I wonder whose boat it is....

I am transcribing old whaling records for sea ice research

This record is from the Lucretia of New Bedford for August 6th 1883, she is stuck at Point (or Cape) Barrow
watching the ice clostley as yet sea no sines of it breaking up close packed around the Point

Its interesting to see how the melting has changed since then

I just hope ER has legs...I remember the ecomovement of the Sixties. Those hippies are now the old fogies and CO2 rise has been exponential for half a century with nary a blip.

I'm retired now, but going up to the Extinction Rebellion camp I felt an adrenaline rush of excitement - and plenty of people my age were there too, including many that were arrested including the two from my local XR group.  We've still got energy to fight, and the freedom from employment concerns to do it

The Govt Environment Minister (Michael Gove ) has apparently just agreed to meet Greta Thunberg and Extinction Rebellion, ( so things are moving on the official acknowledgement side at least.
Over the week of action so far, it feels as if the UK press are subtly shifting their ground, from decrying 'eco-rabble' last week to 'they might have a point' this week

Greetings  from Extinction Rebellion Marble Arch! Two of my friends were arrested at Waterloo Bridge but they are back here again. It's a marvellous atmosphere , I went to the initial rebellion in October, amazing how far it has come in 6 months

I saw that the snow cover extent graph ( does not seem to be updated from 18-12 - is it usually updated daily?

The time has come  :)


That will take some time to get through and find all interesting parts. I hope some forum members can explore it too.
Hi I am a longtime lurker, just retired from full-time IT a month ago after being contract IT developer for 40+ years, I was about to post asking for any projects to get involved in - this sounds great. I shall get going today with pleasure

Hi I am a longtime lurker. Inspired by a post on Jason Box's Twitter feed I was one of the 1000 people at the Declaration of Rebellion for Extinction Rebellion on Wednesday. It was a glorious autumn day and I felt privileged to be at the start of something so significant.
