no more bell, no more pop-up notifications

I AM DIS­CON­TIN­UING THE SER­VICE that sends pop-up mes­sages to readers. Sub­scribing to these pop-ups—called push notifications—required you to click on the bell (the large image pic­tured above) in the lower corner of this blog. Due to their neg­a­tive im­pact on the speed and ef­fi­ciency of this blog, these no­ti­fi­ca­tions will cease immediately. [Read more] “no more bell, no more pop-up notifications”

I HAVE A FACE­BOOK PAGE ti­tled Bleeding Heart Lib­eral Pe­ti­tions. Most days, I re­ceive a slew of emails with pe­ti­tions for var­ious causes such as saving an en­dan­gered species, urging my rep­re­sen­ta­tives in state and fed­eral gov­ern­ment to vote for or against a par­tic­ular bill, protest an in­jus­tice, etc. I read them all, sign most of them, and add a few to the Face­book page.

MOST OF THE AR­TI­CLES HERE on the GCC – Global Cli­mate Change blog are por­tals to other ar­ti­cles. I am cer­tainly not an ex­pert in any field that even re­motely touches on the var­ious sci­ences that ad­dress cli­mate.
