We have repackaged the data from a newer compilation put together by the Berkeley Earth, which is affiliated with Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. The Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature Study combines 1.6 billion temperature reports from 16 pre-existing archives. It is nicely packaged and allows for slicing into interesting subsets (for example by country).

At Skoll Forum April 13: We know what’s right and we’ve seen what’s wrong,” he said. Citing the abolition of slavery, women’s suffrage and ending apartheid are all examples that show that’s what’s right and good eventually wins out. (Blogmaster BizDeansTalk:author is forgetting he mentioned the obtaining of gay rights across the USA as well.)
(Blogmaster BizDeansTalk:) Mr. Gore also mentioned how "Carbon bubble" is much more absurd than even the "sub-prime" bubble, as the whole planetary system would collapse before even a part of existing carbon reserves (still on the books as "assets") could be burned.

"Now it is the turn of business, of investment managers to say 'OK, how are we going to get there, how do we have to change our investment patterns, how do we have to change the way in which we have been working for such a long time, in order to be able to get to the decarbonized economy in time?'"
Figueres' comments come in the wake of U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry stating that clean energy was "one of the greatest economic opportunities the world has ever seen."

Why Does the Media Ignore Grid-Scale Solar? https://t.co/vIqCMKBC8O cool factor of DG beats economics of large scale in media— Severin Borenstein (@BorensteinS) April 4, 2016
There are certainly examples of the press covering the benefits of the grid. For example, The Economist had a recent piece that was largely about grid electricity. But, the coverage is disproportionately of the off-grid sector.
I’m not against solar home systems or solar lanterns. My concern is that those technologies are getting a disproportionate share of the media coverage relative to the potential benefits they can provide. If policymakers follow the media’s lead and emphasize off-grid solutions, we’re overlooking much higher impact on-grid solutions. And, if the ambitious entrepreneurs and funding follow the media, we’re ignoring the most important part of the picture.
To my mind, this is a huge omission. I hope we see more coverage of companies working on grid-scale solutions in the months to come.

American College & University Presidents Climate Commitment www2.presidentsclimatecommitment.org/html/commitment.php
We, the undersigned presidents and chancellors of colleges and universities, are deeply concerned about the unprecedented scale and speed of global warming and its potential for large-scale, adverse health, social, economic and ecological effects. We recognize the scientific consensus that global warming is real and is largely being caused by humans. We further recognize the need to reduce the global emission of greenhouse gases by 80% by mid-century at the latest, in order to avert the worst impacts of global warming and to reestablish the more stable climatic conditions that have made human progress over the last 10,000 years possible.
While we understand that there might be short-term challenges associated with this effort...
