Kenya Bans Imports of GM Food Kenya Bans Imports of GM Food
[ Dec 2, 2012 - Share ]
Scientists fear that Kenya's recent banning of the import of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) may be a significant blow to progress on biotechnology research and development in the country
New Climate Model Reveals  Discernible Human Influence New Climate Model Reveals Discernible Human Influence
[ Dec 2, 2012 - Share ]
The Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) is a federally funded research and development center located in Livermore, California. Their mission, in part, is to respond with vision, quality, integrity, and technical excellence to scientific issues of national importance. One such issue, which is tough to dispute, is the changing climate. The top-rate researchers at LLNL created a new climate model by comparing 20 different computer models to satellite observations. They found that tropospheric and stratospheric temperature changes are clearly related to human activities
Study finds multiple pollutants in women  can be passed on to babies Study finds multiple pollutants in women can be passed on to babies

Our bodies accumulate toxins and chemicals throughout our lifetime. From what we eat, to what we breath, environmental toxins like lead, mercury and PCBs that do not easily break down can be stored in our own fatty tissues. While it is unsure whether the co-exposure of these chemicals is more harmful that to each one separately, a new study shows that several risk factors are associated with a higher chance of median blood levels for these contaminants
Mercury Water Mercury Water
[ Dec 2, 2012 - Share ]
Mercury is the innermost planet in the Solar System. It is right next door to the very hot sun. Water boils and evaporates very easily so how much water could possible be on this very hot planet? Instruments aboard NASA's MErcury Surface, Space ENvironment, GEochemistry, and Ranging (MESSENGER) spacecraft studying the planet Mercury have provided compelling support for the long-held hypothesis the planet harbors abundant water ice and other frozen volatile materials within its permanently shadowed polar craters
Electronic Waste - the Asia-Pacific Problem Electronic Waste - the Asia-Pacific Problem
[ Dec 2, 2012 - Share ]
Instead of limiting imports of electronic waste, the Asia—Pacific region should set up a robust recycling system, says Crispin Maslog
Just how far can a polar bear swim Just how far can a polar bear swim
[ May 4, 2012 - Share ]
Polar bears (Ursus maritimus) are capable of swimming incredible distances, according to a new study published in Zoology, which recorded polar bears regularly swimming over 30 miles (48 kilometers) and, in one case, as far as 220 miles (354 kilometers). The researchers believe the ability of polar bears to tackle such long-distance swims may help them survive as seasonal sea ice vanishes due to climate change
Stream Temperatures Don't Parallel Warming Climate Trend Stream Temperatures Don't Parallel Warming Climate Trend
[ May 4, 2012 - Share ]
A new analysis of streams in the western United States with long-term monitoring programs has found that despite a general increase in air temperatures over the past several decades, streams are not necessarily warming at the same rate
Greenland's Ice Melting Overestimated Greenland's Ice Melting Overestimated
[ May 4, 2012 - Share ]
A new study has some reassuring news about how fast Greenland's glaciers are melting away
Study: Natural Gas Development Linked to Wildlife Habitat Loss Study: Natural Gas Development Linked to Wildlife Habitat Loss
[ May 4, 2012 - Share ]
A study by the Wildlife Conservation Society documents that intense development of the two largest natural gas fields in the continental U.S. are driving away some wildlife from their traditional wintering grounds
The Strange Conservative Brain: 3 Reasons Republicans Refuse to Accept Reality About Global Warming |  | AlterNet The Strange Conservative Brain: 3 Reasons Republicans Refuse to Accept Reality About Global Warming | | AlterNet
[ Mar 28, 2012 - Share ]
Even many well-educated Republicans deny global warming. What's going on here?
Modest Chocolate Consumption to Lose Weight Modest Chocolate Consumption to Lose Weight
[ Mar 28, 2012 - Share ]
For all the Augustus Gloops in the world, this article is not for you. But for those who eat little bits of chocolate every day in moderation, there is news to celebrate. A new study from the University of California (UC) San Diego has found that adults who regularly eat chocolate are thinner than those who don't. However, one must make the distinction between bits of chocolate and munching on candy bars all day. High consumption of chocolate-rich foods (i.e. cake, cookies, chocolate bars) will inevitably lead to obesity and related health effects. Dark chocolate was found to be the best
The Amazing B12 in Action The Amazing B12 in Action
[ Mar 28, 2012 - Share ]
Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin with a key role in the normal functioning of the brain and nervous system, and for the formation of blood. It is one of the eight B vitamins. It is normally involved in the metabolism of every cell of the human body, especially affecting DNA synthesis and regulation, but also fatty acid synthesis and energy production. It is the largest and most structurally complicated vitamin
Economic Impacts of Climate Change may be huge Economic Impacts of Climate Change may be huge
[ Mar 28, 2012 - Share ]
Climate change could reduce the economic value of the services the oceans provide to mankind by almost US$2 trillion a year by 2100, according to a study presented at the Planet Under Pressure conference this week (26—29 March).
Deflecting Asteroids Deflecting Asteroids
[ Mar 28, 2012 - Share ]
There is a lot of space junk hanging in orbit. Sooner or later there is also the threat of some space rock plummeting to the Earth. Pioneering engineers at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow are developing an innovative technique based on lasers that could radically change asteroid deflection technology. The research has unearthed the possibility of using a swarm of relatively small satellites flying in formation and cooperatively firing solar-powered lasers onto an asteroid — this would overcome the difficulties associated with current methods that are focused on large unwieldy spacecraft
Fighting Mosquitoes  the Green Way Fighting Mosquitoes the Green Way
[ Mar 28, 2012 - Share ]
The last way you want to spend your hard-earned vacation is swatting away mosquitoes and then scratching away at the bites. So it hardly seems tragic when the resort starts spraying the bloodsuckers
