If this new paper is correct, we should be firing up our SUVs.
Thirty years on, how do climate predictions hold up?
Not well. [paywall]
Sounds like San Francisco, Seattle and Portland are becoming like third-world hell holes. I’m supposed to go up to the city in July for the ISS conference. Doesn’t seem like a great location choice.

Nice to hear him endorse the multilat idea I’ve been (and will continue to be) promoting.
Chris Davenport has an in-depth story on the coming age of American human spaceflight. I’d note that in the future, one will not need to learn to speak Russian to go into space. That will be a relic of a happily bygone era.
As one of the few remaining moon walkers, I admire him, which is why it saddens me to see him regurgitating pro-SLS propaganda. I’m in the last throes of a proposal, or I’d take it apart, but maybe someone else will.
