IPCC Sixth Assessment Report

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released their sixth assessment report that projects five climate emergency scenarios based on current and future global emissions. The report shows that a 1.5 degree temperature increase is already locked in, and can only be reduced in the future if we hit net zero emissions by 2025. If the planet reaches net zero emission just after 2030, we are guaranteed a 2+ degree increase until after 2050.

Phantom Warships

The AIS (Automatic identification system) is used (under international law) by naval vessels to broadcast and track their position on the water, to avoid collisions and aid search and rescue. The transponders on each vessel broadcast data that is detected by land based AIS stations and satellites. It turns out some AIS ground stations have been picking up phantom warships from different countries in places where they shouldn't be, the waters of other sovereign nations.
