What can you do to take strategic action yourself in relation to the climate catastrophe? Carbon dioxide and methane emissions as primary drivers of the problem. You can boycott products that produce carbon dioxide and/or methane in excessive quantities: for example, don't travel by car or aeroplane and don't eat meat
The Americans will not outdo the performance of Russian RD-180 engines. If you have ever watched Russian rockets and US shuttles taking off, you can see the difference. From an American shuttle, when it takes off, there is a large tail left, and the smoke in the tail is very thick, because the combustion of fuel is incomplete, so it falls down
Much is said about the USA's decision to send soldiers to fight Ebola in West Africa, little is said, as usual, about Cuba's decision to send a brigade of healthcare workers to West Africa as part of the ongoing health aid (alongside education aid) Cuba has been exporting for half a century.
One of the central natural wonders of Russia, Lake Baikal, has recently been a source of troubling news. Every week, volunteers remove tons of garbage from the coast of the deepest fresh water lake on our planet, while officials try to handle the consequences of the closure of a pulp and paper mill. Now it is environmentalists who sound the alarm
Not surprisingly, there is the same basic alphabet common to all, from the amoebae to viruses, from fish to birds, from animals to humans, we are all made up of 20 amino acids and four nucleic acids (adenine, guanine, thymine and cytosine); it is only a difference of combination of syllables that constitute the alphabet.
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
