Fraser Cain824,747Super Science Circle for October, 2013I know it's been a while, so it's time for a new Super Science Circle - the October 2013 edition.In case you weren't aware, the Super Science Circle is a list of more than 400 people who are actively engaged on Google+ and regularly post about science and education. We've got journalists, scientists, even a few astronauts. The Super Science Circle should be your best response to anyone who tells you that Google+ is just a ghost town. If you love science, this circle will deliver the goods.If you know anyone who actively posts about science, please let me know and I'll add them to the list.2013-10-04 20:14:53415304682

Michael J. Coffey1,820July 2013 EngagersThank you to everyone in this circle--last month you mentioned me, commented on a post, or shared.  Well, and a couple that had posted something I thought was great.  And maybe one or two people who just +1'd something of mine.  I'm still kind of figuring out what my rules are for my engagement circle.  Anyway, this is a great group of people, with a heavy weighting toward people who talk about tea and tech/business marketing/social media (unsurprisingly, if you know me). #sharedcircles  2013-08-03 18:26:1490315
Fraser Cain798,034Super Science Circle, July 2013 EditionNeed more science in your streams? Want to convince a friend that Google+ is a thriving place of science and rational thinking?

FOR SCIENCE!Every single person in this circle is active on Google+ and regularly contributes high quality posts about science. You've got my personal guarantee.As always, I recommend you import this group into a temporary circle and look for people who match your interests. Then pull them over into more permanent locations in your circles. Or just wait for me to give you an update next month.If you want to be included in this circle, just make a post in the comments and I'll check out your profile.I'm looking for people who:1. Are active on Google+ (but not too active)2. Regularly post about science3. Provide context and additional information, and not just bare links or annoying memes.2013-07-16 18:35:56415255987

Fraser Cain779,548Super Science Circle - May 2013 EditionNeed more science in your Google+? Well, here's all the science you can handle! Enjoy my latest, heavily curated edition of the Super Science Circle.Please share this circle... for Science!For the uninitiated, I maintain a circle of 450+ people who are active on Google+ and regularly post on Google+. In this circle you'll find scientists, journalists, astronauts, educators, and science enthusiasts. By importing this circle into your own circles, you'll immediately gain a vibrant and fascinating feed of amazing science stories.I recognize that it might be too much science, so I suggest you create a brand new temporary circle and evaluate the people in the circle. Only transfer the keepers to your permanent circles. Then, when I update the circle next month, rinse and repeat.Are you active on G+ and regularly post about science? +mention me and I'll check out your profile.Remember, please share this post2013-05-22 19:26:51456348088
Fraser Cain770,050Super Science Circle - April 2013 EditionIt's time for another sharing of my Super Science Circle. This is a collection of 400+ active people on Google+ who often post about science. If anyone tells you G+ is a ghost town (not that anyone does any more), get them to import this circle. PLEASE SHARE THIS CIRCLE... FOR SCIENCE!I have personally reviewed each and every person on this list, to make sure that they:1. Are active and engaged on Google+2. Regularly post science-related stories on Google+In this list you'll find scientists, journalists, researchers, professors, astronauts and general science enthusiasts. Not everyone in this list is going to be to your personal liking. So what you'll want to do is import the list into a temporary circle. Then move people over one by one into more permanent locations in your circles.I'm always looking for more people to add to the list, so if you know people who meet my criteria, feel free to nominate them.Again, please share the circle.

Fraser Cain759,117The Return of the Super Science CircleOkay, I'll admit, I made a mistake in retiring the Super Science Circle. I wasn't wrong; Communities are still the future and the best way to make friends here on Google+. But I realized that the Super Science Circle is simple and efficient way to get new people to see that Google+ isn't a ghost town.PLEASE SHARE THIS POST... FOR SCIENCE!When I was attending +ScienceOnline 2013, I must have helped dozens of people join Google+, and the first thing I had them do was import this circle. It's an invaluable tool for getting new people up to speed.So, I just did a complete refresh on the circle. I examined every single member and judged them according to my two-part criteria:1. Active in the last 30 days or so.2. Regularly post on scientific topics.If you know anyone who might make a good candidate for this circle, please let me know.As always, import this circle into a new, temporary circle, and then you can refresh it when I share a new version.DON'T FORGET TO SHARE THIS POST2013-03-19 22:39:3139967163160

Fraser Cain694,882The Final Super Science CircleWell, this is it, this is going to be the last posting of the Super Science Circle. Why? Communities, that's why. In case you didn't know, I've been maintaining my Super Science Circle from the very beginning of Google+. As soon as the feature to share circles was enabled, I was happy to share those circles around into Google. I did this because it was very difficult for people with related interests (science) to be able to find each other. I wanted new G+ users to realize this place isn't a ghost town; there are vibrant groups of people actively discussing scientific topics.But it was a hack. Each month took me almost an entire day to curate down the list of people, remove the inactive, and incorporate newly active people who often posted about science. And it was always imperfect. Some people got a massive boost in followers and engagement, while other, equally deserving people were left out.It was inelegant, inefficient and arbitrary.But now you can do this all on your own. You can go into any Community that matches your interest and instantly discover thousands of people who share your enthusiasm for a topic - just joining a Community will bring a trickle of posts about topics that interest you back into your stream. Keep your participation in the Community, or circle the most interesting people and harvest them back into your own stream.In the coming months, I'll be suggesting Communities you should join, instead of people you should circle. Thanks to everyone for using the shared circles and helping science get such a firm foothold here on Google+. Thanks to all the past and present members of the Super Science Circle for sharing such wonderful stuff.Science!2013-01-17 02:59:31420544084

Peter Smalley (Merkabah)10,068#sharedpubliccircles   #science  It's been a while since I shared a circle. Let's fix that, shall we? Here is my Circle of Science. Here you will find people who are practicing scientists, science writers, and science enthusiasts - and sometimes all three at once. There are biologists, chemists, physicists, microbiologists, food safety scientists, mathematicians, neurologists, astronomers and many other disciplines represented here. But regardless of their specialties they are intelligent, interested, and interesting.I won't call this a curated circle per se, but I can personally speak to quality of many of these individuals. Many of them are true gems.FOR SCIENCE!2012-11-26 17:29:545015211

Paul Christen0To the person that originally shared this circle with me (I forgot who...)Thank you.I am getting really tired of the glorification of stupid and the vilification of intelligence. I am afraid that its a systemic problem and frankly, I see no end in sight. Its similar to American politics in many ways."Well sure, professional athletes shouldn't rape women, but the dood can throw a football!" "Well, yeah, he ran a dog fighting ring, but let him play football and be a role model to  children anyway."We had a President, that was re-elected, that on any scale was a buffoon at best.The list goes on, and lets not forget the other side  of the  proverbial  coin, how often have we heard politicians talk about the "elite smart people"?Watch an episode or two of "Big Bang Theory". REALLY funny show, I refuse to watch it. I saw two episodes and both portrayed intelligence as negative.I heard an adult say (and I shit you not) "Kids don't need to learn what the mathematical median is, its useless knowledge, average is good enough." I tried to explain how it differs from average and how knowing the average and the median can help get a better view of the data (no point in going too deep) and got "nope, not needed".Whatever, I'm ranting and off the rails here.Do what you need to do to keep YOUR intelligence up and those around you, for the love  of Xenu, fight the good fight. Following this  circle  might help.2012-11-07 13:15:584135110

About.com has severed its deal with me to write about geology. Since 1997, I've been building geology.about.com into a comprehensive set of articles and photos to give citizens the background of knowledge they need for informed participation in life, government and education. About.com cut me off yesterday, and my content there belongs to them. It's still good stuff, and I'll keep linking to it as I see fit.

As an example, I give you my article on another cataclysm that happened yesterday, in history: the Tunguska cosmic impact.

This spot on Vale Avenue has a sidewalk stamp made by Douglas & Wolfe during their first year of business. Douglas died or left in 1945, and R. G. Wolfe carried on alone. His latest mark that I have found is from 1967. So here he was one day, at the end of his career. Knees and back probably shot. But he still took pride in good work, and he must have remembered that day in 1926, and the way Oakland used to be, as he troweled the job finished, stood up and looked around.

Two New Studies Underline How Methane Matters to Global Carbon Cycle

"Two major problems with methane are that it still burns carbon (although less than half as much as coal) and that the gas itself is a potent greenhouse gas. Wherever it leaks into the air, methane does harm. Two new studies shed light on each of these problems."

Studying Exoplanets: What A Thousand Points of Light Might Reveal About Earth

"Since the century began, astronomers have been discovering new planets around other stars—exoplanets. This harvest of information has become a flood—NASA’s PlanetQuest site now lists more than 5000 exoplanets. Almost all of them are represented by “impurities” in a stream of starlight, no more than a single pixel in extent, registered by a telescope in outer space. Planetary scientist Nicolas Cowan explains in a new paper that we can learn a lot from those thousand points of light."

“President Obama and the Democrats are once again unleashing the Environmental Protection Agency on the American people. This is Obamacare for the environment: guaranteed to raise costs, reduce choices, and destroy an existing industry. By the time EPA is finished, millions of Americans will be freezing in the dark.

“The proposed rules on electric power plants’ carbon emissions would cost approximately $51 billion a year and destroy 224,000 jobs each year through 2030. The poor and people on fixed incomes will be hurt the most. And all this pain will be for absolutely no gain: It will have no impact at all on the global climate.

“Republicans in the House and Senate are right to oppose EPA’s new global warming rules. They are based on junk science and a cavalier disregard for the impact of higher energy prices on the typical family. Voters will do well to remember who was on their side during the coming political battles.”

Joseph Bast President The Heartland Institute jbast@heartland.org 312/377-4000

“The Obama administration is declaring war on affordable energy, targeting the coal power that is America’s least-expensive source of electricity. The rising electricity costs that will necessarily follow EPA’s new restrictions will reduce Americans’ standard of living and give a competitive economic advantage to foreign nations such as China and India.

“None of these new restrictions are necessary or justifiable. American carbon dioxide emissions are lower now than they were at the turn of the century. Global temperatures have not risen since the Clinton administration. And 97 percent of United Nations climate models cannot account for the ongoing global temperature stagnation.”

James M. Taylor Senior Fellow for Environmental Policy The Heartland Institute jtaylor@heartland.org 727/215-3192

“The president’s term in office has created so many issues which have undermined the public’s confidence in him, that he has chosen to double down on an issue that few people fully understand from a scientific position but will generally believe is making an effort on behalf of the nation’s health and future well-being. While he is technically 100 percent incorrect as to the environmental benefits of his actions, he believes the public will support him.

“It could be the greatest miscalculation of his presidency if, in fact, cooler minds in the opposition can mount a sensible campaign to educate the public as to why he is wrong and how the economic impacts will be absolutely disastrous in the immediate future. If done intelligently, this draconian action by the president could cost his party the Senate in the November elections and dramatically increase the Republican majority in the House of Representatives – which will enable the Republicans to stymie any further legislative action by the president for the remainder of his term.”

Jay Lehr Science Director The Heartland Institute jlehr@heartland.org 312/377-4000

“In his Saturday address, the president said, ‘We don’t have to choose between the health of our economy and the health of our children.’ He’s right about that, and dead wrong in his CO2 policy. Carbon dioxide is essential to plant growth – more carbon dioxide makes for a greener planet – and human emissions are a very small influence on the overall amount of CO2 in the atmosphere. CO2 emissions boost the economy and don’t hurt the planet – in fact they most likely benefit the biosphere. The new EPA rules are as wrongheaded as they can be.”

S.T. Karnick Director of Research The Heartland Institute skarnick@heartland.org 312/377-4000

“I just don’t buy the argument that the United States has to be a ‘leader’ in reducing greenhouse gas emissions in order for most prolific carbon dioxide (CO2) emitters, China and India, to hopefully pursue similar policies. The European Union already tried to be that leader and their energy prices rose so high that EU leaders are seriously reconsidering them. Knowing this, why shouldn’t our own leaders think to avoid the EU’s mistakes altogether?”

Taylor Smith Policy Analyst The Heartland Institute tsmith@heartland.org 312/377-4000

“Carbon dioxide is not a pollutant. It is a naturally occurring trace gas in the atmosphere that is essential to life on Earth. All fauna, including humans, emit CO2 when we breathe out. All flora, from vegetables to weeds to trees, must have CO2 for photosynthesis. It is invisible and odorless.

“The president’s plan will destroy jobs and raise costs for families across America. This proposal may be Obama’s last best chance at strengthening his position with environmentalists who were disappointed in his failure in his first term to create a cap-and-trade system for limiting carbon emissions.

“Fossil fuel-fired power stations comprise almost 75 percent of the generating capacity and nearly 66 percent of the electricity generated in the United States. Here’s the bottom line: This policy will cause U.S. consumers to pay nearly $290 billion more for electricity between 2014 and 2030. And it appears the entire debate is now political, not about the bad science.”

John Coleman Meteorologist Policy Advisor, Environment The Heartland Institute media@heartland.org 312/377-4000

“Thanks to the Obama administration’s EPA and the new regulations released today, America is poised to become the ‘no pee’ section of the global swimming pool – and the useless actions will cost us a bundle-raising energy costs, adding new taxes, and crippling the economy.

“Australia has already walked away from its previous administration’s stringent climate policies due to economic pain and public backlash. Germany is becoming more dependent on coal-fueled electricity. Wood is the number one renewable fuel in Europe. Following what has already taken place in England and much of Europe, Spain just announced it is cutting back on its green energy programs. China and India have repeatedly refused to cripple their growing economies by cutting back on their fossil fuel-based energy usage. But Obama needs his legacy. If Congress doesn’t do something to stop or block the new regulations, he’ll get his legacy: Hurting our economy and killing American jobs. All the regulations the administration may impose will not motivate the rest of the world to follow our bad policies. Just because we declare that we won’t pee in the pool, won’t stop the others. And, just like the water in the pool, CO2 emissions are fungible. We’ll be stuck in our little no-pee section with a crippled economy while the rest of the world will be frolicking in unfettered growth.”

Marita Noon Executive Director Citizens Alliance for Responsible Energy marita@responsiblenergy.org 505/239-8998 \

“The Obama administration rule to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from electric power generation by 30 percent by 2030 will have no influence on global warming or the new words for this event of climate change or climate disruption. It most certainly will increase electricity bills for the entire country – in particular in the Midwest, where coal is used for the majority of power generation. Higher utility bills mean suffering for middle-income Americans and those with less financial means. Lives will be lost as people forgo heating and air conditioning in times of extreme cold or heat. All this loss for naught.”

James H. Rust Professor of nuclear engineering (ret.), Georgia Tech Policy Advisor,The Heartland Institute jrust@bellsouth.net 312/377-4000

“Simply put, the new Environmental Protection Agency regulations to require further reduction in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by coal-fired plants that produce 40 percent of the nation’s electricity – down 10 percent since President Obama took office in 2009 – have no basis in science or truth. These regulations will also affect other industries and business sectors that emit CO2, causing costs to rise. This is occurring at a time when the economy is still struggling to recover from the 2008 financial crisis. The EPA refers to carbon dioxide as ‘pollution’ when it is, in fact, an atmospheric gas vital to all life on Earth, responsible for all the vegetation on which we depend in so many ways, particularly as food. The EPA is deliberately trying to blur the line between CO2 and ‘soot’ when, in fact, the EPA’s own data about the presence of soot puts it below its own standards, having declined 50 percent since 1999.

"The president’s animus toward coal-fired energy defies any rational explanation. A proposed cap-and-trade plan regarding CO2 was defeated by the Congress and now he is using the EPA to bypass legislators and the public in ways that will increase the cost of electricity for everyone for no legitimate reason. Congress must act to remove these regulations and restrict further attacks on the nation’s economy by the EPA.” Alan Caruba Founder, The National Anxiety Center Policy Advisor, The Heartland Institute acaruba@aol.com 312/377-4000

The eruption of Lassen Volcano began today 100 years ago. The last previous eruption in the area of the 48 states was in the 1850s. The next one was at Mount St Helens, 66 years later. That was 34 years ago. We're pretty sure to have another volcanic eruption in the conterminous US within your child's lifetime.

A hundred and fifty years ago today, east of Gilroy near today's Casa de Fruta, two grizzled guys met and had a d--d memorable conversation about the old West. Geologist William Brewer was its witness.

That buzzy hypothesis about a giant North American impact 12.8 thousand years ago? Ooops, apparently nearly all the evidence is from sites that don't date from 12.8 ka.

Another bit of the puzzle of the Hayward fault in Oakland. South of this area the fault trace become diffuse for about a mile, but here it's pretty clear-cut.

When I saw this photo yesterday, I tossed the idea I was working on and jumped on this one.

NOAA Expedition Finds Asphalt Volcanic "Tar Lilies" in Gulf of Mexico

"Last week, an undersea expedition in the Gulf of Mexico came upon something rarely seen: asphalt volcanism, or eruptions of natural tar. But rather than an icky sticky mess, the thick petroleum “lava” had built elegant flower-like forms whose new name, “tar lilies,” is this year’s best entry in the long list of geological phenomena."

This spot on Vale Avenue has a sidewalk stamp made by Douglas & Wolfe during their first year of business. Douglas died or left in 1945, and R. G. Wolfe carried on alone. His latest mark that I have found is from 1967. So here he was one day, at the end of his career. Knees and back probably shot. But he still took pride in good work, and he must have remembered that day in 1926, and the way Oakland used to be, as he troweled the job finished, stood up and looked around.

I wrote this up because it reminded me of my own geological adage, "leave the stone alone." Scientists have the privilege of molesting rare things in the name of science, and they should show the rest of us respect. You hear that, paleomagnetic sample drillers?

Biology Paradox: Killing and Collecting Rare Creatures to Prove They’re Not Extinct

A group of biologists asks their peers to start documenting newly discovered and "rediscovered" species by non-destructive techniques instead of killing a specimen to bring home.
