Recent Amazonian droughts have drawn attention to the vulnerability of tropical forests to climate perturbations. Satellite and in situ observations have shown an increase in fire occurrence during drought years and tree mortality following severe droughts,
The new, third form of magnetism has been dubbed quantum spin liquid (QSL) and it behaves very differently indeed.Within a sparkling, solid crystal that took scientists ten months to create, magnetic "moments" spin and fluctuate constantly, changing their orientation like molecules sliding across one another in a liquid.
November was the 333rd straight month with average global temperatures above the 20th century average, according to NOAA.
The month of November continued an unbroken streak of warmer-than-average temperatures that dates all the way back to 1985 — with global average surface temperatures ranking as the fifth-warmest such month on record, according to figures released Monday by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)
What's more scary than facing an increase in flesh eating fungi, may be our own failure to give a crap.
We are part of a slowly enfolding tragedy in which the end of the world as we know it may be getting closer and closer. It won’t happen on any particular day that we can pinpoint and there won’t be a giant explosion or a big flood that will wipe everything away. There will be many floods and fires over many years. One species, one crop dying off after another.
HSBC was able to track Eliot Spitzer's 3 deposits to a holding account for an escort service. But they couldn't track $60 trillion in suspicious activity transfers from drug cartels and al-Qaeda that benefited them? Could it be because Spitzer was investigating the banks? Cenk Uygur breaks down the financial hypocrisy. its called evil banking, lies lies lies
After weeks of waiting, filmakers witness 7.4 cubic km of ice crashing off the Ilulissat Glacier in Greenland
the largest iceberg calving ever filmed, as featured in his movie, Chasing Ice. After weeks of waiting, the filmakers witnessed 7.4 cubic km of ice crashing off the Ilulissat glacier in Greenland. Chasing Ice, released in the UK on Friday, follows Balog's mission to document Arctic ice being melted by climate change.
breakthrough 3-dimensional solar cell technology to maximize the conversion of sunlight into electricity, today announced the successful fabrication of an initial prototype of its 3D solar cell using commercially available equipment from Panasonic. The company’s recently developed low cost fabrication process was applied successfully for the precise creation of 3D light trapping and light converting nanostructures on a silicon wafer.
Findings from US science agency Noaa suggest widespread and irreversible changes because of a warming climate...In Greenland, virtually the entire ice sheet – 97% – sustained some degree of thawing during a period of a few days in July, including on some of the highest peaks. But greedy fools like Shell still want to drill in the Arctic. Greed makes fools of people, corporations and governments.
GMO giants DuPont have contracted dozens of retired law enforcement officers to begin patrolling farms in the US next year to spot any potential intellectual property theft. DuPont competitors Monsanto have been known to relentlessly sue small-time farmers who have been caught abusing their own patented GMO products, but the latest maneuver is being considered by some a form of intimidation. Another example of predatory capitalism, abuse of ethics.
Substantial deployment of offshore wind by 2030 would boost growth and create 70,000 more jobs than gas...Large-scale investment in offshore wind would generate more wealth for the economy and create more jobs than relying on gas-fired power plants.
The world's most authoritative voice on climate science has consistently understated the rate and intensity of climate change and the danger those impacts represent, say a growing number of studies.

Everything you need to know about 18 years of UN climate conferences in one chart.
In my opinion, everything you really need to know about the effectiveness of the United Nations' multi-decade efforts to stop climate change can be seen in my chart below. It shows the annual increase in CO2 in the atmosphere along with the annual UN Conference of Parties (COP) climate meetings for each year.
For archaeologists, the discovery is relevant evidence of practices that were not recorded in the old Sonora cultural groups: cranial deformation (frontal occipital) was applied to 13 individuals, and modification by the wear of the side of teeth to give them a “V”.
Meeting 2-degree warming target requires immediate action By Summit Voice SUMMIT COUNTY — Delaying meaningful action on climate change is tempting, but will likely prove to be very costly in the lo...
You would need to shut down a coal power plant each week for ten years if you still wanted to reach the two-degree Celsius target,” said IIASA energy program leader Keywan Riahi, who also worked on the study.
Monsanto has been put under huge pressure in Europe after a new scientific study was released in Germany last week showing its glyphosate based herbicide Roundup damages beneficial bacteria.
Monsanto has been put under huge pressure in Europe after a new scientific study was released in Germany last week showing its glyphosate based herbicide Roundup damages beneficial bacteria. As we have been saying for years and as is repressed in corporate MSM.
Renewable energy could fully power a large electric grid 99.9 percent of the time by 2030 at costs comparable to today's electricity expenses, according to new research.

The largest living organisms on the planet, the big, old trees that harbor and sustain countless birds and other wildlife, are dying. A report by three of the world's leading ecologists in today's issue of the journal Science warns of an alarming increase in deathrates among trees 100-300 years old in many of the world's forests, woodlands, savannahs, farming areas and even in cities.
The world's growing appetite for cheap palm oil is destroying rain forests and amplifying climate change...Moreover, the denuding of this land through logging and burning releases large quantities of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide.
The world is now firmly on course for the worst-case scenario in terms of climate change, with average global temperatures rising by up to 6C by the end of the century, leading scientists said yesterday. And this article is from 2009, 3 years later prediction is 60% worse. Sixth extinction in the making..
Research by Global Carbon Project says emissions growth placing world on path to warm between 4 and 6C..."I am worried that the risks of dangerous climate change are too high on our current emissions trajectory. We need a radical plan," said co-author Corinne Le Quéré, director of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research in Britain and professor at the University of East Anglia
