It is puzzling why the recent 2017 publication in Nature, Global Warming And Recurrent Mass Bleaching Of Corals by Hughes et al. ignored the most critical factor affecting the 2016 severe bleaching along the northern Great Barrier Reef – the regional fall in sea level amplified by El Niño. Instead Hughes 2017 suggested the extensive bleaching was due to increased water temperatures induced by CO2 warming.

In contrast in Coral Mortality Induced by the 2015–2016 El-Niño in Indonesia: The Effect Of Rapid Sea Level Fall by Ampou 2017, Indonesian biologists had reportedthat a drop in sea level had bleached the upper 15 cm of the reefs before temperatures had reached NOAA’ Coral Reef Watch’s bleaching thresholds. As discussed by Ampou 2017, the…

Franz Josef glacier, which grew almost continuously in the 25 years to 2008 Franz Josef glacier, which grew almost continuously in the 25 years to 2008

Reader Phil Hutchings writes via email:

This article in Nature Communications caught my eye! 

This is a beauty. This week, Nature Communications published an explanation as to why (at least) 58 New Zealand glaciers grew in the twenty-five years to 2008.

The aberrant behaviour by these naughty glaciers was perfectly explicable though – it was caused by „regional cooling”.

Researchers from NZ’s National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research and Victoria University prepared, yes, a model of the Southern Alps. And yes, they found that in their model, lower air and adjacent ocean temperatures (during those 25 years) were correlated with the growing glaciers.

Fair enough.

But where is the support for this claim ?

„While this sequence of climate variability and its effect on New Zealand glaciers is unusual on a global scale, it remains consistent…

Pacientul coronarian cu terapie antiplachetară Duminică, Ian 1 2017 

Un material mai vechi. Merita revazut.

Geomarz's Weblog

Cea mai frecventă asociere : aspirina + clopidogrel

PCI = percutaneous intervention = angioplastie

Tipuri de PCI

  • – cu balonaș : restenozare în prima lună în proporție de 30-60%
  • -BMS-PCI

BMS  = bare metal stent

Restenozare în proporție de 10-30 % în primul an.

Fenomenul este legat de statusul imun al pacientului, calitațile metalului utilizat, coroziunea acestuia

  • – DES-PCI

DES = drug eluting stents

Stentul este impregnat cu agenți antiproliferativi pentru CE și celulele musculare.

Restenozare în proporție de 5-10% în primul an.

vladislav-golikovDuminică, 25 decembrie 2016. Sărbătoarea Crăciunului la români. M-am trezit cu noaptea-n cap, să dau o fugă până la Bucureşti. Am deschis televizorul, cât să mă îmbrac. Apoi am ieşit afară, să pornesc maşina, să se încălzească motorul înainte să plec la drum. Când am revenit în cameră, mi-a atras atenţia o ştire afişată pe ecran. Un avion militar rusesc s-a prăbuşit în Marea Neagră. Am mărit sonorul, dar n-am aflat mai multe. Doar că printre pasageri se aflau militari şi artişti. M-a întristat vestea, dar nu mi-a trecut prin cap cât de mare este nenorocirea. Am stins televizorul şi am plecat.

Singur în maşină, pe autostrada aproape pustie. Nici de această dată nu mi-a dat prin gând să ascult radioul, să aflu noutăţi. Am ascultat colindele lui Ştefan Hruşcă, doar era Crăciunul… La fel şi la întoarcere. Iar cei cu care m-am întâlnit în Bucureşti, nu ştiau nici ei…

Homogenization of Temperature Data By the Bureau of Meteorology Joi, Dec 22 2016 

Despre modelele climatice

Watts Up With That?

Guest essay by Brendan Godwin

Background

I worked for Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology – BOM for 2 years from 1973 to 1975. I was trained in weather observation and general meteorology. I spent 1 year observing Australia’s weather and 1 year observing the weather at Australia’s Antarctic station at Mawson.

As part of it’s Antarctic program, Australia drills ice cores at Law Dome near it’s Casey station. On our return journey in 1975 we repatriated a large number of ice cores for scientific analysis. The globe’s weather and climate records are stored in these ice cores for the past 1 million years approximately.

Australia’s Antarctic program went by the name of Australian National Antarctic Research Expedition or ANARE for short. This is now known as Australian Antarctic Division or AAD. Returned expeditions formed a club called the ANARE Club of which I have been a member since 1975. Members have…

Ancient climate change at #AGU16 – Atacama Desert may have harbored lakes, wetlands Sâmbătă, Dec 17 2016 

Despre Desertul Atacama

Watts Up With That?

From the paleoclimatology world, what caused such drastic climate change back then?

Marco Pfeiffer and his colleagues scan the arid Atacama Desert, where freshwater lakes and wetlands once provided refuge to South America's early settlers. CREDIT Marco Pfeiffer Marco Pfeiffer and his colleagues scan the arid Atacama Desert, where freshwater lakes and wetlands once provided refuge to South America’s early settlers. CREDIT Marco Pfeiffer

SAN FRANCISCO – The arid Atacama Desert, thought to be a barrier to early South American settlers, may have held lakes large enough to sustain small human populations, according to new research presented here today. The lakes’ presence challenges the current understanding of the paths early settlers took to explore and settle South America, according to the researchers.

Chile’s Atacama Desert spans roughly 1,000 kilometers (600 miles) along South America’s western coast. The desert is sandwiched between two mountain ranges, which prevent water from reaching its valleys and salt flats, making it the world’s driest location outside the poles.

Now, new research shows standing water may have existed in the heart of…

Grand Solar Minimum event va incepe in jurul anului 2032. Ca o fi mai devreme ca o fi mai tirziu, se va vedea.

De ce ne intereseaza activitatea solara? Pentru ca, dupa unii, ar fi cea care controleaza evolutia climatica de pe pamint. Un minimum de activitate solara s-ar lega de racire climatica. Maximum merge cu incalzire planetara.

Se va vedea. Eu nu voi mai avea cum sa vad. De asta imi pare rau ca oamenii nu sint mai longevivi.

The Bray (Hallstatt) Cycle Vineri, Noi 25 2016 

Fantastic

Watts Up With That?

Guest essay by Andy May and Javier

The evidence for a persistent irregular climate cycle with a period of 2400 ±200 years is strong. There is compelling evidence of a solar cycle of about the same length and phase; suggesting that the solar cycle might be causing the climate cycle. We will present a summary of the evidence, beginning with the original paleontological evidence, followed by the cosmogenic radionuclide (10Be or Beryllium-10 and 14C or Carbon-14) evidence. For more information, a bibliography of many papers discussing topics relevant to the Bray (Hallstatt) cycle can be found here. Only a small portion of the relevant papers are mentioned in this summary post.

In the November 16, 1968 issue of Nature, James R. Bray first proposed the idea of a 2600-year solar-driven climate cycle based primarily upon evidence of Holocene global glacier advances and retreats. We prefer…

‘Settled Science’ syndrome hits Astronomy and the Nobel Prize Sâmbătă, Oct 22 2016 

Universul este in plin proces de expansiune. Intrebarea este daca accelerata sau constanta.
Este dragut ca s-au luat doua rinduri de premii. Unii au demonstrat expansiunea accelerata. Dupa ei altii au demonstrat expansiunea CONSTANTA!!!!
Si oamenii de stiinta se mai inseala! 😇😇😇

Watts Up With That?

From the UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD:

The universe is expanding at an accelerating rate – or is it?

Five years ago, the Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to three astronomers for their discovery, in the late 1990s, that the universe is expanding at an accelerating pace.

Their conclusions were based on analysis of Type Ia supernovae – the spectacular thermonuclear explosion of dying stars – picked up by the Hubble space telescope and large ground-based telescopes. It led to the widespread acceptance of the idea that the universe is dominated by a mysterious substance named ‘dark energy’ that drives this accelerating expansion.

Now, a team of scientists led by Professor Subir Sarkar of Oxford University’s Department of Physics has cast doubt on this standard cosmological concept. Making use of a vastly increased data set – a catalogue of 740 Type…

Loi de 1905 sur la laïcité. Les musulmans ont-ils seulement pu un jour en bénéficier? Duminică, Aug 21 2016 

sarrazins


Depuis des années, la laïcité ne cesse d’être érigée en un rempart face à la montée du sentiment musulman en France. C’est en son nom que l’on dicte la marche à suivre aux professeurs de l’unicité divine et que l’on tente d’organiser le culte musulman national. En opposition totale avec son texte de 1905 de référence, la laïcité, usée aujourd’hui pour contrecarrer le moindre battement de cil mahométan, était à son origine éludé, en territoire musulman conquis, à des fins exactement similaires. Retour sur une contradiction française qui en dit long.

Laïcité inclusive ou exclusive, ouverte ou fermée, devenue morale et même foi dixit Vincent Peillon, ce terme n’avait pourtant un siècle plus tôt qu’une simple portée juridique. Accordant liberté à l’Etat dans le domaine du temporel, et liberté aux Églises dans le domaine du culte, il était ainsi hors de question que l’un dicte à l’autre une quelconque…

Ten dire polar bear predictions that have failed as global population hits 20-31k Vineri, Feb 26 2016 

Watts Up With That?

Guest essay by Dr. Susan Crockford

Grim predictions of the imminent demise of polar bears – their “harsh prophetic reality” as it’s been called – have been touted since at least 2001. But such depressing prophesies have so widely missed the mark they can now be said to have failed.

Rode and Regehr 2010_Chukchi_report2010_triplets redone PNG

While polar bears may be negatively affected by declines in sea ice sometime in the future, so far there is no convincing evidence that any unnatural harm has come to them. Indeed, global population size (described by officials as a “tentative guess“) appears to have grown slightly over this time, as the maximum estimated number was 28,370 in 1993 (Wiig and colleagues 1995; range 21,470-28,370) but rose to 31,000 in 2015 (Wiig and colleagues 2015, [pdf here] aka 2015 IUCN Red List assessment; range 20,000-31,000).

These ominous prophesies have been promoted primarily by Ian…

A little known ancient historical building that marks the winter solstice Duminică, Dec 27 2015 

Solstitiul de iarna si importanta lui …

Watts Up With That?

This year the solstice occurs on Tuesday December 22nd at 04:49 GMT, about 15 hours from the time of this posting. This thought provoking article highlights what the ancient people in what we now call Ireland knew 3200 years ago.

One Moment in Time: The Solstice Seen from Newgrange

Newgrange.jpgDeep inside the world’s oldest known building, every year, for only as much as 17 minutes, the sun – at the exact moment of the winter solstice – shines directly down a long corridor of stone and illuminates the inner chamber at Newgrange.

Newgrange was built 1,000 years before Stonehenge and also predates the pyramids by more than 500 years.

Lost and forgotten along with the civilization that built it, the site was been rediscovered in 1699. Excavation began in the late 1800s and continued in fits and starts, until it was undertaken in earnest in 1962. It was completed…

Green Pass Is the celebrity green pass about to be revoked?

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

Back in April this year, WUWT reported on an unusual green attack on blatant celebrity eco-hypocrisy. Now this new green terror has gone mainstream, with rising groundswell of criticism, of celebrities whose vocal support for green causes is contradicted by their openly high carbon lifestyles.

According to the Daily Mail;

Green campaigner Madonna uses her private jet for 120 mile journey from Birmingham to London

Driving would have taken almost three hours but a private jet took just over one.

So it was a no-brainer for Madonna, who chartered her own airline for a trip home from a Birmingham concert to London last Wednesday, according to new reports in The Sun newspaper.

The decision enraged environmental activists, as well as her loyal followers who accused the 57-year-old Unapologetic singer of being a ‘hypocrite’ for increasing her…

Watts Up With That?

Guest essay by Andy May

Holocene_Temperature_Variations_Rev[1]

The Holocene Thermal Maximum, also called the Holocene Thermal Optimum, occurred at different times in different parts of the world but generally between 10,000 BP and 4,000 BP.  I use BP to indicate years before 2000.   The world ocean was probably 0.7°C warmer than today 8,000 BP. This is remarkable because the ocean heat capacity is 1000 times larger than the atmosphere’s according to the IPCC and NOAA.  Simple high school physics is all that is required to verify this, the calculation is described here.  What this means is that if you heated the atmosphere to 1000°C and transferred all of that heat to the ocean, the ocean would only warm 1°C once the heat was well mixed. We can draw two conclusions from these facts. First, the world was much warmer 8,000 BP than today and the total heat stored in the…

The robust Pause resists a robust el Niño Still no global warming at all for 18 years 9 months Duminică, Dec 6 2015 

Watts Up With That?

By Christopher Monckton of Brenchley

The Christmas pantomime here in Paris is well int0 its two-week run. The Druids who had hoped that their gibbering incantations might begin to shorten the Pause during the United Necromancers’ pre-solstice prayer-group have been disappointed. Gaia has not heeded them. She continues to show no sign of the “fever” long promised by the Prophet Gore. The robust Pause continues to resist the gathering el Niño. It remains at last month’s record-setting 18 years 9 months (Fig. 1).

clip_image002

Figure 1. The least-squares linear-regression trend on the RSS satellite monthly global mean surface temperature anomaly dataset continues to show no global warming for 18 years 9 months since March 1997, though one-third of all anthropogenic forcings have occurred during the period of the Pause.

The modelers ought to be surprised by the persistence of the Pause. NOAA, with rare honesty, said in its 2008 State of the…

Jihadul sexual și cadavrul logicii progresiste Marți, Noi 17 2015 

Bogdan Calehari

Femeia a murit în timp ce era violată. Poliția, ajunsă într-un târziu în parcarea subterană a hotelului Sheraton din Stockholm, l-a surprins pe ucigaș, un somalez de 34 de ani, în timp ce acesta continua să violeze cadavrul. S-a întâmplat în urmă cu doi ani. Somalezul intrase clandestin în Suedia în 2007, iar în 2008 a fost trimis în judecată pentru trafic de droguri. Atunci, fiind prima infracțiune, a primit doar o amendă! Descurajat, cum era și logic, a mai comis apoi alte 39 de infracțiuni: furt, trafic de droguri, atacuri și violuri.

În Suedia, ca și în alte țări progresiste, logica este la mare preț. Așadar, logic, cu o lună înainte de a-și ucide victima la Sheraton, somalezul a violat, anal, o altă suedeză! Procurorul Daniel Jonsson a refuzat să ceară deportarea asasinului. Și asta pentru că în Suedia, procurorul este, neoficial, al doilea avocat al apărării, iar judecătorul……
