Our recent paper in Nature Climate Change <http://www.nature.com/nclimate/journal/vaop/ncurrent/full/nclimate2656.html> was turned into an awesome video by Minute Physics. #scicomm  at its best.

Tomorrow, Nature is publishing a comment I wrote on how we incorporate climate change into conservation planning. Check out the link below (via paywall). Email me if you need a reprint. Happy to discuss further too.

Over the years, I have entertained many friends with stories & videos of duck penises. This research is solely due to the brilliance of Patricia Brennan, who has been unfairly singled out by Fox News and conservatives as representative of why NSF should be de-funded (putting me and every other scientist out of business). Let's all celebrate the wonder of duck penises, and support funding basic science.

Many of you may have heard yesterday about the huge cuts to the Field Museum's budget, much of which is going to mean cutting research. This is not a positive change. Please consider signing this petition.

So, this is outrageous. Yes, there's a big difference between what legislators are considering and what becomes law, but this is purely anti-science and it's 100% the wrong way to prepare for future climate change impacts.

Sorry Toshi! I'm late to the game here. I also heard that it actually was passed into law recently. Ugh.

I didn't think it would happen, but someone writing for "Slate" actually noticed all the accurate bird things in "A Birder's Guide to Everything" and gave me and Kenn Kauffman "top billing" for our work. #superproud 
When Top Gun was released in 1986, the U.S. Navy saw a 500 percent increase in pilot recruits. The Karate Kid inspired a dojo boom in the late 1980s that reached even my little hamlet of Falmouth, Maine. I lasted two weeks as a no-belt before I got tired of...

A beautifully written Op-Ed illustrating just now 'natural' or 'unnatural' dichotomous sexuality is.

This is the best commentary yet following Friday's tragedy. It expresses many of my strongest-felt concerns. It also confirms things I have witnessed myself, such as friends jumping to conclusions on social media, saying things they can't take back. It also reminds me that I wanted to post about the movie, "The Central Park Five," which is currently in theaters around the country. It is grim, but an incredibly important piece of cinema about tragedy, mass media, group-think, and real repercussions these things have on people's lives. Social media has only served to strengthen the voice yet dampen the penalty of the false accuser.

If you ever have to deal with climate deniers, the NYT has a great graphic that shows the importance of long-term trends
