An obvious thing to stop doing is participating in the cryptocurrency economy that is using an obscene amount of energy, see https://digiconomist.net/bitcoin-energy-consumption/
The real tragedy is that global warming was forecast decades ago. Even as far back as the 1912.

It's a serious situation for sure.....but I guess I'd expect the part of the world that IS ice to be melting faster than the parts of the world that aren't.
Has anyone done a study of climate denier media running headlines like this to enrage their audience?

It might just be an emergent phenomena where things that enrage everybody get most clicks, but I'd be interested to see if numbers supported that theory.

Since this is the Financial Times I'd also wonder whether you could demonstrate that their readers have lost money because the coverage of climate change is so divorced from reality, as it's not only one of the biggest catastrophes facing humankind but providing solutions to it is also one of the biggest business opportunities.

edit: I'm actually struggling to find anything troubling they've published in the last couple of years, so they may have already made the switch to accepting reality.

Similarly Sky News seems to have done a 180 degree switch in roughly the same time frame.

So are sea levels rising faster then?

One can find pictures by climate change skeptics showing old and recent photos of various piers that show no change. These are dismissed as poor evidence of the lack of change, but photos showing piers under water are elusive.

Do people on HN feel optimistic or pessimistic about the future (both near and far). It seems we are just starting to see the disastrous effects of the current levels of CO2, with no obvious attempts in the world to curb emissions (note the recent US bill just decelerates the amount being released, bit doesn't do anything to reverse the current amount).
To be pedantic, the rest of the planet is not "melting" as it's not covered in ice.

Also, this seems to be climate alarmists favorite headline: - New England shows it is warming faster than the rest of the world in new study [1] - Africa Warming More, Faster Than Other World Regions [2] - Climate: Europe warming faster than rest of world (IPCC) [3] - NOAA: Minnesota warming faster than other states [4] - Mexico is warming faster than the rest of the planet, they say [5] - New research shows the South Pole is warming faster than the rest of the world [6] Etc..

Well I would hope so. If the whole planet is melting, then where are the lava fields?
I can't read the article, but this headline is the worst. Pretty sure melting 4x faster than Arizona is still zero melting.
