Met Office to print man-made global warming information

Technology.am (Dec. 05, 2009) — The Met Office (MO) is to broadcast about the publishing the raw statistics it uses to analyze man-made global warming. It follows a row about the consistency of data from the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia which has been dubbed “Climategate”.
The MO has on paper written to 188 countries for authorization to issue the historic data it says proves that the world is warming up owing to man-made emissions.
The substance, dating back 160 years from over 1,000 weather stations around …

A.P. And others produce news center on Facebook for climate discussion

Technology.am (Dec. 02, 2009) — The Associated Press is partnering with additional international news organizations on an online hub where readers can intermingle with journalists covering the climate talks opening next week in Copenhagen.
The page on the social-networking site Facebook is intended at drawing fresh readers and getting them more occupied with news coverage online. Conventional media outlets have struggled to produce sufficient online traffic and promotion to restore revenue that’s been mislaid as readers and advertisers move to the Web.
The objective of the news agencies’ Facebook plan called the …

How can scientists gauge evolutionary responses to climate change

Technology.am (Dec. 01, 2009) — While global temperatures persist to increase scientists are on hand with the composite challenge of understanding how species react and adapt. In a paper published in Insect Conservation and Diversity, Dr Francisco Rodriguez-Trelles and Dr Miguel Rodriguez evaluate this challenge.
Twentieth-Century global warming of roughly 0.6˚C has by now affected the Earth’s biota and currently the most important challenge in front of ecologists and evolutionary biologists is to forecast how biological impacts of climate change will unfurl in response to more anticipated temperature increases of up …

Australians try to stop sheep burping

Technology.am (Nov 30, 2009) — Australian scientists are working hard to breed a sheep that belches less, as they come across ways to decrease detrimental methane emissions from the country’s flocks.
About 12 per cent of Australia’s greenhouse gases begin with agriculture, and some 70 per cent of that total is blamed on ruminant livestock, with the majority of it coming from burps.
John Goop, the study leader, calculated the sheep’s emissions by herding them into a specifically designed booth soon after they consume food and then calculating the quantity of gas …

Technology.am (Nov 24, 2009) — A group of South Korean scientists have created the polymers used for daily plastics through bioengineering, rather than through the utilization of fossil fuel-based chemicals. It is supposed that the practice may currently let for the manufacture of ecologically aware plastic that is biodegradable and low in toxicity.
The research focused on Polylactic Acid (PLA), a bio-based polymer which holds the answer to producing plastics through natural and renewable resources. Polymers are molecules found in daily life in the form of plastics and rubbers.
“The polyesters and …

Harvesting power From Nature’s Motions

Technology.am (Oct 30, 2009) — By taking benefit of the vagaries of the natural world, Duke University engineers have developed an original advance that they deem is capable of more competently produce electricity from the motions of daily life.
Energy harvesting is the procedure of converting one type of energy, for example motion, into another form of energy, in this case electrical energy. Strategies range from the progress of enormous wind farms to generate huge amounts of electricity to using the vibrations of walking to power small electronic devices.
Even though motion …
