Scientists Have Reduced the Forecast of Sea Level Rise Seven Times Due To Melting of the Antarctic (slashdot)

The destruction of the Antarctic ice sheet may not lead to such a catastrophic rise in the level of the oceans, as previously thought. In a new study, the authors calculated that instead of growing by a meter or more by 2100, a growth of 14-15 cm is likely, writes N + 1. At the same time, the melting of the ice of Greenland and Antarctica is not fully taken into account in modern climate models, as it will lead to even more destabilization of the regional climate. Both studies on this are publis...

La Serena, Its Giant Lighthouse and the Pacific Ocean

I’m glad I took a chance on La Serena—it paid off. You never know, with coastal cities. Sometimes, the beach locals rave about is small and dirty, sometimes you end up in a tiny, overpriced town along with hordes of tourists, sometimes port cities are run down and dodgy. But La Serena is lovely. I didn’t have a map, so after dropping off my backpack in the spare bedroom, I headed straight to what looked like the main avenue, Francisco de Aguirre. There were two signs: “Plaza de Armas,” straight,...

NOAA says 2018 was 4th warmest year on record, in an undeniable global warming trend

2018 was the fourth warmest year ever recorded on planet Earth, NOAA reported today. “Earth’s long-term warming trend continued in 2018 as persistent warmth across large swaths of land and ocean resulted in the globe’s fourth hottest year in NOAA’s 139-year climate record,” NOAA said. 2018 ranks just behind 2016 (the absolute warmest), 2015 (second warmest) and 2017 (third warmest). “In separate analyses of global temperatures, scientists from NASA, the United Kingdom Met Office and the Worl...

The Grind Line: Red Wings 1st Round Must-Have

What’s The Grind Line? Apart from the once-famous line of Kris Draper, Kirk Maltby, and either Joe Kocur or Darren McCarty, The Grind Line is also The Hockey Writers’ weekly column about the Detroit Red Wings. Rachel Anderson and Tony Wolak are the muckers who makeup THW’s forechecking unit and sound off on Red Wings topics. This week, we’ve also added guest contributor, .

Modern Weather Forecasts Are Stunningly Accurate

An anonymous reader quotes a report from The Atlantic: Meteorologists have never gotten a shiny magazine cover or a brooding Aaron Sorkin film, and the weather-research hub of Norman, Oklahoma, is rarely mentioned in the same breath as Palo Alto. But over the past few decades, scientists have gotten significantly -- even staggeringly -- better at predicting the weather. How much better? "A modern five-day forecast is as accurate as a one-day forecast was in 1980," says a new paper, published las...

Coolest lighthouses in the world

Lighthouses were once an integral part of any coastal seafaring culture. Their purpose wasn’t to look pretty but to give ships a point of reference in dark or bad weather. Their operators were akin to air traffic controllers, responsible for marking dangerous reefs, rocks, and coastlines, so ships could reach their destinations safely. Now, due to the advent of modern technology, lighthouse keepers have been largely replaced by electronic navigational systems; the lighthouses themselves, howe...

Skellig Michael visitor regulations

Ireland’s Skellig Michael has become one of the country’s most famous attractions, but it might soon be more difficult for tourists to visit. The towering rock island in the Atlantic Ocean, home to an early medieval monastic settlement and one of the most important sites for breeding seabirds in Ireland, is a UNESCO World Heritage site, as well as a Statutory Nature Reserve, a Special Protection Area, and a proposed Natural Heritage Area. But it’s likely the island being one of the filming ...

Best roadside lookouts in the US

Road trips are about a great many things. Cool playlists of the best song about every state. Excuses to eat more fast food in a week than you have since 2014. Gas station bathrooms. But they’re also about breaking up the monotony of the open road with a rest at a scenic lookout over something you’ve never seen before. It could be a mountain range, sprawling desert, or sweeping view of a modern city, but there’s something about scenic viewpoints that make us want to take a few minutes and appr...

Dining at all-inclusive resorts

When I was 14 , the food at Club Med was the greatest thing I’d ever seen. Instead of the plates of carefully placed organic spinach salad and tabbouleh I was used to at home, I found endless bowls of spaghetti tossed in beef-filled tomato sauce. I had whole pizzas I could just take. Trays of cookies. A guy who’d cut me all the prime rib I wanted. Seconds? Try ninths. My sister and I would compete to see who could eat more, piling each plate a little higher than the last. If I hadn’t been 14, ...

Time to Speak Up: The Achilles Heel of Industry Corporate Governance Structures | By Thomas Mielke

We are living in politically interesting times; what happens across the globe in the various Houses of Parliament and the Houses of Representatives has obvious and direct consequences on the economies and us "little people." Avoiding any political discussion, what we witnessed in 2017 and 2018 on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean, for example, can be described as a political farce - marred with false truths, accusations and superficial and unchallenged "debate." The word debate is within q...

United just banned 'emotional support animals' on long flights — and science is on the airline's side

United just barred emotional-support pets from flights longer than eight hours. Delta made a similar move last month. Animals have been peeing, defecating, or mauling passengers onboard flights, and airlines are starting to crack down. Unlike service dogs, "emotional support animals" are an unregulated group. There's little scientific evidence about what they really do for people. Emotional support peacocks. Emotional support snakes. Emotional support hamsters. People have brought all sorts ...
