In pursuit of the ambitious goal of reaching net-zero emissions, nations worldwide must expand their use of clean energy sources. In the case of solar energy, this change may already be upon us.
They never would, like Harvard they are in business to make money and student loans are a giant pool of money that Congress made unlimited in the 1980s - way to stick it to Reagan, Democrats - and schools are going to get all they can, and lobby to keep it while agreeing that $200,000 in student loan debt for arts degrees is a problem.
During the last periodic drought cycle, California politicians, catering to the their environmental allies, told everyone to replace their grass with artificial turf so that bizarre environmental regulations mandating water flow into the Pacific Ocean could stay in place.
None of it had a basis in science. The 'flow' in rivers, so strong the state had to warn kayaks to stay out - during a drought - was chosen by activists who used a high level, not the levels that a state which is naturally a desert had in the real world world.
Artifical turf meant less water needed by humans, we were old, and compassionate voters dutofully ripped up their grass.
Biologically, it doesn't work that way. Sugar can certainly help you if you are diabetic(1) and "anti-sugar rhetoric is simply diet-centric disease-mongering engendered by physiologic illiteracy,” according to Edward Archer, PhD.(2)
So we are creating National Happy Spectral Apiology Day beginning October 16th next year. Bees are important but the apparition of them dying off remains undetectable. Yet honey bees are important, if you like honey - or are in a business where you need to rent them, like almonds. Outside honey bees, we don't really know. We don't even know how many species there are, because tens of thousands of bee species don't have hives to guess about numbering.
So gum base is important to manufacturers. Chewing gum is a $25 billion per year business, 1,740,000,000,000 sticks. If humans chew each stick for 10 minutes, that is over 33,000,000 years we spend at it - annually.
Common sense says that if you have a lot more people walking, often in dark costumes, and just as many people driving, plus more people drinking alcohol than would otherwise occur on a Tuesday, pedestrian fatalities will go up.
Common sense is right. They will.
And then lose on appeal, as has happened with weedkillers, because a jury can believe anything they want but an appeals court uses science. And science says plants are not tiny green people so they cannot cause human cancer, and science says epidemiology is only over in the EXPLORATORY pile, with claims about mice and cell cultures. No drug has ever gone to market based on correlation or a mouse study, and none ever will.
Antiviral drugs are generally considered to be a 20th century invention. But recent research has uncovered an unexpected facet to your immune system: It can synthesize its own antiviral molecules in response to viral infections.
My laboratory studies a protein that makes these natural antiviral molecules. Far from a modern human invention, nature evolved cells to make their own “drugs” as the earliest defense against viruses.
Gen Z has been raised in an information age, they know that outside suicide and criminal activity, gun deaths are so rare that it's only slightly more concerning than dying due to a tornado. And they like their phones too much to endure the persistent black- and brown-outs that countries which relied too heavily on solar endure now.
Science Magazine Says It's Better Than Nature And Cell - Because Their Corporation Doesn't Pay A Dividend
It may be why we began to associate higher temperatures with warmer colors, lower sound pitches with less elevated positions, or colors with the flavor of particular foods. A new paper argues that such unconscious 'crossmodal' associations with our sense of smell can even affect our perception of colors.
Coronavirus is very similar to the common cold, so similar that coronavirus was not known to be distinct until the 1960s. Most who were infected with SARS-CoV-2 and got COVID-19 experienced symptoms like a cold, but those with co-morbidities or who had severe reactions got more like a super flu, some with devastating effect. Even after recovery, some still report lingering effects, given rise to the term 'long COVID.'
California solar is one place they're reducing costs. Right now, solar customers who already got subsides to install their panels also get to the sell excess energy back to the utility at the same price they'd buy it.
That obviously makes so little sense it's a surprise even politicians fell for it, but the state regulates utilities and tells them to pass the costs along to conventional energy customers. Everyone wins except the poor, and they don't donate to campaigns.
A recent paper, ironically in a journal from a publisher that has also been called predatory, argues that TikTok may be effective for encouraging women to get a pap smear, which aids in early detection of cervical cancer, which kills some 4,000 women each year in the United States.
