Scientists say that a large, now extinct, frog called Beelzebufo that lived about 68 million years ago in Madagascar would have been capable of eating small dinosaurs. The conclusion comes from a study of the bite force of South American horned frogs.

In a paper published Wednesday in the journal Science Advances, geophysicist Daniel Rothman illustrates how current rates of carbon emissions increases could trigger a sixth mass extinction by the year 2100.
Thirst: Our brains tell us when to stop drinking
Scientists map 10 sites where a special sugar known as O-GlcNAc is added to the protein OCT4, one of the core Yamanaka factors critical for pluripotency of stem cells. O-GlcNAylation of OCT 4 ultimately regulates transcriptional activity at variety of promoters.

Across five experiments, new paper shows that dehumanization—the act of perceiving victims as not completely human—increases instrumental (where victims are harmed to achieve instrumental goals), but not moral (harm is perceived as morally righteous) violence.

347 Hidden-Fat Wait i thought agricultural had more of an effect on climate change. ya know cow shit n stuff
85 hjwoolwine well isn't that basically who everyone already blames for climate change?
544 newgraves From what I've read in the study They account for an increase since 1880 or back to 1854 but Data was not quality before 1880. The bay Journal "pins" it to them. The study shows and upward trend even with fossil fuel producer/consumers removed. I would like to see a study for this upward trend with variables like FFP's removed. What accounts for the increase in sea level? I know The climate would change as long as earth has poles and atmosphere but I do believe the bay journal and your title are slightly misleading. It would be more accurate to say they contributed , pin's leave people to think they are solely responsible. Fascinating study none the less.
28 PietPandarol Does anyone have an idea how reliable results from a ''simple climate model'' are? I feel like such a model could not give results reflective of our real complex climate within +-2%.

109 yes_its_him And here I was thinking the damage was done when those fuels were burned, not when they are supplied. If these companies didn't supply the energy needed to run the economy, other companies would have to. It's like saying farmers make people fat. If you look at the article, most of the contribution in the last 30 years (and a big part of the contribution before that) is from state-run enterprises like Saudi Aramco, Gazprom (Russia), and the Iranian and Mexican state oil enterprises. Those are four of the five biggest.
21 Endymion82 While I wholeheartedly believe humans are aggravating Earth's climate change, this "study" reads more like a witch hunt. Every one of us not walking, paddling, or pedaling to work are equally guilty of pollution by carbon fuel.
33 isotack Despite the impression given by its name and the image the way in which the media portrays it, the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) is not a professional scientific organization; in fact, for a $25.00 donation, you can also become a “concerned scientist.” Though founded in 1969 by faculty, including some scientists, and students at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, Massachusetts, UCS’ mission from the beginning has never been the pursuit of knowledge through scientific discovery. It has instead pursued left-wing advocacy on technology, environmental, and energy issues—regardless of what the scientific data have shown.
