Enhancing Solar Energy capture while decreasing costs


Researchers developed cost-effective double-sided solar cells to capture both direct and reflected solar radiation. Worldwide dependence on fossil fuels for energy has led to a variety of important problems including environmental effects of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, fluctuations in energy security related to supply and demand, high energy costs, depletion of natural resources and limited […]

New NASA Data Blow Gaping Hole In Global Warming Alarmism


NASA satellite data from the years 2000 through 2011 show the Earth’s atmosphere is allowing far more heat to be released into space than alarmist computer models have predicted, reports a new study in the peer-reviewed science journal Remote Sensing. The study indicates far less future global warming will occur than United Nations computer models […]

Can the Earth’s Wandering Magnetic Poles Cause Deadly Superstorms?


The Earth’s magnetic poles have started moving at an increased rate in recent years. Some fear a catastrophic pole flip. Most scientists don’t seem worried.  (FOX News)- Will the wandering magnetic North Pole create crazy superstorms? The eye-popping connection between the planet’s weather and itsmagnetic field has caught hold among scaremongers recently, ever since scientists described the […]

Committee on Earth Observation building GEOSS


IEEE Committee on Earth Observation Standards Working Group (ISWG) is recruiting volunteers to build GEOSS Imagine a world where adoption of uniform standards for all manner of Earth observation systems and services made universal interoperability the rule, not the exception. That world is one of the major goals of the IEEE Committee on Earth Observation […]

Space tourism could have big impact on climate


Space tourism could have big impact on climate Space tourism could have major consequences for Earth’s climate. New computer simulations suggest soot emitted by the rockets could raise temperatures at the poles, significantly reducing seasonal ice cover there. In the next few years, space tourism companies hope to start routinely flying passengers on suborbital space […]
