Forests are supposed to help stop climate change. These forests didn’t
Forests play a critical role in the global carbon cycle, helping to mitigate climate change by storing carbon that would otherwise end up in the atmosphere. So maintaining sustainable forest management practices that maximize the trees’ ability to act as a carbon sink — for example, planting more trees than we harvest — has been …

Conspiracy Theorists Think Zika Is a Biological Weapon
It hasn’t even been a week since the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the Zika virus a global emergency, and already the conspiracy theories are piling up. Of course they are. A pandemic that’s sparked an abortion rights dystopia and legit discussion of genetic warfare? The Rockefeller family must be involved. Here are a few “theories” on the origin of the …

The 4 Reasons You’re Addicted To Technology
“Nearly everyone I know is addicted in some measure to the Internet,” wrote Tony Schwartz in a recent essay in The New York Times. It’s a common complaint these days.

Space experts warn Congress that NASA’s “Journey to Mars” is illusory
For the last half-decade, NASA has resolutely declared that it has embarked on a Journey to Mars. Virtually every agency achievement has, in one way or another, been characterized as furthering this ambition. Even last summer when the New Horizons spacecraft flew by Pluto, NASA Administrator Charles Bolden said it represented “one more step” on …

This NASA spacecraft will set sail propelled entirely by sunlight
It took NASA’s Voyager I probe 35 years to reach the edge of our solar system and enter interstellar space. But a lot has changed in space technology since Voyager launched in 1977. NASA’s new space sail—propelled only by the sun—can make that same trip in 20 years. On Tuesday (Feb. 2), NASA announced that …

We Finally Know What's Inside Rosetta's Comet
Scientists have long pondered what lies beneath the surface of comet 67P, but a study out in Nature this week has the answer: dust. Lots and lots of dust. I was hoping for space gremlins, but to planetary scientists this result is almost as exciting. Comets, frozen leftovers from the formation of the solar system, are a mixture of …

An innovative suitcase lab used to fight Ebola could help us untangle the Zika epidemic
The World Health Organization has declared Zika a global health emergency, because it believes the risks are high enough for a global response. And yet, we understand little about the virus and its effects on people. Zika’s links to neurological conditions, such as microcephaly—abnormal brain development in newborns—remain unproven. A team of Brazilian and African scientists (link in Portuguese) believe rapid …

Has the U.S. Really Reached an Epic Turning Point in Energy?
The United States is setting new milestones that suggest a fundamental, and possibly permanent, shift in its energy economy. Consider what happened last year alone.
