Oh. My. God. An Apple IIe. Sat in my parents’ attic for years. Decades. And it works. Put in an old game disk. Asks if I want to restore a saved game. And finds one! It must be 30 years old. I’m 10 years old again.

Good cite. That was 2011. I wonder if there’s a study since then.

Tiny climate heroes. They fix carbon by the ton and drop it to the bottom of the sea. My favorite is “Ehux”—Emiliana huxleyi.

Yes we (Church etc.) are bringing back an approximate woolly mammoth in quantity to repopulate their old habitat. Though the extinction rate is somewhat up, it is far from Mass. De-extinction is rarely a cure—it’s too expensive and difficult.

The effects are mostly from climate change—more CO2 and longer growing seasons—but the reforestation is great to see.

Female trouts ftw. "Female trout “fake orgasms,” quivering as though they’re about to lay eggs, perhaps so that undesired males will release their sperm and be on their way."

"Since 2005, the number of floods across the world has increased by 15 times, extreme temperature events by 20 times, and wildfires sevenfold" - sorry but this cannot possibly be right. Scientific literature does not support this at all.
