New in the Journal Nature is a detailed 10,000 yr history of California climate and this shows us the clear path to end today's terrible drought, here's what to know how it all comes about. http://russgeorge.net/2016/09/16/warmer-oceans-lead-to-prolonged-california-drought/
California drought have lasted for centuries according to climate history going back 10,000 years, bring back the rain with OPR ocean pasture restoration

A new mega-report on Ocean Warming is jam packed with nearly 500 pages of incredible information, sadly it misses some vital points, a summary with missing bits is presented here. I agree with the 86 authors final and most important point, we know what to do and it is time to get on with it, join me! ttp://russgeorge.net/2016/09/06/ocean-warming-for-and-by-the-politically-correct/
Ocean warming mega-report makes it clear the most damaging impact of humanities CO2 has been taking place in the oceans and therein also lies the best cure.

Whales are starving in the Pacific Northwest as the worst salmon runs in history prove the collapse of ocean pastures into clear blue deserts. We can and must restore ocean pastures to bring back the fish, whales, seabirds, sea-lions and more. Read more at http://russgeorge.net/2016/08/07/starving-great-blue-whales-fleeing-blue-deserts/ http://pugetsoundblogs.com/waterways/2016/08/24/one-orca-is-missing-and-presumed-dead-another-reported-as-super-gaunt/
I have some bleak news to share about our Southern Resident killer whales, which normally frequent Puget Sound at this time of year. J-14, a 42-year-old female named Samish, has gone missing and is presumed dead, while J-28, a 23-year-old orca mom named Polaris, may living out her final days.

Under pressure to perform, Silicon Valley champions are taking tiny hits of LSD before heading to work. Are they risking their health or optimising it?

Satellite ocean observatories in orbit have allowed us to see and study our vast oceans with abilities we and they desperately need. Watch wonderful videos from two of the brightest of those stars in this post.Those artificial stars have shown us key stepping stones that have led me to developing technology that is ready today to restore, regenerate, and revive ocean pasture plankton in the course of just a few years. Best of all we will do this at so little cost, mere millions each year, that arguing about this better, faster, cheaper solution to humanities CO2 excesses and collapse of world fisheries will no longer be worth arguing about. Join me. http://russgeorge.net/2016/07/26/epic-satellite-earth-video/
The EPIC satellite camera began sending videos of the earth from a million miles away, a year long time-lapse will help us diagnose Earth's ocean health

The car-size Curiosity rover has now entered safe mode four times since touching down inside Mars' 96-mile-wide (154 kilometers) Gale Crater in August 2012, recovering fully every time. The other three safe-mode events all occurred in 2013.

Lots of members on here but not a lot of activity. Is anyone around to talk about Science Communication as a field?

Dear Bryan we have to consider that the science matter is not so easy and lili bit not atractive for everyone , then it.s i think abviouse the hearer and listener of this issuse be more than talking of this .

I am caught in a vortex of dying marine life, I should try to swim free of it, but everyday something newly compelling keeps me in the vortex. Whales are starving to death everywhere, every day! This is senseless tragedy as we have the means to save them and all of ocean life by restoring their ocean pastures to historic health and abundance. This vital work has begun, don't simply wipe your crying eyes, do something, join me. http://russgeorge.net/2016/07/17/humpback-whales-driven-ashore-starvation/ http://mauinow.com/2016/08/26/video-emaciated-humpback-whale-makes-premature-appearance-tailed-by-tiger-shark/

As a further part of our series on history of biodiversity informatics, Dr. Javier Otegui will present an overview of the history of visualizations in the field. Javier is self-described as "Biólogo. Programador.
Data Scientist. Análisis de datos." ... biologist, programmer, data scientist, data analyst. This talk should be a fascinating overview of a key dimension of this field.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by A. Townsend Peterson. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

New twist on a report in Journal Nature proves CO2 insufficient alone to account for climate change in prehistoric 'Great Warming' the progenitor for today's "Global Warming.' CO2 must be acted upon by a force multiplier to account for prehistoric and present day warming and climate change. That force multiplier is our greatest ally and the greatest force of Nature on this blue planet, the ocean pasture plankton. Work is underway to restore and regenerate ocean pastures to save our blue planet - join me. http://russgeorge.net/2016/08/19/prehistoric-great-warming-caused-by-loss-of-plankton-cooling/
Great Warming 55 million years ago resulted from force multiplier effect of phytoplankton of the seas, our great ally in the war on climate change

Carnegie Mellon students learn how to talk about their research in three minutes or less.
Public speaking is enough to make anyone sweat. Now imagine condensing months of intensive research into a three-minute presentation and delivering it to a room full of your peers. This summer, 100 Carnegie Mellon University undergraduate students did just that.

360 million years ago it was the Devonian Age, aka ‘the greenhouse age’ and the ‘age of fish’ suffered a great dying. It was the time that plants evolved and grew to cover the land in the first global greening that caused the oceans to suffer a terrible drought of dust – almost all large ocean life became extinct. http://russgeorge.net/2016/07/19/devonian-mass-extinction-version-2/
It's said history repeats, we'd better hope not! 360 million years ago the Devonian Age, the "greenhouse age," ended in mass extinction when ocean lost dust
