The Sun Flares Up

The sun has been particularly active of late. A massive solar storm erupted only yesterday, March 5, 2012, and was captured in a short NASA video. Gorgeous auroras will result later this month when the electrically charged solar particles hit the Earth’s upper atmosphere. Your GPS may not point in the proper direction as well.

"Do you believe in global warming?"

"Do you believe in global warming?" He asked me. He was a dentist for kids. He had perfect teeth. I was riding public transport with him. He'd seen me reading "The Weather Makers," a book about how man affects the climate. "I mean," he continued. "I know the world is warming. But do you think humans are causing it? Or do you think it's part of natural cycles? Couldn't this just be nature?" I paused to think. I don't know for sure, I said. I'm not a climate scientist. I don't ...

Truth can be Stranger than Fiction

It is often said that history is written by the victors. It might also be said that the survivors of disasters might provide some insights as well. If the huge earthquakes and tsunamis that recently happened near Sumatra and Japan had occurred before written records or technological methods were available, what would survivor stories have been? Their descriptive narratives would certainly have been different from descriptions today but that doesn’t invalidate the factual events they ...
