There’s a buzz around sparkling wine at the moment. Sparkling wine sales account for 11% of global wine sales and this market is growing by 4.5% annually. And it’s something that Canada has a talent for, with its cool climate wine regions. Of late there has been the beginnings of something special here in Canada. [...]
NASA predicts that the Arctic Ocean will be basically ice-free during the summers about 30 years from now. That's good news for prospective vacation-home developers up that way (truly a niche market), and for the rest of us, the good news is that increasingly good pinot noir is coming out of the...
Because a trip here is never complete without bulalo. Planning another food crawl in Tagaytay with your barkada? Day or night, a trip to this city is always a popular choice amongst Manileños for its cool climate, fun attractions, roster of amazing restaurants, and not to mention, it’s only an hour or two drive away from […]

Sinkane's Ahmed Gallab talks to Noisey about his new album, and making music for the current political climate: "If we don't have hope we're just gonna wallow in our own filth."
A new study finds that the six ocean hot spots that teem with the biggest mix of species are also among those getting hit hardest by global warming and industrial … Click to Continue »
(American Association for the Advancement of Science) A new study aimed at identifying areas of highest conservation priority in the world's oceans found six 'hot spots of marine biodiversity' that are severely impacted by climate change and fishing pressures.
Statistical analysis has revealed a simple rule for the occurrence of warm periods during the Quaternary, whereas on much longer timescales geological data have confirmed that the Solar System is chaotic. See Article p.427& Letter p...
Variations in the Earth’s orbit and spin vector are a primary control on insolation and climate; their recognition in the geological record has revolutionized our understanding of palaeoclimate dynamics, and has catalysed improvements in the accuracy and precision of the geological timescale.

(University of Washington) A new, two-part project led by the UW's Kristin Laidre aims to explore the interacting effects of climate change and subsistence hunting on polar bears, while also illuminating the cultural value of the species to indigenous peoples and the role they play in conservation.
Anyone blessed to live in an area with heavy snowfalls and winter weather knows the dangers that come along with the climate. A camera captured two extremely lucky men narrowly avoiding a huge chunk of ice that fell onto their vehicle as they were exiting. Show More Summary
There's a simmering debate between South Dakota legislators, teachers and parents about how schools should present science
(University College London) A simple rule can accurately predict when Earth's climate warms out of an ice age, according to new research led by UCL.
By Rebecca J. Romsdahl, University of North Dakota President Donald Trump has the environmental community understandably concerned. He and members of his Cabinet have questioned the established science of climate change, and his choice...Show More Summary
Two fringe British climate science deniers are heading to Maryland to see Donald Trump and his tea party pals this week, taking their Brexit-inflected anti-science agenda with them. Trump’s golden elevator buddy and UKIP MEP, Nigel Farage,...Show More Summary
The Proterozoic Eon (2500–542 Ma) appears to have been a warm period bookended by glaciations, despite a 5%–18% reduction in solar output compared to modern during this interval. Radiative-convective climate models suggest that glaciation could have been avoided if p CO 2 were 30–300 x preindustrial atmospheric levels (PIAL, 280 ppmv). Show More Summary
Modern-day periodic climate pattern variations related to solar activity are well known. High-resolution records such as varves, ice cores, and tree-ring sequences are commonly used for reconstructing climatic variations in the younger geological history. Show More Summary
South Dakota lawmakers have rejected a bill that would have allowed science teachers to discuss strengths and weaknesses of evolutionary and climate change theories. The House Education Committee Wednesday defeated … Click to Contin...
A South Dakota bill that would have weakened the teaching of evolution and climate change in classrooms has been defeated.
In our modern era and its social climate, one writer stands out, and that writer’s name is Margaret Atwood. Of her many works, one stands out tallest of all as the work we need in our modern times, relevant to the debates we find ourselves locked in daily and the future we wish to avoid. That work, of course, is Angel Catbird Volume 2: To Castle Catula. Continue reading…
