Earth is on track to face devastating consequences of climate change – extreme drought, food shortages and deadly flooding – unless there’s an “unprecedented” effort made to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, a new United Nations report warns. The planet’s surface has already warmed by 1 degree Celsius – or 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit – and could see a catastrophic 1.5 C — 2.7 F — increase between 2030 and 2052, scientists say. “This is concerning because we know there are so many more problems if we exceed 1.5 degrees C global warming, including more heat waves and hot summers, greater sea level rise, and, for many parts of the world, worse droughts and rainfall extremes,” Andrew King, a climate science academic at the University of Melbourne, said in a statement to CNN. The stunning statistics were released Monday in a report by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which warned that we … [Read more...] about Terrifying climate change warning: 12 years until we’re doomed
Jim Owczarski Packers News Published 5:26 PM EDT Oct 7, 2018 DETROIT – The Green Bay Packers dug themselves a large hole early in the game for the third time this season, and for the second time it was too big a deficit to come back from in a 31-23 loss Sunday to the Detroit Lions at Ford Field. The Packers fell behind 24-0 at the break as the Lions were able to take advantage of a slew of special teams errors and two Aaron Rodgers fumbles to race out to a big lead. Rodgers and his receivers found some chemistry in the second half to pull within 24-14 and then 31-20 but couldn’t stack multiple stops on defense, and the offense couldn’t score quickly enough to outpace the Lions. Five missed Mason Crosby kicks (including an extra point) left 13 points on the table for Green Bay. "I thought our guys fought ... being down (24-0) was a hole we couldn't dig ourselves out of," coach Mike McCarthy said. "The negatives (were) the penalties and … [Read more...] about Another slow start, missed kicks doom Packers in loss to Lions.

Welcome to On Politics, your guide to the day in national politics. I’m Lisa Lerer, your host. We spend a lot of time talking about how President Trump is transforming the Republican Party. But don’t forget that Democrats are in the midst of their own reinvention, too — a surge of left-wing energy that has split the party ahead of the 2020 election. Gov. Jerry Brown of California says he doesn’t know how it’s all going to shake out. But he seemed like a pretty good guy to ask. Since he entered state politics in 1971, as the son of a former governor, Mr. Brown has been a fixture in the Democratic Party. He’s won (four terms as governor); lost (three presidential races); left politics to study Buddhism in Japan; dated … [Read more...] about On Politics With Lisa Lerer: Jerry Brown Says We’re Doomed
YOB bio: Epic, crushing, and heavy beyond words, YOB has achieved legendary status in recent years due to their unmatched aesthetic and incredible body of work. Formed in 1996 in Eugene, Oregon under the leadership of doom metal mastermind Mike Scheidt on guitars and vocals, the group initially released a three song demo tape in 2000 that garnered them international attention. Drawing comparisons to groups like Neurosis, Sleep and Electric Wizard, YOB succeeded in developing modern sounding doom metal that hearkened back to the classics. In 2002, YOB released their debut album Elaborations of Carbon followed by Catharsis in 2003, a three song record that clocked in at a colossal 50 minutes. The buzz about YOB was beginning to grow and the trio began to tour more extensively. Remaining quite prolific during this period, YOB continued to release an album each year with The Illusion of Motion coming in 2004 followed by The Unreal Never Lived in 2005. Despite all the momentum, YOB … [Read more...] about YOB • Acid King • doom metal, stoner • Chrch • drone
Castle Rock premieres on Hulu on July 25 In its first 10 minutes, Hulu’s horror-drama Castle Rock establishes itself as something of a Stephen King buffet, a comfort-food miniseries providing familiar, undistinguished fare that’s lightly spiced with proper nouns you might recall from earlier, better meals. Here’s Castle Rock, the small town haunted by the memory of horrors everyone politely agrees not to mention out loud, a miserable burg where the only jobs are at the local prison, Shawshank. (That name is lingered over in the pilot, a revelation.) Here’s the usual missing kid, searched for by the whole town, though this time — a twist! — he’s found safe and sound, before the prologue ends. Then cut to years later, witness a mordant suicide more Edward Gorey than gory, and find the brand new warden of ol’ Shawshank on her first day posing this immortal query to her idiot subordinates: “You’re telling me that my predecessor … [Read more...] about Hulu’s Castle Rock Is, for Better and Worse, an All-You-Can-Eat Stephen King Buffet
