Not so good climate news 

Have we already passed 1.5 degrees of warming? Uh oh! Why didn't this get more attention in the media? According to a 2021 news report, among other scary facts, a  world that's warmed 1.5  degrees  means the loss of 75-90% of coral reefs worldwide. How do you feel about that? Let's double down and increase the speed of transitioning away from fossil fuels.  Thank you to Cristian IS of Ecuador for use of this image!
