The researchers managed to use the little springs to cleanse water samples of microplastics over the course of just eight hours.
The post Scientists Use Tiny Spring Magnets to Harmlessly Dissolve Microplastics in Water appeared first on Good News Network.
(University of Chicago Press Journals) In ‘Invisible Designers: Brain Evolution Through the Lens of Parasite Manipulation,’ published in the September 2019 issue of The Quarterly Review of Biology, Marco Del Giudice explores an overlooked aspect of the relationship between parasites and their hosts by systematically discussing the ways in which parasitic behavior manipulation may encourage the evolution of mechanisms in the host’s nervous and endocrine systems.
The deal struck between four automakers and California last month to improve fuel economy could significantly reduce transportation emissions, blunting the climate consequences of President Trump’s rollback of clean car standards.
Maximizing uptake of market-based insurance among communities in fire-prone areas will be vital to prevent future destruction.
(Norwegian University of Science and Technology) Climate change is the big wild card when it comes to the survival of many Arctic species. A new study shows that climate change will be both good and bad for Svalbard barnacle goose populations — although the balance may tip depending upon the severity of future temperature increases, and how other species react.
(Fundação de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de São Paulo) Mountain range uplift, river formation and other events that occurred 30 million years ago explain the emergence of new species of the arachnid in the biome’s southernmost portion, according to a Brazilian study.
Toxoplasma gondii is a microbial parasite that infects humans and but needs cats to complete its full life cycle. New research shows why: the sexual phase of the parasite’s life cycle requires linoleic acid, a nutrient/lipid found at uniquely high levels in the felines, because cats lack a key enzyme for breaking it down.
“Hottest month in human history” has a certain ring to it. But some scientists say that ring isn’t true. The liberal media, always on the lookout for ways to demand action on climate change, latched on to a recent National…
There aren’t any climate deniers anymore. At this point, they are all climate arsonists and nihilists.
Everybody knows that change is happening, but thanks to the fossil fuel economy, we are all having such a good time.
