    “They also found that 24 percent of those sandy beaches—a coastline distance of almost 80,000 kilometers (50,000 miles)—had eroded at rates exceeding 0.5 meters per year. Another 28 percent of sandy beaches had accreted (grew), while 48 percent remained stable.”

    And some honesty from NASA on the areas that are receding in protected areas “Since these areas should be beyond human intervention, it is not clear why these beaches are shrinking”

    Here in KY, we never got over 90°F this past Summer.
    And that was TWO days of 90°F for the whole Summer.
    Actually, we had a very comfortable Summer here in rural KY.
    But NOW…it’s cold as a witches you know what!

    Tony, great summary as usual. One area I never see mentioned (perhaps I missed it if you touched on it) is the Mona loa co2 data. We closed the world economy for 6 months in 2020 and Mona loa shows exactly the same pattern and trend as the last 50 years. Why don’t I read any papers on the fact we stopped human co2 and it seemed to have no effect. Would appreciate if you could explain what’s happening.
