The Ocean2K “Hockey Stick”

Climate Audit

The long-awaited (and long overdue) PAGES2K synthesis of 57 high-resolution ocean sediment series (OCEAN2K) was published a couple of weeks ago (see herehere). Co-author Michael Evans’ announcement made the results sound like the latest and perhaps most dramatic Hockey Stick yet:

Today, the Earth is warming about 20 times faster than it cooled during the past 1,800 years,” said Michael Evans, second author of the study and an associate professor in the University of Maryland’s Department of Geology and Earth System Science Interdisciplinary Center (ESSIC). “This study truly highlights the profound effects we are having on our climate today.”

A couple of news outlets announced its release with headlines like “1,800 years of global ocean cooling halted by global warming”, but the the event passed unnoticed at realclimate and the newest “Hockey Stick” was somehow omitted from David Appell’s list of bladed objects.

Mycoplasma – The Hidden Co-Infection of Lyme


When we all think co-infections of Lyme, Bartonella, Babesia, Ehrlichia, and Anaplasmosis are the ones that tend to come to mind. But we never seem to think about Mycoplasma, and it is commonly overlooked by ourselves, and our doctors as well. And it should not be overlooked. In one study, as many as seventy five percent of Lyme patients have Mycoplasma infections, making it the NUMBER ONE co-infection of Lyme, surpassing Bartonella and Babesia. Wow. 


If you continue reading, there seems to be an overlap of symptoms, diagnosis, growth, and treatment. 


What is Mycoplasma? Mycoplasma are the smallest organisms that do not have a cell wall or cell nucleus and act like parasites within a host. They can also take different shapes. There are many different strains but only about a dozen affect humans. Because of the versatility, they can hide from the immune system and affect it…

Yes, To Be Clear, I Am Anti-Testing, Anti-Grading

radical eyes for equity

Since the early to mid-1990s, I have actively practiced and preached de-testing and de-grading as an educator.

So, to be clear and not as some ploy to be provocative or to slip into hyperbole, I am solidly anti-testing as well as anti-grading.

That stance is based on a very simple point of logic: Tests and grades have been central to formal education for over a century, and the stakes of those tests and grades have dramatically increased over the last three decades; yet, virtually no one is satisfied with our system or so-called “student achievement.”

In the colloquial parlance of my South, we cannot admit that weighing a pig doesn’t make it fatter.

However, virtually every time I speak publicly, write a public piece, or am interviewed by the media about testing and grades, I come against something like this from Jordan Shapiro:

If we consider standardized testing in schools, it…
