The SI article is interesting but is short on specifics, which seems to be a recurring problem with articles of this type (though a couple of nice examples with footballers down south and what might happen to baseball spring training). There's a real gap for a comprehensive look, either in the US or around the world or both, of how climate change is changing culture. Gosh, someone should start a blog.
Also from the NY Times, some scientists are taking issue with Al Gore. They acknowledge the problem but disagree about degree and alarmism. Expect to see more stories like this in the future. Journalists have been slow to realise that the story is moving on - from 'global warming - what is it, is it happening?' (even the SI reporter had to explain the basic concept) to 'what do we do, how is it affecting us, what are the ideas for tackling it?' It's becoming a much more complex public issue than many people really realise.
