Global warming waning? Hardly. 2010 was tied as warmest year on record. - CSMonitor.com
2010 tied as warmest year ever, NOAA climatologists say. Year’s data are consistent with the notion that greenhouse gases from burning fossil fuels are contributing to global warming.

2009 Winter Outlooks for Temperature (left) and Precipitation (right) issued by NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center on October 15, 2009.
Bitter cold temperatures and blizzards of historic proportions prompted the questions: Why were there so many historic snowstorms in the mid-Atlantic region this winter? Are they evidence that global warming isn’t happening? No, the globe is warming. But the real story behind the mid-Atlantic’s winter isn’t about climate change, it’s about climate variability. Climate variability, the term scientists use, explains why record-breaking snowstorms and global warming can coexist. In fact, many of the weather events observed this winter help to confirm our understanding of the climate system, including links between weather and climate.

10/10/10 Global Work Party (350.org) (via 350org)

On the 10th of October, in every corner of the globe, we will implement solutions to the climate crisis: from solar panels to community gardens, wind turbines to bike workshops. We’ll tell leaders: “We’re getting to work—what about you?” Join us at http://350.org

Forests of genetically altered trees and other plants could sequester several billion tons of carbon from the atmosphere each year and so help ameliorate global warming, according to estimates published in the October issue of BioScience.

The study, by researchers at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Oak Ridge National Laboratory, outlines a variety of strategies for augmenting the processes that plants use to sequester carbon dioxide from the air and convert it into long-lived forms of carbon, first in vegetation and ultimately in soil.

A Technology to Recyle CO2 into Fuel

"Carbon Sciences is developing a breakthrough technology to recyle carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions into gasoline and other fuels. Innovating at the intersection of chemical engineering and bio-engineering disciplines, we are developing a unique, energy efficient and highly scalable biocatalytic process to meet the fuel needs of the world.”
