Comet C/2020 F3 (NEOWISE) is basically a binocular object, although some experienced observers with pristine skies are reporting they can see it with the eye alone. This post has information and charts that will help you see the comet.

The United People Of Climate Investing

What if every single climate striker piled all their cash and put it somewhere where they actually can see it has an impact, wouldn’t that be an effective way to reduce global emissions? And the good news is, you don’t need to invest in some green-washed index fund, there are plenty of “actively” managed alternative funds. 

World’s Biggest Liquid Air Battery – ‘The Climate Emission Killer’ – is Now Under Construction in England

One of the biggest challenges with widespread implementation of renewable energy is storage—but now in England, a trailblazing company is developing the world’s first liquid-air battery storage facility for renewable energy. And the zero-emission concept costs half as much to produce as lithium-ion batteries. Capable of powering 200,000 homes for a whole day and storing […]

Oil forecasting technique adapted for spreadsheets may cut shale operator costs

Porous rock containing oil and natural gas are buried so deep inside the earth that shale operators rely on complex models of the underground environment to estimate fossil fuel recovery. These simulations are notoriously complex, requiring highly-skilled operators to run them. These factors indirectly impact the cost of shale oil production and ultimately, how much consumers pay for their fuel.
