Pat Robertson: Satan Inspires Liberals To Lie About Donald Trump (And Me) Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson defended GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump over his recent comment that if Hillary Clinton is elected president, nothing could be done to prevent her and her judicial nominees from doing away with gun rights unless “Second Amendment people” stop them.
Katrina. New Mind-blowing Experiment Confirms That Reality Doesn’t Exist If You Are Not Looking at It. According to a well-known theory in quantum physics, a particle’s behavior changes depending on whether there is an observer or not.
It basically suggests that reality is a kind of illusion and exists only when we are looking at it. Numerous quantum experiments were conducted in the past and showed that this indeed might be the case. Now, physicists at the Australian National University have found further evidence for the illusory nature of reality. They recreated the John Wheeler’s delayed-choice experiment and confirmed that reality doesn’t exist until it is measured, at least on the atomic scale.
Songs and Lit. Today's temperatures at the North Pole are scaring scientists around the world. The North Pole is famous for many things. 24-hour darkness, polar bears, and of course, being the home of Santa Claus.
One thing it's definitely not known for, though, is balmy, casual, "Hey, how cold is it? Do you think I need a light jacket? " type temperatures. Why 2015 may be remembered as a transformative year for how we get energy. Construction takes place at Roha Dyechem solar plant at Bhadla, north of Jodhpur in the western Indian state of Rajasthan.
(Money Sharma/AFP/Getty Images) The United States is on track to shut down a record amount of coal-fired power plants in 2015. At the same time, it has installed a record amount of new solar energy capacity. The past year, in other words, hints at a historic transition for the U.S. energy sector. From dramatic price plunges for oil and natural gas to the significant emergence of industrial batteries for energy storage, 2015 was on a momentous course even before the world came together in Paris to agree on steps to reduce global warming. Video Makes Visible California's Unseen Natural Gas Disaster. More than two months after a Southern California natural gas leak began spewing as much as 128,000 pounds of planet-warming methane into the atmosphere every hour, the source of the rupture has been located, officials said Monday.
Secret funding helped build vast network of climate denial thinktanks. Conservative billionaires used a secretive funding route to channel nearly $120m (£77m) to more than 100 groups casting doubt about the science behind climate change, the Guardian has learned.
The funds, doled out between 2002 and 2010, helped build a vast network of thinktanks and activist groups working to a single purpose: to redefine climate change from neutral scientific fact to a highly polarising "wedge issue" for hardcore conservatives. The millions were routed through two trusts, Donors Trust and the Donors Capital Fund, operating out of a generic town house in the northern Virginia suburbs of Washington DC.
Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London A: Mathematical, Physical and Engineering Sciences. Have we hit "the end of the fossil fuel era"? Not even close. The Paris climate deal is, potentially, an important first step toward addressing climate change.
Gwynne Dyer: Coasting toward climate change disaster. They made some progress at the annual December round of the international negotiations on controlling climate change, held this year in Qatar.
They agreed that the countries that cause the warming should compensate the ones that suffer the most from it. The principle, known as the Loss and Damage mechanism, has no numbers attached to it, but it’s a step forward. The only step forward, unfortunately. In the first phase of these talks, which concluded with the Kyoto Protocol of 1997, the emphasis was on “mitigation”; that is, on stopping the warming by cutting human emissions of carbon dioxide and other “greenhouse gases”. That made good sense, but they didn’t get anywhere. Is The Earth F**cked? Before you accuse me of sensationalism in the choice of today's title, let me quote from the Slate story Scientists Ask Blunt Question on Everyone’s Mind.
Many of us have wondered at some point in almost precisely these terms: “Is Earth F**ked?” Let us disambiguate Werner's question. What’s NASA Hiding? Funds Study That Predicts How The World Will End, Then Washes Its Hands Of The Research AnonHQ. Technology In March 2014, a new study partly-sponsored by NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center found that modern civilization will collapse in mere decades unless humans reduce inequality and shift to renewable resources.
The scientists created a NASA-funded new cross-disciplinary model – Human And Nature DYnamics or HANDY – on climate change to compare an egalitarian society, an equitable society, and an unequal society. According to The Guardian, the study came to a conclusion that history is replete with evidences that advanced, complex civilizations are susceptible to collapse. Its authors claimed that HANDY offered a highly credible wake-up call to governments, corporations, business and consumers to recognize that policy and structural changes are required immediately to avoid societal collapse. The study further investigated factors, which may be most closely linked to civilizations’ downfalls, including population, climate, water, agriculture, and energy. BP’s maximum fine for Gulf of Mexico oil spill is cut by billions. BP will face a maximum fine of $13.7bn under the Clean Water Act for its Gulf of Mexico oil spill in 2010, several billion less than feared.
Federal magistrate Carl Barbier ruled on Thursday that the size of the spill from the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig, the worst offshore spill in US history, was smaller than the government had claimed. He said that it amounted to 3.19m barrels, well below the government’s estimate of 4.09m barrels, which could have led to penalties of up to $17.6bn. US-listed shares of BP rose about 1% to $36.20 in after-hours trading as investors worried about the size of potential penalties breathed a sigh of relief. Corexit, Oil Dispersant Used By BP, Is Destroying Gulf Marine Life, Scientists Say. Chemicals used in oil spill cleanup made Gulf disaster worse. An estimated 4.9 million barrels of oil spilled into the Gulf of Mexico during the Deepwater Horizon disaster.
