1. IPCC dominates the news. In the Sixth Century AD, two Icelandic volcanoes.
Siberian wildfires: the peat is burning under the tundra. Moscow kremlin finally sent firefighters.
2. The Powers; & What is to be done? Those responsible for a great deal of the tons of CO2 flowing out: China, India, Europe, and the US —adversarial nations. Too many conferences have been devoted to getting whole-world agreement; whereas two-thirds of emissions come from few countries. Apocalyptic problems in the Arctic. We need to look at geoengineering in the Arctic; crucial that the Great Powers do that in concert.
