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.

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.

I thought I was pretty clear it is Objectively Good the hospital has power and the governor is happy.
I don’t think it’s backhanded at all. It’s fair to acknowledge that Tesla is well-positioned to help PR and did something that could potentially save lives (which this post does very clearly) while also acknowledging there were NDAs signed and billionaires and corporations swooping in after a disaster don’t always…
Some are! Check out this piece, which includes some info on a solar farm that survived Maria: https://earther.com/puerto-rico-has-a-once-in-a-lifetime-opportunity-to-ret-1819143446
Oh man totally overlooked climate change impact.
Wait really? I don’t have kids and live in New York so this is (perhaps not surprisingly) news to me.
