Comments Off on Climate Science, Circa 1956 (Video)

Image: Screenshot, Climate Denial Crock of the Week One of the prevailing myths about climate change is that it’s a “new” science — merely the latest fad in an ongoing cycle of scientific doom-saying. You’ve almost certainly heard or read someone say something like this: “In the 70s, the scientists were all telling us the globe was cooling — now it’s warming. Well which one is it, durn it?” The implication is that climate science is some kind of a trend, and is apt to change course when those fickle scientists find something els…

Comments Off on Wind-Powered Vehicle Travels Faster than the Wind

A wind-powered vehicle recently shattered a world record by traveling 2.8 times faster than the speed of the wind that propelled it. Rick Cavallaro and his crew at fasterthanthewind.org knew they could break the record with their simple — but mind boggling — lightweight aerodynamic cart. The wheels of the vehicle spin the 17 foot wind turbine, which in turn gets a boost from the prevailing winds, transferring power back to the wheels

Comments Off on Research Findings Throw Some Doubt Into Theory of Peak Oil

In 1877 Russian scientist Dimitri Mendeelev suggested that the large deposits of oil and gas we find under the surface of the Earth could be made without the decay of long-dead organisms in a process called abiotic synthesis of methane. Since then the theory has been relegated to the back shelf due to a lack of evidence and the prevailing conventional wisdom that all deep oil and gas deposits arise from decaying prehistoric animal and plant material. While it’s no doubt that the decay of dead animals and plants is one pathway to the creation of Earth’s oil and natural gas deposits (potentially the largest), new research done with high-tech equipment simulating the conditions of deep earth suggests that Mendeelev’s theory is correct.
