Nanosized hydrogen generator uses light and two-dimensional graphene

September 19, 2014

Summary:

Researchers have created a small scale “hydrogen generator” that uses light and a two-dimensional graphene platform to boost production of the hard-to-make element. The research also unveiled a previously unknown property of graphene. The two-dimensional chain of carbon atoms not only gives and receives electrons, but can also transfer them into another substance.

Hope against Desertification   

Keep The World From Turning To Dust!


 "These examples have to be set so that the world can have a positive future but we have to explain that unless this soil management is fully demonstrated, extended and enhanced, then we don't have any future. The world is just going to turn to dust." says Geoff Lawton in the Part 2 of the Greening The Desert documentary.

This is part 2 a spectacular success story, by world renowned permaculture expert Geoff Lawton. His team went to the Jordan Desert and transformed 10 acres of the arid desert into a lush, thriving, food producing garden. They developed a system to harvest every drop of rainwater, and created swells with over a foot of mulch. Then they used a micro irrigation system in the mulch.

These techniques maximized the moisture and brought life back to the soil. They were able to grow date palms, pomegranates, figs, mulberries, citrus and more. This is fascinating and as Geoff Lawton says in this video: "All the world's problems can be solved in a garden". It's not just that the moisture system worked and kept the soil and plants thriving-- in the process they lowered the salt levels dramatically.

This location is only a few miles from the Dead Sea!  :o  ;D This is recapped in the first 5 minutes of this video. Then we move on to Part 11, six years later, taking you to the original Greening the Desert site, letting you see its present condition after six years of neglect when funding ran out in 2003.

Then you will see the new project site – the Jordan Valley Permaculture Project, aka ‘Greening the Desert, the Sequel. It is possible to re-green and decrease the salt levels in any desert with water harvesting, micro-irrigation and mulch. A miracle indeed! --Bibi Farber

How to Build a Wind Turbine From Scratch   ;D

Thanks to filmmaker Jake Beed and the Action4Climate video competition, you can have a first-hand look at what it’s like to build a wind turbine from scratch. In If You Build It, watch a group of young Canadians strive for a more sustainable way of life by figuring out how to generate their own power via a homemade wind turbine.

With little to no prior knowledge or experience, the group finds help in the surrounding community’s skill sets that all come together to create a moment that will last for as long as the wind blows. This film is inspiring. It shows how you can build a community by building a wind turbine and that passion is the key ingredient to getting things done.

Renewable energy deployment is key to solving global energy issues. Especially in energy poor countries, it’s vital that communities embrace clean energy and work on strategies to keep the power generation locally owned.

One great example is in the Dharnai village in Bihar, one of India’s poorest states. The community is now lit-up by a community-owned solar-powered micro-grid. Dharnai is the first village in India where all aspects of life are powered by solar. The 100 kilowatt (kW) system powers the 450 homes of the 2,400 residents, 50 commercial operations, two schools, a training center and a health care facility. A battery backup ensures power around the clock.

“If we are to end extreme poverty, we must tackle energy poverty,” said World Bank Senior Director for Energy & Extractives Anita Marangoly George. “With 1.2 billion people still living without electricity across Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, it’s clear where our work will be focused for the foreseeable future. Our priority is to find the cleanest energy solutions to meet local needs in the smartest ways possible.”

The Action4Climate video competition received more than 230 entries from 70 countries from students inspired to share their climate change stories. To watch other Action4Climate videos, click here.

If you are a pro-fossil fuel BULLSHIT artist GW denier, please be sure to claim the following peer reviewed article is wild eyed breathless screaming, sky is falling scare mongering and unscientific silliness.  ;D

Climate Change

Is Atlantic holding Earth's missing heat?


Eli Kintisch

Armchair detectives might call it the case of Earth's missing heat: Why have average global surface air temperatures remained essentially  ;)  steady since 2000, even as greenhouse gases have continued to accumulate in the atmosphere?

The suspects include changes in atmospheric water vapor, a strong greenhouse gas, or the noxious sunshade of haze emanating from factories. Others believe the culprit is the mighty Pacific Ocean, which has been sending vast slugs of cold bottom water to the surface.

But two fresh investigations finger a new suspect: the Atlantic Ocean.

One study, in this issue of Science,
presents sea temperature data implying that most of the missing heat has been stored deep in the Atlantic.

The other, published online in Nature Climate Change, suggests a warming Atlantic is abetting the Pacific by driving wind patterns that help that ocean cool the atmosphere. But some climate specialists remain skeptical.

In a third recent paper, also published online in Nature Climate Change, other researchers argue that the Pacific remains the kingpin. One reason some scientists remain convinced the Pacific is behind the hiatus   ;) is a measured speedup in trade winds that drive a massive upwelling of cold water in the eastern Pacific. But there, too, the Atlantic may be responsible, modeling experiments suggest.

A consensus about what has put global warming on pause   ;)may be years away,
but one scientist says the recent papers confirm that Earth's warming has continued during the hiatus, at least in the ocean depths, if not in the air.

http://www.sciencemag.org/content/345/6199/860.summary

Agelbert NOTE: There is a logical problem with the above article. It might be considered a quibble   but since we aren't talking opinions here but a hard boiled scientific method approach to data and the definition of terms, it is inaccurate and unscientific to discuss a HIATUS of GLOBAL warming when ONLY the atmospheric temperature records are considered!

Hello? The oceans, covering two thirds of this planet's SURFACE, are part of the GLOBE (two thirds of it!). So, OBVIOUSLY, the temperature of the oceans in conjunction with the temperature of the atmosphere MUST be computed as a UNIT if a GLOBAL WARMING HIATUS is to be CLAIMED!

So, this hair splitting exercise about the ATMOSPHERE being in a Global Warming HIATUS is an incorrect statement.

WHY? First of all, because even the atmospheric temperature data NEVER flat lined; it's SLOPE continued UP at a much lower angle. That is a RELATIVE hiatus from the STEEP ANGLED TEMPERATURE UP SLOPE, not a TEMPERATURE INCREASE HIATUS! How scientists can equate those Apples with those Oranges only Mking could tell us. 

Hair splitting IS science when we are JUST TALKING ABOUT HAIR! But we have an OCEAN of molecular activity (known as temperature  ;D)  in INTIMATE CONTACT with those "hairs" (the atmosphere) that it is just plain unscientific as well as STUPID to ignore (unless you want to distort the data, of course  ).

Sure, the oceans have high specific heat. So, it is expected scientifically that the temperature of the oceans in a warming planet will lag behind the atmosphere. But the thermodynamics in regard to specific heat is not the only process going on here; there is a CHEMICAL PROCESS TOO!

Science teaches us that there are exothermic and endothermic processes in nature. HELLO? The increase in CO2 is creating an ENDOTHERMIC chemical process in the oceans making them have, in effect, a slightly lower specific heat which SUCKS heat from the atmosphere!

And THAT SHOULD have caused a flat line or possibly COOLING in the atmosphere. But the Global Warming from fossil fuel burning green house gasses is so SEVERE that, even with the oceanic endothermic chemical process going on, the slope STILL DID NOT FLAT LINE.


There has BEEN NO HIATUS in anything but a departure from the ANGLE of the slope on INCREASE of atmospheric temperature.   

Below please find a "wild eyed, hyperbolic, extreme, polarized, unobjective and definitely not measured definition" (according to Mking :evil4:) of the word "hiatus". This "breathless" definition forces us prudent and measured types to accept the unacceptable! That is, that since an INCREASE in average global atmospheric temperature NEVER STOPPED, the "hiatus" is ONLY attributable to the ANGLE OF THE SLOPE of the temperature increase, and not the temperature increase itself. And even worse than that:  :o Horror of horrors for our fossil fuel stock portfolio, the alleged hiatus doesn't include MOST of the molecular activity (i.e. temperature) on two thirds of the PALNET! So, woe is us, we can't call it a GLOBAL temperature warming pause, hiatus or fossil fuel stock buying opportunity. 

But we can give those reality based community rubes the old Fossil Fuel (Skullduggery) College TRY, just the same!

Arctic Melt season ending
September 16, 2014   

The end of this year’s Arctic sea ice melt season is imminent and the minimum extent will be slightly lower than last year’s, making it the sixth lowest extent in the satellite record. Earlier in the month, a small area of the Laptev Sea ice edge was within five degrees of the North Pole. This appears to be the result of persistent southerly winds from central Siberia. Meanwhile, Antarctic sea ice is poised to set a record maximum this year, now at 19.7 million square kilometers (7.6 million square miles) and continuing to increase.

The Monsanto Canada Inc. v. Schmeiser case involved a Canadian farmer who discovered Roundup Ready Canola seed in his farm despite never using it.
Users of this weed controller are forced to enter into an agreement with Monsanto that specifies the repurchase of the new seed every year, along with an annual licensing fee.

Percy Schmeiser was a canola breeder in Canada, but had never used Monsanto’s products. Unfortunately, he discovered that a section of his field was resistant to the herbicide Roundup, the harvest was sold without him knowing. Monsanto then sued Schmeiser for patent infringement. The farm maintained that the selling of Roundup ready crop was accidental, and the seed had flown into the harvest from a passing truck. The court found Schmeiser guilty  >:(, as growing GM plants constitutes using patented GMO’s.  


It's the LAW! Monsanto REARRANGED genetic material so they OWN the patent to the GMO, RIGHT?

They OWN the INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY to the GMO they, painstakingly and with deliberate, INTELLIGENT DESIGN, CREATED with their KNOWLEDGE of Molecular biology and genetics.  ;D

These GMOs are NOT the result of RANDOM MUTATIONS. Monsanto created them so they must be credited with the work done to create them (even if the creation wasn't ex nihllo. Whaddaya want, eggs in yer beer!!?  ;D). 



To understand how Monsanto LOGIC ;D works, let's pretend a unique LEGO Block represents every one of the 20 AMINO ACIDS that exist and compose proteins in ALL LIVING THINGS.

Now, please watch an animation of an ACTUAL HEMOGLOBIN Protein being manufactured at link to the video after the description.

Description: Fascinating clip explaining how densely packed information (in the form of DNA) is unpacked, turning said information into actual proteins.

This process of transcription and translation is in all aspects a complete language system, with sender, receiver, messenger, and translation algorithms.


This language convention and the transcendent information it conveys defies evolutionary dogma at every turn.

Evolution’s oyster twist


The oyster, Ostrea sp. (left), was said to have evolved over millions of years into the coiled shell Gryphaea sp.—also known as “the devil’s toenails” (right). But there’s a new ‘twist’ to the story—Gryphaea’s coiling has nothing to do with evolution.

by David Catchpoole

SNIPPET:

Quote
Oysters have the unfortunate distinction that they were one of the first examples of an alleged proof of evolutionary lineage in the fossil record (mooted by paleontologist A.E. Trueman in 1922).1 The ‘flat’ oyster, Ostrea sp., was said to have evolved into the coiled shell Gryphaea sp. Several generations of science students were taught this as ‘one of the best documented cases of evolution’ in the fossil record.

However, today it seems that coiling is a built-in programming response to the environment, i.e. mud-sticking oysters grow into a coiled cup-shaped form, while oysters attaching to firmer substrate2 grow to be ‘flat, fan-shaped recliners’.3 So, coiling is an individual growth response to local environment; not a millions-of-years evolutionary twist.  8)
