Quasar tsunamis rip across galaxies

Astronomers using the Hubble Telescope found that the region around a quasar’s black hole pushes out material at a few percent the speed of light. These quasar tsunamis wreak havoc on the galaxies in which the quasars live.

More days with temperatures above normal are part of a global warming pattern – WMTV

MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) It’s well known that March has been on the wetter side of things. One thing that might not be as well known is that temperatures are also running above normal. If this wet and warm pattern continues,…

As the ocean warms, marine species relocate toward the poles

Since pre-industrial times, the world’s oceans have warmed by an average of one degree Celsius (1°C). Now researchers report that those rising temperatures have led to widespread changes in the population sizes of marine species. The researchers found a general pattern of species having increasing numbers on their poleward sides and losses toward the equator.

Coral tells own tale about El Niño’s past

(Rice University) Rice University and Georgia Tech scientists use data from ancient coral to build a record of temperatures in the tropical Pacific Ocean over the last millennium. The data question previous links between volcanic eruptions and El Niño events.

Quantum phenomenon governs organic solar cells

(Linköping University) Researchers at Linköping University have discovered a quantum phenomenon that influences the formation of free charges in organic solar cells. ‘If we can properly understand what’s going on, we can increase the efficiency’, says Olle Inganäs, professor emeritus.

The Caucasus without a cap

(National Research University Higher School of Economics) Global warming has caused the total area of more than 600 Greater Caucasus glaciers to drop by approximately 16%, according to an international research team that includes Stanislav Kutuzov, geographer from HSE University. Glaciers without rock debris coverage have decreased more than those with debris coverage. https://www.the-cryosphere.net/14/585/2020/

Bobble-Headed Biden Repeats Debunked Climate Talking Points

Joe Biden’s plan to manage the coronavirus outbreak included a promise to “fight climate change as a driver of health threats” by rejoining the Paris climate treaty on day one of his administration. His proposal went on to state that…

New model helps explain seasonal variations in urban heat islands

(Duke University) Rising temperatures and shifting rainfall patterns linked to climate change may alter the seasonality of urban heat islands in coming decades. A new model simplifies predictions of ‘urban heat islands’ based on temperature, sunlight and rainfall.

Is Global Warming Real? How Humans Are Causing the Climate Crisis – Green Matters

As touched on above, the rising global temperature is linked to a variety of other extreme events. Basically, global warming and climate change are not interchangeable terms by definition, but global warming is a large component of climate change. Climate…
