American Scientists Make Great Leap in Battery Technology American Scientists Make Great Leap in Battery Technology
[ Feb 29, 2012 - Share ]
One of the primary concerns with owning an electric vehicle is cost of the battery, the range it offers, and the time it takes to recharge. Those concerns will be significantly lessoned with the development of a new lithium-ion battery. Designed by scientists at Envia Systems, a US-based company, the new battery has roughly twice the energy density of existing rechargeable batteries. Such an innovation could greatly increase the range of electric cars as well as cut the price of the battery packs in half
Arctic Sea Ice Decline May Be Driving Snowy Winters Seen in Recent Years in N. Hemisphere Arctic Sea Ice Decline May Be Driving Snowy Winters Seen in Recent Years in N. Hemisphere
[ Feb 29, 2012 - Share ]
A new study led by the Georgia Institute of Technology provides further evidence of a relationship between melting ice in the Arctic regions and widespread cold outbreaks in the Northern Hemisphere. The study's findings could be used to improve seasonal forecasting of snow and temperature anomalies across northern continents
Organic Aerosols Organic Aerosols

An aerosol is a colloid suspension of fine solid particles or liquid droplets in a gas. Examples are clouds, and air pollution such as smog and smoke In a suburb of smoggy Los Angeles, University of California experts are providing a likely answer to a sticky scientific problem. A growing body of research has shown that computer models used by federal regulators for decades significantly underestimate the quantity of organic aerosols, a major component of dangerous smog and the largest unknown in climate-change calculations
Ancient Elephants Followed the (Female) Leader Ancient Elephants Followed the (Female) Leader
[ Feb 23, 2012 - Share ]
When a herd of prehistoric elephants walked through mud in the Arabian Desert about 7 million years ago, its members unwittingly left their footprints—and clues about their social lives—behind. Those prints now reveal how the herd behaved: Just like modern elephants, mature males meandered on their own while the rest of the herd apparently followed a female leader
What Happens in the Aurora What Happens in the Aurora
[ Feb 23, 2012 - Share ]
An aurora is a natural light display in the sky particularly in the high latitude (Arctic and Antarctic) regions, caused by the collision of energetic charged particles with atoms in the high altitude atmosphere. The charged particles originate in the magnetosphere and solar wind and, on Earth, are directed by the Earth's magnetic field into the atmosphere
Earth's Clouds Are Getting Lower  NASA Satellite Finds Earth's Clouds Are Getting Lower NASA Satellite Finds
[ Feb 23, 2012 - Share ]
ScienceDaily (Feb. 22, 2012) — Earth's clouds got a little lower -- about one percent on average -- during the first decade of this century, finds a new NASA-funded university study based on NASA satellite data. The results have potential implications for future global climate
Low Levels of Fallout from Fukushima Release Low Levels of Fallout from Fukushima Release
[ Feb 23, 2012 - Share ]
There is always concern when something radioactive is released as to what its downwind effects might be. Certainly there are effects at the actual site but thousands of miles away? Fallout from the 2011 Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power facility in Japan was measured in minimal amounts in precipitation in the United States in about 20 percent of 167 sites sampled in a nationwide study released today

Are Nuisance Jellyfish Really Taking Over the World's Oceans Are Nuisance Jellyfish Really Taking Over the World's Oceans
[ Feb 6, 2012 - Share ]
ScienceDaily (Feb. 1, 2012) — In recent years, media reports of jellyfish blooms and some scientific publications have fueled the idea that jellyfish and other gelatinous floating creatures are becoming more common and may dominate the seas in coming decades. The growing impacts of humans on the oceans, including overfishing and climate change, have been suggested as possible causes of this apparently alarming trend
Nuclear Power - environmental advantages Nuclear Power - environmental advantages
[ Feb 6, 2012 - Share ]
Renewable energy and nuclear power increasingly factor into the evolving American energy equation to replace polluting coal. Even some environmentalists acknowledge that nuclear is a viable emissions-free option to dirty coal while renewable-energy technologies continue to advance
Chicago-Based Eco-Friendly Dentist Doubles Down on Green Chicago-Based Eco-Friendly Dentist Doubles Down on Green
[ Feb 6, 2012 - Share ]
Almost exactly five years ago, I took at look at Transcendentist, a Berkeley based green dentistry office that combined environmental responsibility with a very different approach to patient care. Rather than the typical clinical approach, the founders of Transcendentist created a spa-like atmosphere complete with foot massages. Even then, the idea was taking off: nothing like a little calm to take the edge off of that fear of the dentist thing
Japan extends allowed operating life of nuclear reactors Japan extends allowed operating life of nuclear reactors
[ Jan 18, 2012 - Share ]
Japan will allow nuclear reactors to operate for up to 60 years in revised regulations on power plant operators even as it looks to shift gradually away from atomic power in the wake of the Fukushima disaster
NASA GISS Identifies 14 Air Pollution Control Measures to Slow Global Warming  Improve Health and Increase Crop Yields NASA GISS Identifies 14 Air Pollution Control Measures to Slow Global Warming Improve Health and Increase Crop Yields
[ Jan 18, 2012 - Share ]
Fourteen air pollution control measures, if implemented today, could not only slow the pace of global warming, according to an intensive study by NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS), but also improve health and boost agricultural productivity. All regions of the world would benefit as a result, NASA found, but the biggest health and agricultural gains would be realized in Asia and the Middle East as a result of greenhouse (GHG) emissions reductions
