Two nice pieces in the July 2007 Scientific American
An interview with Alan Weisman on the decay of human evidence from the planet if people suddenly vanished. Lots of fun --birds, trees, mosquitoes and cats win ... cockroaches, rats and cattle loose... , suspension bridges last about 300 years and CO2 levels return to pre-industrial levels after about 100,000 years.
Kevin Trenberth summarizes research on the number and strength of hurricanes as climate change plays out ... nothing here that hasn't been covered in realclimate, but the discussion is clear and should be read by a wider audience.
Many other good pieces and all rendered using that amazingly usable paper and ink technology.
