    Tied or a record. You fools would never report a decline(except if it was an icecap).

    They swore, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would cease.
    “As a general rule, the earlier you recognize someone is trying to kill you, the better off you’ll be.”

    Environmentalists Hand Out Condoms to Protest Feared Trump-Era Overpopulation

    Environmentalists Hand Out Condoms to Protest Feared Trump-Era Overpopulation

    An environmental group handed out 10,000 free "endangered species condoms" at New Year's Eve events and on college campuses nationwide to mark 2017 in a show of protest against President-elect Trump.
    The Center for Biological Diversity said the condom giveaway was meant to highlight overpopulation amid fears of Trump policies on contraception along with fears of what could happen to protected wildlife species under his administration.
    “Many women are already worrying about what life under President Trump is going to mean for access to affordable birth control. It’s a very real possibility that the Affordable Care Act will be gutted and contraception costs will skyrocket,” Leigh Moyer, the center’s population organizer, said in a statement. “Human population growth drives the majority of environmental problems, so making it harder to prevent unplanned pregnancy isn’t good news for women or for wildlife.”
    The enviro-condoms project -- using vegan, fair-trade condoms free of animal by-products -- has been around since 2009, with contraceptives bearing phrases such as "wrap with care... save the polar bear" and "use a stopper… save the hopper."

    Story one: The chemist with a broken heart

    The history of climate change science is, at least in part, a story
    of side-projects – things people do when they probably should have been
    working on something else.

    Humans knew climate change was a thing
    from roughly the start of the 19th century, but it was a while before
    anyone bothered investing much energy properly investigating the topic.
    It just wasn’t a big deal, there were other more pressing things to be
    looking into. So, at least in the early days of unravelling this thing
    we now call global warming, research was left to the enthusiasts, the
    easily distracted, the bored or the eccentric.

    Here’s a story of one such side-project. One that wasn't taken seriously at the time, but
    is now considered central to the history of climate change science. It’s
    also a story of a broken heart (or at least a broken relationship),
    maths and volcanoes.

    "The common enemy of humanity is man.
    In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up
    with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming,
    water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these
    dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through
    changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome.
    The real enemy then, is humanity itself

    "We need to get some broad based support,
    to capture the public's imagination...
    So we have to offer up scary scenarios,
    make simplified, dramatic statements
    and make little mention of any doubts...
    Each of us has to decide what the right balance
    is between being effective and being honest.
