In further news, the US House of Representatives has continued their plans to bring about the Apocalypse, passing a bill (on almost exactly party lines) to effectively ban scientists from being on the EPA's scientific advisory board. Under these new rules, anyone who has done research on anything which the board studies is considered to have a conflict of interest, and therefore cannot sit on the board. Fortunately, simply having a financial stake in the matters which the board studies does not constitute a conflict of interest, so the scientific advisory board continues to be open to corporate public affairs officers, demented preachers, or roving madmen off the street.

The bill now proceeds to the Senate, where it has been referred to the Committee on Environment and Public Works. This is the committee chaired by Sen. Inhofe of Oklahoma, author of The Greatest Hoax: How the Global Warming Conspiracy Threatens Your Future and other light classics, in which he tells us that because of the existence of God, the "arrogance of people to think that we, human beings, would be able to change what He is doing in the climate is... outrageous." So in all, it's a good year for public affairs officers, demented preachers, and roving madmen off the street in all aspects of our government, and I forecast excellent career opportunities for each of these categories going forward.

The GOP-dominated House passed a bill Tuesday that effectively prevents scientists who are peer-reviewed experts in their field from advising the EPA.

They said, ‘What’s in the box?’
I said, ‘a large gold medal,’ as one does.
So they opened it up and they said, ‘What’s it made out of?’
I said, ‘gold.’
And they’re like, ‘Uhhhh. Who gave this to you?’
‘The King of Sweden.’
‘Why did he give this to you?’
‘Because I helped discover the expansion rate of the universe was accelerating.’

Pretty neat.
 
Love it, love it, LOVE IT!

We set out to redesign the electric kettle from the ground up, asking the question: how can we change people's habits of overfilling electric kettles in order to save energy?
Graduate Nils Chudy has devised a way to heat liquid in a cup, eliminating the wasted energy associated with boiling excess water in a kettle.

Looks like a mildly entertaining way to boil water, indeed.

It's important to know your closest family!
 
"[...] Isn’t that a lovely family tree? You can see that the orangutan branch is a long, long way from the human branch, as expected, and that the chimpanzee and human branch point is closer to us than to the point where gorillas diverge from chimpanzees and human, also as expected.

But look at the modern humans, in red. We’re a sadly cramped little cluster; there may be a lot of us individuals, but we’re all relatively closely related. Modern humans only arose roughly 100,000 years ago, and our branch expanded numerically fairly rapidly, but we haven’t had all that much time to accumulate as much genetic variation. We’re a close-knit side branch of the primate family tree, or we ought to be close-knit — we’re brothers and sisters together.

We’re definitely set somewhat apart from Cousin Neanderthal, the light blue line. But even there, the range of genetic diversity is pitiful compared to the chimpanzees.

The exuberant flowering of the chimpanzee lineage, all those blue and green and orange lines, tells us that these come from deep, distinct populations. All those beings we just lump together as chimps are actually genetically diverse, representing multiple long-established lineages — Central Chimpanzees are more different from Western Chimpanzees than we are from Neanderthal. Western Gorillas are far more distant from Eastern Gorillas than any branch of the modern human tree. The orangutans of Sumatra and Borneo, two islands separated by a few hundred kilometers, show far greater genetic differences than Chinese and African humans. [...]"

I am shocked, shocked to find that a cheap fossil fuel with cute name ("Natural" gas. Such a marketing feat. Natural things are all good and green!) will not help decrease emissions. Shocking!
 
PNNL-led research appearing today in Nature Advanced Online Publication shows that a global natural gas boom alone will not slow climate change. A comprehensive analysis of global energy use, economics and climate shows that without new climate policies, expanding the supply of inexpensive natural gas will not slow the long-term growth of global greenhouse gas emissions. Because natural gas emits half the carbon dioxide of coal, many had hoped that increased use of natural gas would help slow climate change. According to the study, a global abundance of inexpensive natural gas would compete with all energy sources – not just higher-emitting coal, but also lower-emitting nuclear and renewable energy technologies, such as wind and solar. The analysis shows that inexpensive natural gas would also accelerate economic growth and expand overall energy use. Read more about this research at http://www.pnnl.gov/news/release.aspx?id=3166.

True, so short-sighted. They are doing much better on the marketing part than on the reasoning side. This will only help us in the short run and most likely ruin our drinking water and cause other damages that can't be repaired.

Service is slow and inconsiderate. You may want to have a drink here in the off hours but avoid trying to get food during peak times.
