An important look at the dynamics between climate change and population, addressing a number of misconceptions, in Global warming policy: Is population left out in the cold?

An interesting look at Abrupt cloud clearing of marine stratocumulus in the subtropical southeast Atlantic attributed potentially to atmospheric gravity waves (AGW).  Interesting if increased atmospheric energy may mean more AGW and a positive feedback climate loop.

A place in the Sun is a perfect update on the state of helioscience and the observatories and probes being used and planned to study the sun.  Perfect timing for Parker Solar Probe launch.

A dust-enshrouded tidal disruption event with a resolved radio jet in a galaxy merger is a reminder of the amazing observation black hole astrophysics that we as a species can be proud to be enabling.  Amazing!

Ultrastable laser interferometry for earthquake detection with terrestrial and submarine cables reports on some incredible geophysics with applications for monitoring our planet.  @raspishake

Although water on Mars is over-reported – this is liquid water!  And the cool similarity to geophysical techniques used to identify liquid water beneath Antarctica now being used to find liquid water on Mars is cool.  So the report Radar evidence of subglacial liquid water on Mars was a fun read.

Space, still the final frontier is a good editorial by Dan Baker and Amal Chandran – looking at the changing environment in space but the continued challenges.

Hackers easily fool artificial intelligences describes the current state (a big mess!) in adversarial machine learning.

Confronting and unhealthy ecosystem is a book review of The Secret Life of Science looking at the ecosystem of doing science (a bit meta – Scientists looking at how we do science).  It raises some important questions about the sustainability (workforce-wise) of how we do science.

Human influence on the seasonal cycle of tropospheric temperature is a great summary of a look to quantify the anthropogenic component of the current climate change.  A worthwhile and important challenge.

I always love to see and keep up with subglacial hydrology, so Friction at the bed does not control fast glacier flow is a good read and a look at Greenland.
