Science & Tech  (tags: study, science, parasite, parasitic mites, prevention, chemical based pesticide, CO2, carbon dioxide, agriculture, Japan )

- 1019 days ago -
A method of protecting strawberry plantsfrom two-spotted spider mites without chemical-based pesticides might help farmers in Miyagi Prefecture who were devastated by the tsunami on March 11, 2011.
Synthetic Gasoline For $1.50/Gallon and No Emissions
Science & Tech  (tags: Synthetic Gasoline, Emissions, fuel, oil, co2 )

- 1765 days ago -
Administrations dating back to the Nixon years have touted a "get off foreign oil" policy that, to date, has really gone no where. We're still on foreign oil. But now we might have a chance to get on foreign synthetic gasoline.
Scientists Create 'Dry Water' That Can Be Used to Soak Up Carbon Dioxide
Science & Tech  (tags: Science, Dry Water, CO2, gas )

- 1919 days ago -
It sounds like a contradiction in terms, but scientists have created 'dry water'.Each particle of dry water contains a water droplet surrounded by a sandy silica coating. In fact, 95 per cent of dry water is 'wet' water.
Even Plants Cannot Help Cool Earth If CO2 Is in Excess: Study
Science & Tech  (tags: Biology, CO2, plant physiology, study, transpiration, cooling, warming the earth )

- 2018 days ago -
Contrary to the belief that plants could help cool earth, scientists have found that they will directly warm the land surface when there is excess carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
Search Engines' Dirty Secret
Science & Tech  (tags: energy, search engines, laws of thermodynamics, electrons, CO2 )

- 2059 days ago -
The term search "engine" is apt. Searches are powered by millions of computers packed into warehouses, all wired together to function as a single system. Like any system, it obeys the laws of thermodynamics, and therefore wastes energy.
Solar Energy Converted to Sugars
Science & Tech  (tags: photosynthesis, solar energy, CO2, Science )

- 2082 days ago -
For decades, farmers have been trying to find ways to get more energy out of the sun. In natural photosynthesis, plants take in solar energy and carbon dioxide and then convert it to oxygen and sugars.
Tiny Warriors Join Energy Hunt
Science & Tech  (tags: energy, NewTechnology, Co2, convert, micro-organism, JAMSTEC, lignite, methane, coalfield, Japan )

- 2152 days ago -
The Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC) is developing a technology to seal off carbon dioxide in seabed coalfields and convert it into natural gas, or methane, using microorganisms, according to the source.
Scientists Search for Carbon Solutions in Amazonia's 'Black Earth'
Science & Tech  (tags: environment, CO2, Amazon, gardening, discovery, archaeology, interesting, ancient, research, CO2emissions, climate-change, Sustainabililty, food, greenliving, green, sustainable, energy, coolstuff, CO2emissions, conservation )

- 2450 days ago -
jet-black patches of dirt so fertile that they could be planted continuously for over 40 years without applying fertilizer.++they could augment soil fertility and, perhaps, leach carbon out of the atmosphere and reverse global warming.
A Short Primer: The Greenhouse Effect Explained
Science & Tech  (tags: environment, weather, CO2 )

- 2462 days ago -
Guest post by Steve Goddard There is a considerable amount of misinformation propagated about the greenhouse effect by people from both sides of the debate. The basic concepts are straightforward, as explained here.
Arctic Volcanoes Exploded at 'Impossible' Depth
Science & Tech  (tags: science, research, study, scientists, volcano, CO2, environment, interesting )

- 2709 days ago -
The deep ocean continues to surprise - it appears that volcanoes on the Arctic seabed have blown up at depths where such events were thought impossible
