24th September - Today's News: Flood Misery Continues in North India





What happened to the 2014 Atlantic hurricane season? - the quietest so far since 1997, though we did have a record early North Carolina landfall with Arthur, the first Cat 2 to make landfall in the US since Ike in 2008.

Liberia signs 'tranformational' deal to stem deforestation - Norway will pay the country not to cut down any trees.  A far more effective means of stemming climate change than taxing oil .... (if it works!).  Off course, this is but one small African country, but if the US and China followed suit with Brazil and Indonesia .....  However, since Brazil refuses to join pledge to end deforestation, that seems unlikely.
