US fossil CO emissions have gone down at ~1.5% per year in the last decade. Nearly all the declines are in electricity, with a shift from coal to gas & renewables. Transport, industry & other sectors remain stubborn.

Low hanging fruit (coal) has been picked. Everything else remains ripe for the picking.

Quoted @prashantrao

Around the world, people are adapting to climate change. In Bangladesh, that adaptation is having an impact on restaurant menus, as farmers switch from raising chickens to raising ducks. @SavageSusannah explains why https://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2019/07/bangladesh-climate-change-floods-ducks/593581/

Ducks have long been part of rural Bengali cuisine. They can also swim. That makes them better survivors in extreme weather.
