Yesterday the fire nearly quadrupled in size and has only been contained 1-percent by firefighters. But worst of all, the fire has reached the border of the stunning Yosemite park, prompting evacuations of homes and recreational areas from the ecologically sensitive region.

A leaked draft of the  Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change ‘s next big climate report finds near unanimous certainty that greenhouse gas emissions from humans are primarily responsible for global warming. While their finding should surprise absolutely nobody, the 95 percent figure is, in fact, five percent higher than the one reached in the IPCC’s 2007 report. The United Nations panel also concludes that if emissions continue unabated, sea levels could rise by more than three feet by the end of the century, threatening major cities such as New York, Miami, London, Shanghai and Sidney.
