• Corals Have Genes To Survive Another 100-250 Years Of Climate Change

    • Date: 23/04/18
    • Jo Nova

    A new paper finds that there is already enough genetic variety spread across the Great Barrier Reef to adapt to the imagined “unprecedented” warming coming in the next two centuries. We don’t need to rely on random mutations or consider fantasy solutions of man-made oceanic sunscreens, mass sunshades, or giant reef fans. Corals already have […]

  • New Study: Corals Can Withstand Another 100-250 Years Of Climate Change

    • Date: 20/04/18
    • PLOS Genetics,

    Heat-tolerant genes may spread through coral populations fast enough to give the marine creatures a tool to survive another 100-250 years of warming in our oceans. Can genetic adaptation in reef-building corals keep pace with the current rate of sea surface warming? Here we combine population genomics, biophysical modeling, and evolutionary simulations to predict future […]

    ‘The loss of credible information is the real harm that has resulted from turning scientific inquiry into an agenda driven exercise … even for a good cause.’ Polar bear specialist Mitch Taylor emailed me and others his response to the New York Times article that appeared Tuesday (10 April) about the Harvey et al. (2018) BioScience paper attacking my scientific integrity. Here it is […]

  • British Antarctic Snowfall Study Deepens the Mystery of Global Warming

    • Date: 10/04/18
    • Outer Place

    Previous climate change models predicted that global sea levels would rise by a meter by the year 2100 due in part to melting Antarctic ice, but those estimates have proven to be flawed. Over the past century, the Antarctic has gone from being a vast Terra Incognita to a continent-sized ticking time bomb: according to NASA, Antarctica has […]

  • Astronomers Just Found They’ve Been Completely Wrong About These Giant Sun Tornadoes

    • Date: 06/04/18
    • Science Alert

    Whoops. Scientists have discovered that the massive bursts of solar activity we call ‘solar tornadoes’ are not at all like the twisters we get here on Earth – even though they sure appeared similar on a gigantic scale. The term describes the enormous eruptions of gas that appear to swirl up from the Sun’s surface, but […]
