Islam in World Politics: Against the Conventional Wisdom [Audio]
Speaker(s): John Sidel | Today’s on-going conflicts in Iraq, Syria, and elsewhere and recurring terrorist incidents have helped to reproduce and reinforce the conventional wisdom about Islam as an increasingly powerful force in world politics.

Cloud cover, climate and the carbon dioxide question
Clouds reflect heat back into space. Knowing how clouds form tells us about how sensitive the atmosphere is to heating. Professor Steven Sherwood, from UNSW Australia's Climate Change Research Centre, has just released a paper in the prestigious "Nature" journal explaining that research and observations show fewer clouds will form than demonstrated in existing climate models. The low warming predicted for an expected doubling of C02 in the atmosphere is now out of the question. Expect warming

In 1524, the French king commissioned Italian explorer Giovanni da Verrazano to search for a passageway through the New World. Verrazano spotted the coast of South Carolina and sailed north as far as Nova Scotia, but found no such water route or valuable treasure.
