PayPal Co-Founder Is Skeptical of Man-Made Global Warming Because warmists refuse to allow debate the subject
Moore excerpts: ‘If you keep giving these scientists millions of dollars a year to tell you that ‘you have a problem, and you need to fix it and please give me more money so I can keep studying this problem’. They will keep telling you it’s a problem. This is a self-perpetuating massive convergence of [...]
Two scientists from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), Gregory McCabe and David Wolock, recently examined historical (1951-2009) streamflow records from 516 rivers and streams that they considered to be only minimally impacted by human development. They first sorted the data into regional patterns, and then compared the temporal behavior of these patterns to common historical [...]
U. of Arizona Professor: Climate change now ‘irreversible’ – Humans must ‘terminate industrial civilization’
Full article and video interview here: http://www.3news.co.nz/tvshows/paulhenryshow/climate-change-now-irreversible-2014102123 McPherson lives in ‘a straw house in the middle of the woods surrounded by animals.’ McPherson: ‘I think we are walking around to save our own funeral expenses at this point. We have triggered 39 self-reinforcing feedback loops. Those things feed on themselves and feed on each other [...]
Climatologist Dr. Roy Spencer: ‘Why 2014 Won’t Be the Warmest Year on Record’ – ‘We are arguing over the significance of hundredths of a degree’
Spencer: ‘The two main research groups tracking global lower-tropospheric temperatures (our UAH group, and the Remote Sensing Systems [RSS] group) show 2014 lagging significantly behind 2010 and especially 1998′: ‘With only 3 months left in the year, there is no realistic way for 2014 to set a record in the satellite data.’ the alarmists will [...]
More than a century has passed since radiation and nuclear energy were discovered and the image of those energy sources has undergone much evolution with the passing of several cultural waves, each of which left its mark on the public's perception and attitude to nuclear power, writes Jeremy Gordon.
Testing of a new high-performance water decontamination system has started at the Fukushima Daiichi plant. When in full operation, the new system should increase water treatment capacity while significantly reducing the volume of waste generated.
Mining is expected to begin at Brazil's Engenho uranium deposit next year, according to front-end fuel cycle company Indústrias Nucleares do Brasil. A licence application for the mine is currently before the national regulator.
Despite contingency in life’s history, the similarity of evolutionarily convergent traits may represent predictable solutions to common conditions. However, the extent to which overall gene expression levels (transcriptomes) underlying convergent traits are themselves convergent remains largely unexplored. Here, we show strong statistical support for convergent evolutionary origins and massively parallel...
Antrodia cinnamomea, a polyporus mushroom of Taiwan, has long been used as a remedy for cancer, hypertension, and hangover, with an annual market of over $100 million (US) in Taiwan. We obtained a 32.15-Mb genome draft containing 9,254 genes. Genome ontology enrichment and pathway analyses shed light on sexual development...
