Chimps Learn New Language When They Change Locale
Thu Feb 5, 2015

Are You Gonna Eat That? The Future of Recycling
Tue Dec 23, 2014
I have been composting for around 20 years. Done properly, it does not cause vermin problems. The fact is putting food waste in trash cans is much worse. There are a lot more resources today that simplify composting. And I expect that in the future, most cities will pick up g …
EPA's New Rules Say Coal Ash Is Not Hazardous Waste
Fri Dec 19, 2014
Coal ash is stored where poor people live so it's not hazardous waste. If they stored it where rich people live (Malibu, Manhattan, parts of Connecticut, etc.) then it would be hazardous waste.
Global Warming Isn't Causing California Drought? Report Triggers Storm
Mon Dec 8, 2014
I live in San Diego and whatever the cause of the hotter weather, clearly its effect is to make the drought even worse. The lack of rain is bad, but any rain and moisture gets sucked out really fast by the higher than usual temperatures. So I agree that the report is wrong in ignoring pa …
