Just a short note to share a few of the days finds.
Johnny Rook over a Climaticide Chronicles has what he aptly called “Stunning Photos of Retreating Glaciers.”
“Are changed, changed utterly: A terrible beauty is born”
W.B. Yeats Easter 1916
Lord knows how I missed this one “The narrow temperature window that gave us modern human civilization” at Climate Progress, but it really is a “must read.”
Brian D. has been a huge help with responding to comments on this blog as well as the one who brought the above article to my attention, so let’s bring his comment into the post to pair them up and make the video more visible.
Ironically, the graph that came up in the previous comment thread that caused me to bring up
this slide… is also one of the best slides to pair it with. I’ve got a version on my laptop that highlights the small human-history segment to put that in perspective, since the slide above uses a quasi-log scale as opposed to a linear one that more people are familiar with. (You throw exponentials at people and they never understand the consequences…)
For those who missed it Climate Dilemma has Hansen: Australian target “practically guarantees destruction of most life on the planet” which sums it up nicely, if not cheerfully.
