Wall Street Journal op-ed debates neutrinos and climate change
Experts in both physics and climate change quickly took issue with the columnist’s attempt to discredit climate change because of other discoveries.
The Open_Sailing project is an international community of scientists, engineers, architects and many others who are trying to develop an International Ocean Station. The open-source project aims to create something similar to the International Space Station on the sea, a place where people can study the ocean and learn to live sustainably in a marine environment. The project began as an apocalyptic design response unit, but has evolved into a voluntary community of amateurs, inventors and scientists who study everything from aquaculture to desalination. The creators of this ocean station are working to develop a truly innovative “city” design that will become compact during storms and sail when winds are favorable. Learn more.
Though I’m not into carbon stuff, I really like this design…

Climate conspiracy hoax revealed!
As brave GOP presidential hopefuls sound the alarm on the global warming hoax, an exclusive MNN investigation has uncovered the smoking gun: irrefutable proof, backed by flawless logic, that climate scientists are only in it for the fat climate science research cash!
(It’s a really good read.)
Whether it’s rising sea levels, desertification, melting glaciers or ocean acidification, climate change is rapidly altering the landscape of our planet. We may be one of the last generations to see some of the Earth’s most cherished places.
Is the CIA’s climate work on the chopping block?
Intelligence analysts have long kept tabs on variables like changing weather patterns as a predictor of regional instability — but it’s safe to say that any climate program will be scrutinized by the GOP caucus.
