Time for a new thread.

To kick things off, here are some interesting articles that I’ve spotted recently.

Let me know when you are read for a climate thread, week in review or something.

A few things that caught my eye this past week.

Rates of sea level rise along the N. American E. Coast have decelerated in recent decades (5 of 6). SLR rates were “only slightly lower” in the 1700s. Modern sea level rise rates are thus “not necessarily symptomatic of...

Dear friends of this aggregator

  • Yes, I intentionally removed Newsbud from the aggregator on Mar 22.
  • Newsbud did not block the aggregator, although their editor blocked me on twitter after a comment I made to her
  • As far as I know, the only site that blocks this aggregator is Global Research. I have no idea why!!
  • Please stop recommending Newsbud and Global Research to be added to the aggregator.
