Near-Death Experiences of Brazilian Corals: The phenomenon is described and its implications are discussed.

Subject Index Summary
Temperature Trends (Potential Inaccuracies): Over the years, a large number of potential problems associated with various ways of assessing the temperatures of diverse types of land cover have been identified; and several of them are briefly described, with an emphasis on demonstrating the great difficulty of obtaining various surface-specific sets of annual near-surface air temperature which - when combined for the earth as a whole - yield a set of yearly mean values that accurately represents the mean near-surface thermal history of the planet well enough to determine whether or not the earth may be warming at the rate that is typically predicted by climate model assessments of the greenhouse effect of the CO2 emitted to the atmosphere as a consequence of mankind's burning of fossil fuels, such as coal, gas and oil.
