Tech Weapons We Need To Combat Global Warming – TechNewsWorld

Whenever a war like Afghanistan ends, a financial problem drives a country into the next war. The companies that build the weapons take a massive revenue hit because a country at peace doesn’t consume much ordinance. But this time, thanks…

Thanks to climate change, supply chain disruptions are poised to be the new normal – Salon

Dr. Thomas Goldsby, a professor of supply chain management at the University of Tennessee — Knoxville’s Haslam College of Business, assigns his undergraduate student a “routine exercise” that frequently proves revelatory. Its purpose is to illustrate the complexity of the various trade…

Eighteen Hundred And Starve To Death, Or The Year Without A Summer

Analysing volcanoes to predict their awakening

(Université de Genève) A team led by UNIGE has reviewed the literature on the internal and external mechanisms that lead to a volcanic eruption. Analyzing the thermo-mechanics of deep volcanic processes and magma propagation to the surface, together with magma chemistry, the geologists determined that most of the magma rising from depth actually does not cause a volcanic eruption. They also show that older volcanoes tend to produce less frequent, but larger and more dangerous eruptions.

Nigerian Homes Built From Thousands of Plastic Bottles –12x Stronger Than Brick And Earthquake Strong
