      U.S. proposes new climate service

      "The Obama administration proposed a new climate service on Monday
      that would provide Americans with predictions on how global warming
      will affect everything from drought to sea levels. The National
      Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Climate Service, modeled
      loosely on the 140-year-old National Weather Service, would provide
      forecasts to farmers, regional water managers and businesses affected
      by changing climate conditions."

      The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration launched a new
      climate service today, a reorganization effort aimed at improving
      long-range assessments of climate change, sea-level rise and severe
      weather.
      The effort is aimed at providing long-term forecasts to assist
      fisheries managers, farmers, state governments, renewable energy
      developers, water managers and others.

      Arctic sea ice vanishing faster than 'our most pessimistic models': researcher

      "Sea ice in Canada's fragile Arctic is melting faster than anyone
      expected, the lead investigator in Canada's largest climate-change
      study yet said Friday - raising the possibility that the Arctic
      could, in a worst-case scenario, be ice-free in about three years.
      University of Manitoba Prof. David Barber, the lead investigator of
      the Circumpolar Flaw Lead System Study, said the rapid decay of thick
      Arctic Sea ice highlights the rapid pace of climate change in the
      North and foreshadows what will come in the South."

      Coal ad blitz launches new spot as industry sees political gains

      "An advertising campaign that previously pushed the phrase "clean
      coal" launches new spots this week focused on jobs and low-cost
      power, the latest offering in a three-year, nearly $120 million
      effort to sell Congress and the White House on coal's future.
      Increasingly, there are signs that it is working.
