Comments Off on COP17 DURBAN UPDATE: Current Pledges Will Cause a Global Temperature Change of 3.5° C

As the nearly 200 representatives gathered at COP17 hurdle towards the end of the talks, researchers have released yet another study that says they are just not doing enough. A report issued during the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change in Durban this week says that current goals set forth by government leaders will send the Earth towards a warming of 3.5° F in 2100 . World leaders had previously agreed that they should limit the warming of the Earth to just 2° C, which would require world emissions to be cut by 2% each year until 2050. Now leaders are toying with the idea of putting off goals until 2015 or 2020, a move that the International Energy Agency has already noted will doom us all to a hefty bill should we want to fix things then. As the global leaders gathered in Durban dawdle and make little progress they are leading the human race right to a planet that’s about to become an oven.

Comments Off on DARPA’S Nano Robot Spy Hummingbird Moves Just Like a Real Bird!

AeroVironment has created a tiny, mechanical, flying bird that borrows from the natural movements of the hummingbird. The Nano Hummingbird is a flying robot created through a program sponsored by DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) that is meant to be used in future indoor and outdoor surveillance missions. DARPA has requested a remote-controlled Nano Air Vehicle that can fly, hover, move forward and backward and be controlled without an external power source. AeroVironment’s Nano Hummingbird does all of that and more. Read the rest of DARPA’S Nano Robot Spy Hummingbird Moves Just Like a Real Bird!

BP Accuses Halliburton of Destroying Evidence of Wrongdoing in Gulf Oil Spill

Comments Off on BP Accuses Halliburton of Destroying Evidence of Wrongdoing in Gulf Oil Spill

It is coming to fists again over the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. This time, however, it isn’t the people of the gulf against big oil, it is the oil companies against each other. BP is accusing Halliburton of knowingly destroying the results from a test on cement slurry at the site and seemingly losing computer modeling of the cement at the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Both are considered pieces of evidence that could prove Halliburton installed faulty cement at the site of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, causing the well to rupture and spill 4.9 million barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico.
