World Scientists’ Warning of a Climate Emergency

quote [ we present a suite of graphical vital signs of climate change over the last 40 years for human activities that can affect GHG emissions and change the climate (figure 1), as well as actual climatic impacts (figure 2). We use only relevant data sets that are clear, understandable, systematically collected for at least the last 5 years, and updated at least annually. ]

In case the XKCD summary wasn't sharp enough.

The Deletion of Yahoo! Groups and Archive Team's Rescue Effort –

quote [ On December 14, everything ever posted to Yahoo! Groups in its 20-year history will be permanently deleted from the web. Groups will continue running as email-only mailing lists, but all public content and archives — messages, attachments, photos, and more — will be deleted. ]

The only mailing list I still expected to be on Yahoo had already transitioned to

Some of these preservation efforts make me wonder if it's more of a sentimental thing. Or if there really is a use in keeping 20 year old web communication public.
