New research “Illuminating Earth’s fault” by the University of California at Berkley proposes the use of existing underwater submarine fiber optic cables as seismographs. With the new network we will get a complete picture of the tectonic activity of our planet. A seismometer is an instrument that responds to ground motions, such as caused by earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and explosions. Seismometers are usually combined with a timing device and a recording device to form a seismograph.
President of Israel Reuven Riblin at the 22nd inaugural meeting of the Knesset said that Israeli Democracy is in a state of emergency and a government must be formed as soon as possible. Knesset speaker Yuli Edelstein addressed the long period of political uncertainty from April since the 21st Knesset was dissolved without making a government. They both called for a unity government. They said that Israelis will not forgive the leaders of the two major parties if a third election is held within a year.
When I was a young girl, there was a great respect for people of science (doctors, scientists etc.). We trusted them and felt that the contributions of all of our world scientists had made our lives healthier and better. Therefore I was very surprised and disappointed when in 2019 after 50 years of warnings from 97% of our most prestigious scientists that we are still living in a dangerous time of climate change, our legislators have as yet not taken the actions they need to take to protect us from this life-threatening calamity.
It’s said that nothing ever really gets done at the G20, which is currently meeting in Osaka, Japan. Nineteen member countries and the European Union agreed to a new deal to tackle climate change. Guess who was the lone holdout. President Trump was harshly criticized, at home and abroad, for praising Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, who ordered the killing of Washington Post columnist (who had legal residency in the U.S.) Jamal Khashoggi. There was one cautiously positive development to emerge from the summit, however. Trump and Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, agreed to restart talks and temporarily de-escalate the trade war.
Earth Hour will be held around the world between 8:30 and 9:30 pm local time on Saturday. If it is anything like past Earth Hours, we are going to hear a lot about reducing ‘carbon pollution,’ ‘carbon emissions,’ and our supposed ‘carbon footprint.’ Indeed, the Earth Hour Australia webpage, “Choose your climate future,” starts:
“Global warming, caused by carbon pollution from burning fossil fuels…”
A new report published by Future Market Insights (FMI) titled “Radar Market: Global Industry Analysis (2012-2016) and Opportunity Assessment (2017-2027)” states that with the increasing focus of governments on defense and the growing budget of the sector are expected to trigger substantial growth in the global radar market in the coming years.
Why are the public generally unaware of the important research that connects variations in the output of the Sun with climate change? They should know about it, since the Sun is responsible for far more climate change than anything we cause.
The reason for this ignorance is that the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the source of most people’s understanding about the field, was deliberately directed to study only the human causes of climate change.
The global airway management device market was valued at $ 1.17 billion in 2016, and is expected to reach $ 2.2 billion by 2025, expanding at a CAGR of 7.1% from 2017 to 2025, according to the latest report published by Credence Research, Inc. “Airway Management Device Market – Growth, Future Prospects and Competitive Analysis, 2017-2025.”
