It’s not all about carbon-dioxide. The earth is (or was) an self-stabilizing system More insolation leads to more evaporation of water, more clouds, more rain – and the overall system cools down. However, outside certain boundaries, the system is not self correcting and becomes unstable. For all we know the system will become unstable with unthinkable consequences, if the current overall temperature increases by more than 2 °C.
I am appalled by the comments and attitude of former colleagues, fellow geologists, geophysicists and other scientists. Based on their education, they should know better. Others have been lobbied and bribed to spread fake news.
It has been argued that infinity-corrected objectives without an auxiliary tube lens cannot produce an image on a camera’s sensor because »they focus on infinity« (whatever that may mean). With the examples shown, this myth has been dispelled.

The sample material has been washed down and concentrated by the rain and was collected with a tape lift from a specially prepared surface. So, what’s good about it? […]

The problem with coconut oil is at least two-fold: First, packaged coconut oil consists only of saturated fatty acids, secondly it is processed with hexane (a toxic solvent) and other organic solvents to remove unwanted color and flavor.
