Agroforestry (shade coffee is a subset of this) is good for everything we care about. Endangered birds, mammals, indigenous farmers, children, soil, forests, water, climate change. Please read about it and find out how we can get farmers growing this way. It can be done anywhere. …
You too can be a coffee achiever like David Bowie, The Wilson sisters of Heart fame, Cicely Tyson, Kurt Vonnegut, and the baggy eyed pride of Batavia, IL quarterback Ken Anderson.
first impression: awesome! what’s the catch?
Another reason to be vigilant is sometimes these events cause changes to elevations.
As geophysicist and former writer for Gizmodo Mika McKinnon explained to Earther
So between this and Greenland (and generally less and less ice in Arctic) we are pretty much at that moment right before an avalanche. It’s only the little bits falling now and it’s still holding but the whole thing is already unstable and about to fall on our heads. And bury coasts under water.
Yeah... they were terrifying before having this information. Back in the clan home town in Philippines, there’d be jellyfish swarms every now and then and it’s a bunch of baby (?) jellyfish that are just everywhere and going in the water is just asking to be stung by several.
My beverage went all over my monitor. 9/10 was not ready for. Dr. Stone, you are a god damn national treasure.
How about hygrometry? Measuring moisture content of gases.
Co2 emissions might make Superman look good, but here’s the real question: as an alien lifeform, is he leaving non-biodegradeable Supercrap everywhere?
How about Captain Planet? See I gotta figure that while Cap Planet is zero emission, those kids who summon him do a lot of globe trotting to find pollution hotspots. Are they like, just doing some sort of carbon trading thing there?
The Iron Man calculation is going to take a lot of explanation, since he also invented the production-size (and miniaturized) arc fusion reactor. That kind of energy tech is good for at least some carbon offset considerations, especially since it’ll get used by others!
That was not bad atoll.
Okay, yeah, this is cool as hell. Earther is quickly becoming one of my favorite Kinja sites. Keep it up Maddie.
I have to say that I think these articles about conditions in and around Utqiaġvik are a phenomenal series. The Arctic is one of the places where people can see anthropogenic climate change happening firsthand, and the US is (through weird historical events) fortunate to have Alaska as Arctic territory. The silly…
When I read the line about the retardant chemical being potentially harmful I wondered how many people would miss the point and and bring up the fact that fire is harmful too. The answer seems to be pretty much all of them.
Or you could reduce the need for such retardants by managing the root problem more effectively:
This is probably one of the best examples of a negative impact of climate change without the melting ice cap scenarios. Just an increase of erosion due to lost pack ice threatening an entire community. Only bright side seems to be that the indigenous peoples of these region are extremely tough.
I had an English class on Science Fiction, that specifically dug into Frakenstein as the genesis of the genre. Good times!
Look, guys, I’m no scientist, but I’m pretty sure the best way to keep a seal fat and happy is to give it fish, not drones.
