Climate Alarmists Meltdown Over Glacier National Park (Except When They’re Growing)

A blog published earlier this month by Roger Roots, an attorney, reveals overheated desperation of a different sort than we tend to hear about in the mainstream media. Titled “Glacier National Park Quietly Removes Its ‘Gone by 2020′ Signs,” Roots’ describes…

Huge freshwater aquifer found under the ocean

Scientists have found a giant aquifer under the Northeastern U.S., estimated to hold at least 670 cubic miles of freshwater. If it was on the surface, they say, it would create a lake spanning 15,000 square miles, which is twice…

How octopus arms make decisions

Researchers studying the behavior and neuroscience of octopuses have long suspected that the animals’ arms may have minds of their own. A new model is the first attempt at a comprehensive representation of information flow between the octopus’s suckers, arms and brain, based on previous research in octopus neuroscience and behavior, and new video observations conducted in the lab.

Conceptual model can explain how thunderstorm clouds bunch together

(University of Copenhagen) Understanding how the weather and climate change is one of the most important challenges in science today. A new theoretical study from associate professor, Jan Härter, at the Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen, presents a new mechanism for the self-aggregation of storm clouds, a phenomenon, by which storm clouds bunch together in dense clusters. The researcher used methods from complexity science, and applied them to formerly established research in meteorology on the behavior of thunderstorm clouds.

As Wind Farms Overwhelm The Irish Sea, Isle Of Man Seabird Populations Plummet

Since the world’s biggest wind farm went up in the Irish Sea, Herring Gulls are down 82%, European Shag down 51%, and Razorbills down 55%. The list goes on…Isn’t there a conspicuous connection? The Isle Of Man wildlife charity Manx…

Boyan Slat's Ocean Cleanup project relaunches

A floating system of booms built to slowly but surely eradicate plastic waste from the Pacific Ocean has been redeployed after spending four months in the shop. The second deployment was a quieter affair than the first, when the much-lauded…

Damage to the ozone layer and climate change forming feedback loop

Increased solar radiation penetrating through the damaged ozone layer is interacting with the changing climate, and the consequences are rippling through the Earth’s natural systems, effecting everything from weather to the health and abundance of sea mammals like seals and penguins.

Table salt compound spotted on Jupiter’s moon Europa

Europa has an ocean, hidden beneath its icy crust. The discovery of sodium chloride – aka table salt – on the moon’s surface might be strong evidence that Europa’s ocean is very similar to Earth’s.

Do toxic gases make advanced extraterrestrial life less likely?

A new study suggests that many exoplanets – worlds orbiting distant stars – might have an overabundance of toxic gases in their atmospheres. If so, that would make the evolution of complex life forms more difficult.
