    Italian scientists claim to invent cold fusion - (A fairly decent overview of the main points, but leans heavy on the skeptical tone, and exhibits an obvious lack of appreciation of the extensive science behind the field in general. But at least they covered it -- something very few news agencies are doing, yet; the previous one being Discovery two days ago.) (TechEye.net; January , 2011)

    Cold Fusion Claims Resurface - Discovery's coverage of the Italian breakthrough is even more pathetic that Popular Science, saying "Pons and Fleischmann ... remain adamant that their research was valid, though no one has been able to reproduce their findings"; when it has been reproduced roughly 17,000 times. Mainstream publications are digging their grave by such ridiculous idiocy. (Discovery; January 21, 2011)

    New Term "Atmospheric Rivers" Tells of Shifting Ocean and Jet Stream Currents - A recent article published January 15th by NOAA speaks of a super-storm threat to California. Scientists say a plausible super-storm that could devastate California would be fed by an "atmospheric river" moving water at the same rate as 50 Mississippi rivers. It is driven by a large coronal hole on the Sun that has opened up releasing large amounts of charged particles. (EarthChangesMedia; January 16, 2011)
