Europe was really, really hot this past week and the jury is in: The heatwave was made worse by man made climate factors. Yes.

Too Hot To Sweat – climate change will make parts of the planet uninhabitable, soon

This Tree Tweets – scientists hook a tree up with sensors to track reaction to change

Trees can’t talk to us which is a shame because they could probably tell us a lot about our changing world. After all, they’ve been around for a very, very long time. Somebody else thought about that too and thanks to technology, gave one tree a way to “talk” to us, no Lorax needed. A northern red oak has been outfitted with sensors and its observations are tweeted.
