It's not often that stories go "up in flames,"
but this one did:
http://environmentreport.org/story.php?story_id=4360

Today, NASA's satellite designed to track carbon 
in the atmosphere crashed into the ocean near 
Antarctica.

And here's what on the Report today...

President Obama outlines his budget
tonight before a joint session of
Congress. Many people will be watching
for more investment in what's called the
"green recovery."

And... what if there were a White House
farmer? The idea's been bandied about
by a famous food writer, and there's
even been an Internet contest to elect
one. Shawn Allee reports on the farmer
who won the contest. She's ready to
plow the White House lawn for an organic
garden. Now, there's just the little
matter of winning over the Obama White 
House.
