    • Daily Caller, NASA

    Ancient underground streams of heated rock, called a mantle plume, might be an explanation for the instability of Antarctica’s western ice sheet, according to a new NASA study. Scientists have been debating whether or not mantle plume heat contributes to western Antarctica’s instability. Some recent studies provided evidence this might be the case, but even […]

    ‘I think it is really important to resist the New York Times editor’s impulse to say that ocean acidification is wreaking all sorts of havoc right now, because for ecological systems, we don’t have the evidence to say that.’ JunkScience.com got NOAA scientist e-mails via FOIA? Why can’t Congress?     Last October, the New York […]

  • Scottish Summertime Temperatures Not Significantly Warmer Than During Medieval Warm Periods, Scientists Find

    • Date: 06/11/17
    • Miloš Rydval et al., Climate Dynamics, November 2017, Volume 49, Issue 9–10, pp 2951–2974

    Within the context of reconstruction uncertainty, recent summertime warming in Scotland is not significantly more pronounced than past reconstructed warm periods (e.g. around 1300 and 1500). Abstract – This study presents a summer temperature reconstruction using Scots pine tree-ring chronologies for Scotland allowing the placement of current regional temperature changes in a longer-term context. ‘Living-tree’ chronologies […]

  • In 1540, Europe Was Likely Warmer Than Today, Scientists Conclude

    • Date: 01/11/17
    • Rene Orth et al., Environmental Research Letters

    ‘Our results show medium confidence that summer mean temperatures and maximum temperatures in Central Europe in 1540 were warmer than the respective present-day mean summer temperatures.’   Abstract: There is strong evidence that the year 1540 was exceptionally dry and warm in Central Europe. Here we infer 1540 summer temperatures from the number of dry days (NDDs) […]

  • New Paper: Sustainability Threatens Public Health In The Developing World

    • Date: 31/10/17
    • Mikko Paunio, Priorities Magazine

    Current conservation policies often clash with public health initiatives in the developing world but they get little attention. There are real harms in advocating water and energy conservation over people. We take sanitary practices for granted in wealthier countries but hygienic practices require water in quantity and uninterrupted power to supply that water and related […]

  • Green Killing Machines: Among ‘Green’ Energy, Hydropower Is The Most Dangerous

    • Date: 25/10/17
    • University of Hong Kong

    Many governments are promoting a move away from fossil fuels towards renewable energy sources. However, in a new study published, scientists highlight some of the ecological dangers this wave of ‘green’ energy poses. “We know that burning fossil fuels is damaging the environment and warming the climate,” said Dr. Luke Gibson, Honorary Assistant Professor of […]
