Sea Ice, Super Symmetry

21 Dec 2013

At ... it seems Arctic sea ice has increased by 50 per cent since last year. Why isn't this common knowledge? What has the mainstream media got against telling the truth? They couldn't stop gloating last autumn when sea ice was low. In fact, they were hyperventillating - even the politicos got very excited. This year - virtually nothing. Mind you, they reckon most people are completely turned off global warming and climate change, so much so they stick their fingers in their ears whenever it is mentioned on the TV or radio, or in printed and digital news outlets. It is an interesting tactic employed by those who want to keep the CAGW message alive and at a feeding frenzy (keeping the money flow and enrichment process in place). Make a monster out of a storm and thump the table when the temperatures are warmer than average - and ignore it when the cold weather sets in. We have had this played out over here in the UK with a warm autumn approaching Christmas, and the odd bit of windy weather and high tides. The media have made such a fuss about what is just ordinary weather one wonders what it is that is driving them to become so excited. It can't be anything other than 'follow the money'

At ... the shape of electrons is causing a problem - they are nice and round, almost perfectly so, a shapeliness that throws a curve at supersymmetry.

Research published in Science Express (Dec 19th) done in a humble university laboratory (at the not so humble Harvard and Yale) has proved so useful and definitive that one scientist was moved to say, 'it is amazing that some of the these supersymmetric particles would squeeze the electrons into a kind of egg shape. Our experiment it telling us that this just doesn't happen' and 'its unusual and satisfying that the exquisite precision achieved by our small team in a university lab probes the most fundamental building blocks of our universe at a sensitivity that complements what is being achieved by thousands at the world's largest accelerator (the Large Hadron Collider)'
