Comments Off on PETITION: Tell presidential candidates to stop lying about climate change!

In 2016, the American people will select a new president , and that person will face some of the most difficult challenges this world has ever seen. Climate change and the human impact on it are arguably the biggest problems the next president will have to tackle. With the frenzied season of political promises ahead will come a barrage of media coverage of presidential hopefuls and their proposed policies. Newly-announced presidential candidate Ted Cruz is well known for rejecting climate change, saying “global warming alarmists are the equivalent of the flat-Earthers.” Other candidates are likely to pick and choose which scientific facts they wish to believe as well, but that doesn’t mean the media has to relay their lies without keeping them in check. This new petition is targeted at major media outlets, in the hopes that journalists will hold political candidates accountable for their climate change lies. Can you imagine media coverage that included a fair and balanced reporting of scientific facts? Sign the petition today and send a message to presidential candidates that it’s time to get real about the things they say about climate change in our fragile world.

Comments Off on Biohackers can give you night vision—by injecting it into your eyeballs

Definitely falling under the categories of “weirdest stuff we never thought we’d see” and “definitely not for the squeamish,” a team of biohackers in California claims to have given a man the veritable superpower of night vision . Science for the Masses , a group based in Tehachapi, California, achieved the feat by using a small turkey-baster-like device, a form of chlorophyll found in some deep-sea fish, and one exceptionally courageous biochemist.

Click here to view the embedded video. Los Angeles just got a lot more diverse – not from an influx of new immigrants, but via the discovery of 30 new insect species  living there. A new paper recently published in the journal Zootaxa revealed the results of the first urban biodiversity study of this scale: 30 new species of flies inside a single genus. This discovery is a unique accomplishment for a single research paper, and it’s made even more interesting by the fact they were all found within urban Los Angeles.
