Another global warming catastrophe: the Sahara Desert is getting greener [Greenland too]
Post Date: 2015-06-06 10:11:12 by Tooconservative
13 Comments
This story is actually quite fascinating and it obviously has something to do with changes in the climate, but just how to explain it all remains a subject of contention. You would think that increasing temperatures would make things worse in the deserts of the world, but in a rather counterintuitive instance of planet watching, it appears that the Sahara desert may actually be shrinking. A few thousand years ago, a mighty river flowed through the Sahara across what is today Sudan. The Wadi Howar—now just a dried-out riverbed for most of the year—sustained not just fish, crocodiles, and hippopotamuses, but also agriculture and human settlement. As late as 1,000 B.C., a powerful ...

If a new Guinness World Record is any indication, hoverboards could be the next extreme sport.The Guinness organization says Canadian inventor Catalin Alexandru Duru has broken the world record for longest hoverboard flight with a flight of 275.9 meters (905 feet and 2 inches) -- and that was out over a lake.Guinness World Records posted a video of the flight to the organization's YouTube page on Friday saying it was achieved on August 25, 2014. In the clip, you can see Catalin's quadcopterlike hoverboard flying about 16 feet off the ground as he travels across the water on Quebec's Lake Ouareau.

More Countries Caught Manipulating Their Climate Data

Weather agencies in Australia, Paraguay and Switzerland may be manipulating temperature data to create a sharper warming trend than is present in the raw data — a practice that has come under scrutiny in recent months. Most recently, Dr. H. Sterling Burnett with the Heartland Institute detailed how the Swiss Meteorological Service adjusted its climate data “to show greater warming than actually measured by its temperature instruments.” In his latest article, Sterling wrote that Switzerland’s weather bureau adjusted its raw temperature data so that “the temperatures reported were consistently higher than those actually recorded.” For example, the cities of Sion ...

GOP Works to Defund Studies So They Can Deny Climate Change

Rather than address or even face the impending issues surrounding climate change, the GOP has chosen instead to stick their fingers in their ears. Not only do they want to simply ignore the problem, but they are trying to make it difficult for the rest of us to even know that it exists.Last week, the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee, headed by Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas), approved a bill that would slash at least $300 million from NASA's Earth-science budget. As Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-Texas) pointed out, "Earth science, of course, includes climate science." Rep. Smith claims that the White House's NASA budget request favored the ...

Global CO2 levels hit record high

Not only is the global concentration of the greenhouse gas the highest since the beginning of modern records, it's also rising incredibly fast, according to a US government angency. The world has reached a daunting climate milestone: the global concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2), one of the most prevalent greenhouse gases, has surpassed 400 parts per million (ppm). In March 2015, the global monthly average CO2 concentration reached 400.83 ppm, the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced. That is the first month in modern records with a global concentration of more than 400 ppm. "It's both disturbing and daunting," said Pieter Tans, chief ...

Even Elon Musk's SolarCity, the biggest supplier in the U.S., isn't ready to install Tesla's home battery for daily users Tesla Chief Executive Elon Musk introduced a new family of batteries designed to stretch the solar-power revolution into its next phase. There's just one problem: Tesla's new battery doesn't work well with rooftop solar—at least not yet. Even Solar City, the supplier led by Musk, isn't ready to offer Tesla's battery for daily use. The new Tesla Powerwall home batteries come in two sizes—seven and 10 kilowatt hours (kWh)—but the differences extend beyond capacity to the chemistry of the batteries. The 7kWh version is made ...

Rare African plant signals diamonds beneath the soil

There’s diamond under them thar plants. A geologist has discovered a thorny, palmlike plant in Liberia that seems to grow only on top of kimberlite pipes—columns of volcanic rock hundreds of meters across that extend deep into Earth, left by ancient eruptions that exhumed diamonds from the mantle. If the plant is as choosy as it seems to be, diamond hunters in West Africa will have a simple, powerful way of finding diamond-rich deposits. Prospectors are going to “jump on it like crazy,” says Steven Shirey, a geologist specializing in diamond research at the Carnegie Institution for Science in Washington, D.C.

Forbes: Why Tesla's Powerwall Is Just Another Toy For Rich Green People

All the breathless coverage of Elon Musk’s Powerwall battery brouhaha last night is missing the most important thing: a sober discussion of real-world costs. So let’s take a look at the costs and see if this world-shaking, game-changing innovation really makes any sense. Musk said Tesla’s 7 kwh capacity battery would cost $3,000, while the 10 kwh capacity one would be $3,500. (That doesn’t include the cost of a DC-AC inverter – about $4,000 $2,000– plus professional installation.) Elon "Enron" Musk introduces his latest tax credit scam The implication is that a 10 kwh system could supply 1,000 watts of current to your home for 10 hours. That’s ...

Now, imagine for a moment a device that I could carry in my backpack that would be smaller than my umbrella which could power my cell phone for a week. No, it’s not a battery.

Study: Poor children have smaller brains than wealthy peers

Thinkstock New research shows that low-income kids may be lagging behind their peers because a crucial part of their brains is underdeveloped. Researchers from MIT’s McGovern Institute for Brain Research compared the brains of affluent 12- and 13-year-olds to the brains of less affluent peers. They found that one particular area of the brain — the neocortex, which plays a key role in memory and learning ability — is thinner in children from lower-income households. This is an important part of the brain for young students, who are often tested based on their ability to recall large chunks of information. Children who had a thinner neocortex performed poorly on standardized ...

Toyota is taking on the hydrogen fuel-cell car haters — including Elon Musk Elon Musk doesn't have a high opinion of the hydrogen-fuel-cell-powered car. Back in 2013, in Germany, he infamously called the technology "so bullshit." He's also referred to fuel-cells as "fool cells." Toyota, on the other hand, is big on fuel-cells and hydrogen. The automaker is bringing a new vehicle, the Mirai, to market later this year, after revealing the hydrogen-powered 4-door in late 2014. The challenge for Toyota isn't simply to introduce the whole idea of running a car on hydrogen, something that's unfamiliar due to the very small number of fuel-cell electric ...

AMSTERDAM—Insecure about your height? You may want to avoid this tiny country by the North Sea, whose population has gained an impressive 20 centimeters in the past 150 years and is now officially the tallest on the planet. Scientists chalk up most of that increase to rising wealth, a rich diet, and good health care, but a new study suggests something else is going on as well: The Dutch growth spurt may be an example of human evolution in action. The study, published online today in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B, shows that tall Dutch men on average have more children than their shorter counterparts, and that more of their children survive. That suggests genes that help make ...

“Hydgas is a cooktop that produces its own gas. It uses water as fuel and uses electricity to convert it to hydrogen and oxygen and uses that to cook food. It produces gas as needed, so there is no storage of any gases in Hydgas, which makes it completely safe compared to LPG. It can also be integrated with solar power,” says a proud Riswin M.H., Co-founder and head of operations at Reinwo Labs. Reinwo Labs is a 2014 startup, founded by a team of recent college graduates, focused on discovering and creating clean energy solutions. Hydgas is their flagship product.
