Clinton will win the nomination: 
A fairly simple model based on patterns of ethnicity among Democratic Party voters by states did a good job of predicting the outcome of Super Tuesday. Now, with those primaries and caucuses finished, the model is further refined and accurately retrodicts the process so far. Clinton will probably c...

A week or so ago, I got a couple of emails and tweets about a blog post on Medium.com, an internet thing of which I had never heard. Apparently Medium.com is a big giant blog that anybody can go and blog their big giant thoughts on: like tumblr, but more bloggy. Anyway, some dude by…

According to sources, like this one, President Obama is about to nix the Keystone XL deal. One of those “hastily called” press conference is set for just before noon Eastern. Sorry about your stock values and stuff, TransCanada. Thank you President Obama. Now, please pardon those arrested over #KeystoneXL in front of the White House.…

I’m not going to say anything about this research because I’ve not read the paper, but it looks important. If someone out there writes something up I’ll put a link here. Here’s the deal. Climate sensitivity is, very oversimplified, how much the surface of the planet heats up as we add CO2 and other greenhouse…

See what I did there? As you know, the UN WHO International Agency for Research on Cancer has listed Red Meat as Group 2A (probably carcinogenic to humans) and processed meat at Group 1 (causes cancer). And everyone is upset. The most common reaction to these listings is to criticize WHO. The least common reaction…

A recent study that is getting a lot of press suggests that the massive ice sheets of Antarctica are on average growing rather than shrinking, and thus, not contributing to sea level rise. (The authors of the study warn that this will reverse in the near future with global warming.) However, there is reason to…

The current polling as shown on the Huffpo Pollster, using only “likely voters” and “non partisan polls” shows that Trump and Carson are neck and neck and have been close for a week. Most of the other candidates are so low it is impossible to imagine any of them rising to a level of significance.…

This just in: Biofuels produced from switchgrass and post-harvest corn waste could significantly reduce the emissions that contribute to climate change, according to an analysis by EWG and University of California biofuels experts. EWG’s analysis found that the life cycle carbon intensity of cellulosic ethanol from switchgrass was 47 percent lower than that of gasoline.…

Ted Cruz said that PP engages in horrific activities every day. Says they have video. Someone should put together a cancer and heart surgery compilation movie to show the horrific-ness of standard non-reproductive lifesaving medicine.

Introduction
I write about evolution, other areas of biology, climate change, archaeology, and related topics.  I blog at Scienceblogs, 10,000 Birds, and a few other places.  I wrote a novella about the search for an elusive and strange primate in Africa, called Sungudogo (available on Amazon and elsewhere as an eBook).  



Bragging rights
Yes, it is true, I am the author of Sungudogo. If you’ve not read it, click the link below to find out what you are missing!
