From The New York Times:
The world may already be nearing a temperature at which the loss of the vast ice sheet covering Greenland would become inevitable, the report said. The actual melting would then take centuries, but it would be unstoppable and could result in a sea level rise of 23 feet, with additional increases from other sources like melting Antarctic ice, potentially flooding the world’s major cities.
We Are On The Verge Of An Electric Car Battery Breakthrough Think Progress
Having opened up its electric car technology patents to the rest of the auto industry, Tesla Motors is on the verge of achieving a cost-effective electric car.
Daniel Sparks at Motley Fool is reporting that the company is on the right track towards developing a battery that costs only $100 per kilowatt-hour — a cost widely believed to be the threshold where electric vehicles can finally be cost-competitive.
Tesla has plans to build an enormous $5 billion battery manufacturing plant with 6,500 workers.

And man did it feel good.
