Yes, Plinius, Joan also posted about it: "Iceland Experiment Successfully Turns CO2 Emissions into Rock"
Found this on Facebook - I hope it's true.
THE COAL INDUSTRY IS BANKRUPT
"Appalachian coal baron Don Blankenship once strode West Virginia like a colossus. The former CEO of Massey Energy shaped state politics, removed inconvenient judges, and micromanaged his dozens of coal mines to extract the maximum amount of coal with the least possible expenditure on safety for his workers—all while presenting himself as their champion. "Washington and state politicians have no idea how to improve miner safety," he told miner families at a 2009 Labor Day picnic. "The very idea that they care more about coal-miner safety than we do is as silly as global warming."
"On April 5, 2010, a huge coal dust explosion at Massey's Big Branch mine in West Virginia killed 29 miners. It was the deadliest U.S. mine disaster in 40 years. Blankenship insisted that the disaster was "an act of God," but juries found that Blankenship and his minions were to blame, and that their relentless focus on production and profit and apparent indifference to the health and safety of their miners had created the conditions that caused the explosion.
"Three of Blankenship's underlings pleaded guilty and were sentenced to jail terms ranging from 10 to 42 months. A fourth was convicted of lying to investigators and destroying evidence; he was sentenced to three years. Blankenship himself was found guilty of a misdemeanor charge of conspiring to violate mine-safety standards, which carries a maximum penalty of one year in prison."
My heart goes out to those mining families and their seemingly helpless position. I wish some really good community developers would go down there and organize the workers. They could turn their lives around by holding people accountable and then developing a product that is environmentally sound, profitable to build, and would create a decent future for the workers and their families.
Joan, the joy of reef tourism is becoming a thing of the past. You were lucky to visit when it was good.
Oh! How awful!
I snorkeled in a Carribean coral reef, and it was the most exciting time I can remember. Turtles, yellow-fins, blue fish, star fish, on and on! with the ebb and flow of the ocean swales, kind of a rocking experience, while watching sea life swim all around me.
I forgot the caption.
The first image shows healthy coral; the second bleached (these coral polyps are pink); then dead (a thin film of algal overgrowth, not recovery).
You could just save the link (image source which I always provide) to call it up when you want to share or watch.(I'm ignorant about MacBook.)
Coral this year:
Ruth, I tried to get Global Temperature Change (1850-2016) into my photo library, unsuccessfully. I've sent off a note to MacBook Pro to get instructions. If anyone else is familiar with Mac's gifs, I'd appreciate a response.
See monthly temperatures approaching dangerous limits.
