Exploring bleeding edge experiments, oddities, new and bizarre dicoveries, and fact-checking conspiracy theories since 2008. No question is out of bounds and no topic is too strange for a deep dive.
One of scientists’ biggest fears about fungi and global warming is starting to slowly play out.
A far right militia butting into wildfire cleanup efforts is a dark sign of things to come if we don’t fight the climate crisis.
Don’t ignore the media attention to worldwide heatwaves. They’re a warning sign of why we can’t handle climate change.
Researchers from MIT want to deploy a raft of space bubbles to block sunlight and fight global warming. It probably won’t work.
Humanity won’t collapse from climate change thanks to the steps we’ve already taken. But we will still be in serious trouble if we don’t do more.
Chemists think they figured out the process of capturing the greenhouse gas to turn it into fuel for airplanes. But the big question is whether we’d actually want to do this.
Denialists are now imagining cabals of ecoterrorists burning down entire ecosystems so they don't have to admit that scientists were right about the symptoms of climate change.
Politicians aren't in a hurry to lower emissions even as the world's temperature rises. Can we buy more time to fix the environment with a giant orbiting sunshade?
Planes capable of suborbital flights reducing emissions from air travel sounds absurd at first glance, but a lot more plausible when you consider the technology they plan to use.
Are hurricanes and major storms getting more dangerous thanks to global warming or is that just what the news and pop culture tell us? The answer is a bit more complicated than you might think…
