Is DiCaprio the next Al Gore?

Al Gore has done an amazing job raising the awareness of global warming to a level that it rightly deserves. The global warming deniers who frequent DSBlog can say all they want about Gore, but most of what they say only makes them look more idealogical and desperate than they already are.

What Gore has done, is communicate in a very compelling way, to a very large number of people, the overwhelming scientific evidence telling us that global warming is happening, human activities are to blame and we should all be very concerned about the outcomes.

Now it looks like another heavyweight in the art of communication will be joining Gore's efforts in a serious way. Check out Leonardo DiCaprio's trailer for his new film, The 11th Hour, debuting this month at the Cannes Film Festival.

Monbiot goes state-side

A few months ago we reported an exclusive story here on DeSmogBlog about the troubles renowned UK columnist and author, George Monbiot, was having with finding a publisher to launch his book Heat in the United States. 

Monbiot told us at the time that U.S. editors had all said a version of the same thing: “Americans aren’t ready for it.”

Well it looks like South End Press, a publisher with a penchant for provocative literature, has decided that the American public is “ready.” Monbiot's book is now available in the US.

Humans to Whales, Birds, Turtles: "Get Lost!"

Birds, whales and other migratory creatures are suffering from global warming that puts them in the wrong place at the wrong time. A warmer climate disrupts the biological clocks of migratory species including bats, dolphins, antelopes or turtles, said Lahcen el Kabiri, deputy head of the Convention on Migratory Species. He added: “They are the most visible warning signs – indicators signalling the dramatic changes to our ecosystems caused in part by climate change.”

What's the carbon-weather looking like today?

Okay, you can't check today's “carbon-weather” but you can see what it was in the past. Check out this site created by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) that provides a global perspective of carbon uptake and release.

The image above is the North American carbon weather on January 1, 2005.
