iPad baby baffled by paper magazine

@Ragarath Yup! my one year old smashes ants on the iPad but turns the pages of books and/or hands them to a grown up so they can be read to her. She also makes exactly the same pinch and zoom gesture when stroking the cat or beeping me on the nose. Perhaps more interaction with an analogue child is needed?

Global warming will not cause 'permanent El Niño'

In continent

In the Cretaceous Period the continents hadn't come together into their present form. The Oceans were completely different in regards to size and currents. The weather patterns therefore, must have been different to the present day as well.

In light of this I'm not sure how much the conclusions drawn in this paper appertain to our present situation. Though I'm all for not having a permanent El Nino.
