Fruit, wildlife and even whales soak up the sun as Britain basks in summer 27.7.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
After seven dismal years, plants and wildlife all over the UK are now thriving again

After seven years of weird weather thought to be linked to climate change, an unusual phenomenon is unfolding across Britain: a lovely, sultry, old-fashioned summer.

The recent weeks of warm weather punctuated by sharp, thunderous storms are, according to the Met Office, pretty much what should be expected for this time of year and, across the land, nature is taking advantage of a return to order. Meadows are in full flower and abuzz with insects, fruit is abundant and ripening and birds are feasting on the bounty. In the fields, farmers are looking forward to a good harvest.

Nicky Morgan's statement on Birmingham 'Trojan horse' inquiry: Politics live blog 22.7.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Rolling coverage of all the day's political developments as they happen, including a Commons statement from Nicky Morgan, the education secretary, on the Birmingham "Trojan horse" affair 12.24pm BST And here are more extracts from Peter Clarke's conclusion. I neither specifically looked for nor found evidence of terrorism, radicalisation or violent extremism in the schools of concern in Birmingham. However, by reference to the definition of extremism in the Prevent strand of the Governments counter terrorist strategy, CONTEST, and the spectrum of extremism described by the Prime Minister in his Munich speech in February 2011, I found clear evidence that there are a number of people, associated with each other and in positions of influence in schools and governing bodies, who espouse, endorse or fail to challenge extremist views. It has been suggested to me that the ambition of those involved was only to create high achieving schools reflecting the communities they serve, following the wishes of the ...

This wonder of the world has turned off. Are you worried about the climate yet? | Hugh Ryan 17.7.2014 Guardian: Comment is Free
The mystery at magical Mosquito Bay is a warning: we must connect our environments, or else we're doomed to darkness Even before I was a travel writer, I approached sights described as "magical" with a good deal of skepticism. Too often, I have been promised miracles and delivered slights-of-hand the usual bravura and bluff of tourism. The bioluminescent bay in Vieques, Puerto Rico was one of the few places that made good on its promises. Maybe the only one . By day, the warm shallow bay looked unremarkable, even somewhat dingy compared to the crystalline waters of nearby Caribbean beaches. But at night, the flash and spark of the tiny phytoplankton in this Mangrove lagoon filled me with literal awe. It was like living lightning. Since January, however, the bay has gone dark and no one knows ...

8 charts that show how climate change is making the world more dangerous 14.7.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page

Disasters including storms, floods and heatwaves have increased fivefold since the 1970s, UN finds

Forget the future. The world already is nearly five times as dangerous and disaster prone as it was in the 1970s, because of the increasing risks brought by climate change, according to a new report from the World Meteorological Organisation.

The first decade of the 21st century saw 3,496 natural disasters from floods, storms, droughts and heat waves. That was nearly five times as many disasters as the 743 catastrophes reported during the 1970s and all of those weather events are influenced by climate change.
