Litli fjarstri og slarknni jeppinn Opportunity hefur veri a aka um reikistjrnuna Mars undanfarin tv r. Hann hefur veri a sniglast umhverfis Viktoru gginn undanfarna mnui og fann rugga lei niur hann. Hann er n kominn niur gginn og er a rannsaka jarlgin ar (ea segir maur kannski a hann s a rannsaka marslgin?).

Myndin sem fylgir essari grein er samsett r miklum fjlda mynda sem jepplingurinn hefur sent til jarar. hmarks upplausn er tsni strfenglegt, sj risastru myndina sem er hr. (Muna eftir a enja myndina sem birtist t me v a smella hana).

Mars-jeppinn

Margur er knr hann s smr. a er trlegt a etta litla farartki skuli hafa veri feralagi um yfirbor Mars yfir tv r vi rannsknarstrf. Farartki heitir Opportunity.

Af einhverjum stum vekja mannlausar geimferir miklu minni athygli en mannaar, svo a rangur eirra s miklu meiri.

Um essar mundir hafa tveir jepplingar, Opportunity og Spirit, eki um vttur Mars rija r og sent frbrar myndir til jarar.

Explanation: Saturn never shows a crescent phase -- from Earth. But when viewed from beyond, the majestic giant planetcan show an unfamiliar diminutive sliver. This image of crescent Saturn in natural color was taken by the robotic Cassini spacecraft in May. The image captures Saturn's majestic ringsfrom the side of the ring plane opposite the Sun -- the unilluminated side -- another vista not visible from Earth. Pictured are many of Saturn's photogenic wonders, including the subtle colors of cloud bands, the complex shadows of the rings on the planet, the shadow of the planet on the rings, and the moons Mimas (2 o'clock), Janus (4 o'clock), and Pandora (8 o'clock). As Saturn moves towards equinoxin 2009, the ring shadows are becoming smaller and moving toward the equator. During equinox, the rings will be nearly invisible from Earth and project only an extremely thin shadow line onto the planet.

Global Warming Delusions

By DANIEL B. BOTKIN


Mr. Botkin, president of the Center for the Study of the Environment and professor emeritus in the Department of Ecology, Evolution, and Marine Biology at the University of California, Santa Barbara, is the author of "Discordant Harmonies: A New Ecology for the Twenty-First Century" (Replica Books, 2001).

Global warming doesn't matter except to the extent that it will affect life -- ours and that of all living things on Earth. And contrary to the latest news, the evidence that global warming will have serious effects on life is thin. Most evidence suggests the contrary.

Case in point: This year's United Nations report on climate change and other documents say that 20%-30% of plant and animal species will be threatened with extinction in this century due to global warming -- a truly terrifying thought. Yet, during the past 2.5 million years, a period that scientists now know experienced climatic changes as rapid and as warm as modern climatological models suggest will happen to us, almost none of the millions of species on Earth went extinct. The exceptions were about 20 species of large mammals (the famous megafauna of the last ice age -- saber-tooth tigers, hairy mammoths and the like), which went extinct about 10,000 to 5,000 years ago at the end of the last ice age, and many dominant trees and shrubs of northwestern Europe. But elsewhere, including North America, few plant species went extinct, and few mammals.

We're also warned that tropical diseases are going to spread, and that we can expect malaria and encephalitis epidemics. But scientific papers by Prof. Sarah Randolph of Oxford University show that temperature changes do not correlate well with changes in the distribution or frequency of these diseases; warming has not broadened their distribution and is highly unlikely to do so in the future, global warming or not.

The key point here is that living things respond to many factors in addition to temperature and rainfall. In most cases, however, climate-modeling-based forecasts look primarily at temperature alone, or temperature and precipitation only. You might ask, "Isn't this enough to forecast changes in the distribution of species?" Ask a mockingbird. The New York Times recently published an answer to a query about why mockingbirds were becoming common in Manhattan. The expert answer was: food -- an exotic plant species that mockingbirds like to eat had spread to New York City. It was this, not temperature or rainfall, the expert said, that caused the change in mockingbird geography.

You might think I must be one of those know-nothing naysayers who believes global warming is liberal plot. On the contrary, I am a biologist and ecologist who has worked on global warming, and been concerned about its effects, since 1968. I've developed the computer model of forest growth that has been used widely to forecast possible effects of global warming on life -- I've used the model for that purpose myself, and to forecast likely effects on specific endangered species.

I'm not a naysayer. I'm a scientist who believes in the scientific method and in what facts tell us. I have worked for 40 years to try to improve our environment and improve human life as well. I believe we can do this only from a basis in reality, and that is not what I see happening now. Instead, like fashions that took hold in the past and are eloquently analyzed in the classic 19th century book "Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds," the popular imagination today appears to have been captured by beliefs that have little scientific basis.

Some colleagues who share some of my doubts argue that the only way to get our society to change is to frighten people with the possibility of a catastrophe, and that therefore it is all right and even necessary for scientists to exaggerate. They tell me that my belief in open and honest assessment is nave. "Wolves deceive their prey, don't they?" one said to me recently. Therefore, biologically, he said, we are justified in exaggerating to get society to change.

The climate modelers who developed the computer programs that are being used to forecast climate change used to readily admit that the models were crude and not very realistic, but were the best that could be done with available computers and programming methods. They said our options were to either believe those crude models or believe the opinions of experienced, datafocused scientists. Having done a great deal of computer modeling myself, I appreciated their acknowledgment of the limits of their methods. But I hear no such statements today. Oddly, the forecasts of computer models have become our new reality, while facts such as the few extinctions of the past 2.5 million years are pushed aside, as if they were not our reality.

A recent article in the well-respected journal American Scientist explained why the glacier on Mt. Kilimanjaro could not be melting from global warming. Simply from an intellectual point of view it was fascinating -- especially the author's Sherlock Holmes approach to figuring out what was causing the glacier to melt. That it couldn't be global warming directly (i.e., the result of air around the glacier warming) was made clear by the fact that the air temperature at the altitude of the glacier is below freezing. This means that only direct radiant heat from sunlight could be warming and melting the glacier. The author also studied the shape of the glacier and deduced that its melting pattern was consistent with radiant heat but not air temperature. Although acknowledged by many scientists, the paper is scorned by the true believers in global warming.

We are told that the melting of the arctic ice will be a disaster. But during the famous medieval warming period -- A.D. 750 to 1230 or so -- the Vikings found the warmer northern climate to their advantage. Emmanuel Le Roy Ladurie addressed this in his book "Times of Feast, Times of Famine: A History of Climate Since the Year 1000," perhaps the greatest book about climate change before the onset of modern concerns with global warming. He wrote that Erik the Red "took advantage of a sea relatively free of ice to sail due west from Iceland to reach Greenland. . ... Two and a half centuries later, at the height of the climatic and demographic fortunes of the northern settlers, a bishopric of Greenland was founded at Gardar in 1126."

Ladurie pointed out that "it is reasonable to think of the Vikings as unconsciously taking advantage of this [referring to the warming of the Middle Ages] to colonize the most northern and inclement of their conquests, Iceland and Greenland." Good thing that Erik the Red didn't have Al Gore or his climatologists as his advisers. Should we therefore dismiss global warming? Of course not. But we should make a realistic assessment, as rationally as possible, about its cultural, economic and environmental effects. As Erik the Red might have told you, not everything due to a climatic warming is bad, nor is everything that is bad due to a climatic warming.

We should approach the problem the way we decide whether to buy insurance and take precautions against other catastrophes -- wildfires, hurricanes, earthquakes. And as I have written elsewhere, many of the actions we would take to reduce greenhouse-gas production and mitigate global-warming effects are beneficial anyway, most particularly a movement away from fossil fuels to alternative solar and wind energy.

My concern is that we may be moving away from an irrational lack of concern about climate change to an equally irrational panic about it.

Many of my colleagues ask, "What's the problem? Hasn't it been a good thing to raise public concern?" The problem is that in this panic we are going to spend our money unwisely, we will take actions that are counterproductive, and we will fail to do many of those things that will benefit the environment and ourselves.

For example, right now the clearest threat to many species is habitat destruction. Take the orangutans, for instance, one of those charismatic species that people are often fascinated by and concerned about. They are endangered because of deforestation. In our fear of global warming, it would be sad if we fail to find funds to purchase those forests before they are destroyed, and thus let this species go extinct.

At the heart of the matter is how much faith we decide to put in science -- even how much faith scientists put in science. Our times have benefited from clear-thinking, science-based rationality. I hope this prevails as we try to deal with our changing climate.

Dmarinn taldi upp nu villur dm snum:

Villa 1:
Mynd Al Gore: "nstu framt" mun brnun Grnlandsjkuls ea Vestur-Suurskautslandsins valda 7 metra hkkun sjvarbors. A sea-level rise of up to 20 feet would be caused by melting of either West Antarctica or Greenland "in the near future".
Dmarinn: etta er greinilega orum auki til a vekja athygli. a er viurkennt a brnun Grnlandsjkuls myndi valda esari hkkun sjvarbors, en aeins eftir sund r. "This is distinctly alarmist and part of Mr Gore's "wake-up call". It was common ground that if Greenland melted it would release this amount of water - "but only after, and over, millennia."

Villa 2:
Mynd Al Gore: egar er fari a fla yfir bygg kralrif Kyrrahafi vegna hnatthlnunar af mannavldum. Low-lying inhabited Pacific atolls are already "being inundated because of anthropogenic global warming."
Dmarinn: a er ekkert sem bendir til ess a nokkur flksfltti hafi tt sr sta. There was no evidence of any evacuation having yet happened.

Villa 3:
Mynd Al Gore: frslumyndinni er v lst hvernig hnatthlnun geti stva Golfstrauminn Atlantshafinu. The documentary described global warming potentially "shutting down the Ocean Conveyor" - the process by which the Gulf Stream is carried over the North Atlantic to Western Europe.
Dmarinn: Samkvmt skrslu Nefndar Sameinuu janna um loftslagsbreytingar (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change - IPCC) er mjg lklegt a hann stvist, en a gti hgt honum. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), it was "very unlikely" it would be shut down, though it might slow down.

Villa 4:
Mynd Al Gore: Hann snir kvikmyndinni tvo ferla, annan sem snir aukningu koltvsrings (CO2) og hinn hkkun hitastigs 650.000 r og fullyrir a ferlarnir sni nkvma samsvrun. He asserted - by ridiculing the opposite view - that two graphs, one plotting a rise in C02 and the other the rise in temperature over a period of 650,000 years, showed "an exact fit".
Dmarinn: a s almennt lit vsindamanna a a s samband arna milli, s a ekki veru sem Gore vill gefa til kynna. Although there was general scientific agreement that there was a connection, "the two graphs do not establish what Mr Gore asserts".

Villa 5:
Mynd Al Gore: Hnatthlnun er kennt um a snjr Kilimanjaro fjalli hafi fari minnkandi. The disappearance of snow on Mt Kilimanjaro was expressly attributable to global warming.
Dmarinn: a er ekki samrmi vi almennt vsindalegt lit a hrfun snvar Kilimanjarofjalli s a kenna hnatthlnun af mannavldum. This "specifically impressed" David Miliband, the Environment Secretary, but the scientific consensus was that it cannot be established that the recession of snows on Mt Kilimanjaro is mainly attributable to human-induced climate change.

Villa 6:
Mynd Al Gore: Uppornun Chad vatns er kvikmyndinni nota sem dmi um hamfarir af vldum hnatthlnunnar, sagi dmarinn. The drying up of Lake Chad was used in the film as a prime example of a catastrophic result of global warming, said the judge.
Dmarinn: a er almennt viurkennt a ngar sannanir su fyrir hendi til a styja annig tengsl. a er liti miklu lklegra a sturnar s arar, svo sem flksfjlgun og ofbeit, svo og stabundnar loftslagsbreytingar. It is generally accepted that the evidence remains insufficient to establish such an attribution. It is apparently considered to be far more likely to result from other factors, such as population increase and over-grazing, and regional climate variability."

Villa 7:
Mynd Al Gore: Hnatthlnun er kennt um fellibylinn Katrnu og eyileggingu hans New Orleans. Hurricane Katrina and the consequent devastation in New Orleans to global warming.

"The only scientific study that either side before me can find is one which indicates that four polar bears have recently been found drowned because of a storm." That was not to say there might not in future be drowning-related deaths of bears if the trend of regression of pack ice continued - "but it plainly does not support Mr Gore's description".

Dmarinn: IPCC (Nefnd Sameinuu janna um loftslagsbreytingar) hefur sagt skrslu sinni, a ef hitinn hkkai um 1-3 grur Celcius, yri meira um litbreytingar og daua kralla, nema krallinn gti alagast.

The IPCC had reported that, if temperatures were to rise by 1-3 degrees centigrade, there would be increased coral bleaching and mortality, unless the coral could adapt. But separating the impacts of stresses due to climate change from other stresses, such as over-fishing, and pollution was difficult.
