    British and Indian ministers met last week at the “UK-India Energy for Growth Dialogue”. If fossil fuels were discussed at the event, and they must have been for they are of overwhelming significance to India, one would never guess it from the UK government’s official statement.

    Ross McKitrick and John Christy have an important new paper out in Earth and Space Science.

    Rising sea levels don’t have to spell doom for the world’s coastal wetlands. A new study suggests salt marshes and other wetlands could accumulate soil quickly enough to avoid becoming fully submerged — if humans are willing to give them a little elbow room. The new study builds on previous work that suggests rising seas […]
