First and foremost, I’d like to wish all of my followers and readers a very Happy New Year! I hope the coming year brings you a wealth of new knowledge, good health, and a plethora of good times!
There’s a lot to be optimistic about in the coming year. In spite of ongoing obstacles, I’ve a strong intuitive sense that the best is yet to come for our generation and future ones.
This week’s post will have a few retrospective links taking a look back at various science stories of 2015…so on that note, let’s get started.
For your consideration, here are this week’s links…
From the American Association For The Advancement Of Science, a nice look back at their “best of 2015” science stories.
It’s hard to believe in 2016 that this is still and issue, but sadly it is. “Gender Equality In Science Will Require A Cultural Shift.”
Twitter has a new policy to ban hateful conduct, specifically terrorist groups.
A very disconcerting privacy and security read. “Recently Bought A Windows Computer? Microsoft Probably Had Your Encryption Key.”
Nice read on the Hubble telescope viewing the merger of two galaxies.
A fascinating retrospective. “‘Forgotten’ 19th Century Images of Eclipses, Stars, & Planets Found.”
The “Quakegate” saga continues. Oklahoma State Rep on oil companies and earthquakes: “No one is taking this issue seriously.”
In spite of some negatives, there were many positive environmental events during 2015.
A spectacular array of the top fifteen images of Earth from NASA taken during 2015.
More amazing NASA imagery of reading the English alphabet from space.
Hurricane Patricia is Climate Central’s image of the year. Considering the intensity of Patricia, it’s a sound choice!
A nice retrospective from Climate Central of their picks for the seven most interesting climate findings of 2015.
From Climate Reality, their take on the top climate moments of 2015.
Will 2016 be as warm as 2015? If the trend continues, the chances are good it will be as warm if not warmer.

El Nino may be responsible for havoc in some locations, but the folks in California see a positive side.
From Dr. Marshall Shepherd, a nice read on satellite vs. “ground” temperature readings.
ON THE LIGHTER SIDE
For my fellow silent film fanatics…”The Most Risque Moments In Silent Cinema.”
