NOTE ON POPULAR POSTS

The reason some popular posts are tagged ‘no title’ is not because they have no title—they all do—but because the old Blogger embedded the title at the top of text, and the new software does not see that. You can see the titles in capitals at the start of each snippet. (It would be nice if Blogger introduced an upgrade program that could fix this little problem.)

WE ARE ADDING CO2 14000 TIMES FASTER

The full report is in ScienceDaily.

The BBC's report has a simpler presentation of the same information with a slightly different emphasis.
