    • ABC News & Daily Telegraph

    Reports by scientists that climate change has damaged the Great Barrier Reef beyond repair have been greatly exaggerated. Once again, climate alarmists have ignored the science of  coral bleaching which is a regular El Niño-linked occurrence and regularly leads to post-El Niño recovery. Optimism is rising among scientists that parts of the Great Barrier Reef that were severely […]

    • Alexei A. Pevtsov and Frédéric Clette, EOS

    Solar activity waxes and wanes in 10- to 11-year cycles; this is now general public knowledge. However, we know this only because of existing long-term records. Thanks to these histories, we also know that properties of solar cycles vary on timescales of 100 years and even longer. Thus, some of the most important processes on […]
