The Beryllium cycle as it applies to weathering

A surprising finding: weathering of rocks doesn’t change with climate change

Constant weathering Surprisingly stable behavior despite glacial and interglacial periods From: GFZ GeoForschungsZentrum Potsdam, Helmholtz Centre That weathering has to do with the weather is obvious in itself. All the more astonishing, therefore, are the research results of a group of scientists from the GFZ German Research Center for Geosciences in Potsdam and Stanford University,…

A benefit of increased Carbon Dioxide: increased efficiency in tree growth, no “Mike’s Nature trick” needed

Gosh, whouda thunk it? There goes Mann’s hockey stick. No wonder he had to truncate all the data after 1960 and splice on the instrumental record. Of course, as I’ve said before, Mann ignored Liebigs Law to make the “big lies” called “Mikes Nature trick” and “hide the decline“. Trees simply can’t be just a…
