Several unique animals, including the North American wolverine, the northern spotted owl and the American burying beetle, demonstrate how the changes could hamper species protection.
Matt Simon covers cannabis, robots, and climate science for WIRED.Weirder still, on top of there typically being not enough heat to form deep convective clouds in the Arctic, there’s also a limit to how high these things can build up into the atmosphere. Sea ice provides less heat and moisture to feed a deep convective cloud as it rises ever higher.
NIC manager Sadie Mills says staff on research vessels and fisheries observers use identification guides to help them to identify common species and over the past few years have become much more proficient at what they do.
For Vikaas Sohal, a neuroscientist at UC San Francisco, who was not involved in the work, the discovery of these cells might help the field move away from conflicts about gamma rhythms. If they really are clock-like cells, he says, then signs of their timekeeping should show up in the rhythm of the local field potential.
It’s unfair,” says Ian Philabaum, a program director at Immigration Law Lab. Of the nearly 1 million asylum cases waiting to be heard, about 74 percent are for people coming from El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Mexico.
Material Safety Data Sheets, the chemical equivalent of technology user terms and conditions, have offered descriptions of those hazards since the early 1900s. Even if users don’t read the safety data sheet, they are greeted by this bright, unavoidable summary of material hazards every time they look at the container.
“Suddenly stopping solar geoengineering could cause the climate to change very rapidly, allowing ecosystems and economies less time to adapt to new conditions,” says Proctor.
A Devastating Climate Change Report, a Phone Bug Returns, and More News. A new climate change report dropped, a decade-old desk phone bug returned, and WIRED wants to up your grill game. A 10-year-old desk phone bug came back from the dead.
Crispr Can Help Solve Our Looming Food Crisis—Here's How. The potential for gene editing to make every acre of land more productive in the face of climate change has captured the imagination of plant scientists, the agtech industry, and governments alike.
“We can reduce our demand, or we can increase the amount of land we grow stuff on and the number of animals that produce food,” says Van Eenennaam.
This new report takes steps to quantify how our abuse of the land—deforestation, industrial agriculture, draining of carbon-capturing peatlands—is driving climate change, and in turn how that climate change is exacerbating the degradation of land the world over.
“Those manifestos are specifically designed to be objects of media manipulation,” says Whitney Phillips, who researches troll culture and online extremism at Syracuse University.
The researchers found that they could use their first stingray attack to modify a device's stated category number during the connection process, downgrading it to an older network.
Right now it’s unclear what form Apple’s Siri opt-out will take; the company has suspended its voice data collection temporarily and says only that once it resumes, “users will have the ability to choose to participate.” Apple didn’t respond to a request for more specific information.
Any serious policy response to global warming needs to transfer some of the costs from voters to the fossil fuel interests, where they belong. To fight global warming, we need to organize a broad public counterweight against the sectoral interests that are trying to block action.
Eel larvae face a long journey from their spawning grounds in unknown parts of the Western Pacific Ocean to the freshwater rivers and streams of New Zealand where they spend most of their lives.
That, though, would require forest management across swaths of the Arctic, a kind of management we in the US can’t even do right on a small scale .What we’re looking at, then, is yet another complicating factor in the massive complexity that is climate change: When peat burns, it emits lots of CO2, and when peatlands aren’t healthy, they don’t capture any.
Murray, who admits to being a snorer himself, says Sleeptracker uses technology to help people in two ways: “through information, at a time when people are craving that, and by helping them to automatically sleep better when they’re in bed.” He hopes that it will earn the company a new cohort of snore-free, easy-sleeping customers.
