New Evidence that Sea Levels are Rising Faster than Previously Thought.  Rising not not 18-59 cm by 2100 as IPCC 2007,  but rather 50-100 cm,  according to this report on the research at the Economist.

Child Undernutrition in India.   The New York Times runs an article on child undernutrition in India.   "China ... sharply reduced child malnutrition, and now just 7 percent of its children under 5 are underweight, a critical gauge of malnutrition. In India, by contrast, despite robust growth and good government intentions, the comparable number is 42.5 percent. Malnutrition makes children more prone to illness and stunts physical and intellectual growth for a lifetime.   There are no simple explanations."  Of course LA Times had a similar story last August.
