One-Quarter Of West Antarctic Ice Is Currently Unstable Due To Changing Climate

In the last 25 years, warming oceans and changing climatic conditions have caused ice throughout West Antarctica to thin, triggering a “dynamical imbalance” across portions of the continent. Though the majority of the ice sheet has remained stable, a study published in Geophysical Research Letters suggests that as much as 24 percent of West Antarctica’s glaciers are impacted. Scientists poured over 25 years of satellite measurements – an estimated 800 million figures – and compared them against simulations of snowfall between 1992 and 2017. Surface height change was compared to simulated changes in snowfall – the greater the discrepancy, the greater the imbalance. “This is an important demonstration of how satellite missions can help us to understand how our planet is …

Affirming precedence is an important legal principle. If its ignored, which other supreme court decisions could be overturned next?

Study finds CBD effective in treating heroin addiction

Now Ocean Plastics Could Be Killing Oxygen-Making Bacteria

This planet has a problem with plastic. Not just the big masses of it accumulating in the Pacific, but with the tiny bits that are blowing into pristine mountaintop habitats. The flecks showing up in a range of sea creatures. The specks materializing even in human feces. Now scientists have exposed a potential new consequence of the plastic menace: The toxins the material leaches into seawater inhibit the growth and photosynthetic efficiency of the bacteria Prochlorococcus, which is responsible for producing an estimated 20 percent of the oxygen we breathe. That means Prochlorococcus is also responsible for 20 percent of carbon capture on this planet (one molecule of carbon goes in, one molecule of oxygen goes out), theoretically spelling trouble …

Alabama, surprisingly, refuses to air big gay rat wedding.

UPDATE: Last week, the world learned that Mr. Ratburn, the shady, big-hearted teacher from “Arthur” was gay. And the world’s collective response? “Uh, I didn’t even know ‘Arthur’ was still a thing.” You know what we call that? Progress! Because it’s [jubilant swear words bleeped out] awesome that there’s more representation on TV and that people are cool with it (although, it’s sometimes tiring that you have to celebrate that the high bar of acceptance is “people aren’t freaking out about it!”)  and that the 58 moms who make up “One Million Mom” aren’t out here crying and screeching about the sanctity of traditional marriage.
