"In 2014, researchers found that alpine goats appeared to be shrinking due to warming temperatures. The same year, another study found salamanders had shrunk rapidly in response to climate change."

This is insane!

There's a picture in the article, with a helicopter with what it looks like a very small quantity of water, ready to fly into the black smoke created by the wildfires... And I'm here, in front of my laptop, reading this comment, and I'm feeling hopeless. I know, as a species we did a lot of good (for selfish reasons or not), but in present times it feels like we are doing too much harm (comparing with the good). And it's no turning back and I feel like crap.

"To save the internet and ourselves, we’ll need to harden and relocate the infrastructure we’ve built, find cleaner ways to power the web, and reimagine how we interact with the digital world."

Easy to say hard to do. We face so many problems right now and we take action so damn slowly. I think we're doomed.

The organization said they believed the birds had been the victims of a targeted poisoning.

I'm currently reading "Sapiens: a brief history of humankind" ... The same thing over and over again. People will provoke mass extinction of animals and birds for various reasons. Sometimes is just hunting. Other times is agriculture through arson. And in our days is mostly ignorance and stupidity... I can't believe someone will actually poison those birds!

As it says in the article: "...causing a slow and painful death for the birds which could take many days to die in some instances." Very sad.

This global "Climate Stripes" graphic is the work of Prof Ed Hawkins at Reading University who has sought clearer ways to communicate the issues around climate change - and to start conversations that might lead to solutions.

He got the idea one January - the month the big meteorological agencies release their annual assessments of the state of the climate

Omg, what an article. Why does it have to be so complicated???

It should be simple: ask a question, write an answer plain and simple. But nooooo, you need to write a few paragraphs of stupid description and at the end I still don't have the answer!!!!

And NO! I don't want to watch the video! I hate this.
