This is the sort of thing that if she can’t explain can torpedo her campaign. I heard her on a local radio station this morning admitting she was not and has never been licensed in Massachusetts, but also said she had not been practicing law with no further explanation.
I’ve long been of the opinion we can’t rely on carbon emission reduction alone. If by some miracle we manage to get our act together in the US we still have no control over the other 6.7 billion people on the planet. We need to explore more aggressive solutions like this.
IF YOU want to help stop climate change, try tipping some iron into the sea. For years, this geoengineering idea has been considered a busted flush, but new results suggest it really can work.
Tiny floating algae called phytoplankton pull carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere. When they die, the plankton sink to the seabed, taking the carbon with them. Over thousands of years, this strips CO2 from the air, lowering temperatures.
But many ocean regions are short of iron, which plankton need to grow, so the process does not occur. Adding iron should stimulate plankton growth in these areas.
Further proof that science is cool. A little mixing of disciplines produces impressive results.
Researchers at the University of Florida (UF) have developed a nanoparticle that has shown 100 percent effectiveness in eradicating the hepatitis C virus in laboratory testing.
The nanoparticle, dubbed a nanozyme, consists of a backbone made from gold nanoparticles and a surface with two biological components. One biological component is an enzyme that attacks and destroys the mRNA, which provides the recipe for duplicating the protein that causes the disease. The other biological part is the navigator, if you will. It is a DNA oligonucleotide that identifies the disease-related protein and sends the enzyme on course to destroy it.
I remember hearing about this a few years back and thinking it would be cool if it actually led to changes to our understanding of gravity and modifications to relativity. Turns out it is far more mundane than that.
Just a little something everyone should look at before hitting that submit button…
“Critics are calling for the resignation of a U.N. investigator who supports Sept. 11 conspiracy theories and thinks the U.S. government may have planned the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.”
