24th July - Today's News: Kepler Discovers Krypton?





Residents blame beavers for flash flood in Alyth - because some debris allegedly showed signs of having been chewed by them ....   Well, it's always someone else's fault (even when it's no-ones). 


14 dead, more than 6,000 hospitalised in Japan heat wave last week, with all-time record high temperatures in some places.



And new dna evidence that mammoths killed by abrupt climate change - and it was sudden warming that was the problem.

A good piece by my friend John Mason on the importance of good climate communications: a recent Arctic example - reminding us again that we should not believe what we read in the media; always check the original source!

Dire climate warning raises questions, not answers


And 'Earth 2.0' found by Nasa Kepler telescope - and with greater gravity, any humanoid alien coming here would find themselves faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound ....  Don't tell Lex Luthor!
