Deck the Halls with Boughs of Minerals?
Is your home all decked out for the holidays? As you gaze at your glowing trimmings, you might pause to wonder what gives your delightful dcor some of its traditional seasonal color: cobalt oxide, cadmium sulfide and sulfur. According to USGS scientists who collect worldwide data on almost all mineral resources, holiday lights are made with these and other minerals from around the world. The world's supply of minerals such as salt, manganese and lime lights up the holiday season, helping many nations and cultures to celebrate their long-time traditions. In 2007, the mineral materials processed domestically accounted for more than $575 billion in the U.S. economy. To learn more about how minerals make the holidays bright and the economy roll, visit http://www.usgs.gov/newsroom/article.asp?ID=1584. For more information about other mineral related topics, visit the USGS Mineral Resources Program Web site at http://minerals.usgs.gov/ or contact Dennis Kostick at (703) 648-7715 or dkostick@usgs.gov.

Prehistoric Climate Provides Clues to Future Changes
The USGS led research has resulted in the first comprehensive reconstruction of an extreme warm period. This reconstruction shows the sensitivity of the climate system to changes in carbon dioxide (CO2) levels. It also shows the strong influence that ocean temperatures, heat transport from equatorial regions, and greenhouse gases have on Earth's temperature. Past warm periods provide real data on climate change and are natural laboratories for understanding the global climate system. New data allow scientists to
