End Of The Year Tab Dump - Sea Level Rise & Climate Change

It's the end of 2012 and my folder full of tabs / bookmarks that I've been meaning to share is over flowing.  The end of a year seems like a good enough reason to get them all out there for your perusal and it doesn't hurt that it will help get me up over the 100 post threshold for 2012 either.

We're gonna do this categorically, sort of at least, some other links ended up on twitter; check the sidebar for those or @hcoppola.

So we didn't get through everything on new year's eve, I had better things to do what can I say?  Which means the dump will continue to start off 2013.

This is the whole mess of stuff that I thought you should know about but didn't get around to sharing that deals with Sea Level Rise and Climate Change; we're probably in some serious trouble here folks...

To start things off the NC State Legislature pretty much attempted to disbelieve sea level rise is happening.

Several groups and studies found that sea levels are rising quite a bit faster than previously thought or predicted. 

In the wake of the second devastating mutant late season hurricane to hit the NYC area there were at least a few calls to reconsider coastal flood insurance and living in flood zones.

Once again arctic sea ice melted at a new record rate and extent.

Ezra Klein highlighted the debate on climate and energy between proxies from the Obama and Romney campaigns.  It's still a disgrace that the candidates didn't talk about this problem at all.

Bill McKibben went long on the terrifying math of global warming.

Bloomberg BuisnessWeek ran the headline "It's Global Warming, Stupid"

New Scientist offered seven reasons that climate change is "even worse than we thought" and the New Yorker ran down the top ten signs of a warming planet.

Climate change is driving wild animals into our cities (at least in part).

In February it will have been 28 years since the last time we had a global monthly average temperature that was below normal.

And of course none of this is good news for the ski industry.

We're almost done, I promise.
