Environmental writer Andrew Revkin’s tumblelog recently highlighted a study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences that inspired today’s “What on Earth?” The study analyzed sediment layers along the east coast of the U.S., concluding that sea levels have risen faster since the 1890′s than during any other period in at least 2,000 years. There were times the levels rose and fell… but our current period is KING! WE RULE!
CONTEST: YOU COULD APPEAR IN A CARTOON!
A drawing of you could appear in the July 15th “What on Earth?” comic strip. Here’s how:
- Use the “What on Earth?” Facebook page to get us your name and photo
- Tell us your favorite “What on Earth?” character — Bebbo the polar bear or Kito the puffin
- It needs to be in our hands by next Friday, July 8.
- One “Bebbo” voter and one “Kito” voter will be randomly selected to appear in the 7/15 “What on Earth?”
