Tesla Production Rising Toward 7,000 Vehicles A Week?

There are various Tesla production “trackers” out there. None of them are perfect. Who knows what the heck is really going on anyway? And even when Elon Musk himself seems to know what’s going on, a new hiccup (or dagger from the devil ruling production hell) can end up changing the story. That said, recent indicators I’ve seen imply that Tesla is approaching a solid 7,000+ cars a week again

Although West Antarctica contributed just 6 millimeters of sea level rise in that time, scientists say ice-sheet collapse there could raise global sea levels by 3 meters in the coming centuries. The accelerating loss could be a sign that the

410 PPM & Rising — CO2 Levels Reach Dangerous Levels

The Madhouse Effect dust jacket from Tom TolesHigh atop Mauna Loa on the island of Hawai’i, there is an observatory scientists use to study the cosmos. At 14,000 feet above sea level, it has a clearer view of the heavens than most places on Earth. (It is a neighbor of Kilauea, the volcano that erupted this week after a 6.9 magnitude earthquake struck the island.) The observatory is also an ideal place to monitor the Earth’s atmosphere in a place with no local pollution from large cities. One of the instruments installed there measures the concentration of carbon dioxide in the air

Oddly Enough, More Snow in Antarctica Could Slow Rising Sea Levels
Futurism
Climate change affects our world in inscrutable ways, and scientists struggle to capture its interconnected impacts. Antarctica is a good example: global temperatures are known to increase the amount of vapor in the air, and for the frozen deserts of

One was supposed to be heavier snowfall over the vast continent of Antarctica. Warmer air will hold more moisture and thus generate more snow to fall inland and slightly rebuild the glacier, according to climate model projections. Not so fast, says a

The plateau of East Antarctica, the site of most previous ice cores, is relatively high and dry. About 80 percent of the continent's precipitation falls on the lower, stormier edges, like where this core was drilled in 2006-2011. (To prepare scientists

Salting the earth: Drilling boom brings rising number of harmful waste spills

The spill total increased each year … The loudest whistleblowers are often property owners, who must allow drilling access to their land if they don’t own the mineral rights. “Most ranchers are very attached to the land,” said Jeff Henry, president …
