New Study Reports NYC Is Sinking…As Sea Levels Defy Alarmist Predictions

In New York City, like the rest of the world, alarming rates of accelerated sea-level rise continue to…not happen. In 1986, Dr. James Hansen, the Godfather of global warming alarmism, claimed Earth’s temperature would rise by about 4°F between 1986…

Mixing of the planet’s ocean waters is slowing down, speeding up global warming, study finds – Washington Post

The reduced up and down mixing is expected to have sweeping implications beyond just accelerating global warming. It is projected to increase energy available to hurricanes and other storms, reduce essential nutrients for fish in upper ocean layers and diminish…

Many ventilation systems may increase risk of COVID-19 exposure, study suggests

Ventilation systems in many modern office buildings, which are designed to keep temperatures comfortable and increase energy efficiency, may increase the risk of exposure to the coronavirus, particularly during the coming winter, according to new research.

Is it one or two species? The case of the cluster anemones

(Università di Bologna) Their scientific name is “Parazoanthus axinellae” and they are among the most fascinating corals of the Mediterranean Sea. A genetic analysis suggests they may belong to two different species and, therefore, there could be two types of cluster anemone. Researchers claim this may lead to more effective conservation strategies against the negative impact of climate change on this sea population

Redefining drought in the US corn belt

(University of Illinois College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences) As the climate trends warmer and drier, global food security increasingly hinges on crops’ ability to withstand drought. But are scientists and producers focusing on the right metric when measuring crop-relevant drought? Not exactly, according to new research from University of Illinois scientists, who urge the scientific community to redefine the term.

Ancient Adélie penguin colony revealed by snowmelt at Cape Irizar, Ross Sea, Antarctica

Researchers encountered a puzzle at Cape Irizar, a rocky cape located just south of the Drygalski Ice Tongue on the Scott Coast, Ross Sea. He found both ancient and what appeared to be fresh remains of Adelie penguins, mostly of chicks, which frequently die and accumulate at these colonies. However, the ‘fresh’ remains were puzzling, he says, because there are no records of an active penguin colony at this site.

Increasing stability decreases ocean productivity, reduces carbon burial

As the globe warms, the atmosphere is becoming more unstable, but the oceans are becoming more stable, according to an international team of climate scientists, who say that the increase in stability is greater than predicted, and a stable ocean will absorb less carbon and be less productive.

Climate Change’s Biggest Joke: Go Vegan, Save The Planet

Sadly, the world already has 1.5 billion vegetarians but only 75 million by choice. The rest can not afford the health-giving protein and fat in meat. As they move out of poverty they will likely happily bring meat into their…
