#introductions Hey everyone! I juggle roles being a Postdoc at MISU (Stockholm University), research software developer, blogger and a person. Scientifically, I am trained in #FluidMechanics, fresh out of PhD a few months ago. I study geophysical flows and turbulence.
Do you know #ScienceFeedback? A group of scientists fighting fake news on climate change and health. They review viral "news" stories: make detailed comments with web annotations, a summary and a quantitative assessment.
High temperatures in widespread parts of Europe today.
Please heed advice from national meteorological services and stay cool and safe.
Overview at http://meteoalarm.eu
(Yesterday cooler at “only" 11.2°C)
♻ RT @Meteorologene@twitter.com:
Etter fire dager med temperatur over 20 grader i #Longyearbyen, er det ikke riktig like varmt i dag. Likevel er det fortsatt varme luftmasser i nord. Men vestavind gjør at Longyearbyen ligger på 11,2 grader i dag kl 15 (normalen for juli er 5,9 grader).
Earth has blue skies and red sunsets. Mars has red skies and blue sunsets.
The sky on Earth is blue because gas molecules reflect blue light. Earth sunsets look red because all the blue light has already been filtered out.
The sky on Mars is red because dust particles reflect red light. Martian sunsets look blue because all the red light has already been filtered out.
Two planets. Opposite skies.
Also, fun fact, the word green probably derives from the (reconstructed) proto-indo-european language root "ghre–".
That same word eventually evolved into the word grow.
The colour green is named after things that grow! 🌱
Red was one of the first colours humans ever used in prehistoric art, made from red ochre, dating back thousands of years.
The colour orange had no name in Europe until the 15th century, when it was named after the fruit.
The colour pink had no name in Europe until the 17th century, when it was named after a flower.

Do you already know Peer Community In ...? They mainly review preprints in the open before they are send to journals. Most communities are in the life sciences. @PeerCommunityIn
Proposal Raised For GNOME Software Labeling Its Carbon Cost / Environmental Impact http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=GNOME-Carbon-Cost-2020
Elizabeth Warren wants answers on Facebook’s fact-checking loophole Hill.vox.com/recode/2020/7/16/21327049/facebook-factchecking-climate-science-elizabeth-warren-opinion
Facebook pretends opinion articles cannot be fact checked to appease Republicans & their donors.
Warren calls Facebook out. The first example was a fact check I did for Climate Feedback. One of the dumb arguments was that global warming had "paused". In 2019 (!) when warming was exploding! We need better climate stooges.
I am extraordinarily pleased to announce a new release of my refactoring source-to-source compiler for FORTRAN 77! So happy!
