The following was written on Thursday, Sept. 26, as a post on Facebook, before the release of the IPCC report on Friday. It was edited and re-posted here on Sunday, Sept. 29.
Tomorrow you will likely hear about a new global warming report released from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). It will claim that scientists are more certain than ever (95 per cent certainty) that humans are causing the Earth to warm.

(And that’s Nathalie up there winning her very own weed whacker! So funny!)
Spending the day together reminded us how much we love what we do with this blog, and how lucky we are that our friendship has become such a rewarding creative collaboration.
One thing we realized after the conference, though, was that while there are thousands of you who read and know us, we don’t know you and you don’t know each other. And we’d like to change that.
Which is why we are finally (finally!) on Facebook! If you like what you’ve been reading on 4 Mothers, we’d be so grateful if you would
