“Academics have done an excellent job in understanding and communicating climate science, but the same cannot be said in relation to reducing emissions,” said Anderson. “Here we have collectively denied the necessary scale of mitigation, running scared of calling for fundamental changes to both our energy system and the lifestyles of high-energy users. Our paper brings this failure into sharp focus.”#climatechange #climatebreakdown #politics
Orientation patterns of more than 960 ancient pyramids, sites, and temples, randomly spread around the world, correlates with the temperature changes of the last series of glaciation cycles.
The orientation of a building is purely mathematical because orientation is dimensionless, i.e., not physical. While the size, weight, or chemical composition of a structure might change, its orientation is, by definition, independent of material properties.
Many astronomical, religious, and even political buildings, like the pyramids of Giza, the Yerkes Observatory, the White House, the Taj Mahal, Angkor Wat, and the Vatican, are cardinally oriented. Their architects oriented them to our current cardinal system, and that means to our existing geographic pole.
Ориентация более 960 древних пирамид, стоянок и храмов, случайно разбросанных по всему миру, коррелируют с температурными изменениями последних серий циклов оледенения.#animatedgif #archeology #catastrophism #climate #climatechange #foundation #northpole #orientation #past #pole #revision #time #weather
Ориентация здания является чисто математической, потому что ориентация безразмерна, т.е. не физическая. В то время как размер, вес или химический состав структуры могут изменяться, ее ориентация, по определению, не зависит от свойств материала.
Многие астрономические, религиозные и даже политические здания, такие как пирамиды Гизы, Обсерватория Еркес, Белый дом, Тадж-Махал, Ангкор-Ват и Ватикан, имеют кардинальную ориентацию. Их архитекторы ориентировали их на нашу нынешнюю кардинальную систему, а это значит на наш существующий географический полюс.
After three months adrift on a ship, scientists with the MOSAiC mission returned with crucial information about the rapidly warming far north.#Arctic #science #climate #climatechange #ocean #icebreaker
Apart from Trump’s incompetence, what needs to be done globally so that we might both prevent another pandemic and what must we do to be better prepared in the future?#Chomsky #Truthout #COVID #COVID-19 #CDC #neoliberalism #elections #protests #pandemic #ConstitutionalCrisis #climatechange
I don’t feel that “incompetence” is quite the right word. He’s quite competent in pursuing his primary goals: enriching the very wealthy, enhancing corporate power and profit, keeping his base in line while he stabs them in the back, and concentrating power in his hands by dismantling the executive branch, and so intimidating congressional Republicans that they timidly accept almost anything. I didn’t hear a peep from them when Trump fired the scientist in charge of vaccine development for daring to question one of the quack cures he is promoting. There is dead silence from these ranks as he carries out his purge of inspector generals, who impose some controls on the swamp he has created in Washington, also insulting one of the most respected Republican senators, 86-year-old Chuck Grassley, who devoted his long career to establishing this system.
It is an impressive achievement.
May 2020 was the hottest May on record, reported the Copernicus Climate Change Service on June 5.#Arctic #Russia #climate #climatechange #wildfires #Siberia #nature #science
Their data shows that globally, last month was 0.63 C warmer than the average May from 1981-2010.
Even in Europe, where May 2020 was generally colder than average, temperatures were still posted as
