@Tallbloke's Talkshop: Geolo­gists may have traced the source of last year’s unexpl­ained massive Earth shake

Epic. Why are ‘schools of dead fish appearing in the water?’ Last November, a huge seismic event that shook the planet left experts wondering about its possible source, says Science­Alert.

@Jo Nova: Climate skeptics, anti EU party surges from nowhere to power in Dutch Elections

The Forum for Democracy (FDV) Party only launched in 2016, but has rocketed to 12 seats in the Dutch provi­ncial elections which determine the make up of the Senate. The FDV campa­igned against “climate change hysteria” and against immigr­ation and for more direct democ­racy. The Financial Times calls them Eurosce­ptics.

Like Trump, and like Brexit, journa­lists did not see this coming.

@Master Resource: Andrew Dessler’s Climate Sensit­ivity Lecture: Some Observ­ations

“I left the Rice Unive­rsity climate talk apprec­iative that Andrew Dessler was polite in person (he gets nasty toward skeptics in his tweets). But I was hardly dissuaded from my prior concl­usion that this scientist is a deep ecologist engaging in half-​truths for a cause. That he is not above ‘lawye­ring’ to present a black-​and-​white case for climate alarmism.”
