Next month is the thirtieth anniversary of the most entertaining and damning chapter in Al Gore’s career. By the mid-nineteenth century, our knowledge of atmospheric chemistry was sufficiently advanced for a few sharp minds to ponder whether an increase in…
(University of British Columbia Okanagan campus) Astronomers have identified more than 4,000, and counting, confirmed exoplanets — planets orbiting stars other than the sun — but only a fraction have the potential to sustain life.Now, new research from UBC’s Okanagan campus is using the geology of early planet formation to help identify those that may be capable of supporting life.
New Smart Farming Robot Unveiled That âSmokesâ Weeds With High-Powered Lasers For Healthy Weeding
Weeds compete for soil nutrients, water, space, and sunlight with the crops farmers grow to help feed people. Now a third-generation weeding robot, armed with lasers and powered by AI, offers the ultimate labor-saving deviceâwhile also eliminating the need for chemical herbicides. The Autonomous Weeder by Carbon Robotics can eliminate 100,000 weeds per hour, and […]
Sky News host Andrew Bolt says there is news today which doesn’t fit the script of the “global warming scare” as evidence shows the fear may be “wildly exaggerated”. “How often have disaster junkies in the media predicted all kinds…
Unilever has partnered with LanzaTech and India Glycols to produce a laundry soap made from industrial carbon emissions—instead of from fossil-fuels. The innovative shift in production utilizes biotechnologies and a newly configured supply chain between the three partners, who are working together for the first time. Typically derived from fossil fuels, surfactants are a critical […]

TORONTO — While the Arctic is growing greener with climate change, scientists warn that it is not greening fast enough to absorb very much carbon dioxide. According to new research from scientists at Boston University and University of California Irvine…
The increasing proliferation of plant life in the Arctic may not be a massive difference-maker in the battle against global warming, new research reveals. Image Credit: Vladimir Melnik/Shutterstock.com The image of the Arctic as a frozen wasteland could soon be a thing…
Microbiologists have found a way to use bacteria to trap microplastics, removing them from the environment and making them easier to recycle. The new technique, developed by scientists at Hong Kong Polytechnic University, uses bacterial biofilmsâa sticky substance created by micro-organismsâto trap microplastic particles. The biofilm is then processed and dispersed, releasing the microplastic particles […]
