Roundup for the 18th of September 2013 and transients on Facebook

Before I get into today's roundup of various articles, I just setup a facebook page for the site here. You can find it here,

Note that facebook has a new policy in relation to 'pages' and even if you are following a page, you won't always get an update on your news feed because of a limit that has been put on the number of people that 'like' a page and when updates from that page get displayed in the feeds.

So just be aware that you could have some pages on facebook which you may be wondering why there have been no updates with... there probably have, but you just haven't been shown them. To double check, just go directly to the particular page that your wondering about.

"The consensus as described by the survey is virtually meaningless and tells us nothing about the current state of scientific opinion beyond the trivial observation that carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas and that human activities have warmed the planet to some unspecified extent. The survey methodology therefore fails to address the key points that are in dispute in the global warming debate.""
