EPA Was Not Always Confident Regulating CO2 Would Be A Legal Slam Dunk

Climate Depot - Fri, 02/12/2016 - 15:23
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is adamant its signature regulation to fight global warming is legally sound in the face of a major legal blow by the U.S. Supreme Court earlier this week, but the agency hasn’t always been so confident in its authority to force states to stop burning coal. Audio obtained by the [...]

Novel bacterial actin nanotubules [Biophysics and Computational Biology]

PNAS Early Edition Articles - Fri, 02/12/2016 - 15:18
Here we report the discovery of a bacterial DNA-segregating actin-like protein (BtParM) from Bacillus thuringiensis, which forms novel antiparallel, two-stranded, supercoiled, nonpolar helical filaments, as determined by electron microscopy. The BtParM filament features of supercoiling and forming antiparallel double-strands are unique within the actin fold superfamily, and entirely different to...

DNA breaks enrich near transcription start sites [Neuroscience]

PNAS Early Edition Articles - Fri, 02/12/2016 - 15:18
High-throughput, genome-wide translocation sequencing (HTGTS) studies of activated B cells have revealed that DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs) capable of translocating to defined bait DSBs are enriched around the transcription start sites (TSSs) of active genes. We used the HTGTS approach to investigate whether a similar phenomenon occurs in primary neural...

Analysis: It’s ‘game over’ for global warming activists after Supreme Court EPA ruling

Climate Depot - Fri, 02/12/2016 - 13:16
Environmentalists’ faint hope that they can get international action on climate change gets fainter by the day. This week the United States Supreme Court added to their despair by kiboshing President Obama’s pledge, at December’s climate talks in Paris, to lead the world on climate change. “This could be the proverbial string which causes Paris [...]

Arctic Sea Ice Trend May Have Turned The Corner As Ice Volume Picks Up Over Past 5 Years

Climate Depot - Fri, 02/12/2016 - 13:12
The Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI) here shows currently Arctic sea ice is at its highest level in years for this time of the year. Hat-tip: Kirye at Twitter. Sea ice extent in recent years (in million km2) for the northern hemisphere, as a function of date. In fact it appears it has reached its highest [...]

NASA Study Concludes ‘Global Warming’ Is Actually Slowing Sea Level Rise

Climate Depot - Fri, 02/12/2016 - 13:08
A new NASA study concludes global warming increases the amount of water stored underground which, in turn, slows the rate of sea level rise. At a time when scientists are worried about accelerating sea level rise, NASA scientist John Reager and his colleagues found an extra 3,200 gigatons of water was being stored by parched landscapes [...]

Oops: Obama administration repeatedly told UN EPA ‘climate regs’ were ‘legally bulletproof’

Climate Depot - Fri, 02/12/2016 - 13:07
The big climate news of the week is, of course, that the U.S. Supreme Court put a stay on the EPA’s Clean Power Plan until the Plan’s detractors have their day in court. Cato’s Ilya Shapiro summarized the situation succinctly: The Supreme Court’s stay of the Clean Power Plan is a welcome development. The regulations [...]

Climate Astrology: ‘Global Warming’ commands sea level rise Increases…& sea level rise slowdown: NASA discovers that ‘global warming’ is slowing and not increasing sea level rise

Climate Depot - Fri, 02/12/2016 - 08:33
One of the effects of climate change, also known as global warming, has said to have been the rise in sea levels. The idea is that as the Earth’s temperatures began to increase the Arctic and Antarctic ice caps would melt, causing the oceans to rise. Unless something was done, cities like Miami and New [...]
