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 )

Anna
- 2003 days ago - news.discovery.com
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 )

Anna
- 2156 days ago - dailymail.co.uk
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 )

Marta

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 )

Marta
- 2297 days ago - newscientist.com
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 )

Alisa
- 2319 days ago - sciencedaily.com
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.
