Not every kind of science skepticism is the same. For example, skepticism about climate change is linked to political ideology, whereas skepticism about vaccinations consistently correlates with religious beliefs. In contrast, skepticism about genetically modified foods is not fuelled by religious or political ideology. These are some of the major findings of a new research study among North Americans.

Climate Change Tripled Chances For Hurricane Harvey's Record-Setting Rainfall

Added: 13.12.2017 17:56 | 2 views | 0 comments

Scientists issued a new report on Wednesday that explained how global warming was behind a portion of the record rainfall from Hurricane Harvey in Texas earlier this year, according to The Associated Press. While man-made climate change didn't trigger Harvey, the new studies found that a warmer, wetter world made it at least three times more likely that lingering storm flooded Houston, the fourth most populous U.S. city. Researchers also found that global warming also contributed aspects to two other destructive hurricanes this year, Irma and Maria. The findings were discussed at the American Geophysical Union meeting in New Orleans. The studies concerning Harvey used a combination of new...

UVB radiation influences behavior of sticklebacks

Fish cannot see ultraviolet B rays but still change their behavior when they grow up under increased UVB intensity. According to studies by biologists, on three-spined sticklebacks (Gasterosteus aculeatus) increased UVB leads to a smaller body size and more risk-seeking behavior when faced with predators. Climate change is likely to increase UVB intensity, possibly with consequences for ecosystems and fish farming.

Hurricane Harvey's historic deluge in Texas showed clear signs of human-caused climate change, with rainfall at least 15 percent heavier and the likelihood of such a calamity tripled, according to two independent studies published Wednesday. The new findings are part of a surge of research suggesting...
