Alert for HotWhopper email subscribers to resubscribe

Sorry for not following up my last post sooner. There'll be another climate post shortly. 

My excuse is being consumed by the Delta variant of SARS-CoV-2. Not me personally, I hasten to add. It's a big problem in the state next door, NSW, and has slipped from there into my home state, Victoria, a couple of times (and other parts of Australia). That's meant lockdowns to get us back to zero COVID-19. Having a slightly obsessive tendency, I've been spending too much time on the endless press conferences, news articles and tweets about the subject. This has been at the expense of writing blog articles about climate change, I'm sorry to say.

While I'm preparing the next article (or procrastinating on its writing) I want to alert people who signed up for email alerts to new articles here on HotWhopper. The normal emails will stop because Feedburner is being shut down this month. Here's the notice:

Recently, the Feedburner team released a system update announcement , that the email subscription service will be discontinued in August 2021.

After August 2021, your feed will still continue to work, but the automated emails to your subscribers will no longer be supported. If you’d like to continue sending emails, you can download your subscriber contacts.

If you'd like to continue to receive email alerts, please let me know directly, using the email address to which you want them sent. You can do the same if you no longer want alerts, although the subs will be opt-in, not opt-out. That is, if you don't let me know you want to continue, you will no longer receive email updates. 

You can let me know either way by sending an email to subscribeHW at HotWhopper.com (replacing the "at" with @).  If you're already a subscriber, you should be receiving this article as an email already, but the emailed articles will only continue if I set it up. I'll probably use mailchimp, which AFAIK is reliable and secure.


  1. I didn't know you had email alerts! I just sent a request to opt in.

  2. Hope you're staying safe. We are, so far, but it's getting increasingly harder and harder. I live right next door to Idaho where nobody takes the pandemic seriously (little to no masking, social distancing and so on).

    The major regional hospital in Coeur D'alene for the entire northern region of Idaho has ZERO beds available now, and still the local population does not take this seriously (proof the massive disinformation works).

    So far, the plague of stupid has taken the lives of tens of thousands here, nothing seems to be able to stop it. Little children are now dying, pre-teens, teens and young people too. It's shocking, heart breaking and sad. Adults refuse to protect their own, all rather unbelievable.

    The damage that the Trump cult inflicted on this country and their response to the pandemic is truly incalculable. We all wish it would just go away, or they would go away, whatever comes first, sooner the better.

    I've pointed out that none of my freedoms have been infringed by wearing a mask, social distancing or getting the vaccine shots. So have many, many others, but there is no fixing stupid it seems. These people would rather die and kill others then do what is right. I think this means that this country is truly lost and there will be no real recovery here, ever.

    Meanwhile, I'm still blogging. Dr Ye Tao has a presentation about humanity and our chances to survive deadly climate change which I found interesting. He gives us only 20 or 30 years left before extreme heat kills off our food supply. He's got an answer that he's proposing, Earth based mirrors. I don't know if it would work, but good grief, we've GOT to get going on something.


    I look at my young grandchildren and what they're facing and it just breaks my heart. We have all miserably failed the next generation, and all future generations. We need to own up to that fact.
