    from the equator to the poles. This process helps cool the equator and warm the poles of our planet. Without this process the equator would be much hotter and the poles would be much colder (Causes of Climate Change). Our oceans help with determining the concentration of carbon dioxide within our atmosphere; therefore, a change in our oceans current could result in a change of our climate.

Both articles focus on the origins and effects of climate change;…

    temperature of the Antarctica Peninsula at the time that the layers of snow that were formed was figured out by looking at the ratio of hydrogen’s isotopes. Deuterium is hydrogen with a neutron while, protium is hydrogen without any neutrons. It takes more energy to evaporate the heavier isotope, deuterium, from the ocean. When the clouds are formed from the evaporation, there will be a lower ratio of protium to deuterium. That ratio is in the snow that was formed. To show the changes in the…

Maybe it’s because it is so close to the Royal Society of Science, one of two places that shaped how Western Europeans do and talk about science, and the one responsible for elevating Issac Newton to science God and leaving Gottfried Leibniz a broken man who died homeless and intestate. Or maybe the Guardian wants to make sure scientists are heard and understood so others do not suffer because someone is petty, self-interested, or self-righteous.…
