    Data from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory offer clues about sun’s coronal irradiance
    July 17, 2017 by Bob Yirka

    Scientists have known for some time that the corona experiences solar cycles of approximately 11 years—solar flare activity grows and ebbs over the course of a single cycle. But until now, there has been no way to measure what happens over the course of a single cycle to explain the changes that occur.
    . . .
    Their findings demonstrate, the pair note, that monitoring sunspots is not an adequate means for predicting EUV irradiance—more measurements and study are required to better understand the factors at play.

    Western Hudson Bay: ‘there has been no change, on average, in the amount of time that most WHB polar bears spent on shore since 2003 and thus, the ice-free season in recent years has not been any worse for the bears than it was 14 years ago.’

    They don’t seem to be affected by the opinions of climate alarmists at all 😉

    We love scary stories. The reason why reveals a secret about America.

    Editor of the Fabius Maximus website Information & News, Science & Nature 17 July 2017

    Summary: A new chapter has begun in the climate wars. The reason why reveals secret things about America. Things which we must know if we are to steer America to a safe and prosperous future.

    Gamma-ray telescopes reveal a high-energy trap in our galaxy’s center
    July 18, 2017

    In March 2016, scientists with the H.E.S.S. Collaboration reported gamma-ray evidence of the extreme activity in the galactic center. The team found a diffuse glow of gamma rays reaching nearly 50 trillion electron volts (TeV). That’s some 50 times greater than the gamma-ray energies observed by Fermi’s Large Area Telescope (LAT). To put these numbers in perspective, the energy of visible light ranges from about 2 to 3 electron volts.

    Planet Nine hypothesis supported by new evidence
    Date: July 12, 2017

    Last year, the existence of an unknown planet in our Solar system was announced. However, this hypothesis was subsequently called into question as biases in the observational data were detected. Now astronomers have used a novel technique to analyze the orbits of the so-called extreme trans-Neptunian objects and, once again, they point out that there is something perturbing them: a planet located at a distance between 300 to 400 times the Earth-Sun separation.

    Re. Larsen C Antarctic ice break-up:

    ‘What is not disputed by scientists is that it will take many years to know what will happen to the remainder of Larsen C as it begins to adapt to its new shape, and as the iceberg gradually drifts away and breaks up. There will certainly be no imminent collapse, and unquestionably no direct effect on sea level because the iceberg is already afloat and displacing its own weight in seawater.’
    . . .
    ‘Even if the remaining part of Larsen C were to eventually collapse, many years into the future, the potential sea level rise is quite modest. Taking into account only the catchments of glaciers flowing into Larsen C, the total, even after decades, will probably be less than a centimetre.’

    Climate catastrophists need to look elsewhere for their cheap sensations.

    Do Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and the UK know what they have gotten into?
    Posted on July 12, 2017

    Therefore, now the US has changed its position, it would seem that, of G20 members, only Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and the UK regard climate change as a serious problem. Yet they are responsible for only 8% of global emissions. I suggest it is they, not the US, that are “completely isolated”.
