Strength of global stratospheric circulation measured for first time

When commercial airplanes break through the clouds to reach cruising altitude, they have typically arrived in the stratosphere, the second layer of Earth's atmosphere. The air up there is dry and clear, and much calmer than the turbulent atmosphere we experience on the ground. And yet, for all its seeming tranquility, the stratosphere can be a powerful conveyor belt, pulling air up from the Earth's equatorial region and pushing it back down toward the poles in a continuously circulating pattern. The strength of this …

If Coal Shouts “National Security!” And Nobody Listens, Does It Make A Sound?

The Energy Department's controversial new grid study evoked a storm of criticism last week from clean energy stakeholders, but if you read it through, the agency actually makes it clear that coal can only swim with today's energy sharks -- natural gas and, increasingly, wind and solar -- with the help of new taxpayer subsidies. The economics just don't work for coal any more. If Coal …
