Sick online puzzle game where you can help science by working out the structure of proteins!
Basically the US Department of Defence was warned of the effects of climate change in 1979 by this elite science advisory group, and then again by the National Academy of Sciences, but chose to ignore the warnings. More evidence that instead of having democratic governments, we need scientific dictatorships :P.
Jason sounds interesting. A lot of big names have been involved, including Freeman Dyson and Steven Weinberg.
Incase you were worried – if you break your green lightbulbs you’re not going to breath in mercury and die!
The Large Hadron Collider seems to be getting all the press lately. I guess I still need to read a lot to find out what it actually does 😛
Currently reading; The Electic Kool-Aid Acid Test by Tom Wolfe. Interesting read so far. I’m glad I’ve read most of the references from the time; Hell’s Angels, On The Road, etc. Although as is the case with all this “New Journalism,” I’d like to know how accurate the book really is. Not very I suspect. Unfortuantly I haven’t read One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest, but I’m going to go buy it today, and maybe pause my reading to read that.
