I got 8192 once. But I gave up after that. I tried to see how far I could go on an app that allows up to 100 undos, and I don't think I even got to 8192 on that. At this point, I think 4096 is skill. Anything past that is skill plus extremely rare exceptional luck. But maybe that's just the bias I have from the fact that I've only made it that far once.
The troubling thing about climate change is that the ocean is rapidly absorbing all of the extra heat that is building up. Even though the weather has been getting worse and worse, the warming in the atmosphere is actually being mitigated, because of the ocean's heat capacity. What is happening in the ocean is scary!
To date, research on the effects of climate change has underestimated the contribution of seawater expansion to sea level rise due to warming of the oceans. A team of researchers at the University of Bonn has now investigated, using satellite data, that this effect was almost twice as large over the past twelve years than previously assumed. That may result in, for example, significantly increased risks of storm surges. The scientists are present...

Seems silly right? But it's actually really interesting and important for public health! A grant from the Gates foundation was given to a team at the University of Wollongong to develop the 'condom of the future'.
"The Foundation says that despite condoms being cheap, easy to manufacture, easy to distribute, and available globally, the “stigma” of decreased pleasure can prevent their use."

Even if everyone in California cut back on their personal water consumption by 50%, that would only save us 2% of the water. So, this is why taking shorter showers or not getting served water at a restaurant won't really help California's drought.
