I'm confused. Although far from being an astro- (or any other kind of) physicist, it's unclear to me why Black Holes must collide. I can understand that when galaxies collide the black holes at there centers compete for the resulting mess, er mass. But why must they combine? Wouldn't the additional fuel be sufficient to cause a wave?
Shame on you! Planet: a celestial body moving in an elliptical orbit around a star.
No star, no planet.
Congrats on a typically clever headline!
Anther mind-bogglingly irrelevant piece of pseudo-science (note the use of "may"). Here's a documented, as opposed to hypothetical, bee problem: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/03/29/science/earth/soaring-bee-deaths-in-2012-sound-alarm-on-malady.html?pagewanted=all.
Could we have a moratorium on "anthropomorphic emissions (might) cause you-name-it" reports please?
"Boffins used thousands of kilometres of airborne radar data collected by NASA"??
Not to mention the fact that, oops, not only has the planet not warmed since 1997 but actually appears to be cooling despite a 35% increase in the anthropomorphic contribution to atmospheric CO2. LOL
"That's too narrow a view, argues Seager. "If there is one important lesson from exoplanets, it is that anything is possible within the laws of physics and chemistry," she writes." I'd have more confidence if she had written, "If there is one important lesson from exoplanets, it is that anything is possible within the laws of physics and chemistry is possible".
And what about that threat of havoc: an almost 10% rise in CO2 since 1996 and zero warming? How empty is that threat?
Best headline of the year!!!!
Doesn't make sense
If we might return to the subject of the article for a moment, the shape of the Lake suggests that the amplitude of the wave would increase, rather than decrease, between Lucerne and Geneva. If the source of the tsunami is correct, the amplitudes are wrong (reversed?).
