A Sprinkle of Seaweed can Eliminate Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Cattle

One could say that we have a beef with the rising amount of methane (CH4) in the atmosphere: although this powerful greenhouse gas breaks down much faster than carbon dioxide, it traps 86 times more heat than CO2 over a 20-year span. Human activity has been the chief source of the increase in modern CH4 levels, having increased by about 150 percent since 1750, with about half of all human-generated methane coming from our livestock -- particularly from the planet's 1.5 billion cows. However, a new study has found that spicing a cow's feed with simple seaweed can cut a burping bovine's methane production by up to 99 percent.
 June 2017 was the third-hottest month of June on record, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), putting 2017 on track to be the second hottest year on record. On the surface, this sounds like good news, but this means that 2017 will still be hotter than the years before...

Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) has announced that they plan dump 777,000 tons of tritium-contaminated water into the Pacific Ocean, as part of their multi-billion dollar recovery efforts at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. The total amount of radioactive material involved would be approximately 115 times the annual safety limit for...

The revised dating and uncovering of new artifacts from an archaeological site in Australia's Arnhem Land has prompted archaeologists to revise theories as to when the ancestors of present-day Aboriginies first settled in what we now call Australia, pushing that date back by 20,000 years to a point in time 65,000 years ago. This revised timeline al...

IN ANNE'S DIARY

My experience  now is very different from what it was at first. Right after I died, I was an exact replica of myself when I was alive except that I wasn’t sick and I could walk. The first thing I did was show Whitley that I could do that again. I knew that he was grieving terribly, and I wanted him to see that some good had come out of i...
