I've started a development blog for the current iteration of my passion project, which I've recast as a library called Graphlike to help do graph-structured procedural content generation for roguelikes and other games.  Here's the first entry; enjoy!
Procedural content generation (PCG) is the hallmark of roguelike games, the crucial feature that make every play-through unique and extends replayability into the stratosphere.  However, roguelikes have a problem: their level...

Can't wait to hear more developments on this.  Sounds very promising, and it makes sense that this approach would bear fruit sooner or later.  The question is, would large-scale implementation run afoul of international treaties against terraforming the Earth?
Scientists at the University of Georgia have discovered a way to transform carbon dioxide trapped in the atmosphere into useful industrial products, possibly allowing scientists to make biofuels from CO2 in the atmosphere.

The big oil giants will likely try to suppress it, just as they have with everything else that threatens their immediate status quo. It will take a revolutionary paradigm shift across the board, in a very short time, for something like this to gain traction as a viable alternative. Hate to be a downer, but I have a feeling many of our energy leaders are of the type that would have to learn things "the hard way," after it's too late and all current resources are exhausted, before realizing their mistakes and shifting their focus. Hopefully I'm wrong.

tl;dr: Don't get cocky.

"While these new results suggest that tropical forests may be quite resilient to warming, it is important also to remember that other factors not included in this study, such as fire and deforestation, will also affect the carbon stored in tropical forests."
