CONCLUSION (from Joe Romm, http://thinkprogress.org)
“The possibility that unrestricted emissions of greenhouse gases would not do unimaginable harm to humanity has become vanishingly small. That’s because:
- We remain near the worst-case emissions pathways
- There is little prospect of major national or global action any times soon (thank you, deniers)
- Many impacts are coming faster than the models projected, and
- The overwhelming majority of the scientific literature in the past 5 years has been more dire than the 2007 IPCC report, which itself was more than enough motivation for the overwhelming majority of climate scientists and countries to call for urgent action to reduce emissions.
And I haven’t even discussed the many, many studies that suggest in fact carbon-cycle feedbacks (like the defrosting tundra) are almost all positive (amplifying) and yet largely ignored in most climate models."

Spa City Local Farm Market Co-op: The Market is now closed for ordering.
The market is now closed for ordering. We’ll see you this Friday between 3:30 and 5:30 for pickup.
New Field Farm's Online Market: Almost over
Between last week’s bulk order and our last market today in Newton there’s not too much left in the field or barn.
We still have carrots, red and green cabbage, leeks, Winterbor and Lacinato kale, and a few Ailsa Craig, Tropea, and Copra onions. The prices given are for any amount.
We’ll have an order this week. Next week I’m away. After that, if we still have some produce, I’ll offer it as long as it lasts or until there’s no more interest. Any orders placed week after next or later would have to be picked up at the farm.
We went from the hot March to the May freeze, from the July drought to the torrential rain and hail of early August, through the gauntlet of pests and diseases, and throughout the season, wild turkeys. In the end, thanks to your support, we had the best online market yet, and our best season overall. Thank you for trusting us to provide fresh, organic vegetables and blueberries for another season.
