Kamut: miti da sfatare. ‘Impossible’ Quantum Space Engine Actually Works – NASA Test Suggests. A couple of years ago, researchers at NASA’s Johnson Space Center discovered a thruster system which actually generates thrust, despite requiring absolutely zero propellant.

‘Impossible’ Quantum Space Engine Actually Works – NASA Test Suggests

The implications of this discovery are far-reaching; applications for space flight and other technologies which require propulsion could one day become far cheaper, allowing space exploration to expand exponentially. The existence of this technology also further validates the fact that energy can be derived from tapping into the quantum vacuum, also known as “zero-point” energy or “free energy.” This type of technology uses quantum vacuum fluctuations to create thrust. Many materialistically inclined scientists still refuse to accept this fact, simply because it goes against the current framework of accepted knowledge and/or their perception of the world. The paper is also available on NASA’s website, you can view it here, it’s the first link you see but unfortunately it doesn’t seem to work… The argument for a basic income. I went to Cherokee to explore the idea of a "universal basic income," which is a fancy way of saying something that's really quite simple: Give everyone cash, just for existing.

The argument for a basic income

The goal, according to proponents of such a policy, is to alleviate, if not eliminate, the scourge of poverty. And, more importantly, to reduce the social ills -- poor health, poor educational attainment, poor job prospects and higher odds of ending up in jail -- associated with kids who grow up poor. The argument for a basic income. Effetto Risorse: La profezia di Keynes: il Bengodi che non arrivò mai. Atlantic and Pacific multidecadal oscillations and Northern Hemisphere temperatures. The recent slowdown in global warming has brought into question the reliability of climate model projections of future temperature change and has led to a vigorous debate over whether this slowdown is the result of naturally occurring, internal variability or forcing external to Earth’s climate system.

Untitled. Coming soon: the 'Big Heat' We probably have less than five years before we witness the 'Big Heat' - a supercharged surge of rapid global warming, destabilizing the climate system in deeply unpredictable ways.

Coming soon: the 'Big Heat'

Forget the so-called 'pause' in global warming-new research says we might be in for an era of deeply accelerated heating. While the rate of atmospheric warming in recent years has, indeed, slowed due to various natural weather cycles - hence the skeptics' droning on about 'pauses' - global warming, as a whole, has not stopped.

The US south-west and the Great Plains will face decade-long droughts far worse than any experienced over the last 1,000 years because of climate change, researchers said on Thursday.

US faces worst droughts in 1,000 years, predict scientists

The coming drought age – caused by higher temperatures under climate change – will make it nearly impossible to carry on with current life-as-normal conditions across a vast swathe of the country. The droughts will be far worse than the one in California – or those seen in ancient times, such as the calamity that led to the decline of the Anasazi civilizations in the 13th century, the researchers said.

Michio Kaku on Singularity 1 on 1: Science is the Engine of Prosperity! Atamai Ecovillage: It’s Just Common-Sense. A newly formed Permaculture Village in New Zealand is providing families a different way of living. At the top of the South Island, which boasts a temperate, Mediterranean climate with the most sunshine of any part of New Zealand, Atamai Village is nestled in a picturesque, hilly valley just ten minutes’ drive from the Tasman Straight and the town of Motueka.

But what makes Atamai different is its vision for a different future. “Atamai” means common sense in Maori. The village was formed as an intentional response to pending climate change and energy descent.
