Links to Make You Laugh and Cry

This post is by Sheryl Canter, an Online Writer and Editorial Manager at Environmental Defense.

Here are some links to interesting articles I ran across recently:

Six Degrees – Review from RealClimate of a new book that soberly assesses what will happen to the world at one degree increase in temperature, two degrees, etc. It’s alarming – but not alarmist.

The People We Have Been Waiting ForNew York Times Op-Ed by Thomas Friedman that will make you laugh and cry. It ends on a wonderfully optimistic note (in case you’re feeling depressed about climate change).*

*There’s one small inaccuracy in Friedman’s piece. He says climate change will lead to “colder cold spells”. Actually, as the IPCC states, there are “warmer and fewer cold days and nights over most land areas.” The idea that weather will swing to colder as well as warmer extremes is a common misunderstanding.
