On top of each was a special light containing blue, red, green, and UV LEDs behind a diffuser, allowing the researchers to light up the feeder in a variety of nonspectral colors.

The problem Greene and Lobb worked on predicts, basically, that every such path contains sets of four points that form the vertices of rectangles of any desired proportion.But again, the problem Greene and Lobb solved involves curves that are smooth, and therefore continuous.
Along with thinning trees in overcrowded forests, Kusel says, biomass projects help rebuild rural communities by creating jobs, all while preventing the massive carbon emissions released in wildfires.Kusel’s projects utilize dead, diseased, and burned trees, along with the small-diameter green trees that he says overcrowd forests and contribute to fire danger.
When a company buys carbon offsets , it funds projects elsewhere to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, such as planting trees in Indonesia or installing giant machines inside California dairies that suck up the methane produced by burping and farting cows and turn it into a usable biofuel.
And if you’re looking for more, Cool Green Science has abundant reviews on a variety of topics, from nature in literary fiction and mystery novels, books for birders and for anglers and traveling naturalists , reviews of field guides and nature references , and much more.
To rescue the American auto industry, and our world, we should launch a massive, coordinated private-public partnership: the Green-Car New Deal.So the Green-Car New Deal would focus public investment on creating better, cheaper batteries.
The Cybertruck presents a golden opportunity to pioneer technologies that eliminate residual emissions from automotive manufacturing.The most obvious way to achieve this is through designing cars to be part of a so-called circular economy–wherein products are reused and recycled, rather than thrown away.
We'll get to the rest of this week's security news in just a second, but before all that you need to carve out a little chunk of your day to read WIRED senior writer Andy Greenberg's profile of Marcus Hutchins , the hacker who stopped the berserking WannaCry ransomware three years ago.
Mimicking Long’s gang, a slew of players purchased green alien suits and baseball bats to menace GTA V innocents.In protest, players donned purple alien suits and rose up against the bully green gang members.

"Mapping peatlands to know their location, extent and greenhouse gas emissions potential, can help countries to plan and better manage their land, water and biodiversity, mitigating climate change and adapting to it more effectively," says Maria Nuutinen, FAO's lead peatlands expert with the Forestry Department and co-author of the publication.
In the past couple of years, some Republicans have broken ranks with their party to support a tax on carbon emissions —perhaps because the climate is becoming more salient with voters, perhaps as a foil to the more radical Green New Deal, or perhaps to, you know, do something to stop global warming .
After three years of tumult and revised scientific analyses, the Trump administration Tuesday formally relaxed Obama-era fuel economy rules that aimed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and stall the effects of climate change .Under the new rules, automakers will have to meet less stringent targets for cars and light-duty trucks through 2026.

12 March 2020, Havana/Rome - The Board of the Green Climate Fund today approved a $119 million disbursement for a FAO co-designed project to boost the resilience to climate change of vulnerable rural communities in Cuba.
“Or it becomes so important from an economic standpoint, so desirable and hardened with infrastructure that entire buildings are empty—purchased by real estate funds or individuals from the Middle East or Russia,” Anguelovski says.
Yet if you were to construct a giant solar farm in space and beam that energy to Earth, the power of the sun would be available around the clock.If Bezos spent just 1 percent of the Earth Fund to develop space-based solar power, it would effectively double the available funding in the US.
NIWA researchers have helped unlock information trapped in ancient air samples from Greenland and Antarctica that shows the amount of methane humans are emitting into the atmosphere from fossil fuels has been vastly underestimated.
Lightning—a phenomenon more suited to places like Florida—is now striking within 100 miles of the North Pole .All the while, researchers are racing to quantify how the plant species of the Arctic are coping with a much, much warmer world.
The complaint goes to some lengths to emphasize that Greenwald was not initially a subject of the investigation into this alleged hacking group, but that an audio recording uncovered during a lawful search pointed to "direct participation of the journalist in criminal conduct."
Last week, JetBlue announced it will offset its 15 billion to 17 billion pounds of greenhouse gas emissions by purchasing carbon credits and pumping cleaner-burning aviation fuel into planes landing at San Francisco International Airport.
These mayors are members of C40, a network of 94 large cities—Paris, Los Angeles, Shanghai, Lagos, to name a few—committed to meeting the goals of the Paris Agreement of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius over preindustrial levels and reducing global greenhouse gas emissions by 50 percent by 2030.That declaration didn’t just reaffirm these cities’ efforts to fight climate change .
Disparity in tech jobs is still a thing, and holiday deals are in full swing, but first: a cartoon about how video conferences spiral out of control .Here's the news you need to know, in two minutes or less.
Think of a climatic tipping point, like the accelerating melting of Greenland’s ice sheet, as a chair.A tipping point of runaway effects could come once between 20 and 40 percent of the forest cover is lost, the researchers say, as the system switches from wet to dry, more like a savanna.
13 November, Songdo, Republic of Korea - The Board of the Green Climate Fund (GCF) today approved $161 million in funding to support climate resilient projects in Chile, Kyrgyzstan and Nepal benefitting 1.5 million people.
Rob Jackson, who documents greenhouse gas emissions as chair of the Global Carbon Project, worries that Trump’s move sends a bad signal to wobbly countries like Brazil and Australia that have had a hard time meeting stated climate goals.
The abundant water and underground heat is harnessed by hydroelectric dams and geothermal power stations to produce cheap, green electricity that facilitates the energy-intensive process of confirming cryptocurrency transactions—called mining, since miners are rewarded for their efforts with newly minted and extremely volatile “coins.” The fact temperatures rarely top 57 degrees Fahrenheit also helps.
