Unprecedented rainfall hits snowy summit in Greenland

On Greenland’s highest summit, snow is the norm. But on the weekend of August 14-15, it rained. A lot. Seven billion tons of water hit the ice sheet for the heaviest rainfall since researchers started keeping records in 1950. This means that Greenland is heating way, way too fast, according to senior research scientist Ted Scambos of the University of Colorado’s National Snow and Ice Data Center “What is going on is not simply a warm decade or two in a wandering climate pattern,” Scambos told CN...

Ice melt releases 'forever chemicals' into Arctic Ocean

A study by Lancaster University has found that seawater close to melting Arctic ice contains high concentrations of poly- and perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). Water samples collected from Arctic ice floes show PFAS levels two times higher than samples from the North Sea. The region under investigation lies far from the most populated areas of Europe, leading to the conclusion that the chemicals were not caused by surface water flow into the ocean. The study, led by the University of Lancaster’s...

Greenland's ice melt enough to cover Florida in water

The melting experienced on Tuesday released enough water to cover the entire state of Florida in two inches of water. This meltdown has caused concern, as continued large-scale melting of Greenland’s ice could lead to f...

Florida Man Says He’s The One Who Invented Invisible Sculpture, May Sue Artist Who Just Sold One

In early June in Milan, conceptual artist Salvatore Garau auctioned off an “immaterial sculpture” for €15,000.

Fromm and Maccoby on Cultural Stimuli

In our discussion thus far we have paid little attention to the problem of the happiness of the peasant. In fact, we have stressed the economic advantage of the productive orientation, but said little of the subjective factor of satisfaction and contentment. In order to understand this problem better, we must have in mind the important fact, mentioned in Chapter 5, that the village is a cultural and spiritual desert. The values which existed for the precapitalistic peasant, and which Tawney ha...

In Florida, It’s Now A Felony To Damage A Confederate Monument

While the “Combating Public Disorder Act” just signed by Gov. Ron DeSantis is most notorious for its provisions aimed at street protests (classifying blocking cars during a demonstration as rioting, protecting drivers who plow into a crowd of protestors from civil liability), it also makes the damaging of any “memorial” (defined as a marker that “honors or recounts the military service of any past or present”) a third-degree felony, with a sentence of up to five years in prison.

How The Arts Can Be A Tool In Community Wealth-Building
