This outfit was a combination of natural colored linen with a resist shibori/eco print ruffle. The black splotches (caused by the rust water/egg white mixture I was dipping the maple leaves into) were my attempt to disguise the blob I accidentally got on the yellow trying to chase the kitten off. The jacquard linen pants where dyed in the same dye bath as the ruffle.

Tina Givens dress pattern. Sonya Philips pants pattern.

Wore it to work yesterday and I felt lovely! 🙂  (Didn’t wear with with the striped shirt, wore a black short sleeved shirt since it is still warm here).

There has been a bit of excitement and confusion this week about a new paper in Nature Geoscience, claiming that we can still limit global warming to below 1.5 °C above preindustrial temperatures, whilst emitting another ~800 Gigatons of carbon dioxide. That’s much more than previously thought, so how come? And while that sounds like very welcome good news, is it true? Here’s the key points...

The science news media has a pretty simple job: Find facts, and report them. Typically, this entails reading a scientific study, talking to the study’s authors and outside experts, writing, and fact-checking the confusing bits with experts again. But sometimes, the narrative the media wants isn’t actually supported by the study, or the experts. Such is the case with a new paper on climate change...
