Subscribe to ZME Science

If you enjoy our posts, then how about subscribing to our RSS feed? You won’t have to visit the website every day, our posts will be in your reader or mailbox as soon as we post them, so you won’t have to worry about missing any tips and pointers from us.

There are a lot of methods for subscribing, each adapted for everyone’s needs, so that you can catch up with your favorite blogs more easily, productively and a lot more fun.

Uhm wait, I don’t understand what RSS is?

No problem, let me explain to you the phenomenon. RSS stands for “Really Simple Syndication”, and it really does live up to its name, it doesn’t get any easier. According to Wikipedia:

RSS is a family of Web feed formats used to publish frequently updated content such as blog entries, news headlines or podcasts. An RSS document, which is called a “feed”, “web feed”, or “channel”, contains either a summary of content from an associated web site or the full text. RSS makes it possible for people to keep up with their favorite web sites in an automated manner that’s easier than checking them manually.

How do I use RSS?

There are currently two kinds of RSS readers: online and offline. The advantage of online ones is that you can check your feed from anywhere on earth that has an internet connection, it’s also free, while the offline reader provides a more secure and friendly environment. Basically, RSS is an email service, it’s the simplest way of describing how it works. If you’re a beginner I would suggest you start off with a web based reader like Google Reader, Bloglines, Netvibes etc. I personally use Google because it’s the easiest to handle and organize.

I don’t want to use a reader, can I get your feed in my e-mail inbox?

Of course, you can, we offer the possibility of e-mail subscribing. You’ll receive an e-mail a day, sent at a particular hour, containing all of our posts from that particular day. We guarantee your privacy and that you won’t be bombarded with spam. You can unsubscribe from our feed at any time, but let’s hope that you don’t ;).

ZME Science is supporting and participating in the September 2019 Climate Strike.

Our planet is burning up. Throughout Earth’s history, the planetary climate has varied substantially over geologic time -- but this time, it’s different.

There is unequivocal scientific evidence that our emissions of greenhouse gases (most notably CO2 but also methane and others) are fueling this heating and without strong and timely measures, the damage will be catastrophic.

We are already approximately 1 °C (1.62 F) above pre-industrial levels. Limiting the heating to 2 °C (or even better, 1.5 °C) is mandatory if we want to prevent irreversible, catastrophic damage to the environment, to our society, and potentially to ourselves as a species. This would require sustained global action from all the world’s countries -- and this is just not happening.

The science is in. We know the cause of the problem, and we know how to fix it. All that’s required now is the political and social impetus to bring forth these healthy changes. If we continue with “business as usual”, we will be the ones responsible for unprecedented disasters. We have to do more to ensure a sustainable, low carbon transition. We owe it to this planet, we owe it to ourselves, and we owe it to our children.

Today, ZME Science will not be publishing any new stories. We will be highlighting scientific evidence on climate change and what can be done to limit it.We hope you will join us in the quest for building a better world for ourselves and future generations.

Thank you!
