Global heating has caused ‘shocking’ changes in forests across the Americas, studies find
Trees are advancing into the Arctic tundra and retreating from boreal forests further south, where stunting and die-offs are expectedForests from the Arctic to the Amazon are transforming at a “shocking” rate due to the climate crisis, with trees advancing into previously barren tundra in the north while dying off from escalating heat farther south, scientists have found.Global heating, along with changes in soils, wind and available nutrients, is rapidly changing the composition of forests, making them far less resilient and prone to diseases, according to a series of studies that have analyzed the health of trees in north and South America.

Spare me the fuss about children born ‘out of wedlock’ – this is the 21st century | Rhiannon Lucy Cosslett
Marriage is much less of a priority than it used to be, and giving a child a loving upbringing requires more than a ring and a vicar Is there a word less erotic in the English language than “wedlock”? Some entirely unoriginal people would, of course, argue that “moist” is worse, but for me nothing beats wedlock. (Other than “hubby”.) Seeing it appear in the papers, in light of new figures showing that the majority of babies in England and Wales were born “out of wedlock” in 2021, brought on a strong feeling of queasiness.It’s a similar feeling to the one provoked by reading about the rollback of abortion rights in the US: the anxiety that the past is so not as distant as you, an autonomous woman in the 21st century, once thought. It’s a reminder that there are still people in the world who think in terms of words like “wedlock” and “bastards” and “illegitimate”, and, usually, “sin”.Rhiannon Lucy Cosslett is a Guardian columnist and author Continue reading...

Fate of ‘sleeping giant’ East Antarctic ice sheet ‘in our hands’ – study
Melting of the world’s biggest ice sheet would cause catastrophic sea level rise, but can be avoided with fast climate actionThe fate of the world’s biggest ice sheet rests in the hands of humanity, a new analysis has shown. If global heating is limited to 2C, the vast East Antarctic ice sheet should remain stable, but if the climate crisis drives temperatures higher, melting could drive up sea level by many metres.The East Antarctic ice sheet (EAIS) holds the vast majority of Earth’s glacier ice. Sea levels would rise by 52 metres if it all melted. It was thought to be stable, but is now showing signs of vulnerability, the scientists said. Continue reading...

Fall review – wildly effective survival thriller delivers seat-edge suspense
Two young women are trapped on top of a 2,000ft tower in an absolutely absurd yet undeniably effective nightmarePre-release debates over the title of Jordan Peele’s patchy summer hit Nope were settled last month when the secretive writer-director revealed that no, it wasn’t an acronym for “not of planet earth” but was something far more simple. It was, as others had expected, a nod to what many audiences are accustomed to wearily shouting at the screen during a horror film. Investigate that unsettling sound coming from a barely lit basement in a remote house late at night? Nope! Accept a lift from a creepy stranger in a blood-spattered pick-up truck? Nope! Climb up an ancient and abandoned 2,000ft radio tower without support, food or alerting anyone else first? Nope!With the release of ridiculous yet undeniably rattling new thriller Fall, it’ll be heard on a loop from cinemagoers across the US this weekend, said first with an eye-roll before being screamed through sweat-drenched fingers. Hinged on a setup so stupid that it takes some strength to make it through the first 15 minutes without checking out, the buzz-free August surprise manages to erase all early doubt with enough genuine seat-edge suspense to turn it into the most exciting and effectively agonising action movie of the summer. I found it hard not to quietly cheer while watching this tiny-budgeted underdog swoop in and climb its way to the top of the tower; Mavericks, Thors and Grey Men falling away with speed.

Eunice Olumide review – engaging stories are light on jokes
Stand New Town theatre, EdinburghMaking her fringe standup debut after blazing a trail through modelling and activism, Olumide has some promising material but it fails to come togetherFashion model, actor, activist – is there anything Eunice Olumide can’t do? Well, on the evidence of her fringe comedy debut AfroPolitiCool, her standup skills need polish. Her laudable ambition with the show is to offer an overview of global politics from the distinctive perspective of an Afro-Scot. Here is a woman whose identity has confused nearly everyone, from her schoolteachers, via visiting aunties from Nigeria, to black Brixtonians confounded by her Trainspotting accent. That’s the stuff of the show’s opening 10 minutes, which are promising, not least because Olumide has charisma to burn.What she doesn’t have is a coherent show, or remotely well-developed jokes. Practically every routine, to the degree that they even coalesce into routines, is several drafts shy of effectiveness. Boris Johnson’s hair looks like a toilet brush. Joe Biden is old. China is taking over Africa and, er, the chicken shops are in danger of turning into Chinese restaurants. This flimsiness is a shame, because I would love to hear some thought-through comedy about China in Africa, or Ukraine through an anti-racist lens, or the teaching of critical race theory – all of which Olumide mentions, but hasn’t written (m)any jokes about.
