If your allergies are more severe, more expensive and last longer, blame climate change – USA TODAY

Dr. Neelu Tummala “Why are my allergies lasting longer than they used to?” The first time a patient asked this, I researched potential reasons. The second time, I was prepared with the answer.  And now, knowing what is coming, I preempt…

Shade-grown coffee could help save birds, if only people knew about it

(Cornell University) The message about the bird-conservation benefits of shade-grown coffee may not be getting through to the people most likely to respond–birdwatchers. A team of researchers from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and Virginia Tech surveyed birdwatchers to learn if they drank shade-grown coffee and, if not, why not.

Energy switching decisions could widen social inequalities

(University of Leeds) New energy tariffs designed for a low carbon future could leave people on bad deals even worse off. The tariffs could benefit all kinds of customers, but many people are unlikely to choose them. Those likely to adopt them first are younger, with higher incomes and higher education.

Assessing the aggregate and spatial economic impact of global warming | VOX, CEPR Policy Portal – voxeu.org

The effects of climate change are heterogenous across space. While some regions will be significantly negatively impacted, others may benefit from warmer temperatures. This column uses an integrated assessment model with rich spatial data that looks at interactions between regions…

NASA ERB Satellite Measurements Don’t Support Global Warming Claims

NASA Earth Radiation Budget (ERB) measurements from satellite data don’t support global warming claims. Analyst blogger Zoe Phin downloaded and analyzed 10 gigabytes of NASA instrumental data on the earth’s radiation budget (ERB) fully covering the years 2003 to 2019…

Mechanistic understanding of oxygen-redox processes in lithium-rich battery cathodes

(The Faraday Institution) Scientists based at the University of Oxford as part of the Faraday Institution CATMAT project researching next-generation cathode materials have made a significant advance in understanding oxygen-redox processes involved in lithium-rich cathode materials. The paper, published in Nature Energy, proposes strategies that offer potential routes to increase the energy density of lithium-ion batteries.

Scientists Use Novel Ink With Calcium to 3D-Print ‘Bone’ With Living Cells

3D printers may one day become a permanent fixture of operating rooms, now that Australian scientists showed they could print bone-like structures containing living cells. Scientists from UNSW Sydney have developed a ceramic-based ink that may allow surgeons in the future to 3D-print bone parts complete with living cells that could be used to repair […]
