**Sea level rise from ice sheets track worst-case climate change scenario**

"Ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica whose melting rates are rapidly increasing have raised the global sea level by 1.8cm since the 1990s, and are matching the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's worst-case climate warming scenarios."

Wow. Not loving the new Firefox (for Android). Address on the bottom is dumb, and now I can't rearrange any of my tabs. Flawless update, fuckers.

With the political chaos ongoing and yet to happen, we should be looking to the future and how we can replace the broken patchwork of nationalism with a global framework for human unification.

We need to enable equal access to our democracies with a citizen-verifiable chain of trust. At the same time, it would be nice if we modernize the process with automation, cryptography, and open standards. IMHO, anything less is intended as theft of your rights as a citizen of this planet.

So many people saying they're switching from Firefox. Won't this only make the problem worse?

If you're switching to Brave or qutebrowser or UnGoogled Chromium or something, you're only strengthening Google's monopoly. If you're switching to a Webkit-based browser like Epiphany, you're shifting the monopoly towards Safari, whose parent company doesn't consider the Web a priority.

That Mozilla has bad management doesn't change the fact that Firefox is the most viable option for the open web.

I'm voting no confidence.

No Confidence in 2020!

Just heard a kid screaming, "That's my favorite stick! I need it! Give it to me! I'll kill you!"

Coal is probably the only one here who truly understands.

Climate change 

“I used to think that top environmental problems were biodiversity loss, ecosystem collapse and climate change. I thought that thirty years of good science could address these problems.

I was wrong.

The top environmental problems are selfishness, greed and apathy, and to deal with these we need a cultural and spiritual transformation.

And we scientists don’t know how to do that.”

- Gus Speth, Author and Top U.S. Advisor on Climate Change

I am heavily displeased with the fact that things are bad. I would much rather that things be good instead. Thank you.

Congratulations, everyone! You did it!

I absolutely support the cessation of Oregon and other states from the tyranny of stupid that is the United States.

I sincerely wonder why anyone actually quotes Trump as a credible authority on literally anything anymore? Instead, quote someone who knows what they're talking about or, at the very least, someone who has a shred of integrity. Including commentary from a demented attention whore does not improve your article. That is all.
