Modern global warming science began in 1979 with the publication of Charney et al in response to a request from a U.S. governmental office to create a study group for answering questions about global warming. Charney et al modeled atmospheric effects and drew the conclusion that the average earth temperature would increase by about 3°C
The word 'listening' has many meanings, and the context, in which it is done, will often determine the level of concentration that is required for one to be considered to be listening. Many people work while listening to music playing in the background. People often talk in small groups, where there is little real listening by anyone
A warmer, wetter climate with more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere would undoubtedly produce more plant growth and more food. However climate-cooling policies that claim to prevent global warming by throttling the use of carbon fuels will definitely reduce food supply and increase food prices. The promotion of ethanol for motor fuel is anti-food
Here is simple math which shows that methane is weaker than carbon dioxide as a greenhouse gas. In fact, none of the greenhouse gases can produce heating, because the distance between unsaturated molecules is extreme--like one inch between each methane molecule which supposedly does the heating, and almost one millimeter between each carbon dioxide...
The epidemic of the deadly Ebola virus that was born in the depths of the jungle, has been spreading around the world with an unprecedented speed lately. It turns out that there is a vaccine against Ebola. Pentagon scientists were developing it for 30 years, and all the rights for the drug belong to the government of the United State
With the Cuban method of education, UNESCO declared Bolivia as a country that is free of illiteracy after the Government of President Evo Morales applied the "Yes I Can" method developed by Cuba which had already achieved great success in Venezuela and elsewhere.
Chikingunya, meaning "writhing around in pain", has hit the American continent for the first time, with 1,200 cases reported in El Salvador and 57 imported cases in the United States of America. This viral disease, carried by the mosquito, was found in the Americas for the first time last December. There is one new case every two minutes in some...
Russian scientists conducted a primary examination of the giant sinkhole in the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous District. The video of the bizarre hole has received more than two million views in several days. The scientists concluded that the crater was of natural origin and did not appear either as a result of a manmade impact or the fall of a meteorite
An ability to confront tanks has been an actual objective since 1916 - from the moment when the powerful war machine saw the light. Can the sword be stronger than the shield? Will tanks be able to resist the power of anti-tank means of the future? How can one destroy a modern tank that already comes complete with all possible means of protection?
A well-preserved carcass of a dinosaur, whose age is estimated at more than 120 million years, was found during excavations at the paleontological complex Shestakovsky in the Kemerovo region of Russia. Psittacosaurus is a representative of a group of horned dinosaurs that lived on the territory of what is now Asia about 130-100 million years ago
American astrophysicists, who previously stated that they had evidence to prove the existence of primary gravitational waves generated by the Big Bang, now say that they are not certain of their discovery. The question of the emergence of gravitational waves at the moment of the Big Bang will be postponed indefinitely
Self-awareness is the capacity to pay conscious attention to all aspects of yourself: to use sensory capacities such as sight, hearing and touch to provide accurate information about the external world; to use feelings such as thirst, hunger, nausea, dizziness and physical pain to provide accurate information about the state of your body
As debate on climate responses persists, water levels rise and climate change is causing destruction around the world. Among the most affected are women, as they gather water, fish, or farm land affected by flooding. During pregnancy and motherhood, their health is more at risk. Meanwhile, their voices are often the last to be heard in...
