As the world warms and climate zones shift, species that are able may alter their range to try to keep themselves at a comfortable temperature. Although the oceans are generally warming more slowly than the land, migrations of marine species are well documented already. For organisms like fish, mobile adults can dynamically track suitable conditions. But many seafloor-dwelling critters primarily move in their wandering youth—as larvae that (mostly) passively ride the currents. Changing your destination isn’t so easy when you’re not in the driver’s seat.

Unfortunately, some of those species have been seen migrating the wrong way, toward even higher-temperature waters rather than away from them. We’ve seen this happen in the coastal northwest Atlantic, including in some commercially harvested species like clams. Seeing these species shift requires something unusual, since they're adapted to their current-catching lifestyle. So what gives?

Sort of related.

A new report published by the World Wildlife Fund reveals a devastating statistic: The population of the world’s animals has fallen by 68 percent since 1970, including mammals, birds, fish, reptiles and amphibians.

Outlined in the organization’s biannual Living Planet Report, researchers showcase indexes of animal population decline across all continents. Data show that the regions experiencing the highest rates of decline include Latin American, the Caribbean and Africa.

Several causes can be attributed to the decline in species, with two of the leading explanations being the overexploitation of species, as well as the deforestation of a diverse group of ecosystems, such as savannas, wetlands and forests. The report also highlights pollution and climate change as other factors. Notably, climate change is not one of the leading causes in loss of biodiversity currently, but is anticipated to become one of the leading drivers in the future.

Trump for sure wants to win not only the peace, but also physics noble prize this year!
Well, if he manages to let his head explode without interference from the outside..... he could get the physics noble prize as far as I'm concerned.
Even the Nobel prize for physics, but only postume of course and I don't know if that is possible.

No. They only award it to living people. It's hard to accept the award in Stockholm if you're dead.

He could still win the IgNobel prize. He'd have an excellent shot at it.

Maybe he hasn't heared about the Darwin awards yet, although he already tried to enter it when he took under own supervision Hydroxychloroquine.
Unfortunately, he's already spread his ignorant seed around, so it's too late for him to check out of the gene pool.

And Greece


After pounding parts of western and central Greece meteorologists have predicted a rare Mediterranean hurricane-like storm, or medicane, is headed south towards the island of Crete.

Authorities struggling to contain the impact of the cyclone, Medicane Ianos, said two people had died and at least one was missing as torrential rain and gale-force winds wielded a trail of destruction.

I knew that, though generally calm, the Med sometimes has huge storms, but I hadn't realised quite how severe they can be.
