Dogs Know When You’re Acting Intentionally, Researchers Find

Dogs can tell the difference between deliberate actions—and mistakes, say scientists. It adds growing evidence to the idea that man’s best friend knows just how we are feeling. First author Dr Britta Schunemann said, “The dogs in our study clearly behaved differently depending on whether the actions of a human experimenter were intentional or unintentional.” Dogs […]

When Walked On, These Wooden Floors Harvest Enough Energy to Turn On a Lightbulb

Researchers from Switzerland are tapping into an unexpected energy source right under our feet: wooden floorings. Their nanogenerator enables wood to generate energy from our footfalls. They also improved the wood used in the their nanogenerator with a combination of a silicone coating and embedded nanocrystals, resulting in a device that was 80 times more […]

What caused an extreme global warming event that lasted for around 150 thousand years? – Tech Explorist

Past studies have suggested that the rise in CO2 emissions from volcanic activity triggered rapid climate change. However, the trigger for the event is less clear. Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM), also called Initial Eocene Thermal Maximum (IETM), is an extreme…

If You Have Someone to Talk to, it Could Stave Off Alzheimer’s, Researchers Find

Supportive social interactions in adulthood are important for your ability to stave off cognitive decline, a new study finds. Researchers observed that simply having someone available most or all of the time whom you can count on to listen to you when you need to talk is associated with greater cognitive resilience—a measure of your […]

In saving the ozone layer, we avoided even more intense global warming – Mongabay.com

The Montreal Protocol, a 1987 agreement to stop using ozone-depleting chemicals, also helped combat climate change in more ways than one, a study published in Nature found. The group of synthetic gases called chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) that deplete atmospheric ozone are…

How the world already prevented far worse warming this century – MIT Technology Review

But the virtues of the agreement, ultimately ratified by every country, are more widespread than its impact on the ozone hole. Many of those chemicals are also powerful greenhouse gases. So as a major side benefit, their reduction over the…

Global warming begets more warming, new paleoclimate study finds – YubaNet

advertisement It is increasingly clear that the prolonged drought conditions, record-breaking heat, sustained wildfires, and frequent, more extreme storms experienced in recent years are a direct result of rising global temperatures brought on by humans’ addition of carbon dioxide to…
