adam’s curse, hotting it up, total recall, altruistic bacteria

In Adam’s Curse, Bryan Sykes makes the argument that theY chromosome has ~150k years left, at best. Unfortunately, the book isn’t available in the states yet.

In an exhaustive review of temperature-indicating phenomena, Jones P and Michael M find that The last 20 years have been hotter than the last 1800. Jones says “The climate sceptics are flogging a dead horse.”

Doonesbury suggests a pre-emptive recall petition.

In Bacteria as Multicellular Organisms they discuss terminal transposon mutations induced by environmental conditions that, while preventing the mutated bacteria from reproducing, permit its colleagues to do so.
