Archaeologists Discover ‘Dazzling’ 3,000-Year-old Egyptian City, Left ‘As if it were yesterday’

Reprinted with permission from World At Large, a news website of nature, politics, science, health, and travel. It’s the stuff of dreams and is being hailed as the second-most important discovery since the opening of Tutankhamen’s tomb—an ancient lost city has been found near the famous Valley of the Kings. Excavations began 6 months ago in […]

Warming homogenizes apparent temperature sensitivity of ecosystem respiration – Science Advances

INTRODUCTION Terrestrial ecosystem respiration (Re), the sum of autotrophic respiration from primary producers and heterotrophic respiration from consumers and detritivores, represents a fundamental biospheric function and plays a major role in the global carbon cycle and growth rate of atmospheric…

Anti-Global-Warming-Hysteria Book Is Driving Norwegian Alarmists Nuts

Other than by misspelling “fjord,” how would an American geologist draw the ire of a pair of Norwegian politicians? Answer: Write a book that counters the notion that human activity is causing the globe to warm with catastrophic consequences. Gregory…

Global Warming Could Lead to Collapse of More than One-Third of Antarctic Ice Shelf – AZoCleantech

Written by AZoCleantechApr 9 2021 A new study shows that over one-third of the Antarctic’s ice shelf area could be at risk of crumbling into the sea if global temperatures increase to 4°C above pre-industrial levels. Image Credit: AndreAnita/shutterstock.com The comprehensive study…

48 Of 79 ‘Catastrophic Climate’ Predictions Have Failed; Other 31 Haven’t Expired Yet

A new peer-reviewed paper published in the International Journal of Global Warmingidentifies 79 “apocalyptic” predictions formulated since 1970 by “researchers and activists” who “predict cataclysmic events” resulting from “catastrophic climate change.” Already 48 of these “truly apocalyptic forecasts” have failed. The…

Egyptologists unearth a 3,000-year-old ‘lost golden city’

The long-sought “lost golden city” of Aten has been found near Luxor, Egypt, in the Valley of Kings. “The mission expects to uncover untouched tombs filled with treasures,” the scientists said.

Lemurs and giant tortoises among species at risk if global warming reaches 3°C – EURACTIV

Unique island species including lemurs and the Galapagos giant tortoise could be at high risk of extinction if the planet warms by more than 3°C above pre-industrial levels, new research warns. EURACTIV’s media partner, The Guardian, reports. Analysis of 270…

Third of Antarctic ice shelf area at collapse risk due to global warming: Study – The Hindu

They noted that when melted ice accumulates on the surface of ice shelves, it can make them fracture and collapse spectacularly. Over a third of the Antarctic’s ice shelf area may be at risk of collapsing into the sea if…

A lightweight and durable radiator for cooling electric vehicle batteries

(Peter the Great Saint-Petersburg Polytechnic University) Researchers from Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University (SPbPU) invented a durable and compact radiator for lithium-ion batteries, which in the future can be used for electric vehicles. The radiator was developed using friction stir welding technology.

Abrupt ice age climate changes behaved like cascading dominoes

(University of Copenhagen – Faculty of Science) Throughout the last ice age, the climate changed repeatedly and rapidly during so-called Dansgaard-Oeschger events, where Greenland temperatures rose between 5 and 16 degrees Celsius in decades. When certain parts of the climate system changed, other parts of the climate system followed like a series of dominos toppling in succession. Today, sea-ice extent is being rapidly reduced, and it is uncertain whether this part of the climate system can trigger sudden future climate change.
