You mean they got it wrong?Obviously. If something happens "four times faster than thought" means they (whoever they are) thought wrong. Science is about creating usefully predictive mathematical models of what happens. If your model is wrong by a factor of 4, it is more properly called a guess.
If only a few specimens of an extinct species are left,...then it isn't extinct.
In Darwinism, it was said that animals pass seamlessly from one species to another,Not true. Successive generations evolve. The concept of "species" is not scientifically defined and is applied retrospectively to groups of animals that we consider "sufficiently distinct". Humans like arbitrary boundaries like speed limits, national boundaries, drinking age, etc but it would be foolish to pretend that they are anything more than a matter of convenience.
There's a lot of puzzles out thereInteresting how you can make a headline out of a scientific failure. "Man dies 200 years earlier than expected". "Clothes don't fit due to inaccurate measurement" What next?
Here's one https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2022/jul/05/global-heating-causes-methane-growth-four-times-faster-than-thought-study
Zimmermann also warned against focusing on a narrow idea of democracy as a “preference satisfaction” system for finding the most popular policies.With a name like Zimmerman, you would have thought this was instinctive. Or don't people study 20th century history these days?
as far as Brenda is concerned, when she passed Paul and said "Hi!" the invasion from Andromeda has been launched. Meanwhile, for Paul the meeting to decide whether to invade Earth or not hasn't finished yet.When did you become a Downing Street spokesman?
All charged particles have a magnetic moment due to its "intrinsic" spin.Only those with unpaired spins. An alpha particle has charge -2e but no magnetic moment. A uranium nucleus may or may not have a magnetic moment, depending not on its charge (which is always -92e) but on how many uncharged neutrons it contains.
Has quantum mechanics proved that reality does not exist?You can define a word to mean anything you like, then use any formalism you choose to prove that the thing you defined doesn't exist. As long as you have defined "exist" in a suitable manner.
High, thin clouds let sunlight through while effectively preventing heat from escaping to space as infrared radiation, providing a net warming effect. Low, thick clouds strongly reflect sunlight, while having little impact on infrared radiation escaping to space, creating a net cooling effect.
NASA seems to think otherwise though, expecting a 'dust minimum' to become a future norm.Interesting that they talk about the Sahara. Most of the Saharan dust that falls on the UK is quite large grit, much bigger than you need to nucleate raindrops.
If you could divide infinitely, we might ask how would anything get anywhere at a fundamental lengthDangerous use of "fundamental".
