People in Maryland love their Baltimore orioles — so much so that their major league baseball team bears the name of the migrating bird. Yet, by 2080, there may not be any orioles left in Maryland. They migrate each year and, according to a new report, could soon be forced to nest well north of the Mid-Atlantic state.

And the oriole is not alone. A seven-year study published Tuesday by the National Audubon Society warns that the migratory routes and habitats of more than half of the birds in North America are now or soon will be threatened by climate change.

This was fantastic:

"Louisiana Loses Its Boot: The boot-shaped state isn’t shaped like a boot anymore. That’s why we revised its iconic outline to reflect the truth about a sinking, disappearing place."

So I made these maps to see what the rest of the Gulf coast would like like without its “walkable” land.

Great long read on the shape of Louisiana and the relative truth of maps in general.

This is Alex Holden, the Milwaukee guy whose discovery of massive Russian identity theft is the lead story at the New York Times.
Given this photo running with the NYT story, it would appear that his firm operates with lean PR and office furniture budgets.

The Royal Society accepted James Cook to convey the scientific staff of the expedition to observe the transit of Venus due to occur on 3rd June 1769. Cook left England on Aug. 12, 1768 and, after the momentous discovery of New South Wales, arrived at Otaheite [i.e. Tahiti] on April 13, 1769 in plenty of time to build an observatory to carefully measure the transit across the Sun’s sphere on June 3, an event which occurs only twice within 8 years once every 120 years. Relief is shown by hachures and pictorially for ground cover.



So this is what happened to Ice Cream Island after it got a little bit too warm.
