About half of the light that travels to Earth's atmosphere passes through the air and clouds before hitting its surface, where it then becomes absorbed and reflected upward in the form of IR heat. About 90% of radiated heat becomes absorbed by greenhouse gases, then radiated back to the surface in an unending cycle know ...
A team from the University of California, Berkley, have developed a new method to make plastics truly compostable. The modified plastic breaks down in less time using just heat and water. (Photo from University of California)   A little shining hope on this Earth Day. Is it just me, or are the sides of roads these days packed with plastic bottles and such?

This airplane was designed using the MagicDNA software and strands of DNA, coming in at 1000-times smaller than the width of a human hair. (Image credit: Ohio State University)   Scientists from Ohio State University have developed a method to design DNA robots in a matter of minutes instead of days. The breakthrough will allow the creation of tiny robots and other nanoscale devices that could deliver medicines and detect deadly pathogens from inside the body, and even be used to build inc ...
