    This NASA Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) satellite image of the Gulf of Mexico obtained on May 28, 2010 shows the extent of the oil released from the Deepwater Horizon spill. The oil can be seen as a sheen on the water surface. It is especially evident when the angle of the sun's light that is reflected off of the ocean surface is equal to the viewing angle of the satellite - called sunglint.

    Why has global warming paused? Water vapor may be in the answer.

    A decline in stratospheric water vapor between 2000 and 2009 followed an apparent increase between 1980 and 2000, a team of scientists has found. That finding may have implications for global warming.
