Are we that naive to think that the effects of climate change are imaginary or will suddenly abate, or is the real issue that no one wants to bear the cost of what needs to be done to protect our future and the future of our children? I always believed that hope was not a strategy. I guess there are many who do.

You might have to get used to it. A new study says that as the world gets warmer, parts of North America, Europe and Asia could see more frequent and stronger visits of that cold air. Researchers say that’s because of shrinking ice in the seas off Russia. Normally, the polar vortex is penned in the Arctic. But at times it escapes and wanders south, bringing with it a bit of ...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="#license-583648252014-09-02T12:32:38.727-06:00" id="#license-2014-09-02T12:32:38.727-06:00"> Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.

But a new study says climate change and warming waters — and its lack of mobility — are threatening its existence and decreasing its numbers. Scientists studying climate change anticipate that as Earth continues to warm, fish and wildlife will migrate away from the equator or seek higher ground for a cooler habitat. “The catch phrase is ‘Migrate, Adapt or Die,’” said Mark Hausner, a...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
