Anthropocene Times

~ 100 buzzes
Anthropocene Times features many stories on climate change, but it's a bit different than the average climate news site.

We admire the things 350 does but we're at 400ppm and accelerating. We don't have any room for feel good clickbait home recycling stories that pretend it'll all be OK.

Climate change has follow on affects for ecosystems, human society, and there are geopolitical issues that don't get addressed due to politicized climate change denialism in the U.S. This is an existential threat to our species and the tender feelings of coal and oil industry lobbyists don't concern us at all.

This hive could use a few more editors, but we need people who understand the science, who read weighty stuff, and who track related issues on an ongoing basis.
