"This incredible thunderstorm photo was taken from a plane over Panama City"
"A thunderstorm exploded over Panama City last week. Towering cumulonimbus climb high around its core. An anvil cloud stretches out at the top of the troposphere, swept downwind by the jet stream. There’s a faint hint of an over-shooting top above the core, which indicates the storm’s updraft is so strong, it’s penetrating the super-stable stratosphere. The city lights are blurred, but the storm is in focus. A few stars are faintly visible. The photo was shot by Santiago Borja from the cockpit of a plane at the precise moment of a lightning flash, which illuminates the storm. It isn’t the first time he’s captured such a remarkable image."

______________________________________"Arctic Ice Packing Melting at Record Levels at Climate Change Takes Hold"
"Arctic ice pack levels have receded to the second lowest level ever recorded in an ominous sign of global climate change. The Arctic ice pack, or the amount of solid ice that has formed in the Arctic Circle, fluctuates in size with the seasons. The summer low point this year was the second lowest recorded in history, exceeded only by the record low of 2012. Below, you can watch a NASA video of the Arctic ice pack at its minimum extent last year, which was the fourth lowest on record. Arctic ice is monitored by The National Snow and Ice Data Center in Colorado, who told the Guardian that the ice pack reached a mark of 1.6 million square miles, a record low and vastly less than the averages established between 1970 and 2000. Mark Serreze, director of the Center, said that the new low in Arctic ice confirms a frightening new reality."

"By the middle of the century, the Baltimore oriole may no longer live in Maryland. And the brown pelican—the state bird of Louisiana—may no longer live in Louisiana. Thousands of other species are also likely to move as they try to adapt to a climate change. A new map from the Nature Conservancy shows that migration on a massive scale, based on a 2013 study that projected the movement of 2,903 mammals, birds, and amphibians in the Western Hemisphere."
