Two Greenland Glaciers Lose Enough Ice to Fill Lake Erie Two Greenland Glaciers Lose Enough Ice to Fill Lake Erie
[ May 25, 2011 - Share ]
ScienceDaily (May 24, 2011) — A new study aimed at refining the way scientists measure ice loss in Greenland is providing a "high-definition picture" of climate-caused changes on the island. And the picture isn't pretty. In the last decade, two of the largest three glaciers draining that frozen landscape have lost enough ice that, if melted, could have filled Lake Erie
Selling Electric Vehicles - Easy. Charging Options - Very Tricky Selling Electric Vehicles - Easy. Charging Options - Very Tricky
[ May 25, 2011 - Share ]
May 19, 2011 - A new survey from Accenture finds that the majority of consumers are interested in buying plug-in electric vehicles (PEV). But how consumers charge those vehicles is a complicated issue, with charging infrastructure and cost being top concerns
Drought in China significantly cuts hydroelectric output Drought in China significantly cuts hydroelectric output
[ May 25, 2011 - Share ]

Wood as Fuel Wood as Fuel
[ May 25, 2011 - Share ]
Wood fuel is wood used as fuel. The burning of wood is currently the largest use of energy derived from a solid fuel biomass. Wood fuel can be used for cooking and heating, and occasionally for fueling steam engines and steam turbines that generate electricity. The use of wood as a fuel source for heating is as old as civilization itself. Historically, it was limited in use only by the distribution of technology required to make a spark

A new NASA and university study of the March 11, 2011, Japan earthquake that included researchers from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif., provides the most comprehensive look to date at how Earth moved that day, unleashing widespread destruction and a devastating tsunami. The study of the magnitude 9.0 Tohoku-Oki quake, led by researchers at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, and published online in the May 19 issue of Science Express, details the first large set of observational data from this rare megathrust earthquake event
Scientists move closer to predicting volcano hazard Scientists move closer to predicting volcano hazard
[ May 18, 2011 - Share ]
UK and Russian scientists say they are a step closer to predicting how dangerous a volcano is after developing a method that lets them figure out how individual volcanoes are 'plumbed'. The new approach means researchers need only analyse a single chunk of rock from a volcano to work out how big and deep its magma chamber is.
Heart Risk and Injury Heart Risk and Injury
[ May 18, 2011 - Share ]
Nitric Oxide, a gas that occurs naturally in the body, may do more than any prescription drug to prevent heart attack and stroke. Nitric Oxide is essential for healthy circulation. It helps dilate blood vessels, prevent blood clots and regulate blood pressure. It also helps inhibit the accumulation of dangerous arterial plaque. Nitric Oxide helps prevent heart disease and stroke in the following ways: blood vessels expansion and protecting the blood vessels smooth muscle tissue from harmful constriction
Ancient Hawaiian Farms Ancient Hawaiian Farms
[ May 18, 2011 - Share ]
The original settlers of Polynesia migrated through South-East Asia and Indonesia across Melanesia, before settling the Polynesian islands beginning in 1000 BC. Hawaii was one of the last island groups to be settled. Archaeological evidence indicates the first Polynesians arrived in Hawaii from the Marquesas between 500 and 700 AD. Hawaii has often been thought of as an earthly paradise. Still people must live and eat. A pattern of earthen berms, spread across a northern peninsula of the big island of Hawaii, is providing archeologists with clues to exactly how residents farmed in paradise long before Europeans arrived at the islands
The Brewing Organic Beer Market The Brewing Organic Beer Market
[ May 18, 2011 - Share ]
America's craft beer market has grown rapidly in recent years, seemingly outpaced only by its niche organic segment, thanks in part to growing consumer fears about genetically modified foods. While a few of the largest regional breweries currently enjoy widespread distribution, craft brewing remains fundamentally an industry devoted to its local followers, and the results are undeniable

Brazil's forest code debate may determine fate of the Amazon rainforest Brazil's forest code debate may determine fate of the Amazon rainforest
[ May 9, 2011 - Share ]
Brazil's forest code may be about to get an overhaul. The federal code, which presently requires landowners in the Amazon to keep 80 percent of their land forest (20-35% in the cerrado), is widely flouted, but has been used in recent years as a lever by the government to go after deforesters. For example, the forest code served as the basis for the "blacklists" which restricted funds for municipalities where deforestation has been particularly high. To get off the blacklist, and thereby regain access to finance and markets, a municipality must demonstrate its landowners are in compliance with environmental laws
