Take Your Masks Off: That’s What THE Science Says – William M. Briggs. If you’re a surgeon and risk getting blood shot up your nose, or snot shot down into the open body, wear a mask.

Take Your Masks Off: That’s What THE Science Says – William M. Briggs

If you’re a painter, working with insulation and the like, wear a mask. Wear a mask if you have an active illness you suspect might be coronadoom. That’s polite. Wear a mask if you are fat, old, diabetic, sick, or are otherwise susceptible, and are venturing to an area which might contain people who are actively sick with the doom. Of course, if they’re going to arrest or fine you, wear a mask when you’re sure you can’t get away without it, or can’t afford the fine or jail time.

Evidence for extreme export of Arctic sea ice leading the abrupt onset of the Little Ice Age. Abstract Arctic sea ice affects climate on seasonal to decadal time scales, and models suggest that sea ice is essential for longer anomalies such as the Little Ice Age.

Evidence for extreme export of Arctic sea ice leading the abrupt onset of the Little Ice Age

However, empirical evidence is fragmentary. Here, we reconstruct sea ice exported from the Arctic Ocean over the past 1400 years, using a spatial network of proxy records. We find robust evidence for extreme export of sea ice commencing abruptly around 1300 CE and terminating in the late 1300s. Covid-19: Do many people have pre-existing immunity? It seemed a truth universally acknowledged that the human population had no pre-existing immunity to SARS-CoV-2, but is that actually the case?

Covid-19: Do many people have pre-existing immunity?

Peter Doshi explores the emerging research on immunological responses Even in local areas that have experienced some of the greatest rises in excess deaths during the covid-19 pandemic, serological surveys since the peak indicate that at most only around a fifth of people have antibodies to SARS-CoV-2: 23% in New York, 18% in London, 11% in Madrid.123 Among the general population the numbers are substantially lower, with many national surveys reporting in single digits.

With public health responses around the world predicated on the assumption that the virus entered the human population with no pre-existing immunity before the pandemic,4 serosurvey data are leading many to conclude that the virus has, as Mike Ryan, WHO’s head of emergencies, put it, “a long way to burn.” Not so novel coronavirus?

The 0.3% “Consensus”—Guest Post by Christopher Monckton of Brenchley – William M. Briggs

A major peer-reviewed paper by four senior researchers has exposed grave errors in an earlier paper in a new and unknown journal that had claimed a 97.1% scientific consensus that Man had caused at least half the 0.7 Co global warming since 1950. A tweet in President Obama’s name had assumed that the earlier, flawed paper, by John Cook and others, showed 97% endorsement of the notion that climate change is dangerous: Ninety-seven percent of scientists agree: #climate change is real, man-made and dangerous.

Top 7 Times Science Has Proven the Bible. Unborn babies MAY feel pain before the 24-week abortion limit, scientists say  Unborn babies may be able to feel pain before reaching 24 weeks, say scientists – meaning they could suffer as they are being aborted.

Unborn babies MAY feel pain before the 24-week abortion limit, scientists say 

Until now, the consensus of medical opinion has been that foetuses cannot feel pain before 24 weeks' gestation, after which abortion is illegal in Britain except in special cases. But two medical researchers, including a 'pro-choice' British pain expert who used to think there was no chance foetuses could feel pain that early, say recent studies strongly suggest the assumption is incorrect.

Quantum Theory and Common Sense - Tim Maudlin

This situation presents itself as a conflict between the scientific account of the world and “common sense”, a conflict that scientists sometimes gleefully portray as the defeat of common sense.

A 2011 confernce held at Cornell University presented a series of academic papers that focused on viewing biological systems in terms of informational questions. The authors drew parallels between numerical searches and biological systems. By applying conclusions about searches to biological information, conclusions can be drawn about how the capabilities of biological systems to produce practical results. The proceedings were published in Biological Information: New Perspectives, Marks, et. al., eds., (London: World Scientific, 2013).
