Climate Scientists Admit To Major Math Error After Global Warming Study Debunked

  • Climate Scientists Admit To Major Math Error After Global Warming Study Debunked
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    The co-author of a widely-cited global warming study has owned up to a major math error uncovered six days after its Oct. 31 publication by an independent scientist. 

    The study used a new method of measuring the ocean’s absorption of heat, and concluded – through incorrect math – that 60% more heat had been absorbed than previously thought. 

    The report was covered or referenced by MSM outlets worldwide, including the Washington Post, New York Times, BBC, Reuters and others. Shortly after the article was published, however, independent UK-based researcher Nicholas Lewis published a comprehensive blog post, claiming he had found a “major problem” with the research.

    “So far as I can see, their method vastly underestimates the uncertainty,” Lewis said in an interview Tuesday, “as well as biasing up significantly, nearly 30 percent, the central estimate.”

    Lewis added that he tends “to read a large number of papers, and, having a mathematics as well as a physics background, I tend to look at them quite carefully, and see if they make sense. And where they don’t make sense — with this one, it’s fairly obvious it didn’t make sense — I look into them more deeply.”

    Lewis has argued in past studies and commentaries that climate scientists are predicting too much warming because of their reliance on computer simulations, and that current data from the planet itself suggests global warming will be less severe than feared. –Washington Post

    “When we were confronted with his insight it became immediately clear there was an issue there,” said Ralph Keeling, a scientist with the Scripps Institute of Oceanography who co-authored the paper with Princeton University scientist and lead author, Laure Resplandy. “We’re grateful to have it be pointed out quickly so that we could correct it quickly.”

    Keeling said they have since redone the calculations, finding the ocean is still likely warmer than the estimate used by the IPCC. However, that increase in heat has a larger range of probability than initially thought — between 10 percent and 70 percent, as other studies have already found.

    Our error margins are too big now to really weigh in on the precise amount of warming that’s going on in the ocean,” Keeling said. “We really muffed the error margins.” –San Diego Union-Tribune 

    “I accept responsibility for what happened because it’s my role to make sure that those kind of details got conveyed,” Keeling told the Washington Post on Tuesday.

A Bright New Comet Inbound to the Inner Solar System

  • nemesis maturity Published on Nov 13, 2018
    AMATEUR ASTRONOMERS FIND A BRIGHT NEW COMET: There’s a new comet in the morning sky. Discovered just last week by three amateur astronomers–one in Arizona and two in Japan–Comet Machholz-Fujikawa-Iwamoto (C/2018 V1) has quadrupled in brightness over the past few days. “It is now glowing like a fuzzy 8th magnitude star in the constellation Virgo,” reports Michael Jäger of Turmkogel, Austria, who photographed it on Nov. 11th. “The discovery of a comet by amateur astronomers is a rare event nowadays because robotic Near-Earth-Object search programs usually catch them first,” he says. “My special congratulations to the three discoverers.” Comet Machholz-Fujikawa-Iwamoto appears to be a first-time visitor to the inner solar system. It is plunging toward the sun on nearly-parabolic orbit that will take it just inside the orbit of Mercury. Closest approach to the sun (0.38 AU) is on Dec. 3-4; closest approach to Earth (0.67 AU) is Nov. 27th. Read more here:

Something is Affecting the Entire Solar System

  • nemesis maturity Published on Nov 12, 2018
    The solar system is passing through an interstellar cloud that physics says should not exist. “Using data from Voyager, we have discovered a strong magnetic field just outside the solar system,” explains lead author Merav Opher, a NASA Heliophysics Guest Investigator from George Mason University. Astronomers call the cloud we’re running into now the Local Interstellar Cloud or “Local Fluff” for short. It’s about 30 light years across and as hot as the surface of the sun. It contains a wispy mixture of hydrogen and helium atoms at a temperature of 6000 Celsius. For comparison a hundred degrees Celsius boils water!!!

    The existential mystery of the Fluff has to do with its surroundings. About 10 million years ago, a cluster of supernovas exploded nearby, creating a giant bubble of million-degree gas. The Fluff is completely surrounded by this high-pressure supernova exhaust and should be crushed or dispersed by it. The fact that the Fluff is strongly magnetized means that other clouds in the galactic neighborhood could be, too. Eventually, the solar system will run into some of them, and their strong magnetic fields could compress the heliosphere even more than it is compressed now. Additional compression could allow more cosmic rays to reach the inner solar system and the ability of astronauts to travel safely through space. On the other hand, astronauts wouldn’t have to travel so far because interstellar space would be closer than ever. These events would play out on time scales of tens to hundreds of thousands of years, which is how long it takes for the solar system to move from one cloud to the next. Read more here:

Major Math Error Puts Widely-Cited Global Warming Study On Ice

  • Major Math Error Puts Widely-Cited Global Warming Study On Ice
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    An widely-circulated study which concluded that global warming is far worse than previously thought has been called into question by a math error, reports the Daily Caller‘s Michael Bastasch. 

    Princeton scientist Laure Resplandy and researchers at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography concluded in October that the Earth’s oceans have retained 60% more heat than previously thought over the last 25 years, suggesting global warming was much worse than previously believed.

    The report was covered or referenced by MSM outlets worldwide, including the Washington Post, New York Times, BBC, Reuters and others. 

    The Washington Post, for example, reported: “The higher-than-expected amount of heat in the oceans means more heat is being retained within Earth’s climate system each year, rather than escaping into space. In essence, more heat in the oceans signals that global warming is more advanced than scientists thought.”

    The New York Times at least hedged their reporting, claiming that the estimates, “if proven accurate, could be another indication that the global warming of the past few decades has exceeded conservative estimates and has been more closely in line with scientists’ worst-case scenarios.

    Unfortunately for the Princeton-Scripps team, it appears that their report has been proven inaccurate.

    Independent scientist Nic Lewis found the study had “apparently serious (but surely inadvertent) errors in the underlying calculations.” Lewis’ findings were quickly corroborated by another researcher. –Daily Caller 

    “Just a few hours of analysis and calculations, based only on published information, was sufficient to uncover apparently serious (but surely inadvertent) errors in the underlying calculations,” wrote Lewis in a blog post published on climate scientist Judith Curry’s Climate Etc. website.

    After correcting the math error, Lewis found that the paper’s rate of oceanic warming “is about average compared with the other estimates they showed, and below the average for 1993–2016.”

    Lewis’s conclusion was replicated and supported by University of Colorado professor, Roger Pike, Jr., who tweeted his work.

    Lewis found the study’s authors, led by Princeton University scientist Laure Resplandy, erred in calculating the linear trend of estimated ocean warming between 1991 and 2016. Lewis has also criticized climate model predictions, which generally over-predict warming.

    Resplandy and her colleagues estimated ocean heat by measuring the volume of carbon dioxide and oxygen in the atmosphere. The results: the oceans took up 60 percent more heat than previously thought. The study only sent alarm bells ringing, especially in the wake of the United Nations’ latest climate assessment. –Daily Caller

Meteor Shower Alert: It’s Going to Rain Down Shooting Stars & Fireballs All Month Long

  • nemesis maturity Published on Nov 2, 2018
    Meteor Shower WATCH: There are four meteor showers this month. Leonids, Southern/Northern Taurids & November Orionids Set to Light Up the Night Skies. The South Taurids should produce their greatest number of meteors shortly after midnight on November 5. The meteoroid streams that feed the South (and North) Taurids are very spread out and diffuse. The Taurids are well known for having a high percentage of fireballs, or exceptionally bright meteors. https://earthsky.org/tonight/south-ta…

    Late night November 11 until dawn November 12, 2016, the North Taurids. The slow bright Taurids are visible before midnight for a week centered on November 12. The Leonids produced meteor storms of hundreds to thousands of meteors per hour at the peak each year from 1998 to 2002. An amazing night in 1966, the meteors were falling like rain. This year they’ll be visible at their regular rates, perhaps 15 per hour.

    The annual Leonids Meteor shower, derived from material left by repeated passages of periodic Comet 55P/Tempel-Tuttle, runs from November 5th to December 3rd. At the peak, before dawn on November 17, expect to see about 15 meteors per hour, many with persistent trains. A waxing gibbous moon will brighten the sky, but will set at around midnight, leaving a darker pre-dawn sky. https://www.space.com/16149-night-sky…

    https://earthsky.org/tonight/radiant-…

    The Orionids peak on November 28th. The radiant is near Orion’s head. The constellation Orion is familiar to most skywatchers. This stream is active from November 7 through December 17, with maximum activity occurring on November 29. Rates should be near 5 per hour as seen from mid-northern latitudes and 3 as seen from sites south of the equator. With an entry velocity of 43 km/sec., most activity from this radiant would be of medium speed.

Mars Could Have Enough Molecular Oxygen to Support Life

  • Mars Could Have Enough Molecular Oxygen to Support Life
    by , Los Angeles Times (TNS), via https://www.seattletimes.com/
    Modern-day Mars may be more hospitable to oxygen-breathing life than previously thought. A new study suggests that salty water at or near the surface of the red planet could contain enough dissolved O2 to support oxygen-breathing microbes, and even more complex organisms such as sponges.

    “Nobody thought of Mars as a place where aerobic respiration would work because there is so little oxygen in the atmosphere,” said Vlada Stamenkovic an Earth and planetary scientist at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory who led the work. “What we’re saying is it is possible that this planet that is so different from Earth could have given aerobic life a chance.”

    As part of the report, Stamenkovic and his co-authors also identified which regions of Mars are most likely to contain brines with the greatest amounts of dissolved oxygen. This could help NASA and other space agencies plan where to send landers on future missions, they said.

    The work was published Mondayin Nature Geoscience. On its surface, the planet Mars is not what you would consider a hospitable place for most Earthlings. Here on Earth, 21 percent of our atmosphere is made up of oxygen — thanks to the abundance of plants and other organisms that create oxygen as a byproduct of photosynthesis.

    The Martian atmosphere, on the other hand, is made up of just .145 percent oxygen, according to data collected by the Mars rovers. With no plants to make O2, the minuscule amount of oxygen on Mars is created when radiation from the sun interacts with CO2 in the planet’s atmosphere.

    In addition, Mars’ atmosphere is extremely thin — 160 times thinner than Earth’s atmosphere. In addition, the temperature at the surface frequently drops to minus 100, making it extremely difficult for liquid water to exist on the planet’s surface.

Oxygen Discovery ‘Completely Changes’ Potential for Life on Mars – Study

  • Oxygen Discovery ‘Completely Changes’ Potential for Life on Mars – Study
    by https://www.rt.com/
    Eyed as prime real estate, Mars currently occupies the mind of space innovation suitors. Billions is being spent in the race to get humans to the planet but can the barren landscape be tamed? A new oxygen study provides hope.

    SpaceX, Blue Origin and Boeing all have aspirations to put humans on the ground of the Red Planet. The US space agency NASA has a longstanding interest while Russia and even the United Arab Emirates each outlined their capabilities to get to, what data suggests is, a sparse, unsustainable landscape.

    However, a new study into the cold, desert world could provide new impetus for explorers given that it suggests deposits of briny water may contain enough oxygen to support microbial life.

    Published in the Nature journal, the study was led by researchers at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena. Using atmospheric models to test how oxygen might react in water underneath the Red Planet’s surface, the team found evidence to suggest that the life sustaining chemical element could be present to a degree higher than expected.

    “Even at the limits of the uncertainties, our findings suggest that there can be near-surface environments on Mars with sufficient O2 available for aerobic microbes to breathe,”
     the study states.

Nemesis: Our Solar System May Have Had Two Suns Astronomers Say

  • nemesis maturity Published on Oct 26, 2018
    According to experts, there is evidence which suggests that all stars in the universe are born in pairs. For decades, scientists have speculated that our sun has an ‘evil’ twin referred to as NEMESIS—a dwarf star responsible for hurling objects from the outer solar system towards our planet. In fact, NEMESIS may even have been resposnible for mass extinctions that have rocked Earth for millions of years. Astronomers use the term binary system to refer to two stars that are so close together that they orbit around a common center of mass. This is something quite frequent in the Universe, which has motivated some researchers to question if our Sun could ever be part of one of these systems. Now a team of researchers from the Universities of Harvard and Berkeley has conducted a study whose results suggest that all stars are born forming binary systems and that ours would not be an exception.

Bizarre New Star Formation Casts Doubt on How the Solar System Formed

  • nemesis maturity Published on Oct 23, 2018
    Everything we know about the formation of solar systems might be wrong, says University of Florida astronomy professor Jian Ge and his postdoc, Bo Ma. They’ve discovered the first “binary–binary” – two massive companions around one star in a close binary system, one so-called giant planet and one brown dwarf, or “failed star”

    The first, called MARVELS-7a, is 12 times the mass of Jupiter, while the second, MARVELS-7b, has 57 times the mass of Jupiter. Astronomers believe that planets in our solar system formed from a collapsed disk-like gaseous cloud, with our largest planet, Jupiter, buffered from smaller planets by the asteroid belt.

    In the new binary system, HD 87646, the two giant companions are close to the minimum mass for burning deuterium and hydrogen, meaning that they have accumulated far more dust and gas than what a typical collapsed disk-like gaseous cloud can provide. They were likely formed through another mechanism. The stability of the system despite such massive bodies in close proximity raises new questions about how protoplanetary disks form.
