I love that West Antarctic ice has spurred an energy discussion. 🤘
It’s a non-binding treaty so no, I don’t think the U.S. was taken advantage of especially as the world’s largest historical emitter. The agreement isn’t as ambitious as it should be precisely because of the lack of U.S. ambition and political uncertainty due to the only major political party in the world that denies…
That’s a fair point that at least the signage will be around (and there definitely is a lot and “don’t bust the crust” is a catchy slogan to boot). But I also worry less oversight could inspire folks to ignore signage since they feel like they won’t get caught busting said crust.
Was hoping my Sox comment would be outweighed by my Ichiro love. :-/
wait, that’s a thing?
The U.S. had committed $3 billion (that’s with a “b” not a “tr”) to the Green Climate Fund, the UN’s main climate project funding mechanism. It’s the biggest contributor but don’t forget the U.S. is also the largest historical emitter of carbon dioxide and the world’s biggest economy. Dozens of other countries have…

Not a bad idea.
Whoa, I somehow didn’t notice that the first (or second or third for that matter) watch through. Amazing!

Fair point. I try to avoid melt unless talking specifically about the ice but see it snuck in there once or twice. Thanks for the eagle eye!
Of course not. I almost did a Masters in environmental humanities myself a few (OK many) years ago and love covering the intersection of art and science.
Yes, absolutely. This is not a problem limited to STEM or earth sciences, we just focused there since we’re Earther.
I fixed the typo, but we can hold out hope there’s a Dilberto meteorologist out there somewhere.
Not quite. It’s in Spanish if that helps...
It’s the “house” in greenhouse because scientists love to mix up their acronyms.
Yeah shoulda mentioned the food rate is par for the course. Thanks for flagging. As far as government hotel rates, meant it as a measuring stick. I see hotels in San Juan next week well within the $195 range fwiw.
