As the World Warms

The editorial page of the New York Times goes enviro with Tom Friedman's last article until April Fools Day (how will we live without Tom to complain about?) discussing the loss of biodiversity:

Our generation has entered a phase that no previous generation has ever experienced: the Noah phase. With more and more species threatened with extinction by The Flood that is today’s global economic juggernaut, we may be the first generation in human history that literally has to act like Noah — to save the last pairs of a wide range of species. ::In the Age of Noah

The Times also asked writers from China, France, Chile and the US to describe the effects of climate change. ::New York Times
