WASHINGTON — Officials at the Group of 20 summit meeting released a closing statement on Sunday that served as perhaps the Trump administration’s final reminder of the wide gulf between the United States and its allies on handling global threats…

New Hand-Held Prototype is Being Developed for Home-Based Cancer Screening Kit

Scientists from two universities in Ontario, Canada reported progress on their efforts to release the world’s first hand-held home test kit designed to screen for cancer. A home-based screening kit for different kinds of cancers would be game-changing in the quest for more proactive health monitoring. To this end, researchers from McMaster and Brock universities […]

U.S.-European mission launches to monitor the world’s oceans

The Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich satellite will extend a nearly 30-year continuous dataset on sea level collected by an ongoing collaboration of U.S. and European satellites while enhancing weather forecasts and providing detailed information on large-scale ocean currents to support ship navigation near coastlines.

Could we ever pull enough carbon out of the atmosphere to stop climate change? – Livescience.com

Nature has equipped Earth with several giant “sponges,” or carbon sinks, that can help humans battle climate change. These natural sponges, as well as human-made ones, can sop up carbon, effectively removing it from the atmosphere.  But what does this…

Cloud Seeding: Does It Prevent Global Warming or Worsens It? – Science Times

Cloud seeding has been used in many countries to enhance precipitation, dissipate fog, and modify hurricanes. It can be done by humans and can also occur naturally. But this method is controversial for many reasons. Clouds protect the planet by reflecting…

NASA Uses Supercomputers and AI to Count Earth’s Trees From Space For the First Time

To get a sense of how much carbon the Earth can store, and how it changes over time, scientists would need to count a bewildering number of trees, and track their growth over time. Incredibly, the folks at NASA are now using supercomputers to do precisely that—via top-down imaging from space. Scientists from NASA’s Goddard […]
