(PRINCIPIA SCIENTIFIC) – At first glance this simple question appears to be lifted from a first year, undergraduate class in meteorology, because everyone who has even a rudimentary understanding of the thermodynamics of the atmosphere knows that water vapor decreases the lapse rate (more…)

    03 Sept (ANH) – Instead of getting rid of the pesticides that are killing the bees, the ag industry wants to create a big new market for high-fructose corn syrup. (more…)


    13 Aug (INDEPENDENT SCIENCE NEWS) – Variations in individual “educational attainment” (essentially, whether students complete high school or college) cannot be attributed to inherited genetic differences. That is the finding of a new study reported (more…)


    26 Jul (AMERICAN THINKER) – Remember when scientists and other truth-seekers used to get all riled up about the way the Catholic Church treated Galileo? The outcry was not over the fact that Galileo was a “peer-reviewed” researcher, and therefore beyond question. (more…)


    24 Jul (Natural News) –  Some of the highest levels of ionizing radiation yet detected since the disaster first occurred were recently recorded at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power facility in Japan, according to shocking new reports. (more…)


    11 Jun (GAIA HEALTH) – Synthetic Biology and DNA Printing: What Are They? Can they really just print out DNA? Or is it hype? Is it a new Pandora’s box? The developers of this new technology claim that it’s nothing more than the next step of evolution—that genetic engineering is no different than what nature has always done.  (more…)


    5 Jun (THE SCIENTIST) – A Kickstarter project that promises donors Arabidopsis seeds transfected with firefly genes is causing a stir.  The Glowing Plant Project, which has raised more than $450,000 from nearly 8,000 backers on the crowd-funding website www.kickstarter.com, promises to send donors seeds,for laboratory workhorse Arabidopsis thanliana and roses, that are engineered to carry firefly genes that will cause the plants to emit a faint blue-green glow.

    29 May (INTELLIHUB) -As Intellihub noted more than a year ago, “The ocean currents head from Japan to the West Coast of the U.S.”  Of course, fish don’t necessarily stay still, either.  For example, the Telegraph notes that scientists tagged a bluefin tuna and found that it crossed between Japan and the West Coast three times in 600 days: (more…)


    Mar 22 (NoMoreFakeNews.com) – For the medical cartel, Autism and Alzheimer’s are big, big business.  Profits are soaring.  These two conditions are promoted as specific diseases.  That’s where all the trouble starts.  If you read the Alzheimer’s and Autism definitions, which are the criteria for diagnosis contained in the psychiatric Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM), you find there are no physical tests of any kind.  No blood tests, no saliva tests, no urine tests, no genetic tests, no brain scans. (more…)


     21 Mar (NATURAL NEWS) –  A pair of studies recently published in the journal Science raises fresh and dire warnings about the continued decline of crop-pollinating insects all over the world, and what this means for the future of the world’s food supply. Both studies highlight the fact that wild pollinators like bumblebees, butterflies, and beetles are basically disappearing, and that industrial agriculture, which includes genetically-modified organisms (GMOs), are a major factor causing this insect genocide.

    28 Feb – Following a heart attack, many people struggle to recover fully.  The huge amounts of pills these patients have to take do not seem to help.  The medication often has the opposite effect from the intended.  Patients experience a loss of vitality, a lack of drive and suffer mood swings.  Some never recover, while (more…)


    3 Feb (RETRACTION WATCH)Regular Retraction Watch readers may find the name Grant Steen familiar.  Steen has published a number of important papers on retractions, most recently in PNAS.  Recently, he approached Retraction Watch for help with what sounds like another project that is likely to increase our understanding of misconduct in science:  Steen wants to gather the st (more…)

Between 2002 and 2011, it issued around 460,000 research grants totaling almost US$200 billion.  The NIH has unquestionably propelled numerous medical advances and scientific breakthroughs, and its funding makes much of today’s scientific research possible.  (more…)


    2 Oct (NYTIMES) – Last year the journal Nature reported an alarming increase in the number of retractions of scientific papers — a tenfold rise in the previous decade, to more than 300 a year across the scientific literature.  Other studies have suggested that most of these retractions resulted from honest errors. But a deeper analysis of retractions, being published this week, challenges that comforting assumption. (more…)


    8 Sep (THE AUSTRALIAN) – Once upon a time, being peer-reviewed simply meant you had written something, usually a journal article, and some other people in your profession had read it and considered it fit for publication.   Not any more.  (more…)


    24 Jul – Biologist and researcher Christl Meyer has provided scientific evidence proving without doubt that the so called “HIV-virus”, which is claimed to be the cause of AIDS, does not exist.. A biologist by training, Meyer explains that the definitions of “AIDS” are sporadic, non-specific, and that the alleged syndrome is a cluster of OLD familiar diseases and not a disease of it’s own.

    Despite her acquittal, Casey Anthony may be the most hated woman in America.  Our skepticism of her story doesn’t stem from the lack of evidence, for there was clearly not enough evidence to convict.  The fact is that children die.  So why are some parents charged criminally, while others are not?  Why do we sympathize with some parents more than we do with others?

    19 APRIL (ARGENTINA) – The fact that politics, incompetence and corruption have replaced scientific integrity is nothing new.  Researchers like C.

    They died in their sleep one by one, thousands of miles from home. Their median age was 33. All but one — 116 of the 117 — were healthy men. Immigrants from southeast Asia, you could count the time most had spent on American soil in just months.
