Arctic warming puts ringed seals in peril

Ringed seals spend most of the year hidden in icy Arctic waters, breathing through holes they create in the thick sea ice. But when seal pups are born each spring, they don’t have a blubber layer, which is their protection […]

A website about the U.S. electricity grid offers a mesmerizing way to pass the time productively

Global warming could devastate Mexican fisheries, study finds

In Mexico, the fishing industry provides jobs for more than 2 million people. But as ocean waters warm, that industry could suffer. “So this is a worrying trend,” says Laura Rodriguez of the Environmental Defense Fund’s oceans program in Latin […]

A problem with YouTube 
The American Geophysical Union (AGU) started to stream sessions at their annual meeting in San Francisco last December. This kind of participation over the Internet is a nice alternative since many scholars are unable to attend the AGU meetings due to distance, time constraints, time difference and cost.   I watched some of the talks, […]

Unbelievably, this is no April’s fool joke
Last week, a colleague shared a tweet with a link to a very unusual paper. I first thought it must be a joke, but then realised that since it was the last days in March when I read it, it could not be an April’s fool joke. It seems to be a serious paper. So […]

Further perspectives on pandemics and climate change
I have recently been asked whether the present corona pandemic will have any consequence on climate change. Gavin has already discussed the coronavirus and climate here on RealClimate, and I like to follow up on his post. Rather than emphasising analogies, I would highlight additional common denominators between the present world-wide Covid-19 pandemic and climate […]

Coronavirus and climate
As we collectively reel from the changes wrought by the current pandemic, people are being drawn by analogy to climate issues – but analogies can be tricky and often distort as much as they illuminate. For instance, in the Boston Globe, Jeff Jacoby’s commentary was not particularly insightful and misquoted Mike Mann pretty egregiously. Mike’s […]

Why not use a clever mathematical trick?
There is a clever mathematical trick for comparing different data sets, but it does not seem to be widely used. It is based on so-called empirical orthogonal functions (EOFs), which Edward Lorenz described in a Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) scientific report from 1956. The EOFs are similar to principal component analysis (PCA). The EOFs […]
