“Two terawatts of photovoltaic would require installing 100 square meters of 15-percent-efficient solar cells every second, second after second, for the next 25 years. (That’s about 1,200 square miles of solar cells a year, times 25 equals 30,000 …
In an effort to raise awareness for the decline in honeybee populations around the world, they are helping fund research for scientists to learn more about the problem and find solutions.

The short version: We’ve known about carbon-based greenhouse gases (CO2, methane, etc) for 150 years, global warming for over 100 years, solar and orbital influence on climate for 68 years. Scientists started warning us about bad things coming more than 50 years ago. Presidents Johnson, Nixon, Carter, and Bush (senior) all warned us about the […]
