The egg-shaped sauna sits on the outskirts of Kiruna, Sweden. It’s five meters tall and features a gold-plated stainless steel shell that magically reflects the landscape around it. Inside, the pine-clad interior surrounds a handmade wood-fired burner, encased in an iron cage in the shape of an anatomical heart.

Last year, for the first time in four million years, carbon dioxide levels in Antarctica reached 400 parts per million. The outcome being that the icy continent is now turning green, taking, it, in essence, backward in geologic time.
Air travel is likely to get a lot bumpier because of climate-change, a new study suggests.
Doubling of carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere would increase the average amount of severe cloudless, “clear air” turbulence by 149 percent. Commercial passenger jets, on long-haul flights, routinely cruise at altitudes of five to seven miles.
