Trump Shows A Fake Hurricane Map Altered With A Sharpie, Inspires 30 Hilarious Memes

The President of the United States Donald Trump is making headlines once again. The newest ‘scandal’ to rock the Presidency has everything to do with the idea that just because you draw on something with a marker pen, it doesn’t change reality. The only ones with the power to turn ink into reality are writers and artists, and Trump is neither. When the President showed off a predictive National Hurricane Center map, it looked like it was drawn on with a Sharpie in one place. Trump insisted that hurricane Dorian had a “95% chance” of hitting Alabama, even though the National Weather Service denied it. And, boy, did the internet love where this was going. The memes started coming in …

Climate change kills off clouds over the ocean in new simulation

We all know climate change is affecting weather systems and ecosystems around the world, but exactly how and in what way is still a topic of intense study. New simulations made possible by higher-powered computers suggest that cloud cover over oceans may die off altogether once a certain level of CO2 has been reached, accelerating warming and contributing to a vicious cycle. A paper published in Nature details the new, far more detailed simulation of cloud formation and the effects of solar radiation thereupon. The researchers, from the California Institute of Technology, explain that previous simulation techniques were not nearly granular enough to resolve effects happening at the scale of meters rather than kilometers. These global climate models seem particularly …
