”The team calculated that the two ice sheets together lost 81 billion tons per year in the 1990s compared with 475 billion tons of ice per year in the 2010s—a sixfold increase.”…
In all honesty, this article should end right here as 475 billion tons of ice mass loss per annum versus 81 billion tons per annum within only two decades is so riveting and daunting and over the top that nothing more needs to be said. But, there is more….

1/ O.k, so after the #ClimateDebate you're hearing a lot about ambitious proposals for #treeplanting as means of sucking - sequestrating - carbon dioxide from the atmosphere to help get to #netzero emissions. Here's the good, the bad, and the ugly of it...

To all of you who think, we might have time to stop global warming at 2.5°C: Main message here is, that tipping cascades could turn #ClimateChange into an express lift. If we miss our stop at somewhat about 2°C, we might be rushing straight towards 4°C, 5°C or more. #TellTheTruth
