150-year global ice record reveals major warming trend

... the 184 ice records from 1950 to 1995, showed the variability in freeze and breakup dates increased in the last three decades. Magnuson says it might be related to intensification of global climate drivers such as the El Nino /La Nina effects in the Pacific Ocean. Magnuson says the ecological effects of global ...

Warming trend seen in late freeze, early thaw of northern waterways, say Science researchers

...arch has confirmed an increase in the year-to-year variability of Northern Hemisphere freeze and ice breakup dates during the last half of the 20th century. An increase in extreme climate events like the recent powerful El Nio-La Nia cycles, Magnuson suggested, may be behind this rise in variability. "One of...

Report on dietary supplements containing ephedra makes urgent call for research to develop dose guidelines, safety warnings

...hedrine-containing products are sold, with a great variability in the accuracy, completeness and adequacy of labels citing ingredients and potential adverse health effects, Haller and Benowitz say."There must be more FDA regulatory control," Haller said. First, uniform product labeling should be enforced, with a...

Like grapefruit, sour oranges boost drug effectiveness, scientists find, and also why

...for making the drugs stronger. "Because of the variability involved in grapefruit juices, everyone has been trying to figure out what causes the effect so that we can add that compound directly to pills instead," Watkins said. "Our prior research suggested that a compound called DHB (dihydroxybergamottin) wa...

Drug resistance found to vary by ethnicity

Until now, this variability has been attributedto "genetic modifiers" but the present study raises the possibility that itis influenced, perhaps to a significant extent, by nutritional factors. Individuals afflicted with SMA have a genetic deficiency in a protein calledSMN (su...

Climate sensitivity may be higher than many think, researchers say

...The researchers found that, as a result of natural variability and uncertainty in the radiative forcing, the climate sensitivity could lie between 1 and 10 degrees Centigrade. "Consequently, there is a 54 percent likelihood that the climate sensitivity lies outside the IPCC range," Schlesinger said."Our results...
