    The Earth doesn't change very rapidly. Our oceanography textbook, The Oceans by Sverdrup, Johnson & Fleming was published in 1942. It's still considered to be essential reading.

      Trump gets a species before Inauguration Day!

      Unlike the Obama species, there's actually a reason to name this moth species after Trump...
      Small Honor: Tiny Moth Named for Trump
      By Mindy Weisberger, Senior Writer | January 17, 2017

      A miniscule moth with a wingspan of just 0.4 inches (9 millimeters) is the first species to be named for the soon-to-be president of the United States, Donald Trump.

      Yellow and white scales topping the moth's head resemble Trump's signature hairstyle, inspiring the name Neopalpa donaldtrumpi, wrote evolutionary biologist Vazrick Nazari, a researcher from Ottowa, Canada, in a new study.

        That and researchers are hoping Trump doesn't pull their funding as a cost savings....

          Might as well. They're not producing anything of national value.

          We need meaningful research that benefits all Americans, not the pseudo-scientific CRAP that currently is being passed off as "research".

            Trump team turns against ethanol, despite campaign rhetoric
            Billionaire buddy Carl Icahn likes this new atitude.


            As a candidate, Donald Trump supported ethanol. Today, perhaps, not so much. According to billionaire Carl Icahn, who is acting as a special adviser to Donald Trump, "there are people on the Trump team that believe ethanol itself does very little." Icahn himself doesn't like the US ethanol mandate, and said that the way that the program's biofuel credits are swapped is, "a black cesspool of trading if there ever was one."

            Icahn, of course, owns a majority stake in an independent oil refiner and loved Trump's pick of oil-industry-best-buddy (and ethanol foe) Scott Pruitt to lead the EPA, so he's not an independent observer. When Priutt was named to head the EPA, the price of the Renewable Identification Number (RINs), which are the currency for ethanol trading, cratered. They have since bounced back, but there are still reasons for the ethanol industry to fear Pruitt's effect.

            Bad guess. Trump is still a liberal democrat at heart.

            The Trump administration is moving to ease restrictions on ethanol in blended fuels. “Today, we are unleashing the power of E15 to fuel our country all year long,” President Trump announced at a rally in Iowa.

            He's charged the Environmental Protection Agency with beginning the process of raising the limits on ethanol in mixed fuels. Once implemented, E15 will be legal for gas stations to sell even outside the summer months. Unless you ride an electric motorcycle, this impacts your ride.

            But, this is great news for anyone that cares about the performance of their engine. This is the first step towards e85 eventually becoming a standard option in the future. Thank you Trump.

              The use of Ethanol in gas reduces the efficiency of gas 10% (or close to that... I feel Doc looming over me already) and doubled the price of corn for the Mexicans.
              You would think that people who "care" about the folks down South would know about that.

                So we should stifle our advancements to keep corn cheap in Mexico? No thanks, they can just grow more of their own instead of importing.

                  Corn is highly inefficient as biomass. You can feed a person for a year on the corn it takes to fill your tank. Hemp, OTH, is far more efficient ad does not detract from the food supply.

                    Cool. More money for farmers.

                      Not putting ethanol in vehicle fuel is even more efficient...
