U-Haul trucks — geological billboards

Here’s the side of our U-Haul truck from our Colorado to Missouri move last month: Like many U-Haul trucks, this one had a geological theme depicted on its side: Did you know… Strange flora, previously unknown to science, were [...]

Fox News: volcanic coal kills off dinosaurs before they even evolved

Twitter can be cruel sometimes. Without it, I never would have come across (via user @DoubleBeam) this aneurysm-inducing travesty on the Fox News website. I've italicised sentences of particular 'interest' in the first three paragraphs. Cataclysm [...]

Corals and Carbon Dioxide

Wry Heat [2010-01-04 18:45:36]   recommend this post  (165 visits)
One of the global warming scare stories we hear is that increased carbon dioxide emissions cause ocean acidification and rising temperatures that contribute to coral bleaching or other harm to corals. I dealt with ocean acidification in a previous [...]

Reporting on a Revolution Has Been Renamed Rapid Uplift

Reporting on a Revolution [2010-01-04 08:32:00]   recommend this post  (163 visits)
I got me a new blog name this new year. In a civil ceremony Reporting on a Revolution has been rechristened Rapid Uplift. I think the new name has a restless dynamic geologyey feel to it. It is more in tune with the broad theme of my blog of a [...]

Happy New Year, Merry Squidmas, and all that jazz. I've been woefully neglectful of this blog over the past ten days, and I apologize for it. Between the holidays, the layoff, and my Quest for Reemployment, things have been understandably slow. I'm [...]

Here is a sample page from my current project. A nice variety of colourful and not-so-colourful mammals, birds and reptiles. What do they have in common? Well, they are all unique to, or almost so, a single island or archipelago.The seven animals at [...]

The Best and Worst Jobs for 2010 have been posted. Science areas do pretty well (again), although mathematician dropped from its lofty perch of #1 to #6. Biologist, Meteorologist, Astronomer, Physicist, Anthropologist, and Archaeologist all crack [...]

Mary Anning, an Amazing Fossil Hunter

We don’t usually give much thought to who discovered a fossil. Museums rarely include much more information than species name and the state or country where the remains were found. The exception, in several museums in England at least, is fossils [...]
