Would You Eat Insects to Save the Planet ?
So – The Question … “Would You Eat Insects to Save the Planet ?” – There are at least 3 reasons why eating insects makes sense – whether that’s “palatable” to you is another question all together 😉
Why Were Some Dinosaurs so Large ?
From the fossil evidence, it’s clear that, species by species, individual by individual, dinosaurs were more massive than any other group of animals that has ever lived on land. It’s as if today’s laws of physics didn’t apply back then allowing them to grow to such a gigantic size. So what could possibly explain this ?
Were the Dinosaurs Cold-Blooded like all today’s Reptiles ?
The problem with dinosaurs is that they lived a very long time ago- between 250 million and 65 million years ago – and the vast majority of our knowledge of them is based on fossilized bones and skeletons, which are all that have survived the ravages of time. So can we tell if dinosaurs were warm or cold-blooded ?
Could Huge Dinosaurs Really Sustain Themselves on a Veggie Diet?
On the face of it there seems little hope of working out precisely how a 75ft long, 50 ton Brachiosaur fed itself. However it is possible to make a few guesstimates, by assuming the present laws of physics and chemistry applied 65 million years ago.
Out of Africa : Did an Exploding Star Alter Human Evolution
A team of German scientists examining material from the seabed beneath the Pacific Ocean believe that they may have uncovered explosive evidence of an event that altered the evolution of humankind.
Will deforestation eventually cause us to run out of oxygen?
Environmentalists are fond of calling the world’s forests in general, and the Amazon in particular, “the lungs of our planet”, the implication being that unless we stop deforestation, we’re all going to be gasping for breath. But is this true?
Want to Study Volcanoes – Then look at art work
Vulcanologists have always found it difficult to find sources of evidence to examine to trace the history of volcanic eruptions on Earth and their effect on the climate. However scientists have recently hit upon a rather unusual new source – by studying paintings.
What is the Gaia hypothesis?
You may have heard of the name ‘Gaia’ as the personification of the Earth, or mother Earth. But in this article we look at a serious hypothesis that relates to mother Earth as if she ‘acts’ as part of a global system.
What drove the great migrations of the first millennium AD?
A curious thing occurred between 400-800 AD. In Europe and the far east, particularly China, a serious of mass population movements and incursions occurred. What historians are debating today is what caused these massive migrations.
Mr Global Disaster
What would you say if much of the causes of global warming and pollution that the world is currently struggling with could be traced back to one man ?
