Today, I saw something I have been waiting 5 years to see from this article in Science Magazine: Study says large-scale solar and wind installations in Sahara and Sahel could supply all of Earth’s electricity needs and then some: Extensive renewables development there would raise local nighttime temperatures while increasing rainfall and growth of vegetation,...

  From the Christian Science Monitor  As Antarctica’s ice shelves collapse, the glaciers they buttress will contribute to sea level rise.
