Significant role played by oceans in ancient global cooling

Posted: 29 May 2011 02:41 AM PDT

Thirty-eight million years ago, tropical jungles thrived in what are now the cornfields of the American Midwest and furry marsupials wandered temperate forests in what is now the frozen Antarctic. A debate has long been raging in the scientific community on what changes in our global climate system led to such a major shift from the more tropical, greenhouse climate of the Eocene to the modern and much cooler climates of today. Researchers have now found some of the strongest evidence to date that the Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC) played a key role in the major shift in the global climate that began approximately 38 million years ago.

The longest cell in the history of life « Why Evolution Is True

Posted: 29 May 2011 12:29 AM PDT

One of my favorite proofs of evolution is the recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN)—the nerve that innervates the larynx from the brain, helping us speak and swallow. It takes a very circuitous course, looping from the brainstem down around the aorta and then back up to the larynx. It's a prime example of bad design, that is, of the ham-handedness of any creator that was responsible for designing organisms. Of course, we aren't designed, but evolved from very different ancestors. That's why our bodies are full of glitches and kludges, and this nerve is one of them.
