Giant Sun Spot Turns Toward Earth – More Large Flares Possible (VIDEO)

Active Region (AR) 1302 is slowly coming into position where it directly faces the Earth. The region contains a “behemoth” sunspot — several times larger than the Earth — named sunspot 1302.

The sunspot has already been the source of two ‘X-class’ solar flares (‘X’ signifying the most extreme known); the first, measuring an X1.4, on September 22, and the second, an X1.9, coming just three days later on Sept. 24. Are more X-class flares on the way, and on their way towards Earth?

Science Under Attack [VIDEOS]

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FklwzRihv6Y BBC had created a pretty great feature recently, Science Under Attack. “Nobel Prize winner Sir Paul Nurse examines why science appears to be under attack, and why public trust in key scientific theories has been eroded,” the YouTube page for the first video above says. Sir Paul Nurse, head of the Royal Society, a

Improved Measurement of Solar Output Will Help Understand Climate Change

In determining whether humans are the sole cause for the warming currently taking place in our atmosphere, accurate data is needed for how much energy the sun is putting into that same atmosphere, and according to a new study published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, scientists have made a big step towards accurate determining

Good News for Scorpios – Earth's Wobble Now Makes You a Libra

Sometimes old knowledge makes for “new” news, even viral news. Case in point:sky-watchers have known for more than two millennia that the Earth has a irregular wobble in its orbit — what’s known as precession — which over time makes its orientation to the constellations, and to our sun, change. This precessional change means that,

Here Comes the Sun

NASA reported last year that “if anything,” the Sun contributed “a very slight overall cooling in the past 25 years.” Despite that many man-made global warming deniers will try tell you that it is because of sunspots that we are seeing so much global warming. Another major 2007 study on the Sun found that “over

'Devastating Climate Shock' Needed to Spur Climate Change Policy

In his alarm-ringing NY Times op-ed on Climate Change, professor Homer-Dixon* draws a comparison with the 2008 financial “meltdown” which finally led to new financial regulations, even though warnings of a housing bubble (and an emerging recession) were being made prior to the crisis. He advocates societies designing a contingency plan (‘Plan Z’ ) to deal with the immediate after-effects of one or more climate change disasters.

Scientists Say 'Paint Roofs White to Tackle Global Warming'

[social_buttons] Scientists at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California have suggested a plan to drastically reduce global warming, by painting the world white.  If implemented successfully, it would be the equivalent of taking the world’s 600 million cars off the road for 18 years. Hashem Akbari and Surabi Meno, along with Art Rosenfeld, California
