too afraid to ask.

One of the few by-the-numbers analyses, and a nice positive tone.
I'm still baffled/miffed at how much talk is about cutting residential use. If you cut 100% of residential use, we'd still have 90+% of the water use. Reform has to target agricultural or it's just drops in the bucket.

A chance to add your name in support of including a sugar limit in dietary guidelines:
When it comes to decisions about our health, science must outweigh food industry twisting facts & attacking science. Tell the federal government that 2015 Dietary Guidelines need to follow the science and make an added sugar limit and label a reality.

very cool video of deep sea creatures, some never seen before!
Also a cool method of using real-time video to link to scientists all over the world.

Things you wouldn't connect with eating that alter your body to process food differently.
A growing body of scientific research links substances found in common products to obesity.

Scientists confirm that climate change is stalling a major Atlantic Ocean current, and that could lead to flooding and food shortages.

a win-win proposal by Union of Concerned Scientists
New standards for heavy-duty trucks could help Walmart, UPS, Coca-Cola, and other major companies use far less fuel—with major benefits for consumers and the climate.

Dragon Lizard Caught Playing Leaf Guitar In Indonesia

Aditya Permana, a professional photographer in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, recently captured this once-in-a-lifetime photo of a forest dragon lizard that looks like it’s playing a guitar.

The photographer insisted that he did not manipulate the lizard, telling the Dailymail that he “did not directly photograph the lizard at first, until the lizards feel calm and comfortable around me. I noticed it looked like it was playing a guitar – and it didn’t move at all.“
