  1. Yes it was, he called me a climate change supporter ….Due to Global warming winters on average become shorter and less severe, the oceancurrent increases this. This is semantics, you can also say that winters grow warmer. In the North there are area's with a dry climate, plants and trees can grow pretty big because they 'hibernate' and while they hibernate it's generally very cold which inhibits water vaporization. So when trees and plants 'wakke up' from hibernation, all the water starts to melt which enables a strong new growth. Global warming messes up this system so I asked how plans will adapt to this. Many(not all) area's will have a longer growing season with less water.
  2. They say a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. Yet a bird often stress shits in your hand...I prefer them in the bush...so my hand remains clean.
  3. Hundreds of thousands of native fish in Australia’s Darling River have died following a major outbreak of blue–green algae and some severe weather. Two mass die-offs have been reported near Menindee in western New South Wales — the first was late last year, and the second last week. Outbreaks of blue–green algae (cyanobacteria), which thrive in warm water, are not uncommon during droughts. The algae did not directly cause the mass die-off; rapid cooling and intense rainfall might have disrupted the bloom and depleted the amount of dissolved oxygen in the water, killing the fish, said Anthony Townsend, a senior fisheries manager at the New South Wales Department of Primary Industries, in a statement. But low water levels in the river have compounded the die-offs, which have greatly affected native species such as bony herring (Nematalosa erebi), golden and silver perch (Macquaria ambigua and Bidyanus bidyanus, respectively) and the vulnerable Murray cod (Maccullochella peelii) . “Unfortunately, the main causes of this distressing event are the lack of water flowing into the northern rivers, and the impact of 100 years of over-allocation of precious water resources throughout the entire basin,” says the Murray–Darling Basin Authority, a statutory agency that oversees the basin through which the river flows.https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-019-00146-5
  4. It's a 'fact' that winters on average become shorter and less severe.(Sensei even acknowledged this by stating winters in uk are warmer) Most glaciers all over the world are melting. .. So acknowledging the severity of global warming gives bullets to climate change deniers? You misinterpret things because it's me...I'm a malcontent primate.

  7. Scientists in Japan now have permission to inject 'reprogrammed' stem cells into people with spinal-cord injuries. An upcoming trial will mark the first time that induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells have been used to treat spinal-cord injuries, after a committee at Japan’s health ministry approved the study on 18 February. IPS cells are created by inducing cells from body tissue to revert to an embryonic-like state, from which they can develop into other cell types. Hideyuki Okano, a stem-cell scientist at Keio University in Tokyo, will coax donor iPS cells into becoming neural precursor cells, which can develop into neurons and glial cells. His team will then inject two million of the precursor cells per patient into the site of spinal injury around 2–4 weeks after the injury occurs. . Okano has demonstrated that the procedure can regenerate neurons in monkeys with injured spinal cords and increase their mobility1. Okano’s team will carry out the experimental therapy in four people, monitoring them to ensure it is safe and effective before deciding whether to start a larger clinical trial with more participants. The first patient is expected to be treated in the second half of this year. IPS cells have been used in a handful of other clinical applications, including to treat age-related macular degeneration in 2014 and 2017, and Parkinson’s disease in 2018. A clinical trial in the United States is also testing a treatment for spinal-cord injuries using embryonic stem cells. The study has so far only led to minor improvements in a few patients, and has yet to demonstrate that it works in a controlled trial.https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-019-00656-2
  8. The DNA of life on Earth naturally stores its information in just four key chemicals — guanine, cytosine, adenine and thymine, commonly referred to as G, C, A and T, respectively. Now scientists have doubled this number of life’s building blocks, creating for the first time a synthetic, eight-letter genetic language that seems to store and transcribe information just like natural DNA. "Synthetic DNA seems to behave like the natural variety, suggesting that chemicals beyond nature’s four familiar bases could support life on Earth" https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-019-00650-8

  11. If all goes well, an Israeli lander scheduled to launch tomorrow will become the first privately funded craft to land on the Moon. The trip will be short and sweet — a two-day study of magnetism in rocks. But it will pioneer the type of public-private partnership that seems set to kick off a new era of lunar exploration. https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-019-00652-6
  12. HUP is about phenomena with momentum/position. That's not necessary about QM, Physics or science...Most of what we observe has momentum/position. Isn't entropic uncertainty a principle of a wave? I've read some papers that said how HUP is too basic, entropic uncertainty basically upgrades HUP. My view point is that HUP and observer effect is not necessary about physics or science I backed it up and, explained it. Another viewpoint is that HUP, indeterminism in QM, bell's theorem implies what we say about Nature.Physics doesn't say what/how Nature is, it implies what people say about Nature. Many people do think physics shows how Nature is, also the ones that write/wrote articles about it. You said HUP is a property of Nature...this is wrong, but you deny it? Of course they are not the same, I did not say they are. HUP is not a quantum phenomen.https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1262781/ When you observe a donkey there can be an observer effect. And you can't measure its position and momentum precise at the same time....when the donkey is on the move.
  13. Very true.And parents are generally those people. To answer the OP: "why we still believe in a god?" => 'because we listen to our parents. '
  14. Most people probably believe in God because their parents/society....indoctrination. Sharing a believe system can increase groupccohesion so in many societies the believe in a God can be a/the norm to be part of or accepted in the group.
  15. This is wrong, you say many things like that. Physics implies what people say about Nature via exp. evidence. You should not make assumptions regarding a model showing a property of Nature. The observer effect is the theory that simply observing a situation or phenomenon necessarily changes that phenomenon. In many science fields people observe phenomena via measuring devices....so then it's rather a measurement effect.. you can discuss if a measurement is really an observer effect since you still have to observe/interpret the measurements. Those phenomna which are observed can be anything...including a donkey.
  16. This is the best joke I've read in a while.
  17. That's true but people say things which are wrong, regarding the observer effect. So it's imo necessary to explain it. The observer effect affect the particles on the screen (it transforms energy). Do you deny this? Why do you think an entangled particle is measured? They measure superposition, not entanglement.
  18. You have imo young earth creationists and bellow them, you have the flatearthers.(or the flearthers)
  19. I don't know if this is an environmental crisis. But the loss of vegetation/trees causes soil erosion which can cause Desertification.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historic_desertification
