Amid the chaos, a bemused bloke stands holding his skis mumbles: "Not the best day to decide to ski the glacier." The place is Alpe d'Huez, and the race is Megavalanche.

Coal will be a main energy source for 'decades and decades', says Greg Hunt 14.4.2014 Guardian: Environment

Environment minister says advances in carbon capture will be key to Australia's emissions cuts in his response to IPCC report
