Researchers are testing whether a sesame seed-sized wasp can control a pest that could seriously damage California crops including wine, walnuts, and avocados.
(Chinese Academy of Sciences Headquarters) A new study led by Prof. JIN Zhangdong from the Institute of Earth Environment (IEE) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences provided a new insight on the interplay between climate and tectonics from a sediment record in the Zipingpu Reservoir around the 2008 Wenchuan earthquake.
Presidential candidate Joe Biden recently announced his “Plan for a Clean Energy Revolution and Environmental Justice.” While it might be viewed as a Green New Deal Lite, the plan would inflict enormous economic, environmental and societal pain on most of…
Xifeng Wu, one of the premier cancer researchers in the world, has been hounded out of the US by the FBI. Any resemblance to the panic that saw tens of thousands interned after Pearl Harbor is real.
(Institute of Atmospheric Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences) A better understanding of terrestrial flux dynamics will come from elucidating the integrated effects of climate and vegetation constraints on gross primary productivity, ecosystem respiration, and net ecosystem productivity.
(Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology) An international collaboration led by scientists at Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology (TUAT),Japan, has developed a two-step method to more efficiently break down carbohydrates into their single sugar components, a critical process in producing green fuel.
Vocal activists increasingly drive Democrat Party positions across the public policy spectrum. Print, television, social and click-bait media generally support them, while permitting little debate on liberal proposals or their potential ramifications. Even semi-moderate Joe Biden has been pressured into…
(Institute of Atmospheric Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences) The use of prevalent technologies and crowdsourced data may benefit weather forecasting and atmospheric research. The data from these new ‘sensors’ could be assimilated into high-resolution numerical prediction models, and thus may lead to improvements in forecasting capabilities. The contribution to public health and safety as a result could potentially be of significant value.
